Group Description

Salon Girl

"A kari wears a pleated navy miniskirt and a white sailor middy, standard issue of junior high schools all across Japan. But the skirt is minuscule, and her middy hangs down below its hem. Akari's brown, gently bowed legs are bare on this icy January night save for the "rusu-sokusu" (loose socks) gathered in folds at her skinny ankles. She wobbles a bit on her eight-inch platform boots. Completing the look (modeled on the anime character Sailor Moon, from the eponymous series about a clumsy, lazy and tear-prone 14-year-old who transforms herself, through magic, jewelry and makeup, into a cute, sailor-suited, love-and-justice-defending crime-fighter) is her hair, which is dyed a brassy gold to offset the burnished walnut tan of her round young face. Dolled up in her tiny uniform (purchased secondhand for about $100 from a friend who outgrew the skirt long ago), a sucker lolling from her pink mouth, Akari is one of Japan's many "kogaru," "ko" from the Chinese character for "little," and "garu" coming from the English word "gal.""

"Congratulations Salon. You've trotted out the one trick pony of Camille Paglia to stir up your readership again. That one trick, by the way, is taking a self described liberal and giving her space to slam all those who she self proclaims to be aligned with, while, on the other hand, praising her ideological opposites. Exactly what Fox News and the GOP did with Zell Miller during the last election. When will you ever wise up?"
