Your attitude to anime and hentai content

I have a friend who despises anime and says it’s against her moral principles- the only reason I can guess is because of something related to this. It’s a shame really because I love anime and know it can be really wonderful.

That'd be pretty idiotic.. like saying books are against your moral principles because of 50 Shades of Grey, or Lolita.  Science Fiction used to have a bad rep too, back in the day.  Theodore Sturgeon, a 50s SF author, once said that 90% of everything is crap.  You have to judge a medium - any medium - by the 10% that isn't.

But, like Beocat said, for people who are looking for a reason to bash anime, hentai is a convenient strawman.

@Beocat Yeah I have to agree on everything you said basically. Not to mention the very ecchi animes also make people look down on anime too.

I don't have any issue with "normal" hentai and I'll admit I have watched a little, albeit a very long time ago. However I would say 95% of it is utterly revolting, at least by my standards.  Sexual abuse and rape are truly disgusting and they seem to be by far the most prevalent theme in hentai. I don't like to kink shame, I think it's fine for people to have their own preferences and all, but getting off on sexual abuse legitimately concerns me. While you could argue it isn't real and nobody is being hurt, the concept of sexual abuse still is very real. Not to say someone who watches that stuff will always become a sexual predator of course, but still it can lead to unhealthy thinking habits. 

Now if a hentai does not involve sexual abuse or anything else particularly firetrucked I am entirely okay with it. Just don't get too absorbed and end up objectifying people and/or anime characters~

Agree with you. Hentai is sometimes "dirty". But sometimes he is sexy. For example, I like it when a girl is wearing elegant underwear and this is shown in the picture.

I wasn't sure if I'd say my opinion in this thread or not since my views on "hentai"  are really strongly against it. However I do understand and can respect if people  who are into it and like that sorts of stuff though I would not agree with them if we spoke about it. I'd also would not like to be around them if they were discussing it as well. Everyone has there right to like something and not like something so if you into this ok good for you but it's really not my cup of tea. I really liked what you said @SanguineTear and @Beocat . Another thought of mine is I'm sorta concerned if we did make a group or thread really discussing this this stuff in full detail plus  showing photos really wouldn't be good for the younger people here in the community. Since I have seen stuff like that on other forums and websites over the years discussing things like this that are for mature older people then end pretty badly and then their website or forum lost members or even got into trouble. True the owners and mods here can do what they want and feel what is best for the forum as well not mind having it. However my advice if you choose to listen or do is I would be very careful as well and really keep watch of the group or thread. Since then it could bring in  really not so good people on here then we would have a lot of issues even drama on the forum. That's my opinion about it anyway and no one needs to do what I say.  I was just sharing some concerns is all. I really would hate for something bad to happen to anyone here or even the forum. So I apologize again if that offends anyone not trying to argue with no one.

I'd like to add one thing to what @HanaApril has said about being cautious. I don't know where the forum server is located (Australia?), but I've heard of cases in the EU where people got sued for distribution of child pornography regarding hentai. Now, I don't know how widespread that particular theme is, but if you decide to include a hentai section you might want to check the legal status and if some hentai is regarded as child pornography under whatever jurisdiction this forum is.

This might be far-fetched and overly cautious but it's just what came to mind when reading the posts here.
