ABOUT GAY ROYAL WEDDING

2018 年 6 月 20 日 Comments off

I tweeted about Lord Mountbatten’s gay wedding (UK)
today. In Japanese, of course.

Why?

It’s just because that the news has been translated in Japanese so quickly.

Due to the language barrier in Japan, it’s a kind of rare to see that type of news
gets translated so quickly except for the information
about the international politics and economy.

I don’t want to say this, but I sense
it happened because the news appears to be very sensational for the most of Japanese.
From my personal view, it seems they are expecting something “amusing” in it like what they expect to
the articles in trashy weekly magazines: the ones you see by the cash-machine at a supermarket.

Even if it’s so (to some extent), there’s a huge difference between the situation in which the political value of the wedding is
highly recognized in a society and the situation in which it is totally not.

Oh well.
