IT’S 2014 AND JAPAN JUST BANNED CHILD PORN

29 Jun

NY Times – Yielding to years of pressure to fall in line with the rest of the developed world, Japan’s Parliament outlawed the possession of child pornography on Wednesday. But the new law left untouched the nation’s popular and sometimes sexually explicit manga comics as well as other portrayals of young girls as objects of sexual desire.

I’d like to say I’m surprised by this but I’m just kinda not.  Japan is so fuckin’ strange.  I think I’m a pretty accepting guy when it comes to other cultures but when your culture thinks it’s okay to film kids doing sex stuff, I’m not on board.  Not surprisingly either, the vote to ban it was not unanimous.  Out of 239 votes, 16 were opposed to the ban.  Basically these 16 Japanese legislators were like “Fuck that! No more kiddie porn? Over our dead bodies!”  Absurd.  Even more absurd is they’re giving everybody who currently has child porn an entire year to get rid of it.  What could possibly be the logic behind that decision?  You click a button, boom deleted.  If it’s a hard copy, boom, toss it in the trash, gonzo.  From now until next June in Japan is gonna be one last hoorah for all the freaks, their swan song.  Heard of The Last Samurai?  Introducing The Last Pedophile.  Starring Tom Cruise, coming to a theater near you in 2016.
