Posted in: Rethinking of gender roles is a prerequisite for raising Japan’s birth rate, experts say See in context

In Japan a massive amount of ladies are highly educated, but can’t hope for high careers due to sexism.

Their grandparents and parents in general are also demographically from a very wealthy generation.

Not much incentive. I find a lot of young peeps here have less motivation than other places.

Posted in: It is very dangerous if people can be arrested and detained when they voice their opposition. See in context

True indeed! This should be tomorrows headline. In a democracy you do not get arrested for jeering the government.

You may get tossed out of the venue sure...but arrested means you committed a crime.

What crime exactly?

Why don’t we just learn to speak with another human being and ask for help, say excuse me, etc.

Its not like that will be hurting Japan to do it more.

Posted in: Young Japanese men say paying for dates is hardest part of life as a guy: survey See in context

So I’m 0-9 in the votes??

I’m the only guy who figures girls like boys to be strong and I in general pay for girls on dates.

Must be that toxic masculinity again

Lol what a hilarious read.

The top two problems seem like things guys should enjoy being and doing.

Being strong and able and (omg) planning a date with AND paying (the horror).

Tell you what, I’ll hit the gym, then help her carry the heavy bags, then pay for dinner... and guess what, good things may come your way!

Posted in: Japan, Vatican partners in realizing nuclear weapons-free world, Abe tells pope See in context

I’d say that hoping for a future nuclear free world looks rather hopeless at this point.

No doubt that other high tech weapons will be developed within 20 years as well.

"Generally, Japanese citizens have faith in the government, and we haven't felt the need to have checks carried out by independent parties," said Kusano.

LOL! Like what and who is this man speaking for? Actually the statistics are good, but my distrust in my government makes me want to eat from elsewhere.

You associate “being American” (I’m not in case your wondering) with all those negative things?

Tad ridiculous, since I’ve found it doesn’t matter where your from and anyone can be doing the bullying.

I’m not sure that you understand the concept of self defense.

If you are a human you need it on earth. Japan has many threats (China, NK, Russia) and a threat to them (the US) with bases all over the island.

Sounds like prices also continued to rise to the point where everyone lives in shared homes and uses shared vehicles in this dystopian future.

If Japan isn’t a fascist state (as you just affirmed) stop calling it one!

I have lived in 5 continents as an embassy kid and I’ve seen dictatorships. Japan is far from perfect (as democracy as a concept even is), but gimme a break with your hysterics.

”Japan is a fascist state”

My friend, you have no idea what your talking about.

I’d wager you have never lived in a country with a dictatorship, seen real suffering, or even fascism!

Posted in: Japan soul-searching over freedom of expression See in context

Freedom of expression is quite a conflicting emotion to me here, as obviously in a very old fashioned, male dominated, hierarchy structured, patriarchal society...what place has freedom of expression?

That is the right given to all to equalize us, to tell us to listen to all, and not just the big and powerful.

Spare me the nonsense and get on or get off the bus.

Do they realize they are the collective joke (and inward groan) of the entire planet? It’s rare when you can honestly say that everyone would be better off without you.

To all of you declaring this is ludacris to your minds...this is advertising done Japanese style.

Obviously these crabs and mangos and peaches aren’t worth tens of thousands of dollars.

But the guys who win the bids become famous and their companies and businesses too.

Reckless

If getting with ladies was the only good thing in life then ok.

But first off isn’t it better to be good looking rather than a half?

I also always tell girls I’m Japanese, I’m sure it helps.

Why do you think the law lacks teeth?

The elite have the most to lose, so the law will be interpreted case by case.

So basically, if a friend is in trouble, don’t throw the book at him.

We Japanese really have no experience with people coming, visiting, living, and integrating.

I get real estate agents making X signs with their arms a couple feet from my face cause they assume I’m caucasian.
