Japan, the Land of the Rising Son Sun has a little problem with some of its citizens. Well, one group in particular, the herbivore men. Move over baby boomers and make way for a less masculine and more passive Japan. Oh yes they are out there, men who have little or no concern for money or relationships but have a great deal of passion for fashion. Maki Fukasawa (columnist) was the first one to coin the phrase saying “In Japan, sex is translated as ‘relationship in flesh,so I named those boys ‘herbivorous boys’ since they are not interested in flesh.” Oh, blame it on the troubled economy of the 1990’s for this rise of the herbivore man, growing up in a world of uncertainty. Hmm,but how does one spot a herbivore man? Pretty easily…they are usually men in their 20’s and 30’s, are weak and fragile, non assertive, have no goals in life, prefer friendships with women than a relationship and dress damn fine. Hmm, sounds a tad gay to me? Not that there is anything wrong with that!
