-2 Good Bad SimondBDEC. 14, 2014 - 03:11PM JST I've really got no problem with gay marriage. Why should I care what two people chose to do? Go for it. But what I do object to is that I can be slanged off if I don't express my undivided support for it. Saying I 'm not concerned either way is not good enough for the Rainbow Crowd. Unless I express my total support for these people somehow I am wrong. I don't need your confirmation and you should not need mine.
"These" people? Lol We are people just like you. If gay marriage were legal everywhere then, no, we wouldn't need your help. But the fact that it's still illegal means that we need all the support we can get. We should be living in a world where we all just mind our own business, but there's still injustice everywhere so we can't just sit around. It must be easy for you to say just to sit there since it sounds like this world is in your favor anyway. Must be nice!

I was hoping to apply to colleges here soon in Japan and this is not reassuring at all :( Honest opinion, would you recommend people move to Japan if not already there? Does anyone really see this getting better or is it an unspoken doomsday just around the corner? :/

@Guillaume - I agree 100%! Japan in not perfect (nor is any country) and I find it amusing how defensive they get when someone criticizes them. IE: How many times has TEPCO lied about the leaks? Yet they claim to have it under control now. Their credibility is beyond tarnished, it's almost comical. Something that could be potentially life threatening for the entire world has not been taken seriously. I don't feel bad for Japan- they need to get it together.

Posted in: America's interests at home and abroad are no longer served by footing the defense bill for a demilitarized Japan. It's time to fully unleash the extraordinary resilience of the Japanese people to help the U.S. better ward off communist China's regional aggression.
