Posted in: Fukuoka man arrested for licking ear of woman he had a crush on See in context

Okay let me at least start by saying this guy is a creep and should be punished to the full extent of the law.

However this case is no defense for Women Only Cars whatsoever. The article makes a poor case and comes off more as an opinion based read.

While it is technically discriminatory, it’s unfortunately needed, and here’s a great example why.

At no point does the article state that he found her on the train.

According to reports he had first seen the victim months ago in the area of Wakahisa, Fukuoka City, and developed an affection before finally making his move at about 11:05 p.m. on Nov 5.

When the act was committed the young woman was not on a train, nor the perpetrator.

he suddenly hugged her from behind and licked her ear on a street in Ohashi in Fukuoka’s Minami Ward.

There is nothing to suggest that the train had anything to do with is this act and the perpetrator. Also referring to him as a suspect is incorrect as he admitted to committing the act.

The whole article is very unprofessional and makes Women Only Cars look worse for being discriminatory AND for not protecting women anyway.

The guy was a lone pervert nothing more. Please be better. Both men and Japan Today.

Posted in: Man says he followed 10-year-old girl because she was cute See in context

Perhaps it has something to do with those sick and twisted child porn manga comics that depict children being raped and sexually abused. I have no doubt the cops would find a collection of them in this loon's house, but they are not illegal, are they?

How many times does it need to be said honestly? This becomes a case of "Chicken or the egg."

Was the guy a creep and sought out such media,

or did the media cause him to turn out that way?

I can tell you that watching a murder mystery drama doesn't make you a murderer does it? How about a video game? Are you a plumber from New York eating mushrooms and committing genocide against turtles? No?

The guy is a creep. Thankfully he was busted and the girl is safe. Good on her for notifying her parents.

We start censoring media under the assumption that it turns you into the subject matter is the moment we cease any any all media entertainment altogether.

Posted in: S Korea wants 'rising sun flag of hatred' banned at Olympics See in context

Japans country, Japans Olympics, Japans right to wave ANY official flag they choose.

Japan is indeed a sovereign nation that is free to set laws and regulations it chooses. Generally Japan is good about this. However having the Olympics is a privilege, not a right.

Japan is hosting an event on the world stage and has to take into account that non-Japanese with non-Japanese customs, cultures, creeds and ideologies will be present.

That said, there needs to be a point that South Korea and China get over what has happened over 75 years ago. Those responsible for the war are long gone no?

At the same time, Japanese politicians backpedaling the apologies made is a bad image, that and demanding that other free and sovereign nations take down monuments to remember the war crimes and events is not okay either. Things like that only stoke the flames and outrage further.

So surprise! The issue is more complicated than we thought. Both sides have every right to be frustrated to some extent or another. The best we can do is continue and open dialogue with one another.

Posted in: Tencent, Nintendo to launch Switch console in China on Dec 10 See in context

Interesting. I didn't even know the system wasn't sold in China yet. That explains why so many Chinese tourists love shopping for Switch related items when they come here for travel.

I don't agree that Nintendo has an uphill battle ahead of them considering my previous statement and the fact that the system has a large library of 'pachinko' like games on their free-to-play library. Unless there some legal issues or aesthetic reasons for blocking a game in China, the system will do just fine.

Posted in: Long hours of gaming adversely affect daily activities: survey See in context

This survey doesn’t seem to go over the nature of the games being played.

Addiction and hours played may be correlated with whether or not there are “loot boxes”, basically gambling for kids in these games.

They feed gambling addicts and provide a small amount of dopamine for for little gains in a game.

They should be looking to ban loot boxes for minors just as they have in other countries and continue to discuss in many others.

Good gosh someone get this horrible demon off the streets, they were out there doing this for that long?!

Or...

Wow this person had absolutely no affect on the daily comings and goings of ordinary people. What celebrities put into their bodies is of little concern to anyone of us here or there.

I'm more concerned about Abe and what he is doing because that affects all of us.

Posted in: Boy in Japan uses his high voice to impersonate a schoolgirl in prostitution scam See in context

@JJ Jetplane

 It's not vigilante justice. But pedophilia is a much worst crime than someone targeting pedophiles.

You were making an argument for vigilantism. That it is somehow heroic for random citizens to plan and plot the assault of individuals for crimes. This is why sting operations exist. We do not need ordinary people, kids no less planning these sort of acts.

Now because one person may or may not have planned to have sexual relations with an imaginary girl, we gloss over the fact that a person was assaulted in broad daylight? These kids would have continued attacking people for no reason whatsoever and you're focusing too much on the first instance.

Good thing the first guy was a creep.

What if the guy showed up for who believed was a grown woman? Prostitution is still illegal. Shall we break his nose too because justice? Where do we draw the line? Littering? Not pay taxes on time, I now reserve the right to kick in your door and break your face because you didn't sort the trash correctly?

While I didn't have a problem with the boys targeting perverts

Vigilante justice is not the answer for these would be criminals, however we see that this was not the case as they made another attempt. The mark did not show so they assaulted a random man that just happened to be at the park.

Posted in: Pope Francis to bring anti-nuclear message to Hiroshima and Nagasaki See in context

Why doesn't he take his message to Washington, North Korea, Iran?

That was my initial thought, but I believe the idea is that these are examples of what becomes of a world at war with nuclear devices. Both cities have also been asking for disarmament since the war, so the most likely to welcome a rally for it is going to be these two places.

So what, "You're not ending our relationship, I'm ending it. By taking your life!"

What is the logic here? You get dumped, you move on and find the next person. Here you just ruin and end 2 lives. What a waste.

I guess it's better he is off the streets now considering how unstable he is.

They apologized. Why can't foreigners use the Japanese staple excuse "I was drunk and don't remember"

I see what you getting at. Though the only reason we poke fun at the “I was drunk” excuse is because it’s no excuse at all and everyone should be punished in accordance to the law regardless of race, sex or creed.

We should be working to a fair and just playing field (no pun intended).

A joke which shouldn’t be such a big deal but this is a job where you are representing the best interests of people.

All that commentary shows is a disconnect from the reality most people live with every day. It’s easy to talk when you’re a minister making an inflated salary and are part of society’s elite.
