《中英對照讀新聞》Japanese video says women who do their makeup while on commute are ’ugly’ 日本影片稱通勤時化妝的女人「很醜」

◎孫宇青

Are you one of the countless women that use your commute to apply make-up? Tokyo Corp has released a video, imploring female commuters not to do so, branding it as ’ugly’.

妳是眾多會在通勤時化妝的女性之一嗎?東京急行電鐵株式會社發佈一段影片,形容這種行為很「醜陋」,懇求女性通勤者別這麼做。

The short clip is part of a wider campaign that urges train-users to have more consideration for other passengers. However, it has sparked a rather angry debate. Filmed on a subway train, the video features a woman confronting two fellow commuters who are doing their make-up.

這段短片是宣導活動的一部分,旨在督促搭乘電車的民眾多為其他乘客著想。然而,卻引發一場火藥味十足的爭辯。該短片的場景位於一節電車車廂,片中一名女士面對兩名正在化妝的通勤女性。

"Women in the city are all pretty", she says to the camera. "But they can be ugly sometimes". She then asks the women: "Why can’t you do that before leaving home?" "Your eyebrows restored and eyelashes multiplied, your transformation has been witnessed."

這名女士向著鏡頭說:「這座城市的女人都很美麗,但有時也有醜陋的一面。」她向兩名女子問道:「為什麼妳們不在出門前就化好妝?」「妳的眉毛修好了,妳的睫毛接好了,妳的變身過程都被看在眼裡。」

While previous videos promoted courtesy by not cutting into queues or removing your backpack, the attempt to discourage women from applying makeup has caused quite a stir.

之前的影片大多宣導不要插隊或將背包拿在手上等禮節,這次勸阻女性別在通勤時化妝卻意外引起轟動。

Some women are now asking for Japanese men’s discourteous train habits to come under fire, pointing out that nose picking, watching porn and groping are much greater irritants than touching up your lippie.

部分女性現在也要求譴責日本男性的失禮行為,她們指出,挖鼻孔、看色情影片、做出猥褻舉動等,都比塗口紅更加惱人。
