https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018...n-left-unsatisfied-grass-eating-sexless-nerds Yes, Hong Kong is suffering from an army of loners - estimated at 20,000 to 40,000 strong - usually in their 20's and 30's, who are choosing video games, anime and internet porn over wives, sex and the inevitable children that follow. These sexless men are known as "otaku," - a Japanese term for socially awkward gents who have isolated themselves from their families and romantic prospects alike. "[T]hese “geeks” tend to be diehard anime and manga fans who have little interest in dating," writes Luisa Tam in the South China Morning Post. Studies in Japan estimate that this class of men, normally in their 20s and 30s, account for around 60 per cent to 70 per cent of the male population. Obviously, their reluctance to procreate is a major cause for concern. Japan has had one of lowest birth rates in the world for nearly a decade now. -SCMP Wai-ching notes that similar to Japan, China's society is aging. “These ‘grass-eating men’ are not capable of taking care of their ageing parents and neither are they capable of taking care of themselves when they become old, they are childless so they will have no family support,” he says. ------------------------- I guess this is politics related since changing demographics can really affect an economy etc. This issue isn't just limited to Japan it appears. I know we have younger people here in the US like that now more than we had in the past but it sounds like in some of these Asian countries younger men aren't even looking to hook up or anything.
