と思ってたら先週読んだ 毎日新聞のライアン・コネルのThe age でのインタビュー記事思い出しました。 http://www.theage.com.au/world/japanese-set-the-blogs-on-sleazy-australian-writer-20080704-31w7.html?page=-1
以下抜粋 "In an interview late last year, Connell admitted that his transcriptions might have contributed in part to a lazy notion that if Japanese are not totally inhibited by their strict social codes, then they are hopelessly debased by bizarre fetishes.
"It does concern me that we resort to these stereotypes all the time," said Connell, who arrived in Tokyo in 1989, coincidentally the year that WaiWai was launched. "Downtrodden salarymen, slutty schoolgirls, crazy housewives, corrupt old bosses and so on. … By and large I'm presenting to the English-speaking world things that the Japanese are writing about themselves."
