Today Professor Oyama’s class invited Doshisha students to have a discussion with them.
The topics this time were “Masculine Words, Feminine Words” and “Gender Roles.” Are the words that we see in the textbook the same as the words Doshisha students actually use?
The students were surprised to hear that the Doshisha students referred to themselves with “uchi.”
“Uchi wasn’t written in our textbook!!”
After that, the students asked many questions like “when did you start using it,” “can you use it with anyone,” and “who’s allowed to use it?”
It was a small group, but a very fun discussion! Thank you to all the students who participated.
