I heard that singer Hamasaki Ayumi is a gay-rights supporter, so I don’t mean to be harsh on her. But this image, plastered on a car hood outside Yoyogi Park, alternately fascinates and haunts me. I am amazed that such a pornographic look can circulate in public with no friction. Is this a day look? Should children see this?
I understand that the male gaze prizes artifice over reality, and that simple drag tactics are very effective in attracting male attention (big hair, heavy make-up, scary long nails, and a blank look). I am not shocked that these images are popular, but I am surprised to see them in the daylight and on the street.
Just remember that this hot politician’s party daddy is the
decrepit Abe, who 7 years ago resigned from the Prime Minister job after 10 months of service due to stomach problems. Why is he leading this cute guy’s party, again? Are they trying to confuse the feminine public? He seems very confident about his abilities to count to three using his fingers.
Update: My bad. Actually this pretty politician, with a cloth condom on his mike, works for another decrepit political daddy, Noda, current prime minister and pro-nuke anti-populist. And we haven’t even mentioned far-right wing Ishihara, who is against women, gays, immigrants, and French people, plus he’d like to add more friction (and not the sexual kind) with China.
