Quick Update on the U.N.

Following the U.N.’s proposal to outlaw lolicon and shotacon (see posts here and here), the OHCHR have posted letters from certain respondents to their website.

Many States replied with criticisms on the proposed ban, including Japan, Austria, and perhaps most surprisingly, the USA.

More information can be found at the OHCHR’s website or at oneangrygamer.net, which provides a well-written summary of the updates.

Thanks to Apertado for making me aware of the situation.

It wasn’t pretty and groomed; it resembled more of a junkyard than what we would recognize as a “playground” today. But as you heard the kids laugh and play as they swung across a pond on a rope, you knew that they were excited to be there.

Why is Pedophilia Bad? A Criticism of Moen’s Ethics of Pedophilia

Audio Transcription

Ole Martin Moen began his 2015 essay with the following statement – “Pedophilia is bad”. The reason it is bad, he wrote, is because of the amount of harm it can cause. However, practices that do not harm children are morally “all right”. In this article, I will be responding to his argument that adult-child sex is immoral.
