“Rape Games Threaten Japan’s International Standing”


Japan’s cabinet and Prime Minister have been told they should ban “depictions of sexual violence” by the government’s Gender Equality Bureau, a cabinet level office.

From the minutes of the Gender Equality Bureau’s Gender Equality Planning Committee comes a complaint by minor author Kanna Kouzu, a member:

[This follows her complaining that police statistics show a long-term decrease in crimes involving sexual violence – she insists any decrease is because fewer women are reporting crimes to police, though without offering any evidence]

Lastly, there have been media reports about portrayals of sexual violence in advertising, manga, magazines and the like, and even on the Internet.

As a result, Japan has been receiving severe international criticism and this is a major international issue. There are extreme virtual depictions in PC games and similar, and internationally this is really a source of major criticism.

I think there’s such a thing as freedom of expression, but along with the child porn issue I’d like to see the government as a whole institute comprehensive countermeasures.

You really should consider this matter as it affects our position in the international community.

The “international criticism” to which the member refers?

No nation has protested to Japan about its “hentai” industry – in fact the only significant incidences of this so-called “international criticism” have been centred on a feminist group proven to be liars, a UN feminist body closely associated with that group, and a brief CNN muck-raking campaign run by an adulteress inexplicably keen on lecturing others on proper morality.

Japan has genuinely been receiving severe and sustained international criticism over its support for whaling from governments, media and pressure groups alike (all of which it has completely ignored), and yet no members have bothered to push for a ban on whaling.

It seems rather clear by now that pressure for a ban has nothing to do with international criticism and everything to do with the authoritarian tendencies of Japanese politicians intent on strangling the nation’s creative industries out of sheer intolerance and moral hysteria.

    Japan SHOULD be more like the US.

    Declare Agnes and everyone in EN enemy combatants and enemies of a terrorist organization, take them to black site facilities, and enhance interrogate them for WMD information that they don't have but who cares....they'll confess...they always confess.

    Seriously rather than focusing on Japan's rape games the U.S. should just be focusing on "real life" child pornography happening in the U.S., we've already have our problems full with our debt and it's only gonna get worser if the U.S. don't pay attention to it.

    Japan doesn't just kill whales for profit but in protected waters aswell. But the whaling is a little of a seperate issue than the mangas of babies being raped, or guro hentai, or most hentai where the little schoolgirls are violently raped and then by the last page are all bubbly with their raper and adoring him. Maybe Japan does deeserve to sink.

    Everyone thinks Japan is a country of freaks and weirdos anyways. Take away the rape games and then people will just think that they're gullible freaks and weirdos easily pushed around.

    "this is a major international issue"

    No, WAR is a major international issue. The starvation of millions is a major internation issue.

    That people have rough fantasies is NOT an international issue.

    This is a simple choice:
    1) Continue releasing rape games to feed the needs of people with rape urges.
    2) Ban rape games and see their female population fall victim to people with rape urges that no longer have games to turn to.

    I love how the weaboo who writes these articles thinks he can say: "No nation has protested to Japan about its 'hentai' industry" and right below it is a link to an article that says "UN Demands Hentai Ban."

    Epic weaboo fail.

    Glad to see Japan's starting to deal with its whole, "everybody thinks we're candy-land for sexual deviants" problem. And to everybody on this site who says "Yeah, well Japan is teh bestest place on earth and I wanna goso I can marry Nene. Kawaii!" The average Japanese person would hate your pasty white wapaneese ass, like most people in your own damn country probably already do.

    I think the only failure here is your understanding of geopolitics - last time I checked, CEDAW was not considered a nation and nor is the UN. On the other hand, a variety of heads of state have said disparaging things about Japan's whaling industry, not just the green puppet groups within the UN - ah, but this was a troll and hence not supposed to be replied to!

    Except it's not the nations of the UN but a feminazi comittee that works for it. In other words, learn to read before making stupid assumptions. That's like saying the US protested it when it's just Equality Now and probably a few groups of religious nutjobs.

    I play cooking mama, Am I a chef?
    I play gta and kills stuff, Am I a murderer?
    I play eroge, Am I a rapist?
    I play bomberman, Am I a terrorist?

    What makes them think eroge is the cause in the first place anyway, any proof? I don't know, something like surveying imprisoned rapists and ask them whether eroge was what motivates them?

    Why these people are retarded in regards to fiction has already been beaten to death.

    I just want to point out how misguided and sick they are. Sex by definition is a consensual act between two or more people of any gender. Sex can not be a crime, as it is always of free will.

    There is no sex crime. No sexual abuse. No sexual assault. There is fondling, molestation, and rape. These are not consensual. They are crimes of malice and violence.

    As a girl, I can see why they actually came up with something like this but..


    Things just wouldn't be the same if they keep on removing and banning stuff. Those creepy, bizzare stuff are what made Japan well, Japan. And seriously, what is the government thinking. It's like they're trying to screw over one of their last economic powerhouse.

    Let's be dead straight honest here, the fact and the truth is, the hell why should other country be bothered with it? it's Japan's own issue. For sure the world is not blind for what Japan is right now, if it's a sex country then so be it. In this modern age, no one would really care about it, either some will take advantage of it or just go blind as long as your diplomatic standing with the country profits you, and we all know that Jap is one of the leading country when it comes to technologies. It's a good bribe actually, one country wouldn't interfere with your shit as long as business is good.

    Trash and hype from the "Modern Women who seek to destroy Men"...

    Even way back when "Women's Suffrage" (The right to vote) was a big issue and various "Liberal" voices were really going out on a limb to argue for better treatment for women, more rights, etc. a "Dark Side" of this movement was noticed; A pure, insidious hatred of all men and the seeking of their destruction, be the man a nice caring "Prince Charming" or a drunkard wife-beater. In short, some of the voices, and the one's that tended to have the most influence/power were ones that would literally kill all men if they could.

    H.G. Wells called them "Hyenas in Petticoats".

    We are seeing the results of their "Success" now. Most notably in all the divorce and disrupted relationships. Women are "Liberated" in much of the so-called "Developed" world but at the same time "Protected". But, they are eternally "Unfulfilled" by this new "Freedom/Power" and the Hyenas get them to take it out on men.

    It's part of the controller's agenda.

    The first step was to break up the "Clan/Extended family". A "Satanic Mill" industry has little power over a group of people that share good and bad times together. Striking workers can take years off while they carve crafts to sell or do subsidence agriculture if they belong to a larger household that's self-sufficient.

    The replacement to that was the "Nuclear Family" that was strong, but dependent on the livelihood of the single adult male. The only problem they had was it enshrined the "Working middle class" and the elites were not content to live like kings, they wanted to be gods.

    So they pushed the "Liberation" thing on women to break apart the family as they increased prices and lowered wages for both parties.

    "Divide and Conquer". Set class against class, men against women, race against race, so they fight each other while they can be robbed and enslaved.

    The issue here is just a "Surface" of that. But it's the vilest women striking out in any way against the men they hate and seek to destroy and will continue to try to destroy him no matter how nice he is. In this case, they don't care about the "Facts" they hate that some men literally would rather have pornography and masturbation than even talk to them.

    One can only hope that these sick games and the pervert culture in general can help lower the number of real-life victims.

    Does it make these games, etc any less deplorable? No.

    Does the whole pervert culture on the internet hurt Japan's standing? To an extent, sure - it's hard to take Japan as anything but a joke country after seeing a website like this. Then again I guess the pedo's who come here are mostly from the English-speaking world, so yeah.

    you know if there was a rape game where you raped men they wouldn't give a flying fuck about it.

    you can say all you want that it is about sexual violence, but no.. it's because there are women in it.
