the law vs the missuse or grey areas of it
before I start this conversation I just want to say... I have been arguing both sides to this in my head and I see no reasonable answer for ether side. not that any law has been broken but I started this as a mental exercise but it's kinda derailed into morality/legal question that as is as follows.

the following statements a true

1. under the law a all sexual depictions of minors are illegal
2. sasami from tenchi muyp is a depiction of minor this must be illegal.
3. sasami from tenchi muyo is 500 years old thus is not a minor but still is a depiction of a minor.
4. thus ????.... lol.... thats where I break down... literally the law kinda breaks down from their in my opinion. what do you guys think.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

Does this law exist or is being proposed by a political force with lawmaking power, in a real democratic country outside of your head?



No. Then the debate is useless.

Law is a confusing, maze-like realm of lawyer speak and upside-down backwards facing double-talk in triplicate.

Minor.
noun
1.
a person under the age of full legal responsibility.
Depending on where you are, a 'minor' can vary greatly in years and therefore depiction range as a minor.

Now, one could argue that it is a violation of the law for this character to be depicted in a sexual manner, assuming they are depicted straight as a minor (of say under approx. 14-15 years of age), consensual or otherwise (depending on the specific context of the depiction).
Assuming the character is a minor of above that range, one has a bit more wiggle-room in regards to the idea of consent in the depiction, as legal interpretation can be altered to represent the needs and context of the case at hand.

If the company releasing the depictions stipulated that the 'minor' in question is not a minor, but rather of advanced age, it gets simpler. It is perfectly legal, as a minor is gauged by age, not physical appearance. The producers however have to be very careful to make it known that the supposed 'minor' is not at all a minor, they can do that easy enough with markings which denote age above the 'minor' age, or by making it well known that the age and physical depiction are deceptive. They just have to make it very obvious to be safe.

Of course that is just assuming explicitly sexual depictions.
If this supposed 'minor' was not being sexualised, than it should be fine legally speaking if they are so far as butt naked and anatomically correct, so long as it is not sexual.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I'm in America, I've seen a Johnson & Johnson commercial that showed a naked 6 or 7 year old girl in the bath. I'd say if such a law exists, it is illegal to depict minors in a sexual manner.

Out of curiosity are you going to address that to anybody or just randomly say it to no one in particular?
Or even expand on the statement.
