Japan male heir born, a boy!

Princess Kiko, the wife of Prince Akishino, the Emperor's second son, gave birth to a boy on Wednesday morning. This is a long-awaited male heir to the Chrysanthemum Throne.

The baby is the first male born to the Imperial family in 41 years and becomes the third in line to the throne after Crown Prince Naruhito, 46, and Prince Akishino, 40. The Imperial House Law allows only males with emperors on their father's side to ascend the throne.

"That is good news," Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi told reporters after hearing about the birth at his official residence.

This is just one of the many problems faced by the Japanese society today. Their birth rate is just 1.25 per woman (comparatively Malaysia's birth rate is 2.8 per woman according to year 2004's statistics).

Maybe the financial burden faced is heavy indeed. But more clearly, their sexual life must be in a big mess. Some more the Japanese loves to bath at the onsen - must be real tough on their sperms inside those testicles.

Japanese might rejoice now for their new prince. However, we cry for the women there. Subject to male dominance for so long, they're not entitled for a reigning queen - not in the near future. Ah, cultural changes has made the now emperor to forgo having cocubines but not powerful enough to let a woman became a symbolic head of a throne.

And to think that they are living off the welfare of the state...As Warren Buffett said, "There should be no divine right of the womb." Scrap it man. There's a number of family members being demoted to ordinary citizen what. Is it fair? What's the difference? It's only the direction.
