I'm willing to extend the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the staff didn't explain its reasoning well but they were well intentioned. Yes, I want to believe that.

Do we really have to have a daily update about him?

The great thing about news sites is that I get to choose what I read and what I don't. I, for one, will read about Ohtani.

Discrimination isn't limited to Japan's borders. It exists everywhere. In the US, where addiction is epidemic, most communities shun recovery centers in their midst. And what surprises me most is the fact that active users live within these same neighborhoods - probably next door to those who argue against rehab centers. Go figure.

Why can't justice be as simple as doing time for the crime? Too many loopholes and technicalities.

It really is disturbing, how many women are murdered every week by some evil guy with a mental problem.

In Japan alone or worldwide?

Posted in: 2 children found dead, mother wounded in Gunma home See in context

An island nation the size of California with half the population of the US ... of course we're going to read about disturbing crimes. What should surprise us is that it's not worse than it is.

When it comes right down to it, we have no idea the suffering others experience unless they feel safe enough to tell us. A big part of that safety comes from not being judged.

Having listened to inane sports interviews throughout the decades, I'm glad she stood up to them. It would be too good to be true if this were a trend.

Humanity seeks relief from life with substances. I don't know what the solution is but we were a lot better off when people faced their hardships without drugs/alcohol.

Perhaps, for now, providing a unisex lavatory option in public spaces and larger private offices would be a reasonable compromise.

Agree with unisex lav. Seems too simple.

Consider the size of the population in Japan. Then, compare it to other populous nations. Read stories from other countries and I'll bet you find similar stories.
