Posted in: Japan's sex workers head overseas in search of lucrative job opportunities See in context

As a Japanese woman I feel terrified for non-sex worker fellow Japanese women if this goes long and the world starts associating "Japanese women" as sex workers when they see us abroad. We are already sexualized and fetishized enough.. I already heard some stories about foreign immigration being skeptical when a Japanese woman trying to enter the country because they get suspicious if the woman is going to illegally "work" in the country.

All they do is take and take and take, until people have nothing left to give.

Posted in: Yamanashi uses toilet paper messages to help suicidal youth See in context

Maybe they could try hiring professional counselor as suicide prevention call receiver instead of using money on toilet paper. When it comes to those phone counseling services, all I hear from people who tried to call there was "the line was too busy it didn't go through", "the counselor sounded so annoyed and lazy", "the counselor told me to just suck it up" probably because it's covered by volunteers who never really had professional training and they are usually old people who doesn't have job and trying to kill time. Japan should seriously consider where to put money.

I just saw a news yesterday, about a single mom who cannot afford to flush the toilet every time so she keeps it once in 3 times because of recent price rise and she is desperate. What a unfair world we live in.

Posted in: Should Japan have its own nuclear weapons as a deterrent against security threats? See in context

No, not because there are threats from other countries, No because the government clearly sees citizens as if we are SIM characters / money supply in their world and they are not trustworthy. Even if we owned nuclear weapon, I doubt the government is able to use it properly to protect this country and people. After all they are just Moonie's puppets. It's going to make more problems without solving any.

I used to think Japan is a country of integrity when I was little. Now that I'm grown up I am sad to see how low class my own country is, leaving those scammy companies in the wild.

It's not a labor shortage, it's a slavery shortage. The govt is so oblivious to the Pawahara, low wage, strict rules and long hours of work we have to go through and also the mental illness that comes with it. So many youth are planning to flee from Japan.

Posted in: Man arrested for sexually molesting 13-year-old girl returning home from school See in context

I don't understand why some people start being so defensive and comparing the amount of crime to other country's when it come to Japan's, especially sexual assault/crime. Comparing it to the worse country doesn't help us at all. It doesn't change the fact that us women has been facing the sexual assault, micro aggression, sexual harassment day to day basis and has been silenced since we were young in this very country. The reason why we don't have "numbers" is because we were taught that it is what it is and if we raise our voice then instantly we're "the problem". These days our society has been changing (even though slowly) and we started raising our voice and seeking help when we encounter sexual assault. Up until now when we seek help, even police would react "it's just one touch, what are you making all the fuss about" when we'd get groped. This messed up society has created the monsters like the one in this article. I don't see how it is safer or better than other countries.

I am so glad the guy is arrested. I hope one day there will be a law that a parent loses custody of a child if they abused the kid even once. They don't deserve to have a child.

Posted in: Man arrested for assisting junior high school girl to commit suicide See in context

More and more people in younger generation are sick and tired of this world. The number one cause of death within the range of 15-34yo in Japan is suicide. I've been there (being suicidal), a lot of my friends as well, and I can tell that there's something about this country that makes people want to unalive themselves.,%E4%BA%BA%EF%BC%88%E5%B9%B3%E6%88%90%EF%BC%93%EF%BC%90%E5%B9%B4%EF%BC%89%E3%80%82

A steady diet of rapey manga/hentai since a young age, a dysfunctional family, porn addiction, lack of mental health help for this sort of thing in Japan....

The audacity of the company is beyond comprehension, but unfortunately this kind of attitude from companies is not uncommon especially when it comes to technical internship program. I hope she wins the case. such a brave woman for standing up for herself!!

Posted in: Japanese mom’s don’t-touch-my-baby-stroller sign stirs up debate See in context

Understandable. I don't have a kid but from what I've heard and seen, a lot of moms are feeling uncomfortable strangers coming up to them and touch their baby without asking especially some people seem to feel entitled to do so and gets mad at moms if they refused.

Posted in: Woman arrested over death of 80-year-old mother See in context

Although what she did was not acceptable, it is not hard to assume she had grudge and resentment towards her parent. After all, psychological/emotional/physical abuse from people with power (caregiver) to weaker people (children) are so normalized in this culture. Children who survived abuse gets revenge when they grow up, that's what I see from this kind of news.

Posted in: Kishida asks firms to match pay hikes to inflation See in context

"Asking" doesn't get us anywhere. Companies won't listen. We all know how corporates just want economic slaves they can pay the least. It's same as toxic relationships. They give you bare minimum but you have to make the most effort.

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.

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

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.

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).
