@Awa no Gaijin
One of the most pleasant qualities i enjoy living in Japan is how feminine the Japanese ladies are.
Oh, ok so looking feminine is very important for you, typical of the Western man who feel threatened by the feminist women of the West....
And you are shocked because the "principles are based on feedback from women". Well, maybe that's because Japanese women are the most concerned, you know? Besides "looking feminine", they actually have a brain and can articulate thoughts and opinions.

Cancer survivors have good chances of being fully recovered and are more followed than average people in case of relapse. They also tend to be more resilient and fully enjoy life.
If you want prospective parents to have a licence, you should consider first all these pachinko addicts who leave their kids in the car/home alone or those young women having several kids from different men.
Personally, I would rather have a short-lived but resilient caring mum rather than a long-lived pachinko idiot but to each their own...

The inequality needs to be addressed in education for the younger generation and also at home. Women will never be able to have high positions if they still have to do most of the household work. Men need to work less and spend more time at home doing household chores and raising kids.
Also how backward is that: "not treating women like commodities", "not expecting sexual favors".
Really? Are men here really that low that they treat women like this?

Thank you for your very based comments, as usual! Fully agree with you!

I was wondering how many comments I would have to read until someone says that it's not kidnapping and that the girl was willing or lied on her age so it's her fault... Well that was quick.
Whatever she did say, he still raped her (indecent ask per Japanese law) and he knew she was a minor so yes it was kidnapping.
No excuses for him.
If someone else should be blamed, it's the girl's parents for failing to teach her online basic safety principles and overall common sense.

They don't mention the morning roll call and the rule to call parents if their child is not attending. If this rule had been implemented, they would have realized their mistake upon calling the parents.
I thought all daycares do this but it seems not.

These employees are paid 5,000E/month on average.
This is more than twice the average salary for French workers.... The ones impacted by this strike.

Sick article. Why promote this toxic culture of overwork?
I don't know who would accept such a life. No point in being in a relationship if you don't spend time together.
The purpose is to have Japanese work less, not try to normalize it and find ways to make it acceptable....

Not sure where you get your statistics from but it seems Japan has far safer than NZ on both kidnappings and deaths:
Or here: https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/kidnappings-per-country

Well I hope for those saying that there is no issue with a 25 year old guy luring a 15 years old girl in his home that they don't have daughters or nieces....
4 ( +9 / -5 )
No we don't need more info before we can judge this is a red flag. You don't lure a minor from SNS out of her home in general, especially without telling her parents and especially when you are 25. If you think she is being abused, contact police or social services.

The government puts Camera on every street corner , major roads, buildings, institutions, to protect assets and properties and yet they can't put cameras in Nurseries and elementary schools
There are already cameras for sure in nurseries and I believe in a lot of Japanese elementary schools.
Also nurseries have normally no closed room or door without windows, same for toilets with cubicles not going up to the ceiling. At least that is the case for licensed nurseries.

Sorry to hear that. I have the opposite experience with wonderful care and great OBGYN. The ones I saw spoke English and were used to foreigners so they (and their staff) were always great. Same at hospital for delivery but again I chose one recommended for the care to mothers and babies. I heard both good and bad experiences from mothers in Japan so I think it really depends where you choose to go.

I hope the father was charged with at least negligence. Why would you take your kid in a smoking, noisy, filthy place full of weirdos?
It's already bad enough in the first place to go to pachinko but bring a 4 year old there is unacceptable.

How about Japan moving into the correct time zone full stop. Should be GMT +11. Period.
Yes, yes and yes!
As pointed out by @smithinjapan, these early mornings hours of daylight are just a waste...

Kids are fine, they all probably got COVID multiple times so no need.

Thank you for correcting the figures though it is still 93% of the 65% muslim so still a majority of girls and women in Malaysia that are mutilated because some old bearded guy said it's mandatory in Islam.
Also, the fatwa is binding, it becomes a law, so yes it is a government law.

Not surprising from a country where 93% of girls are genitally mutilated and where the government passed a law in 2009 to make FGM mandatory.

Also even if some companies would actually implement a 4 day work week at 8h/day and 100% of the salary (which is not the case as pointed out in previous comments), parents would be in trouble as daycare is only granted to both parents working full time (meaning 5 days at 8 hours/day). So that means, rules for daycare should also be changed. Ideally school hours and days should also be adapted if the purpose is to spend more time with your kids...
Anyway, as some comments said above, let's have Japan first enforce the official working hours and holidays that employees are allowed to take before thinking about further improvement.

The difference lies in the type of aircraft. India allowed commercial aircrafts while JASDF are using military aircraft.
I don't know if it is a misunderstanding. To me, it seems obvious that it was always going to be military aircraft since JASDF was in charge. But maybe not all details are written and also maybe it was a way for India to pretend to accept while knowing all along they would not agree.

I can provide sources buy they are in French because it is my mother tongue.
What I am saying are well known facts in France.
I have no clue what your US sources but if you can post them, I can check and confirm.
Also Mélenchon just announced a candidate for next elections in 2 months, and this candidate has been condemned for racism already and has also published also anti semitic and anti police Tweet's. Very easy to check. His name is Tahar Bouhafs.

Of course, people can voice whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt others
Well, this is exactly the problem, women are hurt, this is why sane people like Antiquesaving explain what the problem is with trans. His explanations are very clear and as usual the only 2 answers we get is : "bigot" and "this is so unfair as not all trans people are bad".
Well, not all men are bad either but still we have single sex spaces and separate categories in sports for safety, privacy or fairness.
If caring for safety, fairness and privacy is now being a bigot or a TERF, then be it.
Gender is not a spectrum and people cannot change sex.
Trans people can play sports in their own 3rd, separate category or in their own sex category. Same for single sex spaces. This is a fair solution that ensures privacy and safety of all the women.
