I wonder how much of this is just the usual August news cycle craziness.

Not okay, bro. When Lorde sang "You can call me Queen Bee" it was interpreted as a slap at Beyonce, and hence racist.
Damn, I never made that connection.

Good for Lorde.

I don't know if she actually intended it that way. But in 2013 there was an entire cottage industry of people digging and searching for racism in every line of those lyrics.

So much this. To my knowledge he still hasn't retracted or corrected his story that Michael Brown gave Wilson an orbital blowout fracture, and he was one of the main culprits in the spreading of the misidentification of the Vegas shooter as some liberal soros guy whose family suddenly started getting death threats.

Fuck Gateway Pundit sideways with a rusty chainsaw.

Well, looks like Gateway Pundit was right this time. I mean, I don’t have a real source, but Jezebel is repeating and expanding on the allegations:

Japanese women are finding more freedom and happiness by forgoing marriage
The percentage of women who work in Japan is higher than ever, yet cultural norms have not caught up: Japanese wives and mothers are still typically expected to bear the brunt of the housework, child care and help for their aging relatives, a factor that stymies many of their careers.

Fed up with the double standard, Japanese women are increasingly opting out of marriage altogether, focusing on their work and newfound freedoms, but also alarming politicians preoccupied with trying to reverse Japan’s declining population.
Last year, the number of couples getting married hit the lowest level since the end of World War II, according to government estimates. It was the sixth straight year of decline in the nation’s marriage rate, which is falling at a much faster clip than the drop in Japan’s population over all.

Not surprisingly, the number of births in Japan — a country where few people have children out of wedlock — is also tumbling. Last year, the number of babies born in the country fell to the lowest level since at least 1899, when record-keeping began.
The shift is tied to the changing Japanese work force. Close to 70 percent of women ages 15 to 64 now have jobs — a record. But their careers are often held back by a relentless tide of domestic burdens, like filling out the meticulous daily logs required by their children’s day-care centers, preparing the intricate meals often expected of Japanese women, supervising and signing off on homework from school and afterschool tutoring sessions, or hanging rounds of laundry — because few households have electric dryers.

While some men say they want to pitch in more and the government has urged businesses to reform the crushing work culture, employees are still expected to devote most of their waking hours to the company, making it difficult for many husbands to participate much on the home front.
Some men are reacting to Japan’s economic realities by shying away from marriage as well. Ever since Japan’s speculative stock and property bubble burst in the early 1990s, wages have flatlined. The long-held social compact between employers and workers — in which few people were ever laid off and employees were guaranteed lifelong employment — has diminished. About one-fifth of men are now consigned to irregular contract jobs that offer little stability or potential for advancement.

With the social expectation that men should be the primary breadwinners, many men worry they will struggle to support a household financially. Just over a third of men ages 35 to 39 have never been married, up from less than a quarter 20 years ago.
The whole thing is worth reading if only to see how women express their liberation in extremely Japanese ways. I also get a grim Rorschach laugh out of any article touching on fertility panic.

Little does she know that small acts of courtesy are in fact part of a standard white male playbook intended to goad women into making asses of themselves on social media.

In another context, she'd be slapped down for assuming that someone is male-identifying or White-identifying simply because she perceives them that way.

To be fair to her, "No thanks, I've got it" is a polite way to decline assistance. The shittiness is what she did on Twitter afterward. But based on her account it seems like she was fine during the actual event.

If the dude had been black, I know people who would argue that being less than 110% polite with him is a microaggression, a way in which white women take up space and make the world less safe for people of color.

An act of resistance, to politeness.
