Baby steps.

Come on, Japan. Pick up the pace.

Partnership certificate programs aren't new in Japan, but I guess the terminology in this particular case (recognizing the partner as "unregistered husband") is new.

I think r4 means いい加減 に しなさい.

大人になってください doesn't make any sense in Japanese.

I'd say that Western influences (including colonially introduced European criminal codes) were much more damaging for gay rights in East and Southeast Asia.

Japan is, by and large, indifferent to The Gays. No real tradition of homophobia.

The couple is cute, OP. Good for them. But the news anchor in the clip that discussed it? His voice is nails on a blackboard.
