    Lots of worldly comments here. Everyone is so wise...can nobody think beyond their own instant-gratification.

    Maybe the school has reasons for such a rule. Maybe the school has people who support this kind of thinking. And maybe those supporters pay 6 million yen to ensure this kind of thinking is expressed in clear and easy-to-understand language. "No sex." It doesn't get any simpler.

    Doesn't anyone wonder why it's the student who is suing and not his parents?

    If it helps people and the economy, then great! I just hope that young people aren't losing out on job opportunities because of this.

    The thing I don't understand is why transgender people don't understand why other people don't understand why transgender people feel the way they do.

    This assumption that the world owes you understanding is...well...difficult for me to understand.

    If your name is Bob and you used to look like a man but now look like a woman who wants to use the ladies locker room but keep the name Bob even though you changed your name to Lisa, you know, it really wouldn't hurt your case to go ahead and try to explain things a little to help people wrap their noggins around this. Not everyone automatically "gets" it.

    Just because people can't automatically intuit your feelings doesn't necessarily mean that they are ignorant, malicious or hate you. If you want people to get over it, try a little communication. Suing the company isn't going to win you any friends.

    Sheesh!

    Whenever I read about this kind of thing, I remember something that I was taught at a very young age:

    Never toy with the emotions of others.

    Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the only times nuclear weapons have been used to kill people.

    That is the significance. That's what makes it unique. There's no debating this. Nanjing has nothing to do with it.

    I think Japan deserved whatever it got as a result of their wartime attrocities, but it doesn't take away from the significance of the atomic bombings in a historical sense.

    Its incredible how far China has progressed only if you understand that it was largely due to having unfettered access to U.S market and technology, while at the same time shielding its own. Much like Japan did in the immediate postwar period.

    Seen under this light, it`s not really that incredible.

    Yes. Let's spread the love and equality of concussions and broken bones. And while we're at it, make the world a place more focussed on violence than it already is. Great.

    But seriously, this "crush stereotypes" BS is pure...well... BS

    Ronda Rousey already broke the mold.

    No doubt they did it so they could brag to their friends back home.

    Robert DeNiro is 72, his son 18. That means DeNiro was 53 when his son was conceived.

    That's some pretty old sperm. Hmmm...

    Everyone wants to be some kind of tough guy (or girl), some kind of "beast."

    I agree with @PeaceWarrior. Admit your age, deal with your limitations and chillax. All of this fake bravado is so comical.

    Typhoon in a green-tea pot.

    Women want sole power to choose whether to have babies or not, and yes, they do indeed retain this right. Does that mean that men, the unempowered sex on this issue, should remain silent? Is a man merely a source of sperm, who should spurt out and shut up?

    That's the definition of sexism.

    I'm not saying women should or shouldn't have babies, but I am saying that as the weaker sex in the baby-making issue, men should not be silenced or shouted down. Women are still free to disagree and do with their bodies what they please, no matter what men say.

    In the end, we all live in this society together, and the birthrate issues is something that affects both women and men.

    Interesting how many posters here, as well as commenters in the article, take this seriously.

    If the word "foreign" wasn't included, I would have assumed the men involved were Japanese.

    Does that make me a racist? Doh!

    The unanimity of opinion here is striking. Lots of excuses being made for why this UNESCO listing should be denied due process. Interesting.

    It seems that because Abe is evil, and little else, we should accept this UNESCO listing. That seems to be the argument most of you are making. Forget due process, Abe is evil. Is that the best you can do?

    Steals black music denigrates black music.

    Now, now. Reverse the roles. If Jesse Norman came out and denigrated country music, would you still be all "steals this,denigrates that?" Even as a white person, I would agree with her if she did.

    Richards would be the first to laud the accomplishments of black music in the 20th century, which is why he copied it in the first place. He called Robert Johnson the "supremo." He also said this in reference to Howlin' Wolf: "We have been blessed by the music that we listened to, and let's see if we can actually spin it back around and make American white kids listen to Little Red Rooster."

    The guy is being honest about how he feels, and it has nothing to do with race. Note how he also put down the Beatles, the whitest of white bands ever.

    He likes what he likes. Don't bring race into it.

    Even if you believe the lawyer bears some responsibility (which as I've mentioned above, I don't believe he does), this is not a deserving punishment. It's way over the top, and the husband deserves life in jail.

    IMHO,what you think is deserving is besides the point. The point here is that a guy who was doing something he knew he shouldn't, got something bad in return. The moral of the story is not to do the bad thing in the first place. The potential to ruin lives, and the degree to which different people react differently should be deterrent enough.

    I hope you're not using your "deserving" calculations as your personal moral compass.

    Spending money helps spread the wealth. There are companies and shops that base their entire business on omiyage. If you can afford to travel, then you can afford some little omiyage. Nobody's saying you have to buy everyone gold bricks.

    Being a cheapskate never really helps anyone.
