In Japan, Yin Yang Blend is Yinn' and Yangin'!  The trend over there is for women to be strong,robust and bursting with energy while the men are striving to be skinny, weak and protected by their women…even going as far as wearing women's clothing!  Young males between the ages of 18 and 30 make up the slimmest segment of the population and the ideal fashion weight as decreed by the apparel industry is 57 kilograms, or about 125 pounds, for a height of 175 centimeters, or 5 feet 8 inches.  "Being really skinny is essential, not just for fashion and work purposes but also because girls seem to go for thin guys," says Twenty-five-year-old Junichi Shirakawa.

The trend now is for men to look like they want to be fed and/or devoured by women. I can't imagine this movement coming to fruition here in the States where men are macho and women are feminine…
