It doesn't offend me in any way, but if speaking Japanese gets way out of hand (like the stupid wapanese kids saying, "Kawaii desu~") then I get really ticked off. It's nice to be influenced by another culture and know their customs, but it's really stupid to use it in a different country where those customs aren't even known. ;~;

I think that it's good to learn other languages. As long as you not a crazy obsession person. then it's cool.

I'm white (german to be persice (sp?) and I live in the U.S.) and I've learned Spanish and now i'm learning Japanese. I want to be a Japanese/Math teacher so that I can give to other children the appreciation of other cultures and such.

eh im learning japanese too, i dont think i would offend anyone... even going there on a trip. because i LIKE it, i dont give a shit about the nonsense idiots conjure about about people pretending to be apart of another culture or something... of course, i get worked up over it bcuz im just a contentious guy, yaknow... i really do know some stuff about japanese culture, but i dont think im better than anyone because i do...

(edit): oh yes, those ppl that always add "desu" or something to the end of their sentences have provoked me before... I like to think "who do they think they are", but try talking to them, and they are nice innocent people... You hate yourself for ever disliking them in the first place, and your the bad one in that picture... But at first I act like they are some kind of enemy or threat, trying to mock me.)

how can someone even begin to hate me because i think im better than because i in took a little knowledge about another culture(i dont, btw, but sometimes i make jokes inside my head like "laughing at everyone bcuz i know something they dont", they'd probably get annoyed. then when someone knows something i dont, i actually praise them... if they were laughing at me though id just want to pound them in)

they should be laughing at me instead, i mean, the person who gets offended by that may as well be the culprit them self. They are just looking for a fight, and want to get angry at a single person in a billion people and potentially unlimited scenarios.

There's this rich, obnoxious, Taiwanese? I just call him a Chinese dude but that's probably incorrect( nobody get offended by this though, the guy is a real jackass and he acts like he's better than everyone) always laughing and whatnot. There is definitely the impression that he sees himself as superior to others... If there's anyone to get angry at, it would be him. However, like most people, I'm more concentrated on ME, so I do think I am more important that others. I'm not going to be everyones servant now am I? To a certain degree, the only one I care about is myself, even though I can love and care for someone else, in the end that only meets MY need to feel good for helping someone else... What about actually going out of your way to do something you don't want to that's definitely for the good of another? Flying to Africa and spending your life savings to supply dying children with food? Campaigning and fund raising instead? I think I've rambled on enough... I've lost my head somewhere now... guess I was having too much fun writing this... I've always liked writing stuff or making storyboards for games and the like.

Having someone admiring me is in no spot of being offended. I don't even think that made sense. Chicken foot in your head!
