Women Only Train Car
Well, I don’t belong here…
During rush-hour, train can be so packed. Some people would take the advantage of this situation to grope. This train car is only one effort to minimize it — part of the anti-groping campaign.
By the way, did you notice that I say “some people” instead of “some men”? Well, because (surprisingly) women also grope (men) — the Japanese terms is “Chikan” for men and “Chijo” for women. However, I don’t see “men only” train car here… and, what about women who grope other women?
Not all people agree with this “Women-only” train car. Quoting from this article:
“This system is discriminating against men,” he said. “We pay the same fare and yet are labeled as evil persons. Not all men are gropers. This is insulting.”
I think he has a solid point.
Well, it’s pass 09:30 AM; the train car is open for everybody now
