I only read the first few pages so maybe this was already mentioned but while you guys are arguing over whether or not animated/drawn depictions of nude children should be illegal, did you know that ACTUAL photographs and videos of child nudity is classified as art and is completely legal? At least in the United States...

It would be silly to ban the fake stuff and keep the real, wouldn't it?

But to address the topic specifically, this brings us the question of what should be classified as art and what as pornography. Without getting too graphic, does porn equal physical sexual contact, the human body without clothing, or something as petty as a kiss? This subject is complicated, delicate and open to a wide range of interpretations.

Personally, I think the idea of banning drawings, no matter what they depict, is ridiculous.

After reading some of the comments in this thread I'm glad that final legislative decisions are left up to Constitutional lawyers.

Listen to this scenario.

If you are watching an animated video of yourself driving a Ferrari and you watch this said video 3x a week.

Then you look across the street at the neighbor that has the bright yellow Ferrari, you will then want to go and drive that Ferrari.

Some people would even consider stealing this mans Ferrari and going for a joy ride.

See my point?

As a person who knows a person who was sexually assaulted when she was around 5, it's sickening to think that these pedophiles get joy and pleasure out of anything having to do with children and sexual acts.
Sure it's animated child porn, but it doesn't subdue the actual craving that these people have for young children, more like exacerbates it.
Whenever she'd tell me about what happened to her, i just felt a strong rage in me and there's nothing that could ever happen to me that could compare to what she felt.

I say harsher punishment for these people, and if they're released, make them wear a tshirt that says "child molester". ugh!!!

" Who is to say what is normal and what is not..."

Fair enough,


What is wrong and we all should clearly know this I believe is:

INNOCENCE!

Young children are still in a stage of growing up not yet understanding what the world is all about, who they are, what they want let alone their sexuality etc. etc. etc. They are in a state of innocence so if someone of an older age wishes to manipulate them and start a sexual relationship of some kind with them they are being taken advantage of unfairly.




You will get no argument from me on this fact! Children should be left along and I personally would slit the throat of anybody that took advantage of a small child! But the line is not always as black and white as some would pretend it to be! A boy and girl fall in love at the age of 14 and 16 and are pretty much free to do what they want, but when the boy reaches 18 he can't be with his girlfriend for 2 years?

Also its perfectly acceptible for a man at the age of 40 to download and view as many naked 18 year olds as he wants but if they are 17 or 16 he is a sicko?

It is nothing more thana social standard that has been imprinted on the minds of many! 16 year old girls in most cases look much like 18 year old girls, sometimes older!

So yeah the social standard is 18 is legal, but does that really make it right????

Hi ,

Thank you for your article on Animated stuff, sorry I can not bear to speak the disgusting word`s. but my partner pointed out a very valid point which I believe you all should bear in mind ,before even considering giving these Child abusers any sort of forum or space.
Take a Twenty something Lady who may fall pregnant ,with child ,after a second ,or third date. And when notifying the Man involved she is told He want`s no more to do with Her.
So for the forseeable future all she has is a Vibrator(surely the equivelant of a Animated film) I Do not believe for one minute that the Lady will be satisfied for the rest of her life with her Vibrator? Do you. She may be satisfied for a few months , maybe even a few years. But the rest of Her life, No. So when these Animi Peodo`s have finished getting there kicks then what? Then they will go out and put there Animated Sickness into reality! Also the Animated films will run the major risk of enhancing there knowledge of there related behavoir. They may start out as just Fantasy`s but with the enhanced knowledge that these unrestricted Animated films may bring, who knows where these sick fanasy`s may end or worse Actual behavior!


So based on your theory... Anybody who plays a video game that involves kiling people will grow up and murder people??? Some people lack the ability to reason, and act out their fantasies whatever they happen to be, but most would be perfectly happy leaving the killing to their video games!!!

Child porn is wrong, animated child porn although wrong should not be illigal because the drawings cannot be classified as human or even life forms!!! Unless they are drawing actual children, its just that.... a drawing!

I like watching horror flicks, I like killing in video games, I assure you unless somebody attempts to harm any of my children or loved ones, the killing will stay to the virtual realm!!!

Your theory sickens me, not because of this topic at hand but because it is this same illogical bull crap that causes great video games, movies, and tv shows to be banned!!! There is no logical evidence to back up your theory what so ever!

I'm disgusted that some people actually have no problem with letting perverts fantasize over children, even if its just a drawing
!!! That says alot about the world we live in nowadays.

No... it isn't that simple because even though this is something that I feeling very strongly against, in order to take away this right you must crush the very foundation of the bill of rights that make America the great country that it is!!!

Fact: drawings are not people

Fact: drawings don't have rights

Fact: drawings don't have feelings

Fact: drawings are drawings!

Fact: you can't prove that a drawing is under the age of 18, only that based on our opinion the drawing appears to be under the age of 18! You can't even prove that the drawing is that of a human and not an imagionary species created in the mind of the artist!

What happens is if a mother takes pictures of her daughter and publishes it, the State goes after the parents and charge them with child abuse.
First thing a judge is going to do is make them stop whatever they are doing, without any trial or conviction.
So, it is pretty much a dead art, in this country.
I think the last artists have run out of money to hire lawyers.
It was legal in Japan, but they stopped that.
So, you can buy nude video on Amazon, but none of it is produced here.
Did you know, in Europe, they have topless beaches?
They do not have age limits and make children wear tops.

Wow hong long did it take you to drum this theory up!!! We all watch commercials and videos of amazing cars, bikes, houses, etc.... and yet not every person that fantasizes about driving these vehicles or owning these possetions breaks the law in order to obtain these possetions... You just destroyed your own theory!!! Thanks for playing!

I don't think animation can compare to the sick fantasies going through their sick heads. Also if we decide we want our governments to start censoring animation where would it end? Furthermore how can anyone identify animated character as underage? What makes a cartoon a child as opposed to a young looking adult? I think it would be impossible to regulate.

I would however support legislation that would call for a mandatory death penalty for anyone convicted of molesting a child. It has been shown that a child molester can't be rehabilitated.

So what's your stance on all this?

You have to allow it or you'll have to arrest anyone who draws a graphic novel of someone being murdered. Should they get jailed for that?

While I WANT very badly to say it should be banned, it cannot or you suffer the consequence of how that relates to everything else.

...


John Leguizamo in the movie "whispers in the dark" (or I think it was that movie)
had a very interesting line that will stick with me forever on issues like this and it went something like..
---John was asking his psychiatrist----
"what would you do doc if you lived on a planet where sex was illegal? But everyday of every year you yearned for it but if you ever had it you could go to jail or even worse ?
Well that's what it's like for me.. instead of wanting to have sex, I see a pretty woman and i want to hurt her and to make her scream"
--- it was close to that but not exactly as i saw it a VERY long time ago---

Ever since I heard that, it made a profound impact on how I observe and try to understand how one thinks. These people who are pedophiles completely make me want to do things of extreme harm to them in return for the suffering they inflict..
But why do they think it in the first place? is it something they are unable to avoid in their thoughts? I guess so.. which puts my in a strange place on how I judge them.

I think that anyone who purchases or draws such art needs to be on a watched list, but not harassed or singled out unless they are proven to take the fantasy into the lands of reality.

Man I hate saying that because to me, it should be illegal but rationality tells me that's irrational thinking...

@harvib- It may difficult or impossible to guess the age of a person in a drawing, but in the paediphiles mind, its a child.

No and that is ridiculous.
Maybe if I drove a yellow Ferrari in my video game, it would make me feel like I had enough of it to fulfill whatever needs my fantasy requires.
I do not know what you base these things on.
I can not disagree more.
Criminals are not normal.
What you want to do is make normal people criminals, by making useless laws.
I have a saying, Do not try to understand crazy people. If there was some logic to their thinking, they would not be crazy.
You are trying to put your own rationality on someone who is by definition, irrational.

I don't think there should be any question.

I've met some people damaged by these sick individuals that steal a persons childhood and wounds their soul for the sheer pleasure of indulging in a sick fantasy.

I just don't get it.

I don't get the attraction to a child. I like adult women. Grown. Independent is even better. I've never had a fantasy of even having my wife dress as a "school girl" because what would I want with one?

Most Pedo's convince themselves they are in a relationship. How the hell can an adult be in an equal relationship with a someone that isn't even old enough to drive? Even worse...just learned the damn alphabet.

Of course it's not about balance it's about control.

Sorry...no child pornography in animated form or real life to work out a sick mind.

I'd say therapy instead. If you act on it, I say prison.
Lengthy term...and even that doesn't correct the harm that the perpetrator has caused.

I think that this type of art is one thing, but the intention it can be used for is another.

Why play with bouderies that can hurt kids, when it can stimulate sick people to do crime.

I agree but how do you prove that. It is something that unless you can hear peoples thoughts you can't regulate.

I can say easily that I don't like Pedos.
and I agree that they should be helped, there will be some that are beyond help of course.

when you look at whats acceptable and whats not, don't forget to bring up the old news that gets extinguished by the press, one example is The airbase in Okinawa, remember?

where children as young as 12 are being brutally raped, some even by 3 or more U.S servicemen. it didn't happen just once, its been happening eversince We put a base there. and I ask now, why havent we donr anything about it?

theres on going protests by the parents there. the fbi, or should i say, the U.S citizens have done nothing about it, and why, is it because they are yellow?

real children getting raped across the world by UN officials, from Eastern Europe to Asia, to S. America. where is our argument really, if a supposed person who lives out a fantasy in their own homes with 3D or CG erotica?

How about young children who have Fantasies of having sex with older men or women , are they also adding to the fire?

i am not an insensitive person, i've worked with women and children of abuse.

these are some of the questions and examples of such slavery that goes on around the world presently, they have not been stopped , so what makes us think over all that non human substitution will stop.
