For those wondering what the big deal is, women can understand the connotations of Mori's comments. We hear, "I don't really respect women's opinions." "Listening to women's opinions is a waste of my time." "I don't think this is the place for women." "Men are superior to women in the workplace."

He's elderly, has had recent health problems and was STILL reluctant to wear a mask???

I don't believe he's sorry for his comments regarding women. I believe he's sorry his comments gained so much media attention.

Unfortunately flying monkeys will ensure his position remains secure.

This is what happens when you call out a narcissist. No doubt Mr. Shimizu is the first one to point out when someone else isn't wearing a mask or wearing a mask correctly. Poor doctor.

It's great that the government is finally starting to do something, but people are simply not getting the message even when it's during the day. Restaurants and cafes in Osaka seem to be meticulous about people using hand sanitizer before entering, but once inside people often take their masks off right away, speak loudly and LOL all over the place. I've also observed tables and menus not being wiped down properly. Since we're in the middle of a pandemic, it might also be time to temporarily stop the loud, enthusiastic welcome that you're given when you enter most places in Japan.

Yes, what's the difference between speaking loudly and using your cell phone?

This is very disturbing news. I hope the women involved are coping okay. What a disgusting individual.

Of course he's sorry. This kind of letter was only a matter of time. I hope it doesn't make a scrap of difference to the case.
