Japanese Women Boycott Sex With Any Man Who Votes For Tokyo's "Menstruating Women Are Irrational" Governor

Tyler Durden's picture


It would appear hell hath no fury like a menstruating Japanese woman scorned... As The Daily Star reports, women in Tokyo are threatening a sex boycott against any man who votes for the front-runner in this weekend's critical Abenomics-vote-of-confidence gubernatorial election. The reason? Yoichi Masuzoe, a 65-year-old former political scientist, stated that it would not be proper to have women at the highest level of government because their menstrual cycle makes them irrational. All 16 candidates in the poll are men, with many of them aged in their 60s or older. But Masuzoe's comments about women, as well as other controversial remarks on taxing the elderly, have triggered a backlash.


Via The Daily Star,

Women in Tokyo are threatening a sex boycott against any man who votes for the front-runner in this weekend's gubernatorial election, in protest at his claim that menstruation makes women unfit for government.


A Twitter campaign group based in the capital which bills itself as "The association of women who will not have sex with men who vote for (Yoichi) Masuzoe," has garnered almost 3,000 followers since it launched last week.


Although the founders have not identified themselves, in their profile they said: "We have stood up to prevent Mr. Masuzoe, who makes such insulting remarks against women...We won't have sex with men who will vote for Mr. Masuzoe."




In 1989, he told a men's magazine that it would not be proper to have women at the highest level of government because their menstrual cycle makes them irrational.


"Women are not normal when they are having a period... You can't possibly let them make critical decisions about the country (during their period) such as whether or not to go to war," he said.


Masuzoe has the backing of the conservative ruling party of hawkish Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and is seen as likely to pip his nearest rival, former prime minister Moriyoshi Hosokawa who is standing on an anti-nuclear platform.


All 16 candidates in the poll are men, with many of them aged in their 60s or older.


But Masuzoe's comments about women, as well as other controversial remarks on taxing the elderly, have triggered a backlash.


Another website was launched on Wednesday by a group of women also seeking to prevent Masuzoe from becoming Tokyo governor -- that site has drawn 75,000 hits per day and 2,800 people have signed its petition.


"Masuzoe is an enemy of women...He doesn't love Japan. He loves only himself," said one comment on the site, by a woman who identified herself as Etsuko Sato.




There are very few women in senior political positions -- Abe's 19-member cabinet has only two -- and company boards are overwhelmingly male.

Of course, this will probably not be a big deal, since, as we noted previously, young Japanese people appear less and less interested in sex anyway.

As The Guardian reports, 45% of Japanese women aged 16-24 are "not interested in or despise sexual contact". More than a quarter of men feel the same way.

People are afraid of the harsh light of reality.

Its like that recent "controversy" where chicken and Watermelon were served to children for black history month...

Its true! Black people eat lots of fried chicken and watermelon!

Its also true that menstruating women are irrational!

Whats the big deal?

Males over 21 who own property, unencumbered by mortgage or lien, are the only people who should be allowed to vote.

Well, I am a woman and I don't vote. Years ago I recognized it as a farcical, ,pointless endeavor so I willingly gave it up. If you males think you can change the world voting be my guest. I also pay my husband $4000/ month to sleep with him and have no problem choosing my daily clothes. Perhaps you should give up spending you time with vacuous, dim witted women and you may find a few of us can come up with an occasional coherent thought.

That's great for you miffed, but you must know better than anyone how out-of-step you are with the majority of women.  I don't doubt for a minute you are exactly as you describe, because I have met women like you, but they stand out as unusual.  (In a good way, if I am not being clear)

I used to deny what many men here have claimed about modern women. Over time and many interactions have convinced me I must be wrong. I believe I am living in a strange pocket that has, somehow, escaped these modern influences. My close women friends ( ok, not numerous) are very much like I am. Hard working, skilled at farming and animal husbandry, and very beloved by their husbands, complementing them well. We all are country dwellers,used to dirt, and simple life styles. Most do work outside of the home but are not " career path" oriented. It's not that we are denied, we just have no interest in climbing corporate ladders.

Though I cannot prove it to anyone, I am who I profess to be. My husband was very concerned I had not developed a persona for this forum thinking anonymity was better than forthright candor. I considered this but decided I was pretending and suppressing too much in my life, in my job and in my simple day to day interactions and needed to be honest here. If that was met with hostility, conflict and derision I would accept it and be proud I was true to myself. I wish there were more women here that would echo my sentiments. We need strong women today but I don't mean in the way defined by modern feminist thought.

@Miffed - "We need strong women today"

There are plenty of us. It's just that most are too busy in paid jobs, taking care of kids, homes and gardens, others, etc...that they don't get noticed as much.

There are also plenty of shallow women around, just as there are lots of shallow men who are attracted to them. Go figure.

This is true. The weight of the world and it's demands tires me too. I look at my grandmother, who worked very hard in her day, probably had more time for contemplation than I do. I am fortunate my husband helps me more than the average woman with day to day chores because he often works from home while I have a 2 hour daily commute. I know women whose husbands do nothing for them and truly feel sorry for them.

Miffed, your self-revelations online may be more threatening and distressing to your husband than you realize:  more painful and more scary and troubling.  None of the guys on ZH will say that to you, since they care more about having something to arouse them, than about some other dude's psychological and emotional well-being.  And if they told some woman to not talk about sex, they would be called gay.

When one breaks a social norm (as you are by what you post), you might want to ask yourself why others follow that social norm.  Why don't other women post about their married sex lives?  Is it because they wouldn't find it fun?  Or is it for the sake of their husband's happiness?

Don't get me wrong:  I totally affirm anything you want to post here.  Go for it.  And maybe I am totally wrong about your husband.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I don't think any guys here up voted me based on some arousal on my part. I have posted who I am. I am no porn star. My looks are average but I am fit and healthy for my age. They have plenty of places to go elsewhere for better arousal than with me. I only post such things when it is in response to another's post. When someone says something to evoke a certain response from me this is what they will rarely get.

People love to evoke stereotypes and be provocative. I like to give counterpoint but I will never lie. This I promise. Many men here seem to think all women want to use them as money trees for a cushy life. Because I can provide myself as an example as a woman who does not do such things, I post my thoughts or experiences.

I do not talk in explicit detail about my sex life with any of my friends or work associates. May be some playful innuendos. This is an adult site. I have read some extremely explicit material here that I would be very uncomfortable posting. If this were a family site, I would NEVER post as I
do. And though I sometimes post on sexual matters I would never consider my posts pornographic but suggestive. Of course this is subjective and America, founded by Puritans, is very Puritanical in so many ways (overt and covert) so I could have offended many without intention.

If you are truly concerned about my husbands psychological welfare then I will ask him if this troubles him in any way. If you would like, I will ask him to respond to you about your concerns. Believe me, he is very honest, forthright and kind and will tell you the truth no matter if it were to rattle my view. So let me know.

Miffed, guys are aroused by anything.*  It is Mother Nature's gift to the perpetuation of the human race.  They are especially thrilled when a woman who is not a porn star or a sex worker, describes her sex life, even the tiniest aspect of it, even a trivial reference to it.  It is like a free show; always better than a paid one.  The guys here find your posts arousing; that is normal, and there is nothing wrong with that!!!!  The rise in their testosterone level makes them feel happy and whole.  On the other hand, the male partner of a woman in that setting, may not fare so well. I think you may not understand the male mind as well as you might; you seem surprisingly innocent to me.

I am definitely not saying that anything you have posted is in any way "inappropriate," not even slightly.  But that is different from what a husband may find scary and threatening and upsetting and even damaging.  I don't know your husband, but I do get the impression that although honest, he does not tell you everything he thinks, and he may not in this case.  That is normal in a marriage, and very normal in men.  As i said in a post farther down, women (per the studies) are very bad at telling if a man is lying; no doubt this has Darwinian advantages.  So I would take anything he said/wrote with a grain of salt, even though I would guess that he is more forthright than many men.

*I found it kind of funny in the past when you said that your husband denied finding some particular woman attractive, when you asked him.  Miffed, that is the most basic Polite Lie that men tell their wives and girlfriends.  Only a guy who is mentally deficient or a masochist would say otherwise.  They all learn by example or by one incident, that if they say that they find any other woman attractive, even slightly attractive, that their wife/girlfiend will never, every forget, and for the rest of the relationship will constantly be asking about it and talking about it, and wondering about women who look similar to that woman, and trying to look like that woman, and arguing with them re whether that woman really was attractive.  As I said, women are lousy at telling if a man is lying; if you're not familiar with this particular near-universal Polite Lie, you are exceptionally innocent.

A few months ago my husband and I were watching an old Star Trek episode. They had transported on a " bad" enterprise and were in different uniforms. My husband said " Dear God, I forgot how damn hot Uhura was, She's absolutely sexy hot!" She was in a bare midriff top. I said" Geez, I was thinking the same thing. That woman was so sexy and downright beautiful. She must have had quite a large male fan club. It's too bad there aren't such sexy black women portrayed on TV anymore." He says " You know my sweet you look close to her in figure from the waist up." I laugh. " Okay,may be a bit but damn I wish I had her butt!( I tend to be a bit hippy unfortunately and must keep trim to not be unbalanced) he laughs " You and the war on your butt. Some things never change. He kisses me. " Okay, so you aren't perfect by Hollywood standards but I love you and your damn sexy to me"

This is typical talk for us. He is very explicit about what he likes in a woman and is visually simulated by a voluptuous form. It's his type. We laugh he gets these Asian banners on ZH because that is NOT his style. Men are visually stimulated hence they respond to porn. When he was very young he did view it but now it's not a big thing to him. A few times we have used this as a sexual stimulation for fun. He does love boudoir and buy me many corsets he finds on the internet. He has a few pornographic pics of me but mostly boudoir shots he has taken over the years. I have seen him looking at them on his computer.

What I am trying to tell you is we are honest with each other in this area. If he pointed to a woman on the street and said she was sexy I wouldn't be offended and I would certainly never " hold that against him" forever. When I was a teenager it used to upset me because I thought he was saying he wanted to be with her and have sex with her. I was not confident and thought myself unattractive. Over the years I matured and am no longer concerned about such things. He is very lovingly devoted to me. People, even strangers, comment how amazed they are when they see use together, his love for me is palpable.

I don't think my husband has any psychological problems with what I post here. He is free to read and comment on them as he sees fit. But you do seem concerned. Why don't you collect a few of my sexual posts and show them to your husband and ask it they would upset him or if he feels I have done something wrong or damaging to the male psyche. I will accept his honest critique and appreciate the male perspective on this issue. Or do you think he wouldn't be honest and I would just get a Polite Lie? I may just be too innocent to comprehend such matters. ;-)

Oh, I've asked my husband his opinion of women who post about their marital personal lives online.  I don't think I'll repeat his opinon, since it is so different from yours and (it seems) your husband's; why be a spoilsport.  I will be honest enough to say that I think you are misreading your husband if you think he doesn't care.  But what do I know, and anyway your posts certainly cheer up a lot of lonely ZH dudes, and god knows that is a plus in this sorry world  :)

Well I couldn't resist taking a glance at the links, looks like bullshit to me. The author is trying to ascribe to evolutionary genetics what should more properly be ascribed to environmental factors.

Cultural Marxist values have undermined the culture and one of the intended goals is to disempower and marginalize males because women are much more open to socialist values than men. As higher education has become a primary transmission vector for Cultural Marxism, we must logically expect that women would succeed in that environment much more than men would.

Environment and evolution are interwoven. It is foolish to ascribe more influence for one over another. Though I do agree, women tend to flourish under Marxism where men stagnate. This always leads,ultimately, to a declining society when taken to conclusion. The key is balance where men and women's natural talents are celebrated and individuals are free to chose their lives, not indoctrinated to what they should be by the State. Of course this would mean a thinking population resistant to control. Understandably this is why polaristic societies based on radical feminism or patriarchal dominance are promulgated. You seem to confuse higher education with indoctrination. This is not necessarily true. I am proof of this.

"women tend to flourish under Marxism"

are you kidding ?  I was in the former USSR and China pre most favored nation/export powerhouse  era - - - no one flourished but the party insiders and they were predominately men.

"You seem to confuse higher education with indoctrination."

Perhaps I should has used the term socialism rather than the extreme form being Marxism. Women thrive in a atmosphere of safety ( real or not). This has its basis in biology. Socialism dictates the means of production are controlled and dispersed to all, guaranteeing everyone basic needs are met. I see men flourishing more in more capitalistic societies where competition fosters excellence. Taken to extremes each are detrimental.

Why do you think women stay in physically abusive relationships more than men? This is a warped sense of safety men cannot understand.

IMO the broad concepts are better stated as 'security' versus 'freedom'.

This is outside of political terms (which are usually a fraud & smoke screen for theft). Seemingly opposite 'isms' can look exactly the same when implemented at ground level.

At a biological level men are 'hunters'/'warriors' going out into the world to provide for the family and protect them. Women are gatherers and nuturers with the children/family securely at home. They often stress harmonious relationships over competition.

Socio-path/psycho-path 'leaders' under collectivism try to make the population dependent upon them in order to gain & maintain power. They seek to substitute themselves, 'the state', for provider/protector. This is an illusion since vital real resources must be stolen from that population to later redistribute it . . . but only after the 'leaders' have stolen their cut. Usually that cut increases in proportion over time till the society collapses. This has happened throughout human history.

Of course, at an individual level everyone is unique. Ive known some damned adventureous women who weren't particularly interested in 'security' and several men who seemed to prefer it over 'freedom'.

I did a speed read of the first link and it suggested increased testosterone levels in females as evolutionary in nature. Evolutionary effects don't occur over such short time periods as decades.

If there are any effects on the human population, it seems to me that increased exposure to chemicals in the environment should be looked at first.  Such chemicals are in our foods and in their packaging.  The link didn't look at that aspect at all.  Given the source, that doesn't surprise me.

Genetic factors can NEVER act as quickly as environmental factors, across a broad population. If you are examining effects on hundreds of millions of people over a few generations, there is no fucking way that genetics can account for even a fraction of the colossal changes that have wracked western society in this century.

If epigenetics means changes in gene expression (instead of changes in DNA), then I'm still not buying it. We are talking about changes in human behavior brought indoctrination and social programming. Ascribing any of that to some kind of biochemical activity is misguided, silly, and pointless.

Indoctrination and social programming can NEVER trump biology. Especially when challenged in severe conditions. No amount of training can manifest an entire D day invasion on Normandy beach with only females. I don't care how well you indoctrinate. The social situation that we are observing today is simply a construct. A house of cards that will fall with a slight vibration. That it is still standing is a miracle and evidence it is not being severely challenged.

Epigenetics can explain many subtle manifestations in a population. Increased testosterone due to selective pressures may be evident. However, to jump to the conclusion this in itself is explanatory for the social changes in women's roles today is false and I do not think this is what he intended. If anything, it may explain the reverse. This rise in testosterone may have influences in future progeny. As a theory I will consider this.

The crown jewel of human intellectual evolution is, yes, the Asperger's/engineer's disorder brain. The socializing brain is not the basis of the STEM fields, the systemizing Asperger's brain is, and that is related to testosterone levels.

I think that Goldilocks T levels at appropriate developmental times, male or female, increases the chance of a systemizing brain that can contribute to an increasingly technological civilization. It is plausible that variations in developmental T levels also lead to individualism and the Freedom Culture. Both the STEM fields and the liberty movement are male dominated.

His point is that if T levels increase, males will suffer intellectually - more knuckle-draggers - and females will benefit - more scientists.

Camille Paglia stated something like that if mankind had to rely on women for technology we would still be living in grass huts.

Perhaps that's because when women were able to contribute to technology, men became even more brutish.

Skills at all levels are needed. Come across an auto accident with people bleeding, and you better know how to hands on stablize them before they die. If your car breaks down, it'd be a good idea to be able to fix it well enough to get to the next service station. (With all the electronics in cars nowadays its not as easy to repair them yourself, and not a bad argument for having at least one 'old style' car or pick-up if you can swing it.) If the power goes out for a few days, its a good idea to know how to deal with that - especially when temps are below zero at night.

At the same time, its a very good idea to know the nature of money and the banking and political system. Two thirds of the population are not 'Big Picture', long term thinking types. They are 'practical' and 'hands on' and 'traditonal values, follow the rules' types.  And they wonder why nothing ever changes after they vote in 'their guy' demorepublicrap in the last election. - -Such people end up manipulated by the liar politicians and banksters.

Being able to do what's needed with your own two hands is vitally important. Your life may depend upon it.  -- And so is seeing and thinking about the Big Picture. Your kids and grandkids lives & futures depend upon it.

Build skills at all levels and share them with others.

@Dr.Sandi – I was trying to decide to which comment I was going to attach my very rational observation, and yours seems perfect.

It was obvious to me a long time ago that the MALE EQIVALENT to the 3 days of hormonal swings menstruating  females experience is their libido in general!  Which means they have the opportunity to leave their brains at the curb……oh, 365 days a year!  And to engage in some mighty destruction if they really decide to mentally check-out while the other brain is “thinking”.


You know, like this partial list – Eliot Spitzer, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton, recent mayor of San Diego, Arnold Schwarzenegger,  Larry Craig, Jerry Sandusky plus all of the pedophile priests and the business men (we never hear about) who bring home diseases to their wives……the list goes on ad infinitum! Yep, there's some enviable rationality for you.

I've always been amazed at this claim about women "on their period". MEN are so obviously HORMONE-DRIVEN ALL THE TIME....31 days a month ....war-obsessed, sex-obsessed, and obsessed with this mock-serious behaviour of jostling balls around and fighting over them (i.e. sports). How any rational society can let men make decisions - ? The tragic destruction of war, the enviornmental destruction of overpopulation...Japanese minister's comments are comedic.

What really bugs me is when women politicians and women drivers do the same crazy things that I expect from guys. Not to dis guys, but we have a system where the most extreme testosterone-driven males climb all over each other to grasp power and turn the world into an insane asylum.
