I don’t agree with his comments at all but I wonder if his ‘views’ have been formed on seeing the trans issues in the US & UK?! It’s getting confusing to separate now it’s LGBQT+4&FZ-3….If he’s seen male rapists being sent to women’s prisons & 60yo men getting changed in the girls swimming pool changing room (when school girls are in there) just because they ‘ID as a woman’ I can see how he’d develop a bad opinion.

Not surprised ANA made such a profit, we always fly with them but they LOVE to rip off families. Whack their prices up In school holidays just to make sure they make every single yen out of families, like all airlines/hotels do….

If they don’t go after them with a civil case then these idiots will carry on doing it because they’re getting millions of views on TikTok, that’s all they care about. Go after every last ¥ they have, then they’ll think twice about doing it.

Amazing how people have such an issue with sustainable whale hunting-there’s around 1 million Minke Whales in the oceans. The Tuna population is nosediving because of over fishing and will most likely go extinct in my life time, if not my children’s life time yet nobody cares. Ridiculous.

Looks like the main driving force is to get everyone to pay for vaccines/treatment themselves rather than the government foot the bill.

What they’re saying is that the local town should have foreseen that there are stupid parents in the area who can’t control their kids. This is exactly the sort of family that’s on the news every year because their children have been washed away in a river. Maybe the kids should be taken into care if the parents can’t look after them properly.

@fatrainfallingintheforest the report in ‘mainichi shinbun’ has all the details. Search ‘Japan police shooting’ and it’ll come up, there’s a photo of the car without a scratch and also a photo of the flat bullet where the senior officer, a ‘assistant inspector’ just missed his leg/foot when he shot the floor-the third bullet he shot that day.

Amazing how the front of the police car didn’t seem to have a scratch on it. Both of the red flashing lights on the front were working after it had been ‘rammed’….one of the police actually fired three shots, he narrowly missed his own foot when he was trying to holster his gun with his third shot.

@Michael Machida-No it is not. Not sure where you get your facts from but the use of the word ‘many’ is ridiculous. There are a LOT more developed countries that are closer to 14yo than there are 8yo.

They’re in the facility because they can’t look after themselves so it seems reasonable they shouldn’t be able to bring new lives into the world that they wouldn’t be able to look after.

What is ‘Daniel Read of Greenpeace’ doing to help the situation other than whinging and whining? I wonder how he got to Japan, did he walk and swim to get here?

‘contribute to the advancement of women in society’…..not thought about doing that in Japan then?

This makes my blood boil….my daughter is 13yo, if this girls father is like me then the sick individual is very lucky the police got to him before her father did.

Interesting how there are different levels of murder in Japan. I sympathise with his situation BUT if a 50 year old father had said his 18 year old daughter had ‘asked to be killed’ would he have been given a suspended sentence?!…

Sat in the same room opposite each other for 14 hours but wearing a mask means they won’t be ‘close contacts’ if one of them were to test positive. Which clowns make up these rules? 14 hours sat opposite each other at close distance is a ‘close contact’ in most peoples eyes.

Can’t stand the bloke but this is the perfect assignment for him. He won’t give a inch and he’ll offend them at the same time, good thinking.

Luckily our log stove burns 24 hours day up here, no need to set any thermostat…..just open the windows when it get to hot.

Funny they always call ‘Masako’ a ‘commoner’ at every opportunity they get & use it as a insult. She’s one hell of a clever woman, she speaks at least 5 languages.

‘I urge people to refrain from visiting outdoor venues for countdown celebrations’……brilliant, let’s all meet up indoors where there’s much more chance of spreading a virus compared to outside! Do these people have to pass some form of ‘idiot training’ before they get the job?

Fxgai-I got mine recently as well, they explained exactly how to get the ‘points’ and supplied a leaflet with it explaining everything again. It wasn’t hard….

‘The law on equal opportunity employment for men and women, which also applies to foreign technical trainees’…….the fact they have to state that it also applies to ‘foreigners’ tells you all you need to know about Japan.

‘discriminatory’ because they might deem Chinese people as ‘rude’….that made me laugh. Having lived in China for 2 years it’s not discriminatory to describe them as rude, it’s accurate. Very friendly and very kind but also rude….taking a dump in the apartment elevator is rude, opening a door that says ‘staff only’ so your kid can take a dump in the ‘staff only’ corridor is rude, all happened on a daily basis.

He probably did it judging on his past. However, he shouldn’t be in prison for a crime if there is no evidence against him other than a confession…..which could have been beaten out of him.
