UNICEF: “Freedom of Expression Should Be Restricted”


The head of UNICEF has condemned Japan for failing to pass tougher anti-loli laws, dismissing concerns about human rights out of hand: “If it causes harm to children, freedom of expression should be restricted.”

UNICEF’s Executive Director Ann Veneman, an American career bureaucrat, made the remarks in a press conference, saying that Japan’s failure to pass more draconian laws was “a violation of the rights of children” and that it “allowed access to people in other countries,” apparently ignoring the fact that distributing pornography involving minors online or otherwise is already quite illegal in Japan.

Japan already rigourously enforces bans on the making and distribution of pornography featuring participants under the age of 18, and the efforts of the LDP to secure an even more wide reaching ban on “simple possession” were widely castigated as being unnecessary and likely to be abused; in the end the bill was defeated.

It should be noted that the UNICEF in question is the “real” UNICEF, and part of the UN proper, whereas Agnes Chan’s UNICEF Japan is actually an independent Japanese organisation which merely uses the UNICEF name (with permission) to give itself an aura of legitimacy and encourage donations; UNICEF Japan has nothing to do with the UN.

    If freedom of expression should be restricted then UNICEF it self should be restricted for expressing it's freedom of expression

    Surely "Restricting the Freedom of Expression" won't have any unentended consequences....

    Nor will recognising fictional (non-exhistant) characters as having rights, do anything harmful to other media...

    No siree!

    Japan is one of the biggest donators for UNICEF. This money is not only wasted, it's used to damage them. If they have any brains left they should stop payment...

    Yes, I agree. This is all just getting REALLY stupid. Do they have ANY idea what the consequences will be if they begin banning all the regular stuff that they show. This is nothing more then a plan to contain and destroy individuality.

    People wouldn't be blowing their own brains out they would do what humans are well known to do reject and start a new revolution.

    But they will privately stockpile explosives crafted from everyday tools (you will be surprised just how many ordinary items can be turned into a bomb) until they have enough. Then they will disregard the law and start bombing the heck out of the government with their makeshift bombs.

    When has a revolt ever follow legalities anyway?

    That's some twisted logic, but at least their intentions are made clear.

    that's what my art teacher said, he showed us a painting of cupid, rendered as a naked boy, pee pee and all. a nice painting made by a well known artist at the time.

    then he said... never do this or you will be smacked down by lawyers, feminists, etc. to "protect" the children. and i just sat back and went WTF, nothing wrong with that painting..

    just like when some rulers went around and chiseled the pee pees off the statues.. puritanical bastards! Leave Us Alone!

    On the cover of Nevermind is a naked baby showing his pee pee and people were offended by it.

    UNICEF and UN are only politicians and diplomats that assemble meetings every other day just to talk about the same bullshit again and again. Would you please mind to apply pressure on countries with bigger problems, instead of criticizing and trying to ban 2d?

    "If it causes harm to children, freedom of expression should be restricted.”

    Presumably, she's talking about drawings (whether stills or animated, whether created purely by hand or with a computer) and text.

    That would include maintenance, use, and safety manuals for all military hardware, and things which could be used against people ('children' is a sub-set of 'people').

    That would include maintenance, use, and safety manuals for non-military-intended explosives.

    That would include MDDS (Material Data Safety Sheets) on all potentially toxic compounds.

    The way she words it every thing with possible application of harming a kid should be banned. So Hamburger is harmful to children isn't it? KFC make kids fat, a kid can fall of a chair, kid get burn by oven, microwave gives off radiation...Cars might hit children, a children can accidentally cut themselves with scissors.

    so why aren't we banning these too ????

    back to the topic..how do they know what constitute as loli? just because I don't want the manga or anime I watched have women who look like they are 20 years above retirement age like in american...MUSCLE IS KING cartoon...

    I don't see the point of banning loli. If we can't get it through the interwebz, we can just draw our own. Then share it with our lolicon friends.

    Damn, people and their inability to accept Art nowadays...

    That is their intention. The closet-lolicons in UNICEF has had a lack of lolis. Therefore they will force all us lolicons to draw loli awesomeness, and then get a hold of it through any way possible.

    While some loli-cons like CP and child molestation, There are many of us who find this kind of 3D behavior disgusting.

    I'd be lying if i said loli didn't promote some sort of pedo mentality, but on the other side it helps sate the inner immoral desires of some.

    Honestly, id rather people pulling their dicks or mashing their clams to something drawn rather than something in which an innocent was hurt/abused.

    Real children are starving in Africa, real women are being raped in Africa, and real people are dying in Africa. Instead people like Ann Veneman, Agnes Chan and Equality Now are only concerned on spending large number of funds on complaining about fictional characters.

    Meanwhile I can guarantee you Ann Veneman, Agnes Chan and Equality Now heads are living excessively in expensive homes and feasting voraciously on expensive meals that they funnel from the actual funds that were supposed to go to the people who desperately needs it. There's no way they can reach to the top status without being corrupted like them nowadays.

    What exactly are the statistics for child rape of 3d children around the world? I promise that it cant be nearly as high as 2d rape, since it is perfectly legal to rape 2d children 2d children are raped by the millions! There are very few imaginary children in anime tha have NOT been raped (thank you very much rule 34). If 3d children where raped as opften, it would be considered the biggest crisis in history! Something NEEDS to be done!

    Fighting fictional drawings that cant fight back is better than going against REAL rape which can get Agnes and *feminazi idiots fucked by the mafia & others real promoters of loli and the like.

    Ah yes, UNICEF, home to Feminists & Islamists.
    Where Evidence is ignored and appeals to emotion rule supreme.
    Why they just rip themselve appart and stop trying to make live miserable for everyone else.

    They seem to be overly obsessed with non existent enities like drawn lolis and alah.

    "Likely to be abused" is RIGHT when it comes to enforcing simple possession. There have been several cases of people getting arrested in the U.S. after getting photos developed with their kids in bathtubs.

    I'm surprised the "Actual" UNICEF is wasting so much time while children in Africa are dying of Diarrhea(Polluted Water)and children are getting forced into marriage in some Muslim Countries.

    The new Prime minister should pass a Loli Bailout bill.

    well, that way they're safe. there's no mafia for 2d porn, but the 3d porn is saturated with it. they're just afraid of getting killed.

    which means, we need to form a 2d mafia, extorting money from conservative politicians with wrong world views, assassinating people like agnes and other shitheads for trying to mess with our profits and so.

    They'd do Africa a favor by using all those sleeping nukes around the world and end their misery. Fund other real organizations that the world can benefit from. Not backwards civilization that the only contribution they gave the world is AIDS and disease.

    They never thought that usually 2D lolis look NOTHING LIKE their 3d counterparts. Hell, 2D lolis are more often miniature adults (Jigoku Sensei Nube anyone? Kodomo no Chi... i mean, Jikan, anyone?)!

    I agree with your 2d vs 3d...
    however as a fellow 2d loli-con, you are lying to yourself if you believe that 2d loli isn't predominantly about 2d 'minors'.

    While i agree that 2d and 3d lolis look nothing alike and quite a few of us don't find minors IRL sexually attractive at all.

    (As a fellow 2d loli-con) please don't try to delude yourself that a majority of 2d loli-con are about adults; because it's most definitely not.

    You are in fact sexually peverse; meaning that what you sexually desire isn't quite the 'norm'(at least to a majority of the world).

    The underlying fact is, that loli IS immoral and perverted but it ISN'T harmful to anyone; except for maybe for the guy excessively abusing his cock.

    We are as much pedophiles, as people finding enjoyment of killing others in a video games, are killers.

    People who have a problem separating fantasy from reality are the true problem.
