Posted in: Kishida cautious about same-sex marriage See in context

“We need to be extremely careful in considering the matter as it could affect the structure of family life in Japan,"  It’s an old rebuttal, but what about infertile couples, old age couples, or couples who simply don’t intend to have kids? Why treat them any differently? This is nothing more than bigotry.

Posted in: Japan to downgrade COVID-19 category on May 8: gov't sources See in context

Just remember that this is mainly for economic reasons. As an article by a respected journalist in today’s Guardian points out, the next time you get Covid it could permanently disable you. Go on, hit the dislike button if it makes you feel better, it doesn’t change reality.

“Rare for a female but it happens.“ So, are there any statistics to back this up or is this nothing more than conjecture underpinned by the fashionable Marxist notion that gender can be delineated into two separate classes of oppressed and oppressor and never the twain shall meet? Just a random thought.

Woke buzzwords that should cause you to make your excuses and politely leave: The patriarchy, privilege, mansplain, broppriate, manspread, whitesplain, Gammon, BoPo, Cis, Cultural Appropriation, Gaslight, Misogyny/misogynist (a buzzword but never acceptable nonetheless), intersectionality, etc. Notice any bias?

Posted in: Japan to tighten COVID border controls for travelers from China See in context

“The Chinese aren't really to blame for the huge covid numbers in Japan though are they?” Well, there’s the small issue of where this all started I guess.

Yesterday, my neighborhood had two community service announcements about the bell ringing. Then, at midnight, the bell rang out 108 times. I’m so glad I don’t live near that flamin’ bell. Let me sleep!
