BONER CANDIDATE #1: I THINK LITTLE MISS PERIOD IS KIND OF CUTE…

A Japanese department store has been slammed over its controversial plan to encourage female employees to wear ‘period badges’ when menstruating. The Daimaru Umeda department store in Osaka claims the badge aimed to boost culture and foster sympathy among co-workers, not trigger a public outcry. The badge, which would be worn alongside the employee’s name tag, features a manga character named ‘Seiri-Chan’, which loosely translates to ‘Little Miss Period’. One Twitter user said it would be “creepy” to know a sales assistant was on their period. While another woman labelled the badges “crazy”. One woman went as far as saying “there is absolutely no need to expose” this information, comparing it to “saying I am doing diarrhoea now”. A male executive, who declined to be named, said the company had received many complaints from the public. “Some of them concerned harassment, and that was definitely not our intention,” he said.   Read More

The boy’s response was a bit more serious. “I’m thankful that I’m finally going to be adopted by my two dads,” he answered. Students later said that the substitute snapped, “Why on earth would you be happy about that?” For the next 10 minutes she lectured the 30 kids in the class about her own views, how “homosexuality is wrong” and “two men living together is a sin.” She looked at the boy, too, and told him: “That’s nothing to be thankful for.” Three girls asked her to stop multiple times. But she continued, so they walked out of the room to get the principal. As the substitute was escorted out of the building, she was still arguing, trying to make her point, the boy’s fathers say they were told by school officials. “She also tried to blame our son,” said one of the boy’s dads, Louis van Amstel, “and told him that it was his fault that she went off.”   Read More
