Lagarde ... so equality of gender comes from working not being confident staying at home and happy looking after kids?

They need more slaves.... for sure.

I don't think there is something wrong with children at old age living at home. I think is a PR campaign to get them out to spent money for the economy therefore the bad press about it. What is wrong with family living together? As long as they are living in harmony, who cares?

I like Uniqlo but will not buy any cloth anymore if they do not help to improve the working conditions. Personally I think it should be the government of that country to set the standards.

Three of my Japanese friends got robbed in Europe from gypsy kids.

I love Japan for it's safety. I first arrived in 2006 and couldn't believe all mobile phones were displayed without security. Today it's different, unfortunately....

I have kids and in a big city like this every morning I tell them: "Be careful when crossing the road". I am so worried. We have a very dangerous junction. Every day I see cars driving over the red light. I cannot rely on the traffic lights and go.

I love whales but I hate Sea Shepherd.

Just imagine, Indians start a aggressive group like the Sea Shepherd with the slogan "Save the holy cow in US". American should not eat beef!

I want to see your reaction.

Peaceful should be the answer to everything. I do my part in not eating or buying whale meat. This is the only thing I can do as foreigner. I also do not see every Japanese eating whales and prejudge them.

Posted in: Anti-whalers say Japanese fleet heading north See in context

I do not see whale meat in our supermarket shelves in my area in Japan.

We do not eat whale and I do not know anyone who does.

I heard from people that whale was eaten long time ago in schools. After WWII there was not so much food. Today sometimes old people eat whale for nostalgic reason. Usually young people do not eat whale.

Posted in: Foreign media in Japan without piracy - Part I See in context

Yes, I want to watch a show were I can laugh and understand my humor. I need my relaxing time without Japanese TV. I cannot even talk about Japanese TV, except the weather part after the news, quite accurate, fascinating for me.

So thanks for the article!

Posted in: Increasing number of Japanese men opt for bachelorhood See in context

I am happily married and I think everybody misses out of the ups and downs shared, children, family. There is nothing better than going home to someone who loves you and vice versa. Although if someone is unhappy married, get out and run as fast as you can. Never be attached to someone and you are not happy.

Never give up on romance ...
