For an adult the answer would be technically no but realistically far more complicated , because the definition of 'abuse' means that it is undesirable; but for a child any action designed to encourage sexual behavior by an adult is generally considered abuse; on the grounds that just because the child is too young to understand or articulate her feelings doesn't mean the action won't ultimately be harmful. The distinction of abuse having to be unwanted is still sometimes relevant for a child though, and thus worth at least addressing briefly. For instance if an 8 year old was involved in some form of so called 'sexual' play with another child of nearly the same age, and without any age-inappropriate level of knowledge about sex, rather or not the play was abusive would largely depend on rather or not the child in question found it undesirable or not. Playing 'doctor' is normal and is usually not abusive for children of the same age, but if one child does not want to play doctor then it can become abusive. Some may view this play as sexual, though in reality it's more about curiosity and exploration then actual sexuality, but it can only be defined as abuse relative to the child's perception. Just because an adult doesn't approve of the play does not make the play inherently abusive or harmful to the child. Still, I presume your question is focusing on abuse from an adult not another child.

Compared to Western culture which normally uses handshakes or hugging, the Japanese bow is a reflection of Japanese non-confrontational attitude.

Okay, I admit that I thought the Flat Earth Society was largely a group of sarcasm loving people with a few gullible conspiracy theorists thrown in. If you read the first part of this article with the idea that they are being sarcastic, it works. It wasn't until I got to the second part when I realized that it is made up of a bunch of ultra-religious gullible conspiracy theorists.
