Train groper mistaken identity concern for vast majority of Japanese

Do you think men-only carriages are needed? graph of japanese statisticsIn the past I have looked at women-only carriages, but this time I present a survey from iShare looking at train groping and men-only carriages.

Demographics

Between the 10th and 15th of July 2009 543 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 57.5% of the sample were male, 33.3% were in their twenties, 31.5% in their thirties, and 35.2% in their forties.

I’m not in favour of men-only carriages (although I strongly support women-only) as I’m not really sure they’d change anything; I’d love to know why people wanted them, as surely it cannot just be due to the fear of being misidentified as a groper.

For a sillier look at train segregation, here’s a ranking survey I translated previously.
