You know every once in a while you come across a story which makes you roll your eyes and simply smile at the luxuries of white people’s lives which allows them to take certain actions in their lives.
When your life is so complicated and you have to deal with a collapsed healthcare system, corruption on every block and unemployment, perhaps you won’t have time to do some of the things privileged white people do.
A Japanese man has been making waves after news emerged that he has been dating a cockroach for a year.
25-year-old Yuma Shinohara acquired an African farm reared cockroach who he named Lisa and started dating. According to him ‘Lisa’ was his first love and he fantasized about having s*x with her — either by becoming a cockroach himself or Lisa becoming a human woman.
He said Lisa was the hottest woman he ever met and their relationship was serious and exclusive.
However, after a year his ‘girlfriend’ died and Yuma cooked and ate her. He said he did it in ‘reverence’.
“The day she passed away was difficult but I knew it had to come since she was a cockroach with a short life span.
“So now Lisa lives in my heart and continues living as part of my body.” he said.
Yuma is an entomophagist – a person who preaches and practices eating insects as an alternative to meat due to environmental reasons. He is known in Japan for organizing bug-eating contests.
