(Submitter's note: Lightly edited to remove references to links)

What if you heard a commercial that used language like this (words in brackets indicate a paraphrase to heighten your suspense!):

There’s nothing good about [ __________ ]. They don’t [engage in beneficial activities]. All they do is [cause a specific problem]. That’s their sole contribution to mankind.

And that’s why, they have to die.

It’s that simple. You cannot rehabilitate [ __________ ]. You have to kill him, his little friends and the [reproductive capacities of “his” community].

What you need is a quick, easy extermination plan. [One simple step] and you’re done. And here’s the really good part: everybody dies!

And while there is joy in all creatures living in harmony, it’s nothing compared to killing [ __________ ]. Now, that’s a rush.

What would you think filled in the blanks? What would you think of the language? What would it remind you of?

Don't worry; this was just the style of a fire-ant-killer commercial I heard yesterday. Still, it bothered me so much that I came home and looked it up to see what the hell was creeping me out.

This commercial is supposed to be funny, but in talking about exterminating fire ants, it relies on language and imagery used throughout history to talk about the extermination of people, as well. Think what you will about my fascination with language and animals-as-stand-ins-for-humans in media, but really, how many pest extermination spots have you heard delve into the intrinsic worthlessness of pests? Annoyance and inconvenience, sure. But no-contribution-to-"mankind?" I don't run across that everyday.

I'm also hearing the commercial in a historical context as well, I suppose. I've talked previously about how media outlets reinforce connections made between people of color, particularly immigrants, and vermin/pests. Late 19th/early 20th century cartoons often portrayed Chinese Americans as living with/eating/making pets of rats and the queues of men of Chinese descent were drawn to look like rats' tails. Another example is the racist comparison of people of Mexican descent to cockroaches. And think about the ways we talk about immigration, in terms of "swarms" and "invasions." [...]

Below is an actual transcription[...]:

There’s nothing good about fire ants. They don’t pollinate your roses, they don’t make cute little sounds when they rub their legs together. All they do is build a big mound in your yard and bite the hell out of anyone who gets near it. That’s their sole contribution to mankind.

And that’s why, they have to die.

It’s that simple. You cannot rehabilitate a fire ant. You have to kill him, his little red friends and that big fat queen down there making more fire ants.

What you need is Orthene Fire Ant Killer from Ortho. You put one tablespoon of Orthene over the mound and you’re done. You don’t even water it in. The worker ants track it back into the mound. And here’s the really good part: everybody dies, even the queen!

And while there is joy in all creatures living in harmony, it’s nothing compared to killing fire ants. Now, that’s a rush.

Orthene Fire Ant Killer from Ortho. Guaranteed to kick fire ant butt.

Now, do I think the Ortho people are operating from the same place as this turn-of-the-century company?

(Pictured: an old advertisement depicting a stereotyped Chinese man eating rats)

No. I'm just saying that language matters. Ortho's advertising people might not even be able to pinpoint what made them write the ad in this style, but for me, the cultural influences seemed obvious.

Actually if you say Jesus is not the son of God you are bearing false witness,. Islam teaches God has no son and does not begot . How you could think you are denying him is by saying he is i do not know why you would think that. For God so loved the world that he sent [ his only begotten son], that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. is this not clear ?? Any religion that teaches Jesus is not the son of God is anti christ !! For if anyone preach a different gospel than what we have preached to you he is ?????? now ask yourself who is it that preaches a different truth than the disciples of Christ taught ??? Which religion teaches that Jesus was not crucified and is not the son of God, this is anti christ there is no other way to say it,

Quote# 142177

I am just an imperfect Christian man who loves all of his family.

Based on 4 thousand years of Judeo-Christian and scientific and sociology-cultural history, and based on my Christian Faith in the Holy, inspired, infallible, eternal Word of God, I believe several things.

1. A person’s sex is his or her gender.
2. God does not put a female into a male’s body. There is no proof to the otherwise. None. Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
3. Due to the Fall of sinful man (males and females) from Adam and Eve, we all sin and fall short of the glory of God. Roman’s 3:23.

4. I was born with a freshly sin-pull toward lust and covetousness. It is every man’s battle. Now, again due to sinfulness and total depravity, some people have a yearning /lust / covetousness for people of the same sex/gender. Some call this homosexuality. It needs to be acknowledged, confessed and repented from just like I have had to acknowledge, confess, and repent from those things that pull me into sin practice or bondage.

One is not worse than the other.
If one craves sensual/ sexual intimacy with one of the same sex/gender, as hard as this sounds, they will need to remain Celibate for the rest of their life. God does and can work a work of healing and grace in one who struggles. I know of one. He now is married to a female and they have children. He wanted what God wants more than what he wanted. He repented and called on Jesus to save him and help him be the man God wanted him to be.

5. I believe in my heart of hearts that those who are in the LGBT world may struggle with some type of mental confusion due to various stressors. However, ultimately, I believe they need to repent of all things not Scriptural and call on Jesus and receive Him to be Lord and Savior. Only He has the loving power and strength to affect change and Spirit-directed transformation. Christ forming in them... the Hope of glory.

My beliefs and convictions on this are what Scripture teaches. Romans 1, 1Corinthians 6, and many other passages confirm this. Sodom and Gomorrah confirm this.

6. If a person says they are a born again Christian but give the international sign of displeasure to God and His Word, they cannot be Saved. No way.

7. Now if a soul is not saved, not a Christian, then tragically, if they persist in rebelling against the Lord who wants to forgive and save them, they will die and will spend an eternity in everlasting torment. They eventually will be thrown into the Lake of Fire for all eternity!

Now you now know why I boldly share the Gospel and the Truth of God’s Holy Word to which we must answer to.

Feel free to share this.

Quote# 142176

[OP of "Maduro Under Siege! Bank of England Confiscates Venezuelan Gold Reserves!"]

An alternative headline could read: “Judea Declares War on Venezuela!”


The noose is tightening around Venezuela.

Funny enough, Israel doesn’t want to play ball yet.


What makes this story even more interesting is the little-known tidbit that Maduro himself is Jewish. His grandparents were Sephardic Jews who converted – at least that’s what he says. He might just be saying that to make Mossad hesitate, who knows.

[Link to "I don't know who's jewing who anymore"]

One thing seems certain though: everyone in power in the West seems to be unanimous in demanding that Maduro be overthrown.

Which begs the question: why?

I’m not sure yet myself what the real reasons at play here are. It feels like Venezuela is just the only country left that the US can wallop without suffering any real casualties or consequences. There’s that explanation and then the whole “war for oil” thing plus the military industrial complex demanding fresh wars.

One thing is for sure: the official reasons that are given make no sense.

Pompeo’s speech at the UNSC was a blast to the past, a return to Bush-era rhetoric: “Either you’re with us, or you’re evil.”

Nearly two decades later, and absolutely nothing has changed.

There are more countries than not in the Third World suffering from hunger and a mismanaged economy. The Establishment shills seem content enough to allow them to wallow in their own poverty though. Only Venezuela keeps Pompeo tossing and turning at night worrying about the humanitarian situation there.

And the worst part is that it’s all so contrived and insulting.

Because they actually expect you to believe and parrot the official line that this whole thing is about saving Venezuelan children from hunger. If they dropped the faux humanitarian language, it would all be so much less demeaning and exasperating for the American people. Just think: if they rationally stated the case for why a foreign power was a threat to our own, would peoples have such seething disgust for America’s role in the world?

I think people would feel a lot better about the situation.

It’s one thing to pick a fight and lose. It’s another to be destroyed and told that it was for your own good. And quite another when everyone has to listen to Neocons like Pompeo blather on about muh values and muh babies.

A new castration plan

The plan to get Art to come to America to castrate me and then for me to claim that a wild animal did it, had problems. It would be very unlikely that an animal specifically attacked and bit off my balls. To make it believable, I would have to also have other wounds to my body, but I am not an expert at giving myself wounds without risking breaking arteries or vains that could cause severe blood loss.

So perhaps Art should fashion coyote jaws out of clay, with the sharp teeth of coyotes. I live in a part of America that has lots of coyotes so it would be believable that a coyote attacked me.. He can use the jaws to press into parts of my body to create a whole ton of bite marks.

(later posts from same thread)
I really do want to be castrated because I am heterosexual and attracted to women in trousers especially jeans but not sexual enough that I think I am capable of normal sex because I get more turned on by women in trousers then naked women. To reproduce, I would have to masterbate to my wife in trousers before sticking my penis into her vagina. If I can’t be normally sexual, I might as well be asexual.


Don't think you can bait me, your story is way to wild and inconsistent.

It is not wild. I am cursed with such an extreme clothing fetish, that I am not sure if I am capable of normal sex. I did a google image search for naked women, seeing a bunch of pictures, and I am not getting an errection by them. So unless my fetish can actually be treated, I don’t see how I can have normal sex with a wife.

So have some abnormal sex with a wife! Find one who's either into the same kind of thing or at least is willing to indulge you in it, and have some fun.

But I want to use sex for it’s biological purpose of procreation meaning that the sex would have to involve eventually ejaculating semen into her vagina. And the chances of finding a conservative Anglican woman willing to indulge in it is very unlikely.


I am for real. I am trying to figure out ways I can actually get myself castrated because my jean fetish is making me miserable because I doubt that I could find a conservative Anglican wife that would tolerate having sex involving getting turned on by her in jeans.

Since the European countries will probably go to war when the true heirs to England, Ireland, Normandy, and the Two Sicilies gain their rightful thrones, they will need to be conquered. Therefore the King of England and the Two Sicilies and, Duke of Normandy will also become Holy Roman Emperor ruling over the other European Kingdoms.

The Neo Holy Roman Empire will then go to war with Turkey and the other Arab Muslim nations in the Middle East to liberate Constantinople and the persecuted Christians and will gradually conquer the Levant and the Arabian Penninsula. It can achieve it by allying with Israel but since the Holy Land of Israel was rightful Christian Land before the Muslims conquered it, the Neo Holy Roman Empire will then conquer Israel to bring the Holy Land back into Christian hands which was the intent of the Crusaders.

Bearded Muslim man (labelled "Governor") is flanked by a blonde smiling woman on his right and a nondescript man on his left, both with bubbles swimming around their heads presumably to suggest stupidity.
Bearded man: "Who knew this contest would be this easy? We shall rule you dogs with a fist of iron."

Episode: "Antichrist at the Door."

Closer and closer. They have no idea.

You said it, LC. I'm surprised to wake up every day at this point. Who'd ever think our own government (dims) would put communist Russia to shame?

I have never been ashamed to be an American, even now I can't say I am, but I am ashamed of the ignorant, anti-American, communist alt-left trolls that are haunting America, freedom, our president and our great nation. They need to repent and seek Jesus Christ.
I continue to pray for our country, its leadership-including our president and his family and us.

The “Don’t have children to help the environment” movement really seems to be taking off in France. I wrote one article about it before and thought it was just a curious foible, an amusing, if slightly crazed, example of leftist degeneracy. Then I mentioned it again was supported by a prominent politician.

But here, now, we have people not just choosing not to have children, but actually undergoing operations that will sterilise them for life – all to “help the environment”. Even if they escape their brainwashing at some point in future, it will be too late. Millions of years of evolutionary struggle end with their folly. Of course only white people are susceptible to these kinds of appeals, based on altruism. It becomes another weapon in the arsenal of white genocide.

Interesting how some "open minded" evolutionist audio bombed the video in the OP of this thread.

It's what people resort to when they cannot refute the point being made.

How many times are we told by evolutionists that black holes result from the compacting of stars many times larger than our sun into the size of a basketball?

The galaxy and the universe are far larger than the biggest star...

So we are supposed to believe that simply because everything is fanning out across the universe that it all started at a single small point?

This is where the fairy tale audio bomb needs to be!

Grab two handfulls of sand. Throw it up into the air and watch it scatter!

Now according to evolutionists... this is evidence that the sand you flung into the air started at an infinitesimally small point (smaller than one of the grains of sand) and everythi8ng else came from it...

Sadly they call this science.

Even sadder, they call what they force on everyone "education."

Quote# 141985

The writers of the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation had no training in astronomy or astrophysics. Neither did they know about “red giant stars”. That does not change any prophecy about the resurrection, matters of faith, or current science.

What the Bible does say is that the Lord God will make a new heaven and a new earth as a forever dwelling for all the faithful. Since God made our existing sun and solar system and the entire universe in six days, Almighty God has the capacity to make anything go away, dissolve the universe, and design a world fit for eternity at the speed of divine thought.

Secondly, the light that will illuminate heaven will be the divine light from the very glory of Jesus Christ in his divine state. There will not be a need for the sun or the solar system in the new earth and new heavens [all the stellar universe]. Jesus has been creating places for all believers now for at least two thousand years nearly. I cannot imagine the detail and particulars Jesus has in mind. So I am not worried about our Sun going to Red Giant status.

Jesus did promise to return on the Last Day of human history, resurrect all the dead both righteous and the wicked, change the living at the time of His return in the blink of an eye, judge every person from all of human history fairly, separate [actually throw them] the wicked into a lake of fire forever, and then celebrate with all the faithful in our new eternal home!

The universe only appears to be billions of years old because of the current speed of light. Based on Genesis 1, originally…. light could have had unlimited light speed. This would account for God saying,” let there be light”. Then when God separated light from darkness, He changed the speed of light to the current speed. This secondary change then made the universe seem much older.

Gen 1: 1 says that in the beginning God created space [universe, Hebrew word used was heaven] and matter [Hebrew word used was earth]. Therefore, I would not ascribe any limitation to Almighty God.

But I would note that God foretells literally melting this earth with fire in the book of Peter as a form of judgement. He destroyed the earth once with water in the flood. He promised not to repeat that action. The next time, He will use fire. Perhaps God will cause the Sun to go into supernova mode at that time. Who knows.

Those who are among the faithful will be with Jesus in that New Earth and New Heaven in Revelation.

Quote# 141971

The French leftist site Mediapart has published an article calling for heterosexuality to be banned.

Given that heterosexuality is not a sexual orientation, but a system of domination generating and nourishing sexism, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia and other oppressions such as racism, ableism or classism;

Given that heterosexuality meant the abandonment of gays, bis and trans to AIDS, indifference to their death, the refusal to undertaken targeted prevention campaigns, the censorship of campaigns and the legitimation of the censors, waiting to grant rights;

Given that heterosexuality is a denialism [“négationnisme”, a word that signifies Holocaust Denial in French], rewriting the history of struggles to show kindly, brave heterosexuals fighting for the rights of minorities when they didn’t give a damn about them until we rubbed their noses in the horrors they created or caused to be created;

Given that heterosexuality, in France, is a woman dying every three days at the hands of her female companion, the refusal to speak of “feminicides”: it is also the resultant higher rate of suicide among young LGBT, a culture of rape and its impunity;

it is urgent that heterosexuality be banned.

There’s a lot more in a similar vein, too, but I won’t bother translating it all.

It’s a classic example of the pathologisation of normality within our civilisation.

The bio of the author, Mérôme Jardin, says he was a member of Act Up-Paris (1998-2013) [a gay campaigning group] and is a member of the CCIF [Collective Against Islamophobia], which is hilarious since I don’t think this
guy will last long after the Muslim takeover of France.

Why do the radicalized leftists harbor so much hate?

Where does such hate come from? This sort of hate seems demonic...and emanating from the pits of hell. This is no laughing matter. This hate is serious. I thought liberals where supposed to be somewhat compassionate and open minded. They hate Trump, veterans, white people, Christedom and etc. I know Trump is a little rough around the edges and eccentric... But he is still our president and deserves respect. I mean liberal news outlets like MSNBC and CNN literally spend 24 hours bashing Trump. That's the only news they provide. Period. It's sickening. The hate is not emanating from the right it's coming solely from the left. God bless Trump and I wish him all the success in the world.

odanny: Bless your heart.

ambient: And were you so concerned about it during the Obama years? And no, Trump doesn't deserve respect. His disrespects the Office, he disrespects his opposition, he disrespects our allies. About the only thing he does is spew toxic garbage on Twitter. He acts more like ehat I'd expect from an inebriated hillbilly than the President of the United States. You want to get respect, start by earning it and giving respect.

sickofnyc: Rough around the edges? . The grifter-in-thief has stolen from fellow Americans and screwed them over for his entire adjust life. He's also a traitor. Are you making a joke with this tripe you just posted or are you posting from The Kremlin?

The left revels in this hate. They thrive on it. They see nothing wrong with harboring such hate. Very strange. This sort of hate is exactly what the Devil subsists on and approves of. Dark and unhealthy on a spiritual level.

ambient: Sorry, that doesn't make your idiot less of an idiot.

The radicalized left cannot let go of their hate. It is like a drug to them. An addiction. They seem brainwashed by MSNBC and CNN. They seem riddled with white guilt. They want wide open borders... They want to see America turn into a Guatemala like, 3rd world country..they put illegal immigrants first before homeless American citizens and homeless veterans. Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

Just by the responses on this thread [Submitter's note: all quoted above] it is shocking.... The hate coming from the hearts and minds of the left. What's really scary is that the leftists want war with Russia.

Pope Joan is not included in the canonical list of Popes!!

The name Joan is the female transliteration of John, Giovanna in Italian, and Juana in Spanish.

Pope Joan was elected to the Papacy in the year 853.

She reigned for 2 years until her disguise was blown when she gave birth during a procession.

Saint Martin Luther, in his Table Talk, states that he saw a commemorative statue of Pope Joan when he visited Roma in 1510:

In Rome, in a public square, there is a stone monument to commemorate the pope who was really a woman and gave birth to a child on that very spot. I have seen the stone myself, and I find it astonishing that the popes permit it to exist. (Luther, Table Talk, p.133).

Folks, the following is an excerpt from a 2017 story in the Washington Blade, a newspaper for homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders in the nation’s capital, regarding then-State Department spokesman and current Trump nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert.

Pro-LGBTQ activism and advocacy was a fixture of the Obama years, and social conservatives hoped it would stop under President Trump. Yet it persists, usually through official recognition of special LGBTQ activist “days” like this. Surely there are deep divisions within Trump’s foreign policy team, which by definition includes many Obama holdovers, on whether and how strongly the United States should engage in pro-homosexual/-bisexual/-transgender advocacy of this sort.

When I first heard of Nauert’s nomination, all I could think of was how bizarre it is that Nauert, just years from being a Fox News persona, would likely hold the same position as the esteemed Jeane Kirkpatrick, Reagan’s steely UN ambassador, who played a pivotal role in facing down Soviet aggression and ultimately the fall of Soviet communism. Try as I might, I cannot imagine Kirkpatrick donning purple and hawking a pro-homosexual “Spirit Day.” Let’s just leave it at that. (The event is organized by the anti-Christian LGBTQ leftist group GLAAD.)

If Nauert becomes one of the world’s most prominent international “gay/trans rights” advocates, it would be a significant betrayal of Trump’s electoral mandate and a great victory for the powerful leftist social forces pushing American-style immorality on the world.

[ quote from 2015 on a 14 year old molesting his 5 year old siblings ]

I have to say I find this histerical mob-frenzy against a horney 14 year old who made a stupid mistake 12 years ago disgusting.

He was 14 FFS, a child, and he's being attacked for it now so viciously only because he's a prominent christian. And last time I looked, being a christian wasn't a crime.

This is nasty, nasty stuff, and it gives athiests a bad reputation. Not in my name thanks!

As for the post, as a parent of two girls and a victim of childhood sexual abuse I can confidently say that if I had a son who admitted to touching one of them I'd be devistated and I don't know what I'd do. But I do know I'd still love him, and bringing in the authorities would probably be the last thing I would do, and then only as a last resort if I believed his behaviour could not otherwise be controlled.

Frankly, the way the Duggar's dealt with it seems to me to be well within the boundaries of what a reasonable parent might have done. I personally would have ensured the councelling was far more professional, but in general terms they dealt with an incredibly difficult situation, and to all appearences seem to have done so successfully.

Woe unto all liars! You couldn't pay me a billion dollars to teach the blatant lies of evolution to anyone! God knows that I mean that! Evolution is such an obvious hoax! These fake NASA scientists tell us that the earth and moon came from two rocks crashing into each other! That is a complete and wicked denial of the Holy Bible! It's also ludicrous! Only an idiot, or a very wicked person, could embrace such a bizarre and non-plausible hypothesis! It makes perfect sense that a divine God created the universe, especially in lieu of the Holy Bible which God has authored and given to us, to teach us these precious truths. Theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking (1942-2018), is now burning in Hell forever, sadly, because he died in his sins without the dear Savior (John 8:24; Revelation 20:15; John 3:36). Evolution is a lie created by the Devil, to blind men's minds from seeing the glorious light of the Gospel, lest they be saved (2nd Corinthians 4:3-4).

Anyone who teaches evolution ought to be ashamed! It's not science, not in the least. The bogus claims of evolutionists are not testable, repeatable nor verifiable in a scientific laboratory nor in nature. It's bad science at best! True science studies what already exists, like the wonderful creation around us. Two rocks colliding couldn't have produced such grand beauty. A “BIG BANG” billions of years ago couldn't have evolved into the awesome universe as we know it today!

The righteous moral nature of the Holy Scriptures (Romans 7:12), and the unrighteous immoral nature of the world in which we live (1st John 5:19), is further conclusive evidence that Creation is true in the Holy Bible. Psalms 145:17, “The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.” Romans 7:12, “Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.” People who love to live in their sins, often hate God and His Holy Word (Romans 1:28)! Any honest person who has read the King James Bible, knows that it is God's inspired Word; and any thinking person with an honest heart knows that the claims of evolution are a lie! If humans came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? Were some of the monkeys retarded? The Bible teaches that the flesh of man is man, and the flesh of animals is another. Humans are not animals, as wicked evolutionists allege. I thank and praise God that I know THE TRUTH about Creation, and am not brainwashed or deceived by Satan to believe the obvious lies of evolution!

(in response to story "Judge Strikes Down Iowa Heartbeat Law, Says Abortion Can’t Be Banned When ‘Potential Life’ Not Yet ‘Viable’"

This is a good example of simple and settled science being denied by the judiciary.

It is, and has been for decades, settled science that, at human conception, a new human organism comes into existence.

To call such life "potential life" is to directly contradict known and uncontroversial science.

Perhaps the judge never had a talk with his parents about how babies are made?

(submitter's note: printed in a theoretically secular newspaper)

Only Christ can save us
By Patsy Lambert - Contributing Columnist

We should never lose sight of the fact that we are saved by our faith in Christ, not by our good deeds.

Only Christ can save us. He was the sinless Son of God who took all our sins upon Himself when He died on the cross.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2: 8-10.

God wants us to present our whole life to Him. We should strive to be pleasing to the Lord and do things that will bring glory and honor to Him.

"And Thou Shall Love The Lord Thy God With All Thy Heart, and With All Thy Soul, And With All Thy Mind, And With All Thy Strength: this is the first commandment." Mark 12:30.

When we are truly saved Christ will make a difference in our life.

Only Christ can save us.

Israel being allowed to participate in Eurovision every year, despite being an alleged “Jewish state” that’s not even in Europe (there are Jews of all races), is a testament to their commitment to being a white supremacist nation.

Japan court upholds sterilization to register gender change

Human rights and LGBT activists on Friday denounced a ruling by Japan’s Supreme Court upholding a law that effectively requires transgender people to be sterilized before they can have their gender changed on official documents.

The court said the law is constitutional because it was meant to reduce confusion in families and society. But it acknowledged that it restricts freedom and could become out of step with changing social values.

The 2004 law states that people wishing to register a gender change must have their original reproductive organs, including testes or ovaries, removed and have a body that “appears to have parts that resemble the genital organs” of the gender they want to register.

More than 7,800 Japanese have had their genders officially changed, according to Justice Ministry statistics cited by public broadcaster NHK.

The unanimous decision by a four-judge panel, published Thursday, rejected an appeal by Takakito Usui, a transgender man who said forced sterilization violates the right to self-determination and is unconstitutional.

Usui, 45, appealed to the top court after he unsuccessfully requested that lower courts grant him legal recognition as male without having his female reproductive glands surgically removed.

Despite the unanimous decision, presiding justice Mamoru Miura joined another justice in saying that while the law may not violate the constitution, “doubts are undeniably emerging,” according to Usui’s lawyer, Tomoyasu Oyama.

The two judges proposed regular reviews of the law and appropriate measures “from the viewpoint of respect for personality and individuality,” according to Japanese media reports.

Japan is one of many countries with a sterilization requirement. In 2017, the European Court of Human Rights said 22 of the countries under its jurisdiction still required sterilization as part of a legal gender change, and it ordered them to end the practice.

Maria Sjodin, deputy executive director of OutRight Action International, which monitors LGBT rights issues worldwide, said she was unsure if all 22 of those countries have fully implemented the court’s order. She noted that Sweden, which did away with the requirement in 2013, later became the first country to pay damages to anyone forced to undergo sterilization as a requirement for gender change.

The Japanese Supreme Court decision ends Usui’s legal battle, but he and his lawyer said the opinions in the ruling left them with hope.

“I think the ruling could lead to a next step,” Usui told a news conference.

Human Rights Watch said the Supreme Court ruling was “incompatible with international human rights standards, goes against the times and deviates far from best global practices.” The New York-based group said the ruling tolerates grave human rights violations against transgender people.

The ruling was also criticized by Japan’s LGBT community.

A transgender activist and writer, Tomato Hatakeno, tweeted that the decision shows that society’s interests still come before an individual’s right to freedom regarding one’s body.

“The ruling suggests that reproductive health is not recognized as a basic human right,” she said.

There is a growing awareness of sexual diversity in Japan, but it is often superficial and generally limited to the entertainment industry. In a country where pressure for conformity is strong, many gay people hide their sexuality even from their families because of a fear of prejudice at home, school or work. Obstacles remain high for transgender people.

Japan does not legally recognize same-sex marriages. As LGBT rights awareness has gradually grown in recent years, some municipalities have begun issuing partnership certificates to ease problems in renting apartments and other areas, but they are not legally binding.

Lawmakers in the conservative ruling party have repeatedly come under fire for making discriminatory remarks about LGBT people. Earlier this year, Katsuei Hirasawa, a veteran lawmaker, was widely criticized for saying that “a nation would collapse” if everyone became LGBT. Last year, another ruling party lawmaker, Mio Sugita, was condemned after saying in a magazine that the government shouldn’t use tax money for LGBT rights because same-sex couples aren’t “productive.”

Separately, more than a dozen people with disabilities have filed lawsuits against Japan’s government for having been sterilized against their will under a 1948 Eugenics Protection Law that was in effect until 1996.

At least 16,500 people were sterilized without consent under the law, which allowed doctors to sterilize people with disabilities and was designed to “prevent the birth of poor-quality descendants.” Some orphans were also sterilized.

The government has maintained the sterilizations were legal.
