Posted in: Harassment of women can never be tolerated: Ivanka Trump See in context

Taliking ... I mean writing.. about sex harrassment, does it only happen to women, like .. from men ? Women do not sex harrass men (or women) ?

I dunno, just asking.

We now now that men seccarrass (here’s a new word to the world) other men, Kevin Spacey said it recently, but I hear nothing from the woman side ? Any stories to denounce anyone ? This is your chance, the Media is grovelling for it..

Posted in: Dual citizenship is not permitted under Japanese law, making the country an international minority over the issue. What do you think are the benefits of allowing dual citizenship? See in context

Chime2017, you are right for some and yet too extreme. These days we see more and more intercommunal unions between people of different cultures and .. nationalities. To say that both parents should be Japanese for their child to be Japanese is restricting Japan to its own people and denying the effects of Love to happen.

That one should know Japanese does not have to be conditionnal.. it is obvious if the new citizen wants to assimilate with the social and material environment. If not ... one will never be part of the local scene.

I do not know of cases where Japanese citizens residing overseas have been required, by law, to learn the local language.

As for translation services, they already exists for non-residents who deal with Japan and for tourists.

Restricting citizenships to just one is to me a non sense in this modern days of universalisation !

Governments have all the tools they want to verify and check, cross check who and what we are. Fingerprinting at airports is one of those tools. Links between national intelligence and fiscal agencies are buzzing with information sharing, sometimes with near instant results.

So multiple citizenships, if aquired legitimately, whether by birth, naturalization, marriage and even .. adoption, then become a given right which no Government has the logical right to remove. Rather than making laws that prohibit with the risk of putting people in trouble, accepting and assimilating is the only way to go, for the sake of both Country and Citizen.

One important thing to remember though: having one citizenship does not exempt one from the country of citizenship's laws. If one is in Japan, for example, one cannot pretend to be exempt of the rules of the country under the pretext that one is multiple citizen, even if one has used one’s non Japanese passport to enter Japan. To seek help from one’s other country’s embassy when in strife is then an abuse of our multiple citizenship privilege.

Financially wise, there are many rules and agrements that allow for multiple citizenship. Japan is no exception.
