Disney can't help themselves can they, putting this content into impressionable kids movies. If China also bans it then it will hurt their bottom (no pun intended) line.

That seems kinda high with health insurance.

You get it reimbursed but you do have pay up front yourself, heaven knows why they thought that was a good system but here we are.

Muslims not to participate in programs like this or any program that could affect our religion and beliefs

You must be standing on unstable ground if people dancing and having fun effects your beliefs.

Posted in: 'Top Gun' stays aloft with $86 mil in its 2nd weekend See in context

Having movies like the new "Top Gun" is fine, but many fans also want to see a diverse range of characters, or else you are pushing the message that only straight white men matter.

Go watch a Korean movie, go watch a Japanese movie, go watch a Hong Kong movie, plenty of amazing non white movies. Fans do not want every Hollywood movie to look like a United Colors of Benetton ad with clumsy shoehorning of token characters to tick boxes and emasculation of male characters to promote unrealistic 'badass' angry feminist characters. Hence why Hollywood is dying on it's backside.

This is what happens when you focus on what the fans want, not what message you want to push onto fans. Take note Disney.

My fellow beautiful hard working woman. Welcome to club of Karoshi. You wanted and now you got it.

Perhaps once the gender pay gap is eradicated and women carry the same burden as men then the suicide rate will become equal also, because the current 100% more male than female suicides in Japan tells an interesting story.

Japanese offices need a steady supply of OL's to provide wives for the hardworking salarymen. On marriage then can leave , have a kid and then fulfill their time attending PTA meetings, cooking bentos and joining English conversation classes or playing tennis. Why fix something that isn't broken?

Great comment, you summed up perfectly Japanese wives here. There's no way in hell they are giving up that to sit at a desk for 10hours a day.

Great, I'm sure women will be very happy doing 12 hour days and the compulsory nomikai with the boss after. Be careful what you wish for ladies.

Good, this entitled generation of grown up babies really need a reality check. Some of the things posted on LinkedIn are unbelievable.

I think a two week stint in the mines like my grandad did every day would do them the world of good. Or compulsory national service like in Korea might help them adjust to real life.

Posted in: Jury sides with Depp on lawsuit; Heard on counterclaim See in context

The beginning of the end for the 'believe all women' meetoo quite frankly sexist way of thinking. Women are equal to men and are equally violent, manipulative and capable of awful vindictive lies as shown in this case.

Posted in: Accused groper dies after jumping out of train station office window See in context

The comments where men automatically accuse women of lying about the prevalence of groping on Japanese train system, when it is a fact that groping is a common occurrence.

There was no trial in this case so no proof of the accused guilt, so innocent until proven guilty. Unless you fall into the camp of believing all women as they are incapable of lies. In which case you should have a look at the Depp vs Heard.

Posted in: Man arrested over abduction of minor he met online See in context

In Japan 18 is the age of consent.

Yes and In the uk it's 16. So this moral high ground judgemental stuff is ludicrous. A 17 year old has probably a string of ex lovers and an std history as long as your arm.

How old was she? You mentioned his age, 2 years above teenage, yet you didn't bother to mention her age. Very big difference if she's 13 or 17. Silly article.

Let me back that up by saying my favourite shows in the late 80's and early 90's were all BBC. Blackadder, The Young Ones and Red Dwarf.

Watch any of those shows from their peak and you will see how far BBC has fallen.

Not only have real estate prices been falling in the country for years, but homes in Japan depreciate much like cars and become worthless after about thirty years.

Utter nonsense, find me a house in a good location in central Tokyo that is worthless please, I will take it off your hands for the land.

Also real estate prices have been rising year on year, you are wrong on everything you said here.

The strongest most vibrant and creative nations were created and built by REFUGEES. if that is not enough reason to open up your gates Japan then I don't know what is.!!?

The strongest nation in the world is China, it was not built by refugees. Vibrant is a meaningless buzz word.
