    Save which children? Fictional children do not need any protection since you know, they are not real.
    This is exactly the same as arguing that the bots in Battlefield 4 need to be protected from harm, and that FPS games should be illegal. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
    Fictional characters should not be treated like real life people. It's absolutely absurd.

    Agreed completely.
    It should be mentioned that there are tribes around the world (can't remember where, and can't remember where I read about this) where twins are considered to be married by birth, because these tribes assume that the twins had sex in utero. While this may seem reprehensible to us, who really has a right to force them to live another way?
    I for one find homosexuality to be reprehensible, but not for the usual "it's wrong, jesus says so" reasons. I have my right to have that opinion, but that doesn't give me a right to go out and work to ban homosexuality.
    ^this. Killing/raping is killing/raping, regardless of the victim.
    Edit: With the exception of EA executives. I think we need to issue a bounty for them, world leaders as well

    DigitalHermit reacted to TopWargamer in Japan is planning to create a "space force"   
    Source: http://kotaku.com/japan-wants-to-create-a-space-force-1615522797?utm_campaign=Socialflow_Kotaku_Facebook&utm_source=Kotaku_Facebook&utm_medium=Socialflow
    Now that's just plain cool. You read it as "protecting Earth from debris." I read it as "Gundams protecting Earth from debris." Okay, I'm over exaggerating quite a bit, but it's still neat though. Since Japan will be working closely with the US, I'm assuming that the US will be, at the very least, helping them fund this new "space force." Or they could be supplying them fully built...whatever. Fully built...GUNDAMS.
    I know, no Gundams, but I can dream, right? Either way, it's cool. +1 Japan +1 USA... +1 Gundams
    I hope this leads to Gundams, because I really want Gundams.

    Well technically he can say that because its his opinion. Whether we agree with his opinion or not is up to us.

    Pardon me if I'm incorrect but I have yet to see a anime enthusiast go all out on you for disliking your views.

    Yes, and shooting people in video games encourages people to shoot other people IRL.
    People who make shooter video games don't make them with the intent to promote the killing of other human beings. They make shooters because they're enjoyable to play and people enjoy playing them. It's fan service really.
    If people stop playing shooter games, then developers will stop making shooter games. You can apply that same principle here with these explicit anime/manga.
    Listen, I never said that I approved of it, but it's perfectly legal for them to sell since it doesn't involve real people. You also have to remember that some country's laws are just different than your own country's laws. Am I saying that most Japanese people read/watch that kind of stuff? Oh nononono, definitely not. I'm sure it's quite the opposite, but the facts still stand that it doesn't involve real people and is harming nobody.
    You make it sound like a kid stumbled across his father's Playboy magazine and Playboy should be to blame for it. It's not Playboy's fault that the kid saw it.
    Likewise, people under 18 shouldn't be looking at that kind of stuff (back to the topic at hand here). It's adult content, made by adults, for adults. Nobody is getting harmed, the makers are making money, and adults get to have their fun time.
    I'm sure that sounds gross to you, and it does to me as well, but that's just how it is. It's perfectly legal content made for adults. Deal with it.

    Okay okay, I've spent a little bit of time with the article. I only bothered to watch the first minute and a half of the video.
    Let's get this out of the way right now.
    You (yes, you OP) and the guy in the video are sensationalizing the article.
    I don't recall anywhere in the article it mentioning that general anime/manga is child porn. The article from CNN is saying why explicit anime/manga featuring "child porn" should be banned.
    With actual child pornography, there are real people being abused there. It's sick, gross, and 100% illegal. With anime/manga, there are no real people being hurt, so *technically* it is perfectly legal, but man is it messed up. I personally don't agree with anime/manga makers making "child porn" (I know it technically isn't, but I'm not sure what else to call it right now), but since no real people are being abused/shown in the anime/manga, then it's legally acceptable to be sold.
    So what do I say about this? I say it's gross, but it's perfectly legal to sell. It's just another piece of adult content except it features animated characters doing explicit things. It would probably be a better move to put all of these adult anime/manga in their own anime/manga shop and away from the SFW stuff. Not saying that there aren't already, but there should be a clean cut between the SFW side of the store and the NSFW side of the store.
    Even if you have a banner that says "18+ only", do you really think people under 18 will follow that rule? No. If adult anime/manga are contained in their own shop, then it would be easier to filter who all comes into the store. That's how I see it anyways.
    TL;DR version
    -OP/video is sensationalizing the article
    -Animated/drawn explicit images of children is gross (IMO), but perfectly legal, since nobody IRL is being abused/shown/hurt
    As a side note, if anybody could explain the last part of the article, that would be great, because it literally doesn't make any sense to me.

    So I just finished Hataraku Maou-sama with a friend and well it was decent but I think it tried to do too many things. Its a comedy, slice of life, harem. None of these things were done particularly well and i can think of a few recent anime that were close but did each respective genre better.

    Real games (however you might feel about their optimization) that real people play are a much more relevant measurement of graphics card performance than techincally excellent games that aren't fun or synthetic benchmarks.
    Totally disagree...
    This is why a variety of games is used for testing graphics cards.

    The rage is rightfully justified, though. This is no different than drawing a stick man and someone claiming it's childporn because I didn't draw breasts and clothes on it. 2D =/= reality. People need to get that through their thick skulls. I don't have a massive collection of anime stuff, but you don't have to, to realize how absurd this is. There is also the culture difference as well. I mean, to a lesser degree, just look at the character of Kirby. In box art from japan, Kirby is all smiles while the American cover art tends to be altered to be all "edgy" with angry eye brows. Japanese culture likes cute.
    There is this one anime where the main character is 17 and she looks 10. Should the government /really/ waste their man power and tax payer money to go after that instead of real victims? No sane person in the world would say fake images should have a higher priority over real victims. That's why these fundamentalists are idiots. They are wanting fake images to get that same priority. I wonder how someone could live with themselves knowing a child is being raped right now, but they'd rather go after the guy with loli on his computer.

    I'm hoping to compile a list of networking programs from various users that will help beginners or novices get an idea on just what they can do with a networking software. So recommendations would be appreciated.
