Gold Coast men brag: “Raping Japanese girls is easy!”
Themis 3/20 By Anthony J. Bryant
The magazine indicates that Japanese women on vacation in Australia are in danger.
It describes several sequences of events that clearly culminated in rape (e.g., at knife-point), and others that are less easy to interpret.
The article includes quotes from Japanese residents in Australia, including a photographer who says, “Japanese women who go with foreigners who talk to them are baka(stupid).”
Another man says that it's not reipu, it's just fornication, as “The women's standards of sexual morality are low.”
It's not clear who was actually responsible for the quote used in the headline.
Also, although the word reipu is used, it's not clear if this means exactly the same as “rape” in English; in some instances it may mean “seduce.”
One more point: not one of the people talked to or quoted in the article is Australian; all are Japanese. (AJB)
