Japanese government blocks a ban on child pornography (18)

1 Name: Unverified Source : 2010-05-19 02:34 ID:mFiKQhey This thread was merged from the former /news/ board. You can view the archive here.

The ruling Democratic Party of Japan has refused to support legislation that would outlaw the possession of child pornography on the grounds that it would infringe individuals' freedom of expression – although there has been a stepped-up police campaign against people that sell sexual images of children.

Twenty people were arrested this week for posting child pornography on a mobile phone web site that was set up by a 17-year-old high school student, while Japan was shocked earlier this year at the arrest of a mother who took indecent images of her infant son and sold them via the internet.

The National Police Agency said it received 4,486 complaints from the public of child pornography on the internet in 2009 and a record 650 people were charged with offences related to child pornography. Campaigners believe that represents the tip of the iceberg.

"We are urging all the political parties here to ban the possession of child pornography in the present session of parliament, but I am not at all optimistic that it will happen," said Keiji Goto, a lawyer and chairman of the Forum for Creating a Society That Does Not Tolerate Child Pornography.

Reminder that the UN shitheels demanding that Japan clamp down on CP were themselves arrested for CP posession.

Besides, lolicon =/= actual CP, and I say this as someone who thinks child molesters should get the death penalty.

The microwave attack that took place at the American Embassy in Cuba between 2016 and 2018 is the work of aliens. The scientific ability is so high that I can only think of it as an alien weapon. It is an attack using microwave or nano weapons.
I am attacked in July 2018 and suffer from aftereffects. I am looking for help I am waiting for the person who understands.
The characteristic of this attack is that it can make the brain sound. When you wake up, the attack begins. Can show hallucinations. You can also attack the whole body.

Well i think lolicon is diffrent of CP simply because the kids aren't real, and don't hurt anyone, until some sick bastard understands the specific genre in the wrong way or already has the disease of being attracted to real children.

While I think banning any type of 2D is silly, I really dislike when weeaboos post crime statistics of Japan to prove that they're better and more honorabre than the west (they love out of context graphs for some reason), even though Japanese cops are well known for covering up crimes, especially those of sexual nature and/or from reports made by women.

Lawmakers call YouTube Kids a ‘wasteland of vapid’ content (7)

1 Name: Unverified Source : 2021-04-07 13:09 ID:x/akU4vS

A House subcommittee is investigating YouTube Kids, saying the Google-owned video service feeds children inappropriate material in “a wasteland of vapid, consumerist content” so it can serve them ads.

The inquiry comes despite Google agreeing to pay $170 million in 2019 to settle allegations that YouTube collected personal data on children without their parents’ consent.

In a letter sent Tuesday to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, the U.S. House Oversight and Reform subcommittee on economic and consumer policy said YouTube does not do enough to protect kids from material that could harm them. Instead it relies on artificial intelligence and creators’ self-regulation to decide what videos make it on to the platform, according to the letter from the committee’s chairman, Illinois Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi.

And despite changes in the wake of the 2019 settlement, the letter notes, YouTube Kids still shows ads to children. But instead of basing it on kids’ online activity, it now targets it based on the videos they are watching.

So what, ((lawmakers)) want to make more laws to justify lining the pockets of government employees? Said lawmakers probably don't care as much about children seeing dumb shit on YouTube so much as they care about their paychecks. Who do you think is paying for these endless "investigations" into crypto currency and in this case YouTube? YOU, the taxpayers are paying for it.

Parents should just not let their kids on the Internet, it would be better for everyone that way, probably.

Someone needs to stop these nig nog government employees.

Yeah, children's youtube is a pretty awful place. I remember going through those CGI children's videos before and there was actual footage of 9/11 and black and white war footage. No joke. The comments were full of kids typing gibberish because they can't even read or they don't even know what they're pressing. The videos are designed to fool parents and then it cuts to weird shit after some time. This was back in 2017 and I assume most of that has been taken care of but stuff probably slips through the cracks all the time.

Human penises are shrinking because of pollution, warns scientist (5)

1 Name: Unverified Source : 2021-03-24 23:00 ID:HOkYSNSv

Penises are shrinking and genitals becoming malformed because of pollution, an environmental scientist has warned in a new book detailing the challenges facing human reproduction.

Dr Shanna Swan writes that humanity is facing an "existential crisis" in fertility rates as a result of phthalates, a chemical used when manufacturing plastics that impacts the hormone-producing endocrine system.

One study published in 2017 found that sperm levels among men in Western countries had dropped by more than 50% over the past four decades after examining 185 studies involving close to 45,000 healthy men.

Dr Swan believes that the rapidly decreasing fertility rate means that most men will be unable to produce viable sperm by 2045.

if it's possible to sustainably provide basic needs like food and housing and medical care for every human, i want that done.
there are a few issues in the personal realm which the state has a legitimate reason to act on (e.g. Fair Housing Act in response to neighborhood segregation in the United States). for everything else, people should look after themselves and those they love.

‘Captain Underpants’ book pulled for ‘passive racism’ (7)

1 Name: Unverified Source : 2021-03-29 13:50 ID:r2lJ+0XC

A graphic novel for children from the wildly popular “Captain Underpants” series is being pulled from library and book store shelves after its publisher said it “perpetuates passive racism.”

The book under scrutiny is 2010′s “The Adventures of Ook and Gluk” by Dav Pilkey, who has apologized, saying it “contains harmful racial stereotypes” and is “wrong and harmful to my Asian readers.”

The book follows about a pair of friends who travel from 500,001 B.C. to 2222, where they meet a martial arts instructor who teaches them kung fu and they learn principles found in Chinese philosophy.

Daily Show, The Colbert Report to name a few are some of the shows that influence people on how they should react to the US government. Comedy, for that matter, has become one of the most efficient tools of getting through to people and telling idiots THEY'RE WRONG. Is it the same in your country?

A Cephalopod Has Passed a Cognitive Test Designed For Human Children (5)

1 Name: Unverified Source : 2021-03-03 13:23 ID:c+1l/nSQ This thread was merged from the former /news/ board. You can view the archive here.

The marshmallow test, or Stanford marshmallow experiment, is pretty straightforward. A child is placed in a room with a marshmallow. They are told if they can manage not to eat the marshmallow for 15 minutes, they'll get a second marshmallow, and be allowed to eat both.

This ability to delay gratification demonstrates cognitive abilities such as future planning, and it was originally conducted to study how human cognition develops; specifically, at what age a human is smart enough to delay gratification if it means a better outcome later.

Because it's so simple, it can be adjusted for animals. Obviously you can't tell an animal they'll get a better reward if they wait, but you can train them to understand that better food is coming if they don't eat the food in front of them straight away.

Some primates can delay gratification, along with dogs, albeit inconsistently. Corvids, too, have passed the marshmallow test.

Last year, cuttlefish also passed a version of the marshmallow test. Scientists showed that common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) can refrain from eating a meal of crab meat in the morning once they have learnt dinner will be something they like much better - shrimp.

The people arent evil and the people cant be blamed for the politics that are imposed on them.
Sorry, chinese are okay, if a little strange to westerners.
As for ethnicity, I dont care, its time we stopped blaming people for the actions of their politicians and rallied round each other. Humans are the most important thing on this planet.
