note to self don’t think about your otp curled up together in bed, legs and arms all tangled together between blankets to fight off the cold and listening to the sound of rain and each other’s breathing, faces buried in tangles of hair or against the other’s chest/neck and pressing little kisses against their cheek or their shoulder or their neck and mumbling about how lucky they are to have the other because you will get feelings and then cry
apparently there’s an important episode of football on this weekend
the season finale in fact
i talk a lot of shit for a legal adult who listens to one direction
a joke: two queer women walk into a bar. they end up talking all night, exchange numbers, and agree to see each other again. they hang out more and more and eventually end up having a healthy and loving relationship with each other, one with three cats and a dog and frequent trips to theme parks and cuddling while yelling at the social network together. wait, did i say joke? I meant to say: what i want to be represented on popular media but society treats it like a joke, my bad.
spam this in the ereri tag
- Japan’s legal age of consent is 13
- if you base pedophilia’s definition on western culture that is fine it is problematic for u blacklist the tag move da fuck one because u cant stop 90% the fanart coming from japan anyways
this is why i think fandoms are gross. really really gross.
the national age of consent is 13 in japan, yeah. but prefecture laws generally take precedent in japanese matters, and the different prefectures tend to have age of consent laws way above 13, all the way up to 18 (even higher than in the us, at 16.) so. japan’s national age of consent is meaningless here.
and the age of adulthood in japan is generally 20, for the record (that’s when you can vote) and you’re legal to drive at 18 (again, higher than the usa.) consent ages or not, i think that alone speaks volumes about that particular issue.
can we please not try to coopt other countries/cultures laws and internal issues to validate ships? you don’t need to “validate” your ships, guys.
I also feel the need to point out that the age of consent is for sex and sexual acts between two teenagers and such. Japan also has the “Child Welfare Act” and article 34 bullet point six prevents sexual acts with a minor and makes it prosecutable by law. Please do no pick and choose real Japanese laws to apply to a fictional world to validate your ship, thank you. You’re more than welcome to enjoy your ship and find reasons within canon to support your ship, but I find posts like this only serve in perpetuating stereotypes of Japan as a perverted nation, full of love-hotels, realistic sex-dolls and the like which is a real disservice to Japan and its people.
