Posted in: Survey says more than 70% of Japanese people think gender inequality exists in Japan See in context

I can think of two specific cases of inequality.

Women have their own dedicated train carriage, but men don't

Female staff don't face any restrictions for entering male spaces at onsens and such, but male workers do.

I can think of no other specific cases of discrimination.

It's also important to keep in mind that aggressor states, who use Pearl Harbor type tactics, specifically launch their first strike along civilian flight routes and put civil air transponders into their missiles and aircraft in an attempt to fool air defences into not shooting them down.

It's illegal and a sinister underhanded tactic, but then again so is blatant assassination, and some countries don't follow the rules.

No more wars for oil. And gas.

Should've told that to Obama, or is he controlled by Russian oligarchs as well?

Posted in: Foreign powers back Libya ceasefire as commander's forces choke oil flows See in context

Prior to Obama ordering NATO to bomb Libya, all the oil production was nationalized and owned by the Libyan people.

Hence Libyan citizens were amongst the richest in Africa, being able to afford to send their children to study abroad.

Now their country is a Mad Max zone.

My opinion is valid, and is held by many political academics, which is that Russian people prefer strong, stable leaders. They don't want the 4 year rotating circus deal with gimmicky speeches and colorful balloons.

This is also true of Chinese society, which is based on Confucius thought, and thus holds a stable, clear and hierarchical structured society in high regard.

Cultures and philosophical thought varies throughout the world.

Deal with it.

The difference results between men and women in survey can easily be explained by the fact that girls are more likely to be dating older men.

They only surveyed 20 year-olds, and a 20 year-old girl is more likely to be dating a 25 year-old guy while the reverse is less likely.

America has a circus every 4 years where people argue with each other on stage and then a leader is chosen but inevitably, half the country hates the elected leader, no matter who wins.

Then for 4 years everybody is at each other's throats, constantly arguing, refusing to even show basic civility at times to people from the "other team". Every TV station is either comically biased towards one team or the other.

The government is basically just a big court proceeding as each team is constantly trying to investigate the other.

The modern American system is a total dysfunctional mess.

Russia just has Putin. He's the boss, and everybody knows it.

Posted in: James Bond producer rules out female 007 See in context

Take Archie for example. The characters are basically "typical American teenagers", however in all depictions Archie is white with red hair and is referred to as carrot-top on countless occasions.

Carrot-top is a slur used against white people (usually males) who have red hair.

It would therefore be inaccurate, misleading and disingenuous to portray the Archie character as another other than a straight white red-haired male.

Sure the actor can be gay and a Latino or whatever but the character as portrayed should be in keeping with the original intention of the artist.

And 007 refers to male anatomy anyways so the original artist clearly intended the character to be male.

Can’t stop walking can you.

Gait recognition can also correctly identify your birth gender since the shape of the pelvis, and thus the gait, is anatomically different between males and females.
