A. It's not pedophilia and B.It's just fiction. Until there are thought police then any sort of thinking is allowed. Thinking and doing are two different things.

Pedophilia: Sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object.

The key word is "preferred." I don't think most pedophiles are attracted to women at all. They may pretend to be to hide what they are but their preferred attraction is with children. One could argue that they're ONLY attracted to children. I'm no psychologist though and that's getting into deeper water than my intellect and knowledge on the subject can tread. Thinking a loli is cute is not the same thing as having a sexual attraction to children. I find a lot of loli's adorable but NOT in a sexual way. I do not find children to be sexually attractive. Children are to be guided, protected and taught. Not abused, used and hurt.

Let's take two sexual examples. If a man roleplays with his wife and she pretends to be a catholic school girl complete with the uniform that does NOT make the man a pedophile. If a couple pretends to be father and daughter while roleplaying that is still not pedophilia. It might be a bit weird and maybe creepy to some but at the end of the day they are two consenting adults. They are adults who may be experimenting or living out a certain sexual fantasy and there's NOTHING wrong with that. They are doing it in a positive and constructive manner. I imagine a lot of adult males probably find some teenagers attractive. There are some beautiful girls out there but that still doesn't make them a pedophile. Thinking someone is pretty or even attractive is not the same as molesting them. Having fantasies and acting out on those fantasies are two different things so one is free to fantasize all they want about loli's. At the end of the day it's just a harmless fantasy unless they try and make that fantasy a reality and then you have a problem.

See Midir4000's post on this topic. They explained it much more eloquently than I ever could.

Because it's just a drawing. If you explore the yaoi and hentai genre, you will probably die of shock if you think sexualizing loli is so bad.

Honestly, people are becoming so "self-righteous" and moral-cop like, that anything you do will become demonized. It's very annoying. It's similar to moral cops that police your racist jokes or gay jokes. I mean, who in the world hasn't fantasized about sleeping with a hot teacher they liked in high school? People demonize teacher-student relationships, but reality is, most of us want one ourselves. Sure discourage it, but to act all high and mighty and demonize a concept (that you probably want for yourself) is just hypocritical and stupid.

There's that stupid justification again.

"Don't worry, I don't like child bodies, it's just a cartoon guys!"

Yeah no. Reality or Fiction, you're pleasuring yourself to the body of a child.


I find pleasure in murdering people in video games.

I guess a shit ton of people are sickos by that standard.



Man, the logic is real. I'm amused by the people like this that can't separate fiction and reality.---but let's be honest, it's because such a position isn't about rationality, it's about intolerance.

Loli as its called. I dont wanna google check if i spelled it wrong so..

Either way, if thats ok then i am promoting bestiality as ok. And i can prove it, mares are in heat, they bump into you. It means consent. Therefor bestiality should be legal.

Notice i am joking. But i don't get why it exists? Like why do some promote it?. Its afterall abuse.


If you are talking about mainstream anime, then there are very few instances of characters under the stated age of 13 involved in sexual activity. If you are talking hentai anime/manga, then there is plenty of bestiality in addition to loli, from tentacle rape and fictional beasts to common beasts such as a dog. Then there is that strange line with part beast/part human (furries). Regardless, it is fiction. The ink on paper doesn't need consent, neither do the bits of data for computer graphical images, neither does the imagination that was used to put the ink or bits of data into a fictional form of a loli engaged in sexual activity. Since at no point was there a need for consent, it doesn't matter. It isn't the same as child pornography, which started from a point where consent was needed and could not be given, due to age of consent requirements.

When did cartoons become sentient and develop emotions? How can you tell if a drawing is underage without a birth certificate? What about when whole countries are destroyed in an anime, are the artists charged with mass murder?

People need to worry about all the evil stuff that goes on in real life before they worry about the health and safety of cartoons.

I love all aspects that anime has to offer. Besides, scientifically speaking people have less desire to commit crime as long as there is substitution for it as shown with most video games. Substitution being an outlet for personal stress or maybe even fetishism. If there are 100 guys playing GTA or Red Dead Redemption under one roof, how many of them might actually commit a murder or another serious crime? Chances are high that a majority of them will be dedicated gamers because of games like those. Some of them may never even purchase a gun in their lifetime.

You can say the same for anime. How many who dedicate themselves that much into anime will even commit such serious acts? Chances are likely slim. You won't see a lot of people just suddenly pick up a katana and start slashing at people or look at a rape scene and be like "Hmmm, I have to try that!" Much less will they ever be coerced into something with under-aged girls (or pets, as you said too). With the less strict laws regarding sexual conduct than in most countries, you would think Japan would have the highest amount of sexual crimes. No, clearly that is reserved for the US. This is why we are so critical now of anything depicted sexually even for other countries, because we have this mentality that we are doing favors. Our own sense of morality. A drawing of a person or thing should be much less offensive than that of the actions of real life.

It's because Japanese cartoonists weird sense of humor lately and the authorities don't care. This loli and shouta junk that's going on is one of the reasons I barely watch modern cartoons/anime. I prefer cartoons with better humor, that is, no toilet humor, pedophillia, ecchi, bullying, whatever.

Crazy bastards are crazy, watching violent shows don't make them any more nutty than they already are. It may give them something to try and blame or an excuse to try and explain their behavior after they are caught, but they are well, crazy. All crime existed before anime, movies, tv, even books. The difference between then and now is that we have the internet and news media that love to publish this stuff for the views$$ and clicks$$. We also have a few billion more people alive now, which means millions more crazy people out there than used to be.

So if a witch is 10 and she is in reality 110 years old, then its ok. Yeah i can see how this will fuel acceptance. Might aswell start NAMBLA/NAWBLA 2.0 to say fictional works is ok aslong as its not real life. And by that i am just joking.

Click/troll bait threads on the crunchyroll forums? Surely you jest.

If you're talking about an anime character who is a pedophile then even depicting that character expressing his or her infatuation with children isn't necessarily going into censored territory.

I may be in the minority but I don't really agree with lolis and it usually ruins a story or manga for me but people are free to do whatever they please as long as it doesn't interfere or harm another individual.
