Save Lolicon, They are not Pedhopile!!

Dalam bahasa aslinya Lolicon memiliki makna seseorang yang mempunyai obsesi pada anak-anak dibawah umur, menjelang atau sebelum masa pubertas yang disebut Lolita (kerap kali hanya disebut loli saja). Obsesi seperti yang dinyatakan pada tulisan sebelumnya dapat bermakna obsesi yang tidak berhubungan dengan sexualitas.

Istilah "Lolicon" sering digunakan oleh otaku dalam ruang lingkup Anime, Manga dan Game. Lolicon dipercaya oleh beberapa orang sebagai salah satu klasifikasi dari otaku karena kebanyakan otaku menyukai karakter berwajah seperti anak-anak.

Karena ruang lingkup penggunaan istilah ini di luar bahasa aslinya hanya dipergunakan pada komunitas Otaku maka istilah Lolicon mengalami perubahan makna menjadi lebih sempit menjadi obsesi kepada objek visual yang imut-imut, bersifat moe dan amat manis. Dimana Lolicon sendiri diakui secara umum berbeda dengan pengertian pedofilia.


The works under discussion (kamsudnya: Virtual Child Pornography / VCP) are primarily of the lolicon and shōjo genres, the former referring to the ‘Lolita complex’ (sexual attraction to underage girls) and the latter literally meaning ‘little girl,’ works targeted at a 10-18 year old female demographic. In the manga format, the works are usually short stand-alone chapters with minimal plot – the inevitable and direct advance toward sexual activity mirrors that of traditional adult pornographic materials. Coercion, rape, incest (usually between siblings), bondage, pedophilia, and ‘rape myths’ (where the victim ultimately enjoys the experience) are common elements, with frequent inclusion of fetishism, hermaphroditism, coprophilia, urophilia, and, in specialized works, zoophilia. In regard to the depiction of minors, the situation can be ambiguous or unequivocal: child characters range from middle and senior high-school age (plausibly, 15-18 years) down to 5 years or lower (it is not unusual for a specific age to be identified, particularly in lolicon).
