Gaijin of Doom

I read on twitter that the Japan Times wants people to write them letters outlining how they think working conditions for women in Japan can be improved.

I know how it won't be improved - by a bunch of gaijin making a bunch of half-arsed suggestions.

You are there to teach English people, you are not there to save the natives or show them the light of your Western culture.

And seriously, if I was going to invest time and energy into improving conditions for women, I'd be looking at countries where the working conditions mean that women are raped and killed, where they have to work ungodly hours in ungodly conditions to barely survive.

If you live in a first world country and you can't be bothered doing anything to change your lot, then why should I care?
