" The phone rings in the middle of the night
My mothers says when you gonna live your life right?
Well, mother dear, we're not the fortunate ones.
Oh, girls they wanna have fun ".
Okay , quoting some of the best arguments over the news ,and fan blogs ,i'm gonna try and explain my point of
view. Although it's gonna be as nonsense and weird as what she did to the world .
I don't really expect people to understand her and her actions ,even most Japanese(including me) can't understand
But we do respect what she believe to be the right thing , in her own nonsense way .
most of us , specially in tumblr are nonsense to the world anyways .Or are we ?
Shaving your head is an act of apology (rarely seen btw) .
I am just glad she didn't kill herself cause this ,actually , when a japanese feel that she somehow "ashamed"
herself/family/whatever her believes was . This is something more common in here .I it happened a few times even
to people closed to me ,and this was not nearly any news to the CNN world at all .
So in some countries people shot others , getting into school , theaters ,
explode bombs . . . this weirdness and nonsense happens anywhere ,
. s . a . d . l . y . enough
and it's not connected to the nation believes , it's one person act .
Connecting what she did with Japanese culture nowadays is a litlle bit misleading interpretation in my opinion.
Shaving head was a punishment in ancient china to make a criminal feels shame and because when a person do
that to himself it's a sign of making a fresh start in life. Someone explained to me that's why all chinese monks
shaved their heads.
if this is true. honestly . idk .
that being told, since most of our believes come from our ancient times ,
and in Japan a lot of things came from the Ancient China ,this just might make some sense over this believe .
like i've said ,even most Japanese(including me) can't understand this incident .
but what we can do is respect her nonsense action ,if one judge it as such .
i am just happy to see her now , in this photo , with the support of the group members .
" My friends (especially female) are shocked by this and are in outrage about and seem to think Japan is under
some kind of sexist regimental scheme. She broke a contractual agreement and is apologising for doing so
publicly . I wish people would stop being like "Japan is fucked up" "Japan is weird" because of isolated incidents.
Japan just might have a very rich and interesting culture if people looked properly. "
This contractual agreement that she did ,or so it seems ,it's part of the group image .
As a japanese i know a lot of fans that actually respect them for their believes ,even if such people don't actually
follow the same believes .
And it's not like we don't do things alike ourselves , we respect vegans ,but some of us aet meat . We respect people
who devoted their lifes to help others , but we do not most of the time . We value the selfless act but instead ,
most of us are selfish ( human nature maybe ? )
try to think positively about most situations . . . ( i wish she had someone to tell her that )
before she shaved her f*ing head !
like everything and anything else in here today
let's give some space and respect .
