    Japan tells the self-righteous and delusional to shove it! Seriously, with all of the problems going on in the world, why would the fracking U.N. try to put the boot down on cartoon porn?!

    They’re too busy being worried about the welfare of fictional females to think about all of the violence ISIS is committing towards real women! It’s a damn joke! Well, they did give time for “certain women” to air their “dire grievances” against “Internet harassment”.

    The U.N. reminds me of some Feminist tripe that I read in college about porn leading to the victimization of real women. Funny, the study they cited involved sexual offenders (i.e. men that were sick puppies to begin with).

    Do I think the media as an effect on people? Absolutely.
    To an extreme extent (as to commit violence, rape)? No. Studies show that there is no direct correlation between real life violence and fictional violence (basically the whole debate around video games/music/movies since Columbine and the Satanic Panic).

    Millions of people consume porn/sexual media, some on a daily basis. I don’t think they suddenly become sexual predators just because they saw Sasha Grey licking a toilet seat.

    Besides, if you think about it, fiction is often a mirror of reality/human nature (often exaggerated).

    If the world is sexual and violent, what do you think people are going to create in fictional worlds?

    Just look at Game of Thrones and Dexter.

    I guess some people don’t like what is reflected back at them.

    Not really related but just shows how this tired topic repeats itself through history.

    Demonology, sadism, and rape! Boy, that Tom Hanks movie was right! Dungeons and Dragons is the world’s most dangerous game!

    Slayer and King Diamond are corrupting America’s youth!

    *Note: the “occultist” they interviewed was on death row for killing his parents and a store clerk. Totally sane!

    Wow, that was a really awesome video. I think I might sub to that channel. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Moral panic is a really weird phenomena. We are starting to have people who have lived though moral panics, but then go on to participate in the next one & the parallels between the one they were against & the one they’re now for are becomes so clear that it is driving anti-moral panic proponents insane. Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it, but it’s becoming apparent that people are failing to learn even from their own personal history. I find myself especially dismayed by this, seeing as a similar folly may befall me, if it hasn’t already. Are we all doomed to first be the ignorant revolutionary only to mature into the jaded ideologue? I would so much like to believe that I will be different, but isn’t that exactly how it happens? Pride cometh before the fall.

    All I can do right now is try to better myself & try to keep my wits about me. The struggle to not become a self-aggrandizing hypocrite is endless. Sometimes I think that all it takes to completely invert morality, is just a single shade of grey… but I think that’s enough philosophical thinking for one day.
