Man's Fantasy Island (also known as Japan)
Quite often in Japan there is exploitation of women. More often than not it is of young women.
I get mad when I hear this type of news, and I'm sure women everywhere will be awe-struck at exactly what goes on each and every day in Japan.

TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese Buddhist priest who was arrested on suspicion of having paid sex with a teenage girl said he was under stress and had given in to lust. Itsushi Ehara, 73, chief priest at a temple in the western Japanese prefecture of Hiroshima and also head of a nursery school, paid the 15-year-old girl 80,000 yen ($675) to have sex in a hotel in downtown Tokyo, a police spokesman said on Friday.
"I could not resist my lust. A lot of stress built up from running the school," Ehara was quoted by Kyodo news agency as telling police.
Ehara, who is believed to have met the girl through a prostitute-dispatch service, is also suspected of having paid for sex with several other teenage girls over a period of two to three years, Kyodo quoted police as saying.
Japan has long had a relatively lax attitude toward sexual exploitation of young people. Teenage prostitution -- known as "compensated dating" -- was outlawed in 1999, but it still goes on, though less openly than before.
This gender inequality just shows that Japanese women need to get there act together. Older generations of women sit by and watch on appathetically as corrupt Japanese men, so enfatuated with the sick customs they have established, that I don't know what to do. Is anyone really at fault? Is it those specific Japanese men who nurture an economy which cators to their sexual appetites, or the women who go along with it because they are so repressed they don't know what to do with themselves fault? I hardly think that placing the blame for the actions of one pervert is fair, but maybe sitting back and doing nothing about it isn't right either.
May I remind you that not all Japanese men (or men in general) are this perverted, but in Japan the overall acceptance for violence and sexual crimes against women are often glanced over as merely what is, is. Those who are in the category that it's okay to blatantly repress and restrict a woman's rights and privilages have definately created a "man's fantasy island" for themselves to enjoy. They have regulated very precisely the exact amount of repression needed to make women submit to their wild sexual fantasies. This is something I don't agree with and I don't think any woman should have to either. Yet this type of abuse against women isn't anything new, as the news points out, it has gone on long before this particular case, and it will continue as long as people idlely sit by and let it.
