Algorithm Taiso

I don't really understand what it is about Japanese humor that doesn't click with some people. I find it to be utter perfection. It gives me such a feeling of peace and safety in my fine culture. I feel so safe among Japanese people. Their sense of humor makes the MOST sense. It's just so natural!

SOMETHING ELSE I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT: Guys wear tight jeans, talk kinda intellectual, make funny jokes, have a "sensitive" nature, or act not-quite-so-manly, and then everyone REALIZES it and calls them GAY.
Girls wear baggy clothes and play tons of sports and don't like hanging out with other girls and talk like guys and say vulgar things and get violent...
How come no one calls them LESBIANS?

As for the name calling phenomenon, I think it's a side effect of assigning pretty much everything a gender specific identity...
you know,
soccer: boys
taking care of the kids: girls
underarm hair: boys
plucking eyebrows: girls
chocolate ice cream: boys
strawberry ice cream: girls
etc. etc.

Oh, and wasn't the pacchin-gashin part straight out of Yaizu Wonderland? Pretty close anyway.
This 3 comments in a row thing feels pretty empowering.
I could get used to this.
