As of being my first real blog, I'm putting child porn as a subject to my highly evolved intelligence.

Child porn is forbidden in almost all countries, defining: "Pornographic material involving underage human individuals." Obviously underage means anything below 18 years. The exact reason why most countries evaluate this law is due to protecting those underage individuals to choices they may or may not regret, just in case. Obviously this is the case with real children say, 0-14 years. However, as of the new millenium anyone older than that gains a higher and higher amount of consciousness regarding the subject, in most cases enough to allow themselves to participate in porn. Does this make them capable of making their own decisions? Obviously this is a known issue all over the world, and it's not just about porn.

This topic however, is more pointed towards the strict policy of the Japanese government focused on limiting the amount of hentai (anime porn) involving underage children. Is this really what should happen? Obviously the time and money spent in this project should go to limiting 'casual' child porn. But the most important part is: Anime is not real, the anime girls don't fully surrender themselves to sexual lust because some strange twist in life corrupted their mind. No the makers of the movie made that decision, and thus it is an expression of their thoughts.

To be honest, I don't know a single man who has never fantasied (word exists? Screw it :P) about underage sex. It doesn't harm anyone and brings pleasure to the individual who thinks about it (at least I hope so, wouldn't make sense if it didn't). You'd almost say we are not allowed to think such things. We are allowed to think everything! Just not about abusing teenagers and some other stuff (I will blog about the 'other stuff' later this week).

No one harms no one, thoughts are non-existent.

If we are not subject to totalitarianism, what are we exactly?

I understand what you are saying about how it is not 'real'. But after participating in multiple psychology classes and knowing a little about it, I can say with confidence that just because it isn't real, doesn't mean people might not obsess about it or get effected in some way.

I mean... where do pedophiles and sick people like that come from? I mean they do not get the sudden idea of wanting to take advantage of a young person.. it builds up on them.

I think that any type of child pornography, whether it is real or drawing, will build up on the urge to commit any act of the sort.

So, in my opinion.. whether it is real or not, I think limiting it is a good idea.

PS ( You can use the argument that people who watch that material subdue there urges with it. In response to that, if they have realized that they all ready have to calm their urges, it is easy to say they all ready need help )

I am aware of the possible dangers of this kind of animes, but doesn't this mean it is practically immoral to express any feeling towards this kind of things at all?
Comment by Anathema on May 16, 2008 at 7:01pm
It depends what you mean by 'feeling'. If you mean feeling as sexual arousal .... then yeah, I think that is 'a little' immoral or at least unhealthy as well..

But if you mean some type of emotion towards it, other than sexual, then no, it is not immoral.

For example, since we are talking about anime. Lets say it is apart of the story.. the tragic life of a young girl for example, then yes, having a scene would make sense, but the fact that there are pure pornographic anime just on child pornography is and should be limited/ not allowed.

I mean, scenes of that nature are used, in my experience, to arise hate and sorrow for the villain and the victim respectively.

For example, in Saw IV, there is the scene with the serial rapist.. You can't help but feel hate for that person, but I think that is a different level.

You're allowed to have feelings towards anything you want, you're allowed to think anything you want. The difference comes into play when certain mentally defunct people see these things and get some stupid idea in their head that they'd like to see what it's like in real life.
Art in all of its forms is a beautiful thing, and can have major lasting impacts on the people that come into contact with it.

I also agree with Anathema's post. If you know you've got an urge to do something like that and use the material to subdue them, then you've already acknowledged that there is an innate 'need' for your body to go through the acts, and you've got something that should be helped before you end up going out and doing something stupid with a real minor.

You say that as though it's self-evident. I think it's not self-evident, please explain yourself.

It is by far not self-evident, but facts show that this process is, in fact, happening. There is not so much to tell about this subject really :S

Pedophiles lust for underage children is similar to homosexuality in that the person can't help how they feel. Now pedophilia in real life is of course wrong and immoral, whereas homosexuality, although frowned upon by some people, doesn't hurt anyone. It doesn't seem that underaged hentai actually hurts anyone or pushes people into becoming a pedophile so it shouldn't be illegal.
Comment by Anathema on May 16, 2008 at 11:03pm
Well, you can't say that it doesn't push people unless you ask someone. I think doing a test would be the only way to prove or disprove your statement.

But I don't think your two links are as similar as you tried to make them out to be. I mean.. Pedophilia is taking advantage of an underage child. I mean, it is just wrong on all levels, and yes the people who are, can not really do anything about it other than not acting on their urges.

But again, only one way of finding out is with a controlled experiment I guess.
