    Well i how can it not be natural? And its not like i meant that all girls like it when two guys kiss. Just you know... Personally from what i have seen (which is very little) homosexuality seems very open and accpeted in Japan. Or am i wrong, what do you think?

    Homosexuality has been completely accepted throughout Japanese history. Some samurai even claimed that the love between boys or men and boys is the purest of all. Women were seen as negative to those warriors. Maybe even the bringers of bad luck.

    However, due to the western influence the Japanese have taken on a more negative approach to homosexuality.


    This IS the Japanese Culture forum after all...

    Marriage is a completely different thing.

    Gay marriage is not allowed in Japan. Only The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa and the American state Massachusetts allow it.

    Are the gay rights activists in Japan pushing this much or no? Are they trying to push the legalization of gay marriage?
