Plenty of comments here saying that same sex couples can't have kids. Thats totally incorrect. They can adopt, they can have sperm donors, they can even be transgender and do it the 'normal' way. Anyways, I don't see why anyone should be bothered by whats happening behind closed doors. Most Japanese seem to accept that thousounds of hikikomori stay behind closed doors their entire life and don't bother anyone. Why should a couple gays bother them?

I've seen this before. Rookie first or second year teachers getting harassed by their "sempais" I've spoken to so many Japanese that can't stand this part of Japanese culture. Just encourages bullying.

"The children want to change their family name to their mother's previous surname but have been prevented"
Sure they do. I'm willing to bet here thats its the mother wanting her child's last name changed, especially since she wants to remarry. Things will be quite strange if she nor her new husband share the same last name as her children. I wouldn't be surprised if she is already cutting and cancelling those child/father visitation appointments.

Why would you want to ruin "the most wonderful and greatest economy the world has ever seen" with a civil war that would destroy the economy and benefit absolutely no one?

I agree, Japan is an alcoholic's paradise. Booze is cheap enough and you can but whatever you want at the combini. I'd say Russia and many other Eastern European countries have a much bigger problem with alcohol though.
