Anyone who thinks you're a pedophile for watching an animation that isn't about pedophilia is like calling someone a murderer for watching a film that isn't about killing. No matter which way you look at it it's beyond stupid. It's incomprehensibly pathetic.

Oh and lolicon as per Japan's view of it is actually illegal, I believe a year ago they made a ruling that in any hentai or anime that had a child-like character have sex. The character has to be labeled as being of a legal age or something. I was quite impressed as Japan had that lolicon stuff going for awhile but I believe they made that ruling as having legal child porn in the sense of hentai was giving ppl the thought that REAL child porn was okay.

Personally don't care if people read shota hentai. So long as people aren't attracted to real children, I don't think anyone else should either. Fiction is fiction. Drawings are drawings. Looking for horror movies doesn't make someone creepy, but apparently reading shota makes people pedophiles?

Back to the topic at hand though, I didn't know anyone labeled people as pedophiles for watching anime lol

I think you're referring to Bill 156 in the Tokyo metropolis. (2010 actually, time flies. [Edit: or it might have actually passed a bit later now that I think about it. Oh well, too late at night to think too much.]) This did not affect material labeled as adults-only. Adults can still buy hardcore lolicon material. It was to prevent minors from obtaining such material. Not 100% on this, but claiming the characters were over 18 is likely done so they can guarantee their sales won't run-afoul of the youth sales ban when they aren't labeled R-18. Claiming their characters are over 18 also allows wider international distribution for those interested in wider distribution.

Oh that what that is then? Well guess I can't say it doesn't do any good at all but at least kids and stuff won't be getting hands on it :P
Though even if the characters have to be stated as adults I doubt most of the stuff will get to some countries based on looking through the stuff you could clearly note that despite "I'm 18!" if the character looks like a child and their having sex that it ain't gonna fly.

I watch anime and family and friends families friends know I watch it and don't really care and I have never been called a pedo for it same with my manga there is some like Claymore where it can show some bewbs and also I have another one that I just got I can't remember the name it starts with N and its about magic and this little kid is a teacher for this school my mind is going blank on it but that also has some nudity to it too and no one calls me a pervert for reading them or owning them.

This is true. That said, no piece of pornography is universally legal in all the world's territories anyway. Interestingly, insofar as possession goes, there's no piece of pornography that is universally illegal either.

I think I'm diverging a bit from the original topic though, if an employer fires you for watching anime you probably don't want to work for them anyway. If they openly falsely accuse you of something on the basis that you watch anime, and this causes you injury: you may be able to sue for defamation of character depending on the laws where you live.

Also: Bob_Bob_Law: I think the show you're talking about is Negima!

If they're too stupid to realize there's a big wall between reality and fantasy, then they need their talking privileges taken away.

Considering that everything anime, even stuff like hentai is completely drawn, and quite divorced from reality a lot of times then it is probably their own insecurities that make them say stuff like that. I had noticed that a lot of people who like to go around screaming and preaching about the "correct" way of living and "correct" values, they most of the time are tempted by exactly the things that they seem to hate. And in some cases they have done things or are doing things that are in direct opposition to their words.

Here in UK a lot of things are personal, and in many cases people are more or less ok with whatever is that you watch as longs as you keep it to yourself.

No, just kidding. In all honesty, rephrase your sentences because they are confusing. Also, I've never been called a pedophile before.
