Anyone who thinks that women would be OK with having sex with more than 1 guy, everyday, during the war is clearly deluded.
Yes they were forced because anyway, what other choice would there be for them? Having meals and a roof would be what everyone wants during war time.

The problem is about people "changing gender". This should not be allowed in any case. People's sex cannot be changed and gender are just stereotypes not always true associated with 1 sex.
No male should go into women's toilets, changing rooms, competitions or awards or any single sex facilities.

"Bear bells' do not work. They are just very annoying for anyone walking nearby you. Can we please dispell this myth?
Bear bells may be a popular item to put on your backpack, but they don’t effectively warn a bear you’re in the area. Bears won’t hear the bells until you’re too close. Yelling, clapping, and talking are more effective ways of alerting a bear to your presence.

The airline didn’t force the women to do anything at ‘gunpoint.’
> There are quite q few here laboring under a major false impression
Maybe you have not read what happened, despite the fact that a kind reader added a link to the human watch article explaining the story. So let me copy/paste it for you:
The media reports say these women were given no information and did not have an opportunity to provide informed consent. Forced gynecological examinations can amount to sexual assault. Media also reported that authorities removed and examined additional women from the airport and other flights

The point is that no one should be sexually assaulted in the name of doing some checks. This is the police's job to perform an enquiry and take appropriate actions, and sexually assaulting someone is not an appropriate action.

Let's use clear working here:
The women were not subjected to an "invasive gynecological invasion", they were subjected to a rape.
And the reaction of the airline saying that the additional slots would have brought an additional 3B USD is despicable. Money does not win over justice, at least in Australia. Great job by Australia but I wish the international response would have been stronger. I always warn all the women I know not to fly to any Middle East country, sending the link to this story as a lot of people, especially women are still unaware of it.
Be careful ladies!

glorifying eating disorders
Ok so we should not glorify eating disorders for children especially, which is great but glorifying body mutilation in the name of transgender ideology is fine....
And what is the definition of hate speech? Because some people have been accused of hate speech because they simply stated the truth.

Most of these Minato ward kids have already been abroad many times, we are talking about a minority ward full of embassies and where only rich people (Japanese or foreigners) can live.
But as someone said above, they need to spend the tax money so whatever.
It would be good if ALL the kids could have access to the same education and school trips.

Drivers should put their bag on the backseat so they are forced to turn around and look there.
Not sure what is the rule for all nurseries but ours definitely calls us if our kids are not there and we have not warned them ahead.
Some alarm could definitely be implemented if car seat is connected. With all connected appliances already existing, I am sure this is something easy to implement.

To the mean here saying that "30 years is too much" and that rape circumstances have "mixed signals" and that judges should think of the rapist's family and friends, let me tell you this: ask any women you know that you care about around you what she thinks and think about it if a rapist was sent back in the society and rape a woman you care about.
What is more important? Protecting and preventing any future victims or the feelings of the rapist and his family?

No. If there is no will then the estate goes to the eldest male. Usually, if there is a will the estate is divided someway between the heirs.
That is not correct. It is divided equally between all children (or grandchildren if children are dead) and if their is a living spouse, the living spouse gets half and children get the other half divided equally between them.

Wikipedia on warning shots by police:
Police officers may use warning shots from their sidearm in specific circumstances to de-escalate dangerous situations. Such a shot is typically only used late in the use of force continuum and analogous to the appliance of outright lethal force, as firing warning shots bring certain inherent risks. A key consideration for the officer to make before firing a warning shot is that a shot fired horizontal or at the ground may ricochet off hard surfaces in unpredictable ways, whilst a shot in the air may travel far away and strike in an unpredictable place; both may cause danger to property and bystanders. In addition to these risks, a warning shot may have an escalating effect rather than a de-escalating one: if the target perceives the shot not as a warning but a deliberate but failed attempt on their life, they may return with force.

The attack was probably only a few seconds, not sure anyone would have enough time to fetch the spray/sauce and put it on the pervert before it goes away.
You would have to always remember to carry it in a quickly accessible way and not lose your wits when it happens.
The best is to rehearse the move to be ready.
For all women, read this great book: the gift of fear by Gavin De Becker. It gives advice and explain how instinct work and to always trust it.

I have read this book. The evidence that foul play is is at best circumstantial.
> All leads point to accidental drowning.
> "Tiphaine Where Are You?"
If you really had read the book, that would not be your conclusion. The fact that she was still on her phone, researching her itinerary for the day, in her room when her phone suddenly stopped does not point to a drowning...

Why on earth would you even bring this up, especially during the interview? This is his private life and completely irrelevant to his job...
As pointed out by someone else, either you want to keep it private and you don't tell it to anyone, or you just tell people and that's it....He put himself in this situation himself...

There is also the best contraceptive ever with no side effect and it even prevents STD. It's also very cheap. Condoms.

Or we could just have contraceptive pills for men. Oh wait, this has already been considered and studies done showed there were side effects... Much less than for women contraceptive pills though but hey let's have women carry all the burden for contraception, including health risk.

First there were too many tourists.
Then during Covidz they complained about the lack of tourists.
Recently they complained about the bus being too crowded and wanting to have more expensive bus fare for non-residents.

To all men here saying having a biological man in womens toilet is fine because there are individual cubicles.
90% of sexual assaults complaints happen in "unisex" facilities. UK statistics that you can find here: https://fairplayforwomen.com/unisex-changing-rooms-put-women-in-danger/
This is why single sex spaces exist. This is to protect girls and women from voyeurs, assaults at a time when they are vulnerable.
Sure women are not naked in toilets, but they can be alone there are vulnerable: they might be having heavy period, cramps, miscarriage, or simply stain their clothes and try to wash it away.
Some women and girls also enter toilets to escape annoying men.
It is a safe space. At least it was until this ruling.

To me, the problem is that society expects us (men and women) to work (at least) 8h/day and then also take care of the house, the kids, ourselves and sleep. This is not possible. So either rich people outsource everything they can (housekeeper, nanny) or someone works less and this is usually the mother.
Biologically, women carry babies and feed them during their first year so it's impossible to have a career with this kind of society if you do this, especially if you have more than 1 kid.
We should aim to have everybody (men and women) work less and spend the additional time they have making things (instead of buying them) and spend some time with other people.

The question here is: how does Australia define "hate speech"?
Because before Elon Musk took over Twitter, people got banned just for saying that "women have no pen*" and for so called "misgendering" which is actually correctly sexing.

Great news! They should also focus on the prevention part. A lot of cancers are caused by external factors: food, mental health, physical health, chemicals and pesticides play a role so everyone take care of your body and soul.

It would be interesting to know if Tokyo has the biggest number because that is statistically where there are more nurseries/daycare or if there are other reasons.
I noticed most of the daycares in Tokyo don't have a playground so children will stay inside (sometimes in small areas) all day long, especially if the weather is bad. If you imagine a group of 20 kids or more inside the whole day, this would drive everybody crazy, both kids and teachers....
