#1 They gave everyone every social benefit they could ask for BUT independence and then wonder where all the children went.

#2 Trailing daughter #2 says her Japanese friends don't even date lest they end up in a relationship. Plenty of friendships, but none "with benefits" for the same reason. It's not just the men who are remaining children.

#3 It's good that not all Japanese men look like the two in that pic -- your daughter's friends would have every reason (and explanation) not to date...

#7 "...getting a child through college can wipe out a family's finances". All the more reason for a greater Nippon acceptance of adult diapers.
Sheesh! Whatever happened to that old Bataan Death March frontier spirit? Was it angst/"Shinto" Guilt, perhaps? Our Pharaoh will be cautiously glad to know that these sanitary products are still readily available wold-wide. ;-(

#8 Various China Bloggers opine that the Nippon Babes should be dating and marrying Chinese Men instead to save their country - iff the demographic rates in Japan don't change or worsen, ITO China will likely takeover Japan anyway.
And they don't care about the Fukushima Radiation - iff it means upping the Japanese + taking control of mainland Japan, China will do it as it can afford to lose few 00,000, few Milyuhn, or even a few 00Milyuhn cleaning up Japan for the Japanese despite the threat of toxic mass radiation poisoning. THEY'RE MORE CONCERNED WID CONQUERING + SUBORNING JAPAN THAN NOT GLOWING-IN-THE-DARK.

#9 But, but, JM...I'd have thought that the NORKs had already cornered the "not glowing in the dark" market...
