Herbivore Men (#141)
Remember fact #93 where I talked about MGTOW, the Men-Going-Their-Own-Way movement and associated groups like PUA, Pick-Up "Artists"?
Herbivore men are kind of – the opposite.
The term is used to describe young Japanese men, who have very little interest in relationships with women or in getting married. It's said to be associated with the Japanese labour system (oh, remember fact #64?) and the economic decline. More men are working as freelancers but because work and marriage is still very interrelated in in Japan, apparently many women seek out men with steady jobs.
The term was coined by author Maki Fukasawa and expresses the lacking "desire of flesh". It's supposed to contrast more assertive and proactive women, which are sometimes described as carnivorous.
In South Korea, there's a similar phenomenon. The Sampo generation describes a generation, which doesn't want to date, get married or have kids. The word is a neologism and means "three giving-up generation".
And what "three giving-up" means hair-wise, I'll tell you tomorrow.
