    Aww dude don't do this you're setting yourself up for future cringe

    [–] This is just a reminder that Bank of America charges $144 a year to have a basic checking account, and will change your account type over automatically after you graduate, or charge you when you're looking for a job KyleKairu 1 points ago in personalfinance

    Many people signed up for these accounts with their parents when they were sixteen. You could call them lacking in personal responsibility when they forget if that makes you feel better, still doesn't hurt to remind them.

    And I never said this was unique to Bank of America, though they are only one of two banks I know of with a hard $1500 cutoff (not just a monthly average). If you feel a simple reminder of their policy is "villainizing" that's on you. I've simply provided the reminder on their policy to help out other people.

    [–] S. Korea likely to resume humanitarian aid, civilian exchanges with N. Korea KyleKairu 0 points ago in korea

    perhaps a change in policy is in order.

    Sunshine Policy didn't work so well last time, if I remember correctly.

    Combined monthly average is a totally easier target than a hard cut. $500 is also a way smaller target. Also you're only mentioning the three big corporate banks and not the other competitors out there. A couple banks out of the many chains out there does not make a "majority".

    Exploit is a loaded word, but people have certainly come to expect not paying for basic checking. In fact my grandma is still under the impression that the interest in banks is still significant and that you can actually make money just leaving it there.

    Whether you think graduates who get hit with the fee deserve it or not, a reminder hurts no one.

    Yeah a lot of well off people with jobs are commenting as if this reminder was for them. I'm not sure why people are so upset about this simple reminder. I hope your comment gets more upvotes so I can stop receiving these same replies.

    Also my intention wasn't to complain, my intention was to gently remind and help out all these students who are graduating, many who signed up for these accounts when they were sixteen.

    [–] Keidanren urges big business to end Mexican discrimination, by adding a tiny slice of rancid jalapeño to every bento KyleKairu 3 points ago in japancirclejerk

    Seems like we need to make distinctions between bathrooms and open changing areas. Or have people who want access to those areas actually able to change their ID with a doctor's note. As it stands, I'm willing to bet more gay coaches have been arrested for abusing/filming children in locker rooms than actual, transitioning/diagnosed trans people have hurt people in bathrooms (your articles bring up a lot of guys disguising themselves as women to get access, which is a different issue). It's pretty much the tiniest issue that has turned into a full blown moral panic.

    Of course none of this will ever happen in Japan (lol) so it's kinda pointless to argue about, it's one of those things where I don't think the Js have it completely right but I also think foreigners should shut up about when visiting, like Tanaka san clipping his damned toenails on the desk that inaka bastard.

    How many actual, transitioning trannies do you know of that have been arrested for assaulting people in bathrooms? It's just a moral panic for soccer moms, like"the gays in the locker room" used to be.

    I'm fine with having to have matching genitals for locker rooms and other places we don't have full length privacy stalls etc, but playing potty police just because someone looking weird while innocently peeing sets off soccer mom trigger alarms is a bit ridiculous. We don't need the government arresting people for emotional crimes rather than actual crimes. Government should regulate non violent behavior as little as possible.

    That being said, I have no sympathy for idiots who come here expecting to get European treatment in Japan.

    If you're looking for a different viewpoint, check out r/gender_critical. Very eye opening.

    Most definitely will my dude

    Most of the clubs and plenty of the other places I went in Seoul had gender neutral bathrooms and no one cared. Last I checked they have lower crime rates than even our glorious Tokyo. Assault is illegal already. People who say that care more about playing morality police and just say "think of the wyminz and children" when they really don't care, they just find trannies weird and want them arrested. If some chick wants to grow a mustache and piss in the stall next to me, I'll think it's weird, but who cares. People are too easily triggered/offended.

    Yeah the whole separate bathroom is pretty unreasonable, but they wouldn't be requesting that if they weren't often assaulted/arrested no matter which bathroom they used (actually backed by statistics and law).

    Don't come to Japan and think it's a going to be a fairy wonderland, or that they should bend over backwards to accommodate your weirdness, but let's also not be a bunch of trigger babies and cry for the police to arrest people for pissing in the stalls to the right instead of the left. As long as they didn't slap anyone with their labes on the way in or actually hurt something besides soccer mom's feelings.
