quote of the day

There is still bias against and no understanding of LGBT people. Young people tend to struggle and have difficulty living. Moves to protect the rights of such people have a long way to go. I want local governments to spread proper information about sexual diversity more actively.

This is the problem. People think it's only about sex. Are *your relationships only about sex? Nightmare.

LGBT rights should be fundamental in every modern society and I hope Japan takes a pioneering role in accepting them.

Having been told that homosexuality in any form is "bent," "queer," "abnormal," "unnatural," etc., and actually illegal in many countries until fairly recently, you can't expect people to suddenly accept it with open arms.
