Huh, I thought for sure that most Japanese people held some distrust, or maybe even resentment, towards Americans for the whole nuclear bomb thing... Then again, /b/ maybe /b/ isn't the most trustworthy source of information.

I'd say when it comes to sexuality, the Japanese culture has been repressed for so long under formality and polite or honourable ways of acting, that the sexual frustration is starting to seep through. Japan never really had a swinging 60's release of a sexual identity crisis like the west did.

So all the weird stuff we see coming out of Japan, is sort of a more restrained Japanese 21st century version of 60's swingers culture. Where they're trying to let themselves go and discover their sexual identity, but also be polite and maintain their strong cultural standards. So it gets all confused and we have huge debauched hentai sex scenes, but the genitals are still blurred out, even though we know it makes no sense in the context of what is happening.

What sports are popular in Japanese High Schools? I think Baseball is one of them but besides that I have no idea.

Baseball is indeed very popular. Soccer is popular too as is Tennis. Basketball is gaining popularity and is becoming really trendy. (Japan really likes team sports)
Kendo is a more prestigious sport that some young men choose and Kyudo (where it is more common for girls to learn this too) is viewed as a traditional art. I actually sometimes see girls coming back from school with gaint bows slung neatly against their backs on the subways.

Consider the following:

Your worst mistake was excusing yourself with being tired and calling people who criticize you 'haters'.

Not to mention that part: "if people decide to complain in the future I will kindly ask them to go learn two languages very different from their own". Being bilingual isn't really that much of an achievement, but that's not even the point. The point is, if you really are a teacher, you should know the language you teach VERY well. It means that if you screw up, people have every right to criticize you even if they know only English, and even if they can't write well. That's because you are a teacher, you are supposed to know the grammar like the back of your hand. If you try to dismiss their arguments with an irrelevant 'I know more than 1 language anyway, what about you?', then I'm afraid that you already lost.

That's actually most of what I was about to say. It wouldn't even bother me that much if you didn't try to delete all comments which pointed out your mistakes and act like nothing had happened.

That passive aggressive 'I'm better than you haters anyway' was just the last drop. To sum up- your mistakes weren't even as half as bad as your behavior afterwards.

Your free to have your opinions even if it means you follow all comps with your bullhorn repeating what has already been said.explained,and closed. What was is in the past and I am moving forward to mend my mistakes. I'm actually flattered you keep showing up and look forward to it in the future

I'm actually in agreement with bestfoxgirl - and I strive to stand on neutral ground and see things from a neutral perspective much more than your average joe.

You haven't conducted yourself in the way I'd expect anybody in a teaching position to do, you seem to lack the incredibly high level of knowledge that a teacher should have, and you keep making excuses. You can't even own up to your mistakes.

From what we've seen on FJ these past couple of days, I'd strongly suggest that you re-learn English, because I'm a 19 year old boy with a college-level English qualification with absolutely no legal rights to teach and I'm miles ahead of you. Every mistake you make, you will pass onto your students, and if that doesn't make you feel guilty then you're definitely in the wrong profession.

Ok, now I am almost 100% sure that you are not a teacher, 3 mistakes in one line of text was just a too much. And your childish attitude (thumbing me down? Lol) combined with wrong usage of words(well, maybe strange usage of words. They weren't mistakes, but that's surely not what a skilled person would write) and your lack of comprehension... that gave you away.

I have to admit, you are a formidable troll. Saying that you are a person responsible for education of many young people, you made a comp with a good deal of mistakes, but you kept it on a reasonable level, so you were credible. That was a genius move, indeed. With your 'lack of skills' play, you managed to anger a lot of people. Such things always strike a nerve.

If you didn't write 'your' instead of you're and 'if it means you follow' instead of 'following', I wouldn't know. I'd simply think of you as of a childish person who got a job without being qualified for it, of a person who can't cope with criticism. You overdid it, you tripped, but I'm not even mad. That's truly amazing and now I have to say, I respect you. The thing that you pulled of... simply astonishing. The Grammatical Adler cried at my shoulder, but I... I was just shocked. And not in a bad way.

All in all, I have to admit, you are a truly amazing person. I have never, ever seen such a malicious plan, executed so gracefully. I bow before you, for you are a true genius.

So i'm just curious if i understand the sex thing, were you saying that because they are so uptight about sex, that they over emphasis it in media. Also curious if the "you only accept after refusing twice" thing is real?

The sex issue is so confusing in Japan right now.
1) OP is quite right about people being in gerneral embarrassed to talk about it. I'vebeen living in Tokyo for around half a yeah now and I still have only seen 3 people kiss. SHowing public displays of affection is not done in japan. In fact, it isn't even really shown in the homes. Japanese people do not have sex in their homes normally (I mean, I'm sure some do) But from what i have been told by my japanese friends married or single people go to "love hotels" when they want to have sex. They told me this is parlay due to the thin walls in japanese homes. The japanese pollution is also dwindling because…people have just stopped having sex. they aren't interested in it anymore. Why? I can really only guess but:
1) women are staying in the work force and creating careers for the first time. if you get pregnant you are as good as fired for the rest of your life.
2) masturbation is at a whole different level here.

basically because they are so "uptight" about sex in their daily lives they need and want an outlet.
and…i don't know what "you only accept after refusing twice" thing is…

Thank you for answering the sex question that really clarrified things, as for the refusal thing, i've been told that in japan people will offer a gift or invitation out of politeness, and that your supposed to nicely refuse the first two times it is offered. Supposedly its only a real honest offer if they try to offer it to you three times.

No worries!
and ah, I see what you are saying. While I havent been directly told about the etiquette of accepting gifts, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is true. I know that this refusal of a gift thrice is true for when in India.

I know you probably have no way of answering this, but what do you know about the yakuza there?
I mean, outside it has a specific image, but mayb it's viewed differently in Japan.

From my understand (talking about it with japanese neighbors) the yakuza are actually seen in a positive light right now. It was the Yukuza who stepped up and got organized and started helping people after the horrible earthquake and tsunami in japan, even before the government. The yakuza were the ones who provided water, food and homes for people.

It's actually the chinese mafia that you want to say clear of.

They are generally viewed as a negative thing, although they do not commit petty crime, and actually run legitimate businesses (though somewhat questionable at times). In Tokyo, there are even some buildings that have the Yakuza group names on them.

Politicians often collaborate with them secretly. For example a sizable population of Nigerians live in certain wards of Tokyo and tend to disrupt the generally crime-free society of their areas. Police cracked down on their crimes, but soon almost all arrests in these areas consisted of Nigerians. The Nigerian embassy then accused the Tokyo police of being racist and targeting Nigerians because of their skin and forced the forced the police to back down against crimes committed by Nigerians. However, this did not stop the Nigerians from continuing to commit crimes and they still had to be dealt with. Thus politicians and the police collaborated with the Yakuza as an alternate means of authority to deal with the Nigerians unofficially.

I've seen less mistakes this time around in the grammar. I've read the description and to be honest languages are not that hard for me. I'm Slovenian and I speak 4 languages fluently and write perfectly in them aswell. You just gotta do your best, even if it ruins your pride or depresses you, it's still something to definitely look at, painful or not. It's how you get better, too. You should really hold your pride back and listen to what everyone says, it helps you learn even if you have pride as an english teacher, you can always learn more. Criticism from others helps too. Because that's the teacher's job, to teach their students the language perfectly without mistakes. But I do understand it's a bit difficult to be perfect in all aspects, you should still do your best. People can be dicks and trolls but that shouldn't really have to end up in you taking down the content. Tell them you screwed up and carry on, giving them a reason on why you screwed up makes people think it's an excuse, which backfires even more. Eitherway, good content.

Thank you for your wise words and many valid points . Also, four languages wow wow. English and Japanese are as far as I've gotten but I'd like to learn a few more. I used to know quite a bit of Polish when I was younger(I had a polish neighbor) but it's since slipped out of my brain.
