Nearly half of the Caucasian foreigners living in Tokyo have experienced racial discrimination in the form of being viewed as sex objects, according to a survey released by the the government on Tuesday.
The majority of male respondents revealed that their bodies had been the target of sexual desire.
“I’m basically just a piece of white meat,” said one man.
White meat is traditionally eaten in Japan during Christmas or when housewives succumb to a male dominated society that turns a blind eye to cheating.
“I feel very vulnerable stepping into a crowded train,” said another white man.
“I always feel the overwhelming yearning of women wanting to touch my body.”
