Why are people assuming this is sex based stuff that needs to be saved for sex ed?

It's for elementary school, boys and girls form bonds, and friendships and even the occasional hand holding, no one is up in arms about that.

I think this is aimed at educating about children who don't fit the standard gender roles. Those kids exists, and instead of ignoring them, providing some education about who they are, for themselves, as well as for their friends and peers, isn't going to hurt anyone. In a culture where everyone has a place, and fitting in is crucial, the more understanding there is, the better.

Nice story, good to read some happy news on here on occasion. However my wife read the Japanese article, she says the brides name is actually Erina.

English Teacher, Canadian.

I was on the platform at shinjuku station. The whole station emptied onto the street, got a great picture for my local paper back home. I spent about 10 hours in shinjuku hunting for electrical outlets to charge my iPhone while trying to contact my wife, who unfortunately had a regular old keitai. Eventually I walked about 10 km to a friends house and stayed there. Long weird day, but for the Tokyo crowd it was nothing compared to the north.

It's funny, I never considered talking on the train in Toronto because there is no signal on the TTC.

I was surprised when my girlfriend told me I couldn't do it here.
