UNICEF Demands Tighter Loli Ban for Japan

loli-ban-meishoujo

Unsatisfied with the recently strengthened laws against underage pornography, UNICEF “ambassador” to Japan Agnes Chan, a washed up Chinese entertainer, has presented the government with a petition comprised of 114,624 signatures, demanding the law be revised to UNICEF’s liking, which in this case involves increasing threefold the maximum sentence for certain offences.

According to UNICEF, one of the pressing threats to the health and well being of the world’s children is in fact the legal environment facing underage pornography in Japan, not, as some ignorant souls might think, the problems of disease and malnutrition.

Confident of this, Agnes Chan submitted the petition saying “The people are expressing a strong objection to this pornography. We want you to overcome faction and realise a revised law.” She went so far as to demand the cooperation of a variety of minor opposition parties.

The revision being sought would eliminate a lesser offence of “satisfying one’s own sexual curiosity”, carrying a maximum of one year’s imprisonment, making all such possession of pornography featuring underaged participants a more severe case of “simple possession”, carrying a maximum sentence of three years.

None of these revisions have any actual effect on those who might have sex with someone not of legal age, as such offences are already well covered by a wide variety of other laws.

UNICEF and Mrs Chan have on repeated occasions spoken out against the fact that equally severe punishments are not available for those view material featuring imaginary, entirely fictional children, so it is not hard to see where she will direct her attentions next, should she have her way; then it will be three years for possession of loli manga.

Via Jiji.

The non-existent children of the world can rest easy in their imaginary beds knowing they are defended by so staunch a crusader against freedom of expression…

    This argument seems a bit different than the one against pornography but pretty much the same. I don't feel like writing it out so,

    I like Lolicon but I have to say I admire what Unicef is doing . You can't have lolicon without a correct opposition to it . If Lolicon has any integrity and it does then it can coninue to be defined . The fact that Japan has Lolicon to begin with means they have a better grip on it than say Cananda or the U.S. Here in the U.S. I fear if someone sees my Comic LO collection they might freak out an think it's illegal .

    Japan is one of the country with the lowest crime rates on Earth, why the hell do they have to issue it to Japan is beyond me. With such low crime rates, don't they think that Japan do know what they are doing?

    So, with all of the negative news I've been hearing about this subject, why is it still on the boards?

    Oh, and not that I agree with UNICEF or anything, but you all know that the vast majority of non-anime fans would completely agree with UNICEF, right? I'm saying that if you posted this article on Digg (and it happened to make the front page) most people would defend UNICEF's actions, and call all of those who disagree with it, pedophiles. All in all what I'm saying, is that I don't see this stuff being legalized anytime soon.

    That is part of being an otaku. Most people don't get it. We are not the norm. To many this means we are wrong, but to be fair, I don't think the depiction of lolis ever hurt anyone (the lolis themselves are of course a different story)

    In my opinion, there's nothing wrong about this UNICEF demand because one of UNICEF objectives is to eradicate child rape. UNICEF's big enough and has enough people and money to work on its objectives at the same time, so it isn't wise to write UNICEF shouldn't waste resources on a crusade against child pornography, people and money needed to work on really important objectives like feeding and giving health care to children on Africa to eradicate death by hunger or disease.
    I believe a woman is ready to have sex when her reproductive system is mature enough to make her pregnant. It happens when she starts menstruating. Animal females follow the same rule. I never saw an animal male having sex with a immature female. An animal male knows when a female is mature following the rule above by instinct. Why men want to act different? When consensual, there's no rape when men and women follows the Nature rules.

    Actualy it's true,morals are morals nature is nature.
    When they reach puberty and get menstruation they start growing are kinda ready for sex.
    Just give them 2 or 3 more years after puberty,menstruation and they are perfectly ready for sex then.
    The normal age would come out to 14,15 y olds that are ready to get pregnant,shouldn't matter if they had puberty sooner,the age should still come to 14,15 years old.

    Women used to marry at an early age in the past. My grandmother married when she was 15. Her mother and grandmother married as young as or younger than her. Did my grandfather or my grandmother's father or grandfather rape their brides? It's not ignorance, because all of them were and are awesome people. My grandfather built a city. My still alive grandmother is an Engineer. Different times, for sure. Right or not, it was natural to marry a younger but physically mature woman.
    Artefact, I believe in love, marriage and family like my ancestors. If it happens with me, she would be my wife and mother of my children. It's different than only having sex to pleasure yourself and your partner...
    The answer remains a solid yes.

    Any sick fuck who supports real loli is messed up. Just because someone can make the decision to have sex doesn't mean they should. It's like if someone had never been exposed to violence, and then you give them a gun and say, "Well, your motor skills should be developed well enough to pull that trigger. If you'd like, you could shoot and kill someone. You have the freedom to do so."

    They probably would shoot someone/something because they don't understand what it means to kill someone. Then a couple years later when the implications of what they did set in they'd be really psychologically messed up, possibly for the rest of their lives.

    I see my fellow Japanese acting in the same way over this as they do when the rest of the world tells them that hunting whales is bad, that they must stop. They still persist in hunting whales because they refuse to be told what to do and if asked, a whaler will say "We hunt whales because we can. Nobody will tell us what to do."
    With the "demand" made by Chan, they will see this as an insult, and UNICEF's demands will fall on deaf ears!!!

    One Anonymous here mentioned something about children not having the proper sexual equipment before they hit puberty and can start producing sperm and what not. You also mentioned that children aren't mature enough to make their own decisions and that they see all grownups as authoritative figures.

    Your argument are as weak as they are uniformed.

    1. There have been cases where boys as young as 4 year olds produce sperm and girls as young as 10 years old could actually get pregnant. If you define a persons legality to participate in sexual acts by their hormones, then by that definition it wouldn't be wrong for these children to have sex no?

    2. Ah but what about children being small? Well not all children are THAT small... and what about Dwarfs? should having sex with a dwarf be illegal because they are tiny?

    3. It's all about the maturity and mind you respond with. But if that is true, what about retards? or just stupid bimbos/idiots? Some people never grow up, should we govern people and tell them what they can and can't do just because we don't trust them?

    I am not saying that Pedophilia is right, but your argument against it is easily picked apart. Because in the end your only real argument against pedophilia is: "IT IS WRONG BECAUSE I THINK IT IS WRONG!!"

    There is absolutely no argument you can present that can make pedophilia look like a sick or twisted thing if you look at it from a strictly logical point of view. All your reasons are based on "moral" "ethics" and "laws". And "MAL" is a social construct and has no real place in a thinking evolving society.

    Forcing ANYONE to do anything against their will however is wrong, and todays children can forced to do things against their own will. But then we aren't talking about Pedophilia anymore but rather robbing somebody of their freedom. What we need is not laws to stop all the pedophiles from abusing children, we need people to start raising their children better. Laws against abducting people and raping them are sufficient against people that abduct and rape children. We don't need special laws to deal with people tat have that taste. It would be like having special rape laws for black people or for men that are raped or blind people and so on.

    So if an uncle molests your daughter/son, then if you had educated you kid it could have screamed and said no. And if it had been to afraid to do it, it could have told you afterwards because it knew what it's uncle had done to it, and the uncle could have his ass sent to jail for rape. It's that simple.

    Now as for you lazy Internet fucks that sit here going gaga over this petition or whatever. If yo don't like it, then go ahead and try getting a petition. But think about it for a second, you really think you would be successful? With Pedophilia being frowned upon by the public eye, you really think all that many people would even dare to put their real names on something that could very likely end them all in jail? And if you did get people to sign this petition and you sent it to the authorities... wouldn't that be the most lulzy joke of them all? In this climate instead of getting a debate, all those people would be branded criminals. Some would go to jail and the other people would be constantly put on surveillance, maybe lose their jobs and all their friends and family would be shamed if their names got out.

    If you really want to fight, start taking this shit to court. You will probably lose your jobs and most o you go to jail, but unless you fight publicly and prove that you are all willing to go to jail for your beliefs, then nobody will ever listen to you. O course I'd wager that even if you did go to court and you somehow managed to be successful, it would take at least 80+ years for you to change any part of the public opinion.

    Ironically much of the blame for this can be found in the Asian countries where the laws are now trying to force itself onto. Look at Taiwan and fucking Bangkok. All the children being raped and forced into child prostitution. So many pedophiles go to these countries to live out their fantasies... and in doing so they are contributing to the public opinion. Nobody wants what is happening in fucking Thailand or Taiwan!

    So there you have it. There's my advice for both sides.

    My advice for those against Pedophilia: Start thinking for yourself you stupid fucks

    My advice for those that like Pedophilia: Stop being such fuckups you stupid fucks!

    You should try to be more consistent when you are trolling.

    First you are telling people that they need to think for themselves rather than following the general opinion, and then you generalize everyone as pedophile hater and discredit their opinions with a bunch of loosely linked facts.

    Society is not always right, and yes, people often do not think before accepting the "common truth". But even then, denying someone's opinion because you view it a biased by society is dumb an unethical. Not even Heidegger would go that far, even through a good deal of his work is related this relationship between individual and society.

    ITT: lots of Americans who know nothing about the rest of the world. Hell, probably nothing outside their own town. You know, there is a whole world outside of America. A world where the AOC isn't 18 (actually, it's lower than 18 in a lot of US states, but you wouldn't know that, of course). It's 13 in Spain, so does that make the Spanish a bunch of sick fucks? How about Italy and lots of other countries where it's 14? Are they all sick fucks too? Oh, and don't forget Mexico. Did you know a 16yo US citizen can cross the border into Mexico and legally have sex with a 12yo (under both US and Mexican law)? No, of course you didn't.

    You probably didn't know too that "childhood" as we now know it was invented by the Victorians, and was a byproduct of the Industrial Revolution. It's only because of the wealth that industrialisation brought to the middle classes that their kids could actually sit around all day and learn or play instead of going out and earning a living. Before then, there was really no such thing as "childhood". But now we've turned our children into gods, and nothing is safe - no liberty, no thought, no action - that might in any way harm even one hair of their precious little heads. And of course, governments the world over know this. So, they now have two big sticks to beat our freedoms over the head with, the fear of terrorism, which is already leading to some frightening curbs on basic liberties, and the fear that someone might hurt our children. You know what? Children will never be "safe". I have two kids myself, and I know what it's like to see them go out the door and wonder if they'll come back. But that's the price you pay for having them. You can't bundle them up in a big blanket and protect them from the world, and you do them a big disservice by trying to do it. Otherwise, they'll definitely never grow up.

    Hell kids are anyone under 25 for Christ sake as new adults are still immature.

    Like major populations in or around modern human society are really that mature by general population volume...

    Reading half of the comments made me think "Wow the human race is dysfunctional as a whole"

    Maybe in a few centuries, when there is but one race, THE HUMAN RACE (results of interracial relationships, you decide?) and impending doom has forced goverment and religion to be of one [opinion] solely for the greater good of the masses, and the general public is fed possibility ALONG with fact (instead of calling their possibilities fact) from such parties (if there is even media by then).....Then maybe, just maybe simple issues like this won't hinder society as a whole, and people won't lose a life over trivial nonsense.

    o-ho-ho Now if you will excuse me, I will look at a solid white wall and jerk off as if was dying right afterwards....surely no one will object to that.

    The only thing I care now is about the coments here, that say that a minor having sex is something not bad. Because you compare this fact with a 80 years ago time, or even the victorian time, when children used to have sex.

    I really don't understand lolicons, are they against pedophilia or are you defending it?

    Censorship laws are terrible. But if you are going to defend freedom, don't make a decoy of something else. There surely are people out there who find the idea of children engaging in sexual activity more repulsive than the misogynistic violence of guro, but that's beside the point. It's hypocritical.

    Censors won't be distracted by a different target, anyway -- they'll just broaden their definitions of obscenity. The cliche "give them an inch and they'll take a mile" applies very accurately to the kind of people who want to take away your freedom.

    ...then encourage China to produce more dairy products with added Melamine, leave those African children die due to starvation, sticked more posters on walls in Palestine (only to get bombarded by the Zionist), and use those donations cash left to go to Japan to do some "justice", spend them for happy hours and pay the plastic surgery bills for Agnes Cunt..

    first of all you are all pedophiles. you may say you arent and you state you never touch kids well what do you think lolicon is. its created after child porn was banned in japan. its a way of giving pedophiles what they want. get it? they look like kids and are small compared to the men that rape them. its sick,. its legal way of getting your child porn with out going to jail. and its a cowardly thing to do. you pedophiles are sick and twisted. hiding behind art please you dont know anything about art(art major here). you get off by looking at a toon that looks physically like a child and that makes you a pedophile. get it. admit it already. lolicon equals child porn. and what about toddlercon is that acceptable too are you not sick fucks because they are toons. you are sick and no child porn is okay. junior idols are also not okay. you fucking bastards. pedophilia is nasty and you are all pedophiles. also the people that view this will be desensitized to the sexulization of children and offend later on. this is just giving the pedophiles what they want and they deserve nothing. if they wanna think fine but viewing obscene images like this is grotesque. im making it my duty as a good moral person to rid the world of lolicon and people like you all. i hope that my cause will make a huge difference. one day the laws will be better and youll only have your filthy thoughts to jerk off to. and when that day comes ill be the one sleeping snuggly in my bed knowing ive protected the interests of children by going against all you pedophiles and lolicons(another name for pedophile).
