I just read this disturbing article about a man sentenced for possessing manga images depicting young girls in revealing and suggestive poses and engaging in sexual acts. You know, the regular ecchi and hentai pics. Read the article. It's worth it. Might make you angry though.

What really disturbs and appals me is that the judge bascially made his decision with the argument "it's close enough, let's lock him up".
What. The. Fuck. That's not how the law should work. As the article points out, the man was sentenced for a thought crime, i.e. nobody was harmed but just thinking about it marks him a criminal. By that logic, they should also lock up all people who are into BDSM for assault and battery because omg, they like to spank and whip people for sexual pleasure! *GASP*

Isn't that great? People, we can pack up. I'm pretty sure reading and owning yaoi or any anime or manga is now a crime (because, you know, fan service...) as well as owning compromising fanart. No, scratch that. Just having thoughts is gonna get you thrown into prison.

Welcome to the 21st century, where thinking is discouraged...
