What is lolicon? A theme of anime, manga, and eroge in which underage/child-like female anime characters are sexually depicted.
As many of my long time readers and most of my on and offline friends know, I am a fan of lolicon and shotacon. I have never ONCE denied that or tried to hide it. I’ve been interested in it since 2006 or 2007. In the years that I’ve been interested in it, I’ve heard a very common and ignorant statement. That statement? That ALL lolicon fans are pedophiles and lolicon is CHILD PORN. One of those are false and the other one varies by country. First I shall address the “pedophile” part. Pedophilia is a psychiatric diagnosis. A pedophile is an adult that has a PRIMARY attraction to children under the age of 13. Now, unless you are qualified to make medical diagnosis it is safe to say you don’t know shit. AND if you are dumb enough to say anime characters are children, then you REALLY don’t know shit. You see, a child is defined as a HUMAN below the age of majority. Are anime characters humans? Are they a “person”? No. It would be nice if they were, but they aren’t. By that alone, any chance of you being able to accurately label all lolicon fans pedophiles just died.
