Living in Japan must be horrendous for ladies, from day one as a school girl they are over sexualised in magazines, manga, etc then they are subject to chican on trains, then as they get older they are subject to more harassment in the work place, and when you think that being groped, or assaulted that you would think that it couldn't get any worse, oh yes it can it goes on in a nursing home, it's really time the Japanese government pushed through the bill for sex offenders register, will it stop sexual assaults? Probably not, but it should cut them down, and these perpetrators get some sort of recompense for there actions.

Poor woman exposed such a disgusting crime at her age. And i lost count of the news related to Saitama today. What’s wrong with this place, better to avoid going there at any cost.

Revolting. And this stuff goes on a lot more than most people even want or dare to admit.

'Sexually aroused', eh? I could list a few unprintable things this creep can do to satisfy his sick desires.
