Hello everyone! Tuturu~
I'm John. I guess I'll preface this by saying that I have moved from @easthighNerd .
Some of my interests are photography , gaming , anime/manga , and computers (coding, servers, FLOSS, etc.)
I also am a HUGE fan of music . Some of my favorite bands include MAN WITH A MISSION, AC/DC, ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Pink Floyd, and UVERworld.
My tastes for gaming include FPS, MMORPG, JRPG, and racing. Some of my favorites that I play right now are Destiny 2 (PS4), Persona 5, Pokemon Sword, the Atelier franchise, and the Neptunia franchise.
I look forward to getting to know the people in my new home, and to meet and befriend many a new people!
ethics of lolicon, long
The real thing that annoys me is the argument "kids are unable to consent and since lolicon is artwork of kids that means that it's harmful".
It should be apparent that the whole point of statutory rape laws is a proxy for mental ability to consent - there are obviously people >18 who do not have the mental ability to consent and people <18 who do - but it's hard to judge that so having a strict definition can be easier to enforce.
Two thirteen year olds can willingly have sex, provided neither of them are under coercion. To argue otherwise is ageist and wrong. Of course, it would be difficult to prove that a recording of this event was not under coercion, and that the people in it honestly consented - and that is why it's illegal.
Given that lolicon is, by definition, fictional, it can be argued that all of the underage characters in lolicon are those that have the mental faculties that are necessary to consent, and therefore it is not porn of those who cannot consent.
So yes, this is absolutely about art and not about children being exploited. There is no lack of consent.
also I don't even particularly like lewd loli artwork, there's a big difference between liking something and thinking it's harmful to the point of banning it
