Equality Now: “We Should Censor Other Countries”

kimihagu-train-chikan-ino

Anti-free speech feminist group Equality Now has earned well deserved infamy with its suppression of adult game RapeLay, but now its legal representative in Japan (the group has no actual office there) has laid out the group’s position, claiming that Japan is poisoning the world with its filth and must be stopped, something we have heard before.

She puts it as follows:

“In Japan porn is insipid, finding its way even into the homes of common folk, and there is much depiction of rape in these works. For some years now, this has been a source of concern to overseas human rights groups.”

Her statement that “human rights” groups have been concerned about these erotic works is rather dubious considering Equality Now only appears to have heard about RapeLay after a UK rag recently broke a story on it during a slow news day.

She goes on to assert that it is proper for an American feminist group to be dictating what may be published in Japan, as Japan is poisoning the rest of the world:

“[The games may be made for domestic markets, but with the Internet they might find their way overseas.] It is thus becoming more than just a national issue.”

Heaven forfend anyone anywhere does something to offend someone in another country, as by this logic self appointed international moral guardians will have every right to force their governments to arrest them by a vociferous campaign of letter writing. If only reducing the rates of sexual assault in the US was so simple…

Via Yomiuri.

Considering that the game is actually perfectly legal in the US (though clearly retailers would be leery of it), and is subject to constitutional protection in both the US and Japan, it seems odd for them not to bother pursuing a ban of it and similarly “misogynistic” games (such as GTA) in the USA first, though this inconsistency seems not to have occurred to the group.

Alternatively, it may just be that harassing a small overseas publisher is considerably less risky for the group than attempting to tackle well financed and robust US publishers who understand the stakes involved…

  • Oh lets just let the feminists take over the world already. I’m tired collecting garbage and laying bricks and railroads. Let the women do all these things while I stay at home making sammiches. How do you like them apples now eh? Dumb feminists…

    And the best part is, when I’m bored of making sammiches, I can overthrow the feminazi regime with a butter knife. Neeeehaw!!!!!!!

  • i read all of the comments i have come to this conclusion: feminazis who post here use the same arguments the get torn to shreds again and again. to those who wish to stop the equality now movement, try to start something in 4chan, like they did with Scientology. and to the people from both sides who just cuss, try to use sexism as a magic key, shut up. to those who said stuff like “get back in the kitchen” it was funny the first time. stop already.

  • This is pathetic , what are they going to do next ? Ban porn since it’s corrupting the world with it’s ‘ filth ‘ ? Let the humans be extinct then . They didn’t even take into account that some men may take it upon the other girls for revenge since the feminists banned their adult games and thus resulting in several more rape cases . Idiots

    • Yes Anon, they’ve already banned CP, and even normal porn gets banned as ‘obscene’ in some states. They want to expand it as much as possible. Look into these orgs and their members and you find strong links with anti-pornography movements who want to regress back to the times it was illegal.

  • we need to ally somewho to do the “dirty job”.

    in the future we need to create a liberated-zone ,
    do a country were otaku free , lolicon freee , downloadsss frree , knowledge freeeeee , ciencie freeee ….

    this is the country i want….

  • Dear gawd people these days. Always backing things up with belief and no one question with logic and reason…………………… Isn’t there suppose to be a reason why people are suppose to think? You can’t argue with people who follow belief blindly they should have the right of free speach stripped from them till they understand reason.

    It’s only natural for the female species to want to restrict the male species’ ability to obtain pleasure. With fewer games available to them as alternatives to the ‘real thing’, men become more desperate, competitive with each other, and willing to make greater concessions for cunt access.

    For cunts, games, images, music and anything else that can substitute for them are all enemies to be fought, freedoms to be suppressed.

      i think that’s old and sankaku already posted about it. this is about what happened later… while the game is not banned in Japan, EN still feels they have made an accomplishment by stopping illusionsoft and amazon from selling the game to potential overseas customers, and they are hoping to go further by eventually getting games like this and others banned in Japan.

  • You sexist morons supporting RapeLay. Can you pull your heads out of your asses? Games like RapeLay trivialize violence against women which is why they need to be banned. Would you tolerate it if the same kind of violence was inflicted on any other historically marginalized people?

    • Anonymous says:

      You know, I shouldn’t even have read past the word “sexist” in your post, because that just reveals right off the bat how much of a hypocrite you are. Using the word “sexist” isn’t a key that’s going to magically open any doors for you.

      and oh, WOMEN? They trivialize violence against WOMEN? That’s why they need to be banned? But just women? What about the animals? Let’s also ban Mario for jumping on turtles (jumping on a turtle in real life is not pretty, mario makes it look like fun! Kids everywhere are going to try and stomp turtles now so that they can use it’s shell to attack other enemies!). PETA would be fuming if they found out about such an atrocity. What about all those games where you can kill and/or harmless NPCs (virtual men and women) with anything from gory results to trivial results like what happens with the turtles in mario? What about Soul Calibur 4, where you can “sexualize” a male or female character to however you see fit? I bet if it only let you customize men, you wouldn’t complain, but if it just let you customize women, all hell would break loose.

      When women are specifically virtually harmed, it’s far more atrocious and must be promptly dealt with? Women need to be treated equally, which means they need to be treated more sacred than other people, creatures, and things in games, thus making things more fair and equal.

      Also yes, a man-raping game would sell. There already is at least one, which someone has shared with us in this page (or was it the last one?), and it’s still on the market.

      To top it off… ir’s VIRTUAL. IT’S A GAME. It’s purpose is not to trivialize actual rape of women. It wasn’t created for that purpose. Sane people who play rapelay can still tell the difference between virtual rape and actual rape. You’re insulting players of rapelay and such games by saying they’re not intelligent enough to play a game like that without realizing it isn’t actual rape. You’re insulting gamers by saying we can’t tell the difference between reality and virtual reality. I bet you beleive that people who enjoy rapelay also now enjoy watching rape occur in a serious film, because you beleive rapelay has made them rape hungry D:

      And if the virtual world freaks you out so much already, consider the future, when men and women everywhere will be able to virtually act out anything they want to, and far more realistically and untrivialized.

        You still don’t get it. Any person who would get enjoyment out of even the virtual brutal rape of virgin girls is not sane. Brutality and blood? WTF is your problem? Of course it’s purpose is to trivialize the brutalization of women. What other purpose could there possibly be? Entertainment? That’s pretty sick entertainment. It is not about the “difference” between virtual rape and real rape, sonny. It is porn – brutal, sadistic, hard core degrading porn. And equating women with animals surely doesn’t do your argument much good. When rape rates of men equal those of women, maybe then you will begin to get it. Maybe you could step outside your cave and take a peek at what is going on in the world, what is being done to women and girls, because they are female. Rape is one of them. Rape to prove power. Has not one single thing to do with sex, pal….it is about power. Perhaps that is why you and your buddies enjoy the game. You feel the need for power. Well, don’t we all. Most of us, however, don’t need to watch the “virtual” degradation and brutalization of a “virtual” woman and her “virtual” young, virgin daughters to feel powerful. As for your one game with “virtual” rapes of males in it…can see that it’s a big hit….sure. And to the moron who is horny – to get off watching something like this indicates some serious issues with sex and sexuality so you might want to think before you brag about it.

News flash, fellas…..teeny brains are not exactly alluring, not to mention general stupidity and ignorance. Maybe you should design a game that does to men (and boys) what Rapelay does to women and girls. Wouldn’t last a day on the open market. Jackasses.

        You two are hypocrites. You’re biased, you’ve made conclusions about us after making assumptions and generalizations, and even if someone here points out that they are female you’d probably assume they’re just male sexist chauvinistic misogynists like 100% of the rest of the people here that aren’t talking from your side.

        At least, that’s exactly what I gather from your closed minded comments. Correct me if I’m wrong… and by that I don’t just mean that you personally think I’m wrong.

      This has gotten totally ridiculous. The fact is that the feminists are not about ‘equality with men’ anymore: they are trying to push their anti-sex and anti-freedom agenda so that they can brainwash men and women into thinking that “Sex isn’t all it is made out to be!”

      These ‘feminists’ are, by and large, dykes! I hate to put it that way, but from what I have seen, they are dykes who hate men, hate any MENTION of sex, and would be happier in a world with only women!

      Feminists are ugly, at least on the inside pretty invariably when they are talking BS like this ‘Equality Now’ people are.

      The fact is that pornography KEEPS women from being raped, it doesn’t MAKE women be raped! That has been proven by so many studies over the years, that it’s time for the radical feminists to admit that and shut up.

      Ladies you know “equality now” should really mean??- Get a GUN Permit!(and a Gun). That’s equality!!

  • I agree with the Equality now group. Japan has no respect for women – so women in japan think it is okay for them to be dumb b/c they just have to find a rich men and suck up to them and get married to them, have children, raise children.
    i mean come on…and too much fudged up stuff on tv too- they talk about filth on national tv and they think it’s ok. they subject women as some tool or object

    • Anonymous says:

      why do you assume that it’s specifically women thinking it’s ok to be dumb as a result of men ignoring them? What if it’s men ignoring women because BECAUSE they beleive they’re dumb?

      A lot of people here say they prefer 2D women over real life women, and for many different reasons.

      Though sane people can tell the difference between a woman on TV and women in real life. That’s why they PREFER the women on TV. If they couldn’t tell the difference then they’d be ok with real women! lol

      But this is speaking very simplistically and with generalizations. I’m just trying to show that your point can be easily countered.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re right.

    Games like this pollute the mind of people and create rapists ready attack anyone in the shadows, I tell you. What’s even worse, they portray a woman getting comfortable with such violent treatment over time. You can turn any woman into a sex slave, just keep violating her until she starts begging for your semen because women are sluts by nature and they live for a dick no matter how hard they try to fit in the society… seriously, what’s up with that? That’s totally fucked up.

    What’s the future of a guy that plays stuff like this? Being a violent husband? A rapist? A sore loser that will never have real sex his entire life masturbating to porn games? You decide.

      some people that play eroge games can have sex with real people, they can also be married and have children. On the other end, people that have children and have been married to someone for many years and seem otherwise normal and good and don’t even own a sexy picture on their computer can turn out to be a child rapist. Your friendly neighbor who you love to chat with every day could one up raping a child one day! You should probably make sure you don’t get stupid and ask someone like that to rake your leaves for you one day, or they could end up going from your lawn to your living room when you’re not looking and could rape someone you love! Quick, build electric fences that separate everyone’s homes from everyone else’s, just in case!

      PRIEST have turned out to be rapists of little boys, more than once! Stop taking your kids to church, they might end up getting raped!

      Saying Rapelay can even potentially lead someone to rape a woman is absolutely pointless.

      yup, and little boys who play cops and robbers will all grow up to be either cops.. OR ROBBERS :O but either way, they’ll both end up just shooting at each other all the time while yelling “BANG! BANG!”

    • Wow, this argument is so terrible I don’t even know where to begin. By that logic every game we play should turn us into a real life representation of that game. I am playing Mercenaries 2 right now…I have 0 urge to go and attack Venezuela. Well, there goes your logic out the window. Do try again.

      • Chris speaks truth.

        Using your argument, anon, that means all people who play FPS games are prone to cause high school shootouts. That means people who play fighting games are more likely to get into school fights, etc.

        In reality, this doesn’t happen. Why? Because normal, sane, mentally stable individuals can SEE THE DIFFERENCE between reality and fantasy. As supposedly deplorable as rape is (even though I think murdering others using a gun is far more deplorable since you can’t take back a human life), it’s being practiced in a fantasy game.

        Do remember Japan has a LOWER case of rapes per capita than the U.S.. You ever wonder why that’s the case? Yes, some of the rapes go unreported in Japan because women are supposedly taught to “just take it”, but I’m fairly sure that Japan would *still* be placed at a lower ranking than the U.S. if we account for the unreported rape cases for BOTH countries.

        Despite the unreported cases from both countries, Japan’s still able to control its otaku (who is probably the demographic for this game and many games like it) from shoving penises into anything that has a vagina. Ever wonder why that’s the case?

      We need those action figure to be made and distributed among the young so they can learn the truth and can treat properly the womens.

    • Simple; they’re a bunch of pussies who only can focus and aim at a small pr0n company. If Illusion Soft consists of gun slinging and katana wielding Yakuza staffs, i’m pretty sure EN wouldn’t even want to attack nor criticize them.

        • Simple; they’re a bunch of pussies who only can focus and aim at CRIME-FREE pr0n companies. If ALL HENTAI COMPANIES AND DEVELOPERS (INCLUDING ERO MANGAKA, HENTAI ARTISTS AND DOUJINKA) consists of gun slinging and katana wielding Yakuzas, i’m pretty sure EN wouldn’t even want to attack nor criticize them.

          Happy now?

    • It’s because that is a real issue. It’s much MUCH easier to bitch about works of fiction that have zero actual negative impact on reasonable and stable individuals. Games are an easy target because all you have to do is say “OMG IT HURTS THE KIDS” or some similar soccer-mom rallying cry and you will get your way because no company wants that sort of publicity and therefore gives in. And for the few that do decide to fight it, they lose because there is no reasoning with these types of groups.

    Gender Equality? There is no such a word… people just get too serious about “Male” and “Female”. They are just different. It’s true that the social structures and bullshitty human’s idea (evolved from animal’s community) brought both genders to their troubling fates. Many things can’t be undone… plus, there are many more important issues… instead of challenging who is the better at domination… can’t they just help each other? There are many things males can’t do. There are many things females can’t do. What both genders need now is not “Equality” but “Compromise”. However, true compromise may be just a dream.

  • Idiots.
    Though I can see why they wouldn’t attack the people who made GTA. Just look at what happened to Jack Thompson when he tried to attack them and other publishers.
    …On second thought, I wish they would. I foresee an epic fail in their future.

    We need political power, someone that fights in the name of the freedom of expression.
    Attract the media and face “Stupidity Now” in their own territory, exercise the power of the organized opposition and crush them in their own game!

    • Anonymous says:

      I believe this is important. For all the outrage here and other places, the fact remains that these feminazis actually manage to 1) congregate in an organized group and 2) amass some form of political will towards supressing freedom of speech and expression *outside* of their own borders. This makes them dangerous and threating to any real equality or even basic freedoms.

      The question now is, where do we go to organize and collectively air our grievances in a systematic fashion, and where it actually has political clout? We need an actual organization ourselves to combat this nonsense these neo-fascists are spewing. The fight has gone way beyond just one game and one company now.

  • These feminist and children activist groups don’t have much regard for the Constitution or civil liberties so they seek to do an ends around them by pushing for international laws that subvert domestic law. A prime example is this CEDAW law that is making its way as we speak in the U.S. Senate.

    “This Is No Time to Go Wobbly: After 29 years, Senate ratification of the CEDAW treaty is still a terrible idea.”

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/016/396tcoin.asp

    • I do want to point out to others that the Weekly Standard is a ‘true’ conservative site. I personal am on the left for most issues. However, the information at this site is reasonable and well researched, compared to that of Faux News, though I disagree with the opinions of a lot of their other articles.

      This isssue however is one I believe I can definitely agree with – the CEDAW is *way* too broad. I’m all for women’s rights, but I’d rather legislation be passedon specific women’s rights issues, rather than something like passed, because it will make it way too easy to feminazis (not true feminists) to justify civil lawsuits by pointing to it and going “SEE? THEY VIOLATED DIS. GIMME MAH MONEY!” Reminds me too much of the DMCA and how badly the RIAA/MPAA has been abusing it.

  • I’m all for respecting women and treating and hating everyone equally, but for some odd reason…I FUCKING HATE feminists. The just urk the hell outta me. I think they need a dick up their ass; this I can do!

  • I’m seriously concerned about the amount of power this group is getting. Although freedom of speech is a right here in the states, I honestly think it should be a human right for the rest of the world. Equality Now! is doing (a much less toned down version) of what the Bush Administration is doing by sticking their heads into OTHER COUNTRIES’ BUSINESS and dictating what’s acceptable or not and by acting like we’re the Mommy of the world.

    We’re doing what we can do undo all of what was done in the past 8 years, but feminazi conservative groups like Equality Now needs to be fucking kept in check. If they win more and more of these international lawsuits, it’s only a matter of time before they bring it back into the states and cause a commotion over here. Seriously, I’m wondering if it’s possible we can get the ACLU involved in this issue.

    I wish I had some legal experience to do so, but this extremist group (which I think is in the same veil as the neoconservative far right and the far left Greenpeace treehuggers) needs to be stopped here in the states before these feminazis infringe upon the rights of American citizens. Next thing you know, they’re going to be calling a ban on females in fighting games or whine about how GTA IV is absolutely deplorable for allowing you to buy hookers.

    Seriously, if anyone has any legal experience, they’ve got to be violating SOMETHING with their attempt at being the Mommy of the world, aren’t they?

    • Anonymous says:

      For starters, if they pulled this off in the US, they’d be guilty in no uncertain terms of violating the 1st Amendment. Make no mistake.

      Not only are they trying to deny those rights, they are insolent and insensitive enough to bully another sovereign nation and indeed a different culture altogether that perhaps understands proper social structures better than they do — a brief comparison of the crime rates alone shows this.

      At this point, they’re just getting off on bullying others and feeling important over nothing, which is their entire goal, seeing as they can’t and haven’t done anything redeeming and of substance, like help solve war hunger or deliver some form of aid to disaster-stricken areas of the globe.

      You’re assuming that these people in this thread are all assuming that all women are horrible. Most people here are directing their attacks on the women IN THIS GROUP, Equality Now (though, one thing you can point out here is though, is that not everyone in EN is probably a woman). If someone says “cunts!”, they’re referring to those specific women, not women in general. In fact, next to no one has directed attacks toward women in general (and even if they did it probably wasn’t serious), though some have generalized FEMINISTS, and even then most people use the word FEMINAZI to narrow down who they’re referring to.

      Women are very welcome here. In fact, women coming here should be incouraged.

      Also let it be noted, there are women already here, and even feminists, who aren’t/wouldn’t hold back on wanting to call these EN women/people something unsavory.

    • It’s not misogyny, it’s just that many people here are extremely pissed off and vent their anger in saying things that sadly come across as misogynistic. It’s a grave misunderstanding to think women are not wanted here. The only characteristic you must have in order feel at home here is an interest in anime, manga, H, and/or the occasional weird news.

  • KajunBowser says:

    These recent events have just lit the fuse on my rage cannon. I’m effin’ sick and tired of these groups that seem to have some sort of self-righteous, misguided and probably politically motivated actions of this [In]Equality Now group. Haven’t women in most of the civilized world have equal rights anyway, of course not counting certain countries where ancient law still have women under men’s thumbs. They go after a raep simulation eroge from a country that has the lowest rate of any G20 nation in raeps, that also has regulations on porn and hentai that make sure no one of invalid age gets to them, let alone makes it a pain in the arse to get the stuff outside the country. Upon that, they do this in a country where laws have been established that protect women to the point where women can use the laws to frame some unsuspecting shmuck on a crowded subway car, and will hunt down a weird-looking guy for asking some little girls for directions.

    The thing is, they feel empowered being from a country that lieks the “change” that’s going around and they want to impose it on other countries, with whom we have friendly relationships with (for now). They have clearly overstepped the name of their organization in trying to get RapeLay pulled from some store, if not banned. Then, after this alligator tears-induced victory, it goes straight to their heads. Remember, there are responsible feminists groups, and then there are feminazis like [In]Equality Now. These groups are the enemy of real free speech worldwide, slowly spreading a “soft tyranny” like venom flowing through the veins after a snakebite. It’s time for everyone that loves the freedom of doing as they please (within reason), regardless of race, religion, nationality or political affiliation to start kicking arse for it, starting with this “equality” group.

    • Female equality is pretty much established in North Korea (as it’s a communist country). They even have mandatory military service for females. What North Korea lacks is respect for human rights in general.

      Also, Equality Now does run projects on real and important issues (like eradicating the practice of female genital mutilation in Africa). Which makes it even sadder that they had to pick a fight with freedom of expression.

      Though maybe you’re being series, I’d like to think people who comment like that are just being silly and trying to make a joke (although a stale, old, and overused one). But it’s really kind of counterproductive to say things like that either way (especially cuz it’s not really funny anymore). These feminists have helped out people in the past that were in situations that needed their help. They’re human, have rights (to live, especially), deserve to have their opinions, and are most likely acting out of well intentioned beliefs, as much as many of us would hate to admit it. The only kind of things that should be ridiculed here is their misjudgment, possible bias, hypocrisy, and resulting actions in this case.

    Why don’t you try reading something written by a feminist?
    Feminism is not you’re enemy. Feminism has been slandered and discredited by the misogynistic forces its been trying to undo. Do you honestly think there is no bias in this article? Maybe, just maybe these sorts of simplistic, emotional, polarizing straw man depictions of feminism are the problem.

    • Obviously there will be many here who don’t take this seriously enough to keep their exaggerated comments and “tit for tat”, “eye for an eye” views under control. This is sankaku, a place that usually pokes fun at news and the silliness behind it. A lot of people that use words like “whores” and “bitches” are just failing at trying to be funny, or are just too pissed to think properly to realize that they’re not helping by saying things like that.

      But you’re no better for generalizing all of us. A lot of us are respecting their right to be feminists and to have their own views and we’re respecting them as fellow humans, but we’re just calling them out on their actions which are directly effecting us. Even if our commenting here has to effect on these feminists, maybe they’re not even reading these comments at all and are even deleting any emails that oppose them on sight, but we have a right to be here and share and express our views, hopefully at least spreading some awareness and teaching others. There are some useless comments here, but I think most people can tell easily between a comment that shouldn’t make a difference if you read or not, and one that deserves a fair chance.

        Can’t tell if you’re trolling or truly indignant, but either way, you’re a fool to think all of us don’t realize that all news carry a bias. I mean…Jesus Christ, the article is on a site that bases its traffic on people interested in Japanese culture and other similar topics, how can it not carry a bias? Same can be said for all other news sources.

        Some of us, if not most of us, do check our sources and what we’re up against before discussing it.

        We have no idea what feminism is about? We know full well that feminism is a movement created to improve females’ status/lifestyle in their area on a local level, and other areas on a global level.

        Maybe if such extremists didn’t make such a foolish claim that these games increase rape incidences, feminism would be better received eh?

        tl;dr: Stfu and get off your high chair because men are just as affected negatively by feminism as women are by misogynism. That is why some are against it and that is why I bash it when it rises to such extreme and relatively useless levels. Really, who cares about games when there’s more important issues at hand? There’s not even a positive link between games’ themes and the incidence rates of their related themes.

      Also, rape fantasy (note: fantasy) has been a staple of BDSM ever since the dawn of humanity. There are a lot of people who like BDSM, both male and female, so it’s quite obvious that erotic fiction dealing with that theme is quite popular. You don’t even need to be into BDSM to like rape fantasy, you just have to have a thing for hard sex.

      It’s perfectly fine if you don’t like it. Firstly, you are in the majority there, and secondly, you are entitled to your own likes and dislikes.

    Any group that calls itself a feminist group is not bothered with equality.

    Feminism is just sexism, with female superiority in mind. It doesn’t matter what justification you put to it, in the end it’s just another form of sexism. Whenever a woman says “Whatever men can do, women can do as well” may be right, but whenever they say “women can do better” you’ll know who you’re dealing with – a liar and a sexist.

    Giving them the time of day is important though, because you can see what ignoring the whole movement has done.(you can see it in this post by Artefact)

      exactly, they can’t call themselves “equality now” and then proceed to call themselves “feminists”. That’s like assuming in all cases that women are less equal to men, all over the world, and that in order to achive equality we need to help out women to get their equal rights. They can’t see that there are cases the world over where gender has nothing to do with the lack of equality and rights. What about fighting for equal right for poor people versus rich people? In India there are male and female untouchables that can’t do things that shouldn’t require them to be more wealthy. Feminists only fight for other women, not for the equality of all people, and it’s easy to assume that they hold a bias towards women in all cases even when it’s the woman at fault.

    Reducing the rates of sexual assault has NOTHING AT ALL to do with the availability or prevalence of erotic literature or entertainment media. Numerous studies have proven this.

    If porn is supposed to be inducing horndogs to rape and pillage at will, then why is it that countries with less stringent laws governing adult entertainment media have sexual assault rates that are so much lower than those of the US? The folks at Equality Now are likely mum about facts that contradict their agenda.

    • Who cares about sexual assault?

      The Bible’s opinion of a man raping an unmarried,unbetrothed young female is that he marries her, doesn’t divorce her, and pays the father the bride price.

        There should Never be an open call or justification for ‘killing’ of any group or it’s members. While your anger is clearly presented so it your unbiased hatred. There is NO Excuse for this. It means the Feminist ‘win’ and you lose your cred & argument- no way around that. Are we clear?

Thus destroying their powerbase, goals, rcruitments, and effect on anything!- Right? attack the policy, ideals, or belief systems – NEVER the Person individually. It’s NOT personal- it’s a intensive cerebral debate over Ideals.

        Killing the messenger only creates ‘Martyrs’ who inspire others to continue what You were trying to kill- That is NOT effective and as you may already know is considered a “Threat of Harm” and could be considered ‘Hate Speech’- You Lose MikeeUSA!!

        It takes patience, skill, moxie, and education to KILL the thoughts, beliefs, and ideals of others- it’s ideological Darwinism at it’s finest! There is never a justification for actually “Killing” another with whom you disagree with ideologically. Never. Are we we clear? I don’t want to see you bring ‘shame’ to males, women, this topic, Sankaku Com, or Artefect with that ‘angry kill’ & Bible justification nonsense. It’s a debate! not a bonfire! (I ask that ‘Others’ for the sake of Artefect & your fellow posters keep an Eye on this “Type of Speech” as we are ‘all adults’ right?)

          In other areas it is useless. Men have been talking quietly about women’s rights and why such is bad for generations. They have done nothing but graduate from quiet discussion to slightly louder discussion through their productive lives (and then they die, out of steam, with nothing to show for any of it.)

          Let us start as a slightly more useful position: perhaps then we shall not graduate from quiet useless talk to less constrained useless talk; but rather from chatter with no constraints and no “reason” to action, achievement, accomplishment: the long awaited destruction of our enemies and the reacendancy of Man over all.

    I wish these feminazi would at least try to combine solid research with lawful methods, as oposed to cyber bullying and propaganda. Seriously, their entire movement is based on the fact, that men dominate over women, which of course hasn’t been true for many years in the entire world, save for few countries in Asia.

    I have no respect for people who complain about being oppressed over a trait, which they themselves use as an excuse to demand special privileges. This is the equivalent to a Jewish person complaining that all white people are nazi and demanding to have special rights granted by law over them. Hypocrisy much, ね? We certainly don’t see black people go on the streets and cry how unjust the world is to them, even through they face far more discrimination (esp. in the USA), than them.

    This case is starting to get sillier by the second. First they bully a publisher, than use that success to force their opinion on an entire nation. And the reason is what… that other societies are getting influenced?

    So dear feminazi… um…. any proof? Surely you aren’t making unreasonable demands from a whole nation based on your biased views… no, no don’t bother answering. I know the routine. “Waaa! Men oppress us” -> “US congress accepts bill”.

    Doesn’t it ever occur to anyone, that allowing any law to difference between “man” and “woman” is sort of.. you know… discriminating? But just try telling that to one of the harpies and see what happens:
    http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-4943148856068315400&q=Men%27s+Rights

    • The arguments in that video are so damn pointless. As soon as that situation comes up, it shouldn’t become a question of all MEN versus all WOMEN. It’s the problem of the two individuals who entered into the problem together. People always assume in a situation like that that it was the MAN who is responsible for having sex with the woman… what if it was the woman who first made the sexual advance?? Maybe it’s her fault she got pregnant at first. Was she raped? If not then she’s just as responsible for the sex that happened as she consented to it, and in the end it’s really both parties that are equally responsible. Furthermore, some men in that situation WANT the kid to be born, and likewise some women would want the kid to be aborted even though the man wants it. Ultimately it’s between those two people, it’s not a question of rights and outside people interfering and men VS women.

      Men’s rights movements are fucked up too. Feminists, Males rights, they all suck. It’s the people in between that get screwed over for their fucked up actions. And if anyone argues that those groups, like the feminists, can help out in a case where someone is truly being oppressed, well honestly you don’t need to be a feminist to help out in those situations, but you are being bias and focusing on one kind of problem that way. You help girls in rape cases that received no justice, but what about boys? What about that case in America recently where a teenage girl (17 or something) seduced and fucked 2 older men and then took them to court for it? Care for EVERYONE’S RIGHTS, and the truth, and realize that anyone could be the wrongdoer in any situation, make or female, or else your group is pointless!

    They need to get this newsflash: there are much more and far more unsavory porn created by people all over the world and shared with others for free ALL OVER the internet. Don’t they feel they’re battling for a lost cause? What a waste of time if there ever was one, and pissing off a ton of people while doing it.

    They’re absolute, total block heads. They’ve made their decision and nothing can change it, that’s just how closed minded the members of this group are. Why don’t they think for a second about why no one in Japan has succeeding in doing anything about it? Or if Japan is actually worse off because of it? Have they ever looked at anything from more than one angle before? Do they let information into their brains that can go against their “CODE”?

      s\
      But no, it’s not like there’s no other porn industry that’s very widespread on the internet; it’s not like there’s no competitors in the porn industry that are waiting for another competitor to fall so they can move into their territory; and most importantly of all, it’s not like there’s a myriad of dedicated people/servers/backup servers that can easily restore the supply of Japanese porn that might be shut down.

    Has anyone actually looked at some of their actions in other countries on their site? The format of their articles are sad as hell.

    E.g. from most recent: http://www.equalitynow.org/english/wan/action_daterev_en.html

    specifically: http://www.equalitynow.org/english/actions/action_3201_en.html (but trust me, a lot, if not all, the articles on the same source page follow the same format with varying ratios)

    They are essentially starting off all their articles with an anecdotal appeal to their readers emotions; that already indicates a crappy article trying to bring in more people. Their ratio of writing is essentially 3/4 anecdotal appeals to people’s emotions with no statistics given on actual crimes committed to cause this countermeasure. 1/5 of article may have statistics or just act as their transition to their proposal. 1/9th actually states what they have tried to do to reduce cause that made them act. And at the bottom of each under “recommended actions” are general requests that are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to enforce. They don’t even cite statistical sources.

      The real problem is that Feminism is not a unified moviment. Yes, there are a few enlightened feminists out there. They’re the only ones who lives to the legacy of the real feminists of the late 19th century.

      The problem is that fat moral sex-negative Christians, radical lesbians (read this Atma, I’m not generalizating all lesbians), decided to adhere to the title of “feminist”, just because they do what THEY believe is the best for all females. That is a form os fascism: You impose what you believe what is right among all people of a group, just because you think you are more right than the other beliefs of other groups.

    • And on that note I think we should make a masculinist group to empower men and defend free thought from feminist! Maybe ban romance books as they depict men in cases we cannot provide causing us to be looked down upon :O

  • Why the hell they put so much afford to pull them down? Just mind your own business since the game in right under constitutional protection in both the US and Japan.

    This is a case of international bullying! About the sex culture in Japan well it’s their way of life.

  • Seriously, nowadays feminists are really turning me into a misogynist. Pretty much every damn hot steamed shit that comes out with their words makes me feel like an aspiring wife beater.

    Can’t they just shut the fuck up, and stop lying about seeking fucking equality when it’s pretty clear that they only want superiority?

    It’s kind of ironic how they’re sure not helping their cause that way.

      “Seriously, nowadays feminists are really turning me into a misogynist.”

      Excuses, excuses. If you really were annoyed by the fact that they were retarded bullies you’d be pissed off at them, not women in general. It’s the equivalent of being pissed off at Inko-chan and yet wanting to snap the necks of all talking birds because of it. Or being pissed off at the KKK and wanting to beat up all “whites” because of it. Or because you met a few dozens of Jews you were annoyed with and want to make all Jews suffer. (Whee, Godwin’s Law)

      What you’re doing is exactly what the morons are doing, too. “Argh these rapist men are making me hate men. They only want superiority and power yet lie about wanting equality. Fuck them all! They shall all suffer, even for the things they as individuals did not do nor support!!!”
      You’re not helping your cause either.

      This kind of “feminists” are called femnazis for a very good reason, you know.

      • I assure you your statement is false, my dear Anon. it’s because they start from the point of being omni-potent that they go for feminism. I’ve worked under a feminist which kept insulting me and the rest of the male workers because we were incapable of anything, we were lazy and didn’t care about anything and men are useless and only women are able to do something useful in the world and blablabla. I quit as soon as i could.

  • Sex crime rate against minor is low in Japan…why then should Japan shoulder the blame for the rising sex crime rate against minor in US and UK?… Does this prove that ppl in these countries are more easily influenced by the Hentai and AV content….???

    • The West can be easily swayed by such frivilous media (as much any other country) especially by News with just the word ‘justice’ i.e Iraq and Tibet or like the whole Maddy kidnapping, sure I feel bad for the parents but it’s not like they’re the only ones in this situation and there are far worse scenarios. Yet they get full blown coverage and everything. Same with Jade Goody, she’s not the only one with cancer for crying out loud. But it begs the question is it the people who are easily sheeped? Or are governments and news networks very good at mainpulating people. Still you need to be very, very, very mentally challanged to have difficulty seperating real and ‘not real’ to begin with. It seems it’s something the West has a affinity to though, which is blaming and criminalizing other countries for their own problems. To shift the eyes to someone else.

      If these desperate hags against ‘Free-Speech’ and for ‘Inequality’ want to go on facts and evidence then the international crime stats purely show how misplaced their priority is. They just genuinely can’t go up against big shot companies like ‘Rock Star’ because they know that their arguements is filled with complete BS also it’s Western, as opposed to foreign countries. The FACT that they can’t do shit to actually help real women in their own country being nothing more than a shell or shadow of the real Feminists in the past who actually made great accomplishments for EQUAL RIGHTS and never to come close to what they achieved. Give them props for picking a stage name like ‘Equality Now’, any retard would instantly think that’s what they are about…What a load of fudgepacks. They’re nothing but bullies who’s attentaive to force their illogical, bias, hypocritical beliefs on everyone until they have an steel grasp of how people should think. People like these moralfags should go set themselves on fire and die in a ditch.

      More like, the lack of an outlet for a sexual attraction towards minors result in real cases of rape happening. Where such legal and harmless outlets exist, these things have less tendency of happening in real life. It’s kind of like legalizing alcohol (remember Prohibition), prostitution or marijuana. If there is a legal outlet, no matter how unlike the real thing it is or how the ‘kick’ isn’t as strong, people would still be less inclined to take on the risks of the real deal. Since there is a legal one, why go through all that risk? But if there is no legal outlet….

  • I no longer see these people as women trying to give the rest of us a bad name by being snotty about having it their way; I seem them as fascists who won’t be happy until they can police our thoughts. Think of porn? You get whipped. Think of fapping? You get whipped. Watch or own or download porn? Get thrown in the slammer.

    It’s human nature to want to fuck and fap. We have high sex drives and are one of the few animals that enjoys how their reproductive process feels. Maybe if they sat down and gave it a try they’d relax and enjoy themselves.

    Someone needs to seriously sit down and just stomp them flat. I want porn. I like porn. If they don’t want me to have it, too bad, the law mentioned protect me from people like them, but I guess the constitution and bill of rights and similar documents in other countries are good enough for them. They can hate it and not use it all they want to, but if they come knocking on my door, you can bet there’s going to be a war over my personal business.

    I officially ban them from being associated with my gender and hope their cold, black hearts grow to love and accept, but at this rate, I doubt they’ll even have anything resembling a heart very soon.

    Women’s rights, my ass. These girls are just douches on a moralfag crusade. If they really cared, they’d fight real rape, not rape of a CG model or graphite drawing that -doesn’t even exist- but it’s obvious they don’t.

    The only time being a girl is hard is when I have these idiots running the show and giving the rest of us bad stereotypes.

    • >Think of porn? You get whipped. Think of fapping? You get whipped. Watch or own or download porn? Get thrown in the slammer.

      They see porn as something keeping men away from them. “I can’t get laid, where are all the good men?! I BET THEY’RE MASTURBATING TO THOSE GOD DAMN CHINESE CARTOONS! If we get them banned, I’m sure they’ll see our way of things and finally submit to us. Spoilers: so ronery ;_; lol.

      • Them being bitches and picky are keeping them from being laid methinks.

        I’m 25 male and a virgin and I don’t really want to be. Granted I am somewhat picky in the sense I don’t want annoying bitches.

        That and I am apparently insane for wanting them to actually show some fucking initiative.

        Granted I’m also anti social as hell so maybe that has something to do with it too.

        Mainly I just think most people regardless of gender are too fucking picky when it comes to partners.

      I’m sure that not all of the members of this feminist group are women, as being a woman is not a requirement of being a feminist. In fact I’m sure some of the people defending the banning or rapelay in the comments of the last stories were male. Great post, though.

      I don’t personally associate them with feminism or females anyways. They’re no different from the devout religious asshats or attention whoring politicians out there. These are just another group of fools that want to force their opinions and morals on others. Close minded individuals who don’t take the time to fully understand something before taking action on it. Ultimately, this has got nothing to do with gender or even equality of people.

      Their first mistake was calling themselves “Equality now” and “feminists” at the same time. A person who truly wants equality doesn’t call focus on one group but should be constantly open to helping all groups who are being oppressed by something. Would they fight for our equality? Our rights to fap to the fetishes we want to without harming even a fly?

For my “Women in Film” class I actually wrote a 10 page paper in support of “The Male Gaze” (The Male Gaze is Laura Malveys theroy of how men objectify women)- I toke the LEADING proponent of Feminist Film Theroy and made her Thesis “Pro-Male” and used Anime, Comic-Book Heroines, and TV starlets as my examples of “Strong Independent Confident Women” to be admired by Boys & Girls…and I got an “A”.

        • Gantz, you ever been on the-niceguy forums? Haha.

          Yeah seriously, feminists have poisoned western society for forty years now, and it’s gotten to the point where they’ve achieved “market saturation” in the states and now feel the need to spread elsewhere.

          Feminism was originally about equality, but once they achieved it, what was left was an organization with no purpose… And the number one rule of any organization, corporation, (and this filters down to individual people too) is survival. Women have all the rights of men you say? Well, time to give them more rights. They’ve got more rights? Time to limit men’s rights. Favour women in divorce court, family court, sexual based crime proceedings, anywhere they can get a foothold. Anything that can be lobbied, lobby for it.

          Feminism has essentially become an organism, living off the government that’s passing all these laws for them. The reason why they stay relevant is that politicians believe that they represent 50% of the population – aka all women. Of course, any politician that doesn’t co-operate gets branded as a misogynist, someone who want’s to “put women in the kitchen”, “take away their rights” etc.

          Seriously, this shit has gone on long enough. It’d be nice if women themselves realize how in the long run, this will only fuck them over. I’m not going to hold my breath on that though… The average women seems to think that feminism is really about it’s original cause – equality – when it’s current purpose is nothing but misandry, scare tactics and continuing it’s own existence.
