Ok so I have wanted a healthy and adult chat on what or who is a Loli and why they qualify as one with people for a while now, if you have thoughts on Shota (aka Shotacon) you are also welcome to post here. Please obey the Site Rules and be respectful even if you do not like Loli's yourself (note, I may be the creator of this Topic but I have no interest in Lolicon as I understand it, however I do not judge those who do since it is all fictional anyway). So I will start this Topic off with my view on Loli Characters, to me they have to meet one of the following: Be under teen-age, also known as 0-12 Be between the ages of 13-17 and act as if they are a child Be a fantasy race that are hundreds of years old and are stuck in a little girl's body That is pretty much it to me as of the time of this post, now I'm curious what you guys think a Loli is based on your understanding of it, you can give examples from Anime, Games, or any other source you wish. Spoiler: My history with Loli confusion When I was traveling the internet and I was sharing the fact I loved Ayane from the Dead or Alive fighting games, I was shocked to see I was being personally attacked or even banned and was being called names I will not repeat. You see Ayane debuted in DOA-1 at the age of 15 (in the Japanese manual) and at 16 by the time the game came to the West, so even though she looked like this: Or by the time I started playing the games at DOA-2, she looked like this: I was apparently a real-world child molester for liking her, or so all the haters were telling me at the time, this is a major part of why I have stopped judging people for their sexual likes, I have been on the receiving end far too much already. I may not share the same views on what a Loli is or have any real interest in the genre, but I am still interested in having this discussion as to what everyone at Undertow thinks qualifies as a Loli and would love to see people share their own history with "borderline" or even full Loli Characters. Also a chat about what countries allow it or don't and why would be interesting and since the views on this Topic will be evolving and across many parts of Pop Culture from Games to Anime and back, I think "Current Events" is the best place I could place it.
