The Tsundere Virus….

The problem I have with the tsundere archetype is not just the fact that it reflects a deep-seated misogyny within Japanese culture. It’s not bad enough that the irrational, violent, capricious, self-absorbed lunatic is a reflection of the default belief that women cannot listen to a reason that their female brains aren’t built to comprehened without the chauvinistic fantasy of woman-as-screeching-loon spreading to these shores like Dutch Elm disease or the H1N1 virus. The contamination has even spread to and is ruining one of my favorite shows; I liked Velma Dinkley a lot better before she started channelling dead, crazy Japanese women.
