    I actually am surprised about the amount of research and attention that goes into this “gender language” thing. If someone says something to me i take it at face value unless i know the person it came from.

    It’s very interesting how in this culture they even have a difference in the way they speak when it comes to gender. The Japanese culture is strict on females as it is but I didn’t think that it would go as far as the way they speak.
