A piece offering advice to ladies who find themselves suspecting their partners of being creepy lolicon is currently proving immensely inflammatory amongst online lolicon.
The piece, by “adult writer” and “feminism researcher” Mikako Kikuchi, author of such incisive classics as “The Weird Fetishes Men Have”:
What’s the definition of a lolicon anyway!?
“Lolicon describes the sexual disposition of men who are sexually attracted to young girls. Those who like girls under 13 are generally described with the term ‘pedophilia.’”
Girls under 13 would basically be elementary schoolers. These days they grow precociously, and despite only being in the last years of elementary school there are many who are young in face but very much ripe in body. Perhaps this is why there are lolicon.
Why do men become lolicon?
“It’s said that men have a lower mental age than women, isn’t it? It’s also said that men select girls who more closely match their mental age. Also, as animals men have the objective of siring descendants. Men unconsciously select lively young things who look as if they can bear them healthy offspring with minimal risk.”
Men’s lolicon tendencies come from their desire for progeny, it would seem. A woman with a lolicon boyfriend may have no choice but to accept this.
I can enjoy lolicon together with my man!?
“Women stuck with a lolicon boyfriend may be able to cope by enjoying the pastime together with him. You can easily buy school uniforms by mail order. Some play involving cosplay and childish speech will surely excite him greatly.”
If your relationship has become stale, this is a sure-fire method of spicing it up. But many women will resist having anything to do this stuff. Isn’t there another way?
How to make him have eyes only for you!
“There is a way. That is to narrow your waist! Men are unconsciously looking at women’s bellies to determine if they can bear healthy offspring…
If your belly isn’t protruding, that is to say you are not pregnant, then he will unconsciously think you are ready to accept his seed. So if you have a pronounced figure, he’ll think of you as being fully fertile and stop thinking about young girls so much.”
You can kill two birds with one stone – cure your man of being a lolicon and develop a hot figure too!
So, try this and preparing a school uniform for cosplay purposes, and you’ll have nothing to worry about.
No discussion of lolicon could be complete without 2ch providing some first-hand perspective:
“Elementary schoolers are the best, aren’t they!”
“What’s wrong with being a lolicon!?”
“If your boyfriend is a lolicon it means you are a little girl.”
“This is a paradox.
If your boyfriend really was a lolicon, he wouldn’t be into you unless you were a little girl or else looked like one.
She just wants to attack anime and manga in the name of lolicon-bashing.”
“God, you don’t know what you’re talking about!”
“People who love lolicon should just pray they do not end up shotacon.”
“When hot guys like kids it’s because they have a healthy love of children, when creepy otaku do it’s because they are perverted lolicon.”
“Loli in 2D are great, but if some flat-chested loli-faced girl turned up as a delivery health girl I’d seriously droop.”
“3D loli are gross.”
“Women are at their most beautiful at 13.5!
So it shouldn’t come as any surprise at all that men are naturally attracted to girls of that age, but still they are called ‘lolicon.’
All that term means is that human culture has been twisted and warped. Mankind should again recognise that the acme of womanhood is at 13.5.”
“Even if they aren’t lolicon, it’s normal for a 50-year-old man to like women 30 years his junior. If they aren’t, there generally is a weird fetish involved.”
“My 20-year-old girlfriend looks like a middle schooler, and I have been asked if I’m a lolicon as a result. I just tell them I like cute girls.”
“Elementary schoolers aren’t there yet. They haven’t completely buried their childhood until middle school. They peak at high school age and it’s downhill from there. A woman who is still growing on the inside is great, but if they aren’t they are just going downhill.”
“The article reads like Agnes Chan. She doesn’t even approve of cosplay. The article itself seems to be aimed at women in their forties and fifties.”
“They can’t really be lolicon if they are in such a loving relationship. Except those lucky ones with loli-like girlfriends I suppose…”
“A lolicon would not have some old biddy as a girlfriend in any case.”
“We keep saying lolicon only applies to 2D. Having a sexual interest in real little girls is pretty dicey…”
“Lumping lolita complex together with pedophilia is itself strange. The author of this article needs to at least look in a dictionary.”
Anyone looking for a more sensible discussion of the definition of “lolicon” is directed to the very helpful mental health through manga special feature on the subject.
