It is *not* an Orientalist myth. I was molested many times as a elementary/middle schooler bc of this sexualized culture, as were many of my friends. These images were, are all around us. It has *not* gotten better.

And most accepted it — even I accepted it — as the norm.
Also amazing that a *Human Rights Watch* officer would suggest a journalist should *be fired* for expressing disdain at the widespread acceptance of sexualizatuon of girls in Japan.
