[Trigger Warning: This video contains discussions on sexual slavery, abuse, rape, and violence]

COMFORT WOMEN WANTED, a very short documentary filmed by Chang-Jin Lee discussing the lives of Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Filipino, and Dutch “Comfort Women” survivors, and a former Japanese soldier. Comfort Women comprised of 200,000 young women and girls, referred to as “Comfort Women,” who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army. The title, COMFORT WOMEN WANTED, is a reference to the actual text of advertisements which appeared in Asian newspapers during the war. When advertising failed, young women and girls from Korea, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Netherlands were kidnapped or deceived then forced into sexual slavery. These women and girls were raped and beaten by 50-100 soldiers a day at military rape camps, known as “Comfort Stations.” There are estimations that only 30% survived the ordeal. The “Comfort Women System” is considered the largest case of human trafficking in the 20th century. The remaining Comfort Women are now in their 80s/90s still waiting for a formal apology from the Japanese government, which has attempted to suppress, silence, and erase the issue to the extent of protesting the Comfort Woman statue. Just recently, the imbeciles at Gawking’s Valleywag published an article called “Start-up Flying Dateable Women to San Francisco Like It’s Imperial Japan” essentially trivializing and romanticizing the experiences of Comfort Women and stating it’s “inspiration” from the Comfort Women of World War Two. Many Asian and Asian American readers demanded the removal of the article and an apology. But the writer, Nitasha, wrote a lazy apology instead of constructing an in depth apology, and the article is STILL on their websiteDespite the growing awareness of the issue, this aspect of history has been at most unacknowledged. In this documentary, Chang-Jin Lee attempts to bring light on the organized violence against Comfort Women, and to create a constructive dialogue for the future by acknowledging their place in history.

This dog is not allowed on the bed. So his human installed a camera to check what happens when the dog stays home alone. The results are hilarious.
