Lustrous.

A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”

I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”

I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”

…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

このトレーラーを見ることだけですごく感動された!確かに日本人との取引にかけては、白人としてアメリカで生まれた僕は自分の経験が差別などの上で多くのハーフと全く同じじゃないと同時に、時間が経って日本語力が流暢になっていくにつれて、自分のアイデンティティをどう定義したらいいのかという質問を自信満々で答えられなくなって、それで悩んだりすることが今でも結構多いから、そんな実存的な苦しみとユニークな喜びに同情するにかたくない。DVDが発売されたらきっと買うだろう。

I can already tell just by watching this trailer for a documentary of the lives of mixed-race people in Japan that this is going to be a really powerful film. I don’t discuss it very often with people that aren’t already embedded in the whole Japan circle, but I’ll admit that there have been times where I’ve felt identity crises of a sort because of my American heritage mixed with my Japanese fluency. I love what I do with my life, but sometimes I still find myself thinking about the big stuff like that. I can’t say those experiences line up completely with what mixed-race people have to go through in Japan, but certainly those experiences I’ve had have made me empathetic to the unique ups and downs that they experience in their lives. Sometimes I wonder if after I get back there and maybe I end up with kids of my own whether I’ll have to one day give them “the talk” about being mixed in such a densely “Japanese” society. Here’s hoping films like this and other things help Japan keep paving the way towards becoming a nation that really embraces its diversity widely one day.
