Legality
Hi I’m new sorta. My question though, the photorealistic stuff? Is it enough to get a person booked on child porn or no? There’s a bit more to this, but in terms of a lie detector? What do y’all think would come of the answer?

Honestly I know my limits, boundaries are real to me, it just, I don’t know, I’m bothered by this.

Like I enjoy the content, but I wonder if that translates to more...

Any help?
The answer depends partly on what country you are in. It also depends on whether the depiction is of a real person, and if any actual photo elements of any real individual were used in the creation of the image. But I believe the same could be said for some of the higher quality drawn images.
Us, and it’s stuff on here, and pixiv, I’m not really trying to branch out further than that. So idk, the law seems to be sketchy on the subject in terms of what counts and what doesn’t.
There is risk involved in any depiction of minors in sexual intents. Doesn't matter how crudely drawn or realistically 3d-modelled. Most states in the US do not include (digital nor traditional) art in their child pornography laws though, so you're most likely fine.

Only countries which strictly ban all content involving sexual depictions of minors including art are (correct me if I'm wrong): The U.K., Sweden and Belgium. Anywhere else, it should not have you facing charges. Don't take this as a safety helmet of sorts though, it's still very sketchy to get off to anything implied underage.
I feel like in general this law just kinda sucks, cause unless you’re out peeping at real kids then the law shouldn’t care. I admit it’s a slippery slope.

That's not necessary true, if there's enough evidence that banning photorealistic (or any other kind of virtual child porn for that instance) would be beneficial, then it's more than justified making it illegal. Truth is, we don't know, and no one (as far as I know) is interested in doing research into this, and probably lawmakers wouldn't care anyway.

I think that banning it would be bad, and not just because it doesn't harm anyone directly (and probably not indirectly too), but because it would make this kind of shit to sink even deeper and expose people who search for it to the actual bad things. That's why I think that if loli has either positive or no effect it should not only be legalized, but incentivised, but I could be horribly wrong.

The problem with loli porn is that it scares people, especially those who have children of their own. Paradoxically, as Life_isnt_fair pointed out, it makes sense to have make loli-porn legal (or at least tolerated) if the goal is to protect children.

Currently there really isn't anything stopping a lolicon like myself from seeking out real child porn online other than my own moral judgement. If I get caught the punishment will be the same either way, so why bother right?

Furthermore, we live in an age where every twelve year old girl in the modern world has a smartphone and mostly unsupervised access to social media. Needless to say there is a fuckton more child pornography online than there was just a few years ago. Major companies like Google like to sweep it under the carpet but that is pretty much it. More effort is put into catching people streaming pirated music and movies than catching child predators at the moment.

The people that actually do try to catch child predators need to spend their time doing exactly that. Spending some time tracking down the guy that posted Kanna-lewds on Facebook last Tuesday might be easy work for good media noteriety, but it will not save any lives and will at worst ruin the life of some harmless pervert.

I would be hard pressed to call lolicons the good guys in this fight, but we are something like the natural germs in a persons intestines that keeps the bad germs away. So yeah, l think lolicon should have a separate status from child pornography and be kind-of legal (but not super legal because then it probably wouldn't be as hot anymore)
Tbh I just wish people would stop liquid shit projectile vomiting dozens of the fucking things into the feed every day. They're substandard and horribly animated if they even are that. I've found a COUPLE of really good ones but people need to train a bit before throwing up 200 pictures and clogging everything with crappy quality photorealistic lolis. :/
