Lolicon and pedophile, HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!

Loli can be over 18, reffered to as 'Legal Loli'. That's why eroges(hentai games) have settings that says 'Academy' instead of 'School'. That way, they can't tell if it's an adult academy or a high school, going around the law that states all characters must be older than 18.


actually, it's still pedophilia to be turned on by girls that LOOK like they're young even if they're 18+. the difference comes in how a person acts on that attraction. in itself, it's a genetic/hormonal disposition and it doesn't become a bad thing until you act on those urges.

in reference to OP though, anime/manga (even hentai) does not necessarily involve loli or even sexual references. while the uninformed might see it as 'childish' due to the american/western stereotyping of animated shows and movies as being for that age group, i have yet to come across anyone who stereotypes anime as pedophilia.

So if I get turned on by 18+, I'm a pedophile? But...I'm only 19!!!

Last month, some douche on Youtube said that I'm a pedo who molests my younger sister. I snickered and called my little sis over to read it. She was dumb-struck for a moment, made funny face, and we both laughed our asses off for a few minutes. I told the guy that we find it funny, which seemed to derail his tirade. The conversation suddenly turned civil and he later apologized. My younger sis is 18 and also watches anime, by the way. Also, this conversation started on a Hellsing OST video, and I find it curious that the dipshit was there in the first place.

I personally find the "pedophile" label unrealistic and idiotic, especially considering how many children watch anime. Are 8 year-old Pokemon fans supposed to be pedos?


Let me guess how all this started. You gave an opinion about something. The other guy didn't like it and was outraged. Did I hit the mark?


A bit off. The guy was in a really long argument with a few other people and I called him out for trolling.

A little ways down in the comment section is a post by 'Jetlag' with 52 replies. You'll find the drama in the replies.

Looking back, it happened about 2 months ago, not one. Time flew.

Oh wow. Yeah, the fool had ignorance written all over him about the anime culture, though I couldn't get really far because of his appalling grammar.

...No. Just, no. If you're referring to lolis then don't show people anime with them in it.

if you need tl;dr :p i said pedophilia is related to physical appearance while right/wrong is determined by age. so a fully developed 14 yo turning you on is not pedophilia but would be wrong to have sex with, while being turned on by a 21 yo that looks pre-pubescent is pedophilia but would not be wrong to have sex with.

and specific ages can be argued and are mainly determined by culture. some places the legal age might be 16 instead of 18.

So this is practically the "violent games cause violence" story but it's now "anime makes pedos"?

Well I've been watching anime for over 6+ years and I have no urge to have sexual relations with little children either female or male.

Thanks but I prefer legal relationships that won't result me in looking down upon by practically the entire planet and it being illegal, downloading music and anime is good enough for me thanks :P

But seriously, how the heck does watching anime get you to be looked at like a pedo? If you're watching like all those lolita animes and you now only get turned on my child like people than okay that's creepy as fuck but unless you're kidnapping kids and fucking them then there's nothing illegal about it. If the same person starts downloading and/or making child pornography then it's different but just cause someone might have a fetish doesn't make it illegal....yet.

If you're watching vampires being blown up, teenagers jiggle their butts, and black men uber kick a guy's head off....I really doubt you're suddenly going to stand up and want to have sex with kids.

I'm saying of all the illegal things you can do in the world I'd rather download music and anime versus pedophilia. I was trying to further establish the point that the whole "watch anime now you're a pedo" thought train is totally derp.

*cough* Though I'm pretty sure everyone has at least downloaded 1 song or an anime episode one time in their life. I mean some music isn't even in circulation and same goes for animes that are so damn old you'd need to search the globe for a VHS for it.

But that's besides the point, you can always msg me if you wanna chat about that outside of this thread.

======

Has anyone actually met someone in real life that's said something that hints that people actually believe that people who watch anime are creeps or something?
I know there's otakus of varying levels and some are those very creepy sorts who get off from starting at figurines underwear,etc but like most things there's your extremists of any sort of interest.

I mean if this statement were to be true then all of Japan is nothing but pedos....that would make it very awkward.

I'd like to think I'm pretty normal for the most part. And yeah, there are those creeps that you mentioned who do exist. I only think you're a pedophile if you are sexually attracted to little kids in anime and somehow "get off" when/if they do sexualize them in any way. That's what's most disgusting.
