About a month ago, RADWIMPS’ Noda Yojiro found himself under fire after he promoted eugenics in a tweet, calling for the country to assign spouses to people with great genes, “I’ve talked about this before, but I think there should be a national project to determine the spouses of people with monster genes like Ohtani Shohei, Fujii Sōta, and Ashida Mana.“
Noteworthy that Ashida Mana is currently a 16-year-old girl and was a child actress. I don’t wanna know why she came to the forefront of his mind.
He later tried to play it off, but only after people called him out for it, comparing it to Nazism.
“You’re confusing humans and thoroughbred horses. It’s scary how quickly ‘Let’s preserve the superior genes’ becomes ‘Let’s remove the inferior genes.’ It’s vital for the diversity of seeds to persist from an evolutionary standpoint as well.”
The deserved backlash went on for quite a while, which … thank god.
Still though, it’s amazing to me that he felt fine to tweet about this, and that he felt it was important to note that this is nothing new for him.
