Tokyo Olympics creative head Hiroshi Sasaki said he has resigned after making a derogatory comment about a female Japanese entertainer, in the latest controversy over insensitive remarks towards women to hit Games organisers.
I don't experience it myself in Japan, as a man, but I have no doubt the sexism in this country runs as deeply as the West. The difference is that that there just hasn't been a strong feminism movement to let them know how harmful their thinking is. Not the comment, but the fact that their mind goes to these places with out effort. There is rot in the foundation.
