I am a female, And I read Shota and Loli Doujins all the time, I rather enjoy them but this doesnt mean iam going to go out and act on anything I read, This is the same arguement as "Oh you play Grand theft auto, your gunna shoot someone" My point in all this is a simple one, Censorship is wrong. Its the goverment or in this case, The US goverment putting pressure on Japan to censor one of the more popular Hentai markets out there. Thinking about things a bit, Our goverment telling another what they can and cant do makes me think back to the stories my Grandparents told me about Vietnam or even the Cold war where one government tries to force another to do something.
The point is, Shota and Lolicon hentai do not influence people to go out and act on things, I have a fairly large collection of this material stored on dvds just like every other kind of hentai, I play violent games but this doesnt mean iam a violent person. If anything Anime, games, Hentai have made me a better person, Normal movies dont effect me no matter how sad yet GRave of the Fireflies made me cry, Dynasty warriors didnt make me go out with a katana and murder people by the hundreads, It got me interested in Chinese history and lore.
Thirty years ago it was Comics currupting the youth of america, Twenty years ago it was Rock n Roll music, Ten years ago it was Tv and video games. Now we have moved past this and simply say "Oh its the influence of Japan" are you kidding me?
My rant is done for now. ^.^ Please contenue.
