Sexytimes Sunday *32

  

CNN vs. Shota

Earlier this week Japan banned the possession of sexually explicit photos and videos involving any person under the age of 18. It’s worth noting that this ban only applies to real people, not drawn characters in anime, manga and video games. And this is something US news station CNN has a huge problem with apparently considering their consistent lobbying against these fictional works in Japan. They asked their audience on Twitter:

Now here are some of the answers people on Twitter had for CNN:





This subject has been a hot topic in Japan for a couple of years now and many users of forums and blogs like Hachima agree with the sentiments expressed in the tweets above.  A commenter on 2ch, a large and famous Japanese forum, made the point that these manga are neither exclusively aimed at nor mostly done by men: "There are women who draw these manga, read them, and play these games."

"These. Are. Just. Drawings," said another user in a comment. "Why don’t you guys say this after you lower your crime rate first," asked a snarky commentator looking at the Americans who have a much higher rate of crimes and rape than the Japanese. "Yanks picking fictional Lolita regulation over gun regulation." added another.

For many people involved in this discussion the argument is not necessarily about defending sexualized depiction of kids in manga and anime, but freedom of speech and art. When it comes to that freedom whether it’s sexualized comics or gory video games, where, do you draw the line?

Trap Thursday *93

“It would seem that dressing your little brother up as a girl is one of the most enjoyed pastimes of elder siblings all around the world. In Japan, too, many elder sisters and brothers are putting their younger male siblings through extreme makeovers to make them pretty little ladies!

It’s kind of surprising to learn that many younger brothers, some already in their teens, seem quite willing to let their big sisters dress them up in skirts and dresses, but what’s even more surprising is that many of these “victims” actually look rather cute as girls!” Read on…
