SAOL:
Spoiler:

First, I'll explain how my class last year worked. Last year, I was a pretty miserable person and had deep neurosis/depression (this year, I love school). (NOTE: I started writing this in the present tense, but it should be past tense.)

I enjoy using taxonomy to group people I know. I did this with my class, and came up with these cliques.
Jocks
Cheerleaders
Quiet Jocks
Non-Cheerleaders
Brains
Norks
Outer Norks

The Jocks are, as the name implies, jocks (and their athletic friends who are not jocks). I generally didn't dislike Jocks, but they weren't my friends. The Quiet Jocks are called that because they WOULD fit the Jock category, but have a profound personality trait: quietness and calmness. They are more distanced from the Jock group. A long-time friend of mine is in their group.

Then there are Cheerleaders and Non-Cheerleaders. The Cheerleaders are just that. I generally disliked them. The Non-Cheerleaders are girls who aren't academic, and aren't cheerleaders. However, their behavior is pretty similar.

The Brains are the high-achieving girls. Most of them I have known for a long time. I used to like them much. I still have a (non-romantic) fondness for the Brains, but are distanced from them. All three of the girl-specific groups are "allied" cliques.

The Norks and Outer Norks are "allied" cliques. Nork is a portmenteau of "nerd" and "dork". I used the moniker talking to my family, and it became a recurring gag (my family has lots of in-jokes we frequently use talking to each other) and eventually stuck. There are four Norks. For the sake of their privacy, they have codenames: Doppelganger, Lanky, Bully, and Almost-Friend (AF). The Outer Norks consist of myself, Best-Friend (BF), and Mopey.

Okay, the Norks/Outer Norks all have these traits in common:
1. Love for anime.
2. Love for fantasy.
3. They actually read (usually fantasy).
4. They are the "unpopular kids".... by my understanding. The Norks can get along with the other groups, but not as well.

Specific to the Nork group ONLY is that they tend to be surprisingly smart for their.... ummm.... grades. They seem to know more about History and the current world than the other cliques. I can actually discuss the Eastern Front of World War II with Lanky and AF. Specific to the Outer Norks is that they are hated by everybody else, unconditionally. I don't know why.

Well, that was a long ramble. lol Okay, the Norks have members in the other classes. I grew up in a neighborhood of elderly Yankee Democrats, and my family doesn't go to church (yet), so I didn't have any friends outside of school.
What I notice is that kids who did have friends from toddler age have a long, rich history of friends, which confuses me because I don't understand it beyond the classroom. So, I can't tell what goes on with the Nork group beyond that tier.

Getting to the point:
No, I haven't told her, and don't intend to. Of course, I'll probably never see her after I graduate this year.

She probably wouldn't "like like" me. This is not self-deprecation, just a thought made based on the fact that she seems uninterested in boys and just kinds of ignores them. In fact, both of the other Outer Norks have crushes on her (she knows about theirs, LOL).

I just keep my emotions pent up. No point in having a girlfriend before you become an older teenager (at least), and no point in getting your heart broken.



Oh, and I'm dead serious about Japan being "perverse". lol They're culture's age of consent is lower than American culture's, and they have less taboos. One example is incest. More than Rednecks do, but not as much as (normal) Americans.[/spoiler]

That's one of the counter in their culture, taking that aside it's a very developed and good culture, and some of that you describe has been slowly disappearing overtime, it´s not close to be gone entirely, but not as bad as it once was.

The only problem I see with their culture at large is the high population of racists. This racism is covered up by their exceptional politeness (another one of their culture's good traits), but they've been isolated on those islands so long that the Yamato population is very bigoted towards blacks, Koreans, and Chinese (in particular).

Of course, this mostly is referring to the older population, like how it's mostly the older people in my country who are racist towards other ethnicities. And I'm just referring to actual Japanese, not Japanese in other countries.

They have lower hate crime rates, but I'd say that it is because of the fact that 98% (literally) of the population is Yamato, so they don't have many people to beat up. lol In the USA, we had plenty of "negroes" to lynch and Hispanics to steal land from.

That's just something that was on my mind. The "perverseness" isn't what I'd consider to be at a bad level (they are a huge producer of porn, though....).

This isn't just Japan, this is everywhere.

A country that was isolated that has come up so quickly from the shadows in every way (from industry and technology to a cultural adaptation) is something quite remarkable, it's not and it will never be a fast process, no matter how well they adapt to the world's current conditions.

I'm sorry, I don't know what you are talking about. I was talking about Pokémon, as you clearly can see.
