i see that the ones for women are omitted, because only women are allowed to objectify men like pieces of meat.

Ummmmm You're using a female in your profile picture when you clearly state you are male. That's clearly sexist and discriminatory towards women as you see them as nothing more than placeholders of empty slots. You think it's okay to put pics of girls on your profile when you aren't a girl? Misogynistic pig!

Uhm i'm sorry what.. since when was this ever a thing?
Have you ever stopped to think just possibly said male might view said female equally and just enjoys the female character as they would a male character to represent the series they equally also enjoy?

So now not only do we have to worry about having any character that's always showing cleavage and being viewed as some filth as a human being for it but now we have to worry about having women in general as our profile picture?

What if i like magik from marvel or some series that has a female protagonist like Akatsuki no yona or Twelve kingdoms, i'm now suddenly sexist and a misogynistic pig for representing this? My favorite type of female characters are the one's that are equal to men just completely reliable and strong regardless of how they dress but extra points for the more they wear regardless. The series Kingdom is an excellent example of this.

lol but seriously are we in the middle ages now why are we regressing and pointing fingers for no reason nowadays?

It won't be too long before the Vatican becomes the next worldwide organization to try to stop hentai. As they say in that classic Monty Python skit "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition".

compensation for women with disabilities sterilised against their will


Okay, what the fuck Japan?


In Japan, a "eugenic" law permitted involuntary sterilization of people with intellectual or mental disability from 1948 to 1996. More than 16,500 women and men were sterilized against their will. On September 16, 1997, 17 civic groups, representing women and people with disability, and dozens of interested persons demanded from the Minister of Health and Welfare an apology, compensation, and investigation, but the Ministry refused with the excuse that these sterilizations were legal at that time.


What the fuck Japan? 1996?!



Most of the involuntary sterilizations were performed on inmates of psychiatric hospitals and institutions for intellectually disabled people. Usually these inmates were deceived into having the surgery.


What?


Not only people with intellectual or mental disability but also people with physical disability were deceived or virtually forced to consent to have sterilization.


The?


In case the person was a minor, sterilization was performed merely on the parent's consent, without notifying that person at all.


Fuck?


Very often these sterilizations had been performed not by tying up the fallopian tube but by hysterectomy, because the purpose of the surgery was not only sterilization but also stopping menstruation in order to make the care of the inmate women easier.


Japan?

This meeting will not be long enough to even get around to hentai with shit like this on the table.

It might also have to do with how women are still treated as inferior to men. In some countries women can't even leave their homes unless they are with a man. Even in the US, women are still treated poorly in the work force and looked down upon, especially in fields that male dominate. Maybe they are just trying to reduce the sexism since Eroge and Hentai are usually all about exposing of women.

You would think Hilter would have made people think twice about eugenics, but no. I know in the the states Oregon had a not too dissimilar program until 1981 and there was that uproar over California prison for fully sterilizing inmates.

All those people should be compensated at very least.

So basically another stance taken by the U.N. that everyone will ignore.

Umm is it just me or is this just not going to happen in general? People tried the exact same thing with the video games market when they tried depicting violence in general towards women. Guess what happened to that attempt, the people that attempted got a big F.U. and then games like GTA came out.

All that will happen from the conference is that japan will probably be nice in person and then when back at home say f off to the UN. The UN just doesn't seem to realize how big of an industry that these games/cartoons are. Not saying i agree with sexual violence against women or men(whom aren't included in this conference for no apparent reason) but i'm just saying that it won't happen, the UN will flail their arms about and Japan will just laugh at them. That is of course, if the Japanese government realizes how big of an economic impact this market has on their country themselves.

Edit:
ILuvcats, the anime is called Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai.

And yet there's otome games, bishounen and yaoi and such, if they messed with eroge and hentai they would have to mess with the female side as well otherwise there's not equality. It won't happen.

Most of the stuff on the list are legitimate issues to explore. Games and entertainment is there because people talk about it a lot and they couldn't leave it off the table. Japanese exports are still making waves around the world remember.

It may be questionable to society but, if Japan has it, I'm sure it would fall under freedom of speech. And even on the extreme off chance that there was a ban then it would only ban the sale of the violent stuff, not the vanilla and "consensual" stuff.

For me, the problem poised is proving that the consumption of sexist media will consistently propagate sexist attitudes (Because only an idiot or a mentally handicapped person would treat anyone badly because of their portrayal in a pornographic material) or worst, contribute to rape epidemics. However, one might be intrigued that the more sexual freedom of a nation, the higher quality of rights for most women, because really, a nation of people who call women whores for dressing in a tank top and some jeans is not likely to have legalized pornographic material. In fact, one might get into a dialogue about why repressing people's sexuality with threats of government intervention is a bad idea, if not repressing at all being a bad idea.

Yes, we are regressing to an extent. The name "Regressive Left" was made for that reason alone. Those are the kind of people who try to ban things (like Hentai and Eroge) and censor ideas (any idea that doesn't follow their own) because they can't handle said ideas. It's sad that this is the world we live in. It's the 21st century and people are reverting to the 12th century......
