Posted in: Aide to Kishida says he would hate to see LGBT couple See in context

@Speed,

But I do know how uncomfortable it can be to see two men kissing and tonguing each other in public. When I saw that in a movie theater in the row in front of me, I didn't really dig it. I'm hetero so seeing a man and a woman do that or two women doesn't bother me though. That's the truth.

Reminds me of the immortal line in Jimi Hendrix's proto-metal classic:

'SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THIS GUY

@Antiquesaving,

Excellent summation of the divide and conquer strategy!

Christian evangelical right group "Family Research Council" mapped out three non-negotiables in the fight against transgender people:

The first is to “divide and conquer. For all its recent success, the LGBT alliance is actually fragile and the trans activists need the gay rights movement to help legitimize them.” In other words, separate trans activists from the gay rights movement, and their agenda becomes much easier to oppose. As Kilgannon explained, “Trans and gender identity are a tough sell, so focus on gender identity to divide and conquer.” For many, “gender identity on its own is just a bridge too far. If we separate the T from the alphabet soup we’ll have more success.”

Kilgannon identified a wide coalition of potential allies outside the Christian Right who could confront trans friendly measures. Here’s her advice on how to draw them in:

Explain that gender identity rights only come at the expense of others: women, sexual assault survivors, female athletes forced to compete against men and boys, ethnic minorities who culturally value modesty, economically challenged children who face many barriers to educational success and don’t need another level of chaos in their lives, children with anxiety disorders and the list goes on and on and on.

This:

Let's not confuse sexual orientation (LGB) with the dangerous homophobic and misogynist TQ cult here

Couldn't have said it better. I hate the alphabet soup "community" or acronym. Paint everyone with the same brush.

Like Same said above, sexual orientation and ideology are not the same.

Here are some more more Christian Right tips to fight transgender rights by marginalising TQ people. Hope this helps:

Posted in: Putin draws parallels between World War II and Ukraine conflict See in context

"We are again being threatened....." said Putin. ".......do the impossible for the sake of the motherland, for the sake of truth was -- and is -- in the blood, in the character of our multinational people."

"Sounds like Putin has been inspired by the Nazi "Blood and Soil" slogan. Putin's invasion of Africa also echo Hitler's:

Russian mercenaries from the Neo- Nazi Wagner Group have sustained heavy casualties in a new surge of fighting between government troops and rebels over the control of lucrative goldmines in Central African Republic (CAR).

The clashes come amid increasing instability in the anarchic, resource-rich country, which in recent years has become one of Russia’s main hubs of influence in sub-Saharan Africa.

The government offensive is led by some of the estimated 1,000 Wagner fighters stationed in CAR since 2018.

Wagner is an ultranationalist fascist paramilitary group founded by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a businessman with close ties to the Kremlin, and has been deployed in about a dozen African countries as part of a Russian effort to project power on the continent and extract valuable resources. Last month, the US designated Wagner as a “significant transnational criminal organisation”, in part because of its increasing role in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Kuril Islands belong to Russia. SF Treaty was signed by Japan

Incorrect. The Russians illegally occupy the Kuril Islands.

The San Francisco Peace Treaty signed between the Allies and Japan in 1951, does not recognize the Soviet Union's sovereignty over them.

The Russians occupy illegally occupy the Kuril Islands in violation of the The Soviet–Japanese Neutrality Pact which was signed in Moscow on April 13, 1941.

Posted in: Japan decides to ease medical rules on COVID-19 on May 8 See in context

Now there are even fewer excuses, as we have become more aware of the costs of inaction. One of the justifications for selfishly refusing to wear mask was that liberating the virus would build herd immunity. But we now have plenty of evidence suggesting that exposure does not strengthen our immune system, but may weaken it. The virus attacks and depletes immune cells, ensuring that for some people, immune dysfunction persists for months after infection.

We also know that, with every new exposure, we are more likely to suffer adverse effects. A massive study in the US found that the risk of brain, nerve, heart, lung, blood, kidney, insulin and muscular disorders accumulates with every reinfection. The impacts of long Covid, according to health metrics researchers, are “as severe as the long-term effects of traumatic brain injury”. Now that we know how the virus attacks our cells, “traumatic brain injury” looks less like an analogy than a description. The outcomes can be devastating, ranging from extreme fatigue and breathlessness to brain fog, psychotic disorders, memory loss, epilepsy and dementia.

We are all playing Covid roulette. The next infection could be the one that permanently disables you.

Posted in: Japan decides to ease medical rules on COVID-19 on May 8 See in context

Instead of taking simple and effective actions – proper (N95) masks in public places, filtration in shared spaces – we have steadily normalised a mass disabling agent. It’s likely, eventually, to reduce the number of quality years for almost everyone. Those who suffer the extreme version of this disablement, long Covid, are treated as an embarrassment we would prefer to forget.

You need only gently propose that we might return to wearing masks on public transport to provoke hundreds of people on social media to bray “freedom!” and denounce you as a tyrant. Against their tiniest of freedoms – keeping their faces uncovered on trains and buses – the trolls weigh freedom from disability and even death, and decide that their right to breathe germs on to other people is the indispensable liberty.

Posted in: Lennon, Ono asked Japan to allow A-bomb film to be shown abroad See in context

I believe leaflets were dropped before the atomic bomb was dropped, warning if destruction.

Much of Japan was showered by American forces with millions of leaflets, each containing a seemingly humanitarian plea to evacuate the citizens of twelve cities named on the leaflet’s reverse side. There are three known versions of this leaflet, designed by General Curtis LeMay, and the cities named were almost all of questionable military or economic value.

Hiroshima was not among them.

Posted in: Lennon, Ono asked Japan to allow A-bomb film to be shown abroad See in context

The US gave no warnings before nuking Hiroshima and Nagasaki civilians . By this point, the war was lost and the American gov't knew it, yet they went ahead and murdered civilians.

The US had organised brothels exploiting impoverished women and children, as well as live human experimentation such as the Guatemala Syphilis Experiment that targeted orphaned children, and a policy of surrendering exterminating POWs.

In A War Without Mercy, John Dower examined this key factor concluding that American soldiers, sailors, and marines generally refused to take prisoners, even if the opportunity arose. Towards the end of the war, when victory was assured, American commanders resorted to bribing troops with liberty-passes and ice cream in order to bring in the first Japanese prisoners. The combination of Japanese culture and American hatred resulted in low numbers of prisoners captured during the majority of the Pacific War.

Posted in: Lennon, Ono asked Japan to allow A-bomb film to be shown abroad See in context

The U.S. government seized and or banned publication in Japan of photographs of bombing victims taken by Japanese, a ban that remained throughout the Occupation years to 1952.

Americans were only been allowed to see grainy, black and white images of rubble in the atomic cities, never the victims, who were mainly women, elderly men and children.

All of the footage had been classified top secret and buried by the U.S. military. Some of it would eventually be used in training films, but none of it was shown to the public. The color images were just too revealing not only of unfathomable destruction of buildings, but above all the long-lasting damage to human bodies.

Seized at the same time by the U.S. and hidden for the next quarter of a century was all of the searing black and white footage shot earlier by the leading Japanese newsreel company, Nippon Eiga Sha. 

Sussan tried for twenty years to find and make use of his footage--Americans still had not been exposed to color images of any kind from Hiroshima and Nagasaki--but he got nowhere, even after personally approaching everyone from famed newsman Edward R. Murrow to former President Harry S. Truman.

@gokai,

The answer is in the article:

COVID-19 numbers are likely severely underestimated as many countries have dropped their testing and surveillance protocols to monitor the virus, meaning that there are far fewer cases being detected.

BTO is widely recognized as a leading exponent of the rock genre CHOOGLE.

 Choogle is a debauched form of white-boy boogie, after white-boy boogie drank too much Old Crow and fell asleep on his deck listening to Grand Funk Railroad.
