I've stopped being bothered by all things animated a long time ago, it's one of the symptoms of fucking around on 8chan and 4chan while searching for fats on Pixiv. Still can't really handle genitalia no matter the age though, which is weird.

As long as you don't do anything IRL then it's fine, really.

I'm attracted to lolis because of the more petite body shape, not the age.

that there is a tough one... I mean lolis are cute, but to find them sexual is a rough thing... though I guess as long as you can separate the real ones from fictional ones, you should be safe... wait what was I talking about?

I'm always extremely uncomfortable with Loli's. I don't know what Shota means but I presume its something similar. Underaged pornography/lewd material just hits a lot of bad vibes with me and whilst I can see the points of "it could serve as a way for paedophiles to not go commit their urges on actual children" I'd rather not even begin to encourage the sexual attraction to begin with.

Again that's just my opinion but fetishized children never sits right with me.

If they are drawn in an innocent fashion/non sexually I have zero issues. The moment any sort of fetish is applied to a child I am feeling very mortified. I've seen the effects of child abuse in that strain and I really can't stomach even the thought of children getting into situations like that considering how awful and detrimental it can be to them. Even fictional characters... and im a man whose seen some rather bad people before.

The most I could accept is maybe like two kids kissing each other in a cutesy fashion, and more for an "Aww" factor rather than something sexually stimulating. Otherwise, I cannot tolerate any sort of sexualized behavior from that. If I see art drawn from people I am subscribed to in that fashion I typically ignore it entirely, and if they tend to draw only that after a while I sometimes might unsubscribe.

It's sort of like vore. Vore less so because of complete morality problems and more so because I just find it repulsive; but to each their own on that front.

I think honestly, it's art and the real child molesters don't sit around on the internet looking at loli/shotas, they go out and actually hurt children. Though, loli/shota art is illegal in Canada, my personal opinion is that there should be no restrictions on art. There's no law against bestiality art nor are there laws against necrophilia art, but both real acts are also very illegal. I think if you take away artistic freedom, it becomes a problem. As long as no real children are harmed or featured in the drawn art, it shouldn't be a problem.

While I'm open to a lot of things, this is a big nope for me. Loli/shota implies sexual attraction/sexuality from grown ups to children in most cases. I've little care about the medium by which it's expressed, the concept itself is something I see as being as disturbing as rape, if not more, clothed characters or not.

If what people are interested in is the petite body type, and not the loli/shota itself, there are plenty of ways to depict it without involving children.

As long as it's just a drawing and no one real gets hurt by it, I see little reason to care one way or the other.

Well, the poll's a little vague. By tastefully would you mean non-sexually? As there's nothing wrong with finding a kid cute in a non-sexual way, that's just normal. So then it would just be a drawing of a kid. And the context of fetish art makes that troubling, because one could draw a technically innocent drawing but with the purpose of appealing to pedos (in fact this is a major cultural problem in japan, the whole 'moe' thing is about presenting girls as having childlike/'innocent' traits for a reason!)

and then it's especially weird for me because I'm not really into any of this fetish stuff for sexual reasons. i like it, but i don't really experience sexual attraction. so i don't know where i'd put myself and others like me in this situation. if we enjoy a drawing non-sexually that others are enjoying sexually, are we any more "better"?

i've learned over recent years that everything should be judged on a case to case basis. its more the intentions and willingness to learn that matters, less so than the actions. and i have some weird thoughts towards 18 being a cutoff point, and how that fits in with other countries' perceptions of it - if we wanted to be thorough, 25 would be legal age, as thats when we know that any given person has stopped maturing. but it's not. it's a rather complicated subject.

...well, that's a bit off topic now, but it is something i contemplate.

on that note there are quite a few "Yikes!" comments on here.

I don't like it but I do like adult females that dress in cute clothes. However I don't mind people who are into it just so long as they don't share too much information like :iconmistystuffer: did. I know not everyone who's into it is necessarily attracted to real children.

I don't particularly like it, but I don't oppose any form of drawn art. The creation and consumption of it does not in any way hurt anyone.
I think the people and countries that ban/try to ban are acting in a very counter productive way. As far as I've read, most studies show that countries where sexuality is most repressed have greater issues with sexual abuse.

As long as no little kid is being hurt or sexually objectified, it's all good. Pedophilia isn't something that a person can help, so as long as they keep their sexual attractions in the realm of drawings and fiction, they aren't bad people.

Eh... I really don't know, honestly. I certainly don't like them naked or in something risque(Like say, the shit in Boku No Pico). Maybe a little skin would be OK. Maybe. alorok did say it well, it also depends on where you live.I won't go around bitching at people to not like it, of course.

But like I said, I'm very unsure.

I'm fine with most things- but I find it's safer to just go with what the law in your area says. In most places, even "simulated erotica featuring characters appearing to be minors" can land a full criminal record and jail time. That's not true everywhere, but it's an important thing to know where it applies, as it can vary from province to province, state to state.

I feel that drawings allow escape without hurting anyone, but my personal beliefs don't matter if not obeying the law could get me into serious trouble. So, fine with it but be careful.
