Lolicon contributes to actual sexual abuse of children
Debate Rounds (3)
That's enough on its history, lets get to the debate. Critics claim Lolicon contributes to the sexual abuse of children, but there is no definitive evidence that says this is the case. There is how ever evidence that says it has an opposite effect on people. Nations with less strict porn laws tend to have lower sex crime rates. Milton Diamond and Ayako Uchiyama observe a strong correlation between the dramatic rise of pornographic material in Japan from the 1970s onwards and a dramatic decrease in reported sexual violence, including crimes by juveniles and assaults on children under 13. They cite similar findings in Denmark and West Germany. In their summary, they state that the concern that countries with widespread availability of sexually explicit material would suffer increased rates of sexual crimes was not validated and that the reduction of sexual crimes in Japan during that period may have been influenced by a variety of factors they had described in their study.
I rest my case.
The most basic argument for why I affirm is because of what Lolicon causes onto the victims of Sexual Abuse.
First, Children feel helpless against the adults who commit "Dirty" acts on them. The adults are influenced by reading the lolicon, and thus commits the acts on the children. Kareyth Patrick elaborates:
"A press release issued by the University of Chicago Press Journals states that a new study to appear in the Journal of Consumer Research shows that social change is driven when information reaches
easily influenced people who then influence other easily influenced people."
Thus, people can be easily influenced just by reading the lolicon. If people get influenced this leads to badly affecting the children through sexual abuse. If this lasts too long, it can lead to extreme emotional problems for the girls.
Second, Child Sexual Abuse (even by Lolicon) leads to self-harm, and suicide among it's victims. Thus, Child Sexual Abuse is bad, and also does occur.
Spataro J. writes: "Similar to the general population, CSA victims who died as a result of self-harm were predominantly aged in their 30s at time of death. Most had contact with the public mental health system and half were recorded as being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Our data highlight that CSA victims are at increased risk of suicide and accidental fatal drug overdose. CSA is a risk factor that mediates suicide and fatal overdose."
1.) Do you believe just anyone should be allowed to view pornographic material?
2.) What factors do you THINK contributed to the low Sex Abuse cases?
3.) How is allowing pornographic material to be viewed by anyone moral?
1)Corrupt Police/Legal System- I won't elaborate on this seeing as it may prove fatal for my side of this debate.
2)Information and Training- The more people know about sex crimes, the less likely they are to happen. Example, a Sexually Abused Child shows signs of being abused, so if a Teacher or such is trained to identify these signs then the abuser/future abuser will be afraid to sexually abuse a child.
3) Liberal Porn Laws- Research shows nations with less strict porn laws, have lower sex crimes. 
And on the part about Porn and Morals, let me respectfully say, Who give a flying hail stone? Oh, I can hear the rumbles beginning now. I can hear you getting all puffed up w/ your Righteous Indignation and your Superior Sense of Morality, tsk-tsking about how Insensitive, Absurd, and Unrealistic I'm being. SAVE IT! I'm Immune to your Moral Exhibitionism. Deep down inside you know I'm, right. I rest my case.
And "informing the masses" won't do a thing. Pedophiles know about what sex crimes are in specifics, despite still doing it. So that will not work. Since my opponent brought the "Corrupt Police/Legal System" factor up, I demand they elaborate, or else the argument could not be sustained.
And finally, I find this round to be politically unfair, and tricked. My opponent, starting the debate while a Lolicon Fan, obviously knows more about the laws, thus is politically unfair to opposite debater. Also, my opponent should not be bringing personal things into the debate, and should be sticking to rather than stories of their life, an actual argument or piece of evidence.
1) Get treatment
2) Be under constant monitoring until they get treatment
3) Be Executed
Either one is fine with me. Just through I'd say my view on pedo's(I hate them). Anyway, the fact I'm a Quasi-Lolicon Fan does NOT mean I am unfit to represent the Lolicon Genre and its fan community. Hell if anything, it makes me more able to defend it. On to the next issue, Morals. Just because someone thinks its morally wrong to look at Lolicon, doesn't mean it should be illegal. As long as its kept out of children's hands and real children are not used to create Lolicon(which is only created in Japan), then I see nothing wrong with allowing Lolicon to remain legal in the US and become legal in Canada, UK, Australia, ect...
By the way, since when has Politics been fair? I do ask that my opponent start offering up evidence and such instead of complaining about my ability to defend something I support.
TheWheel forfeited this round.
