Links, please, to these "several articles" about all the women have falsely and deliberately accused men that it is a real problem.

You've got Google's search engine at your fingertips. You could find them easily.

OK. Where are they?

Most likely jobless, trying to come up with money for lawyers or held at a koban for 3 weeks without access to a lawyer.

Yes, this is true. They say things like, "That woman accused me of raping her but I didn't".

You always paint women as innocent, angelical beings with absolutely zero malice, and men as awful vile creatures. But guess what? Women are just as human as men. Both genders are capable of good and bad.

Actually, women sometimes falsely claim to be victims of sex crimes. That's why in the west you can't even compliment a woman anymore on her new haircut coz right there, bang. Sexual harassment lawsuit. I myself had a situation in my twenties where next day after consensual sex, not even alcohol involved, she felt regret (I guess) coz she went to her roommate to say that I raped her. To then (felt regret again, I guess?) say it was totally consensual. Will I get labeled as a bigot misogynist by for saying that women sometimes indeed cry wolf?

People need to grow a thicker skin.

Posted in: 2020 has been a year of restrictions because of the coronavirus. When the virus is finally behind us, what are some of the things that you would like to do most of all? See in context

Party and dance all night long in Roppongi, wake up next morning on a sidewalk in Shibuya, snowboard all season, get my jobs back in the tourism industry, travel to Korea, US and Puerto Rico (no 14 days off quarantine) and simply meet up with friends at Yoyogi park, BBQ's and other events. Just the normal stuff.

Posted in: All participants in Osaka 'orgy party' arrested See in context

Is prostitution legal in Japan, yes or no? Coz one, since they charged money AND paid to the women, then this could very well fall into prostitution. And two, there was an article here in JapanToday not long ago about escort business seeking being recognized for Covid19's government help, that they are regular business like any other.

I hope the mother goes to prison as well, for being a coward and watching it happen. Clearly she didn't care one with about the child's life either.

Aaaand clearly you weren't there to know that was what really happened. What if she was threatened too? Better give her the benefit of the doubt until further investigations.

Posted in: The conventional wisdom is that the coronavirus is more likely to be transmitted in closed spaces than in open areas. So are you safer being close to someone in a park than in a restaurant? See in context

Maybe. In theory you'd be safer chilling at an open space like the beach, getting some well deserved vitamin D (sunshine) and killing the virus with sunlight. But then you go with a group of people and someone brings some Doritos and everyone grabs some all from the same bag. And the same with other snacks. And then it's not that safer. So it all depends how you do it, I think.

Posted in: JAL ditches 'ladies and gentlemen' for gender-neutral greetings See in context

OMG, finally! Next, we can move to erase other offensive words like "male, female, man and woman." And while we're at it, let's also change the words "human" and "mankind," as they're signs of misogyny since they both contain the sexist word "man" and might offend those less resilient female... Sorry. Those less resilient "fems" and neutral genders.

I do and it makes buying an airplane ticket at a Japanese travel agency more complicated than it should be. How? You may find the answer at your nearest EdoMura.

If these people are given the same rights as married couples, then so should homosexual couples.

Different topic as the title of the article is a bit misleading.

Posted in: Nintendo's Switch faces French claim of 'planned obsolescence' See in context

The Switch is going to be left far behind once the Xbox series X and PS5 are in full swing 

Nah, it won't. Very true that Nintendo's system is way underpowered compared to the other two rivals. But their target audience are people looking to play the same old franchises like Animal Crossing, Zelda, Metroid and Mario games, and potability (3DS and DS were there only things keeping them afloat when PS4 was in full swing).

They had this law suit coming a long time ago. Their joystick fails way too quick and way too often. After years in the market they should have been able to fix this but nope. Japan, US and other countries should follow suit.

Posted in: Do you think China made the coronavirus and released it either deliberately or by accident or it wasn't manmade? See in context

Trump may be a child when it comes to talk on public and the way he downplayed the whole virus situation is just awful. First blaming Europe, followed claiming victory over the virus right at the beginning of it hitting the US, claiming he's got a scientist mind, suggesting injecting disinfectant into the bloodstream, promoting not wearing a mask, holding massive rallies with zero social distancing. Man, so much.

But when he stated that the virus was created in a laboratory in Wuhan and everyone thought he was just rambling his idiocy, turns out the guy might have been into something. Coz there's actually a Wuhan virus laboratory and they admitted to have been testing with Corona viruses (not Covid19) so who knows? The opening of the movie "28 Days Later" comes into mind.

Even if they current government was to try, in the end, it's up to the North Korean regime let go those people (assuming they're alive and wanting to return to Japan) and they couldn't care any less in making peace, not even with South Korea. So really it doesn't matter what promises politicians make their hands are tied.

Last year was Australia, followed by the driest (lack of snow) winter so far and not just regional but globally. And now California's skies are the image of what an Apocalypse would look like. And these events have all happened in under 12 months. The signs for global warming or at least global climate change are there and denying it, is simply dang stupid.

I paid 30,000 for a sim-free Galaxy, plus 3500円/month for 10GB and 60min of talk with Au's signal. Not a bad deal. Get out of the three main networks and go for an MVNO.

Let's boycott "made in China" said absolutely no one ever in response to the tons of violations by China against mother nature, human rights, military overtaking regions and expanding, lame Tik Tok videos, etc..

Posted in: Man arrested for groping woman in station; says he’ll only talk to female police officers See in context

because it makes time spent with a gay person to be some kind of punishment, which sounds rather transphobic to me.

I know, man. Nowadays for way too many people anything they see or hear is racist, misogyny, homophobic, sexually and religiously extremely offensive. Even when my comment above refers to this one specific case of this perv wanting to talk only to a woman lawyer (only punishment for him coz he's a perv), some might see this as an attack against the gay community.
