Sweden: “Loli Manga is Child Pornography”


Swedish courts have upheld the child pornography conviction of a manga fan for possessing loli imagery on his computer, ruling that deviant art and imagination is as much a crime as actual child abuse.

The 27-year-old manga translator was previously charged with possessing child pornography based on loli pictures police found on his PC after raiding his home.

He was convicted for possessing 51 images, none of which featured actual children, and was subsequently fined.

He appealed the decision, but the court rejected his arguments that entirely fictional 2D material could not constitute child pornography.

The court did however decide that only 39 of the images constituted “child pornography,” and reduced his fine accordingly, from 26,000 krona to 5,600 krona ($850).

Sweden’s feminist-conceived sex crime laws are some of the harshest in the developed world, with definitions of rape and sexual harassment bordering on misandry, and anti-prostitution laws which criminalise buying sex whilst making selling sex perfectly legal.

This was recently highlighted in the case of Wikileaks honcho Julian Assange, charged with rape for allegedly not using a condom in a consensual sexual encounter.


In spite of these laws, crime rates in Sweden continue to increase, being some of the highest in Europe (although it has been noted that almost half of all crime in Sweden is committed by immigrants or their offspring).

Even with all these real crimes going on, Swedish authorities apparently feel the need to create additional fictional crimes and victims – although at least they are consistent in this regard.

    It's simple, just add furry ears and tails to every loli, ala Horo. I bet the court will have to undergo a nightmare before they decide whether it's child or animal abuse

    As long as the animal doesn't take harm sex with it is fully legal in Sweden, so if you're really lucky it might help.

    technically, Horo ホロたん is hundreds of years old... but even that doesn't matter. its a godamned picture of a fictional character, explain to me how a fictional character is an actual human child? if we start convicting people with fictional works, I demand they go through with it and convict every person who has written any fiction book, drawn any pictures, and/or created any movies containing violence and rape, because that is the equivalent. if they dont convict for those "offenses" then the court system is a sham and the one who wrote the law along with the prosecution are hypocrites.
    now if it was porn pics of ACTUAL kids, convict away, since its become NON-FICTION at that point.

    It should be added the majority of the Swedish population find the charges laughable and when they showed the images in court, there was a burst of laughter and ridicule at the charges. I'm Swedish btw ^^

    Beware Finlands green party and whole right wing government (yes, greens are a part of it!!!!)if they should lose their ignorance of otaku culture. But they are overly corrupted, so they can be paid to be inactive.
    "Democracy" is said to exist somewhere. I wonder...

    In Poland you go to jail for possession of loli manga, so a mere fine is not that bad. Hell, you can go to jail even for drawing a shitty picture of a child with nipples... What is more even approbation of pedophilia is punishable by law.

    your country is not the only one with such harsh interpretation of anti child porn laws.

    the number of published cases is relatively low, although i know of several cases where police (yes, police, not prosecution) have threatened legal action against manga stores and individuals if they do not hide their stash away and never let it be seen again.

    child abuse is such a taboo topic that nobody wants to stand up against conservative politicians and judges. losing means being ostracised as a paedophile, and even if you had a chance to win, there could be harsh consequences.

    it's a sad, sad world.

    Im baffled!

    I'v never thought i'd see societies reversing back to something that would only be seen in the worst history can teach or semi-fictional works such as the movie 1984 where this court literally found a person guilty what can, is and was described in the movie as a thought crime!

    That court judge(s) are a disgrace to that judicial institution and the society they legaly represent and work for, justice without bias, pre-conception and basic philosophic understanding.

    It seems that fear of the internets (and the freedoms it provites) is scaring most countries (via a paranoid and ignorant public) into becoming overly conservative. The result: Being locked up or fined for a damn drawing. Sad indeed.

    They would need a warrant to search your computer if you didn't agree to let them search and even then they would need some type of "evidence" to be able to get that warrant.

    Except when they do. Even in the US, courts are getting closer and closer to recognizing drawings as child pornography. They're already recognized in several cases where they were found alongside real child pornography. It's a slippery slope from there.

    With all due respect to the poster who said "Courts are getting closer and closer to declaring drawn porn child pornography even in the United States!"... NOOOOoOO, THEY AREN'T!

    The fact is that the ONLY laws they have gotten people under for loli are the obscenity laws (which most of them are unconstitutional on their face, no matter how the Supreme Court has ruled in the past, because some VERY salient arguments have never been brought up) or because the people in question were registered sex offenders who weren't supposed to be looking at pornography period (on this subject, talk about a way to MAKE people turn to real life children for sexual gratification!)!

    Guys, if obscenity can get you for loli then it's the same as being an anti-loli law. It's just flexible in that it can also get you for Legend of the Overfiend or Super Hornio Brothers too if they like.

    Yes, that is MAJORLY pathetic. With all due respect to these people, if a condom breaks (that is actually the issue in the Assange case) it is NOT sex by surprise, and you cannot always tell that a condom has broken, coming from my friends who actually use them.

    DING! DING! DING! We have a winner. The fact is that pedosexuality/pedophilia is just being used as a 'boogie man' for society. I hate to tell people, but most pedosexuals ASK the children who they 'molest' (a loaded, make believe term made up by feminists) if they can touch them sexually, or touch them sexually and then ask them "Can I touch you like that again?"

    Personally, when I was a child with girls, I did that latter thing quite a bit, and the girls in question NEVER called it 'molesting' unless after I asked them and they said "NO!" (never came up) I did it again!

    Since I didn't do the former, that was the girl's in question telling me that is when I would have done something wrong.

    We need to stop giving these 'abuse victims' in real life an out! They could EASILY threaten to tell their parents in order to get a person to leave them alone sexually, and most pedosexuals would.

    It's called The Netherlands.
    We have 'the' infront of it because we feel we need to be more important due to the size of our puny little country. ^^

    And I think loli hentai is legal here. I haven't heard of cases of someone being fined or anything because of it... If so, I'm fucked! D:

    This world is going down the drain.
    Isn't it also true that the countries that actually allow loli hentai have the lowest crime rates on actual child abuse and pornography possession?
    Not too sure about that though.
