 n.— «The young Office Ladies found the city’s gay men so cute, they latched on to their club scene. But now the ‘sticky rice girls’ have come unstuck.…A new phenomenon emerged: the okoge. The closest English translation is fag hag, but this doesn’t do justice to the expression. Okoge is a culinary term, referring to those irritating grains of rice that stubbornly glue themselves to the bottom of the pot.» —“Sayonara to Tokyo’s camp followers” by Richard Lloyd Parry Independent (Londong, England) May 30, 1995.
