They should be prohibited as it is illegal in other jurisdictions

Could tell us which other developed country these photos are illegal?

There is a huge gap between "inappropriate" and "illegal".

They are rightist for sure, but being right and being conservative are two different things.

It is precisely because they are conservative (not wanting to change anything) that the LDP was against the proposal.

Are you saying Reiwa Shinsengumi is also conservative for not agreeing with the metropolitan plan?

It's about being pro-reform or anti- reform instead of blindly saying I will not support anything party A is suggesting because they are left or right.

I would say it's more about "this reform is good" vs "this reform is BS".

For those who don't know, Ishin is a rightist/conservative party.

85% of Rikken (national liberal party) supporters voted No, while LDP supporters remained ambivalent.

Reiwa Shinsengumi (Taro Yamamoto's party) and the communist party are strongly against the plan.

10s/20s voted No more than 30s/40s so it's not as simple as "Young vs Old" either.

But I guess some usually rational people blindly cheer for Ishin because "It's not LDP". Just like what happend with the anti-NHK party.

It's interesting that usually leftist people supoorts Ishin because Ishin is a clear-cut right wing party.

And 10s/20s oppose more than 30s/40s so It's not as simple as "Old vs

Young" either.

85% of Rikken (main federal opposition party) supporets voted no.

The pathetic fact is that only 16.42% of Osakans voted.

Asahi says 28% voted as of 3pm. Could you tell us where you got that number?

The benefit of having the US bases in Japan benefits Japan a lot more than the reverse.

US bases in Japan are beneficial for USA's international geopolitics, particularly against China and North Korea. You enumerated several benefits for Japan but didn't mention the obvious one for US.

DaDude, that notice is the authorities calling on the people to give thanks.

Apparently SKIP is a Pachinko chain based on Kanagawa.

You made that up or you know more about this notice?

Really? Because in my country,Italy which was hardly hit by this tragedy we all stand united with our health system,we praise and respect our doctors and nurses and we treat them like heroes rather than bully them.

Every country has its share of stupid people. There are also good people in Japan who praise health workers in Japan.

The thing is she proposes the whole "生理のときはこのピンバッジを胸につけることを提案します". It's not like the plan "生理中はどこか(somewhere)にバッジをつける"was proposed before by other staff.

And, the original text clearly says 提案 but again you say "提供". Am I missing something? Please correct me if I'm wrong for using "提供". It's no wonder your wife said "No, that's not what it says" If you explained using "提供".

The sentence is clear that the woman proposes that the badge is worn on the chest. It does not refer to the plan overall.

Yes it refers to the plan overall. It's not like she's concernd about the location the badge resides. Chest or not is not importeant to her.

Again, it does not say that the idea came from females.

IT DOES. Your translation is wrong because you used "we" but it should be "I". It's pletty clear.

If you read through the article you can see the reasons for the badge were very feminist.

That's one meaning of the word, but is incorrect in this context. In this context it means more to offer an opinion.

No, Its absolutely correct in this context. As a Japanese native I can tell. In japanese many words are omitted, but by in this context "提案" is about the badge plan, not about previous "生理に対する理解を深めたい" sentence.

Sorry, maybe my translation was off. you should reas the whole paraglaph,

This move was mostly welcomed by female employees in Daimaru.

 女性従業員たちからも、

「生理の話を職場の人とできるようになったことが大きな一歩だと思う」

「同性同士で話すことで、ポジティブな雰囲気で盛り上がれた」

とおおむね賛同の意見が多いという。大丸側は今後、お客さんの反応などを見て継続するかどうか検討する予定だ。

 So this things happened because solely all male execs decides what their female staff should do and wear?

No. Actually the opposite. A female employee sugessted this badge in the first place.

Xenophobia. The sad thing is that a lot of Japanese probably found what they said terribly funny.

I'm Japanese and no I say It's not funny for most Japanese. It just doesn't make sense as a joke.

And this comedy duo is almost unknown. This is news because the joke was racict, not funny.
