Does Japan Need Feminism? (Message to Western Feminists who want to bring Feminism to Japan)
I’ve been quite hesitating to upload this video although I’m really into this topic, because I was afraid of the backlash from haters.
But recently, I’ve talked with a feminist and she encouraged me a lot to speak my honest opinion to feminists. She said feminists are actually very open minded and willing to listen to objection. And she said I should trust them and more talk with them honestly.
So I chose to believe her and put out this video. To be honest, I’m kinda still shaking by the reaction. I’m scared a bit maybe many feminists got upset and start attacking me again.
But in the end, my channel is very small and surely not many western feminists will watch it in the first place. And I’d like to believe that they are actually open to hear other side and willing to compromise.
Unfortunately, time was very limited and I had to kinda rush, so maybe I made a lot of typos and grammar mistakes, but hopefully you understand my point and where I’m coming from even a little bit.
To feminists watching this video;
Like I said, if you’re not sure what I’m trying to say, could you leave a comment below and tell me what you don’t understand or what I’m missing.
I’ll try my best to response that and explain myself again. (I’d really appreciate it if you could write it down in Japanese.)
If you disagree, that’d totally OK. But I’d like to have a peaceful dialogue.
Thank you for taking your precious time to watch this.
