Loli Ban Revived


The LDP has recovered enough from its election drubbing to begin demanding a fresh ban of all things loli.

The LDP, with the support of their cultist allies the Komeito, have finalised another draft of the legislation they failed to get passed in the last session of the Diet, which they intend to get passed this session.

The content of the legislation is said to be the same as the previous bill.

However, with the LDP in complete disarray and having hardly any seats, it is unlikely to pass many laws by itself, and the ruling DPJ is sceptical of the proposed law, saying it threatens freedom of expression and might lead to arbitrary abuse of police power.

It is thought the LDP is now more intent on causing problems for the DPJ through tactical use of the proposed law, rather than actually seriously expecting to get it passed.

Critics of the LDP’s obsession with public morality have pointed out that the Japanese legal definition of a “child” for the purposes of this legislation is anyone under 18, whereas for most of the developed world the definition ranges from 13 to 16, with some even allowing 16-year-olds to work as prostitutes.

Besides Japan, only America regards all under-18s as minors, and none of these countries enforce bans on the display of genitals as Japan does. Were the LDP to pass its law, Japan would have by far the most draconian anti-porn laws amongst the major developed nations…

    The only way, this law can be pass, is if theres extremists who'd want this law to pass by creating loli/shota sex crimes themselves and blame it on our beloved eroge. No, I don't want this to happen but the cards seem to point out that way.

    Then they'll go all blitzkrieg with their law afterward.

    I don't know, I'm still unsure about having loli manga delivered to my door, running into the risk someone might open it. Probably just my paranoia

    Yes, that's really a thing i envy you about. No matter how many hardliners and moralfags you got, you still have a very solid freedom of expression layed out in constitution which wins in the end. I hope for you it stays that way. Wish i would be the same where i live.

    The Founding Fathers of the US might've been a bunch of old hypocritical bastards, but they knew what they were doing when they drew up the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. They knew that it was important to keep Church and State separate from one another.

    Which still confuses me as to why the majority voted for Bush's Christfag ass two fucking times over the past ten years. There had to have been some shady shit going down under the table during those years. I wouldn't be surprised if someone tries the same shit in japan that was pulled in America back during the turn of the century.

    i wonder why they keep focusing on this loli ban bill; and if it didn't passed they just wasting resources and tax. instead of focusing on the loli ban they should focus on improving their defense and reconstruction plan from attack such as icbm and terrorist.

    And still, they couldn't get rid of all that crazy prOn from the last millenium, that makes non-japanese think badly about japan.

    a crime is not a crime if it doesn't happen,since 2d children don't exist there is no crime.
    Also if somebody would be saying they will sexualy abuse you and you recorded that,then you pretty much have proof of somebody threathened you in some way.

    So they should just bend over and drop this banning already

    Let's not forget written lolis and shotas too, hmmm?

    I mean, this ban is based on the context of artistic expression and the depiction of fictional children, so why not talk about the depictional of fictional (since we don't know if those children actually lived where it was written they did) Biblical children then. I mean...

    .... And Jesus sayeth unto his Disciples, "Let the little ones come unto me, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven"....

    If taken out of context, the way some people demonize even the most innocent of pictures of, say Miu from Ichigo Mashimaro.... then that would make Jesus one of the World's kindest pedophiles, wouldn't it?

    Because anyone can read anything they want to in a subject without really seeing the matter for what it really is. Perception is the problem here.

    Just so you know, I'm knocking Jesus, or those who choose to follow the Prince of Peace.... but I really do get pissed the fuck off by some of His most fervent followers for their rampant ignorance. >_< I'm going off to kill zealots and council members on Diablo II. And since I'm murdering in cold blood those following their rights to freedom of religion, be sure and call the cops on me.

    I live in Europe, and every country i can think of here in the european union has 18 years as the age of coming of age. If there is a state with another age, then it would probably one of the new former sovjet member states. So at age of 18 no longer a minor, with a few nuances from country to country (sometimes deliberately, sometimes remnants in the laws of the old age of coming of age at e.g. 21. What does differ between the member states is the age of sexual consent, where i live it's 16, but there are countries with age 17 or 14. Here there is currently a debate ongoing to lower that age.

    I hate censor in ero!! I mean it totally messes up the fine composition of the picture and sometimes it's only a thin line, that actually doesn't cover anything but bothers like hell!!
    + mainly every otaku can draw...So banning 'public loli' is like creating a whole new underground market for doujinshi...They just didn't think this trough...

    (I am not an Anon Member just too lazy to register). It's like annoying to see the LDP being too persistent.

    Personally anything offending should be considered when its a blatant and intentional attack directed at you personally whether it be mental or physical. That's where the crime starts. It's all case by case process.

    Really I don't know anymore. Loli advertisements or porn being sold. It may offend me to see it stores, but is there any such proof that loli pron is a personal attack to me in anyway? No. I think not. There is no wording or verbiage that personally directs it to me. Is it literally telling me or the populas where we can actually go and buy an actual child off the black market? No I don't think so. Frankly it's upsetting. Well this can be regarded for not just loli but any other type of porn.

    And this brings up another issue. Why is any kind of consensual sexual relationships considered such a bad thing? When love is involved, why is there a problem to the point of crime? Promotion of consensual sexual relationships and love shouldn't be looked down upon. Seriously. Of course your parents have the utter right to prevent you from having relationship. They are raising you, giving you a house to live in and food to eat. You don' own the house, so the parents get to make the rules until you can move out, support yourself, and/or contribute to society (pay taxes, etc).

    The government however doesn't really have any right to get involved in something on the level of a family dispute.

    Really, when it comes to MEDIA SUCH AS VIDEOS, PICTURES, etc its all come down to technology. Things are too readily and easily available to us that we no longer know how to parent our kids, or keep things in moderation from one another. It's like episode 1 of Kino's journey about the country's citizens that could reach each other's thoughts. It's sorta at that level now. We see things and know things about other people that we wish we hadn't learned about in the first place. Privacy (even without the invasion of privacy laws) is no longer here. It's like looking into a glass house. We can't keep to ourselves anymore because we know what everyone else is doing.

    This is truly why this damn loli ban is even getting the slightest bit of attention. Well it goes even deeper. But yeah...had these panics not gone on if you had given it about 50-100 years without change of development of internet it would have been common place. =_= Really. Sorry that was long winded. Feel free to copy and paste this in the forum.

    "Were the LDP to pass its law, Japan would have by far the most draconian anti-porn laws amongst the major developed nations…"

    But then the market in Japan wouldn't be held up by their massive porn industry anymore, and would be left with one leg. With UNICEF working on banning hentai, it'll be left without a head, too.
    So if you want to lose all your money and destroy Japan's economy, Mr. LDP, then please, kill off the things we Otaku thrive on. Make us rapists.

    It's good to see that the ruling party is against it so far. Hopefully it is just the one party just trying to be a pain for the other. I'm not one for loli, but it's still freedom of expression.

    It doesn't matter what we say or do, they are adults and are responsible for their own actions, weather they pass no-loli laws or not, they are able to make up their own minds.

    I'd like to point out that the stuff we see on the internet from Japan is not what people see in Akihabara... So it stands to reason why something like a ban on loli might even occur in the minds of anyone, its not even unreasonable, but it does need some tweaking to appeal to freedom-of-speech standards.. kissXsis doesn't show any loli porn, there is so far no intercourse, but its essentially loli pornography, HOWEVER, there are people who wont read kissXsis because its too perverted.

    So it really makes sense to me that someone might make a stand against loli pornography, and I like the idea of 'no-excessive-violence' in my porn.

    yeah it was from some eroge game and we know the xbox has some of the most violent shit on there. Its a huge double standard men and brutally hurt men, women can do some the worse things to men and nothing could happen. Yet when a women get hurt by a man heaven's wrath will rain on that poor soul. If she had it coming or not. I seen it Cops so many times the women whooped the guy's ass, busted a bottle over his head, etc. When the cops come if she has a few minor injuries the man will go to jail before the women. I even remember there was an article where I women cut up her man with a knife and she go off with "disorder conducted" when it was and should have been attempted murder.

    On the minimally positive side, the fact that the bill is roughly the same as before means that even the LDP ignored CEDAW. CEDAW's suggestion was, after all, to include banning pornography "that promotes violence against women" in this bill.
