You. Are. Fine. As others have said self-awareness is key, and the main problem is the dehumanization of of a person or group of people through its use and its affects on society and the attitudes within it. Like how Jews are seen as greedy and evil, and how women's worth is often dictated by beauty, fertility, chastity, and servility. The pressure to have big breasts is outstanding, btw. :_: You really can't escape these things...

But, I'm a sex-positive feminist, so my bias will always be that it is fine as long as you don't skew too close to the "they are pieces of meat for my pleasure" line or cross it. And, this is the same for women as well. Like, there was this rapper with a really nice body whose female fans began treating him as a stripper with no regard fr his humanity, and he ended up with really bad body image issues because of it. I'm pretty sure that it's not as common in men for beauty standards, but it is most likely on the rise as people become more accepting of sexually-active women and begin to market sex in that way to the female demographic, IMO.

If we started judging by thoughts almost everyone would be in jail. I doubt people would dare walk on the same street as me lol. Anyway, think what you want, but not acting upon your thoughts is what takes skills.

If looking at and enjoying clearly sexualized women is objectification, then I've been guilty of objectifying men since I was twelve. It's unreasonable to expect men to be the equivalent of celibate paladins. To do otherwise is as unreasonable as the former notion of women being innocent and sexually frigid lambs, which, as I recall, hasn't been especially popular since the Victorian Era (thank you, Roaring Twenties). Treasure your dakimakuras.

Basically what every-nyan else's sayin': do what you want l enjoy the hell out of it, be nice to real people :3

Life is too short to worry about this shit. I lovemcatgirls and castboys, and ecchi and harem series. The more an anime girl shows her big round fits and nice ass to me the better of an anime girl I think she is, simple as that. There is nothing wrong with that, because I threat real people with respect. I mean off course I love if a girl cosplays as a sexy cute catgirl with a pantsu shot, but I will still askm nicely if I may take a picture, and I won't grope them. Unless that one time where on a con a catgirl had a sign"touch me I like it" but that is Kay: only with permission. As long as you adhere to that rule and are friendly to 3d people , enjoy all you want, nothing wrong with it. Although I have to say in would love to live in the world of sexy harem anime's, but unfortunately that's not possible :-(

I also have a huge fetish on live-action coslay porn of sexy girls it's only healthy really :-)

BTW one exception to that I like everyone rule of mine: everyone here apparently agrees that it's fine for ecchi harems with catgirls too exist, and I have the right to enjoy them. So I have no problem with y'all nice peoples. The only thing I hate are the obnoxious feminist haters who try to ruin all the fun for me. They can drop dead as long as I,m cioncerned. It's my life, my hobby, I don't tolerate anyone trying to ruin or change the sort of anime or games I like. Don't you dare to take away my fantasy awesome sexy anime catgirls harems godammnit ! :-)

As long as you let producers make what they want and don't resend/hate/criticize me for enjoying it (off course assuming I respect everyone respect IRL) we have no problem :-) which means I agree with everyone here, right? X%

The part that I wonder how in this topic is "Do I have to throw out the dakimakuras I accumulated over the years?"
You got at least let say 3 in 3 years since 116 years old. welp if the society does not have an issue with it. why bother around wondering how to tread them when they haven`t standardize how they want to be treated example Victoria secret vs feminazis . just be neutral dude

as long as you recognize the difference between catgirls and real girls youre fine. a lot of anime is objectifying to women but most people know you cant go up to a girl and grab her boobs and whatnot because you'd probably get a swift punch to the face, but it doesnt mean you have to completely stop liking things. you can recognize things as problematic and still like them so long as you can distinguish the two if that makes any sense. most people have no problem with this soo yeah.

If you can get your mental perspective to start by seeing everyone as human, and other things as individual identifiers there shouldn't be any problems with enjoying any genre or fetish. Starting with too narrow a perception is usually the problem, because it causes needless misunderstandings.

Well, OP, do you mostly indulge with anime girls/women, or do you also look at lots of real life porn (whether it be pics, video clips, or both)? The former is not too bad, if you ask me. Really, it isn't so bad. But with the latter, you are gawking at real people who filmed/photographed themselves and put it on the net for all to see. Real people that really matter. And something to consider: even though these people consensually agree to have their media (pics, video) be put on the net (or in DVDs, blu-rays, magazines, etc.), one should consider how a lot of people who do filmed and photographed porno end up regretting that they did it and that it is all out there for anyone to see. One should consider that many deeply regret it.
