Abuser makes any excuse to justify the abuse. Poor girl must have been abused at home before this. The father would say "out of love" but that so-called love is twisted.

I think the license should be needed to be a parent. Too many people don't have qualification to be a parent.

Hopefully this trend will come to Japan as well since there still are "we won't treat or pay you well but at least you should be glad you are hired" mentality here. We've had enough.

harassment is part of Japanese culture, nothing will change. Japanese judge does not acknowledge harassment until death is involved.

I 100% agree with this.

I am disappointed by Toyota for "closely monitoring" the situation after it's been found that their ambassador Teruyuki Kagawa sexually assaulted Ginza hostess in very much awful way a few years ago. I was looking for the news to be on japantoday. Still waiting.

Animal testing should be done on sex offenders, not on animals, since they clearly don't care about consensus

My inner Rihanna singing like "don't tell me you're sorry cause you're not~ I know you're only sorry you got caught~"

They decided not to investigate further about this matter yesterday. so I voted "no". LDP is not going to change, because they don't care about citizens. They only care about big votes (=UC).

What's worse is that it is so easy to imagine that the workers with minimum wages are more prone to be under high stress level of emotional labor usually by serving customers. And JP customers can be pain in the butt especially old men. They don't care if you are a part time worker, they don't care if you are making just $7, they would get furious if you can't provide them with world-class service.

this is why people do not confront strangers when they see something bad in public. the victim get hospitalized and the attacker gets only a few years of prison and that's it. again very 表面的な対応

Posted in: 27-year-old woman indicted over murder of 3 daughters See in context

Perhaps the husband was the cause of her emotional issues. 

@Lindsay

That's exactly what came to my mind at first. Many women are enslaved as a wife or a mother and unable to seek for help even if they are overwhelmed with raising kid, doing chores, going to work and taking care of almost everything around by herself while a husband weaponize his incompetence and deliberately ignore the problem/potential problem. Although what she did was totally not unforgivable, we need to look into what made her that way and try to save people who are suffering like her to prevent similar incident.

Posted in: App developed to automatically delete children's nude selfies See in context

I am not opposed to the idea but I wonder why it's always the victim side that has to take measure in this country and they don't really do anything to try to regulate the sexual predators and pedophilias in more strict way. We should at least be able to share the information of those who with sexual criminal record.

Posted in: Woman arrested for abandoning body of newborn baby girl in Osaka parking lot See in context

It is actually illegal to have abortion in Japan. Maternal Helath Act make it okay to have abortion if you go to certain licensed doctor. You will be asked to have consent(signature) from the father of the baby, but some men ghosts women after the pregnancy. As you can read from below link, while a woman look for a doctor who will agree to terminate their pregnancy without the father's consent, the term limit exceeds and then she cannot have abortion anymore. (the Ministry stated that the consent from the father will no longer be needed in case of unusual case such as DVs though, since last year.)

The story of abandoned baby

-She went to several hospitals, but each time she was asked to get consent from father and couldn't get surgery. As a result, the term limit of Maternal Health Act has passed and abortion was no longer available.

Japan's abortion rule

The woman is one of many sexual assault survivors denied abortions across Japan by hospitals that require consent from their attackers.

-the world needs to see how the Japanese system is a joke and unhuman!

Completely agreed. I hate how Japan's system and philosophy works in favor of corporation or government in so many ways. especially at work. Harassment is so normalized here they don't even realize they are violating human rights. This country is still infested with the old BS idea that people exists to serve for people at the top. Japan is patriarchal society and a company is like pseudo-family because of lifetime employment system, they think they can do anything to you and it's very narcissistic. I don't know why he stayed in Japan for decades but if I were him I'd be already long out of this country and get much better job with better work environment in other country.

Posted in: Kishida plans reward points system to ease electricity bills See in context

It’s funny how Japanese government and big corporation are all about eco and SDGs to show off to other countries when one sixth of people are suffering from poverty. It disgusts me that the government waste our tax on stupidity like this while young women who suffers from mental illness and poverty caused by black company goes to city office to ask for help just to be told that she should work in sex industry. This country is broken.

The guy was arrested in 2016 and in 2017 for SA'ing other woman and assaulting a cop.

Justice system is broken if these kind of potential murderer is on the loose walking around.

-"double" the budget necessary for measures to deal with the problems

Honestly I don't trust that the necessary budget will be used for the children. It will be probably be ripped off by companies/agencies that have close relationship with government like hyenas.

Posted in: Survey suggests about half of Japanese companies has an 'old guy who does nothing' See in context

A lot of issues are intertwined but these ojisan exist basically because Japanese employment system is broken and it's extremely hard to fire employee no matter how incompetent or lazy they are. Old fashioned company used to take lifetime employment (seishain) and seniority based wage, so the more you stay in one company, the more your wage increases no matter how little you contribute to the company.

In my company case, some ojisans who are not in manager class do nothing/bare minimum job just to get by, because company politics allows only people who are convenient for bosses to become manager class. They take points-off system that if you challenge and fail, the responsibility is yours. but if you succeed, the bosses will take credit for it. Besides, in Japan it’s hard for workers to change jobs/company after they turn 35-40 unless you are a manager class because young workers are much preferred than workers who are over 35-40 so sometimes there is no other way for them than to stay in the company. (obviously this doesn’t apply to some industry or occupation though)
