Sankaku Complex Banned by Russia


The Russian federal government has announced it is banning Sankaku Complex over some raunchy Touhou pictures, with the snappily named ROSKOMNADZOR awarding the site the same official honour it bestowed on the likes of Wikipedia and Facebook.

The demand of course concerns third party 2D material, although as usual there is a fair amount of ambiguity over the ages of the fictional characters involved – and no indication as to why these particular 3 images were singled out from the millions present:

Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (ROSKOMNADZOR)

Russia has apparently been busily banning such nests of subversion as Facebook and Wikiedia (along with the expected slew of sites dealing with piracy and politics) in recent months, although it is not clear how rigourously enforced or serious these bans are, this being Russia.

As Sankaku Complex does not fall under Russian jurisdiction and with one exception is not expected to comply with the laws of despotic regimes, there are no particular repercussions on the site or its hosting.

Any users affected by the ban might be best advised to topple the Russian government or invest in a good VPN.

    This one indeed looks like troll ( isn't aware of sankaku).

    BUT the dickbags have already blocked Gelbooru, so I guess sooner or later it will happen to others as well.

    Yeah, for now we can still use proxies and anonymizers, but they are going do ban them too, and then it will become like in China. The anti-anonymizer law is already in the works:

    I'm also from Russia, and also hate those "highly moral" freaks, morons and degenerates. And your site from November 11 has indeed become available from Russia, but there is always a "TOR".

    Я тоже из России и тоже ненавижу этих "высокоморальных" уродов , дебилов и дегенератов. А ваш сайт с 11 ноября действительно стал недоступен из России , НО всегда есть "ТОР" .

    Actually, it depends on the Internet service provider. Roskomnadzor sends all of them the webpages that they've found illegal, and most of the ISP's ban only these pages. However, some of them don't bother and ban the whole site, but it's not very common.

    The changes to blocklist are not immediate. Your ISP will download updated list (usually they do it once per day) and then either those 3 URLs or entire site will be blocked by IP (which is retarded). Also discussion about real or drawn CP is irrelevant because this shitty law was made to protect children from harmful information on the net. Our mental lawmakers think everyone here is a child or worse.

    wtf do they mean child porn? Unless they mean loli, which isn't. I mean, if they can't tell the difference between little girls and loli, then I question their ability to run a country. I guess their anti-gay laws are already proof enough they are stupid.

    Anyway, congrats on being banned by a government full of dickbags.

    The irony is that whether you live in a democratic country or not, governments seem to be the same. The only difference is how well one can hide being assholes than another....or whether they care people know or not.

    Technically the only difference between a "loli" and a "little girl" is the mindset of the individual viewing it.

    But even if the characters were indeed "little girls", it's a drawing FFS. I'd rather a pedophile get his jollies off on drawn pictures than actually go out looking for real little girls because viewing drawings of them is banned.

    Not to disagree, but you have to admit; loli porn is basically pseudo paedo. Just because it's not real, doesn't neccessarily mean it does not hold similar or the same connotations. The Japanese iterally use the term lolicon and shotacon for paedophiles.

    A violent media medium is made to target violent loving people (pretty much every human). Loli is basically the same. Both of which aren't real in any way so whatevers. Only those who can't distinguish reality and fiction and also blur the 2 have cognitive problems.

    How are they supposed to know the difference between loli and little girls? Even lots of otaku don't really know the difference -_-
    Also, no normal person would know about this, only us folks who either love or hate loli...

    And about difference between lolikon & pure hentai: In our Russia very wide discussed much people about blocking all hentai with subgenres. I guess what our government didn't see this difference, i think what block all hentai not correct, they must block only lolikon, no more.

    Even in Japan loli can technically be categorized as child porn, the law is simply not being enforced. Every major country in the world except one sees loli as either illegal, or gray area that can be cracked down on at any time.

    Laws of most countries are basically based on "common sense" of the masses, in other words, religion, bigotry and irrationality.

    The exception is China, where all live porn or those using live models are illegal, based on the idea that actors/actresses are necessarily victimized by the porn industry regardless of age. But any material not made using live model, ranging from 2D to realistic 3D, is explicitly worded by the law to be legal. No victim, no crime.

    I think if the world has a problem with pedophiles it should make MORE loli art to displace the real-life loli content and keep the would-be lolicons satisfied with 2D. With any luck they'll even prefer it to 3D, and the problem will have been solved par excellence.

    A child cannot give permission for sexual activity with an adult because they are a CHILD. The brain and body is still developing.

    Hence, pedophiles are able to rape children because the victims don't have the capacity to stop it. Don't have the strength. They are scared and/or easily tricked into things or follow authoritative figures (adult)

    Any parent knows this. Look at the situation in which a guy got a fast food manager to strip her 17yr old cashier over a prank phone. He then got her boyfriend to "watch" then have sex with this girl (oral sex / anal play in his ass)... and the prankster was pretending to be a COP! At a Sonic, he got a 16yr old Female manager to give oral to her 20yr old cook. Yeah, these people are generally stupid... but more so, easier to manipulate a child. (gifts, clowns, favors)

    And when adding drugs or booze on top, even easier. But the minor is NOT able to consent. Its still rape.

    Face it, almost all 11yr olds are not thinking about sex with adults. Not the same as "when I grow up, I'll be married, etc"

    Legalized child sex should NEVER EVER HAPPEN and won't happen. Keep your fantasies as fantasy. fine.

    But NO child wants to be your lover. Look at Sandusky of Penn State. He saw nothing wrong with having sex with little boys, he LOVED THEM.

    No, they were scared children that he RAPED, over and over again. They were traumatized.

    If you have sex with minors, you are a rapist - nothing more and eventually you will be caught.

    So, 18:57, you want to spout the same exact bullshit that was said about homosexuals, interracials and heterosexuals outside of marriage at one time about pedosexuals?

    Listen, you ignominous asshole... PEDOSEXUALITY IS A NORMAL FUCKING SEXUALITY. Always has been, always will be. If you TRULY want to protect children from FORCED sexual encounter, the only kind that your nosy ass should be trying to protect them from, the best way to do that is by bringing pedosexuality out into the open, legalizing it, and teaching children from VERY early (talking as soon as they can understand yes and no) that NO ONE has the right to touch them in a sexual manner without their permission.

    They probably use the (VERY WIDE) definition for the "child porn" described in the UN's "Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography" () as "any representation, by whatever means, of a child engaged in real or simulated explicit sexual activities or any representation of the sexual parts of a child for primarily sexual purposes."

    But they "forget" to notice, that this document demands that "acts and activities", related to the "child porn", must be "covered under its criminal or penal law" only in the case when they are used "for the above purposes (...) of: a. Sexual exploitation of the child; b. Transfer of organs of the child for profit;c. Engagement of the child in forced labour". When there's no children engaged, then there's no reason for punishment.

    Well, the fact is that this whole "SEX BETWEEN ADULTS AND CHILDREN IS EBIL!" shit didn't start until radical feminism came to the fore and the radical feminists realized "Oh crap.... girls and teenage girls having consensual sexual encounters that they enjoy is the best buster of our bullshit in history! We's gots to make it illegalz!"

    They really need to realize that pedosexuality is a normal and natural sexuality (proven by numerous animals having pedosexual relationships) and move on.

    For goodness sakes... born with fully functional genitalia outside of making sperm and dropping eggs = supposed to have sex from birth, though not necessarily penetrative sex.

    Sex with children has always been generally looked down upon... since, they are children. Because it happens, doesn't make it right.

    Weather loli manga is CP or not is just a big fat red herring. Anti-CP laws exist to protect children from being exploited in making it. Applying the same rules to both just because they both qualify as CP (regardless of weather that holds true) completely overlooks the fact that the main argument against CP does not fucking apply to drawings.
