From the Nishi Nippon Shimbun
“A Nishi Nippon Shimbun salesman (58) was arrested in Takeo City, Saga prefecture for breaking the prefecture’s ordinance against indecent acts. The suspect allegedly approached a twelve-year old elementary school girl, who was playing inside the Takeo Velodrome, and raised his t-shirt to reveal the women’s lingerie he was wearing underneath. The suspect has admitted to the act.”
When I first read this article, I couldn’t help but wonder what would have happened if a middle-aged woman went up to an elementary school boy and raised her skirt to show him the Spiderman underwear she had on underneath. Would she have been arrested, too? I suspect she wouldn’t.
Far be it for me to try to defend chikan--the flashers, streakers, gropers, and exhibitionists of Japan. I honestly can’t understand how doing such things can be sexually gratifying for them. I do realize that in this crazy world of ours, it really does take all types.
