yes thank you. I’ve been hearing this argument too much and it simply doesn’t make sense. Get your facts right.

Street harassment is not a compliment.
Japan > Everywhere else
This is Japan in a nutshell. Forget all the crazy stuff with the weird tv programs and the cosplaying—that’s just the outer shell that gets attention because it’s unusual. This, this is the beauty of the country. I’ve had little grandmothers chase me down because I dropped my shinkansen tickets. In amusement parks, the attendants do their upmost to get lost items (usually cardigans or kids’ shoes) back to the owners—before the owners even realize they’d lost said item(s). I’ve had complete strangers not only give my thorough directions but have offered to drive me to the place I needed to go.
It is so, so, so hard to go back to the States after you get the J-treatment. I mean, Japan has its downside (“What is this madness you call pizza???”), but the general attitudes of everyone—even the so-called hardcore yankees (two of whom who, on a blazing summer day, helped me find one of my schools when I was heinously lost in the labyrinth that is the neighborhood in which said school is located)—is the epitome of the mindset that I wish everyone would adopt. Because yelling at people gets you nowhere. And being able to empathize with people kinda helps make this country a really nice place to live in.
Reblogging again for THIS ↑↑↑↑

So I’m at Great Bay and just realised Zoras are perverts; there’s this one Zora who’s trying to break in to Lulu’s room or something (what?) and this other Zora swam all the fucking way from Great Bay to the Pirates Fortress just to have a peak at the Pirate women.
First off, you’re a fucking Zora. You’re supposed to fall in love with fish people or something.
Second, ISN’T THIS A CHILDRENS GAME I PLAYED THIS ALL THE TIME WHEN I WAS LITTLE.
There’s no food in my house

Oh my gosh people, be nice to your waiter/waitress, it’s not their fault that your food is cold or if it’s under cooked. Be nice to the cashiers who are still training and can’t ring up your items as quickly as you want. If a stranger smiles and says hello to you, smile and say hello back! It’s just common courtesy, I don’t understand why people have to be so rude.
I AGREE ESPECIALLY ON THE FIRST PART. I’ve been a waitress for 5 years straight and some people are just really frickin rude. Serving you does not mean that we are not human, we try to be nice and have you enjoy your meal, but we are not wizards. Which is why, when I’m out for dinner, it really pisses me off when people are irritated by how long the food is taking/when they can order/etc. Ugh

The sea provides a healing magic that goes beyond drugs and prescriptions. It forces us to become involved with it. The ocean draws on the strength of plants from the Earth, the water that is a part of all life and the mineral salts from which our bodies are created.
