‘Queer Eye: We’re In Japan’ Makes Audience Go “Doki-doki” #Queer_EyeNovember 9, 2019
I feel like this is an accurate description of anyone watching Netflix’s Queer Eye.
The episode begins with Kiko meeting the Fab Five in a gay bar in Tokyo and explaining to them what the problems the queer community faces, without ever letting an actual queer person speak.
Queer Eye has managed to draw a broad-enough picture of Japanese society by sharing the life of a single, middle-aged woman Yoko, who has dedicated her life to helping others and her community, Kan, a young, gay man in a long-distance relationship with a British man, Kae, a young woman who is struggling with the strict beauty standards of her country and finally Makoto, who has problems communicating with his wife and sharing his feelings with her.
Each episode also brought forward an issue I had come across while living there.
When Kan talks about the fact that he never felt like he was able to express himself and live life as a gay man whilst living in Japan.
He talks about the experience of queer kids everywhere in Japan, but also in other countries.
When we as Western people watch her episode and her struggles with body image, it might seem bizarre to us why she is struggling, but you have to keep in mind that Japan (and other Asian countries) are much more strict when it comes to beauty standards and the way they are enforced.
Finally, when Makoto shares his struggles about connecting on an emotional level with his wife, we can see the deeply-rooted difference in expressing feelings and emotions in different cultures.
Finally, Jonathan, the grooming expert, shows how taking care of yourself and investing in some time for care will help you feel better about everything in your life, not just your hair.
All in all, Queer Eye: We’re In Japan is just as heart-wrenching and uplifting as the last seasons, with the added bonus of showing not only a different culture but also giving inspiration to viewers of how they can change their lives for the better.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
