This .. is a very famous band called SMAP. They're dressed like women. This is an advertisement in a public area.

That's the picture he used for his album cover. Here's a picture of what he usually looks like.

Japan had a series of comedy shows with a character named "Hard Gay." I'm not linking to it, but feel free to Google it. This was on National T.V. during Prime Time. He does a lot of ... thrusting. And they show him at playgrounds playing with kids in ....some interesting clothing....... No, seriously. In America, it wouldn't fly. In fact, it would probably be marked as obscene. In Japan, it's OK. (I do not suggest Googling the Youtube vids of that at work. It's hilarious, though...and most are dubbed in English.)

People say homosexuality will destroy their world. It's ridiculous. It's as ridiculous as saying eating oysters (also banned in the same area of the Bible) will destroy their world. Why hasn't it destroyed Japan? Or England? Why do people even care? It doesn't make any sense. If our elected leaders hate it so bad, why aren't we railing at other countries to change their horrible gay ways? It must not be that important.

Really, "Hard Gay" is your example of Japan's accepting of homosexuals? "Hard Gay" is a character - a parody of American gay subculture. In fact, "Hard Gay" is played a married heterosexual Japanese man (not that surprising - most cross-dressers are heterosexual men - see Rudy Giuliani) Much of the gay community in Japan finds "Hard Gay" offensive and indicative of the gross stereotyping and intolerance of homosexuality in Japan.

Japan is strange with it comes to sexuality. Japanese porn is blurred out, yet pedophiles can buy panties out of vending machines.
