About this deal
reminds me of when i had a visitor over from the states and we took a trip to akihabara. he spotted a naughty shop and wanted to take a peek. i told him it wasn't a good idea, but he insisted we go in and take a look... urgh. my skin was crawling for the miniscule amount of time it took him to realise what i'd been talking about. needless to say he had been oblivious to what might be within 0
Unless you can prove damage and detriment to society, you are violating rights without good cause. With regard to both, you have no evidence and no case. In contrast, there are easily things more damaging to children out there. We can only take even bothering to waste you time with this as something other than a genuine concern for the children. Even if it were real, it is sorely misplaced. You seriously need to reflect on why this bothers you so much while you have only guesses about the models feel.And before you go making arguments about people with kids. I don't have children and don't have any intention of having them. But I do have a niece and I have the children of friends who I care about. Collectively we all work hard to see to it that we show them a good example. Their parents work hard to provide good homes and education. And they do all they can to ensure that they have a good and solid start in life. Show you deteriorating society? Look at literacy levels, look at corruption, misinformation, wars, central banks collapsing the economy. How is this not a deteriorating society? Few happy brothers and sisters? How about global society on virge of complete disintegration? You are failing to see the bigger picture, my friend.
But at places such as Oimoya, located right on Akihabara’s main street of Chuo Dori, fans crowd around merchandise displays featuring underage girls. The most obvious counter-argument to your suggestions that parents alone should be left to raise their children any way they see fit comes from cases of child abuse in the home. No, not spankings. I’m talking about abuse of the “beer bottle across the head” variety, sexual abuse, starvation. Parents do not have the right to abuse their children. Dead stop. It is society’s obligation to prevent that abuse, if uncovered, and if unabated, society’s obligation (and right) to remove that child from danger, subsequently giving that child a better opportunity to grow into a healthy, productive member of society than he or she would have had in an abusive home.

L4dymercury-"And there's no way you can compare movie acting to U-15 Junior Gravure modeling. There's no way." grl2grlz wants us to believe there's something special about Japanese sexuality that we mere gaijin, standing on the outside looking in, cannot possibly understand. That's rubbish. Most of my family are Japanese and I cannot find a single one of them who would consider it OK for grown men to ogle and perve at a semi-naked adolescent. If anyone had ever suggested our daughter should be subjected to that kind of treatment I'm sure my husband, who is not a violent man by any means, would have given them a bunch of fives for their trouble. 0
This is not hysteria, militancy, overactive imagination or anything else - this is a calm, rational sense of right and wrong, as a former model, an adult and a parent, as to where the line should be drawn to protect children from sexual exploitation. 0 And I am against coercion. And I do think there should be protections from it. But I am not good with the lazy and unimaginative answer of "ban it". Something you did not tell us in your post is whether you thought any of those that "succummed" would be any different at 30 or 40 if there was any real market for them at that age. Its certainly not always coercion. Some girls are made for this, just like some girls are going to be the town bicycle and like it whether you think its right or not.
There are a lot of smart, strong and capable women here. It would serve Japan better if they set the goal that young girls hope to achieve and reach. 0 kirakira25-"I know we were all over the age of consent (because we have laws prtotecting young girls in the UK) but I saw the psychology being used on these girls and their parents and sometimes by their parents."
