::::: Class Report on February 25th, 2015:::::


Last Wednesday on Feb 25th was the first day to have "Trend Culture Class (TCC)", and 11 participants including 3 new members came to join us! The main topic was "Gender Stereotype”, which we picked up HOT words related to the topic and discussed openly for 2 hours.

 

At the opening, ICT organizer Jojo did the presentation on today’s keywords – Himono Onna, Pro-Kanojo, Bento-Danshi, Ikumen and so on, which words became popular just recently. Some participants didn’t know some of them, even though they are Japanese.

 

After the presentation, we split into three groups to discuss each topic – the first group is to talk on the question, “Do you have/do something lazy (it should be ashamed but cant stop doing the habits or behaviors) at home like Himono-Onna?”. The second group’s question which is related to Pro-Kanojo is “What do you think of Pro-Kanojo? What is a “professional” girlfriend/wife for men?” And the third group talked about men – Ikumen, Bento-danshi and Teishu-kanpaku.

 

Regarding Pro-Kanojo (PK), some members said the relationship between PK and her boyfriend/husband is more like a business relationship – for example, a woman wants a luxury environment with lots of money, and a men celebrity wants a perfect girlfriend/wife to keep his great/safe reputation. It doesn’t have to be a specific person, but a woman with the conditions could be PK.

 

Thank you for joining our first TCC class, we hope all participants had a great time!

We are looking forward to seeing you at next class!
