    Default Sexually explicit Japan manga evades new laws on child pornography

    I.....this...I don't even....

    They stare wide-eyed from the pages of magazines, childlike in stature but engaged in extremely explicit sexual activities.
    They may be drawings, but critics say the images found on the pages of some of Japan's erotic manga are so disturbing they should be banned.
    "I believe that this kind of terrible material is not protected under freedom of expression," says Masatada Tsuchiya, a member of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
    On Wednesday, Japanese lawmakers passed a law that will see people caught with child porn jailed for a year or fined up to $10,000.
    However, it doesn't include possession of anime or manga depicting child abuse, no matter how sexually explicit.

    The bigger problem, she said, is that manga permeates Japanese culture. It can be seen everywhere, from street signs to government pamphlets.
    Often, the characters depicted are young, vulnerable girls who meet consumers' desires for something "kawaii" or "cute."
    "'Cuteness is a problem," she said. "Because cuteness is something that makes you feel you have to protect the person, and there's a very fine line between 'I can protect the person' and 'I can control the person.'"
    She said the prevalent depiction of young girls, especially in "Lolita complex" material, risks giving "the wrong impression of women."
    "If you're looking at it all the time, how are you actually seeing people? Is it just a fantasy, or maybe some people with a bit of a wrong mind think that is actually there, and that is the way to treat women. So there is a risk," she said.

    Japan's economy is hurting bad enough already. Last thing they need is to lose millions of dollars in tax revenue from Moe Hentai.
