It's incredible to have the Sky News talking heads right here in our humble comments section.

@WilliamBjornson @alex

By the same token, why shouldn't such a fundamental conceit of human existence be explored within film? Not to mention, it's not like Japan doesn't have a storied history with sexuality in film, even if modern Japanese cinema is arguably a more staid and conservative arena.

And to speak as if 'western' productions are wholly dominated by sex and violence speaks less about the creative output of whatever 'the West' is, and more about the person making such a claim. As if there isn't an abundance of family-friendly drama to view.

But I guess those pearls won't clutch themselves.

Surprised they haven't wheeled out some sort of anthropomorphic mascot for this, like a disheveled tanuki with a necktie worn Rambo-style around his head and an obnoxious attitude.

Top post, Nepalibabu. The sort of hideous indifference undergirding an endless spew of posts around here is a shocking indictment of so many people. And they'll claim ad nauseam that it's the sheeple who need to wake up/stop fearing (insert cretinous libertarian bugbear)/conspiracy yadda yadda yadda.

The vaccines provide a little help which wanes very quickly, helpful to the vulnerable yet seemingly pointless and maybe damaging to kids according to recent research in Singapore

Absolute rot, perpetuated by people like John Campbell who misread studies.

Plus masks put the mouth biome out of whack which then begins to affect digestion and causes throat infections.

Hope you kept the receipt for this take. It's faulty.

The Japanese government should be applauded for not promoting hedonism and standing for the pro-societal good of sex in its proper abode, marriage.

Ah, yes. Because members of the Japanese ruling class are truly altruistic, and during their hostess parties and steak dinners on the back of the long-suffering tax payer, they're discussing how to ensure a fair go for us proles.

Hedonism. The gall of mentioning such a concept in relation to the LDP and thinking you've a leg to stand on.

A fairly sound argument in my opinion.

What a ghoulish perspective, if you truly entertain it.

The uptight, buttoned-down sliding scale of Japanese morality. Sex work is as legitimate as any other career, and the fewer weird, antiquated hang-ups a society has, the safer it is for the practitioners.

Especially in this country, where denial facilitates harm in the shadows.

Also, given the breadth of fetishistic kinks within Japanese sexual consciousness, there's a desperate hypocrisy in appealing to so-called 'morality'.

Couldn't think of a sharper mind to lead the charge on this.

Ultimately though, the person acted on the information and experience that they had at the moment (s) they had thought it the best action to help protect the children, which is his/her job after all. For that, I say, well done teach. So, no different to any of , then.

Good grief, what a take!

Glenn Greenwald!? I mean, sure...pre-2012 era Greenwald maybe, but now? And the Grayzone...come on, man. Max Blumenthal et al. are recipients of the Serena Shim Award for Uncompromised Integrity in Journalism, which ain't what it sounds like it. These guys are pushing an agenda just like the BBC does.

Long-Covid does not actually exist. It is a condition known already for many other ailments and just given a new name by people who have not bothered to understand the narative of socialists. Japan does not need socialism in any form it is perfectly fine living as a capitalist society. Keep that stuff in NZ where it is clearly not working for normal people.

We'd like to congratulate the Facebook University Graduates of 2022.

No science behind the masking of children!

Imagine hitting upload on an AIER link as an argument. With names like Naomi Wolf, Charles Koch and Exxon behind it, you know it's reputable.

And by reputable, I mean garbage.

I'm tired of the J-Gov consistently playing off the back foot, but I'm far more fatigued by the terminally-online Facebook group types who hoot and holler for the sheeple to wake up, waving unreviewed papers by ousted cranks.

For example, Russia is increasing agricultural productions, gaining fossil fuels hitherto inaccessible frozen underneath. Greenland is set to explore oil/gas reserves (ready to become independent of Denmark?)

Doubling down on the root cause of climate change seems like sage economic advice. What's not to like!?

Its an unfortunate situation especially for the murdered schoolgirl but all 3 people involved are at fault.

Uh, that's a pretty savage perspective. A minor groomed by an adult, then being murdered by said adult, makes her complicit?

I question the validity of some these athletes' disabilities. There have been quite a few athletes I have watched that seem perfectly able bodied.

You honestly think some of these athletes are pulling a grift?

That's some next-level cynicism.

His activity plan had been approved by the Japanese government

And what a packed and important schedule it must be.

- wander around Ginza

- order that delightful foie gras again

- see about a few bottles of single malt to take home

- phone Coates about accommodation in Paris

Don't worry what they say Mr.Suga sure you're doing a stand up job here's hoping you another successful productive term for the good of Japan

Guys, I'd say call an ambulance due to head trauma, but due to Suga's bang-up job of managing Covid, I doubt they'd be able to find poor old Grant a hospital.

Alongside the undeniably ludicrous idea of padding seats with the least-vaccinated sector of society amid a pandemic, the mealy-mouthed platitude nonsense spouted by Olympic spokespersons is equally frustrating.

"Inspire a new generation", "triumph over adversity", "the event that brings the world together" or some variation thereof. Absolute token guff.
