You're judging the Japanese using western, actually more American, notions. Until you get to the root of that and start fresh, all your assumptions - even of the westernized trickle down version of the loli culture - are built on a false foundation. » 11/23/14 6:35pm Yesterday 6:35pm

I've seen this mentioned in the Gawker comments and now here. I didn't know this. But...it's actually not relevant...?
