And they still didn't answer the most important question, how on Earth did Kentucky Fried Chicken become a Christmas food?

Thanks to "すてきなホリデイ (Suteki na Holiday)" by Mariya Takeuchi, a song featured by KFC Christmas ads.

Sorry I meant  "Please correct me if I'm wrong for using "提案"."

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.

Keep in mind "提案" is "propose" as in "propose the plan", not as in "propose that she thinks..."

若手女性社員から提案され、このフロアで働く女性従業員に生理バッチを提供した。

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

「スッキリ」の取材に応じた今津貴博店長によると、導入のきっかけは11月22日、「女性のリズムに寄り添う新ゾーン」として5階にオープンした最新の生理用品などを扱う売り場だ。「生理に対する理解を深めたい」と、若手女性社員から提案され、このフロアで働く女性従業員に生理バッチを提供した。

This move was mostly welcomed by female employees in Daimaru.

https://www.j-cast.com/kaisha/2019/11/28373789.html

 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。

But hey this is mysoginy because some outcry in the intternet.

 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.

This was proposed by a female employee but I'm sure people spin this as a misogyny thing.

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.

So You think Kim Jong-un actually would use nuclear weapons. Your thinking is well aligned with Japanese right wing's.

If you place yourself in such an environment, it will help you understand the feelings of foreigners in Japan.

If you have money, sure, study abroad or join NPO overseas. If you don't (like me), studying English or watching Youtube in English is maybe enough from my experience.

I can speak English relatively well (for a Japanese) but rarely have seen non-Japanese people in my life. But still I understand how non-Japanese people struggle in there life (at least I believe so).

Start from language.

My only problem is with the babies on this site who would rather troll someone and call them names and take other cheap shots because they disagree with them rather than engage in intelligent debate. That's all.

If that's about me I must say I'm sorry. I don't wanna make an excuse but English is not my first language.

I respect your opinion. I thought It's interesting that usually like-minded people are divided about topics of US bases, alliance and Okinawa. Maybe I should've said "interesting" rather than "funny".

If that happened, that would be the end of the right wing in Japan.

Funny you say that because some people who usually agree with you (like Yubaru) say the withdrawing is exactly what the right wing want.

Comment from Yubaru:

Folks, Trump is doing Abe's dirty work for him here. Dont be fooled, Abe likes the idea that Trump is making these comments because this is exactly what he wants to push HIS agenda to change the constitution and specifically Article 9.

Sorry I misunderstood you. If you were talking about 専門学校 that makes sense. But I don't think "Technical College" is a appropriate word for "専門学校". Technical College is usually a word for "工業大学".

 will refuse to accept to sign necessary documents for students who want to attend technical colleges or go to work

What? Sure Japanese education has tons of problems but never heard of that kind of thing. Could you tell more in detail. I went to college but many of my classmates went to work and teachers had no problem with them. Japan's university entrance rate is still 60%, after all.

And technical colleges are still colleges aren't they? I think teachers even recommends them over normal colleges.
