Motherfucker, hikikomori literally translates to "pulling inward, being confined". Don't go musing words (literally and hikikomori), to push your fucking agenda (even if it's an agenda I happen to agree with).

Aren't they themselves Hikikomori by means of the literal translation?

No. They go outside, they talk to one another, they march and harp and cause scenes in public. Hthikikomori are social recluses that are afraid of society, while SJWs are plenty social they just hate society (and pretty much everything in general).

Another interesting piece of trivia: the two historical capitals of Japan were Kyoto and Tokyo. There is a character for To and a character for Kyo, so when they moved the capital, they literally just reversed the spelling of the name of the place.

This is not even remotely true, but it sounds like a fun fact, so we're just going to move on.

Not true: Kyoto 京都 means "capital city" and copied a Chinese phrase. Tokyo 東京 means "eastern capital". The two names share one kanji, but two phonemes. Also, the "to" of Tokyo is a long mora; the "to" of Kyoto is short.

You might like the anime NHK Ni Yokozo, it presents the whole hikikomori syndrome from a hikikomori's point of view and does it quite nicely too.

Essentially. Hikikomori also denotes someone who doesn't contribute to society, a NEET per se.

This whole "safe spaces" is part of just one big conspiracy to pussify the Western world to pave the way for corporatocracy.

What if you contributed to society without getting paid anything? I wrote a book people downloaded thousands of times, but no payments from it, because it was online.

If you leave your house on a regular basis and participate in social interaction, you're not a hikikomori. It's considered a social disorder, sometimes known as acute social withdrawal which may clear up to you what a hikikomori is. It's actually a really worrisome condition in Japan with an estimated 1.2 million affected and it affecting both sexes equally.

That said, mind if I ask what book you wrote? You can PM me, I promise I won't doxx.
