In an obscenity first, a U.S. comic book collector has pleaded guilty to importing and possessing Japanese manga books depicting illustrations of child sex abuse and bestiality.
Christopher Handley, described by his lawyer as a “prolific collector” of manga, pleaded guilty last week to mailing obscene matter, and to “possession of obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children.” Three other counts were dropped in a plea deal with prosecutors.
Those are pictures, for Chrissake. I wonder what they look like? There’s all kinds manga porn on the Internet with young-looking girls and girls having sex with creatures like octopi and whatnot. I’ve seen tons of that stuff, though it is not my thing.
I always thought that was legal. What’s next? Pedo stories? There are pedo stories all over the Internet. They’ve been legal up til now? How long will that last? I have no interest in this stuff, but this is going too far.
By the way, this stuff is everywhere in Japan. It’s not like like there’s a pedophilia epidemic there.
If you want to see what Japanese “lolicon” manga looks like, click here (Adults only! I guess…But I’m not even sure if it’s legal for them either. I just looked at it and I’m not worried about cops coming over here.). I’m not into this stuff, and I find it disturbing and upsetting. There is something about it that is just wrong. But you can see for yourself. I don’t know if it’s legal or not. It’s just drawings anyway.
