Posted in: Daniel Radcliffe says he is 'really sad' over Rowling's transgender stance See in context

Anyone using "cis" to describe people that accept their biological gender/sex is someone that has fallen deep into the bizarre ideology of this acronym heavy community.

Has the Oxford Dictionary "fallen deep into bizarre ideology"? LOL

Rowling thinks trans people pose such an existential threat to women's rights that she's willing to side with the groups who fought against women's rights in the first place. Conservatives, unhinged religious zealots, nazis, anything is justifiable as long as trans people are defeated. What goes through her mind? She's become the villain in her own story.

They don't identify as "cis women"

They identify as women.

Please respect their identity and don't mislabel them.

The biggest irony of JK Rowling and the GC movement is that by scrutinising trans people utilising rigid and arbitrary behavioural and aesthetical metrics (overanalysing their physical characteristics like shoulder build, jawline, etc) they are inadvertently engaging in the same kind of sexism that feminism fought against. If you don't look like the way they want you to look like, you are trans and not a real woman.

This is actually actively harming the cis women they supposedly "claim" to protect.

Some of you forget that these people willingly sign up for these reality TV roles.......... so you can't really feel too bad for them.

The producer still committed a crime. The fact that the person agreed to it doesn’t mean anything considering the amount of psychological damage he’s been through. A person can be manipulated to "accept" being tortured but it doesn’t mean it’s right. Torture is still torture.

Northern Territories are an agreed part of the settlement of WWII

Incorrect. The Russians illegally occupy them in violation of The San Francisco Peace Treaty signed between the Allies and Japan in 1951.

Here is a starting point for your research:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_San_Francisco

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet%E2%80%93Japanese_Neutrality_Pact

You should also be aware the The Soviet Union signed multiple "friendship" pacts with Nazi Germany that enabled The Holocaust:

One example is the The Nazi-Soviet Pact signed in August 1939. It paved the way for Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union to invade and occupy Poland that September. The pact was an agreement permitting them to carve up spheres of influence in eastern Europe, while pledging not to attack each other for 10 years. Less than two years later, however, Hitler launched an invasion of the Soviet Union.

Later the Soviets took a page from Hitler's playbook and broke violated their treaty with Japan to illegally seize the islands we are discussing.

Posted in: Fan outcry over K-pop star's date highlights 'harsh' industry rules See in context

@Samit Basu

There is no rule against public dating for idols in Korea 

Incorrect. As the article states:

"K-pop idols.....are typically banned from dating.....

Specifically:

K-pop agencies, including the agency behind Twice and Got7, are famous for maintaining a strict no dating rule. Korean agencies also check idol weights every week – and publicly display the figures on the wall.

It is so stressful that some band members cut their nails short, go to the bathroom repeatedly, and spit out saliva to reduce their weight even by the slightest amount.

K-pop trainees invariably live under a strict diet plan 24/7. There’s even a famous list circulating online detailing the high-calorie foods that trainees are forbidden to eat – including tteok-bokkijajangmyeon, ice cream, hamburgers – and several K-pop idols have later shared tragicomic stories of trying to sneak food into their dorms. Called the “black bean noodle incident”, this February on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon , BTS recalled the moment during their training years when RM said he’d go to the toilet but in fact went to a nearby restaurant and gobbled up a serving of jajangmyeon within four minutes.

And in the third episode of the original BTS: Burn the Stage YouTube series, RM said that he and V once shoved ice cream into their pockets. “V and I were walking down the street eating ice cream and then we noticed a black van following us,” he said. “I got scared thinking it might be someone from the agency. So we shoved the ice cream into our pockets to pretend like we weren’t having ice cream.”

The scariest part? He was right. It was someone from the agency, and the bandmates casually said they were returning to their dorm … but with ice cream all over them.

The State Department later clarified that "the Habomai Islands and Shikotan ... are properly part of Hokkaido and that Japan is entitled to sovereignty over them". Britain and the United States agreed that territorial rights would not be granted to nations that did not sign the Treaty of San Francisco, and therefore the islands were not formally recognized as Soviet territory.

Medevev was a little less delicate than "difficult" in his wording regarding the northern islands.

Yes. Medevev is a global laughing stock renowned for graft, corruption and greed.

Medvedev owns and controls large areas of land, villas, palaces, yachts, expensive apartments, wineries and estates through complicated ownership structures involving shell companies and foundations. Their total value is estimated at around US$1.2 billion. The original source of wealth is gifts by Russian oligarchs and loans from state owned banks. These revelations have resulted in large protests throughout Russia. Russian authorities responded by arresting protesters in unauthorised protests—hundreds were arrested. An April 2017 Levada poll found that 45% of surveyed Russians supported the resignation of Medvedev.

@isabelle,

Japan announced its surrender, marking an end to its involvement in the war. Then Russia stole the islands after this.

It's Russia that didn't accept the outcome (a Japanese surrender), just like it hasn't accepted that formerly Soviet states are now independent countries. Hence, Putin's aggression in places like Ukraine... hence poor relations with many other countries, such as Japan.

Exactly.

The level of delusion and cognitive dissonance is so great I almost feel sorry for you:

@JJE,

Axis - specifically German - naval activity that was assisted by Japan, specifically between June and December 1941, to a capacity far exceeding that definition of neutrality, and thus a flagrant violation of the pact - and FIRST.

Laughably wrong.

On the eve of the attack upon Pearl Harbor, which was to launch Germany and Italy as well as Japan into war against the United States and its allies, little effective effort had been directed toward planning for naval or military collaboration among the Axis partners.

@JJE,

So, you've made it abundantly clear the Soviets were in flagrant violation first.

(By highlighting the Soviet Union's direct attack on Japan.)

Additionally, you have provided no sources for your claims to first flagrant violation of Neutrality of the Law of Armed Conflict. (Other than stating allegations that you "I know for a fact".)

In fact:

The first U-Boats didn't operate in the Indian Ocean until late 1942. By that time Russia was already assisting America and Britain in its war effort in flagrant violation of the pact.

Thank you for demonstrating the Russia illegally occupies the islands in flagrant violation of international law.

And thank you to your colleague "HopeSpringsEternal" for helping to spotlight Medvedev's greed, corruption and graft.
