Wait, she did go on to have an affair with the guy… and then at the end the writer draws parallels with abusive partners. So then it’s not a myth?
Something about this story is fishy. The remark about it being a reaction to disappointment in authorities sounds fake. Like the message of this article is being used in some political battle about gender or social justice or something or other.

It is not one doctor but the medical and scientific consensus in the world
It is not a scientific consensus. Rather it is a consensus between activists, and those who are afraid of them, and those who have not read about the issue.

Ccp members super active in the comments on this one. Good luck keeping up the facade.
The 2 directives of “communism” are to seek power and lie all the time. China, N Korea, Russia, all following these directives to a T.

Mixed feelings. Some kids can benefit from inclusive education, to a certain extent. And I agree that Japan is, and tends to be, behind the times on this kind of issue.
However, throwing around buzz-words like "social justice," is meaningless and lumps in everyone regardless of their unique needs and abilities. It really does depend on the circumstances of each individual case, and some kids will indeed do better under the more intensive guidance of a special needs school.

Kids wouldn’t get GI Jane reference and therefore wouldn’t think it was an insult. In fact if you listen to the joke, it sounds more friendly cajoling/ camaraderie than insulting. And if you listen to Rock after he slap, that seems to be why he’s so shocked about it. He was giving her props for toughness. Listen to it.
All the BS comparing this to cancer is such a crock. She’s the biggest self-promoter of her own mess out there.
Smith overreacted because he’s being p-whipped and it’s easier to hit Rock than it is to admit his own shortcomings, or perhaps deal with his wife.

Zaphod, In February 2020 Trump promised the release of 5000 Taliban prisoners and a withdrawal by May 1, 2021. And he kept the pact despite the Taliban attacking the Afghan forces before the agreed withdrawal date.
Whatever Biden did or didn't do was an ad hoc attempt to deal with the mess Trump created.

Gosh, it’s a wonder women can do anything at all with all of the “prescribing” she goes on about. What century is she living in?

Again with the “boyfriend.” The Japanese press calls him 婚約者(fiancé) as it should be. Why boyfriend? They even talk about Komuro’s mother’s ex fiancé.

Tinder is a part of it, but whether that makes men happier is debatable. I have 3 older (50s)male friends who now regret never having married or having kids. It was fun when they were young, but those days are now gone.
A separate factor is that women are now better educated than men while at the same time hanging on to outdated ideas that they should marry someone who is at least as educated as themselves.
The stats also show that certain men marry several times, while others never do. This accounts for some of the disparity in partner rates between the sexes. IOW the more desirable men are gaining what less desirable men aren’t able to.

On a family registry it likely says 性（別）which in Japanese could mean sex or gender. There's no difference. And yet we're told time and time again by trans activists that they are separate. I think this is a pretty important point that Japan needs to wrestle with before they start jumping on the transgender bandwagon.
As mentioned above, medical issues are a highly relevant issue when it comes to transgender people, and clear communication matters. There are a host of issues that need to be settled before you can simply approve the changing of 性 in family records. The impact will be widespread, and not limited to the individual in question. Public baths, competitive sports etc are just the tip of the iceberg.

Will Bitcoin et al ever achieve global dominance? Governments are developing their own crypto-currencies and will look to regulate Bitcoin. They need to control money. China is the just first big mover on this, but definitely not the last.
Is Bitcoin a scam? The wrong people have bought up oodles of it for speculation and use their position to talk it up and down just like Elon Musk. Dogecoin? He has made a killing using (abusing) his soapbox and the unfortunate people who are the fair-weather crypto buyers fall right into this kind of trap. Anyone who says "it's a great way to build inter-generational wealth" or "you're missing out on the biggest opportunity" is doing exactly this. They got in early and want more people to buy it and thus drive up the price. Similar to how pyramid schemes work. Crypto gurus are generally either scam-artists. Intelligent or not, they don't have your best interests in mind.
People who say, "you need to read up more" or "you don't understand" have probably bought into some crypto guru psycho-babble. They deny any nuanced take on crypto. No reasoned arguments can reach them.
I'm sure the original Bitcoin developer had different motives, but the way it is being used and abused means that it's no more of a sure thing than any other "investment" these days.
The most reasoned crypto-buyers are hobbyists who aren't in it for speculation, rather they enjoy playing around with the new technology and actively use it to buy things or pay each other. They are not keeping it to make money, and will probably not try to sell you on it.
Buyer be aware. Make sure you're not buying it for FOMO on speculation and to make big bucks. That's not what it was made for.

Interesting how they left out the charge of exploiting a child (his son) in a sex scene.
I enjoyed his films and thought he was a great director, but come on, that was definitely newsworthy.

As far as I remember, Japan and Germany, as fellow bidders for the original project, accused France of acting in bad faith when the original deal was struck.

The problem is these measures do not actually stop money laundering and terrorist financing. They just make it more of a pain for average people to send money around and do business internationally.

That said, I’m a big fan of the Paralympics and special Olympics
-1 ( +0 / -1 )
The Paralympics are about athletic prowess. The origin of the word is from "parallel" - an event running alongside the Olympics.
This statement is disingenuous. Originally the Paralympics were for paraplegics. Only from 1976 were athletes with other disabilities included. Para originally comes from paraplegia, not parallel, snd only from 1988 has the para been attributed to the word parallel.
