Have you been a victim of sexual assault in Japan? How did police respond?

Stop Julien Blanc (日本語版)日本女性へ暴力的行為を呼びかけるナンパ伝道師らを止めよう

The following appeal has been written in Japanese by a Japanese-American to explain why Julien Blanc and his ilk should be banned from Japan.

日本語で、性暴力を呼びかける自称「ナンパ師」と彼の会社の日本侵出を防ごうとするキャンペーンを紹介させていただくことにしました。寄稿したアマンダ・ディさんは日系アメリカ人で、この運動の創設者の一人です。

By Amanda Day

名の知れた”デート術”コンサルタントが世界中をめぐり、男性らに女性の扱い方、ときとして性的な迷惑行為や暴行を伝授している。デート方法を教えるアメリカの企業リアル・ソーシャル・ダイナミクス社のジュリアン・ブランクは、かつて公然と日本女性を辱めたが、今後のセミナーにむけたさらなる話題づくりのため、来週の日本行きを計画している。

Change日本における女性への暴力的行為をひけらかす動画は、ユーチューブにおいてブランクのソーシャル・メディアのアカウントに投稿された。リアル・ソーシャル・ダイナミクスならびにブランクは、登場する男性らが現地法律に違反する複数の動画を通じて、犯罪行為を推奨している。日本国の刑法第174条(公然わいせつ)ならびに第176条(強制わいせつ)により、暴行または脅迫によって他者に対しみだらな行為に及ぶのは、違法である。動画によれば、その行為はあからさまに誇示されていた。第176条に基づき、暴行または脅迫により他者に対してみだらな行為に及ぶのは処罰の対象となり得る。ただし被害者が法的機関に訴えを起こさないかぎり、対応がなされることはない。

暴力行為の証拠はブランクが日本で撮影した動画にとどまらない。彼のウェブサイトならびにソーシャル・メディアのページでは、ヨーロッパの複数の国において女性を窒息させる行為を誇らしげに掲げ、男性の性的嗜好を満たすために女性を抑圧し支配するのにそれが有効であると吹聴している。彼はこの暴力為の記録のため、ハッシュタグ #ChokingGirlsAroundtheWorld (世界の女性を窒息させる)を開始した。

さまざまな暴力行為手段の提唱とともに、彼は多くの国籍や民族に対して筋金入りの性差別発言を披露している。

  • 日本:”ただ、女をつかめばいい…気持ちを軽くさせるのに、ピカチュー、ポケモン、たまごっちあたりの言葉を叫ぶんだ”
  • “少なくとも東京なら、白人の男は、なんだってできる。通りですれ違いざまに女の頭をただつかみ、こんな風に頭を、ほらどうだと股間にあてる。頭をだ、股間に押しつけて、ピカチュウと言えばいい、ピカチュウTシャツを着て”

ジュリアンのセミナーを阻止すべくジェニファー・リーが請願を開始し、支援の輪がひろがっている。日本への入国を拒否する日本版の請願も開始され、その数は24時間で18,000を突破。彼が組んでいるセミナー予定をそれぞれ阻止対象とした活動も、予定されている。

この運動の最終目標はリアル・ソーシャル・ダイナミクスがジュリアンを解雇し、方針を見直して女性への攻撃を非難する声明を出すことにある。願わくば、請願とメディアへの喚起により、同社は経済的にそうせざるを得なくなるであろう。お読みの方々には実施中の請願にご署名をいただき、周囲へも知らせ、ジュリアンの行為に対しリアル・ソーシャル・ダイナミクスが行動を起こすよう要求していただきたい。ジュリアン・ブランクは仮名と推定され、われわれは法的な問題のため彼の本名特定への手がかりを求めている。

末尾にブランクのツイッターアカウントに記録された嫌がらせ行為のスクリーンショットを付記しており、以下はツイッター用に短縮された日本語change.orgへのリンクである。

The difference between a pick-up artist & getting picked up for crimes in Japan.

updated on November 19th, 2014

What’s the difference between being a “pick-up artist” and getting picked up for crimes in Japan? 

If you’re a white male in Tokyo, you can do what you want. I’m just romping through the streets, just grabbing girls’ heads, just like, head, pfft on the dick, head on the dick, yelling, ‘Pikachu,’ with a Pikachu shirt (on). — Julien Blanc, dating expert at Real Social Dynamics

One of the most reviled misogynist “pick-up artists” is coming to Japan this month. He may find he is not very welcome. It’s one thing to teach dubious techniques to socially inadequate men on how to bed women; it’s another thing to grab Japanese women and force their face into your crotch.

In Japan, that’s not “aggressive dating” — that’s forcible indecency (kyōsei waisetsu), a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. I wonder if our visiting dating adviser is aware of this. He certainly wasn’t the last time he was in Japan.

Who is this charming fellow? He is, according to his Facebook page, “an executive coach for Real Social Dynamics, the international leader in dating advice.” According to a puff piece in The Daily Mail, “Pick-up artist Julien Blanc charges men $3,000 to learn his secret tricks.” He recently made a meaningless apology for his actions on CNN. Why doesn’t an apology mean anything? Because it’s not enough to exonerate you of criminal charges.

These secret tricks he brags about include grabbing women by the neck and choking them, psychological manipulation, lying and, in Japan, apparently sexually assaulting women while “cutely” saying “Pikachu, Pikachu” again and again to lighten the mood. I don’t think Nintendo would approve. The rest of the article is here in the Japan Times 

Among the possible charges you’ll see listed below is one that is not: violations of the Tokyo Public Nuisance Prevention Ordinances (迷惑防止条例).  It carries a penalty of less than months in prison or a penalty of 500,000 yen  (6月以下の懲役又は50万円以下の罰金に処する。常習の場合、1年以下の懲役又は100万円以下の罰金).  In the case of a “regular offender” and Blanc seems like a regular offender (professional offender?) if there ever was one, up to a year in jail or 1,000,000 yen fine. This is the law that the Tokyo police use to arrest gropers on trains, sometimes over zealously as recent cases show. But then again, Blanc has filmed his own damning evidence of himself committing the crimes.

The official police term for guys like Julien Blanc is chikan (痴漢) which translated into English means “molester, sexual pervert.” Julien Chikan Blanc. Try saying “Chikan, Chikan” instead of “Pikachu” next time you talk up the ladies—they’ll know to run away.

Julien Blanc, "dating expert", brag how easy it is to force Japanese women to put their mouths on your dick.  街で女の頭つかんで顔にチンコを当てまくった。

A reader of the blog kindly wrote to us and suggested a number of ways that Mr. Blanc’s past actions here (in Japan)  could be considered crimes. In an extreme case, he might also be responsible for the sexual harassment or assault done by his followers. I spoke with an ex-prosecutor who agreed that the points made were valid and for you edification and that of Mr. Blanc and his followers I’ve posted them below.  Crimes in bold would be the most probable charges. However, keep in mind that many cases of sexual assault require the victim to lodge a complaint  (shinkokuzai/親告罪) or they can’t be prosecuted.  That may also be the reason when Russian self-proclaimed rapist hasn’t been punished. 

From Yoshiaki-san (who has asked not to have his full name used for reasons you can probably surmise).

I already reported this matter to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.
It is them who decide which laws apply to this matter, but I think following laws will do the jobs to take him  (Julien Blanc) down.

第六十一条(教唆)
Article 61. (Inducement)
1 人を教唆して犯罪を実行させた者には、正犯の刑を科する。
(1) A person who induces another to commit a crime shall be dealt with in sentencing as a principal.
2 教唆者を教唆した者についても、前項と同様とする。
(2) The same shall apply to a person who induces another to induce.

第百六条(騒乱)
Article 106. (Disturbance)
多衆で集合して暴行又は脅迫をした者は、騒乱の罪とし、次の区別に従って処断する。
A person who assembles in a crowd and commits an act of assault or intimidation thereby commits the crime of disturbance and shall be sentenced according to the following distinctions:
一 首謀者は、一年以上十年以下の懲役又は禁錮に処する。
(i) A ringleader shall be punished by imprisonment with or without work for not less than 1 year but not more than 10 years;
二 他人を指揮し、又は他人に率先して勢いを助けた者は、六月以上七年以下の懲役又 は禁錮に処する。
(ii) A person who directs others or takes the lead in stirring up others shall be punished by imprisonment with or without work for not less than 6 months but not more than 7 years;
三 付和随行した者は、十万円以下の罰金に処する。
(iii) A person who merely follows others shall be punished by a fine of not more than 100,000 yen.

第百七十六条(強制わいせつ)
Article 176. (Forcible Indecency)
十三歳以上の男女に対し,暴行又は脅迫を用いてわいせつな行為をした者は,六月以上 十年以下の懲役に処する。十三歳未満の男女に対し,わいせつな行為をした者も,同様と する。
A person who, through assault or intimidation, forcibly commits an indecent act upon a male or female of not less than thirteen years of age shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not less than 6 months but not more than 10 years. The same shall apply to a person who commits an indecent act upon a male or female under thirteen years of age.

第二百八条(暴行)
Article 208. (Assault)
暴行を加えた者が人を傷害するに至らなかったときは,二年以下の懲役若しくは三十万 円以下の罰金又は拘留若しくは科料に処する。
When a person assaults another without injuring the other person, the person shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not more than 2 years, a fine of not more than 300,000 yen, misdemeanor imprisonment without work or a petty fine.

Mr. Blanc’s unwanted advances on the poor woman working at the convenience store, fall into another category of crime as well.

He is attacking a girl on duty. So this one can also apply to this matter. I think I will contact the convenience store’s main office to send a report of damage to the police. He and his group members are too stupid. All stores have 24-hours-365-days-recording security video cameras. Only Japanese word they can read was pikachu so they did not notice that.

第三十五章 信用及び業務に対する罪
Chapter XXXV. Crimes against Credit and Business

第二百三十四条(威力業務妨害)
Article 234. (Forcible Obstruction of Business)

威力を用いて人の業務を妨害した者も,前条の例による。

A person who obstructs the business of another by force shall be dealt with in the same manner as proscribed under the preceding Article.

 

 

The Most Hated Man In Japan Is Coming Back…He’s not welcome. He’s not sexy

first published on November 3rd, 2014, 23:16 

When you go to Tokyo….if you’re a white male, you can do what you want. Just grab her, pull her in. She’ll giggle. Just say PIKACHU or POKEMON or something to take the pressure off. I’m romping through the streets (of Tokyo) just grabbing girls and it’s like (motions) head on dick (pfft) head on dick, yelling ‘PIKACHU’ with a Pikachu shirt on….Every foreigner who is white does this. When you see that one foreigner in the crowd in Tokyo and your eyes will lock and you know that he knows and he knows that and it’s this guilty look like you both fucked a hooker or something.”

Julien Blanc, “Dating expert” , pick-up artist, lecturing on picking up women in Japan
Transcribed from his video ▶ White Male Fucks Asian Women In Tokyo (And The Beautiful Methods To It) – YouTube

Who is Julien Blanc? He is according to his Facebook page “an executive coach for Real Social Dynamics, the international leader in dating advice”. According to the highly unreliable news source, The Daily Mail, “Pick-up artist Julien Blanc charges men $3000 to learn his secret tricks”and they work! (Maybe). The reporter who wrote the article even tries some of the tricks out for himself! That’s the kind of quality journalism we expect from The Daily Mail. 

You can see Julien’s amazingly misogynist and offensive lectures on how to convince women to have sex with you (if you’re a white male with sociopathic tendencies) at two web sites:: www.pimpingmygame.com & www.rsdnation.com.

He is coming to Japan sometime this month–probably November 15th-17th. In anticipation of this, I wrote a summary of all we know for the Japan Times on November 6th—  We are hoping to ensure he has no happy return .  He is not going to be very welcome. In September 2014, a Youtube blogger named msdoom99, posted a Japanese subtitled video of his instructional film White Male Fucks Asian Women In Tokyo (And The Beautiful Methods To It) with some caustic comments.

The title of her video editorial is 白人が日本で大暴れ「日本ではHしほうだい」(字幕). Translated: White man on rampage in Japan “You can have all the sex you want”
Msdoom99 is studying shared culture in Asia and also studies comparative culture. For example, her video essay on Japanese rip-offs of American films & television is hilarious. If you saw Top Gun and the Japanese rip-off of it, Best Guy (ベストガイ), you’d appreciate her quirky talents and sense of humor. However, she doesn’t find much funny about Julien Blanc’s instructional lecture.
She writes, “It makes me sad. This white guy overflowing with confidence. It makes feel icky. Somehow it depresses me.”
The video ends with footage taken in Japan of “our hero” grabbing Japanese women at clubs, trying to be cute, and literally forcing their heads into his crotch.

The only thing more foul than this guy is a Russian researcher in Hokkaido who appears to have brutally raped a number of women, brags about it, and has avoided punishment by the Japanese police..

Msdoom99’s video has gotten over a 1000 comments most of them extremely negative. Julien, in his overconfident idiocy, seems to believe that because Japanese women nervously giggle and don’t say “No!” or punch him, that they’re okay with his manhandling of them.
The man is so revolting that he has an entire twitter feed dedicated to stopping him @jennli123 and a hashtag as well: #takedownjulienblanc

Jennifer Li’s explanation of why she felt compelled to go after Mr. “crusty mayonnaise” is brilliant.

@Jennli123 has launched a campaign to track down and stop Julien Blanc (@RSDJulien) from spreading his toxic message and sexually harassing women.

Since we first posted this article on November 3rd, 23:16 Japan time, there have been some new developments.  In Melbourne, his planned seminar at Hotel Como Melbourne was cancelled due to public pressure and an on-line campaign. (We called the hotel too and and sent them a copy of this article, but I think the writing was already on the wall.) The backlash down under is immense—the man invokes serious chunder.

There is no end to what I could write about his loathsome behavior but watch the video a few times and I’m sure you can decide for yourself, gentle reader.

I will say that what he does in the video would most likely be considered a crime in Japan, most likely 強制わいせつ (kyoseiwaisetsu/sexual assault) or 準強制わいせつ (Forcible Indecency,  Quasi Forcible Indecency). For his edification and that of anyone else who might want to emulate him, this is what the law says:  A person who through assault or intimidation forcibly commits an indecent act upon male or female shall be sentenced to hard labor for not less than six months but not more than ten years.

Unfortunately, “forcible indecency” (強制わいせつ罪)requires the victim to file a criminal complaint (親告罪). No complaint, no crime. Hopefully, on this trip to Japan, which he announced by posting the video that shows him committing crimes, will get him placed in a very special love hotel–one with armed guards and no women.

I kind of hope he looks me up. I know the perfect Japanese woman for him—she’s a dominatrix with a great roundhouse kick. She would love to “play” with him. And he’d learn that being a player can earn you a special reward. He might even apologize for his past actions, if his jaw is still intact. At the very least, he might learn to be a little more polite to Japanese women—or any woman for that matter. One can hope.

UPDATE: On Monday, November 10th, a petition signed by over 37,000 people opposing his entry into Japan was submitted to the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau, claiming that he is a criminal and shouldn’t be allowed into the country. Blanc was recently kicked out of Australia after the immigration minister canceled his visa.
