In Japan, It's 'Herbivore Boys' Vs. 'Carnivore Girls,' Desserts vs. Raw Meat Sushi

Now comes the flip-side. Last week, CNN had a video short featuring "carnivore girls," who are career-driven and have seemed to pick up the slack where the men left off--proof that for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction.
Here's the food angle: The story focused on a particularly enterprising restaurateur who took the term "carnivore" literally and opened a growing chain of raw-meat sushi bars now popular with these girls. If it just seems a self-fulfilling prophecy, it's also kind of poetic.
