http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-941897/should-people-who-create-sexual-fan-art-of-underage-anime-characters-be-punished?pg=6


So I've been enjoying the fanservice and immensely Catholic lesbian characters, and punching the doorknob to adult cartoons and fanart. But then I realized something horrible, and I don't know how to live with myself anymore.

I've just realized that most of the fanservice-related content depicts girls under the age of 18. Even non-lewd fanart often has some pervy elements!

I also realized that hentai is full of minors and sexual violence. I thought that 15yo and the ugly bastard were just pretending!!!

And I found out "loli" is NOT a synonym for "hot midget".

Obviously, the anime industry needs to attend Jale University. But what am I gonna watch then?? Netflix??

And how do I forgive myself?? I have plenty of obscene and non-obscene cartoon image files in my "Nothing Here" folder!! I wanted to erase them, but I can't! My family crowbar has a weeb virus and doesn't let me press delete on my keyboard!!

Please help...

Not gonna lie, I laughed out loud

How about all those idiots who claim shit like "she's not underage, she's 300 years old canonically" or some shit like that?

Also, this isn't just anime. Japanese video games pull this shit, too.

I think they're lying. They're probably cooperating with Illuminati and NASA globe earthers. Cause those people can lie...

EDIT: That 15yo in a game? Well, at least it's mostly non-sexual violence.

This image makes me so disgusted I look at it every morning for 20 minutes to get up filled with anger. I use a tissue because it makes me cry.

What's creepier is when they sexualize 10 year olds.

I'm not very concerned with drawings and their "age". Most aren't even a decade old in human years.

But the age of consent is 13 in Japan with some restrictions on it: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_consent#By_country_or_region

I'm fairly certain that the general age of consent in Japan is 16 or 18, since local areas all tend to have it passed at around that level. Even if the national "default" age is 13 or so, though as you said there are restrictions all around.

But really, that's a bit irrelevant here. Everybody always tries to justify fictional depictions of characters from Japan or similar as being acceptable because "but it's legal there," while ignoring the more relevant argument of "it's FICTION, THEY ARE NOT REAL PEOPLE, NOBODY IS BEING HURT IN ANY WAY."

I don't know about all of you, but I find that a "crime" is something that should involve a "criminal act." Criminal acts should involve something that causes an actual harm to others specifically, or to society as a whole (though this should be done far more carefully). This sort of thing certainly isn't hurting anyone in particular, so the only argument to be made about it being "wrong" is to make a claim that it hurts society, even though there's zero evidence for such or reason to believe this.

Unless you're some sort of religious fundamentalist who believes everyone who watches or looks at fictional depictions is going to Hell or something, but people who are mentally unstable like that any believe in fairy tales are not exactly people that I think should have their opinions taken seriously. If you think that fiction of any kind is "bad" for someone to like, then it's hard to take that opinion remotely seriously.

I almost face-palmed, but then I read the suspicious "twenty minutes in the morning and a tissue for 'tears'" comment. Well played, good sir.


As for me; I don't extend human rights to imaginary friends.

I sometimes wonder if people should feel shame, and it is times like when I am reading this thread that I am inclined towards "yes."

The artwork a person consumes says something about that person, just as the artwork that is sanctioned by a society says something about that society. How do we balance concerns for freedom with social responsibility? An age of consent is something that should be respected by society, and artwork in such a society should, if it is to be considered socially responsible artwork, respect that as well, even where fictional characters are concerned. Note that I am not arguing if it should be illegal, a point on which I am undecided. However, it should be considered in poor taste, and relentlessly campaigned against. The fact that people consume such artwork without regard to its implications is the point, and if no one is being hurt directly, one might ask: what about indirectly? The very failure to observe an age of consent is precisely the problem that criminal sexual offenders who target children have.

So yes, I am arguing that a taboo should be observed, for the reason that this taboo has a social function. If people are going to somehow argue that this leads to repression and thus more sexual crime, I would like to point out that I am not arguing for the banning of pornography and sexual expressivity as such. With all the porn that is available, is there a good reason why any of it should be animated, underage porn? Even ecchi depictions of underage characters is, at the very least, in poor taste.

That said, I know better than to think I am going to convince anyone who thinks otherwise.
