Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

.@naokis = one of many in Japan who argue that bc of Asahi's position on one soldier's story, dozens of comfort women's testimonies..

& historical docs put fwd by Japan's own govt no longer matter. I've never seen so many Japanese in such an intellectual and moral vacuum.

I encourage anyone confused abt Yoshida's comfort women testimony to read our orig. story, which lays down the issues…

Also a must-read, Nori Onishi's fine take on the topic: In Japan, Historian Stands by Proof of Wartime Sex Slavery

@HirokoTabuchi Please define what is the "sex slavery".

2014-09-14 02:38:03
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

Sexual slavery as understood by the Rome Statute on crimes against humanity: "Sexual slavery is a particular form of enslavement..

2014-09-14 02:42:26
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

..which includes limitations on one's autonomy, freedom of movement and power to decide matters relating to one's sexual activity...

2014-09-14 02:42:43
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

Thus, the crime also includes forced marriages, domestic servitude or other forced labor that ultimately involves forced sexual activity..

Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

In contrast to the crime of rape, which is a completed offence, sexual slavery constitutes a continuing offence..

2014-09-14 02:43:22
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

Forms of sexual slavery can, for example, be practices such as the detention of women in "rape camps" or "comfort stations"..

池田信夫 @ikedanob

Asahi admitted "No official documents were found that directly showed forcible taking away by the military"

2014-09-14 02:43:49
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

..forced temporary "marriages" to soldiers and other practices involving the treatment of women as chattel..

2014-09-14 02:43:54
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

..and as such, violations of the peremptory norm prohibiting slavery."…

@HirokoTabuchi Japanese govt admitted it was "involved" in the trade of women by private parties in 1992.

Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

There is no doubt the Japanese military engaged in sexual slavery, an eg (far from the only eg) of violence against women in conflict.

If NYT accuses "sex slavery" by private parties during WW2, it's completely right. Nobody argues such self-evident issues. @HirokoTabuchi

池田信夫 @ikedanob

@HirokoTabuchi Do you mean "Japanese military did human trafficking"? What's the evidence?

2014-09-14 03:05:53
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

There is confusion in Japan over what we mean by "sexual slavery." The running of comfort stations itself is an act of sexual slavery.

2014-09-14 03:08:11
池田信夫 @ikedanob

Private parties did sex slavery (human trafficking) during WW2. Japanese govt managed them. It already apologized in 1992 and 1993.

池田信夫 @ikedanob

This definition of "sex slavery" is the same as it of Yoshimi. He also admitted he found no "military abduction" in Korea.

Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

.@naokis: "Comfort woman was a profession. It wasn't slavery." This is what I mean by Japan being stuck in an intellectual and moral vacuum.

2014-09-14 03:25:50
池田信夫 @ikedanob

@HirokoTabuchi The "comfort stations" were run by private parties. They "bought" women from their parents. No military enforcement.

2014-09-14 03:26:20
池田信夫 @ikedanob

.@HirokoTabuchi You can call prostitutes as "sex slaves" if you like. It doesn't matter. The issue is the military enforcement.

2014-09-14 03:29:50
Hiroko Tabuchi @HirokoTabuchi

I've already tweeted a definition of "sexual slavery" based on the Rome Statute, of which Japan is a signatory. Also: have a good day!
