Now that we got those checkpoints and round-ups out of the way, let's get down to more specific business. I particularly wanted to post this story right after today's ero-news round-up
, just to show how ridiculous this whole idea of banning eroge, ero-animes and adult magazines with underaged girls really is. But first, the facts
"The Japanese Diet is set to hear a petition for legislation which would effectively ban the vast majority of eroge and adult anime (...), as the petitioning party is particularly het up about portrayals of minority age females."
Sooo... underaged boys are ok, but not lolis? Blasphemy! Not that they have much of a chance with this outrageous petition of theirs (more outrageous than the eroge themselves, ironically). But the story doesn't end here, because Japan's Democratic Party has gone one step further. They have proposed
a dystopian regime to ban all websites containing "strikingly sexually stimulating information", information promoting extreme cruelty, suicide and crime. Christ, why don't they just ban the whole internets!
Of course, this whole charade is mostly just a political propaganda, and as such it was bound to give rise to fervent protests
. Which it did, as hordes of angry lolicons are now going Shion-mode in their online rantings. But from all the arguments one could come up with, against such anti-constitutional measures, nothing beats the simple statistics put together by Sankaku Complex
. In short, here's the deal:
- 300 cases of child abuse a year in Japan - population: 127 million
- 7,500 similar cases in England - population: 50 million
- 50,000 similar cases in the United States - population: 300 million
I rest my case. We've said it before, and we'll say it again: a flat chest
is fine, too!
