Japanese & ‘very sorry’

My 6 year old in me is screaming “go with it!”


#3

But it’s standing firm that coercing thousands of Korean women into having sex with Japanese soldiers was perfectly OK.

“The three men arrested, including company President Takashi Kozasu, were charged with breaking laws that regulate temporary employment agencies”

Good. This is one of the problems with porn, it is an industry ripe for exploitation. On a different level, though, so is the garment industry, certain fishing industries, etc., so the possibility of a product being made by slaves or exploited workers isn’t limited to porn, but porn is one of the only industries where those exploited workers are exploited right in front of your face (more or less). Not sure if that is worse than hidden exploited workers. Exploitation is bad all around, sexual exploitation more so, though not necessarily worse than being enslaved to death, as in some fishing industries, or the indentured immigrants dying by the thousands to build soccer stadiums in Dubai.

How is being coerced into having sex not rape? Furthermore, the fact the Mr. Frauenfelder not mentioning this glaring disconnect make me very disappointed in boing boing. Can I please get on that spreadsheet?


#8

Well, it’s rape, but it’s not rape-rape. Certainly not legitimate rape-rape. And even if it was, they have ways to shut it down.

“coercing” (aka raping)

Sorry to meta-disappoint you, but this is mentioned, explicitly.


#10

I have to wonder why there’s even a market for the pixellated Japanese stuff, when the the internet is awash with uncensored porn…?

These douchebags shouldn’t even have a business model in the first place… Unless of course, the punters require their material to have the creepy Japanese vibe.

Pretty sure it’s been there ( “coercing” (aka raping) ) sine the original post. So Fraufenheimer mentioned the glaring disconnect.

Leaving the original langauge emphasizes a much larger glaring disconnect. We can and do call it what it is but the apologists did/do not and that thars important to note

I think I will add you to the “Disappointed in Boing Boing” list. It will say “MNS. Complaint: Frauenfelder neglected to
mention that being coerced into having sex is rape even though he clearly said being coerced into having sex is rape.”

Does that work for you?


#13

Woo hoo!

“coercing” is a very disarming way of indicating rape. The term, especially given the insanely light handed way in which the Japanese police are dealing with these executives, does not clearly call attention to the severity of the crime. It’s not like these men messed with her time sheets. They had her raped at least 100 times. Everyone involved should be spending the rest of their lives in prison, so that they can get a good long drink of some “coercion.

I was about to endorse this comment, and then you had to go and spoil it with the second half of that last sentence.

Making up a lie about me was bad enough, but to be in favor of prison rape as a form of punishment has really earned MNS a break from the bbs.

I’m particularly creeped out by the way coercion was implemented as a contractual obligation. It has me wondering if chattel slavery might not eventually make a comeback, as long as it was administered as an escalating series of binding contractual obligations in which the property was simply outgunned, legally speaking.

Too late, tragically.
