Save the Children: “Ban Loli Manga!”


Top children’s charity Save the Children has explicitly called for a ban on loli manga in order to “protect sexual norms and morals.”

An excerpt from Save the Children Japan’s recently published memorandum on Japanese laws relating to child pornography and prostitution:

4. Regarding materials featuring non-existent children, considering the point of view that “sexual norms and sexual morality must be protected” and that “a healthy environment for youth to grow up in should be preserved,” we should think that a ban must be put in place.

A statement notable for not even bothering to pretend such a ban is intended to reduce crimes against children – it is instead merely based on the notion that some forms of sexual expression are morally wrong and must be banned.

Although generally perceived as a secular organisation campaigning for child welfare, Save the Children’s English founder Eglantyne Jebb was a zealous Christian who claimed Christ personally spoke to her on a number of occasions; her mental illness is usually forgotten in deference to her contribution to the creation of the modern extended childhood.

The group’s Japanese chapter appears to be aligned with a number of openly Christian or feminist “child advocacy” groups.

Their statement also cites a publication by an EU alliance of children’s charities, eNASCO, which outlines their support for criminalising art they object to morally, which they call “pseudo-imagery” in an attempt to conflate fantasy with actual photographs of illegal acts:

For example, there are many child abuse images which are realistic images of a nonexisting child engaged in sexual conduct, or ‘pseudo images’.

These include non-photographic visual depictions of child sexual abuse (i.e. computer generated images (CGIs), drawings, animation) as well as ‘pseudo-photos’ or videos.

In our experience this type of material has clear risks insofar as it can form part of a subculture of sexual abuse material and if it is not criminalised the police are not able to seize the materials or disrupt the network of traders.

eNACSO consider that the existence of such materials allows offenders to deny and minimise the impact of sexual abuse and encourages distorted thinking about sexual crimes against children.

Furthermore, there is evidence to support the fact that photographs of children engaged in sexual activity are used for grooming children into child pornography, and that pseudo-photographs will also be used for this purpose.

However, possession, production and distribution of pseudo images is not yet illegal in many Member States.

RECOMMENDATION: All states should ensure that pseudo-images are made illegal.

It would appear the rights of fictional children now supplant those of real adults.

    Any time someone uses words such as "morals" and "right" and "norms" the first thing a healthy critical-thinking-enabled mind will produce is questions such as: "WHOSE morals? Who decides what is right? WHOSE norms? What makes your norms or morals more 'right' than mine or his or hers?"

    Morality and judgment of what is right and wrong is entirely a personal and wholly subjective set of decisions. To say that one person's or one group's choices are the "norm' is an outright lie, especially with the permeation of the Internet into most aspects of the lives of nearly every person in the world. The notions of what is "normal" or the classic Miller test bullet-point of "community standards" or even the Constitution's mention of a "trial by a jury of one's peers" no longer apply geographically or even within an individual country thanks to the Internet.

    My "community" and "peers" are...well, people on the Internet, participating in sites like Sankaku Complex, Hongfire, 4chan, and other anime-oriented corners of the Web. Most of the people in close physical proximity don't know me or anything about me, and I choose to engage in whatever the minimum of interaction with them is. Thus, if I were to be tried for wrongdoing, a jury of people who are of the same race, financial class, age, etc. would most likely NOT be a representative jury of MY peers. Trial by Sankaku Complex would be much more appropriate than trial by physical neighbor.

    Back to the original point: morality and everything that goes with it is a PERSONAL CHOICE, often a RELIGIOUS CHOICE. Law should not be based on a moral code, it should be based on preventing the physical, financial, mental, or similar injury of one person by another, and if those laws happen to fall within the scope of someone's personally chosen moral code, so much the better.

    tl;dr: nothing should be illegal unless it hurts other non-consenting people, morals should have nothing to do with law, and it's interesting how people who wish to force their morals on others never identify WHOSE morals they're trying to force upon those others.

    Ah, but the PROBLEM is that 'mental injury' is in the eye of the beholder, and most of the TRUE mental injury that children have after sex with adults comes from contact with the police and psychologists where they are brainwashed into thinking that someone harmed them and have stress because of that.

    The only 'mental harm' (and it isn't) in cases where people DIDN'T have that contact is a more liberal sexual morality, where having sex outside of marriage or with numerous people is okay.... which is not really harm except in the minds of the sexual conservatives.

    And that comes full circle: it's "mental harm" by one person's moral code, not by any kind of peer-reviewable reproducible scientific research that has no moral slant.

    This is plainly sad. Time after time I read these articles and wonder this "pedo-panic" has stricken people so deeply. Pedos were always around. They're not new, so why is everyone suddenly so tasked to burn the forest down to get a few wolves. It's scary to think that we have a modern age "witch hunt" going on right in front of our faces....and logic won't permit (the majority) to even realize it.

    All these "save the children" groups need to stop bitching so much, if they spent the time they use whining about thought crimes to actually save real kids, hell, pedophilia might even cease to exist.

    But no, they cry and throw their toys about, I just don't see how anyone at all will take them seriously in the future. It's the same with feminists, they started out with great intentions and fighting the good fight, but now they're just a jokeand everyone treats them asuch.

    Pedophilia has been around for thousands of years, if it could be wiped out, it would've been gone by now.

    “sexual norms and sexual morality must be protected”

    so they eventually plan to go after homosexuality ?

    You know the saying that playing too much can cause one to lose sight of what is real and what is not...

    I think it's pretty much the other way around. People not doing the thing much or at all don't really understand whats going on and make assumptions on their feelings. I think it's pretty much the same with loli manga, as it to following:

    Schoolshooters and others don't come from these games, they come from varies of things that might lead to gaming, NOT NECESSARILY tough. You can pretty much get the idea with airplane simulators and 9/11. They didn't run into tower becouse they tought it'd fun to do as they did on the simulator. It's for other reasons. Airplane simulator is not the one to blame.

    people don't seem to understand that things like this and other pornography actually LOWERS sexual crimes. its just like violent video games. there is actually a visible trend in the amount of violent crimes dropping to the violence in video games going up. people NEED an outlet. no outlet = they find one on their own. if you ban it all it'll do is make people WANT it more and it'll even draw more people into it.

    True. I so loev these Western groups (unfortunately, from my country) that go off on moralfaggotry screeds while subscribing to Western ways of thinking about sex. As I've said in another story, the West sees sex as something dirty and vulgar outside of marriage (and "compatible parts"), while most of Asia has a less taboo look @ sex (Philippines = see Sharia Law & Japan via Shintoism = for the LULZ). Also, I haet that they hide behind religion so damn much (I'm a Christian, but I have lots of restraint on the zeal, which is why I'm here). It's all moral for them, but they don't get the fact that there's a limit to how much ppl can take.

    Also, morals aren't supposed to rely on scientific data.

    "Furthermore, there is evidence to support the fact that photographs of children engaged in sexual activity are used for grooming children into child pornography, and that pseudo-photographs will also be used for this purpose."

    Isn't this some kind of contradiction? How can there be evidence of something that "will also be used", as in the future?

    I guess there might be evidence of me gutting some stupid, uneducated fucks sometime down the line, too.

    Not me really am enthusiastic the loli, but because of that heavy to imagine that this would be the largest child protection trouble on the world. Big the starvation, the poverty, a lot in third country in the world the children may not allow the childhood to themselves though, they would starve to death together with their family otherwise.

    But everybody alike may not be a back.

    If you care about this, start arming however you best can under the laws of your country. The day will come when we will have to tell those who would take away our rights that we aren't giving them up without a fight. Make sure you are ready.

    Not this shit again...

    It seems like every three seconds there's another ignorant mother fucker or group of them trying to ban anything and everything all the time for being "morally wrong". Fuck them. There's probably no chance of them succeeding anyway for a time at least... Though in the future as the populace becomes more ignorant and more likely to ignore logic and reason in favor of jumping on anything the media tells them to by the way of knee-jerk reactions it might actually happen. Though fortunately at this point some of the luckier nations have rights which aren't being over-ruled by mobs of retards screaming about their need to be the ultimate authority of all that is right and just in the world, but that might not always be the case.

    Charity organisations such as UNICEF and Save The Children were created to give aid to help children in poor countries.

    REAL, flesh-and-blood 3D children, not artificially drawn 2D ones!

    Yep.... and the fact is that most 'crimes against children' are 'statutory rape'.... which shouldn't even be a crime in the first place. Nor should child pornography.

    The ONLY thing they should be going after is when people force children and even TEENAGERS AND ADULTS into sexual situations against their will..... which 99.9 times out of 100, is not what is going on.

    Truth is, the Bible is full of holes, first of all, if God is truly good, how can he create anything evil like Satan or even us humans?

    Some say that good is the void of evil, but how God can be complete if he doesn't know evil?

    Also, christians have an strange view of things, like in Brazil where a girl who was raped by her foster dad should be banned from society, while the rapist should just seek God and be forgiven (Die you temptress :p).

    What those "elevens" (yeah, Code Geass) should realize is that the Catholic church hates us.

    Hey guys let's start a riot
    If they ban diaper fetish or infantilism I'm going to start a resistance group and kick some probably hypocritical people's ass straight into hell
    They forgot that god loves us for who we are no matter what we like or do he still likes us for who we truly are. The catholic church has forgotten these very words and are more than likely brainwashing are new generation with things like homosexuals and non normal sex life people are bad.
    The only church that I know accepts people no matter who or what they are is the presbyterian church. They are the ones to follow not the catholic church
