UN Demands Hentai Ban

sakana-tentacle-raep

The UN has told Japan it must ban adult games and erotic manga featuring themes of rape, calling Japan’s protection of fictional women from fictional rape “inadequate.”

The demands come by way of the UN’s radical feminist arm, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, or CEDAW. Extreme feminist pressure group Equality Now previously vowed to make them seek such a ban, and it seems CEDAW happily complied.

Calling Japan’s treatment of women “inadequate” and “regrettable,” CEDAW formally demanded Japan end “human rights violations” against women by banning games and manga featuring themes of “rape and sexual violence.” It is not clear whether they extend their demands to anime, AV or literature, though this seems likely.

The suggestion that fictional works such as manga serve to promote sexual violence is entirely unproven; it is notable that Japan has some of the lowest rates of crime and sexual violence in the world, and yet some of the most abundant pornography, much of which deals with such themes.

This is of course undoubtedly tied to the intervention of busybody international feminist groups in Japanese politics after the Rapelay scandal…

  • Perhaps the hentai is what is keeping Japan from committing violent and sexual crimes, because they have an outlet? What if, by taking hentai away, Japan becomes like the rest of the world or worse?

  • I would like to make a point, if I may.

    When I was introduced to the idea of gender equality, it was through a network to stop man on man wartime rape in central Africa. A lot of women there were real feminists – they understood that we laugh and cry and hurt and masturbate like the horny monkeys we are together as equals.

    I met a girl some time later whose idea of feminism was locking up all men in cages and castrating them. She hated the idea of pornography, stripping, prostitution and everything else sexual that wasn’t a woman initiating sex with another woman, or if she’s still into that, a subservient man.

    There is a difference between feminism as gender equality, which is a wave that is yet to be born, and will only be born into the world from the sharpest pain, and feminism as female supremacy and censorship of anything that does not glorify and protect woman the superior from man the base animal, which is the third wave of feminism, and rode into offices of power on the political waves the second wave made

    Remember that these people are not gender egalitarians – they are the same scared autocrats we’ve been fighting for ten thousand years.

    surely if all the horrendous stuff like the rape hentai gets removed that could lead to increase of rape? I mean the rapists that do the horrible act will get caught but theres probably a load whom dont do it because they have the output with the hentai and if they dont get that they more likely to do it. Rather than less likely.

  • The article title trolled us into thinking the UN was banning hentai in general.

    In the end I don’t mind removing rape content. I prefer

    You have my vote those retards cant be allowed to mess with our anime and manga if we allow this everything is going to look like mickey mouse save the hentai.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I’m certainly not in favor of this ridiculous ban. I for one am a female who enjoys much more hardcore hentai than your average vanilla porn watcher/reader. I actually find real people porn to be quite dull. Eroge and doujinshi, the whole anime/drawn theme is much more creative and fantastical. I’ve rarely read anything that was even remotely like real life, everything is so staged still, it follows a genre. You don’t sit there reading or watching it going *gasp* “oh my god that could be me or someone I know!” you read it or watch it going “thank god this stuff exists” because you KNOW that there’s some pervert out there wishing he could fill some chick up with water till she explodes, or see how many bats he can stick up someone’s ass. He can read this stuff instead and fap to it and get it out of his system hopefully. It’s the same argument radicals make about video game violence. I don’t feel like shooting anyone any more or less today than I did yesterday just coz I played GTA all day.

    We have to protect people’s right to create and enjoy this art form, coz otherwise we’re just encouraging people to bottle it up and shut up, and that’s not right if it’s not hurting anyone. Which they can’t prove otherwise on a large enough scale to shut me up.

  • I cannot believe there is anyone who would defent rape hentai/eroge on its own merits. It’s disgusting and vile and the very concept of it repulses me.

    On the other hand, I have a difficult time believing there should be a ban on speech and other, similar forms of expression, even when that expression contains nothing of value. Rape doujins are the sort of thing that people should learn not to like, instead of being forced not to like.

  • Also, people, remember: feminism isn’t inherently evil; there are still things which show that feminism is necessary (such as *actual* rape, which is horrible — contrasted with *fictional* rape, which by definition never happened; and the fact that American women earn 70% what American men earn). However, with every movement, you have your responsible ASPCAs, and you have your dickish PETAs.

  • This is the Internet age. Whatever gets banned will be replaced with stuff much worse. Indeed, considering the personalities of quite a few members of the Internet community, people may well take a ban as a challenge to create worse. (Damn libertarians!) At any rate, this is doomed to do nothing beyond removing all restrictions economically imposed upon a company trying to sell a product. If you hated rape, wait until you see rape-then-guro!

  • Noooooooooooooooooo !
    Pls perverse Friends Come with me !!!
    I send this stupid people the big mystic 10 arms Ufo, and play ! 😀

    “Nothing their alley what the Japans do how to it. Let America get broken with his own troubles, let him hit his nose against his other thing.”

    GOOD LUCK ! AND DONT GIVE UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Can’t we just kill off the CEO or head of CEDW. I live right next one of the Equality Now buildings in the Eastern States and had a buddy place a pipe bomb in their building. I got away with it. Unfortunatly no one ended up dead.

    Just kill them seriously. Paid assassins, nukes anything. This brainless idiots need to be whiped of f the face of the earth.

  • Lately I’ve noticed since the Equality Now fiasco, quality of H-games have sucked. The latest releases don’t seem appealing as they were last year.

    Plus is the CEDAW even conscious right now? Apparently, isn’t Japan near the risk of some type of economical collapse? The workforce is being underpaid, taxes are increasing, the country is in a 3.5trillion dollar debt. By banning eromanga, and eroge, wouldn’t this hurt Japan’s economy?

    Way to go UN during this time of global economical recession. You’ve just succeeded in contributing to Japan’s economical collapse.

    I’m already sending the letter LunarSD posted.

  • This is such bullshit. Japan should tell the UN that they want to have 6 nation talks with 4 other nations that don’t give a shit and have veto power or something. Then Japan continues on doing what they’re doing while the majority of other countries look the other way and/or threaten to veto if any substantial change to how they do business is done. Hey, it worked for North Korea and Zimbabwe.

  • NatsuNekuSama says:

    *palmface* Is the UN scared there is going to be a lawsuit coming from the fictional women… or that the fictional women are going to have life long trama? The UN’s way of thinking is “inadequate”.

  • protection of fictional women

    uhuh. right.

    i needs money to feed my fictional wife, to school my fictional daughter and to buy my fictional mother’s meds. also we must help in their campaign to help fictional women everywhere who may or may not be being fictionally abused. we need to better protect out fictional women!

    i thought PETA was insane… well they still are, but these guys make em look better in comparison.

  • hikikomorihime says:

    IRL rape is about power. It’s not about, “Oh, she/he is hot!” It’s just an abuse of power over another. It turns sex into violence. That’s it.

    Fantasy is just fantasy, and when we start deciding what fantasies/thoughts should be banned/illegal, we start getting into really iffy territory. 🙁 I’m very uncomfortable with the idea of them wanting to ban that stuff… Just because I don’t personally like reading about women getting raped doesn’t mean I can go out and say it should be banned. It’s just not one of my things to fantasize about. However, I am into stories of forced femiminization. I’m glad that’s not on some jackholes “to censor” list as of YET.

    Also, I find I meet a lot of morons who think they are fine upstanding citizens, look down on rape games/comics/etc… but when it comes down to it, they seem nothing wrong with getting a woman drunk out of her mind while they pretend to drink so they can have their way with her. They justify it as being “drunken sex”, when actually they’re talking about damn date rape! In their minds, rape is always something that happens in a darkened alley, by a stranger, with a gun/knife/obvious physical violence/threats. They don’t get that it’s about them taking the right to consent away from the female, thereby making sex itself from something fun into something violent and terrible. (Feel free to switch gender pronouns when needed, as it can happen in any combination.)

    • 1) No, it isn’t. Rape is about sex, obtained through violent means. It’s just that with pussy involved, everyone’s minds get clouded due to instinct, indoctrination, and reflex. As has been mentioned by others, “to say that rape is about violence is like saying that bank robbery is about guns, not money.”

      The problem here is the attitude toward sex. Countries with a lenient (or even understanding) attitude toward sex tend to have fewer issues with rape than countries that have strict laws preventing it.

      Note that Japan is near the bottom of the list there, even with all of the pornography, eroge games, hentai, and what not that comes out of that country. The US is in the top 10. This is because while Japan may have a conflicted view of sex, they at least recognize that it is natural, and normal. The US has an ultra puritanical view of sex, the sexual revolution be damned. The only thing the sexual revolution really did was create a legitimate sexual underground that pornographers can make money off of. Sex is still considered bad, and any misstep in trying to have relations with someone can get you thrown in jail forever. Laws are so fucked up that you can go to jail for actually raping a child for less time than if you merely had pictures of a child being raped. In the US every man is a rapist until proven otherwise, and to top it off, the median attractiveness for women in the US is probably somewhere around 4, with the mean being somewhere around 3, as it is the norm to be fat beyond all reason here. Not “not supermodel sized,” or “athletic” or “reasonably healthy and proportional.” Fat like Santa Claus fat. Throw all of that together, and you have a perfect recipe for a rape disaster.

      It’s not the games, it’s the people involved.

  • this will be the trigger of WWIII. the ban of hentai will cause billion of otaku to launch their home made nukes and gundams at the UN. and the UN will respond with force. Foolish human.

    those feminist just want a excuse start a campaign to secure their own position and promotion. if they won this war i can in next ten year or so, all women will to wear bullet proof and amour mounted with a sentry gun set on auto mode which kill any man on sight. all books and magazines baned. brainwash once per week.

  • Gee, I wonder what else are they gonna ban.

    Any books with rape in them? That takes out almost half of every crime/adult/mystery/romance novel ever written and there are some very well known authors out there that use rape as a central plot in the story.

    Anyway, CEDAW is definitely on a slippery slope on this one…

  • I manage to rally 200 people from various ethnic, religious and gender background to literally signs and send the letter today. I do hope…

    each of you at least would be able to rally 200 people minimum and spam CEDAW with this letter. I plan to continue on doing this, whilst it is fun to see how it going to be later on…

    I do agree, this is Decade’s fault

  • Don’t get me wrong, hate rape, hate the ero scenes in games which depict rape, but I would never go this far and ask Japan to quit it altogether. Ain’t hurting me, and I don’t have to watch/read/play it, I just ignore it and let it be. Not my problem, not my issue. Ofc as a woman, I should care more, but somehow I just don’t. And I wish the others in my gender would quit the bitching!!

  • Oh Noes! The UN is on the case! It’s only a matter of time until they’ll stop fictional violence against fictional women just as effectively as they have been stopping real violence against real women in Middle East, India and Africa. Oh wait…

  • Yes! Finally the UN starts doing something for the greater good of mankind! Who gives a fuck if Africa is dying of hunger and full of HIV, that N. Korea is testing nuclear warfare and that the USA is making war in every little country they can! FUCK ALL THAT, HENTAI RAPE GAMES IS WHAT’S IMPORTANT FOR THE SAFETY OF HUMANKIND!!!

    — sarcasm ends —

    Fucking assholes, UN please re-read your purpose and mission objectives and focus in what’s really important, as example the three little examples I just wrote. Thanks.

    Hello friends,

    I have written before on the violations by Equality Now and now the United Nations on our rights as adults to choose for ourselves what we deem good for us. These individuals are telling us, free people, what we can and cannot watch, play, etc. You who say that they will regulate other things are right. Soon they will regulate what we can say, what we can listen to, what we can eat, what we can think. They are already trying to execute the last one by trying to limit our games and our hentai.

    This started with the game Rapelay. The game was meant to be distributed to the Japanese public only but it got poorly translated and got out to the rest of the world. I have read the biased reviews given by some people. I have also read the unbiased reviews some people gave. Here are a couple of the unbiased reviews.

    http://www.honestgamers.com/systems/content.php?review_id=7802&platform=PC&abr=PC&gametitle=RapeLay

    Now their attention has turned toward Hentai since their attack on one eroge game was successful. I have been a hentai fan for years and I, like all of you, am not going to stand by as they destroy my right to choose. There are some hentai movies I CHOOSE not to watch because they are too much for me. You and I choose what we will and won’t watch.

    Their argument is that people, especially men, will do what they see shown on hentai. Not only have they call us uncontrollable rapists, they have also demeaned us by calling us trained monkeys. But their argument isn’t only against men. They believe that the women who enjoy hentai are as perverted as the men who watch hentai. They are complaining because an animation is being abused by another animation. What they fail to realize is that these animations are fantasy; drawings put on paper and made to move. They are not real people. I enjoy hentai, that doesn’t mean I’m going to take a woman against her wishes just because I watch hentai. If their logic were true, that means that everyone who’s played GTA is going to go beat prostitutes with 2x4s, everyone that has played GoW is going to decapitate someone, and the list CAN go on.

    I am ready to fight back. It is time that we let the United Nations know what our view on our freedom to choose. Don’t bother writing to Equality Now. They have already talked about the “unprovoked” and the “unprecedented” amount of so-called “hate mail” they have received. Write to CEDAW like LunarSD stated earlier. They’re not our only target though. Also write to Japan’s Prime Minister Taro Aso’s office and any Japanese Parliament member you can think of. Please be respectful. No profanity. We want these people to be our friends and allies in our cause. If you don’t think you can write well, just write something or get someone to help you write your thoughts down. Don’t worry if you write in a different language, they have translators.

    United we will show these Government officials that these so-called feminists should have their attention directed to the plight of real flesh and blood women who are suffering in reality than trying to help fictitious drawings out of someone’s imagination. United we will stand in defiance of these busy-bodies who wish to take our right to choose from us.

    Sincerely you friend,
    I Stand in Defiance

  • This is the same UN whose peace-keeping forces rape women and children? Yeah right, they have a firm moral ground to stand on.

    I’m a woman, and a real feminist. That is to say, I believe women should have the same rights and opportunities to make something of themselves that men do. I also think that one of those rights is a free and clear access to porn of her choice without other women and men attaching a stigma to it, like she’s a leper for enjoying it. Especially drawn porn, which allows all of us to mentally enjoy desires and fantasies we’d never express in real life.

    Calling for this ban is against all the freedoms that I as a feminist fight for. We don’t need sheltering protection. We need people to respect our rights to think, and to realize that we’re adults capable of making our own moral choices. Equality Now, stay out of my head.

  • It’s time to dissolve the UN. Not just over hentai, but the ongoing waste of resources on pointless shit like this, and continuing to support what could be the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis, their own project, the Israel-Palestine conflict. Far too many lives have been lost on both sides of that because the UN doesn’t want to admit they’re wrong and try to settle the Israelis on unoccupied territory – because they’ve shown that if they land anywhere occupied, they will kill the very last native occupant until it is all theirs.

  • “First they came for the Jews
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left
    to speak out for me.”
    –Martin Niemöller

    Seriously folks, we need to speak out loud against any and all forms of censorship of free speech. Such a ban would further the cause of the anti-free speech crowd around the world. If enacted, this could very easily spiral out of control to include political satire, or whatever those in power (be it government or corporation) deem against their own interest.

  • UN and CEDAW are insulting not only japan but their culture too this two should get sue for a great amount for discriminating other countries and their culture.

    I dont know why they the UN and CEDAW is trying to ban fantasy entertainment if this this category “rape hentai” is really hurting people then they sould of ban it 49 years ago.

    What they need is to stop waisting money on stupid and idiotic campains and start doing something about real reapist not fantasy rapist.

    PS:All hail hentai.

  • Barbarian of Gor says:

    See what I mean!? This is why I’ve said what I’ve said here and elsewhere.

    This is where I draw the line: “ThoughtCRIME”

    The forces of control, of the slavery of man can not allow us any escape, any outlet for any behavior they do not like. They are ending “Sex tours”, no matter the starvation and desperation that doing this causes. They are steadily closing the “Drug Meccas” and they are starting “Pogroms” against the countries and cultures in opposition to the domination of the bankers and their enforced fascist “PC” lifestyle. This, not any ‘women’s rights’ issues, are why they are having AmeriKKKa attack Islam and Muslims.

    They can’t even allow us the “Fantasy” the “Thought” of any “Illegal” or “Immoral” behavior. We will not even have the freedom of our minds, they want that much control.

    That is why I propose “SeaSteading” and using that as a platform to build a confederation of “MicroNations”. We make our own mini-islands, such as floating concrete platforms, decommissioned oil tankers, etc. We get in truck with shrinking “Island Nations” and build them some of these in exchange for legal recognition so the UN and AmeriKKKa can’t immediately get us. On these rafts (you’ll go nutty completely alone) we will live in social tribes, but we will have NO rules except for the ones we choose for ourselves and the bare framework rules like the law of Hospitality. We work on making our technology, the “Other” good thing to do when sitting on a garden raft all day, we’ll quickly surpass the rest of the world. We grow and spread and keep to ourselves and then as the world states weaken briefly as they assert control we assert ourselves as a large confederated superstate.

    And I do plan to go back to the tribal way, including removing the problem of the “Modern woman who seeks to destroy all men.” The cute, demure ones get treated like mini-queens, the uppity B*tches get electricity in the an-s and out the breasts till they behave. It wouldn’t be “Pervert’s Paradise” you’d have to commit to what you stick yours into and own it legitimately within the tribe’s rules, but a man shall have what he wants if he can get and keep it…

    —“A man shall have what he wants…if-” isn’t that a universal truth?

    As inspiration, you might look up the classic Psykosonik song “TeknoJihad”

    In the short term, I wonder about a backlash against these women who seek to destroy all men? From how they reacted to the first backlash, they are cowards. More pressure, such as (financial and social engineering) on their other projects, like charities, and they’ll shut up. These women are messes. They want to be ‘dominated’ but only by mister wrong because they love the fantasy romance of wanting to ‘change’ him and crying as he does his ‘bad to the bone’ act and moves on to the next willing set of legs. They don’t want to be dominated by “Mr Right”, the producing male, for they would truly be owned by him and dependent on his love, not that they won’t use him for money and support between “Mr. Wrongs”. A cool Japanese “HowTo” guide for a “Cheat Sheet” for women’s romance storylines just said it’s “like a neverending game of Tetris”, always searching for the right fit, but when the fit is met the thing disappears and more pieces need to be put in place.

  • I keep saying, morons. What THE FUCK do you think feminism is about. What THE FUCK do you think the do behind the scenes like Christians, Islamists, and the RIAA MPAA.

    They do this. All because people want to deny how invidious and oppressive modern feminism is.

    Let’s hope the Japanese tell them to fuck off.

  • Took the UN long enough, lol! Man I love pr0nz as much as the next guy, but even I have to admit Japan got away with way too much for such a long period of time that its almost laughable the rest of the world is taking action now.

    Anyways this shit is crazy, I’m gonna keep loading up on fappable material just in case this turns uglier than it already is.

    • Men and women are not equal, that’s a fact. It’s quite more difficult for a woman to rape a man than the opposite.

      I’m for eroge and against rape eroge. Rape eroge are not necessary, eroge are just enough.

      • Although I do agree with you that rape eroge are kind of meant for a niche audience, I still believe that rape eroge are still part of freedom of speech and expression and therefore shouldn’t be banned.

    • That’s because women actually care about this stuff. After all, they feel they’ve like they’ve been discriminated against all over the world for far too long. Not to mention they feel it’s their right to be able to protest in the ‘modern’ world. While I agree that they should be able to protest against things that actually DO discriminate against women, I think the holy war they’re trying to rage to protect fictional women is silly. They should really focus on countries where violence against women is actually high (of course I’m not going to name any countries in particular but I think we all have a country in mind). Seen in another way, these partciular feminists may see this as a chance to get some much needed attention from world governments, since, after all, ‘morality’ is on their side. They may also see this as a battle that they can actually win, unlike trying to change policies in western contries. This confidence is further boosted by the success brought on by the Rapelay removal. The point is, they’re not going to stop lobbying them, much like how a child will not stop throwing a tantrum against a parent until the child gets what they want. So until either something else bigger comes up, or Japan gives in like they did with the eariler bans, CEDAW will hound them like hungry dogs.

      • “They should really focus on countries where violence against women is actually high ”

        have you ever even thought of where you got this concept? have you fucking ever even thought about it?

        Men are subjected to violence at much higher levels than women, because they are expected to war and protect other women. And many men still won’t attack a woman, but would have no compuction murdering a man.

  • anonymousss says:

    (from the article)”The suggestion that fictional works such as manga serve to promote sexual violence is entirely unproven.”

    This is completely untrue. There is plenty of data suggesting that exposure to pornography leads to an increase in sexual crimes.

    Dr.Victor Cline
    Catherine MacKinnon
    Dolf Zillmann
    Berl Kutchinsky
    Annika Snare

    All of those doctors/professors/criminologists/etc have done research on it. Sure there is opposing research as well. But it’s not like there’s NO evidence.

      • anonymousss says:

        Well his article is completely biased against the UN people, with phrases in it like “radical feminist”, “extreme feminist pressure group”, “busybody international feminist groups”, (and in the other article about them receiving unprecedented criticism, “Pro-censorship feminist group”, “meddling”, “desperately attempted”, “specious propaganda “, “scant validity of their specious claims “, etc). These are all pointed and negative references, and they help guide the reader towards his point of view. also,

        Also, I took notice of him saying it was “entirely” unproven, because it is NOT “entirely” unproven. There’s evidence suggesting it, its just not “completely” proven.

        Anyway this is a sad display of “news” when the whole article is riddled with his personal commentary and opinions. Let people make up their own minds.

        • You didn’t just mention works of Catherine MacKinnon, did you? Well, in this case you’re in no position to accuse this article of being biased.

          And regarding Berl Kutchinsky and Annika Snare: Oops, looks like you cited the wrong study… You do realize that their research actually indicated the complete opposite of the point you’re trying to make? They studied (for two decades) the effects of the legalization of hardcore porn in Denmark back in the 60s, and their findings were that no such increase was evident. Their work has been confirmed by numerous criminologists of other European countries that made that move at the time…

    AMERIKKA
    FUCK YEAH

    Don't you just blame us for this. The Europeans are just as involved if not more so.
    And anyway, the UN can't do a thing about eroge or hentai. They don't have any kind of authority outside of finger-wagging when it comes to the domestic policies of its member states, and they do a whole fucking lot of that, believe me. And does anything ever come of it? No.
    All you should hope for is that the Japanese ignore all this and don't cave into outside pressure. But considering their track record, that's unlikely.

    • Agreed. Europe has much more involvement in this than US. Here is no freedom of expression or whatsoever.
      All the sick fuck politicians think (??can they even do that??) that they have to protect fictional woman’s rights. wtf. It’s not like they truely cared about the morals. They just want to give the impression of doing something while doing nothing but fapping to real child pornography.

      • Sadly though that is more then true. I also think it would be an adequate idea to introduce an instituiton that is there for making sure men are treated equally. Because feminists obviously love to kick anyones rights with their high-heels as long as said subject isn’t a woman…

  • You know I’m a girl and I think this is BS. This is taking things to far. If anything taking away the stimulation will only cause people to look for somewhere else. UN needs to keep their focus on more important things.

  • The UN has no buisness or balls to tell Japan or any country what they MUST do.They can’t stop Iran from trying to attain nuclear weapons…they can’t seem to get North Korea to stop trying to obtain them either, nor does it have the balls to stand up to China about its flagrant human rights violations or it’s treatment of Tibet, etc.,etc..

    Japan really ought to tell them to mind their own buisness and go do something meaningful for the world.Neither of which it can seem to do.

  • Its interesting to see how our donated tax dollars are being spent. Not on world peace or anything, just trivial pursuits.

    Luckily, the UN has no real power,so their efforts are nothing but a waste.

    That’s right, raep fans, your porn is safe.

  • For the first time in my life… I know what I must do. The road will be long, hard , and fraught with peril but I’ll do what I must because I can. Pray for me brothers and sister for I go now… to WAR!

  • Trust me. The ban will not stop just in the hentai category if ever these extremists win.

    Such success will lead to the ban of ecchi and fanservice since it also depicts fictional characters.

    Actually, it sounds more of conspiracy to drive these genres underground and degenerate the otaku community that supports Japan’s economic resilience.

    Whereareas, the extremists laugh how soft of a target Japan really is. Because these extremists don’t have the balls to do battle against hard target countries that have very high sex crimes because these countries have no-negotiations methods like nukes.

    Although Japan is not my country, from my viewpoint, that’s plain SABOTAGE to meddle in its policies. What’s wrong with otaku who prefers 2D? It might be a social disorder but it is not a crime.

  • Mail sended, now on topic…..is quite incredible that by manipulating info a group can achieve its goals and even more…..

    Save fictional characters and let real persons get screwed for real right?…….

  • I just sent off my own letter using the Yestofreedom template, with my own comments appended. While I honestly doubt anything would come of this, I’d rather not take any chances.

    I’m for safety and dignity but not for censorship or criminalization of thoughts.

  • Anyway I will pick up Action Game Maker and make a Rape game right now, they may ban it in Japan (’cause it government is coward and retarded ) but can they fucking ban it in the INTERNET ???

  • UN just look more and more pathetic. Mark my words those idiots will soon be disappeared into oblivion. Any governments that take their words seriously is fucking retarded and I fear Japan’s is none the wiser -_-“

  • By the very same logic? They should ban movies that depict sex, games that have violence and murder, history books that have illustrations of rape, paintings with rape as its content such as the “Rape of the Sabines”, books such as Marquis de Sade’s books, illustrations of murder, violence, and just about 90% of human history.

    Hell, why not ban the word “rape” or any depiction that implies rape? Also, let’s ban anything that’s anything that makes people think.

    Because, you see, it empowers these retarded women, the feeling of being able to tell other people what to do.

  • I’m an American and even I know UN is that weak. Weak enough to just say this nonsense not even knowing what hentai really is. And didn’t Japan just put a ban on some stuff on hentai already. Japan just wants to be left alone, but the some feminist groups are in their face. This is just pitiful!

  • i don’t think they can apply the ban. All the industry gives them a lot of money, and no human will stop doing what gives money. And if japan, for any case, stop the industry, some other country will take it, so japan isn’t going to let the ban so easily.

  • what gives the UN the right to tell other country what to do. Wait what am i saying of course they would tell another country what to do even though it robs the industry of interesting games out. did they ever read the recent articles out that 85% of women have weird kinky thoughts of being raped or having sex with multiple men, even 5% being a personal slave. i think it is a slap in the face to tell the company’s to take those games off the shelf when 90%dont have no problem. Come on people its just a game its not like a snuff film. Also they already tried to ban violent video games from the shelf how can people be so inconceivably shallow of how a company can run there business

  • MusicalNote says:

    I’m stunned.
    Screw freedom of speech!
    Screw freedom of expression!
    Let us all become the same being without individual thoughts.
    Let us all enjoy nothing but the missionary position and those in which the woman is on top!
    All hail the UN, those who ban the fictional to protect the imaginary!

    This is… just stupid! I can’t even fathom a better word for it.
    This is the start of a slippery slope. Soon, violence in general will be banned, then anything that isn’t a portrayal of goodwill towards all living beings.

  • Bullshit. I’m saying that what you’re doing right now is not enough. You’re the ones who believe that nothing else can be done.

    The odds are already against you, yet you’re not even showing the balls to do everything you can to maximize those odds? Look who’s the one who doesn’t care enough.

  • I can't believe Japan listened to what a bunch of white american racists have to say! however, I really doubt this "ban" will continue. I'm really surprised these bitches have gotten far with this nonsense. People have tried to ban smoking, beer, or violent video games (Jack Thompson). Nothing gets fixed. Banning hentai will not show any positive impacts, only negatives. Stupid moral shitheads, honestly, to ban something with no evidence and to arrest someone for harmless pornography is like arresting someone for a thought crime.

    • I had no idea the United States represented all of the UN…hrm. Well, whatever, blaming America for all the worlds ills is pretty much the feel-good method for everyone; can’t blame certain people for hopping on the bandwagon. From an American who thinks this new ban is stupid.

  • “35. While the Committee welcomes legislative measures taken against child prostitution, such as the revision of the Act Banning Child Prostitution and Child Pornography which increased the maximum term of imprisonment for offences committed under this legislation, the Committee is concerned at the normalization of sexual violence in the State party as reflected by the prevalence of pornographic video games and cartoons featuring rape, gang rape, stalking and the sexual molestation of women and girls. The Committee notes with concern that these video games and cartoons fall outside the legal definition of child pornography in the Act Banning Child Prostitution and Child Pornography.
    36. The Committee strongly urges the State party to ban the sale of video games or cartoons involving rape and sexual violence against women which normalize and promote sexual violence against women and girls. The Committee also recommends that, as indicated in the delegation’s oral assurance during the constructive dialogue, the State party include this issue in its revision of the Act Banning Child Prostitution and Child Pornography.”

    • Thats not constructive dialogue thats dictation of their new policy. So I guess if you buy/make/view manga, anime or a game in the future that has someone resembling a person under the age of 18 or a woman being mistreated, abused and objectified then youll be tried under laws that are for pedophiles and rapists.

      Hooray for thought crime!!! I’ll be a rapist pedophile that has never raped nor abused a child. A criminal without a victim.

  • Cant they just leave the rape fanboys alone they not doiung anyone any harm in fact i think these Rape and Violent Themed hentai’s can rather satisfy the needs of some of the people that would otherwise act out… Its not real so why get upset about it realy people are so thick..

  • Fortunately, the UN doesn’t have the authority to enforce such a demand–their purpose being moderation, not governance–so Japan can respond with a heartfelt FUCK YOU ASSHOLES!

    Seriously though, did no-one on the UN council cry thought police? I’d have hoped we’d have at least one person there who could see it for what it is.

    • Wrong, so very wrong. It is the fact that you place rights on things that do not have rights to begin with. This is a move based on Morals and not on facts and science. If you want that then go back to where the earth is flat and the moon is made up of cheese. Even better I claim your car because I found it and stick a flag on top of it.

      Once again if this goes through than say goodbye to your God of War, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat, Marlyn Manson and Death Metal and many more because morally it should not exist.

  • … Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world: 9 year olds who have never seen or heard of hentai are raping 6 year olds; Extremist Muslims are keeping women and girls as sex slaves and baby factories. Women are forced to have abortions and baby girls are thrown into the streets in the Chinese Democratic Republic…

    THANK GOD these crusaders for justice are trying to ban these naughty vile images. For the children.

      [00:55] I can’t go rip their heads off. We would be sinking to their extreme levels.

  • I am not into these types of games, art and the such. However to ask for a ban WITHOUT proof that it causes more cases of rape and such is unacceptable. More over saying fictional characters have rights is even more retarded. Allow this and Video Games will be next followed by music. Enough of how 2-d characters have rights. It’s the same thinking as dogs and cats are just like humans. Yet these same people go around killing insects without a second thought. They too have feelings and yet they get killed and tortured till no end.

    Don’t put this off, we need to show massive opposition. I honestly believe that there are members of the UN who would be sympathetic to our side, but they wont take that stance or be outspoken if they think theres no one to back them up. They need a population to speak for, because like a lot of you, they too are afraid of speaking up because of what others will undoubtedly think of them.

    Make no mistake: what’s going on is WRONG, and we–with no national association, but as a people who enjoy freedom–have an OBLIGATION to do something to stop it. This is not a Japanese, American, Canadian, Indonesian or Filipino battle.

    This is YOUR battle to fight as someone who loves freedom of expression through art.

    • I’m sure more than a few actually are.

      Must be nice being able to parasite off of the suffering of others. It is an inexhaustible resource thanks to the efforts of people such as yourself.

      —–

      Bigots are an ideally evolved form of parasite, as not only do they feed off of the troubles of those they attack, they themselves also cause those troubles.

      It would be a symbiosis if you actually had anything of value to share.

      But when you’re reduced to getting your kicks off of an actual person’s suffering, you are nothing more than an insectile bundle of self-serving impulses.

      Keep in your tiny, hopeless little head, please.

      Keep it fiction.

      • Every time I see someone who bullies others just because they are in a peaceful niche category, especially a creative artistic one, it bothers me.

        Whenever I’ve helped people being bullied, there are –always– people like you who get high off of selfishness and angry hormones, who inevitably group me in with the people I protect.

        It’s usually what they say as a parting retort before storming off in angst and lonely stupidity. That I’ve never once played a rape game and could care less about them beyond protecting those who need protecting wouldn’t even compute with you. Because, as a bigot, all you’re capable of doing is grouping people into categories and yelling incoherently like this about them not being in your particular category. You stroke the caveman inside of you, but you are its pet.

        It is no different than middle school before I learned karate. I got cornered by a bunch of bullies who were about to rough me up because, just like you, they have nothing but a piggish, viral appetite for suffering.

        An older kid who was at red belt in karate showed up and scared them off. I later joined, worked my way up the ranks, got older, encountered the very same situation but with me being the one to quell the socially violent and retarded.

        You really are nothing but unthinking bullying animals, and I pity you more than any other sort of creature I’ve met, or will ever meet.

        I’d link you to Neil Gaiman’s “Why defend freedom of icky speech” rant to help expose you to more people who unbiasedly defend fiction on principle, but why bother.

        Even if you somehow managed to break the cycle and become a better person, there’s an endless line of jerks behind you who’ll take your place.

        The best we can do is to defend those whom you attack in the name of democracy and universal human rights. What could make you stop these attacks in the first place, I do not know. Discrimination is a deep-seated psychological problem.

        But perhaps we can at least mitigate the damage you cause by rallying for clearer legislation representing free expression and work to construct more official non-profit organizations that can pool resources to fight you like the terrorists you are.

      • tl;dr. must be nice to complain about the UN so you can beat off to something you wish you could do, but in reality probably never will due to the cowardice you hold. besides, beating off to the idea of raping a fictional drown underage girl totally makes you cool bro.

    • I’m curious about this as well, Didn’t the UN tell north korea not to do multiple things like nuke testing and North Korea did it anyway? Seems like 2D porn would be the least of their problems.

        • Holly, the reason Shuu says this is because Japan folds to outside demands for the sake of political expediency, and in all irony, partly because of the shame culture.

          I have no qualm with the latter; it’s done them waaaaaaaay more good than harm. They’re the friendliest, kindest, most polite people group the majority of the world knows in general, with crime rates that should make every other country fold over in shame.

          However, when openly attacked in the public arena by the West, regardless of how radical and extremist and ridiculous the accusation is, Japan complies for the sake of political expediency hoping that the problem swiftly goes away thereafter. Except that in some cases, like this one, it only leads to progressively worse things.

        • I see, but japan loves it’s own culture and doesn’t want foriengers to mess around with it, which is understandable, so why would japan want to get rid of hentai? Or is it some sort of minority group within japan that wants it gone? I’m still a little confused about all of this. ^.^’

  • @ dood:

    Being a member along side of LunarSD I would say that ~

    ~ and in the same token ~ “being afraid” ~ not to make changes will not solve anything either.

    An individual needs to make the/an effort to make those changes and not just sit on their laurels and expect (others) to do it for them.

    ~ and if it requires sending a (simple) standard form letter in order to have a voice heard, wanting to cease all this Banning, Censoring, protecting/preserving – “OUR FREEDOM” – to enjoy what we wish, and protecting that freedom from being taken from us.

    Then – this simple action – is not much to give up, now is it?

    • Let’s ban the Bible too. It’s got rape, underage sex, incest, voyeurism, godly rape, beastiality, and an entire fucking (pun intended) book dedicated to making hot, wet, passionate luv.

  • The male population is extremely dissatisfied with the looks of some woman wandering in the streets. They are ugly, fat and old. Surprisingly, no woman ever complained about this. EQUALITY NOW! Ban these sick old fags from the streets!

  • This is what happens when you make nothing to something huge XD

    Well done japanese otakus…great way to take it out on us instead of going “We shouldn’t punish others cuz of our own goverment” Agnes is at fault..she probably sent a letter to UN….Agnes from Japan not Denmark….lol XD

    Rape is no good….BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, FUCKING UN…IT STIL HAPPENS IN THE WORLD AND YOU ARE DOING NOTHING TO STOP IT. Best place to pick: Middle Africa…they keep doing it 24 hours and what is UN doing? NOTHING!

    Btw does that mean that they will do that in the rest of the world too? Censor everything where #rape# may appear? Lulz, ignorant adults…jews are still killing the stonethrowers, ppl are still dying by hunger, over 50% of americans are still under the poor scale…sigh, arrogant adults.

    So before going after countries that are civilized why not start with those horrible places first? Start with the root instead of the cover

  • They’re all old hags who have never gotten laid because they looked as though someone beat the shit out of them with the ugly stick and are trying to exact revenge of the male populace for avoiding them like the plague.

    If the UN is demanding this ban…. WHAT ABOUT THE DAMN SM PLAY THATS ALL OVER THE FUCKING WORLD?!

  • The only thing UN is doing is supplying rapists with a scapegoat for the cause of their need to rape.

    This is no different from blaming video games as a cause for a person’s violent tendencies rather than looking back into their past for the actual cause/s.

    • Which just goes to show, we learned nothing from the Holocaust.

      “Protect the children” was one of Hitler’s favorite war cries as an excuse to continue to rob people of their rights as individuals. This, along with a cascading scapegoat combo until no one was left that would dare publicly decry their views.

        not that I am claiming that all feminists are like that.. just that the most popular/well known ones are..

  • I think that if they ban hentai … they’ll just start raping women on subways for real more often.

    When will people quit trying to destroy the fantasy worlds .. we create .. after all it’s not real .. . and their employing VA to do all that screaming and stuff. So women are making money off this stuff … if women are willing to do it …

    • Though it seems that this letter is written from a female-oriented point of view, I definitely agree with anything and everything stated in it. I’m most certainly going to sign and send it.

      I’m pretty impressed that people are actually putting this much honest effort into protecting eroge and such from Equality Now’s pretty much corrupt campaign.

      So thanks, LunarSD!

      • The Pragmatist says:

        The reason it is written from a female-oriented point of view is because the attacks are entirely based on the same point of view. People bastardizing the term “feminist” to mean “complying with our chosen moral codes and bias against males” rather than “for the general benefit of women as a gender” are responsible for this censorship, exploiting their idea of what a woman should be as a crowbar. The letter(s) serve to correct the unspoken (and thus implicitly accepted) assumption that women don’t have rape fantasies, women aren’t sexual, women are not supposed to ever act submissive, and so on. Equality Now and similar groups do NOT represent the silent majority of women that don’t condone real rape but at the same time aren’t stupid enough to think that banning fictional depictions of something will do anything at all to end the real-world performance of it.

        Feminism is the foot in the door, so correcting the perverted use of “feminism” slams that door shut, and does so in a much more permanent fashion…plus, it keeps them from claiming that a bunch of evil single mid-20s white men are trying to silence them through hate speech. Not that Equality Now would say something like that. Wait, shit.

        • “Normal people”, my dear Anon? That is the illusion yielded by a constricted, culturally ignorant, and oppressive worldview.

          Aside from the fact that what’s moral in one culture is not necessarily so in another, I doubt you have the ability to sufficiently define what “normal” would look like given a singular windowpane of experience. IOW,you are not the DSM-V.

          I’d like to add your own violent remark about people in pits and how you seem to regard yourself as a “normal person” with your tongue-in-cheek last sentence. A sentence which also happens to use the name of god in vain, if you’re one of those religious people.

        • “At any rate, we sure as hell know it works for Japanese culture. And I dare say it has worked for me too.”

          I wish we could round up all the people like you and execute them in a pit.

          my god. so normal people are now more violent than fantasy seeking people 😀

        • >>Wasn’t there some research done which proved that porn and such related material reduced rape?

          >At any rate, we sure as hell know it works for Japanese culture. And I dare say it has worked for me too.

          Either Aristotle or one of his pupils also stated that seeing things that are socially unacceptable such as murder and rape is a perfect outlet and prevents society from actually becoming that way. He therefore encouraged people to go to theatres and watch the plays there.

          Since going to the theatres Aristotle was talking about could be loosely translated into watching hentai and playing eroge, this still holds true.

        • Various studies of human sexuality has found that 85% of all healhty adult women have rape and submission fantasies. It is rare for a healthy woman not to have such fantasies. It isn’t that they want to experience it in real life— but the fantasy of being “caught up” and “powerless” and “forced” to be a purely sexual object appeals to certain parts of their subconsious.

          Some women recoil from any such depictations of their “inner” desires, just as some people have a strong reaction to homosexual acts.

        • >Wasn’t there some research done which proved that porn and such related material reduced rape?

          At any rate, we sure as hell know it works for Japanese culture. And I dare say it has worked for me too.

        • [You do know what you’re trying to pull off is also known as the “slippery slope fallacy”?]

          You do realize what you’re trying to pull off is also known an the “straw man fallacy”?

        • Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
          ~C.S. Lewis

        • Comiket 76 had quite a few female and mixed gender circles asking people to take a look at their hardcore bondage and rape fantasies.

          That was even outside of the BoysLove section. Banning hentai will do much more than just upsetting a few twenty something guys on the internet. Banning hentai will also censor the freedom of expression for hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of actual real life Japanese women who probably do not even know Equality Now exists.

        • Martin Niemoeller: the Lutheran minister who lived in Hitler’s Germany during the 1930s and 1940s.
          “In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

        • While the group of people who lose something might be rather small, the group of people who would actually benefit from such a ban is non-existent. Moralists who feel more comfortable about themselves if things they don’t like get banned don’t count.

          And I’m curious just how exactly you’re going to “debunk” the “slippery slope fallacy”.

        • Aren’t women with rape fantasies in a minority much like pedophiles and other such things?

          People are whipping themselves into a rage to defend rape hentai but I’m not seeing what the point is. Who loses if we don’t get it anymore? Certainly not the vast majority of women (or people in general).

  • Fucking bored housewives with too much time on their fucking hands. Get to help dying children in Africa, or free Tibet or whatever, just get the fuck off from the fictional fucking stuff. Leran to fucking see the fucking difference between the real fucking world and fiction. There, I fucking snapped.

    • I’m starting to feel like I belong to a small group of people left in the world that can STILL differentiate between reality and fantasy. games encourage rape, health reforms encourage death panels??!!?? Misanthropy is setting in again.

      • @susume:

        No ~ Your not the only one…

        I’m with you, within the (that) small group, who can differentiate between fantasy and reality.

        I am – *just* – amazed by who actually believes all those stories, theories, and “deluded scare tactics” – that are being flung around like shite in a wind-storm.

        Many people prefer the safety-net of untruth, of a mass crowd of dementia, and all willing to becoming a standard lemming who will follow anyone off a cliff if told to do so.

        ~ and I find all those who follow such theories as seriously *mind hurt/fucked*

  • This is ridiculous, no, it’s rather a bad joke. Laws are not to protect fictional women, they are to ensure humans security and freedom. So fuck you UN, fuck you feminists!! Hope you get AIDS and cancer for christmas present!! Human rights violation because fictional women get raped? {facepalmed} Grow up.. Next time are you going to accuse Voldemort of murder?

  • all they want to stop is rape and sexual violence ageist women. but that doesn’t really mean they stop making hentai. there’s a loop hole here which can japan still produce hentai. XP

  • It was just in the papers the other day, in South Africa has the most rape crimes in the world and 26% of the males admit having raped someone.
    26%!!! If so many people already admitted it, that means about everybody raped and got raped there

    go do something about that, faminazis

    besides, if you’re planning on banning rape-themed hentai, you’re banning about 70% of all hentai

  • misterclock says:

    I think those femidiots should be working towards helping women in truly oppresive nations like Saudi Arabia and Afhganistan, where REAL, not fictional, women are treated as second-class citizens, at best, or punching bags, at worst. I’m guessing these femi-losers are just jumping on the bandwagon from the rapelay ban situation.

  • Banning rape hentai is more important than news like the mentally ill girl forced to live in a pigsty by her father? UN really needs to get their priority straight.

    If rape hentai is as legal as it is in Japan, then there would be no thrill/kinky factor for doing something rebellious as that wouldn’t it? Why can’t they understand that.

    Much like violence in video games, there should be a study on the effects of people watching hentai rape anime against those who do not in relation to the intent to commit rape.

  • I wonder how many women will be out of the job because of a ban. there are a lot of work women do in the hentai biz from voice acting too artiest will be out of the job. this will also mean a lot of art by Noizi Ito (a women) will be illegal. because she she drawls for Loli hentai games. If you did not know shes the artist of Shakugan no Shana novel and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya novels.

    • Clearly you misunderstand. This isn’t about ‘women’, it’s about the evil Japanese making marketable goods with unsavory themes ON PURPOSE.

      If that still doesn’t make sense, think of the children. The ones that don’t exist.

  • What people don't understand is they can tackle multiple issues at once. thats what branches are for. so while they are tackling this, they are tackling those rape issues in Africa and blah blah thats a organization.

    Another thing is they dont care about low this and not proven this in japan that shit doesn't matter. Or else every damn person wouldn't be attacking fictional and having japan eroge industry cracking under pressure.

    I feel that they may crack, you know japan is all about pride and not bringing shame and care about how the world sees them. and they have that bid for the UN-SC.

  • I wonder how many women will be out of the job because of a ban. there are a lot of women how work in the hentai biz from voice acting too artiest will be out of the job. this will also mean a lot of art by Noizi Ito (a women) will be illegal. because she she drawls for Loli hentai games. If you did not know shes the artist of Shakugan no Shana novel and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya novels.

    • Don’t forget, my dear Anon, the country being targeted by what would normally be toothless demands to everyone else, is one that has political figures that are too sensitive too criticism from the West and would rather give in for the sake of political expediency rather than agreeing on any dubious moral grounds.

      IOW, Japan needs to grow a fucking spine, and not just their tentacle demons.

  • UN are fucking racist (Otakus are a race) They shouldnt do anything, When I become the president of the US I will give a Presidential Parody to all Otakus wrongfully in imprisonment for being Otakus. And end all of this once in for all, The States have all ready done eoght damage to the Japaneses people already. Let them have this one

  • Wow, these bitches need to know; other than the fact that there are more real life rape, gender discrimination, violence on women and child abuse out there, there are actually MALES who also suffer a lot of pain in the arse for getting cheated by their own soulmates, getting their pr0n taken away due to feminist’s diet and sued after a stripper ripped her butthole apart with a strap-on penis.

    EQUALITY my kangaroo’s arse~!!

  • hentai should be banned just for being shit.

    men who wank off to hentai have issues. Obviously a bunch of sad otaku’s who can’t appreciate real women.

    real (western)women = win

    fucking wanking off to hentai otakus need shooting

  • AnonnyNonny says:

    They certainly have been active lately. I blame people like Joss Whedon and events like his “Can’t Stop the Serenity” dinner that specifically raise the money that Equality Now is using for their oddly focused crusades. While I liked Serenity and Whedon, I’m beginning to feel that his faith in certain charities is grossly misplaced. I suppose I’ll have to stop supporting him, not that anyone will care.

    It just seems to me that this is a strange, unimportant target to go after when there are more devastating problems to deal with.

  • this is retarded as usual. im in japan at the moment and like stated crime rates are so low and its actually safe. reason for violence is because the media helps plus on tv theres always some form of violence while japan its drama and comedy. so stupid what females trying todo whats next erase porn when it gives of one of the highest profit gain in the world.

    • You ain’t just whistling dixie, steve.

      I can leave my rucksack in the middle of the street and find it in the same place untouched half a day later. And that is on the off-chance someone doesn’t run after me saying something along the lines of I dropped my bag.

  • btw, not only is there rape in straight hentai. There is also alternative related stuff (dick girls, tentacles, bestality), yaoi and yuri rape related material as well as other the sub genres.

    So if this group is hell bent, do away with all they have the guts. Otherwise, it would definitely truly reveal this group is just a bunch of two-faced fem-nazi fucks who have no other thing better to do than direct their angry vaginas at pointless bullshit.

    Equality now my ass. I don’t want women controlling my happiness. Sic ‘No Ma’m’ on their asses.

  • Feminism and equality is out of place here. Feminism should only be about same rights to men a women, not this. Clearly, in japan there is a lot fanatism for yaoi, men rape, etc.. so i’d dare to say there really is equality over there. Should that be banned then too? if so then it means not only this isn’t about equal rights and progressit, but self discrimination and retrograde.

  • It is they who inadequate.

    Womens being raped only because they allow it. How about teaching womans how to kick balls, and psychologically train them to be like men, meaning they shouldn’t cling to their precious pussys like it’s the most sacred thing in the world.

  • The UN is the most useless organization since its establishment after the WWII; it can’t stop wars and can’t stop people/civilians dying in wars; it’s all about talk, talking about crap;

    Maybe the UN should ban “Ringu” (Ring) too, because Sadako may come out and kill you all!

  • Don’t they have better things to do than worry about the status of fictional rape? Like, say, trying to stop REAL rape or helping REAL people?

    2D girls don’t need help! They should worry about the real world instead of wasting time and resources bitching about the content of video games and comic books!

  • C’MON, MAN !!!!!! THIS SHIT GETS SOOOOO FUCKING OLD NOW, DO THEY HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN STICKING THEIR ASSHOLES IN OTHER COUNTRIES’ BUSINESS ? WHEN THE WORLD IS IN A FUCKING DEPRESSION? DON’T FUCK WITH ME!!! DO SOMTHING ABOUT REALISTIC STUFFS LIKE THE FUCKING GDODAMN SHIT DEPRESSION FIRST BEFORE START TALKING ABOUT FICTIONAL STUFFS.
    MOREOVER, TAKE DOWN THE FUCKING HABEAS CORPUS IF ALL THEY TRY TO DO IS VIOLATE IT !!! FUNNY HOW THEY’RE ALL TALKS BUT PROVIDE NO PROOFS, NO STATISTICS AND THEY CAL THEMSELVES POLITICIANS ? FUCKING CAPITALISM BITCH PIGS!!! I LOVE EUROPE SINCE FRENCH WAS ONE OF MY NATIONALITY BUT SERIOUSLY, MAY KRAUSER RAPE YOU FUCTARD ASSHOLES !!! ALL HAIL KRAUSER !!!

  • Hmmmmm so they want to ban fictional rape but real rape and the disrespect of women in afghanistan they don’t even wanna touch.Why don’t these feminist bitches get a vibrator and pleasure themselves to the hentai their trying to ban I know they would love it. 🙂

  • I don’t know what Japans going to do about this, I mean didn’t they already give in and did some bans already. I can’t tell. All I know is that UN just crossed the line there. Plus the letter that sent to Japan from them that I’ve read is totally ridiculous. They’re bashing Japan way too much, and they are they country with less crime with sexual violence and etc. Like I said, WTF UN!

  • agnes chan strike back!!

    “in 2009 the holy empire of britannia (leadership but too many stupid feminist) invaded japan, in the face of britannia new weapons (U.N and unicef) the japanese defenses crumbles, and its citizens loss their freedom, their rights, their lolis and our hentai. even their anime and games were taken…….they were called area 11.”
    -code geass 2006-
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL HAAAAAAAAAAIL BRITAAAAAAANNIAAAAAA.

  • I haven’t seen the UN, Equality Now, CEDAW, etc to try stop certain countries where people can legally abuse, marry, starve, rape a child/girl/women.

    Bunch of brain dead, useless and spineless hypocrites.

    I will never support or contribute to such organizations. I had donated my money to local churches, volunteer group and community aid organizations, where they help people/environment for real.

    Oh, I will also not vote or sign petition for them.

    I hope you do the same too.

  • This is stupid, If this goes through, they will probably put a fair amount of people out of work. For what? Some women that dont even exist?
    One of the Equality Now ladies probably caught her son playing an eroge and now the whole world has to suffer.
    They focus their efforts on more meaningful situations. Like the situation were wives in afghanistan are being raped or they dont get fed type of things.
    This is just crippling our rights as human beings.

  • Thank goodness the UN has solved every other, more important problem within/between its participating nations and can now focus its resources on the global plight of fictional women being fucked.

  • lol

    there’s plenty of non-hentai real-life 3d porno [even if it is fake acting] outside japan’s areas…

    If this actually hits, I’d LOVE to see a ‘war’ explode where the reasoning is WE WANT HENTAI!

    “Video games made me do it” like any sane judge would condone that excuse.

    Now it’s “Hentai made me do it” wait a sec, I’ve never heard THAT one yet…

  • So they want to protect “fictional women” from “fictional rape” so much?

    Then how about prosecuting “fictional murder” in shooter games or “fictional warcrimes” in WW2 sims or “fictional carjacking” in GTA also?

    What a buch of hypocrites.

  • Here we go again…..why can’t these fucking bitches just go save REAL starving children or something….
    Mass e-mail condemnation time!!!!!
    Death threats!!!
    Rape their daughters(if they even have 1)!!!

  • Anyone have an email or web site to post complaints about this shit to the UN? I would like to point out better places they could be spending there time and money and it happens to be where real women are being oppressed/abused/raped.

    • in countries in the middle east or old style islam, they cut off a womans clit so they cant enjoy sex, now isnt that a hate crime a violation of womans rights???? come on this actually happens and these people are complaining about anime porn WTF!

    • Don’t waste your breath trying to compromise with them since their must be fucking block head to full out something like that. If you really care then sent a bomb to they headquarters, at least a bomb is much louder and MAY make them pay attention.

  • This would make sense if the organization was called the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against 2D Women. They really seem to care about our animated, buxom bombshells and lolis.

  • UN is stupid… Unicef even stupider. But what UN is trying to do is stupid. This is total censorship… Eventually they will ban regular books and everything and we will all be medieval and stuffs.

  • Naked Snake says:

    I think that this is the funniest thing ever.I really hate feminist ,gut I REALLY hate Japs and all their shit.I’m at a crossroad .Well I say lets find or make a giant nuclear tentacle monster and send all feminist to Japan so they get tentacle raped and then the thing blows up and erradicates Japan .EVERYONE WINS!!!!!!!!!

  • Well the news has already proven and I quote,
    “The suggestion that fictional works such as manga serve to promote sexual violence is entirely unproven; it is notable that Japan has some of the lowest rates of crime and sexual violence in the world”,
    is false because most of the girls admit to having been sexually attacked by the age of 10 there and its so common that they don’t report it because it happens to every one all the time.
    So everyone can drop that line as a defense for Japan ’cause its the same thing they all tell the judge when arrested “it can’t be helped”. But in any case brain washing with media can accomplish this in this manner which is what they are saying in the wrong way.

  • Realizing their complete uselessness, their corruption and failure at helping any real person at all, the UN seems to have shifted their aims to helping fictonal people. They’re already an almost fictional organization (from a comedy, I should say) to begin with, so it’s normal they try to protect their equals

  • I’m glad that the UN is finally going after something real, forget all that two bit genocide in Africa, this is what really matters.

    I think we should ban the UN because it’s hazardous to fapping

  • No One Important says:

    What about European-drawn cartoon porn, or actual works of art that feature nudity and/or violence?

    Are they going to ban Castlevania because you can kill naked female demons?

    What happens if banning hentai doesn’t fix the problem, or causes more problems?

  • kappuccinoo says:

    they should worry more about feeding people and trying to find weapons of mass destruction instead protecting “fictional women”. hell there are real woman who need this type of protection in other 3rd world countries.
