    Will the Japanese go extinct?

    I just saw a report that 1 in 3 Japanese men are not interested in girls or sex, that number has doubled from the number only 2 years ago. One interview showed a 20 year old guy saying that meeting a girl and getting to like her would take up too much of his weekend and he didnt want to waste his time off. I guess it is natural selection being demonstrated pretty well don't you think? Clearly DNA that is not interested in sex is not going to survive.

    It is unlikely. The Japanese are the most ethnocentric, xenophobic people. While other peoples are intermarrying, there remains a strong social pressure to marry Japanese. Their, language, culture, and business systems are very strong and unique. They will be around for a long time to come.

    PS- It is a big mistake to mock Jesus or God or the Holy Spirit. That is playing with lightning.

    I agree they will be here for a long time but culture, business and language are irrelevant to reproduction. As for mocking jesus, I have no idea what you are referring to. In any case, I dont believe a god exists so mocking such a being is meaningless to me.

    I question the accuracy of that report. Sociologists are well aware of the fact that responses to questionnaires are strongly influenced by the ways in which the questions are framed. My educated guess is that the research for this report was done in a very sloppy fashion.

    There's a secondary issue here. Japanese birthrates are well below replacement levels, as is the case in some Western European countries. And the inversion of the age pyramid is putting a big strain on their social security systems.

    Aside from Denmark, Western European countries are using immigration as a financial shock-absorber. However there's a trade-off. Immigration is also contributing to a Clash of Civilizations within some European countries.

    On the other hand, the Japanese have made a very conscious decision that immigration is not going to be the solution to their social security funding problems. Considering their current economic situation, that's very reasonable.

    Extinction? Hardly. My wild guess is that the Japanese birthrate will pick up a bit when the population density has thinned out to a more comfortable level, when there's room for most Japanese people to live in less-cramped apartments, when there's less air pollution, and when long-term food security is less of a worry.

    They will not go extinct. The ones who are still interested are doing double time.

    Well if that report is accurate, then 1 in 3 Japanese men are probably going to become successful billionaires in their own lifetime. It's amazing what people might accomplish if they aren't interested in sex.

    It is the way they are brought up and made to think. All they focus on is work and money, achieving something for themselves, or so they think. I don't think they will become extinct. They just need to focus on their lives at home more so than their jobs. The same issue is happening in Italy. Men are being mama's boys and living at their parents homes until they are in their 30s and 40s. The women are caught in the "strong female" stage, and believe they should not be slaves to men. So there are almost no babies being born. Only 2 in one town were born in a year.
    So it could be worse.

    I certainly hope not. The Japanese people are wonderful....so culturally rich.
