1. A no-no when first meeting
Matt has resided in Japan since 2006. This queer American boy loves art, music, culture, and his job teaching English to Japanese high school students.
Okay all you beautiful lesbians, gays, transsexuals, bis, and queers! My name is Matt and I’ve taken a position at the helm of this brand-new section on gay English etiquette for Japanese and international readers of Tokyo Wresting.
Once a month, I'll write little lessons on how one ought to speak English in order to sound like a good boy or girl. Also, wherever the opportunity arises, I’ll give tidbits of information on queer culture in the West.
Now, who am I, you ask? As said in my introduction, I’m a queer man from the States living in Tokyo, where I teach English to Japanese high school students.
I’ve spent the past few years venturing out into Shinjuku’s Nichome and, let me tell you, I’ve seen and heard all the trouble caused by language and cultural differences. By contributing here, I’m hoping to help us all sort some of these out. If you read this and you learn something that helps you get along better with queers from other countries, I'll be a very happy fag!
Today's little pearl of wisdom is: STOP asking, "Are you a top or a bottom?"! I must have heard this hundreds of times since coming to Japan! This drives me and all the other western queers craaaaazy!
I’ll tell you why in my next post, so be sure to read on...
