Things you can do in China but not in America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StoLiIqU8jo Best part is they are SJW free. They don't get but hurt over anything, unless you make fun of their country.

Things you can do in Japan but not in America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWBEXwGQmm0 Walking around the streets and drinking. Love that.

anyone know anything you can do in any countries that you can not do in America feel free to post I add them to the first post.


Let us discus if it is a good thing or a bad thing that they allow some thing, that probably never be allowed in America.

LOL.. Ok lets go there I don't see why we don't make another bathroom, for those that are trans. The Trans Bathroom.. how about that, their is talk in doing just That in America.. hell even Trump has no issue with Trans people and their Bathrooms.. He just believes its not an Issue for the American Government, but instead for states to choose the laws for such things. So it will be dealt with by the sates that's all.. government outside of your state will not be taking a side. At least if Trump has his way.


But like I said I have no Issues with a third Bathroom being issued for to keep everyone happy.

'Yes having three bathrooms in a bar be a pain. But then in places like schools, and such that have 10 or so bathrooms in the first place should not really be much more costly. If at all.

Also in most small stores everyone shares the same bathroom no matter your sex anyhow. So to me it is not even a thing, I don't see it affecting anything. I have gone Into a female bathroom to use it wen a mans bathroom was out of order, its not a big deal. Its more people afraid that pedophiles will use opportunity to target kids.

Well a third bathroom is inconvenient to many establishments and could potentially result in further alienating trans people to the general population. And I have no idea how the butterscotch prez came to the conclusion that transgender rights should not be enforced by the government seeing as that's kind of how it's supposed to work with civil rights and all.

The bathroom aspect is a state issue.

Like a said, most people don't give a damn.


Like the old saying the racist person is the one that brings race into everything..

Most people don't really care.. the only issues I see down the line, will be created by professional victims, and a small minority hate groups, that already exist so the adding of new bathroom will not do anything to add to any outrage or actions already being taken.

Uh oh...you sound like a reasonable individual, I'm not sure what to do in this situation. Seriously though, while I agree that everyone just needs to chill out...that won't happen. Some people have to find fault with every solution, for instance: there should be an equal amount of transgender restrooms, why is the transgender restroom in such-and-such place? What about the fact that transgender individuals typically identify as either F or M when all is said and done. They may not want to use a "special third bathroom".

btw: if you told me that there was a third public restroom that LESS people used, i would use it in a heartbeat (have you seen some of these public restrooms...make you end up with PTSD)

Some people have to find fault with every solution, just spit-balling here: there should be an equal amount of transgender restrooms, why is the transgender restroom in such-and-such place? (if you decide to convert restrooms, because there are usually only two next to each-other). Plus, let's not even get into the fact that transgender individuals typically identify as either F or M when all is said and done. They may not want to use a "special third bathroom".

well you think about most bars, bathrooms are big enough for one or two people max anyhow, so they don't really need extra bathrooms because they can just shut the door lock it do their thing than leave.

As for schools once seen and people get used to, kids and adult will lose any really issue with them. Once it becomes the norm. 3 years max.. Also I have lived places with coed bathrooms. (so most things is in my eyes are normal.)

Japan vs America:
  • Wa - "Harmony" - One of the major differences I notice when I lived in Japan (as well as when I go there for work) is that independent virtues aren't really important in Japanese culture. So, for example, most of the things that we squabble and bicker about here on Crunchyroll's forums (like the bathroom thing) wouldn't necessarily come up in Japan (traditionally). It's more important to be submissive to your superiors and/or elders. I notice this quite often seeing as I'm officially an executive in the company I work for, despite feeling like a rather chill person who's working with others - the expectation is that I'm always given respect by those who aren't on the same "tier" as me in Japan. It's strange (to me).
  • Pushing on Public Transit Systems (train/buses) - It's pretty natural in Japan to push people when trying to fit into a train or bus. I'm 6'4", 240lbs. I have no problems pushing around the vast majority of Japanese when trying to get onto the train (fitting, on the other hand, may always be a complication). But when I've done this in London, England or in some transit systems in America... it's seen as overly aggressive/offensive.
  • Holding the Door - This is something that's a little interesting to me. I have the habit of holding the door for people (American/Western value). In Japan, it isn't considered "rude" to not hold the door open for someone (women or men). When I asked around, the most simplified answer I'd get was "Being polite has nothing to do with holding doors. It's about mannerisms."


One thing that is part of the "Wa" mentality in Japan is being indirect. Confrontation is not something that's really desired in Japan and seeking it means that you're being disrespectful. Passive-aggressiveness/indirect insults are pretty common. At work, if I point out an error in someone else's programming or an error they've made in implementation (to our Japanese customers or partner), then it becomes a major issue. It's disrespectful and shows arrogance (no matter what "rank" you are in the company). Conversations like that should happen behind closed doors and only during the time for a review (one on one). Not when you're in an open room where it's considered an unnecessary confrontation. If you confront someone even personally outside of work, that's considered rude/disrespectful. It's the complete opposite of American/Western mentality - where you'd consider an indirect comment as disrespectful and expect a confrontation to deal with it one on one.

I like this...maybe they should change the term transgender to "Hideyoshi". Transgender sounds like some kind of morphing robot.

In a lot of other countries it is fine for women to walk around topless. In the US it is usually considered indecent exposure with the exception of a few select locations.
