Keep up trying to support the status quo for women until a situation happens to you bud. There's no need for change yet, especially women are getting much more "privileged", though they really are, although men really need to change their aggressiveness towards one another.

First step to conquer all this is to establish proper social conduct between women and men. Getting into gender groups automatically is X at the start when normal conversations are ongoing. Alpha, Beta, Alien males? None of it. It doesn't matter whether that person is funny, etc, women have to try make effort to actually put an interest to talk to a guy she doesn't like, or likes. Women have to start making an effort to talk to any guy equally, just like we do. Why is it always that we text, chat so much and the receiving end doesn't even bother to make past the 10 lines? All should talk equally, one on one.

My Japanese friend just moved back to his hometown somewhere in Yokohama from New Zealand, and seeing that he still is just the same, how will he be treated back there? Perhaps some indifference? Please shed light on this.

This systematic mentality, (the machine chunking out humans like used parts) should be stopped by each small changes as possible, that perhaps is more likely the base issue than the issues that branches from it, karoshi, gaijin, etc. It won't matter whether you're a foreigner or not in fact, since the system suppresses each individual free of beneficial thought. Coming from a graphics designer/artist/illustrator, it's as if saying we only need Japanese graphic designers that have that particular style, and not of any other cultural types. This doesn't make sense. We're all artists, at the end, although if you prefer, our style is dominant in that painting?

Obviously, it is a bureaucratic, run-around-the-mill, non-achievable system that blocks our way for an improvement.

Posted in: 6 tips for learning Japanese See in context

.....if you are in Japan, start off by getting a job in a Japanese restaurant. well, you can pick up loads of bits. How language is learned? Don't translate it to english. Try your hardest to make yourself think of the meaning visually, when you say a word in Japanese.

ps- Thunderbird2, listen to that JLPT N1 audio course again, sped up 2x XD

I think we need to watch Shinjuku Incident again, even though it's a movie.

It's because of the militaristic mentality that the Japanese/Japan is a unique country/race. And... who, or what gave this cancerous mentality to the Japanese themselves anyways? It's even affected some of the foreigners that originally arrived for a good break in the far eastern part of the world?

Hopefully, if the populace wakes up in times of crisis (no matter how late), or that your own citizens are aware and sneaking out the back door, in the end... the rich are left alone in this forsaken island.

Anyways... this may be an even impossible obstacle (but heck of a solution) to Japan's problem of identity and culture/race. Teach the Japanese themselves, that there is no race. "You are just part of a collective whole that embraces the country's work. ", again. If they are so collective, overpower one mindset that is already in there.

It's weird seeing people fighting and arguing about something that does not exist, yet we made it possible that it should exist, to the point it even changes our own biology. "Purity" of race. You even do know that the Japanese stole/borrowed many concepts and ideas from their brotherly nations. At least Korea had the initiative to invent their own actual written language, perhaps, and be twice as successful being a materialistic nation than Japan wanted it to be for it's own.

Posted in: Japan should accept more refugees, fix asylum system: UNHCR See in context

If any type person/group is using any type of ideology, belief, system, etc in order to instill violence or disorder (even corruption) then they, having understanding reason should and need change their value. If she/he is here to talk about ways that we could actually formulate a plan (regardless how theoretical or practical it is), that individual should do whatever it takes to get the first step in.

But unfortunately in Japan, disorder is covered up as order.

Considering the situation, there isn't a need for panic. It isn't a disaster, or an actual calamity of sorts. I wondered what happened to the people who were in urgent situations? Would they rush themselves?

Japan is JUST a normal country, like any other... except it's more categorized, prejudiced against it's own will, awfully bureaucratized. Albeit, unlike in other countries, negative labels are mentioned much more than usual. They've even got their own terms for such phenomenons. Saddening.

Posted in: China calls Japan's new security laws threat to regional peace See in context

A word can be spoken to end, or prevent a "war", let us remember Vasili Arkhipov, whom prevented the oncoming of a nuclear war, by arguing a moment's just "waiting for Moscow's orders", even though three officers (of a majority) decided to hastily and unanimously authorize a nuclear launch...

Japan should be now "diplomatic" more than ever, but this current Administration is too fear-mongering upon itself and towards it's citizens and beyond towards it's neighbours. It's egoistic shadow is still lingering there, fueled by it's heritages. What we should really be focusing on is preventing the escalations. The administration should've done it's best at that, too... but it's quite bleakly unfortunate that they choose to propose and article in which the weapon industries get a massive profit off, and so on. Are we not supposed to focus on the internal affairs of the country? Japan, at it's current state is absolutely not in a sustainable condition and it obviously wants to eat a bigger cake than it could.

There really isn't a point, having Japan "defend" itself from China, either. It surely may defend itself towards it's homeland, from any foreign type of hostile presence, but the fact that remains, this is actually a issue of tensions ,rivaling between the US and China, and Japan should not be included in it. For a country that has a huger advantage over Japan, (just look at the whole stats), it should be said that war would just lead to suffering. No matter what would people say "Japan needs to defend itself", etc... there is no point. absolutely no beneficial point, and we know this ourselves, beyond our social, identity conditioning.

In essence, it's great to see where and what this statement would lead to (from China)... and perhaps more so on South Korea.

It's not the length of how many years criminals should stay in prison. It's the severity of (said) treatment does the prisoner get in the prison.

Is there a little more... specification on what "kind" of "hallucinogenic" drug is being used? He might've really gone past the line to murder someone just being "toxicated" with that. Must've been a mix, obviously...but this case really does sound like a "grudge" type of thing.
