StrangerlandToday  12:40 am JST

The number of reported suicides in Japan in September was 1,805

————

That's even more in just a month than the reported death by the COVID in Japan (so far 1631, probably underestimated but anyway...). Just think about it. This actually illustrates so well that over-reacting to a threat can produce a worse outcome than the threat itself.

You do realize that people committed suicide before Covid right? The difference (accounting for nothing other than numbers) is:

an increase of 143

Which is a lot less than 1805 Covid deaths, and unfortunately for you blows your narrative out of the water.

Well, aren’t you fuckin’ clever

There’s a lot of help out there, enough to stop you from pulling da trigger.

Desert TortoiseToday  09:33 pm JST

Every person has their own personal choice to make regarding being heterosexual or LGBT

The above is a classic instance of uninformed thought. Homosexuality isn't a choice. One is born that way or not. Too many gays struggle for years, decades with their gayness because until very recently it was socially unacceptable, even physically dangerous to be openly gay. Many gays try to bury it by marrying someone of the opposite sex and having kids even, but in the end it never works. Many gays will tell you if they had a choice to make it would be to be straight due to the extreme social pressures to be straight, but they are not. This idea that somehow one's sexual orientation is a choice is very wrong and has to be put to rest once and for all.

I don’t think so. Many young vulnerable folk get preyed upon by older messed up folk. We end up with people screaming about their sexuality.

Many genuinely gay folk feel no need or desire to talk about their sexuality.

I agree with Shiraishi, he’s talking a lot of sense.

LGBT movement has been hi jacked by people who think that they and their sexuality is more important than anything else.
