Yeah man when cause there is nothing sketchy and creepy about lolis at all. Especially coming from a 33 year old.

Considering that people don't even know wtf the meaning of loli is truly makes me smile. Really the word has undergone so many damned definitions since the original word started. First it was a character from a book, then a fashion statement then the porn industry got a hold of it and made it dirty and now its used to standardize any girl that looks underage... A lot like fan service has been misused for a while now, the word literally means service to the fans, not just ecchi.

You do realise the book were it originates from is about a man fucking his step daughter. Its not like the term started out innocent and became corrupted over time. Im not gonna pretend that im okay with lolis. I find them to be creepy and I find people who like them to be creepy.

I won't say the book's use of the word was innocent but that doesn't mean that the word needs to mean underage children in sexual themes.
Leave it to people to take the worst meaning possible of something and dwell on that.

Just like how gothic has been used over and over for different things when it originally started out as a style of art in Germany if i recall.

Again look at Otaku, generally they get labeled as the stereotypical geeky guy/girl thats usually unattractive or so obsessed with something. Yet there are tons of hot looking girls and guys that can be considered Otaku.

Considering that you consider it Pedophilia means you need to stop watching any anime that involves an underage person that is younger than 18 in a sexual act due to that could be considered pedophila material.

OK... I thought SJW was a term exclusively hurled at women who pointed out gender inequalities in media. The link that hairbelly posted says exactly the opposite (i.e, SJWs = anonymous doxxers/fight-starters who harass people online). Confused now. ===But no, do not want anyone vs. anyone on this forum, regardless of san's politics. .

Gothic originally referred to the Goths an East Germanic people for the record.

Onto the main shit. I dont see how your post proves its not pedophilia and before you pull the "its okay in Japan card" no its not there has been a huge push to clean up the industry of loliconism by the Japanese people

This video sums up alot of my feelings on loliconism

Based on how often I've seen the label get thrown around, it doesn't seem to take much to earn it.

Please, please, please critically review articles and commentary from SJWs. A good test to determine if a position being espoused is valid or worthwhile is to answer these questions about their position or argument.

1) Is the problem being discussed actually a problem or simply a perceived injustice in which no one is actually harmed?
2) Is the problem being discussed a problem that can actually be solved or just complaints about current social norms or culture?
3) Is the action they are advocating for going to actually help address the problem they are talking about?
4) Is the action they are advocating going to unduly harm others
5) Is the action they are advocating going to unduly limit the freedoms of others?
6) Is the action they are advocating going to have a derogatory effect on a medium they are discussing?

If the discussion in question is actually discussing a real problem which can actually be solved without greatly infringing upon the safety or freedoms of others and wont potentially hamper the creativity of industry segments then it may be something to look at. Unfortunately most of the 'discussions' coming from modern day SJWs does not pass this simple test. There are many sources of good information on why SJW arguments seem reasonable, but are in fact quite flawed or repressive in their own ways.

The extremists and militants in the Social Justice movement – it is important to remember that there are moderates, too, though they tend to be less vocal – are unable to penetrate anime / manga (and JRPG) fandom to the same degree as other fandoms, I have noticed, and the reason for this is that the creators who bring us these things are in Japan and – pardon my language – honestly could not give a flying fuck about varying levels of butthurt in the (comparatively small) non-Japanese regions of their customer base.

yea, I keep running into this one guy on here who seems to call himself a "champion of justice", yet the only thing he does is tell people how evil he thinks lolis are. not to mention his definition of what a loli is is skewed pretty badly.


Such an upstanding citizen sounds likely deserves a medal, and a parade held in his honor.

Can an admin please close this pointless and terrible thread.

How the hell this turn into lolicons ? I swear the people who hate on lolis are more likely to actually be into it lolis. Is like saying you hate gays and then somebody does a search of your internet history, and find gay porn on your history.


Just drop it. If you don't like it, don't watch it in the first place.


The same applies to lolis. You hate it but you keep talking about it. You hate but watch anime with it and then bitch about it. Don't you see the problem here ?

And can people stop comparing lolis with pedophilia. They are completely different subjects. To claim otherwise is pure ignorance.

I'll just go cry in a corner now...

Really, why is it so necessary to attack people for an interest that doesn't negatively impact other people? The level of intolerance is really sad. Honestly, though the two may not allows be connected, the same could be said for pedophilia (not sexual abuse, as many people assume right from the start), though I try to avoid the subject so I'm not attacked. At the very least, can't you resist the urge to jump on a group of people? It only causes harm; it certainly doesn't help anything.

On the wider topic: SJW's are people, too. So long as they can have a rational conversation about a topic, they are fine by me - and if they can't, I simply don't wish to interact with them. I don't dislike them.

1. I doubt youll find Lolis in my history. Oppai for life.

2. I recognize anime can be more than its parts and I can like something but not like certain aspects of it. Take Eva for example I find Kaji and his interatctions with misato and other characters to be how do I put this, Rapey but the I love the show overall just not that part of it. Ill complain about Kaji because I dont like his interactions in the show but I still enjoy eva immensely. I listen to alot of power electronics despite the fact I find alot of artists resort to controversial subjects as just shock material rather than trying to make a point about it. I like Bakemonogatari alot despite the lolicon stuff creeping me out. (funny story my dad actually walked in on me watching the bathtub scene AWKWARD AS FUCK)

3. If you think there is a huge difference between loliconism and pedophilia that creeps me out a bit.
