Because so many have and are reading this thread, and as I see both what tekvacuous stated that "In any case I've seen guys here in China beat more women than in my whole life in Canada." - which in itself draws the question - If you have seen it - what did you do to stop it? - and the cascading misinformation about Canada - and also my loss of control in reacting to the mouthings of such a neanderthal; I feel I should provide some stats - in one of my usually over long pompous posts.|
Canada - my Canada - is not free from that which causes revulsion - unfortunately.

JAPAN THE TRAFFICKING OF WOMEN
Thousands of women are smuggled into Japan every year. They arrive with promises of good paying jobs in hotels, restaurants, etc. The reality is to find a life of sexual slavery awaits them.
The trade in women is controlled by the yakuza crime syndicate. These women are forced to work as prostitutes against their own free will and receive no payment.
The yakuza rely on the terror of the concentration camp, verbal threats, beatings and rape. Japan is one of the regions top destinations for women forced into sexual slavery.
The trade accounts for 1% of Japan's GNP, as big as its annual defense budget. Little wonder the Japanese government does not care about these women. It appears it considers the dollar more important.
Sometimes the women escape these prostitution death camps but the retribution is swift and brutal. Usually it is targeted at both the women and their families. Traffickers gunned down a Thai man who was waiting at Bangkok airport to meet his daughter who had fled her captors.
JAPANESE WAR SEX SLAVES
The Japanese Army used comfort stations extensively until the war ended in the Pacific in 1945.
A majority of the women who provided sex for Japanese soldiers were forcibly taken from their families.
Family members were beaten or killed if they tried to rescue the women. The ages of the girls that were taken to the comfort houses ranged from 9 to 20. Some were married women with children.
Once the women arrived at the comfort station they were forced to have sex with 20 to 30 men a day. If they resisted they were beaten or killed.
A majority of the 80,000 to 200,000 comfort women were from Korea though others were recruited or kidnapped from China, Philippines, Burma, and Indonesia.
Many women became sterile from the repeated rapes. When the comfort women became useless because of their sickness, their milk was mixed with cyanide, their bodies taken to a cave and finally, the cave was blown up with a grenade.
The events that led to international awareness of the issue began in 1988. In that year, Professor Yun Chung Ok of Ehwa Women's University in Korea began to lead an activist group that conducted and presented research about the comfort women.
The Japanese government denied that women had been forced to work at comfort stations. After the war the Japanese got rid of any related documents and references. In 1991, three Korean former comfort women filed a lawsuit against the Japanese government.
In 1992 Professor Yoshimi Yoshiaki of Chuo University found wartime documents in the Library of the National Institute for Defense Studies that confirmed that the Japanese Forces had operated comfort stations. On the same day that excerpts from the documents were published in Japanese newspapers. The Japanese government finally admitted its involvement.
Currently, not only are visuals with pubic hair and exposed genitalia present, but available are visual depictions of hard-core sexual encounters which include bestiality, sadomasochism, necrophilia and incest; the characters involved may be adults, children or both and they can be in manga as well as in adult reading materials. There is a "Child Welfare Law" in Japan which prohibits child prostitution. However, there are no specific child pornography laws in Japan and SEM depicting minors are readily available and widely consumed. Most charges of obscenity presently are related to depictions of group or violent rape or realistic and graphic film or video depictions of sexual behaviors considered deviant and dangerous (as in Ai no corrida).
The character of the rape also changed markedly. Early in our period of observation many of the rapes were gang (more than a single attacker) rapes thus accounting for the number of offenders exceeding the number of rapes reported.
There are other stats available but not necessary. Although, anyone going to Japan (yes, I've been there several times) will know they can walk into most 7-11's and buy child porn - even the cartoon type.

Is China free from this type of repugnant treatment of women? No, of course not and anyone suggesting it is being less than honest - but regardless of what tekvacuous claims; it isn't the worst.
