Oh dear!

EDIT: That's not good but any game that has any form of content creation is always very very difficult to police, I definitely don't agree with it being removed and the person being suspended for 9 hours but Nintendo obviously have a zero tolerance policy for anything deemed to be political. And again because its so hard to police this sort of thing a lot of more inappropriate things will get through or be missed.

Fuck's sake Nintendo. I get taking down the crude stages featuring Mario with a big floppy tadger and whatnot - as hilarious as that is, gotta protect the kids - but taking down the stage linked in the article is a poor show indeed. Thumbs Down...

Sigh. We all love Nintendo, but at the end of the day it's another big company, and therefore is going to make shoddy decisions to avoid hurting its bottom line/causing controversy. A shame, but sadly not unexpected.

I'm going to come across as really ignorant here, so Drunka: what's the Japanese attitude compared to trans rights, compared to the UK? (Not the US, fuck the US.) I know they're more socially conservative in some ways, but more liberal than others. Just wondering where the Japanese treatment of transgender people lies.

I'm not really qualified to answer this, but I'd imagine it isn't great. Anyone who deviates from the norm is treated pretty crappily here to be honest.

I might be wrong isn't even things disabled access is pretty much non-existent in places that if that's so then can only imagine LGBT things being worse.

Disabled access is pretty bad, but then Japanese healthcare is pretty amazing so maybe people with disabilities are just treated better on an individual level?

I wasn't sure whether the LGB part might actually be pretty good in Japan? Hence my question really. It seems to be more unashamedly in the public eye than out West, but I think I recall someone saying that it's merely fetishised, not respected.
