“Handsome Tax” proposed by Takuruo Morinaga, an analyst, and published on Asahi Newspaper Digital is talked at foreign sites etc.
Mr. Morinaga said “Imposing “Handsome Tax” to good looking men and collecting the unfairness pushes ugly men could find their love, and finally marriage rate would be increased.” He proposed this “Handsome Tax” as a measure to low marriage rate relating to declining birth rate.
Specifically, he proposed
1. Double income tax to handsome men. The other’s income tax is 10 -20% decreased.
2. The judgement of handsome or not is by female councilors chosen at random.
Only one analyst proposed this idea, and this should never be realized. However, foreigners seemed to have some opinions to this strange idea.
Well, it had better be born super handsome than paying much tax… +3
Oh, I would never be imposed at all… even 1 dollar… Shit!
Japan always bethinks this kind of stupid things.
Everything in Japan is strange, but that’s cool, too…
It’s not a big deal, but why limited to male?
I should go to Japan. My tax would be decreased!
If this law took effect, I would go bankrupt!! +28
I’m so confused about this information.
Why always Japan makes me confused?
I support this law as one of ugly men! +3
Handsome men didn’t mean to be born like this.
I lived in Japan, and I knew some people say something stupid like this.
And foreigners believe it’s really happened.
Well, some Japanese say strange things…..
Japan needs more population?
They should decrease the tax each time the child is born! +14
If I was a handsome man, I would change my face by punching to my face. +24
Japan. It’s nonsense… You should not…
All Japanese men should start walking with fanny face. w
Trinidad and Tobago
So sad I don’t have to worry about extra tax……..
US should create obesity tax! +116
Well, anyway, rich female go to handsome man. The female not rich go to the man not handsome…. hum….
The problem is the value of beauty varies. There is a man I think he is very attractive, but my friends say he is “normal”.
Low birth rate is a good thing. Why Japan doesn’t notice that? +35
I thought my tax is very high recently… Oh, it’s because they impose to my beauty…..
If handsome Japanese move to Canada, it might be okay! :)
Well, but if they do this, there is not handsome genes, and Japan would not have any handsome men…?
It’s horrible if they have to pay Handsome Tax. But if not… I should be mad!! x +72
I guess Japan has too much population.
This is very racial and stupid.
I evaluated Japan very highly, but….
This is the rare moment. “Nice to be ugly”!
Even if that man is handsome, he might be poor and timid.. It’s unfair.
I was surprised this kind of proposal becomes a news. w
“You are lucky you don’t have to pay lots of tax”.
When I was told like this, then this Handsome Tax must be the most annoying tax among all… +56
