comment Why is the euphemism “comfort women” so heavily used?
I'm referring to the sentence "The word comfort was also used to describe Japanese prostitute stations set up for occupying Allied troops immediately following Word War II.". I don't doubt that terms in Japanese were used post-war that, if translated to English, could potentially contain the word "comfort", but I'm doubtful as to whether the word "comfort" was used in English at that time to describe post-WWII facilities.

I think "Special Comfort Facility Association" is Wikipedia providing a literal translation of a Japanese term, rather than indicating "comfort" was used in that context at that time.
