I think you can appreciate the comic "my lesbian experience with loneliness" and also address problematic aspects. While most of the book is not about her buying woman, the sex industry is still detrimental to woman and money is coercive, which Nagata participated in. Japan never really abolished the ability to pay to rape woman, so prostitution is "normal". Id Say japan in general is pretty low in gender equality when compared to other first world countries [and that says a lot in light of the TRA problem] So Im not surprised Nagata didn't see anything wrong with "buying" woman however.

The struggle for Japanese lesbians to find a space for themselves and talk about their experience is important, but ignoring the global detrimental effect of prostitution on woman is also important.
