UN Challenging Japan’s Treatment of Women, Suggests Ban of Erotic Japanese Games

senran kagura estival versus 04-06-15-1

The UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), will be examining (SOURCE, our mobile URLs show up the same as regular text – working on a fix) Japan’s record on women’s rights.

The reason this has gotten onto our radar is that one of the possible talking points is the “banning of the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women.”

The wording of the phrase could imply that they’ll be discussing banning eroge games like Rapelay (or other games of that nature), but with no clear guidelines as to what “sexual violence” entails, it feels like the definition can be used to include games that aren’t even eroge.

The discussion will be broadcasted live on the Treaty Body Webcast site.

  • MusouTensei

    Fuck you UN.

  • Stilzkin

    The same UN that has Saudi Arabia as a member?

    wew lads

  • It takes more than that to impress Tataki-san.

  • Jack


  • Narmy

    So instead of focusing on real women being beaten/killed/raped/enslaved, they just have to protect those poor defenseless fictional women from tentacle monsters. Sasuga UN.

  • RincewindtheMad

    A D V O C A T I N G C E N S O R S H I P !

  • Yeah they need to focus on real women who are literally subjugated, raped, tortured, etc., mostly in the Middle East or Africa. Oh wait, they’re more focused on talking points than actual real world problems :S

  • Uncle Ocelot

    >The UN

  • mrwizeass

    And suddenly, I think I realize why Saudi Arabia is the head of this council.

  • Vagineer1

    Damnit UN. You done fucked up.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    Isn’t this the same UN that has Saudi Arabia as the advisor for human rights or something?

    Fucking Hell man

  • patyos

    Seriously …….

  • Takane Shijou

    Oh, I’m sure this will be enlightening.

  • Considering they took the time to even listen to Sarkeesian, you know something’s happening with the UN and places in general.

    Hell, she now moderates Twitter thanks to that one council created.

  • DizzyGear

    No words…

  • totlmstr

    The UN’s waifu is shit.

  • João Carlos Honório Pedro

    It’s a matter of reaching for low hanging fruit, IMO. It’s piss easy to get the ball rolling on Japan to do this (unlikely it’ll happen because that shit gets a fair amount of money flowing) when compared to solving women’s issues in 3rd world countries, which they probably want to gloss over because “those people” don’t earn them any social brownie points.


  • Jack

    The same UN that hosted feminist frequency
    These people hold control over our lives
    the UN was a bad idea

  • Clairity

    And what’s the matter with erotic Japanese games? Oh right, they’re icky because men like them.

  • Leandro Teixeira

    now it has come to this uh… they are trying to kill the last free game
    haven in the world… typical closed minded western mentality… makes
    me sick. I can’t believe my ancestors fought for the freedom of speech just so that 100 years later we start returning to the dark ages again…

  • bateruchan

    i’m… i’m so tired of all this.
    And I know i think i’ve said this before but like the more of this that comes out the more i feel like i’ve been beaten down over and over… is that what they’re aiming for? To just beat us down until we just roll over and give up?

    because i’m almost to that point. just giving up.

  • Amerilard

    but extreme violence is completely ok

  • Leandro Teixeira

    “”fair amount” is a generous way of saying that currently Otaku related goods there (sales of manga, anime, eroge, etc etc), last time I checked, represents 1 fifth of their economy, so this happening is unlikely, although I’m saying this it still leaves me a bit worried about what the future holds

  • _Accelerate_

    Reminder that the UN distributed child pornography amongst themselves, has Saudi Arabia in charge of human rights, and has generally been a fucking shitshow.

    Reminder that they would rather talk about video games than actual, living women being treated as cattle in some countries.

  • Arean

    Relative Privation is a fallacy, but this is one of those times where I think it can be used: Haven’t the goddamn UN got more important things to worry about?

    It’d be one thing if Japan had an absurd rate of sexual crime, but it doesn’t. In fact, it has rape statistics far lower than most Western “Progressive” countries.

    If they need something productive to do, I suggest they start by sanctioning the head of the Human Rights comitee for their blatant disregard for human rights.

  • Daniel Segovia

    Does the UN still a thing?

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    The UN is such a joke.

  • Tyrone Jackson

    I hope we (the U.S.) leave the UN and kick their headquarters the hell out of our country.

    Of course that won’t happen, but I can dream.

  • Eldhin Hellknight

    What the fuck?!

  • Kraken

    lewds or riot!

  • Jim

    Virtual women have RIGHTS, god damn it!

  • Jerry Erikson


  • Captmotorcycle

    Let’s not discuss the Middle East’s treatment of Real Women as cattle to focus on cartoon characters and sprites.

  • Jack

    A lot of people in the world are starting to see how fucking cancerous all this shit is, and the hell that everyone being absolutely the same and accepted would cause, if i had that comic about the KKK guy going around the world and experiencing different cultures, and then the same comic where everyone is alike, wearing simpsons T-shirts while also sporting burkas and such, in the first one he sees that we should celebrate our differences and accept that we cannot all be the same, while in the one where everyone is the same, he is still a member of the KKK, wondering why everyone is the same everywhere

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    What’s with the UNs hateboner for Japan?

  • bateruchan

    i’m sick as shit so maybe that’s why
    but your comment makes zero sense to me and i read it like three times, even trying to chunk it up to take it in easier.

  • Jack

    they have fun and aren’t afraid of women and are open about sexualy explicit stuff, unlike the west is

  • Jenny Hozuki

    Isn’t this the same council that met to talk about harassment on Twitter? I wouldn’t put much stock into it. The UN is a huge organization. Not every meeting is important or holds power.

  • Mr0303

    The same UN that invited Anita and Zoe Quinn? I’m not surprised whatsoever.


  • Jack

    most of it is just rant, i’ll probably delete a bit of it

  • bateruchan

    going to the un with lavender hair….

  • Tyrone Jackson

    As the left generally is.

  • evilmajikman

    Egg the members of the UN’S houses. They’ll love that!

  • Tyrone Jackson
  • Not just as a member. Heading their frigging Human Rights Council.

  • Mr0303

    The best part is when she is checking her Twitter while Anita is crying how being called a liar and that she sucks is online harassment.

  • Stilzkin

    I love this picture

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    “Give me tits or give me death”

  • Alexis Nascimento-Lajoie

    Today I will remind you.

  • Mea K

    So where do I go to (politely) tell the UN to fuck off? Alternatively, where do I go to tell the Japanese government to not let themselves be bullied into self-censorship by these idiots? Either will do.

  • Derek



    But you know what? I apologize for not actively defending fanservice mechanics in a video game for a country with a limp wrist that can’t show actual sex in a video game.

  • Mr0303

    But remember – they are not trying to take our games away. By their definition sexual violence can be a slap on the butt. This is about control of free expression and the information flow. Welcome to 1984, comrade – Oceania has deemed any art from Eastasia a thought crime.

  • landlock

    Things like this never pan out, the Olympics are a bigger risk in the future IMO.

  • Stilzkin

    All of this sounds like satire, but it’s real.

    Wake me up.

  • Tyrone Jackson

    It means that the U.N. (and most governments) are now in the business of censoring and oppressing any sort of free will or diversity. They want EVERYWHERE to be “diverse” which would make nowhere be diverse. Different people bring different things to the table, as is seen by this case with Japan, and for some reason they hate that.

    That’s a part of cultural Marxism.

  • Jack


  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    I would love to shake the hand of whoever kept the UN from having their own military.

  • Derek

    Go to New York, grab a molly and done.

  • Noah Howard

    Good idea, force these games underground and make them gather more strength to laugh you out of the issue! Truly a win for justice! (<—that last bit is sarcasm)

  • Immahnoob

    I’ve already discussed this hell and back.

    There’s no reason for why they are doing this except to push their shitty narrative further.

    Japan’s statistics on crime in general, especially rape, are low. So they’re doing this only to stir shit.

    I HOPE that Japan will not fuck itself here, I mean, it’s unlikely since Otaku culture is a lot of money for them. But PLEASE, DON’T DO IT.

    You were the only hope FOR SOME ACTUAL GOOD PORN. JUST PLEASE.

  • alterku

    This is literally the best and most truthful answer. Japan knows how to make things fun. Even if almost all of it has been taken over by the casual mobile menace, there still exist pockets of real, true, joyful-experience developers.

  • Immahnoob

    Yeah, the UN doesn’t actually matter in the grand scheme of things. They don’t have any power whatsoever.

    Hopefully, Japan will tell them to fuck off.

  • Kamille Bidan

    “Silly gamers, no one is trying to take your video games away.”

  • Immahnoob

    At least, we have more examples of institutions wanting censorship.


  • alterku

    When they pry your waifu from your cold dead hands, I’m sure we’ll all praise our middle-eastern overlords. All of the snackbar!

  • Kamille Bidan

    The UN must be stopped

  • sanic

    I’ve been for the ban of the UN for years.

  • magicalfollower

    This shit again? Seriously?

  • British_Otaku

    No need for the mobile link, I’ve trained so hard that I can guess where the sources are in the article.

  • edtastic

    How could they come to this conclusion when they are talking about one of the safest nations on earth with a vast expanding population of males (20%+) who’ve sworn off sex with women. I’m sure these social justice phonies didn’t bother consulting Japanese women on their western sex negative feminists cultural imperialism agenda.

  • Leandro Teixeira

    I don’t know if the list of countries that will discuss this is the same list that is on the Treaty Body Webcast, but if it is, it’s got to be some kind of joke

  • Derek

    Because some parts of their media cannot handle sexual matters with “maturity”. But that is subjective anyway.

  • British_Otaku

    Where is that cartoon by a Japanese artist on Twitter? The one where he highlights how rape statistics are super low in Japan in comparison to the US despite them encouraging restrictions.

  • Immahnoob

    I don’t know about it.

  • Derek


    That said, they only announce it if it was “resolved”. Nothing like cooked up results to make their country look safer than it is. I mean sure sexual assaults are smaller, but fewer women actually report it to not bring up gossip. Japanese people have an aversion towards if they want to look good to others and being a mutterer is not helpful towards that.

  • Azure

    I think it would be good justice if the world united and burned the UN down to the ground.

  • British_Otaku

    Fair enough. It was more of a call for everyone else. I’ll try to track it down though, it matched your point.

    Sure mombot retweeted it once.

  • British_Otaku

    Perfect. Wish we had the artist name too but the image is perfect.

    Shame about the UK though and anyone who lives there.

  • Azure

    I would like to ask what is the point of the UN? What have / are they actually doing like what is their actual job?

  • Derek

    Humanitarian Aid, Peacekeeping. Good lofty goals, too bad it is in the hands of nations with zero experience but we gotta make them feel smug and importantant.

  • Derek

    The whole herbivore culture can be warped if they are denied of their daily dose of fap material.

    But let’s talk about the elephant in the room. How many of your friends who into this kind of stuff ever thrown an intervention or got one for unacceptable behavior which we all know as being creepy? How many of them knows about anime and it’s subcultures?

    Of course you didn’t but personal experiences says I know too much to still remember those scars.

  • inquisitormcsagington

    Fuck the genocides, slavery, executions (*innocent whistling from Saudi).
    Let’s focus on the right’s of non existent cartoon women.

    Bunch of worthless cunts.

  • inquisitormcsagington


  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    Wonderful fucking wonderful remember everybody “WERE NOT GOING TO TAKE YOUR GAMES AWAY” Who the fuck is the UN to tell people how to express themselves sexually? The terminology in this bill is so fucking vague too “sexual violence” as interpreted by SJW’S could mean a ban on ALL sex whatsoever. I didn’t think my hatred of SJW’S could grow any stronger but it turns out I was wrong. This is truly an totalitarian move to dictate what sexual fantasies people are allowed to enjoy. Fortunately the U.N. is impotent as fuck. Somebody needs to take a stand against these regressive facists before they destroy society. JAPAN DON’T BACK DOWN TO THESE FACISTS!

  • Dr.Weird

    *cough* fascist here, we’re not with these faggots, also your spelling it wrong.

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    You’re an SJW? Because that’s whom I am referring to.

  • British_Otaku

    Announce what? The threat?

    I might be sleepy already, but there is a lot of missing context in the text of the post itself.

  • Alex Drake

    He means SJW’s are an insult even to fascists

  • TsukuyomiMagi99


  • Derek

    Point is, don’t look at Japan as some land of milk and honey and realize the grass is always greener elsewhere.

  • ChaosBahamut

    Hey UN, boot Saudi Arabia from your HRC and then I’ll listen. Until then, your thoughts mean less than nothing.

  • carlotta

    oh my god ! like there isn’t a single problem on this planet for the UN to look into but fictional video games…

  • Guin

    Ah, another repressive act of freedom of expression just before the 2020 Olympics. Because you know, gotta turn Japan into a sterile PG13 country to avoid stupid punks posting “OHMAGERD JAPAN SO WERD XDD” What’s next? Censoring the giant penis festival that they do every eyar?

  • Guin

    Shh, it’s because they’re Muslims and they’re “of color.” We have to respect their culture.

  • alterku

    Damn straight! Stoning a non-believer to death is a cultural right! Beheading others and hate mobs due to a bad drawing is just the everyday for the hate-filled true believer.

  • ronin4life

    Hell, European countries need to get their shit together too. Like, stop discriminating against muslim women in France and freeing High-profile politician servinf Mega Pedophile pimps

  • Guin

    Well, it isn’t exactly like Africa or South America either, both continents being top contenders of rape.
    So yeah, despite you downplaying on the supposed purity Japan has over its low rape rate, there is still proof that the crime happens very rarely in comparison to the rest of the world.

  • Guin

    I say beating the shit out of Saudi Arabia takes more precedence.

  • Immahnoob

    Soon, she’ll moderate nothing. Twitter is dying.

  • makomk

    Honestly, that might be actually an improvement. At least we don’t have to worry about the fictional women being imprisoned and raped by their supposed rescuers, unlike with the real-world “anti sex trafficking” programs the UN have pushed for.

  • ronin4life

    Just to throw this out there, The way crimes are handled, from all levels of prevention up to prosecution, is quite different from most other nations. Many crimes go un prosecuted or even un investigated just because it makes fewer waves and issues for people than doing so would. It is also suggested women in Japan report cases of rape and molestation FAR less than elswhere.

    So those recorded rates aren’t necessarily representative of actual criminal behavior. Not that this should have much, if anything, to do with entertainment products anyway…

  • Immahnoob



  • Immahnoob

    Citation needed. But yes, it has nothing to do with fiction if rates increase, mostly when they decrease.

  • アントナント

    The world itself has become a parody

  • Guin

    People like Ken Akamatsu won’t stand for this. We need an equivalent of an MLK or even goddamnn Malcolm X. I’m usually not into reactionary counter activism since they tend to be somewhat cringey, but these clowns keep pushing the wrong buttons.


  • Laytonaster

    I’d say “how the mighty have fallen”, buuuuut… were the U.N. ever really all that useful in the first place?

  • Bitterbear

    UN staffers are attacking eroge because it interferes with their pedo searches.

  • The debate here seems to be serious. I can only see Japan like this: “okay, we’ve heard you, but hey… we don’t give a damn lololol it’s money”

  • Leandro Teixeira

    burn funds that could be used towards curing the ill or elimiating famine and using them in finding problems where they don’t exist and “fixing” said problems

  • Esdese a best

    How can you see into my eyes
    Like open doors?
    Leading you down into my core
    Where I’ve become so numb

    Without a soul
    My spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
    Until you find it there
    And lead it back home

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can’t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    Call my name and save me from the dark

    (Wake me up)
    Bid my blood to run
    (I can’t wake up)
    Before I come undone
    (Save me)
    Save me from the nothing I’ve become

    Now that I know what I’m without
    You can’t just leave me
    Breathe into me and make me real
    Bring me to life

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can’t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    Call my name and save me from the darkness I’ve become

    (Wake me up)
    Bid my blood to run
    (I can’t wake up)
    Before I come undone
    (Save me)
    Save me from the nothing I’ve become

    Bring me to life
    (I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
    Bring me to life

    Frozen inside without your touch
    Without your love, darling
    Only you, all the life among the dead

    (All of this I, I can’t believe I couldn’t see)
    (Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me)
    I’ve been sleeping a thousand years, it seems
    Got to open my eyes to everything

    (Without a thought)
    (Without a voice, without a soul)
    (Don’t let me die here)
    (There must be something more)
    Bring me to life

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can’t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    Call my name and save me from the darkness I’ve become

    (Wake me up)
    Bid my blood to run
    (I can’t wake up)
    Before I come undone
    (Save me)
    Save me from the nothing I’ve become

    Bring me to life

    Bring me to life

  • アントナント

    UN want to save the poor japanese elves

  • NuclearCherries

    The UN is a joke.

    It’ll do more good to get rid of it than keep it around at this state.

  • ronin4life

    It isn’t just the UN either lol. Been trying to follow “Japan” on Google news by searching it every once in a while, and every story is about how much Japan sucks at something or how evil they were for WWII.

    Doesnt help Japan’s case in this regard that they have an introspective, self-blaming culture either.

  • RobertParker14

    Erm, they do focus on all sorts of women’s issues all around the world including raping/torturing in the middle east. They just happen to be talking about Japan at this moment, in the UN project which is currently under discussion in this thread.


    You’re just doing the typical reactionary thing of thinking “Hey these people happen to be talking about Thing X at this time, so therefore it follows that they don’t care about Thing Y”. Which, if you think about it, I am sure you will realize is a logically flawed way of thinking.

  • Alistair

    Remember “They not taking away our games”

    But only allow third party (UN) to take away our games by stealth covert.

    If this succeed it only highlight of what they truly up to these SJWs cockblock twats.

    But what irony the very same UN that would take that decision against cartoon characters that dabble in “Real child porn imagines” shows double standards & if this farce goes through it proves that they indeed are bully & pick on Japanese Devs.

    & the crash of video games would happen because I would boycott every FUCKING SJW game on the market tell my family & my friends to do the same.

    But I think UN is smart I doubt they would sink that low & listen to Anita.

  • RobertParker14
  • Daryl Corey

    Japan gives even less of a shit about what the UN says than the US. This is easily seen in their continued research into the tastyness of Whales. This will ammount to nothing The UN femtard branch with bluster, Japan will ignore them, Femtards may beg for sactions first world nations will ignore them Japan will continue as normal

  • RobertParker14

    They do focus on that as well. Is everyone at this site really so thick that they don’t realize that just because one UN operation is targeting one area of women’s right, others aren’t also being targeted by different operations? I.e http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=53196#.Vr5lU_KLTIV

  • Immahnoob

    Yeah, lets talk about a country with low criminal statistics for no reason at all.

    You do understand that they want to censor video games, right? They think that’s actually an objective.

  • RobertParker14


    Just one example, there are hundreds of other examples of UN organizations helping to tackle actual real women issues, if you bother to look, rather than just wallowing in ignorance which fits your view of how the world works. But that would mean challenging your own beliefs wouldnt it?

  • Kiryu

    To the UN or whoever wants to ban the games i like go fuck yourselves.I should take an ally of Saudi Arabia that lectures me on womens rights seriously?What a joke the UN is.

  • RobertParker14

    They exist to promote international cooperation.


    They do lots of good work, such as this :

    Nationalists and right wingers tend to hate it, because the very nature of its existence is internationalist. It exists to promote internationalism (countries working together to improve conditions everywhere) rather than nationalism (every country working to improve conditions for itself, i.e an isolationist state or an expansionist, imperial state).

  • Narmy

    They can’t be that focused on women’s rights if they have the resources to waste on useless shit like this. Plus inviting abusers like Zoe Quinn to speak is simply counterproductive.

  • Alistair

    I wonder if this would get news coverage on Tuesday on BBC NEWS 24 as it did not foces on gamergate. Even on sky news hmm.

    Maybe they waiting to write up on the passing of video games that fucktards SJWs destroyed & we go back to having weak economy because some people can’t tell fucking different between a real person or a fictional ones.

  • Kiryu

    Yes,useful as a puppet organisation to the US.

  • Amon

    Remember kids the UN once vowed to stop genocides from happening and yet they still failed at it. They seems to have learn from their predecessors the league of nation who vowed to stop world war after the first and look how that turn out.

  • Immahnoob

    Pretty much what Narmy said. They’re wasting resources on areas that don’t need them.

    Besides the objectives being senseless. Banning video games as an objective should make it clear that the UN is slightly retarded.

  • RobertParker14

    They have huge amounts of resources. They can “waste on useless shit like this” and do genuinely good stuff like this too:


    My only real point is I’m trying to point out how its stupid how people here don’t seem to realize that it’s possible for a huge multi national org to do more than one thing at once.

  • Okay, now I can wrap my thoughts on this without using twitter.

    Besides the usual crap that we’ve been seeing with these groups so far, I have a feeling that the other reason why the UN is bringing this up, and why I feel the Japanese government might eat up this bullshit, is because of the 2020 Summer Olympics that’ll be taking place in Tokyo. Everyone’s gonna be looking to Tokyo, and Japan as a whole. And during the downtime in between all the events taking place, the media’s going to do those little features talking about Japanese culture, which may very well include one of Japan’s largest exports: manga and anime, as well as videogames. Japan’s government, being made of the cheapest glass, will bend to the will of whatever the UN says unless the people and the artists stand up and fight for their rights. Japan’s government has been picking away at the freedoms of anime and manga creators little by little, with some successes (and some failures as well).

    In other words, if anyone’s seen that one episode of South Park where Nathan talks about what PC is, that’s what this is. You can read his quote below.

    While there might be some good intentions on the CEDAW proposal, this one clause needs some serious re-thinking, and hopefully a complete removal. With how broad it is, it could be used and abused for any dumb reason. If this shit goes through, the idea of “getting the Japanese copy to avoid censorship” will be meaningless if the origin country has it censored too.

    I feel kinda helpless here since there’s not much we can do outside of Japan, as it has to be Japanese (and foreign) creators working in Japan that have to speak out and rise up against this. I guess the best we can do is share what we know so far in regards to what’s been happening here, and spread the information to the Japanese creators and the fans that follow them.

  • RobertParker14

    I didn’t read anywhere where they said they want to do this. I read a lot of people going into hysterics and acting like offendatrons because that is what they THINK they want to do.

  • Immahnoob

    Uhhhhh… This is about Japan.

    And uhhhhh… No, it’s clearly written on the paper what they want to do.

  • Guin

    At least there’s a group that’s fighting back that self-immolation even if they’re 2RIGHT4ME.

    Germany on the other hand. My god, they take self-hating to a whole new level.

  • Mellow_MH

    Please, lord, don’t let all the fake get hurt.

  • Alistair

    I agree the UN too got a illness called paranoid the same shit SJWs feels the same paranoid as you could be walking behind a woman going to the shops & bingo you be called a would be rapist (stalker)

    The same paranoid people that think cartoon characters needed to be protected same as real person & that you treat cartoon characters you treat real women too.

    The same with music, books, films, & TV shows they wreak havoc.

  • Alistair

    How about SJWs code book number 101 none of these.

    We not just taking away your games but your hobby, your life making it less fun, etc etc.

  • Kiryu

    Having fun is offensive,we should all be depressed in the perfect SJW utopia.

  • BurgerUnit

    I like how it’s first on their list.

    “Now before we deal with actual living human beings, we need to discuss treatment of the waifus”

    Thankfully I think it’ll only result in The UN wagging their finger and then being promptly ignored.

  • sanic

    I already commented but I just went to twitter and this was at the top of my feed


  • Shocker Rider GG

    they tried this also in 2009 and i think in 2015 i bet it will be a failure again

  • Grey

    It’s a good thing that the UN is a corrupt, ineffectual, hypocritical, bloated bureaucracy with it’s own track record of legitimate human rights abuses to answer for.

    Anime titties everywhere are probably still safe for now.

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    No wonder why actual female right activists think 3rd wave feminism is a joke.

  • BurntToShreds

    Yeah, most of their talk is just that, talk. They need to put on a show that they’re actually doing things when in fact they are quite toothless.

  • Alistair

    Okay let’s have a look at that UN program.

    Yup it did say child, not cartoon child so have they got the facts right & know the difference between fact from fiction.

    There is no need to discuss anything related to video games why don’t what they preach & do something like real women problems at the workplace, at home.

    & not bloody knee jerk about cartoon fictional characters.

    I wonder do UN MEMBERS play COD Or even GTA if so you be a murderders scum lords. 2 sides of a coin.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    I see Japan’s low crime rates compared to other countries and wonder why they are bringing this up. There is no reason for it. They can consolidate effort to actual fucking problems instead of what some Otakus and Weebs jack off to.

    They’re just trying to stir up shit with their “sexual violence against women” comment. Remember, noone cares about sexual violence against men. Why doesn’t the UN try to stop ALL sexual violence? Hint: They have pedophiles working there.

  • LurkerJK

    This is what happens when you have a bunch of useless suits with way too much time on their hands, they either wack themselves silly or they start banning things, what is even the point of the UN ?

  • scemar


    This is their big charge, the one they’ve been getting ready for.

    Are we ready to stop it?

  • Leandro Teixeira

    This is just like the TPP they show a bunch of convenient issues and ways to solve them and in the middle of those they simply put something that is covenient to them to have more probability of being accepted. It’s kind of a contract that promises you a good pay check and nice work hours but in those little letters at end of the contract it says that you have to be somebody’s bitch or something

  • Immahnoob

    Do you have any data to give me for this statement?

    “last time I checked, represents 1 fifth of their economy”

    It would be helpful.

  • scemar

    Middle east or africa?
    Try europe.
    And no, they don’t care.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Why would they stop pedophilia? Going after 3D denies them of their comfort children.

  • Azure

    Well looking at today’s world that is clearly not working and should have been done in moderation. Nothing will be fixed if everyone ends up in a shitty situation that we are dangerously close to getting into.

  • LurkerJK

    They dont want to stop real things, that would rob them of arguments to push their shit on everything else

  • Alistair

    Very good point not all women are femmists SJWs & women voice actresses do a very good job at these awkward scenes.

    They know it a character they voiced & take the money for that job next we be having sex scenes banned in films & tv shows because it may offended people that actor & actresses get paid too doing sex scenes.

    So where do they draw that line.

  • アントナント

    Feminism as a whole is a joke.

  • Uncle Heffy

    That’s the thing. TV shows and movies will never be touched. For some reason, anything that we make is OK. If Japan makes it, it’s intolerable.

    The UN is comprised of a bunch of bigots. They all probably watch shows like Game of Thrones, which has all of the above, and is sometimes worse than Japanese produced media.

    Someone needs to teach them a lesson.

  • BurgerUnit

    I had to make sure I didn’t accidentally visit The Onion at first.

    Unfortunately it really was just the UN trying to cement their useless status.

  • BurntToShreds

    Fact of the matter is, that stuff makes money. The doujinshi market alone (explicit and non-explicit) has an estimated value of US$588 million a year. That is a significant sum of money, and combined with the markets for anime, games etc. it is an economic powerhouse. Taking the lewd doujinshi, anime, and games out of that equation would not bode well. Japan sure as hell won’t do anything about this until they find some other economic facet to replace all that cash, which won’t happen anytime soon. They’re an island nation so they can’t pick up the slack with things like mass resource exports other countries can do.

    What the UN wants to do is incompatible with the economic realities of Japan, and therefore the likelihood of Japan kowtowing to the UN on this issue is slim to none.

  • Immahnoob

    There’s no statement about it being a fifth of Japan’s economy, but it is a substantial part of it.

    I’ll check the links given by Wikipedia.

  • Megamatics

    UN is a joke.

  • Leandro Teixeira

    True that, sorry if it is false but according to that it says:

    “The economic impact of otaku has been estimated to be as high as ¥2 trillion ($18 billion)”
    Even for a country as rich as Japan it is still a big slice of money they would be messing with

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    There is also the fact that there is no proof it leads to ACTUAL violence against women. Just look at Japan’s rape rates.

  • Nagato

    Can’t we just ban the UN instead?

    It’s not like it’s much more than another tool through which the US is able to make the rest of us serve their best interests anyway, no matter how hypocritical those may be.

  • Deadagent

    Unfortunately it’s not a very funny joke

  • Their end-game i just straight-up banning pornography, right?

  • Mike Campbell

    Virtual women made by real men and I think the un meant games like rapelay glorifying rape and sexual violence

  • Neojames82

    The UN does fuck all with the world at large, you really think these assholes can make Japan stop doing this? Ahahahaha, yeah good luck with that.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Their end-game isn’t about helping people, so yes.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Now post a link to rapelay leading to actual harm against a woman. With that logic the UN should be banning ALL violence and not just sexual violence.

  • N-Cop


    Wake me up!!!!!!!!!

  • Fyrex

    I knew the U.N. has lost it’s grip on reality somewhat, but now they lost it completely.

  • grgspunk

    And thus, history repeats itself. It repeats itself all because we didn’t get rid of the sex-negative feminists when they were trying to fuck with the Japanese games market during the Rapelay scandal in 2009.

    I bet half of you morons on this site don’t even remember what I’m talking about.

    Now they will be allying with the modern-day Tumblrina SJWs to continue the crusade. All because of our own inaction. When will we ever learn that playing nice and playing to win are never synonymous?

  • Gamer

    Video games are not real life.

    Why can’t they tell the difference? It must be time to ban R rated movies, Adult Content music, Romance novels, porn, and every other form of entertainment.

    Sounding a lot like Fascism up in here.

  • Mike Campbell

    wow your defending rapelay just now have you ever seen the game, there is a reason why people didn’t like games like this, super columbine massacre rpg, and ethnic cleansing

  • Ashten Strider

    Not only am i upset at the prospect of no longer being able to play my weeaboo games where i can rub a girl’s boobs, but I’m more pissed that in a world where in some places women are treated like nothing and have no rights that the fucking UN is deciding to attack /video games/ as opposed to actual problems.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Rapelay is a shit game. Doesn’t mean it causes harm to REAL women.

  • Nin

    It might be related to how the olympics are occurring in Japan soon.

    Though even if the Olympics occurred in Saudi Arabia, the UN would probably turn a blind eye to its obvious abuses.

  • lpchaim

    Let’s just… leave fiction and art alone as long as they don’t hurt anyone, shall we? I’m all for real discussion regarding anything that might be problematic, but outright proposing a targeted ban is just asinine and comes off as the good old “Stop liking things I don’t!”.

  • Carl619

    Unless there is a scientific proof that games can lead to violence, the reason for banning games like Rapelay are ideological or because people offended don’t want to look to other side.

    For example Hatred finally didn’t get banned because it is a game about killing innocent and there where a lot people trying to ban it or at least desired it.

  • Nin

    If you ban eroge, many women would make a lot less money. Someone has to voice the cute girls getting raped. Banning rape games would do way more harm then good.

  • Nin

    Bah, we’ll just make a new league of nations after World War 3. History repeats itself.

  • Carl619

    That isn’t a good reason to ban games, just because some people want to be intellectual and have the need to tell people that they only play “adult” games. They cannot see that the reason media doesn’t treat some topics with maturity is because they just don’t want to make mature games and make funny games instead without pretensions.

  • OverlordZetta

    While I don’t agree with a lot of this, or the possibilities at any rate, I do think there’s a bit of devil’s advocating in order here, since it seems a lot of stuff is being overlooked.

    Namely, and please correct me if I’m wrong, that’s only reported crimes, right?

    This is obviously an issue elsewhere too (and indeed, with male-targeted crimes that often aren’t even on the table in these discussions), but these are probably things that are considered too, and so should be in these discussions too.

  • Boku

    “no clear guidelines as to what “sexual violence” entails”
    And that’s just the way they want it. Leave things unpredictably up in the air, make them dance and never even attempt to press the subject in any capacity. As long as it’s never outlined what constitutes “sexual violence” they never have to worry about anyone side-stepping the rules since they can always enlarge the net when required.

  • Alùcard Impàlèr

  • Dio Brando

    No please, UN, don’t stand up. You just sit right there, don’t worry about anything actually important like human rights in 3rd world countries. Pretend you’re doing something useful by banning porno games.

  • Immahnoob

    “Namely, and please correct me if I’m wrong, that’s only reported crimes, right?”

    Please, unless you can make the criminal cases skyrocket with your unreported cases or you have some actually relevant data at all (AKA, if they’re unreported, you can’t actually guess how much they’re unreported anyway), then this argument does not stand.

    UN Panel tackles sexual violence against men :


    You’re doing it again! Why does it come so natural to you people simply to declare “They don’t care about sexual violence against men!” and you can’t do a simple Google search first, to establish if you are talking the truth or are just going to say something which makes you look foolish to anyone with an education who actually knows how to research!

    I honestly think the reason you make these claims without even trying to substantiate them is that you are terrified of finding something which goes against your own narrative.

  • djluke_1993

    Good job UN instead of doing your job properly you’d rather go after something thats entirely virtual and also doing alot of people’s jobs in the process… But don’t worry you still would have protected those virtual women.

  • Code : Verde

    After looking at the proposal, it’s seriously like that episode of the Simpsons. If you want a law passed, just paperclip it to something more important..

    tl;dr here’s how it might have went down.


    Just replace the topic with Violence against women in video games.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    “Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women”
    “against women”
    Nothing is stated about banning media containing sexual violence against men. Argue my original fucking point or shutup.

    “I honestly think the reason you make these claims without even trying to
    substantiate them is that you are terrified of finding something which
    goes against your own narrative.”

    Are you too fucking stupid to explain to me why they only want to attack sexualized women in Japanese media? I know you don’t have a good explanation but let’s fucking hear it anyway.
    I think that the reason the UN is attacking artists is because it’s much easier than going after real sex offenders. Considering the UN harbors sex offenders anyway.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    It’s run by sex offenders and pedophiles. Creating controversy over nothing important is much easier than actually helping people.

  • Jack

    Its not rape if its an elf

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    What you said is important. Compared to the US, Japan has a lot more women working in these industries. Eroge, Video Games, Hentai. (both animated and non animated) Not just artists and production team members, voice actresses too. The UN is going to put a lot of honest, hard working women out of a job simply because of the feelings of women in the west.

    Meanwhile you have women being raped across Europe and being killed in the middle east because they were raped. The UN needs to be removed ASAP. This is fucking insanity.

  • Mighty No. 56008

    Though fighting discrimination against women is a noble cause, but by banning sales of games/cartoons that involve “sexual violence against women.” is dangerously slippery slope.

    If by some chance the ban passes, what’s to stop it from affecting other forms of media? What’s to stop it from affecting the entire world? And why just stop with “sexual violence” and fight ANY form of “discrimination” against women?

    And of course there’s the whole discussion/debate that having such material in the media doesn’t actually make people sexually violent nor does it “endorse it”. Or how about the fact that I’m sure there are cartoons/games out there that put men on the receiving end of sexual violence. Or that there are far greater issues out there that the committee can/should concentrate on.

  • chaoguy

    Of course, the alternative is puritanism.

  • Derek

    I do.

    And it isn’t inaction so much as NONE of us have any clout.

  • Derek

    Of course not, but’s who counting?

    But let’s look at it from our point of view, today’s culture values maturity. If Japan wants acceptance, they have to be more mature about their sole means of obtaining influence which is through their culture. Given that we rabidly consume it, we need better examples from Japan. Fanservice is great and all, but the whole “deer in headlights” hasn’t made Japan many friends.

  • Derek

    Don’t fucking lump myself and the rest of nichegamer with your group of insecure adults. Some people can handle consuming content and not give a shit what others think.

    “today’s culture values maturity”

    Which is why divorce rates in the west are sky high, teen pregnancy is rampant, people protest free speech daily at universities and insulting corporations and/or celebrities gets you mocked.

    “If Japan wants acceptance, they have to be more mature about their sole
    means of obtaining influence which is through their culture.”

    Look up censorship in Japan. Then compare it to the west and get back to me.

    “If Japan wants acceptance, they have to be more mature about their sole
    means of obtaining influence which is through their culture.”

    Pic fucking related. Also, f you think American Media with its scripted “Reality” TV is any more mature you have some serious fucking reflecting to do.

    “Given that we rabidly consume it, we need better examples from Japan.”

    Post some good US examples to send to Japan. I dare you motherfucker.

    “Fanservice is great and all, but the whole ‘deer in headlights’ hasn’t made Japan many friends.”

You know, REAL harassment, not any of that Twitter-based BS that the current generation of SJWs have accused us of doing.

    As long as unleashing the “Internet Hate Machine” on them remains off the table, then any failures we suffer IS due to inaction.

    I remember all the shit that these sex-negative fuckers tried to do to my weeb market–They’re the ones that caused the Tokyo government to persue the “fictional materials” ban. They cast the western fanbase in a negative light in the eyes of Japanese VN developers. They caused Minori to close off their site to western IPs and sabotage the TLwiki. They’re the ones that spooked JAST to censor Kazoku Keikaku at the last minute. They’re the ones who spooked Mangagamer into considering censoring Soul Link and Higurashi. They’re the ones who spooked Funimation into considering the censorship of Dance in the Vampire Bund.

    With the Rapelay scandal, these assholes set the western anime, manga, J-game, and VN markets back by YEARS. They deserve neither respect nor mercy.

  • grgspunk

    I just hope this doesn’t have any adverse effects for us. Like, if the games media were to push more of their hatred of japanese games, we see less games over here. It’s already starting with either censorship or outright choosing not to release a game.

    Thank you for showing us this Robert, but, still the main issue that we are talking about is needless censorship. I do appreciate your being able to take a stance, but, in all honesty, it’s the fact that the UN feels the need to make this a topic of discussion, which leaves a taste of disgust.

  • Mighty No. 56008

    What, you mean how they do focus on other issues that matter? Sure they do, but that doesn’t explain why this was the first item listed nor why they are even making this an issue to begin with.

    But what does concern me is this:

    #7 states:

    Please indicate the measures taken to ban the sale of video games or cartoons involving rape and sexual violence against girls and women and to raise awareness among the producers of such materials, in line with the Committee’s general recommendation No. 19 on violence against women. Please also indicate the measures taken to address the mass production, distribution and use of pornographic videos in which women are targets of sexual violence, as well as the portrayal of sexualized commercial images of women.

    Granted I’m not 100% sure what is being said here or the exact context, but it sounds like they are already wanting to move forward with this idea?

    The problem is when the UN stops focusing on solving major global issues (peace, environment, poverty) and starts getting sidetracked by tiny side issues dreamed up by radical social liberals with pet agendas.

  • Derek

    Your definition of that is awfully shortsighted, I have seen softcore porn in western games, bare nudity on a console game that isn’t covered by bars of light. But go ahead say Japan is open about sexually explicit stuff. Sure if you say PCs, but the consoles disagree with you.

  • Derek

    Now, who said I wanted to see those games done away with? My opinions is based on the grim reality that we only got so much money to spend on and if I want Japanese games, I want it to treat me with some degree of respect. Yakuza is a clear example of a Japanese that shows respect to it’s country. Is it a walking sim? Is it one of those shitty walking sims as approved as the queen bitch Sarkeesian herself?

    But go ahead and call me pro censorship for wanting quality games. My angle has always been “Good games before shitty ones”. Fanservice and violence has never been an issue. Mediocrity is an issue.

  • Kiryu

    Jim Sterling said so so you have to believe him.

  • Kiryu

    Funny thing is radical feminists are the majority consumers of hardcore porn.

  • Joe

    True but 15 years ago the UN also correctly warned the world about the stupidity of Conservatives deciding to invade Iraq….

  • grgspunk

    Who said you wanted to see those games done away with? I did, that’s what. That’s all that matters.

    Newsflash: Your kind of “fan” has been crusading against “mediocre” titles for YEARS before SJW-approved walking sims came into anyone’s view. Don’t think I’ve never dealt with people like you infesting our fandom before.

    Almost every single person that argues against mediocrity in weeb titles have specifically directed their “criticisms” towards low-quality titles, particularly those with violence or fanservice.

    That might not seem like anything on paper, but you know what I also noticed? Almost every one of those fuckers have also defended or promoted an apologetic stance whenever the issue of a title censored crops up. NOT ONCE have I seen any “critics” in sites like ANN deriding poor quality fanservice titles without downplaying or defending censorship whenever it pops up.

    You know what I concluded from this? You pretentious assholes like to blur, if not outright destroy the line between “taste” and “quality” for the sake of shaping what is/isn’t acceptable in the market. If some critically-acclaimed title pops up and happens to have both, you guys like to come up with stupid excuses as to why its violent/sexual content is somehow different from the “less quality” titles.

    Seriously. Is it just me, or is every single “critic” of poor-quality fanservice also just happens to be defenders of censorship? Could it just be that I’m I simply mistaking correlation with causation?

    Regardless of the answer, it’s IRRELEVANT, because the Japanese studios and the western localization companies will misinterpret your intentions and automatically assume you’re crusading against the fanservice, not the lack of quality. “Fans” like you have consistently failed to demonstrate that your “criticisms” toward violent/sexual content aren’t calls for censorship. “Fans” like you have repeatedly failed to assure anyone that you actually respect the right of such content to exist.

    With that in mind, why do we need “fans” like you in the first place?

    Us fanservice/Type-B otakus have been brought to believe for too long that those who don’t think the same way towards violent/sexual content in our titles still need to be respected for their opinions. After the hysteria that resulted from the Rapelay scandal of 2009, I finally realized how costly of a mistake that was.

    You don’t deserve respect. You won’t live and let live. SJW or not, you’ll just find every way possible to influence the market to get rid of anything you might find objectionable. Our fandom should’ve just stigmatized and ousted you guys like we did to those who dared to defend 4Kids’ atrocious editing practices in the mid-2000’s.

    Let me say this for those who don’t have the balls to say it: I couldn’t care less about your right to “free speech”–You don’t belong here, asswipe.

    It is a well know fact Video games is the easiest scapegoat to go after then other media platforms.

    It cost money to go after real sex offenders & low cost cutting doesn’t help the matter.

    it doesn’t cost much to criticism somethings as talk is cheap but I see a empass here this if go ahead will go back & bite SJWs on the very arse they loath.

    The western Dev will be effected too as western Dev games treatment of women are also questionable like strippers in GTA etc etc.

    You think the video games industry will stand for that also it would spread across to other media as well because you have to be fair across all boards.

    No I see a smokescreen for bigger things to come & I won’t stand by.

  • Zanard Bell

    Good to know that when Europe is burning, the Middle East is plagued by Islamic hoodrats, and there’s a climate crisis going about, the UN chose to focus on FICTION to champion for human rights. Oh wait, scratch that. Female rights.

    And also, one good thing about it is that the UN basically has no power at all when it comes to policing everything it tries to champion. Just remember, kids: you shoot it if the helmet is blue.

    “if I want Japanese games, I want it to treat me with some degree of respect.”
    There is no greater respect to humanity than allowing complete artistic freedom and freedom of expression. Which Japan doesn’t do, because you still haven’t looked up their censorship laws.

    Also is it Maturity or Mediocrity that is the issue to you? Which one?

  • アントナント

    I love Yakuza games but that doesn’t stop me to love the “mediore fanservice games” (as you label them) too.

  • アントナント

  • jackie901 .

    This is worrying. I recall a while back CNN (I think) tried to beat the war drums to get people to declare war on Manga and they did it by taking a tame image from some Manga and putting black censorship bars on it then posted the image with some caption claiming it was child porn and that that image was representative of the whole Manga industry.

    I have no doubt in my mind they’ll do the same here with video games by claiming the likes of RapeLay represents all Japanese Eroge games and try to pass a ban. Given the track record of the UN’s self declared “Gaming experts” and their ties to individuals known to fabricate evidence for their cause I have no doubt in my mind they will fake evidence to support banning games.

  • Madbrainbox

    Let’s say all Japanese games involved rape and horrible abuse towards women.Let’s say all you’d do in said game was to rape and abuse women.That doesn’t give them the fucking right to censor them.I’m an adult.|I don’t need someone else what can and cannot play.What can and cannot watch.What can and cannot fucking say.

  • Alistair

    There a another form of sexual violence in games Ecchi games so it still a smokescreen that covers other games extreme violence with sexual images it be given a free pass that all games that have treatment of women.

    Would be banned.

  • Hiecchi

    Of course, the western culture knows what is the best for the rest of the world…..there is really only one word for this; culture terrorism!

    still, its only against women so “traps” and “futanari” are okay! and dont forget monstergirls because there are no humans or furry
    the UN can do nothing against the creativity japans, the only way to stop is a ban against all pornography/erotic

  • ivanchu77

    Should i get worried or there´s little chance they actually manage to pass the ban on japanese games?

  • RobertParker14

    I am fine with that point of view. But it must be expressed sensibly if you want people to listen and take notice (and otherwise, what’s the point of discussing it on the internet at all?)
    If you express it with hyperbole, hysteria and badly researched arguments (“The UN does nothing for real problems/men’s sexual assault) – when it’s so easily disproven – everyone will just think you are being hysterical and illogical.

  • RobertParker14

    Erm, go and read up on it again – no one has said the problem is due to the gender of those who are creating the content. They are taking issue with the content itself. They aren’t “against women in the workforce”, as you state, that would imply that they are taking issue with the gender of the creators.
    Honestly I’m a bit surprised that you could be confused by this!

  • RobertParker14

    I was simply proving that the point I was responding to – that the UN do nothing except this type of “censorship” – is untrue. If you think the UN invent entire programs just so they can make a website about them and pretend they are doing actual good work, as a cover for their real work which is censorship of art – you are paranoid.

  • RobertParker14

    So? The link I posted above doesn’t say anything about ending rape of women.
    They have different programs aimed at tackling male victims of sexual violence, and female ones – presumably because they are separate issues with separate underlying causes.
    Just because one type of program exists, doesn’t mean that the other can’t, as well. You just seem to be ignoring facts because they don’t fit your narrative which I find intellectually dishonest.

  • 萌ゲー

    This isn’t the first time they have tried to ban games, let alone anything in Japan, so it is DEFINITELY on their agenda.



  • RobertParker14

    And also further to my previous reply – this issue has nothing to do with crime rates. Go and read the article which is actually linked instead of simply getting outraged by a blog writer’s interpretation of the UN agenda.

    If you had read the link you would see that they aren’t looking at Japan in isolation at all, the report is investigating a number of countries including Iceland, Sweden, Mongolia, Czech Republic, Vanuatu, Haiti and Tanzania. Many of them, you will note, are also not known for high crime rates.
    Honestly you guys are ready to get offended about anything without even reading the actual facts, aren’t you? Remind you of anyone?

    Agreed it’s nonsense but the anti-sex attitudes in Japan are dangerous for the economy.

Too few are having children, will lead to lots of problems down the line.

    For what it’s worth, there was lots of rape against men in the wars in the Congo and subsequent guerilla conflicts there.

    Generally speaking, Congolese nations have always had women soldiers, which were sadly just as apt to rape and pillage as the men.

    The UN did condemn it (along with the many other atrocities), never actually doing much about it. This goes for most of their work. I wouldn’t expect Japan to do anything about the UN’s latest whine aside from sending back a copy-pasted letter about how the government is inclusive and a load of diplomatic yadda yadda yadda.

  • Carl619

    But Japan’s media main target it’s Japan itself. When governement tried to illegalized lolicon, they only could put it in adult content stores and it was heavily criticized by artists. Their media only see japanese people as their only audience, only big names like naruto can give them big benefits to see western as a target audience. Why would they want to make their audience worldwide when most western people only sees anime as children’s cartoon, manga as weird japanese comic and japanese games as childish games when they already have a big group that buys their products? Many companies that tried to target their product to other audiences met their end, or only their franchise like command and conquer.

    We are talking about they could make laws to westernized their media, but the media isn’t the government, they have their own agendas and right now japanese public will prefer to see japanese weird anime than an american show with a japanese name.

    Our culture values maturity as a type sanctification but our media still sells sex and violence. The maturity right now is only a way to make our points of view more valid without the need of a proof. How many times we were talked that games are immature even today, while we have books or tv shows that do the same.

    Their reputation of immature isn’t only because of fanservice but some japanese tv shows are weird because they like absurd games.

  • Daryl Corey

  • grgspunk

    Stoop so low? More like we’d be LEVELING OURSELVES UP.

    So far, we have experienced nothing but defeat when it comes to these guys. The Tokyo manga ban that inspired the Shimoneta series is exactly because of pressure from these assholes.

    Do you not realize how much danger our favorite titles have been in as a result of all these assholes doing this bullshit? Has it ever occured to you how much we as a fandom would benefit from driving them out?

    Tell me, how much more must our media suffer before we take any definitive action?

    The old (I.E.: true) anonymous and their blackhatting ways from the mid-to-late 2000s (pre-Chanology) have done wonders to get the results they want: The threat of getting fucked by anonymous deterred G4 TechTV from doing an interview/documentary that would’ve provided negative TV coverage on 4chan. Their Longcat Crusades have terrorized sites like Subeta and Gaia Online from making money off of their memes. They’ve inflicted fear on countless Myspace/Facebook users who speak out against them (or provide them with laughs).

    All of this may seem like they’re just doing petty crap, but there’s one thing that you can’t deny: It worked.

    So what’s preventing any of us from learning from all this and applying it against the sex-negative feminists/SJWs, anti-fanservice “fans”, or even the individuals in the UN that want to see our sexual/violent titles gone? Only ourselves, that’s what.

    Tell me: What can we NOT gain from this? What is there to be gained by not exploring EVERY possibility to damage our opponents, regardless of legatlity? What is there to not gain from supressing and deterring those who wish to take away our titles from ever speaking up?

    It may seem petty to insist on breaking the law to ensure that your media remains uncensored, but IT’S OUR MEDIA THAT’S GETTING FUCKED WITH. As long as this perception of pettiness remains, that perception will continue to be used by the opposition to keep you at bay so that they can keep doing whatever the hell they want to do with your media. Thus, your favorite titles will continue to be censored again and again.

    When does it end? When do you start considering victory over morality? What is “freedom” to us if we continually allow those who wish harm to the things we cherish unhindered?

    As long as you insist that we’ll be “stooping low” by doing this, we will never win. History will repeat itself, just like with the Rapelay scandal, and it’ll only get worse. Our media will never know peace.

    The fact you had spent so much time nerdraging like this shows how utterly delusional ou are. Here is a hint, I am not calling for the removal of objectionable content.

    I am however allowed to saying the unpleasant facts like it is and it is up to the creator to listen. If they don’t fine, but I am not going to pretend that the only thing out of Japan is generic fanservice titles. I didn’t endure 5 years of crap from Compile Heart to finally get a digital uncensored version of a series I have held close to my heart for so long.

    I was saying that, in diplomacy, they will couch things in nice terms, regardless of the reality of the situation. The Japanese govt. may be less keen on gender balance, but I guarantee you the diplomats who pen the response (if they respond at all) will give a generic canned message about how Japan cares about women’s rights. But that goes for any country, you can replace ‘Japan’ with just about any country that is criticised. Unless they have an axe to grind of course, like Israel and being told to stop the settlements. :)

  • Evropi

    “What can we NOT gain from this?”

    I’ll give you two:

    1. Any semblance of respect. Ethical hacking is MAYBE fine as long as you’re a whisteblower, harassment never is. You may have noticed that
    Gamergate does condemn harassment, despite what Polygon and other morons
    say. Personally I’m indifferent (for the most part to GG) and against the SJWs. I won’t ruin their fucking lives over it, Christ. I certainly wouldn’t want anyone that rails against them to (rightfully) end up in prison. Violence is not the answer.

    Moreover, no, it didn’t work. Race and gender diversity is now an unshakeable part of the conversation. If you didn’t give Kotaku, Polygon and eventually the mainstream media fodder, it would be part of the conversation and developers would be less apt to censor themselves.

    It’s not about ‘playing nice’, it’s about dignity. You praise them for working through fear but that’s exactly what these supranational forces, like the UN want to do. Whatever happened to Christian values? I’d rather

    2. Having a life. They’re just games man. At this point, given all the reading you have done, I’m just about convinced you care far less about games than about games culture. You also care far too much about them in general. It’s sad that you work up so much anger over entertainment products, and then advocate for crime to defend them. Your whole post was a pastiche of what I honestly thought were a bunch of strawmen. I hope for you that you were merely playing it up.

  • scemar

    The UN is not all mighty, but it isn’t trivially irrelevant either.
    It should not be underestimated.
    They can go the slow erosion route, slowly chipping away freedoms with little things over time.

    Remember there’s also the olympics going on soon, and Japan has shown there might be bans on expression to make the country more PC friendly for the sensitive gaijins coming.
    And they’ve teased bans before.
    They might not seem it but Japan is constantly on the verge of implementing tighter anti expression regulations.

So who’s to say that the UN/Feminists won’t simply abuse the definition to include ALL forms of sexuality?

    Let’s say they are just targeting games/anime that have sexual violence against women. Believe it or not, I think games like Rapelay deserve to exist. It explores the darker aspects of the human psyche and human sexuality in a safe way. This type of material is targeted at adults because most sane adults can tell the difference between reality and fantasy. (Until there is some objective non feminist peer reviwed scientific study that establishes a clear correlation of the media one consumes and the increase of sexual violence against women then it’s harmless). But hell why doesn’t the UN go after Romance Novels also since some of them depict women marrying their rapists? Or how about Feminist porn that contains BDSM?

    I hate how the UN/Feminists are pissing at my feet and telling me it’s raining. This is an authoritarian move to police Japan’s sexuality.

US feminist and conservative joined forces in attempts to ban porn , and it was thrown out since the ability to even define what was porn or what was “Offensive images ” or even what was consider violence . Since there defintions overlap with murder mysteries and slasher films nad horror . since it heavily relied on there own subjective interpretation . Where talking about “Pictures here ” so not even an argument about physical people anymore , and a cross national sovereignty . UN is useless it has no real power to influence anything .

    “Nerdraging”? Is that the best you’ve got?

    Guess what? If I say that you’re pushing for the removal of objectionable content, then you’re pushing for the removal of objectionable content. The crap that you’ve been spewing falls neatly in line with what most pro-censorship “fans” in the otaku community:

    “It’s not censorship, it’s criticism!”

    “It’s not censorship, it’s localization!”

    “It’s not censorship if it’s content that makes anime/manga/J-games/VNs look bad!”

    “It’s not censorship if it’s content that make Japan look bad!”

    “It’s not censorship if it’s just generic fanservice!”

    “It’s not censorship if it’s content I don’t like!”

    I’ve got plenty more, but I’m pretty sure that’s more than enough to label you as pro-censorship. You think you’re allowed to say the “unpleasant facts” and that it’s up to the creators to listen? Not on my watch. If it weren’t for “fans” like you, we would’ve had MonMon for the Vita here uncensored in the first place. If it weren’t for “fans” like you, Idea Factory wouldn’t have had to pass on certain CH titles due to their risque content.

    SJW or not, “fans” like you have contributed to an ongoing narrative that treats developers and localization companies who have the courage to create and/or bring over fanservice titles with the utmost disrespect. That disrespect has translated to censorship of games brought over from Japan. That disrespect has translated to games from Japan being passed on for an overseas release. That disrespect has translated to games being censored WITHIN Japan itself.

    With that in mind, you don’t deserve to have a voice in MY weeb market. We would’ve had a lot more titles with content that pushes the boundaries if it weren’t for “fans” like you providing them negative feedback.

    I’m a GGrevolter? You’re joking, right? That board was founded by retards like Zan, Thidran, Drybones, and seattle4truth. I don’t associate myself with a board founded by morons who circlejerk each other on Youtube streams and hidden IRC chatrooms, trying to persuade GG’ers into obsessing over non-vidya-related politcs rather than vidya-related issues. They’d rather blackhat the owner of another GG board rather than the SJWs themselves, all because said owner of said board wasn’t a member of their little hidden circle of fucktards who tried to control GG from the behind the scenes. Really, dude? You’re lumping me with THEM?

    If what I’m saying justifies the LW’s crusade, then I just let them justify it. When the LWs talk about “harassment”, they refer to people putting up mean posts on their Twitter feed. When I talk about “harassment”, I refer to people sacking their websites and stealing their identities. Which do you think has the potential to cause more damage? It isn’t the Twitter shit, I can tell you that for sure.

    Whatever that the SJWs have been bitching about is NOTHING compared to what the old/true anonymous did back in the mid-to-late 2000s.

    What are the SJW’s cries of “harassment” compared to the attacks that Keith, owner of Subeta.org, suffered when his site got defaced, his identity stolen, emails leaked, social media accounts hacked, and his customers’ data compromised, all over an in-game cash shop item fashioned after the famous longcat meme?

    What are the SJW’s cries of “harassment” compared to the agony that Mitchell Henderson’s parents experienced in 2006, when they had to put up with prank phone calls for A YEAR AND A HALF due to a poorly-written Myspace obituary dedicated to their deceased son who “An Hero’d” himself?

    What are the SJW’s cries of “harassment” compared to the PHYSICAL harm that anon caused when they decided to hack the Epilepsy Foundation’s forums in 2008 by replacing all the links on the front page with links that redirect users to a webpage filled with flashing lights?

    Personally, I think the SJWs should be thanking the stars that whatever “harassment” they claim to be victims of is limited to what they consider to be unpleasant posts on Twitter. Not that they don’t deserve it, of course.

    If anything of such magnitude actually happend to the LW’s, I’d say it’s safe to assume they’d kill themselves within a couple days. The only thing up for debate is whether they’d kill themselves by slitting their wrists, OD’ing on sleeping pills, or by deliberately fattening themselves to a target weight of 1000 lbs by feasting on the hundred of pizzas that would’ve been sent to their doorsteps on THEIR dime.

    Oh, how a man can only dream.

  • grgspunk

    Newsflash #1: We never had any respect from the assholes that keep coming after us, asswipe. When it comes following the “rules”, our opposition holds all the cards–They’ve MADE the rules. When the games that you enjoy and the people that enjoy them have been subject to near-constant ridicule and relentless censoring as a result of their “rules”, there is no respect to be gained from following them. So what is there to LOSE if we don’t follow them?

    Newsflash #2: I don’t speak for Gamergate. I speak for MYSELF. I may side with GG, but ultimately I stand by my own rules. If ruining the lives of the opposition is needed to ensure that my games and my media stay safe, then I’ll condone it, regardless of what anyone or everyone else in GG says. GG is a leaderless movement: You don’t set any rules for me. If violence is never the answer, why does war continue to exist? Because it often IS the answer, despite how much as you’d like to think otherwise.

    Newsflash #3: Violence “didn’t work” in forcing SJWs and corrupt journos out because there was no violence to speak of. The only thing that the SJWs complained about were disagreeable posts on Twitter that they took out of context to make themselves look like victims. Do you honestly believe this amounts to anywhere near the kind of “violence” that I’ve been suggesting? If not, how the hell do you know it won’t work if it’s never been tried on them before?

    Newsflash #4: Dignity? What dignity is this that you speak of? Your dignity in your ability to not stand up to anyone while allowing everyone that wishes your speech done away with to accomplish just that? Your pride in being a figurative (or literal) masochist in the face of the the enemy? Your pride in having the hi-score in the number of times you and your “fandom” have been defeated by pro-censorship dipshits? No thanks. I’ll trade my “dignity” for victory any day of the week.

    Newsflash #5: Race and diversity are only as relevant as the game developers wish to include them in their video games. If sites like Kotaku or Polygon weren’t hell-bent on shoving the issue down our throats and respected the right for “non-diverse”, “racially-insensitive”, “misogynistic”, “transphobic” and “cis-gender” fanservice titles featuring copious amounts of “high-impact sexual violence” to exist, then THAT is what would make the devs less apt to censor themselves. But since that’s obviously not the case, that’s why we’re here right now.

    Newsflash #6: “Christian Values”? Are you kidding me? Ever heard of the term “atheist”? Ever heard of the term “nihilist”? I’m pretty sure those terms describe me pretty well. Your values mean shit to me.

    Newsflash #7: I care less about games than I do about games culture? This whole thing IS about games culture, asswipe. What do you think influences what kind of things that get put in our video games? Games culture. What do you think the devs and localizers pay attention to when it comes to creating/releasing content for their games? Games culture, that’s what. You don’t talk censorship of video games, ESPECIALLY LOCALIZED ONES, without talking about video game culture. Don’t think throwing in a bullshit red herring argument like that is going to work with me.

    Newsflash #8: I want to speak in a manner that confirm the SJW’s narrative, then that’s my decision. You know why I can do this? I’ve like violent and sex in my games, that’s why. The sheer tenacity in which SJWs have been crusading against our titles over insignificant issues that are easy to ignore often begs the question: Who the fuck invited these assholes to our party?

    If I have no life, I would’ve been buried long ago.

  • Folly Fool

    I consider the most ridiculous aspect of this to be the fact that the UN is looking to specifically ban Japanese erotic games. If they determine that erotic games are unacceptable for public consumption(a preposterous notion) then ban them everywhere. There is absolutely no justification for singling out Japan in a proposal like this.

  • grgspunk

    Then get rid of the fuckers in our own fandom that keep weighing us down.

  • Softclocks

    Still waiting for all that research Mike.

  • grgspunk

    Then consider yourself to be part of the threat that seeks to prevent sexual/violent content from existing in our games.

  • Softclocks

    There are some pretty heavy dark figures on rape in Japan.

    The police/government/whatever won’t actually prosecute rapists and such. The process has to be driven entirely by the victim.

    Even so, I believe there are some pretty definitive research linking the accessibility of porn and low rape rates.

  • Softclocks

    Excellent post.

    These videogames are tangentially linked to sexual harrassment at best. Instead of working to improve things like the lopsided judicial system they’re focusing on minor token issues. Politics, nuthin but politics.

  • Brandon Wolfley

    Good grief. This just looks like a very poorly hidden power grab on the UNs part. Of course the Social Justice Cringers are going to be perfectly willing to play the willing meat shield while the UN once again sticks it nose somewhere it doesn’t belong.

  • Alistair

    Yes and rather pathetic too it called cherry picking 1 thing over the other in this case it’s sexual content Fanservice Ecchi & HENTAI we disapprove of that.

    While extreme violence that havnt got full nudity like COD get the all clear.

    Rather sad & pathetic & stupid as they know dam well The UN & SJWs knows that Sony, Microsoft & Nintendo doesn’t allow HENTAI on they platform consoles.

  • Brandon Wolfley

    Alright, point granted, the UN does do some good here and there. One question though. What business do they have in a private industry like Video Games? No actual women have been hurt. No scientific evidence has been provided that the men AND women who play these games are a credible threat to anyone (in fact most evidence suggests the opposite), so what business does the UN even have here?

  • Softclocks

    Good job Niche-Gamer on covering this!

    Nobody else cares it seems.

  • RobertParker14

    What are you talking about? That isn’t SJW logic at all … you’re setting up a total strawman to justify your own illogical opinion – claiming that you are using the logic of a group which you disagree with (and fundamentally think is illogical). Sorry but that’s so intellectually dishonest it’s just ridiculous. Go and find me a link which backs up your point that this is “sjw logic”.

  • RobertParker14

    My understanding is that it is about breaking down old fashioned gender stereotypes (i.e men have to be macho and heroic, women have to be helpless damsels – just to give a really obvious example) rather than to actually stop people being hurt.
    Men (particularly “manosphere” type men who complain that men have it hard these days) should be grateful for this – it means we don’t have to sacrifice our lives for “women and children first” any more (although we are still free to make the choice to do so, if we want, of course). It means men don’t have to pay for every meal out on a date any more, or hold doors open for women, or get out of the car first and open their door for them. It means men aren’t the only ones who get to die fighting for their country on the front line any more (in the US at least, I’m sure other countries will follow). It means they can be the stay-at-home partner while their girlfriend/wife goes out and earns a living (you will NEVER hear “SJWs”/ feminists criticizing this sort of domestic arrangement – if there is any “shaming” still going on in these situations, it is coming from conservatives who believe a man should work and a woman should stay at home).
    This is something critical, I feel, which anti-feminists don’t get. Breaking down gender barriers is beneficial for men, too, in lots of ways.

  • RobertParker14

    I have answered – but happy to do so again…

    This specifically states “sexual violence against women” because this particular project is about ending sexual violence against women.
    They have other projects, as I have previously provided links to prove, which are about ending sexual violence against men.
    They are two separate issues. There are separate underlying factors. They need different approaches to tackling.
    I hope you understand now, I don’t really see how I can explain it any more simply.

  • RobertParker14

    Resorting to offensive language and terminology because you can’t understand the argument being made against you. Again, isn’t this a tactic that you tend to claim is adopted by “SJWs”? Why are you constantly showing yourself to be hypocritical (coincidentally, another trait that you guys generally consider to be “SJW”)
    I have clearly and politely explained several times now why this particular project is only concerned with sexual violence against women, while the UN has numerous others targeting sexual violence against men.

  • Ajt

    Stop funding these fools. Tell them to come back when they wish to talk about Saudi Arabia or Qatars treatment of women. You know real actual daily brutality and ownership. Actual cultures of violence and rape.

  • grgspunk

  • Guin

    Yeah, that’s pretty weak. That just affirms my opinion that the US has the most boring commercials in the world.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    If the UN is concerned about men as much as women, then why the fuck do women need their own committee?

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    They are not a seperate issue. Sexual violence against everyone needs to be ended and the UN seperating men and women into different categories really isn’t helping their cause.

  • Guin

    Rapelay > Fallout 4, Witcher 3 Bloodborne etc.

  • Guin

    GTA is usually the go to target for Western games. Everything else is just lumped into it in contrast to Japanese games. Even Rapelay lost the posterboy status after a few months.

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    This is a fallacy. The UN has dozens of organizations fighting actual rape in the middle east right now. That doesn’t mean they can’t raise other issues as well. It’s not a zero sum game.

    Really often.

    “The UN has dozens of organizations fighting actual rape in the middle east right now. ”

    How are they doing? Any stats? Anything to go by? Are you going to tell me that they’re doing a great job?

    “That doesn’t mean they can’t raise other issues as well.”

    “It’s not ‘erotic Japanese games’, but particularly games ‘involving violence against women’ ”
    Which is extremely vague.

    “Basically rapelay and snuff simulators.”
    Which have a right to exist. Because adults can seperate reality from fiction.

    Until they can provide evidence these games harm women they can take their ban and shove it up their pedophile harboring ass.

  • registeredanon

    How about we ban the UN already…

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    >What’s wrong with RapeLay and snuff simulators?

    You’re an adult, and not an autistic one I assume. I don’t believe they should all be banned (perhaps rated above the typical “R” or “X” to make sure no impressible 16 year old gets them), but it’s clear what’s wrong with them.

    And if it were the reverse (say the status quo involved games with amputated blind men in factories being milked by machines) you’d be crying about the feminist conspiracy to destroy men. But because the status quo involves sexual violence against females (and not men) you don’t particularly care.

    >Oh, and, if you’d know anything about eroge, you’d know rape is often portrayed.

    This tells me that you know virtually nothing about eroge. I taught myself Japanese playing eroge, and have read ~23 of them. Rape is not portrayed that often (in typical charages and plotges there’s never rape), and even when it is it’s usually the love potion kind. No one wants to see a heroine or love interest raped. You have to seek that kind of game out and it almost always been in some kind of shitty nukige marketed directly at that.

    They definitely exist, but not in mainstream eroge. There’s a nukige market for it.

    >How are they doing? Any stats? Anything to go by?

    Millions of dollars of aid for children, women, regional development. Shelters for women. Healthcare programs, STD programs, crime and drug relief, food programs, hundreds of refugee shelters, and so on.

    Should I go on or are you going to keep riding the uninteresting /pol/ neckbeard circlejerk?

    > the invitation for Sarkesian and Quinn to talk the UN

It’s kind of like how Barack Obama is clearly a secret Kenyan Muslim spy hell-bent on destroying America.

    “but it’s clear what’s wrong with them.”
    Aboslutely nothing. It’s just another for of expression. You have no evidence there is somthing wrong with them.

    “But because the status quo involves sexual violence against females (and not men) you don’t particularly care.”
    My issue lies in that the UN has a special committee to help women and not one to help men. It’s biased.

    No she’s not. This was just /pol/’s attempt to character assassinate her (http://i.imgur.com/pQ7Y1Lw.png) because they disagree with her. They resent that she’s successful.

    Ironically it’s only made her more successful in the form of free advertising.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    >Aboslutely nothing. It’s just another for of expression. You have no evidence there is somthing wrong with them.

    There’s nothing wrong with violence against women? Defending a position by citing “free speech” is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.

    >Aboslute bullshit.

    Not at all. if it were reversed you’d be crying about the feminist conspiracy to destroy men and every thread on /pol/ would be full of screencaps.

    >My issue lies in that the UN has a special committee to help women and not one to help men. It’s biased.

    Women need more help than men. It’s not biased.

    The non-gendered based programs help men too. The food aid and crime and drug relief programs for example.

    Her only crime is expressing an opinion that /pol/ doesn’t like. What happened to free speech?

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    >There you go spouting /pol/ again and again.

    Stop censoring me!!! Waaah!!!

    >For someone that hates buzzwords you sure love to use them in every sentence.

    This post was linked by /pol/, so it’s natural to comment on all of the /pol/ posters here. There’s literally an off-topic nazi comic down here.

    >She’s failed to deliver on her kickstarter goals and changed her video schedule.

    She never failed to deliver on anything. You can say “I don’t like her opinion”, but you can’t make random things up.

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    “violence against women” is MILES different from “erotic Japanese games”.

    The article and title is pure clickbait, and people are eating it up to agenda push.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    “There’s nothing wrong with violence against women? Defending a position
    by citing “free speech” is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re
    saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is
    that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
    It’s not violence. It’s fucking pixels. Grow up.

    “Not at all. if it were reversed you’d be crying about the feminist
    conspiracy to destroy men and every thread on /pol/ would be full of
    I don’t even use /pol/. And women can make every damn game about killing men all they want. I don’t give a damn because it’s their right to do so. Let’s use your own logic against you: Not everyone is a /pol/ boogyeman

    “Women need more help than men. It’s not biased.”
    Haha. Oh wow.

    “This was directly linked on /pol/. Not assuming anything.”
    I browse Nichegamer every day. Nice passive agressiveness.

    “She’s doing nothing remotely wrong.”
    She’s failed to deliver on her kickstarter. She is years late on her videos.

    She can say whatever she wants. Lying to your customers and failing to deliver on a product is not protected under freedom of speech however.

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    >cultural Marxism

  • Immahnoob

  • Chief Presiding Judge

    >It’s not violence. It’s fucking pixels.

    I wasn’t talking about the medium.

    >And women can make every damn game about killing men all they want. I don’t give a damn because it’s their right to do so.

    But if they did it would be highlighted on every site including this one. The double standard is funny to me. The same people crying “free speech!” concerning violence against women would be the first to cry “misandry!” if feminists started making groups to publish games about harming men.

    >Haha. Oh wow.

    Yes. Reality is funny.

    >Nice passive agressiveness.

    The projection.

    >She’s failed to deliver on her kickstarter. She is years late on her videos.

    No she didn’t.

    >She can say whatever she wants.

    Unless it contradicts with your opinion. Then she’s literally the devil!

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    “I wasn’t talking about the medium.”

    That’s what this entire discussion is about.

    “The same people crying “free speech!” concerning violence against women.”

    Video games where you can hurt women are protected under free speech because real women aren’t being hurt. The same goes for men being subjected to violence in games. How fucking detached from reality are you to where you think shooing a person in a game is the same as shooting them in real life?

    “Yes. Reality is funny.”
    Yeah. The joke writes itself.

    “No she didn’t.”
    Yes she did.

    “Unless it contradicts with your opinion. Then she’s literally the devil!”
    She’s a fraud. Deal with it.

  • Immahnoob

    “You’re an adult, and not an autistic one I assume. I don’t believe they should all be banned (perhaps rated above the typical “R” or “X” to make sure no impressible 16 year old gets them), but it’s clear what’s wrong with them.”

    Yeah, I know it’s clear. There’s nothing wrong with them.

    “And if it were the reverse (say the status quo involved games with amputated blind men in factories being milked by machines) you’d be crying about the feminist conspiracy to destroy men. But because the status quo involves sexual violence against females (and not men) you don’t particularly care.”

    No, I actually wouldn’t, I still enjoy dismembering men in games, since they’re mostly the models the game gives me, but I’m content with what I have.

    “and have read ~23 of them. ”

    Woah, dude, look out, 23 eroge is A LOT.

    ‘No one wants to see a heroine or love interest raped. You have to seek that kind of game out and it almost always been in some kind of shitty nukige marketed directly at that.”

    Yet out of the 18k visual novels (that means, total database entries) on VNDB, we have 3k tagged as rape.

    That, taking into consideration that not all games there are tagged at all and that there are 2.1k tags in total, that if I’m not reading it incorrectly, looking through the database, I can see that there are at least a few hundred tags.

    4k of these entries are Nukige too.

    “They definitely exist, but not in mainstream eroge. There’s a nukige market for it.”

    Which is popular.

    “Millions of dollars of aid for children, women, regional development. Shelters for women. Healthcare programs, STD programs, crime and drug relief, food programs, hundreds of refugee shelters, and so on.”

    UN only? Any papers?

    “Should I go on or are you going to keep riding the uninteresting /pol/ neckbeard circlejerk?”

    Sure, with some data to support what you’re saying, otherwise your statements for me are irrelevant.

    “And? If anyone knows anything about being stalked online it’s them.

    Good job giving a relatively tame video maker and a random female dev lots of attention though, /pol/. You’re fighting the good fight! /s”

    Yeah, if you believe every conman in existence, then sure, Anita Sarkesian and Zoe Quinn know a lot about being stalked.

  • Tristan (Chili1)

    Its like the video games cause people to be violence in real life argument all over again. They seem to think that letting people enact fantasies in video games will lead to real world consequences. I thought this stuff was debunked many many times already. When will it end? :/

    Games about harming men huh? Like just about any FPS out there from COD to old school Wolfenstein you mean? Metal Gear Solid where a man is tortured on screen for several minutes? GTA where you torture a man and then execute him? Last I looked games with violence against men sell incredibly well.

    Feminists need to come off this double standard of “no violence against female characters!” Do they think women are so frail and weak of body and mind that they can’t be shown taking violence like men in a fictional context?

    Well I suppose thats how they came up with “cyberviolence” as a thing then. Inability to distinguish between the real and immaterial.

  • Ubrokemygrill?

    Thank you. I was hoping to convince him without having to cite thousands of examples of violence against men. I’m still waiting for the “I was trolling all along” or “I was pretending to be retarded.”

    She is a fraud & a SJWs the same person who wants to censored the Internet for being called you sucked.

    If it was more serious then yes she got a point.

    I could say porn is disgusting & the Internet should be shut down or censored but it not for me to say that.

    & your photo about her tweet sums it up nicely anime AKA not real person but fictional characters it hardly offensive & disgusting that her opinion yes but not to force feed her & they agenda onto others.

    If the Internet shows beheading of women or stoning of persons & there been a few from IS then yes crack down on Internet use of said content.

    But anime and video games are just Art next films depicted of women, books depicted of women oh wait anime as in films right so they into movies too as well as video games,

    Manga books etc etc,

  • Alistair

    Wooh what is wrong with being adult & autistic as you said.

    You saying people that are autistic thinks anything cartoony is alright but sane SJWs sees it in a different light.

    I think it the other way round it not people who are austistic or non-austistic here are insane we are sane it the SJW are insane putting virtual women/girls/men are real person. “you hurt a cartoon character therefore you hurt real life ones as well” that pretty crazy isn’t it.

    & why do the UN want to discuss the issue in the 1st place because lobbyists like antia & other femmists keeps drumming about it.

    I’m glad the so intent to banned Internet & close down YouTube from antia & Zoe UN report got retracted. ?

  • JshBee

    Yeah. One of the more popular eroge RPGs is Monster Girl Chronicles, and that one is pretty much the main character (a male) being raped.

  • JshBee

    Yeah, christ. I was reading through his counter-(for lack of a better word)”argument”, and all of it was presumptions about your character, a logical fallacy, and the assumption that your entire argument was full of double standards. It was pretty ridiculous.

    No, people who get referred to SJWs are self proclaimed. It’s a derogatory word for far left progressive feminist authoritarians. Example: Anita Sarkessian and a lot of the games media. There’s no bogeyman here when the extreme “minority views” are the ones being parroted by the media. The reality is SJWs exist and they are causing a lot of corruption in this industry right now. They are the ones who create echo chambers by silencing people who have “wrongthink” by censoring comments or outright banning people while pushing their politics into every orifice they can. You are delusional if you think they don’t exist because they do and very much a real threat despite their small numbers.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

  • RobertParker14

    That’s an idiotic response. You are not an expert on the underlying causes of sexual violence. You have no expertise behind your statement “they are not a seperate (sic) issue”. The two reports that we are discussing here clearly shows that, in the opinions of the researchers and experts who work on these reports and policies, they clearly ARE separate issues, because they have, as I said before, completely different underlying issues.
    You complain that this behavior “really isn’t helping their cause”, when there is no evidence to show this is the case at all. What evidence do you have that these initiatives are not working? A very short while ago you didn’t even know that the UN had any programs at all to help male victims of sexual violence. Now you expect me to believe you have gone away and carried out an accurate assessment of these programs?
    Sorry, but you are just coming across as a typical whining, uneducated, GG-supporting perma-victim, who believes whatever happens to suit his own narrative.

    Not really, the problem is the context of fanservice vs sex scenes. Usually the sex scenes have a reason behind it, either to illustrate the down to earth nature of the setting where the cast relax through extreme hedonism.

    Anime defiles women… Anyone watching anime knows they aren’t real. Teenagers aren’t that stupid.

    How about those music videos on YouTube that depict the exact same things? Anyone watching it can see real people doing those things… What’s corrupting children is reality, not fantasy. Rape culture exist because society glorifies sex and abuse.

    Anita Sarkeesian is a hypocrite. The fact she uses the words perverts and losers shows how much of a good person she is.

  • Derek

    The problem is during that time there was just a complete drought of JRPGs that wasn’t a panty quest. Letter campaigns were written to encourage Japan to bring non shovelware over.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    having reason? nah they’re mostly about striptease, hooker, etc. Some many of the games had useless sex scenes anw. Like The Order 1886

  • Uh, i dunno, 3 or 5. Unless you’re considering JAV into this, then.. uh.. about more than 100.

  • dsadsada

    If no actual woman is involved, I cannot view something as being violent towards any woman, no more than any game where a man is a victim is violence towards men.

    If the UN wants to ban fiction, they will first need to do a verifiable and repeatable study that shows how fiction depicting violence towards women (or any group for that matter) will result in actual violence towards women to justify the act. Until then, this looks like an excuse to not tackle actual problems involving actual people.

    I don’t remember the UN doing anything after the 2012 Delhi gang rape for example besides lip service. And then they did jack all nothing during the Rwandan Genocide. Still waiting to see if they’ll do anything concrete about the refugee crisis and the general fighting in the Middle East and the rising tensions in the South China Sea (spoiler: they won’t).

    Man kills other male by stander in GTA. So hurting male though extreme violence is nothing new as for diversity there is one in COD in MP You can be a male or female.

  • João Carlos Honório Pedro

    Let me put it in simple terms. This is a non-issue. Claiming it is an issue will only make you look stupid. By even remotely considering this instead of actual problems they are, at the very least, cheapening them. And this is not “the UN”, this is a very specific sub-section.

    Pixels and text are not human beings and do not make *mentally stable* human beings commit crimes and that’s what the best research done so far points to and it would be pretty damn awesome if these people would stop saying this stupid shit without proof to back their claims that “games turn good people into bad people” (and it’s N variations). “THINK OF THE CHILDREN” has turned into a “THINK OF THE WOMEN” and it’s not any less retarded, stupid or idiotic.

    After books, music and TV, we’re doing this shit all over again and it’s people like this that blow non-issues out of proportion that help censorship take root which WE, the sane ones, need to remove after. STOP HELPING THEM BY GIVING CREDENCE TO THEIR STUPIDITY.

    I merely joined in this conversation to point out how idiotic people were being by making lots and lots of comments along the lines of “WHY DOESN’T THE UN TACKLE REAL ISSUES INSTEAD???!!”

    Which were being made many times in this thread, being heavily upvoted and going unchallenged.
    Now despite how clearly correct my point was (I backed it up several times with links which clearly shows that the UN attempts to tackle lots of other issues, and that is has programs specifically targeting violence against men) people still decided to take issue and argue with me – even though all I came to do was make one simple point, and back it up with evidence.
    They did this because they didn’t like the fact that what I had posted went against their narrative.

    But reading that the Femmists SJWs fuckwits have won.

    & yes I know Japanese have already got strict censorship laws that why you don’t see nipples in they games on consoles HENTAI on the other hand has & more.

    It doesn’t get stupidly then this there more to this then video games this vid is before the meeting takes place on 16 of FEB the 1st thing is it’s not suggesting the Video games may be banned.

    They will be banned or wanting to be banned, so what other fucking stupid laws in this.

    The banning of sexual image women in adverts

    Then it went on about woman in bukkas I shit you not.

    Then it went on about the workplace & quotes, men in 1 train apartment & women in the 2nd train apartment but wants more women to be along side men in workplace make sense Not.

    And public officials says something outrageous to women gets punish.

    The word eliminate is being mention too that is not suggested to me the claim is clear.

    Next verbal abuse against women is a No-No the word punish in writing.

    All that before video games being mentioned.

    So let’s recap banning of sexual image of women in adverts.

    Women in bukkas

    The work place, quotes, dismissed public officials

    Verbal abuse against women is offensive.

    *men live on same planet as women offensive

    Okay the last part was a Joke but offensive.

    Christ so much to take it all in everything about this is UNbeliveable days to come other countries get drilled by this so-called clown the UN.

  • grgspunk

    Summary of Question 7:

    CEDAW asks:

    “What measures did your country take to ban the sale of games or cartoons that are offensive and demeaning to women?”

    GOJ answers:

    “Our country has ‘self-regulating’ organizations that review games/films don’t get distributed.”

    “46 of our prefectures have designated a list of books determined to be harmful of our youth and sales of them are regulated.”

    “We have given a list of websites containing child pornography to ISPs to ensure it does not get distributed.”

    “We’ve made arrests for 1828 child porn cases.”

    “We’ve made arrests for 1035 arrests for obscenity-related cases.”

    “We have obscenity laws covering drawn materials. We also amended the law in 2014 to illegalize the possession of child porn.”

    “We are reducing the spread of harmful materials to our youths by educating our people on how to filter them.”

    They might be somewhat dodging the question, but they’re not really outright refusing to ban anything. Otherwise, they would’ve just said they’re not doing anything and that CEDAW should just fuck off.

  • Immahnoob

    Again, if you’re a nitpicking faggot that can’t understand how these papers work, you’d be completely right.

    But since they avoid the question, that means they did not approve of their measures.

    It’s a refusal. It’s that simple.

  • grgspunk

    Then do us faggots who prefer to think about the law like lawyers instead of political activists a favor and explain to me how these papers work.

    Explain to me how the avoidance of a question equates to a refusal to ban content. Explain to me how they couldn’t just be too embarrassed to outright state that they could’ve been too lazy or incompetent to get any bans passed that satisfy CEDAW’s expectations. Explain to me what’s preventing them from simply stating that they refuse to ban cartoons or games instead of beating around the bush.

    Well if you married into money and have a boy friend who has millions you can work with why the hell not? I doubt /pol/ attempted assassination would of made her unsuccessful at all. She already had a large follower base way before she attacked anime and video games.

    That requires the UN to do something which requires resources and money… Now you expect these bureaucrats to put it into good use? Probably but remember that these countries they are gonna attack has the ability to kick them out.

    If it to risk losing lives, the UN will not go in.

    They’re talking about works of art from somebody’s imagination – instead of talking about real people mistreating real people.

    They want to dictate and control what you can draw and write about. What you can and can’t fantasize about. What you think and feel, or imagine. They think they can ban you from expressing yourself. Ban you from sharing a fantasy in a work of fiction.

    Japan needs to stand up to these authoritarian fascist pigs, because so far, no other country seems to be. Certainly not the United States.

    It is not discrimination to draw a picture of something from your imagination. I’d rather live in a world with disgusting perverse anime that I don’t have to look at, than live in a world in which a corrupt power has established itself in a position to literally dictate what men can and can’t do with their imaginations.

    Your imagination is your own. Don’t let anybody take that from you.

    To UN: Please respect another’s culture instead of enforcing your views onto others. If you are pushing your views, you are the same as those extremist religious groups who set laws and views onto others.
    I understand that your American cartoon are for children but please do not equalise our Japanese animes to your American cartoon. Japanese animes are entirely different. Yes, there are few animes which are catered to kids and most of them are catered to teenager and adults.
    Most animes have that worldly theme which reflects reality and things which humans can relate. For example, a story plot involving a woman being a victim of sexual violence and suffered injustice for not being able to send the penetrator to jail. That story gives a sort of “angry emotions” for the viewers and feel sad for injustice faced by the female character in the anime. Those emotions are something which you cannot achieve by watching American cartoon. This is the big difference between our Japanese animes and your American cartoon. Our Japanese animes are closer to reality and gives the right emotion and atmosphere to feel sad for the poor victimised characters in the dark world setting. It’s like watching an adult Korean drama in animated setting. Speaking of Korean drama, there’re lots of drama which portrayed sexual violence and discrimination against women. Just watch all those detective shows. So you are unnecessary picking on Japanese animes and video games. Stop being holier-than-thou. You got other real issues to focus on. There are real problems out there and you pick on Japanese animes and video games?

  • yeap true.. those rules varies on cultures. and it can escalate to the point where other culture can’t take.

    Fuck the UN, not just for this but for leading western Civilization into the entirely wrong direction. Making Saudi Arabia the head of the Human Rights Council and supporting the disastrous economic migration policies in Europe that have led to countless suffering for the European population.

    Fuck the UN.

    lol talk about imperialist. But anyway, the UN should first it’s own track record about men’s rights, which have been less than abysmal.
