@Jalapeño, really? Do you think that most Japanese people find this ok? Haven’t you thought in the possibility that this kind of unfair policies, far to lead to what your imagination tell you, can fill of misogyny the society no content with this, and lead to ill will against women, something that not only would be worse for women but for all the society.

"Allowing different surnames risks destroying social stability, the maintenance of public order and the basis for social welfare.” It is attacking their culture, traditions and traditional values, not necessarily destroying all what he says.

@M3M3M3 There is nothing bad with all men or all women teams, what we should wait is only that free competence put everyone in their place. If any team is succesful, it is not important how many men or women form it, it is not even our business, the only thing that matters is the this team somehow achieve to be succesful, thats all. Let natural selection do its job.

I don´t think that promote that women keep working after they have their children is going to increase women´s or men´s desire in have children. I think the important reasons why people not want to have children are more fundamental and general, I think they have to do with the fact that many people prefer an easier life and they don´t want to make the sacrifices implied in forming a family or just have expectations to decide have children that are superior to those the reality offers them, but it have to do much more with subjectivity than with the reality. Maybe the problem is that for many people the life is very easy and full of stimulus.

Posted in: Japanese company offers insurance plan to protect against false train groping accusations See in context

How terrible must be the situation for men that an insurance company comes with this? I just see astonished how the things have come to that shocking extrem. Groping could be annoying, but its really hard to believe that something as simple as touch another one could be taken as a crime. And if Im saying this, its because it had happened to me and I know what it mean. It is something that wont harm you and something that you could not remember 5 minutes later without any change in your life. In general only showing that you are aware and against with what is happening will be enough to stop it, and besides even when I never felt the necessity to do it, one can always slap the one who is bothering you.

One of the worst consecuences of this, is that it can easily make people to think that government is giving an unfairly treatment to men and that its trying to put women over men, something that very easily can lead to men feel resentful toward women and an unhealty society. For what I said before I think too that many years ago when there weren’t that many laws, the society was healthier.

Posted in: Syria's Assad blames France as Arab world condemns Paris attacks See in context

"US has demonized Assad with their puppets countries. The US also created chaos in Iraq, Libya, Egypt and are so happy with their "uprising". Guess what? The world is by far more worse with the removal of Ghadaffi, Saddam, and even Barack. Yet they are still pushing Assad out of power, Oh wait, Assad is with the Russians and Iranians so its very dangerous. So who is the real world terrorist? Thee great almighty USA."

I didnt know why this comment have that much dumbs downs. It not only have much of true, but it show something very important and clarifying: before the wars West made in middle east we didnt have the violence and terrorism that we have today. West itself is who generated the problem and made it grow until it go away its hands.

I've always thought it can be even better for the marriage when the man financially support his wife, because in this form she could invest all her energy in the marriage, letting herself be more submissive, patient, pleasant, etc. But it seems that in this case, J women take it for granted and not value what men are doing for their.

My lecture of this is that something in Japan is happening that is filling men of hatred, and if men continue growing in hate, both women and men will be doomed to misfortune.

Posted in: Deep-set attitude hampers 'Womenomics' See in context

It’s true that it’s profitable for a woman have money, not have to be a company slave and enjoy her children; but if regarding this she can compensate her husband, investing her effort in him and her family, it would lead to strengthen the family, so it would be the family who gain at the end, and therefore he would be gaining too, because though he is working hard, he knows his work is being enough to get what he needs and what he values most. Am I wrong?

Posted in: What irritates men most about women? Let's find out See in context

“If you insist on working fixed hours and quitting at quitting time, don’t work full-time – get a part-time job!” I think we need to see how the things there are. If to work extra hours is part of a no written contract, he is right, this job is not for her; but if you can chose to avoid the extra hours as a valid option on the basis that you won’t receive neither the same the ones do work extra hours, it could be balanced.

“Power harassment! Sex harassment!” Just the existence of these words show that the laws have gone crazy. Only really serious things should be seen in that way, and these things are so serious and clear that we don’t need the existence of these expressions to attend them.

"short skirts, tight sweaters and sexy perfume that seems to encourage precisely the behavior that regulations against sexual harassment are meant to thwart" I’m partially agree. While is true that it is not enough reason to assault a female, there should exist disciplinary measures inside an office to promote people focus in their work. In other hand as it is true that is not correct for example to touch a female only because she is showing too much, it is true too that we neither should take it like something really serious in the case were to happen.

“Even if I help with the housework, she’s not satisfied; she makes like she’s the only one whose working!” It depends much on the particular marriage; I have a near experience where the wife works a partial time and they solved it in a particular way: They agree that duty of him is pay the bills even if she works, so the money that she gets is only for her personal use, but she have the duty of make all the housework without expect help from him.

I think it could be a cultural matter, but I cant see as serious as others something like this notice. Im not saying that he shouldnt not be punished, specially because it were against her parents consent an she were threatened with a cutter. But after these maybe terrible days, she can continue her life ahead.

Posted in: Japanese activist wins U.S. Woman of Courage Award See in context

@toshiko: I dont know how have been the culture in Japan along the time, neither now. But I have clear that gender roles are important because many reasons. Two of these reasons are that gender roles make men and women become the complement of each other, and that gender roles help to minimize the frictions between men and women due to each of them live in their own world. I think women always have had their sphere of power inside their world, because they have been the ones that stay home, and decide and solve the problems there. Besides I think usually men havent been very interested in rule over things that not belong their own world; I ve seen that men usually have no problem in let women decide about things that anyway have to do much more with women than men. My main point is that I think that traditional roles have worked better for the family that the new trends.

Excuse me, but I dont see the problem. Im not japanese but for me its natural. As simple as if in concordance with your cultural values, you understand that women must take their own rol for the benefit of all, and you are concern with productivity, you will act in consecuence. And yes, I think feminism is a bad adviser.

For me feminism is destroy cultures, its destroy big part of womens appeal through making men more feminine and vice versa; its destroy the mystery, the exclusivity and the value of be a woman or be a man, its destroy the interest in form a family, its construct a world where men and women dont need to each other.

Posted in: Foreign men share their reasons for divorcing Japanese wives See in context

I wonder if there are similarities between the way the sex within the marriage is seen in Japan and the way it is seen in other traditional cultures, like christianity, judaism or islam. Anyway there must be a strong connection between the inclination of wifes to avoid sex, and wifes approval of married men using prostitution.
