A Misogynist Conversation

      This is most puzzling backhanded compliment that I have ever received:
(from a middle-aged, professional Japanese male acquaintance)

     "The reason that Western women are unsuccessful at dating Japanese men is because most Western women, except for you, have a strong personality."

     What do you mean I don't have a strong personality!?

     The same man made some other offensive comments, including his opinion that Japanese women who date foreign guys are "not the most desirable of Japanese women. If they didn't have something wrong with them, they could have a Japanese husband."

     I was stunned.
