17 sacks of porn would make a great gag prop. One of those hidden camera shows. "Here is your delivery sir!"

Shame on everyone from the webmaster to the VP of marketing. Disgusting... Not one person at Amazon.co.jp raised a flag? Asked a question? shame shame shame... Child abuse isn't 'cultural' its not a different experience if you are from a different country. So what if there are smelly secret specialty stores in Japan that sell children's souls.. Amazon is an international corporation profiting off of child porn.

I always wondered why Toyota never put their foot down and refuse to deliver the pickup trucks to ISIS. Granted there is evidence that another government bought them but it must have been obvious to the Toyota salespeople where they were going. Toyota's badge is as evident as the black flag with white writing

Women like Osakabe are the cornerstones of a newer progressive equal Japan. Good for her. All of the G7 countries need to support children bearing families and parents in general. Browbeating someone till their grave in their office chair or out of their job does not make a nation.

This article is strange in that it identifies and targets specific and huge companies and accuses them of sexual and other horrible harassment just based on someone's account of their experience.
No woman should ever be harassed. Never ever.
But should a huge company be labeled as a lawless gang of harassers just because someone had a bad experience?

I can see that. People have human skulls as mementos. It could have been appropriately labled and packaged. I am sure it wasn't a blood dripping cardboard box full of horrified heads

These are the ads with the guy in the turtle neck sweater pulled up to his eyes and the two girls standing next to him seductively.
There are many arguments pro and con for circumcision. Profit and retail sales should have no business anywhere in any discussion...

Schools around the world are becoming less about students learning and more about the ambitions of parents.. WTH Its obvious her former manager had no vested interest to write something that specific on the house. Now they look like major bullies and liars also now

A bit of creative writing?
An annoying argument ensued.
Although the young clerk should be commended for sticking up for himself, his forceful tones against a female of the species upset the other DQN greatly, causing one of them to hurl their drink at the man.*
sounds like a detective novel. I wonder who was annoyed by the argument? The reporter?

It obviously wasn't entirely on the Emperor's shoulders and a complex tangle of the ambition of war lords and perceived entitlement. I wish they could revise history like they revise history books. So many lives could have been saved.

That's really sad. For the victims but also kids need men and women to teach them in school. The next step is distrust of all men in the education system which also victimizes kids because they are taught to distrust half of society in general. Punishment in an institution or forced labor is nothing compared to what a victim of abuse or crime has to suffer.
