Rolling Eyes

Breasts/nipples aren't sex organs. Such a hysterical overreaction.

It's funny how just a couple of decades ago stuff way worse than that stupid pic was completely socially acceptable over there.

Everybody is too concerned about offending people nowadays. Not surprising considering people get offended over nothing now and are sue-happy

Yeah, who cares about child pornography. Don't stop the publication of more inspiration for otaku masturbation. Notice that I'm being sarcastic.

I agree that nowadays everyone gets easily offended, but in this case I think the government is right in investigating possible child pornography.

I'm not even sure how that would be considered child pornography. The child is doing nothing sexual. There's nothing profain about what the boy is doing. He's merely covering up the portion of her body that would be considered profain otherwise. If the child had been undressed, or depicted doing something sexual, I could understand the accusations, but I see that picture and derive no sexual context or ill-intended meaning.

Japan's Child Pornography laws may differ from US laws (or wherever you're from). I really don't understand what's the fuss though. Personally, I think you have to be pretty delusional to use the term Child Pornography to describe this image.

But that's just me. I don't base my opinions on morals. I try to think things through and rely on logic. I don't see any way that this image could have been harmful for that child so while I don't care for the image myself, there is no reason to censor it.

Oh come on!!! The child is there as a self insert and the picture is there for titilation. If you can't see anything wrong with putting a child in that situation then there's something wrong with you.
