Ishihara backs sexist schooling

(Mainichi / Apr 10)

Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara has slammed gender free education policies, labeling ... their advocates of being "sorry people with weakened sensibilities."
...."Kimigayo," the national anthem, and the Hinomaru Rising Sun flag "present us with a great opportunity to consider our ultimate responsibilities in a human society where membership of a state or a race is inevitable,"
...."(A kamikaze pilot) headed for battle would be given a quiet farewell off away from others by a woman he loved, but whose hand he had never even held. And he would go in the belief that he was sacrificing his own life for the sake of someone of the same age but the opposite sex," Ishihara told the throng. "We're implementing grotesque education policies that don't even take into consideration such relations between a man and a woman."

Over the years I've heard Gov Blinky describing being strafed by bombers during the Tokyo bombing. He also whines about having his icecream cone knocked down by GIs in the street after the war. These two events he recounts on TV from time to time with a livid red face. You can tell he wants some kind of great revenge.

I used to know who a lady who went to grade school with Ishihara. She told me he might have imagined both events since their school where he claimed to have been strafed was never hit by anthing but was on the low flight path for bombing runs. Likewise, she thinks he may have been laughed at by GIs for being a blinky nervious runt which Ishihara's mind turned into the Great Icecream Cone Incident."
