Posted in: HIV/AIDS continues steep increase in Japan See in context

pawatan,

The difference of a "good" virus and a "bad" virus is how it manages to spread. Ebola is a "bad" virus, as the symptoms are spectacular and quick. AIDS is a "good" virus, as someone can live with it for years, looking healthy, and spread it around. Basically it will never stop as long as we have to deal with this kind of initiative and article. AIDS is officially spreading among gays and foreigners; but they are usually more aware of AIDS and are usually not that shy getting tested , more than the filthy salaryman who pays for sex once or twice a week, and knowing for sure that unprotected casual sex is quite common among youth, I am sure that AIDS will suddenly be a bomb very soon in this country, unfortunately.

If they have a good enough look or personality they can hope to use AKB as a springboard into a solo career. 95% of them will probably end up doing porn.

I went to the Oktoberfest in Hibiya three or four years ago, it was fun. I remember there was a drunk bloke sitting next to me (around 50y.o.). I went there with a german friend, and when my friend said he was german, the old guy said something like: "German? Belly belly good! Sieg Heil!!!"

kawaisoo for the lady. This bloke has been so harsh: she was brought to nowhere, got through a divorce right after (which obviously was planned by this bloke quite a long time b4), then he get remarried, the J-lady is geographically and cutlurally isolated with her kids, and then the guy is creating this mess.

Putting the backwardness of some aspects of the japanese law aside and knowing that quite a lot of J-wives are evil, I would stand for the lady in this case.

This case will be used by everyone: CRCjapan, lawmakers, Saitama's housewives, and many more.

And even if he would really wanted to get his kids back to the US, there are tons of companies specialized in extracting children from parental kidnappings.

Posted in: Should foreign residents have local voting rights? See in context

As for the Zainichi having votes on a local level, first thing that these special resident must understand is that they reside in Japan on permit, meaning Japanese government is giving them "permission" to reside in Japan

Zainichi problems are nothing common with the Gaijin problem, historically and socially. I am quite amazed that you speak about zainichi (I mean the chosen-jin and some others), as "guests". They don't owe anything to Japan and have the right (not the permission) to live here in Japan if, by the course of history, their roots lie there. The ugly thing in this debate is that we can still see the fear and hate that those zainichi can provoke in some japanese people mind, related to the everyday ugliness of mass-komi, and the use ad nauseum of some non-issues (the abductees beeing one of them). Still, my concern was about the word you used (permission), but overall I agree with you on the citizenship thingy and the term of compromise (If a Chosen-jin doesn't want to apply to J-citizenship and doesn't want to stick to the Japanese community for ABC reasons, then a compromise should be granted).

As a matter of fact, I am quite sure that the Zainichi are definitely more politicized than the Japanese, and I am wondering if the DPJ is not looking for some support from those communities, as they certainly get out of the couch on a election day.

Posted in: Should foreign residents have local voting rights? See in context

Nigelboy, you are confused. I don't want the Japanese to open their borders and I didn't make any reference to this debate (the national one concerning the DPJ proposal) in my previous post.

Concerning the "real" debate, Zainichi are the main concerns. But as nobody treated this question in this thread, I suggest that you start by giving us your opinion about that. But beware: in french, we have one saying: Etre plus royaliste que le roi, which can dangerousely apply to your case. Anyway, no ill feelings. I like your energy (which must scare the Japaneses though).

When "foreign residents" mean the majority of posters here who can't even fill out a point card application in their local supermarkets, the answer is no

Agreed. Including hysteric japanphile (lol). If you would be japanese litterate, you would know that Westerners are not included in this debate. Japanese right wing medias and websites are focusing on the asian zainichi. I hope you won't speak on their behalf and that you will have the dignity to show love to this wonderful country (Japan) in other ways than beeing a silly, and somehow funny, wappanese.

I have millions of great memories from Yoyogi Park and thausends of families, young peeps, couples wouldn't have this great space offered in the center of Tokyo anymore if the Olympics are to happen here. Ishihara is a boring maggot who can just reconfigure the map of Tokyo for his own fame.

Rio is the best choice, for many reasons.

I think they should install red lights! It will make all a lot more kinky instead of depressive!

I've heard it's because it's red that the chuo line has so many suicide...go figure...

Japan has a high suicide rate, but not the highest in the World. But what is definitely unique about Japan, it is this strong desire to show it to the biggest amount of people (except the ones in the forest around Fuji-san, Kegon falls, Sakurajima...). Why do some of them need to do it in Tokyo-station, Ikebukuro or Shinjuku? While they can wait for the Shinkansen near Yamagata or Okayama?

Also, a friend of mine worked on this topic and wrote a dissertation about suicide in history, and he believes that killing yourself is easier than taking the decision of killing yourself. If you already have taken the decision, then you have the capacity of doing absolutely anything. And I don't think those "heroin-addicts/gloomy" blue lights won't change anything.

Posted in: Should foreign residents have local voting rights? See in context

In Switzerland, the lefties and liberals granted the right to vote for foreigners on a local level (they can't vote on a federal level), and the result was funny: most foreigners voted for the right, or even far right.

I think that would be a great idea and shake the Japanese a little bit. A lot of Japanese don't vote, and it would be funny to see how the crowd would react when 99.99% of foreigners would vote for the kyousanto. The Japanese are one of the most uncompetitive people in the World: opening their borders and opportunities in the society for foreigners would definitely be a plus, as most of J-males are worthless lazy bums, a rough competition is what they need to get out of mommy's skirts. This is a great idea. This is just Darwin.

A lot of japanese ike "occultism" and conspiracy theories, and Nostradamus, etc... Plus the fact 99,99999% of japanese never had any contacts with Jews make all the assumptions possible. I guess Nada was taught the same crap as all my japanese friends, believing in "WE japanese we are the $Nit". But unfortunately, he found out on this planet, a small community appeared 5000 years ago, and won more nobel prizes, made more significant scientific discoveries, wrote more interesting books and were more educated and wealthy than any japanese right-wing nutjob could even dream for Yamato. The Jews are not destroying Japan. But cockroaches like Nada are indeed destroying at the speed of light.

Posted in: Japanese urged to take pride in their safe society See in context

Many comments are pointing that a lot of crimes are not reported, which is, I guess, true.

In Western countries, danger is coming from people you don't know and you've never seen.

In Japan, you won't be stabbed by a stranger who wants your sneakers, but danger is in your house, from the drunk ojisan groping his granddaughter to the hysteric mother who slaughter her kid, because it's "too much too handle", etc... That's the old story that Japan is clean, safe, with a brutal undertone. You can line up as many koban as you can, all this hystery with those citizen patrol "to protect the kids" may continue, but Japan is defnitely having some issues when it's about family and relationships. They definitely are affectively handicaped.

Japan is a place made by and for japanese males, where they can do almost whatever they want as long as they follow the code. In Japan, pedophilia under certain aspects, public drunkness, racist comments and invading and raping half of a continent are not crimes; on the other hand, smoking pot is a form of social suicide. I could see many japanese male "expats" in Europe where they were so desperate for Kabukicho and Kabakura that they went depressed. Knowing that crimes are not reported is I guess a kind of agreement between japanese male citizen and japanese male policemen. Knowing that some foreigners are getting along with their women and that some chinese are actually better than them at saving money and that more and more J-Women are dynamic, crafty, english-speaking business women are just making them unsafe. They are just plain unsecure and those news about the starving ojiisan stealing an apple and the littering Chineses are just here to comfort them that whatever they do, whatever horrible "$+JT" they do, they are still the mighty homo japonicus.

Posted in: What are your views on parents hitting their children as a means of discipline? See in context

The fact is, hitting kids is often the act of out-of-control parents who have lost it.

Well, in this case I'll have to agree, but this is not note exactly a mean of discipline. Open question:is it possible to smack a kid in cold blood?

Yes, definitely, as long as it is done as the last of the last mean to discipline your kid.

Posted in: What are your views on parents hitting their children as a means of discipline? See in context

And the answer is No.

Wow, that's one hell of an argument. As I said in my previous post, smacking kids should be done as an ultima ratio, when absolutely everything had been tried. Smacking a kid pretty much means you failed, but it has to be done if the kid's naughtiness is over the top. Japan and its monster parents is definitely the country that prolly spoil their kids the most: look at their young generation of me-me-me who cannot stand any contrariety. I was smacked about once a year by my mom when I was really naughty, and I am all fine today, and I am actually grateful to my mom. We smacked kids for 5000 years, and now we've been stopping giving them a rare but firm warning through smacking them since the past 20 years, we obvously see that just forbiding them to play with their playstation for one afternoon is not enough.

And by the way, I believe that parents who don't want to resort to any kind of physical punishment is somehow making an experience and are challenging themsleves, more than thinking about their kid. A lot of parents are just posers.

I am absolutely against it! Beating up your own children is insane. Children should grow up with love and kindness and not violence from their parents which lead to them hating their parents for the rest of their lives.

And we all know what children in Japan do to their parents after years of torment...

Be kind to your kids folks. You never know when you'll wake up to a kitchen knife staring you in the face.

I am sorry, but that's over the top.So you are for love, against hate? you like peace and you dislike war? Kids who are not disciplined are the ones who become a potential danger. Look at today japanese yound men: a generation of spoiled, angry weaklings, who were never told NO and who actually have absolutely no limit when it's about their little comfort. The fact is that very immature girls are bringing their kids alone because daddy is too busy having fun with his bucho. Those chicks take all the decision concerning the kid (that are usually wrong)and raise their kids as if it were a pet.Every single mother I've met in Japan spoil their kid and are pretty much beeing spat at in the process. I remember one of them saying: when my baby cries, I want to cry too...WTF!!! Resorting to appropriate and proportional violence must be used as an ultima ratio, of course. But, talking about Japan, a lot of "smack" and "spank" would have probably saved several lives, if you catch my drift.

It makes me LMAO when I talk about Paris with some Japanese friends (especially the ladies is their thirties).

Those anti-littering dudes might have gotten the Paris Syndrome (check this out, it's outstanding).

Well, it's a good move. But as I know Paris really well, I am afraid one of them might be beaten up (and for no reason, some Parisians, and especially the one living in the suburbs, might do it just for fun).

Live Paris alone!!!!!!!! (Chris Crocker style). There are much better places in Europe. My top three:

1)Berlin 2)Brussels 3)And of course Geneva :D

@grafton

If this were a murdered Japanese girl we wouldn’t be asked this question.

Knowing that a somehow large part of the nutters in this country has a soft spot on foreign women, and that J-authorities sometimes, for some unknown reasons, let them get away with it, I think it is worth talking about this case. Google Issei Sagawa.

And hell yes we are concerned about this monster beeing, maybe, on the loose. Some J-Guys complained about how the British Medias handled this case. But from my experience, every single western and asian non-japanese lady who appeared to live or pass by this country were subject to assault. What is the proportion of male-female western foreigners living in Japan? You probably have a vague idea of this number and you also probably have a vague idea of what I mean. At the end of the day, yes, we need to care about this case: because I am sure that the J-authorities are waiting for this case beeing forgotten, and their investigation actually seems to continue in a proper japanese style: apologize, give your meishi and ask politely those gays in Kabukicho if they have seen a tall transvestite.

Lindsay's family should continue to fight, even though it must be so painful to deal with a lost daughter and to deal with those shady bureaucrats.
