Pictured above (left to right): a male, a female.
In a victory for biology supremacists the world over, Japan has mostly gotten the question of what makes a man a man and a woman a woman factually correct. In the 21st century, that is no mean feat.
Much like everyone in the entire world not too long ago, Japan has rediscovered the basic biological fact that there are two genders. One of them possesses a penis, the other a vagina. For some reason, this has become very confusing to westerners in recent years. The weird sigil-looking thing I decided was my gender when I started writing this sentence, in addition to obviously being mutaregender, musicgender, witchgender and xenogender simultaneously, doesn’t fly in Japan. And no, I did not make up any of those “genders.”
Back in my day, even in public school, we knew that the presence of XY chromosomes made a human male. That is almost the case here, but not quite. After years of bitching from some dude who cut his dick off and starting calling himself Aya when running for office, Japan relented and will change the sex in the family registry after genital mutilation surgery has been completed.
While seeing female on government documentation no longer guarantees you dealing with a genuine XX female in Japan, at the very least traps are not legally recognized, and that is more than you can say for any of the Fatherlands.
This demonstrates the danger of having only a few Jews in influential media positions, as has been the case in Japan for some time. Call me crazy, but I don’t see Minamoto no Yoshitsune or Showa Tenno going for this.
