Posted in: Japan urged to stop requiring transgender sterilization See in context

The group based its report on interviews with 48 transgender people and legal, medical and other experts in Japan. It said the country has fallen behind globally in recognizing transgender people's rights and still enforces "outdated, discriminatory and coercive policies."

48 cases should not a policy make.

I accuse the accusers of pushing a weird agenda.

Are the pharma planting these trees?

@Open_Minded

But which lobby would be the first to complain if measures were put forward to reduce the plantation of Cedar trees? Well, the medical lobby, obviously.

Also, it gives bureaucrats something to brag about.

What, pray tell?

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS!

The medical industry makes billions of dollars off of this illness. Plant the disease outside the city, the disease floats into the city, people get sick, and as a result, BOOM -- dozens of medical products and advertising campaigns emerge to help mitigate the issues of the illness.

It's a manufactured ponzi scheme.

@girl_in_tokyo "I don't know, because as I said, I'm not a sportsman"

But are you a sportsperson, or a sportswoman? or are you a sports-xirperson?

Saying no based on "icky" and "weird" is not the topic -- the policy of transwomen in female sports is based on biological data. bone density, upper-body strength, etc. You can easily research this. I will not provide you with homework.

Girl_in_Tokyo: why should a trans-woman be denied of receiving a pap-smear? the trans-woman requested a pap-smear, but was refused. Why are you being so transphobic?

Why can only trans-men receive papsmears? why are you being so transphobic?

If being trans-whatever is legitimized politically, many laws protecting women will be exploited by men claiming to be trans. This will happen with scholarships for women, small business loans for women, and even job placement for women. Loop holes are exploited by anyone. Why should all of the laws and practices that have been put in place to help women succeed in the world essentially be opened to exploitation by anyone claiming to be trans? From the perspective of enacting policy, not from based on how you feel things should "just" be, why would trans-laws be enacted?

A trans-woman walked into a hospital and demanded a pap-smear. The nurse refused, and was punished.

A trans-woman changed their car insurance from "man" to "woman" and had their insurance reduced.

Trans-women athletes are now winning female-scholarships, thereby denying the scholarships to biological women.

If trans-laws are enacted, that's fine. It will (1) increase the statistics for female sports, which can then be exploited by post-modernists in their "everybody is equal" claims, and (2) give more economic activity to men who will wear panties to work and reap the economic benefits allocated to women.

The percentage of actual trans-people to the percentage of males that will exploit trans laws for their benefit will only weigh heavily on the latter category.

Good luck with your non-sense laws!

Posted in: In success for 'Captain Marvel,' a defeat for trolls See in context

I remember all the girls reading comic books when I was a kid in the 80s and 90s. They all thought comic books were cool and not dorky at all.

 Larson later said she, after noticing that critics reviewing movies "appeared to be overwhelmingly white male" decided to make her press interviews "more inclusive."

The majority of critics about a comic book movie were white male? Imagine my shock! I wonder what the demographics of a rap concert in Harlem look like?

Posted in: Will ‘Voice Up Japan’ encourage Japanese women to finally speak up about inequality? See in context

The writer claims that Japanese women don't speak out, but provides no evidence.

This type of allegory is dangerous in my opinion.

It turned out that this trend of silence is so deeply embedded in Japanese culture that most people abide by it without a second (or even an initial) thought.

I would like to see the evidence of "it turned out". Why should I believe this type of statement? "Without even an initial thought" implies that Japanese people do not know that sexual harassment is wrong. It's a pretty disgusting thing to write without providing a shred of evidence. ON TOPIC!

I wonder if Central and South America can stabilize themselves. Some areas seem more or less stable, but on the whole it's looking more and more vulnerable to outside meddling. Would be great to see less death, too.

I can't wait until we get into the serious technological revolution, beyond the black mirror of our smartphones. 5G just may destroy Instagram, Facebook, etc.

Think of the glory of a destroyed SNS media.

Fear the curtains that open to reveal its beyond.

@sf2k air quality, as in how many are smoking at that restaurant or cafe?

This is a great idea. In the past year or so, I want nothing to do with smoking establishments. Even when people are smoking on the street from 50 metres ahead of me, I think, "How dare ye!"

Surveillance Capitalism -- do you really think that we will be using paper and filling out our addresses 3 times every time we go to a government agency? Our current structure is built upon WWII style record-keeping.

Do you want your children to go to Government Building, or should they be able to access government services through an app?

It's of utmost importance for nations to build their own infrastructures regarding 5G, or else another nation with separate values will code it for you.

Posted in: Muslim women can rent 'wagara' hijabs to match kimonos in Kyoto See in context

It's a sales tactic, obviously. Islamic people don't really drink so they have a lot of extra disposable income -- and these extra bills are perfect way for a temple to seek to improve their revenue streams. The temples may have a lot fo fabric left over from when more people actually walked around in Kimonos, so why not repurpose the fabric and line your pockets with currency, instead of lining your pockets with old fabric?

Hopefully when I go a temple sober I will be able to buy a cowboy hat made out of kimono cloth and use it as a giant, foldable whiskey goblet.
