His remark reflects on the general mindset of Japanese men regarding women to a large extent.

Most of Japanese men still regard women stuff rather than individual.

If the radioactive waste which the water contains is only tritium, no problem. Nuclear plants all over the world release the water containing tritium into the ocean. The problem is that there is a high probability it's not only tritium the water contains.

Uchimura always keeps a smile on his face and just says harmless and inoffensive things. Those features are often seen among indecisive people. Being liked this kind of guy means that the people here don't want to bring a huge change to the society.

Traditionally Japanese hate the excessive concentration of power. The same kind of thing with what happened to Ghosn this time happens now and then in the Japanese history. It's called 主君押込 which means liegemen reluctantly incarcerate their lord who behaves arrogantly or personalizes his power.

Posted in: Mongolian professor says Japan’s name for Mongolian barbecue, 'Genghis Khan,' is disrespectful See in context

What Japanese citizens got angry at is not using the word kimono itself but one person trying to enclose the right to use the word as her apparel brand. On the other hand everybody can use the BBQ name anytime anywhere just like Caesar salad. The professor's argument is typically a category mistake. Thus the Japanese citizen's reaction is not a double standard.

By the way, Kyoto Animation is one of the sacred places of creepy anime culture whose fans are mostly chauvinists.

Posted in: Whale meat fetches 'celebration prices' after Japanese hunt See in context

Whether whaling is a tradition or not is not so important. Anti-whalers request towards Japan should be "Hunt and eat only not endangered whales within the range of the real demand and to not destroy the ecosystem", NOT "Stop hunting and eating whale itself". Why on earth don't they understand there exists a big leap between the former and the latter request? There exists no reason to request the latter one to Japan and other whaling nations.

Hey yeah. 20,000 soldiers dead and around 125,000 dead civilians.

And the vast majority of the 125,000 civilians were women and children.

Like I mentioned earlier, the negatively and jealousy just adds to the meteoric rise of these guys. Keep em coming.


Most of the above commenters recognize that actually they are popular TO SOME EXTENT but don't think they are so popular as become rank 1st and feel something unnatural. Specifically speaking, they suspect there have been some systematic manipulations on the internet voting and their popularity is inflated so much.

Because women are more selective than men. They surely exist.

You guys should remember that there are also some chijo(痴女) who are female gropers. Although they are rare, surely exist! Actually when I was a high school boy I sometimes got groped by chijos.

Posted in: Gov't to review parents' disciplinary right in effort to reduce child abuse See in context

Actually the incidence of child abuse by parents hasn't been increasing. The sensationalism caused by the mass media just gives an impression to the people that child abuse happens all over Japan and is rapidly increasing.

Off course some proper measures should be carried out to reduce and prevent it, though.

On the the other hand, it’s pretty sad to see the world famous and revered Japanese Yakuza lowering themselves to making phone scams. I thought that was the realm of college punks.

As I wrote above, most of them are just a bunch of punks with sub-human intelligence and can do nothing other than bluffing. You seem to have played yakuza games way too much in the PS4. I feel sorry for that.

Another pathetic cowardly loon attacking a defenseless victim. How often do we read about some psycho attacking a child, woman or an elderly person for no reason? They never pick in somebody that could fight back. They are just pathetic cowards! I get sick to death of reading about this crap in Japan. Japan is a safe place if you are a middle-aged man.

What percentage of children, women or elders do get attacked by this kind of cowards every year? This kind of case should be strongly condemned but the percentage this kind of case happens is still very low. You need to google "hasty generalization".

Posted in: LA mural seen as symbolizing Japan's wartime army to be removed See in context

This and other similar cases some Koreans have insisted is typically a fallacy of composition.

The fallacy of composition arises when one infers that something is true of the whole from the fact that it is true of some part of the whole (or even of everyproper part). For example: "This wheel is made of rubber, therefore the vehicle to which it is a part is also made of rubber." This is fallacious, because vehicles are made with a variety of parts, many of which may not be made of rubber.



The Korean irrationality/illogicality is totally at another level.

Wallace Fred Today 08:00 am JST

Its refreshing to see JT use the appropriate term 'forced labor' instead of the absolutely disingenuous ' wartime labor' that became the official term in a fellow rival rag due to right wing pressure. A sad day in journalism for sure.

The Koreans who moved to Japan after August 8, 1944, in which National Requisition Ordinance was applied to Korean, were undoubtedly forced laborers. On the other hand, the Koreans who moved to Japan before 1944 were NOT forced laborers, who willingly moved to Japan or got scammed by bad recruiters.
