Have you heard about Mayor Hashimoto justifying military sex slaves? If not, read the Associated Press article from Tokyo: HERE
Word of warning, this blog will be a bit blunt. Apparently, Mayor Hashimoto said that, “The Japanese military's forced prostitution of Asian women before and during World War II was necessary to ‘maintain discipline’ in the ranks and provide rest for soldiers who risked their lives in battle.” He went on to say, "For soldiers who risked their lives in circumstances where bullets are flying around like rain and wind, if you want them to get some rest, a comfort women system was necessary. That's clear to anyone."
I’m sorry, Mr. Hashimoto, but it’s not clear to me.
Historians say up to 200,000 women, mainly from the Korean Peninsula and China, were forced to provide sex for Japanese soldiers in military brothels.
Those of you who know me or read my blog regularly know that I am pro-sex. I think sex is a wonderful thing and should be enjoyed, shared and indulged in by consenting adults in a loving relationship. Suffice to say, I think the world would be a happier place if everyone got laid more regularly. However, sex should never be forced or coerced. Period. There are no ifs, ands, or buts to that statement. There are no extenuating circumstances in which that rule can or should be broken. I don’t care if it is wartime and the men have blue balls. The men can relieve themselves, which is what should have been happening in the trenches instead of enslaving women to do it for them.
And please don’t tell me that providing women to the soldiers cut down on rape and assault. To that, I say bullshit. A better plan would have been to make daily masturbation mandatory for every male soldier. Mandatory masturbation would have certainly allowed the soldiers to obtain the rest that they required.
Shame on you, Mr. Hashimoto, for justifying the poor decisions of your previous leaders. You chauvinistic asshole! You've given the word "dickhead" a new meaning in my book and that's saying a lot. Slavery cannot be justified in any sense of the word, not sexually or otherwise. If you truly believe what you have publically spoken, then I pity you... for you have pissed off an entire planetary population of women. You bettter institute the mandatory masturbation plan for yourself, because I doubt you'll be getting any action from any female ever again.
