The United Nations have been trying to ban anime for some years now. Especially since
But the question of a lot of
Why are the United Nations going out of their way to ban
It’s almost as if the United Nations is trying to say “you’re only allowed to see the world this way, and we don’t like the way you portray it in
Considering the UN is based in New York, that’s not surprising since this is a typical “western” thing to do.
What IS the United Nations anyway?
The UN (United Nations) was founded after world war 2. The effects of that war was devastating for reasons I don’t need to mention.
The UN was founded because of how much damage it caused, with the intent to prevent any wars breaking out in the future.
The UN’S principles:
- Maintain international peace and security.
- Develop friendly relationships in different nations.
- Solve economical, cultural, social and humanitarian problems.
- Unite countries to meet the UN’S purpose and goals.
Sounds happy and cheerful, eh?
The question now becomes:
anime affecting the UN’S goals and purposes?
Answer: It’s not.
But the UN is still so intent in trying to ban
Let’s talk about why.
This Is Why The UN’S Fight To Ban
Anime Is Nonsense:
Anime Loli’s are fictional characters
I bring this up because THIS is one of the reasons the UN is trying to ban
They believe, in their own words:
“It violates human rights of women and children.” – United Nations
This is FALSE for a lot of reasons:
- A LOT of
anime, characters and media are created by women in Japan. Animecharacters are fictional, no different to cartoons like Simpsons.
- Kids in
animearen’t real, so it’s impossible for it to “violet human rights of children”.
- And vice versa for female
There are no “human rights” being violated so it’s a baseless accusation
In the real world – if a child, kid or teenager is taken advantage of, whether sexually or otherwise, their human rights are obviously being violated.
Anyone with common sense knows this type of thing is WRONG and it doesn’t take an argument to prove it.
It’s sickening and this type of thing shouldn’t be allowed.
This applies to children who are exploited in the workplace as well (illegally). Or any other variation.
And this carries over to women in the real world.
If a woman (just like a man) is taken advantage of and their “rights” and “free will” is stripped away, or they’re abused and made to do things that aren’t right, their human rights are obviously being violated.
This goes for rape, sexual assault, and whatever buzzword you wanna use.
So that leads to a question for the UN:
How can their human rights be violated if they’re not human to begin with?

Anime doesn’t hinder the UN’S goals for world peace and development
You can explore themes like:
- Overcoming depression.
- Dealing with the loss of a parent.
- Rising above criticism and ignoring the haters.
- Coming from nothing and making something of yourself.
- Succeeding in college/university.
- Dealing with a breakup and heartache in a relationship.
And SO many more themes not worth digging into here.
It’s up to the viewer to choose what they consider appropriate for them or not.
The problem starts when we start trying to “push” our personal agenda on creators, just because it rubs us the wrong way.
Anime has done nothing to hinder the progress of the UN’S goals
The UN’S goals are to maintain peace, security, support economical, cultural, and social issues across the world. And basically – to bring good to humanity worldwide.
By the United Nations logic – films, video
The faulty mistakes people make when judging
→ They judge the fictional world based on “real world” laws and principles
One of the common arguments people like the UN and anyone outside the
Or they complain about fan service, and how some women aren’t drawn “realistically”.
The problem with this flawed logic is
That’s why it’s an “animated” version of real life. With wacky designs, concepts, unrealistic themes and sometimes – out of this world character designs.
You can’t use human logic and real world principles to judge
That’s faulty logic and reasoning. And it’s pretty f*cking self centred. Almost as if you’re saying “the world revolves around ME” which is arrogant and selfish.
→ They judge
anime based on how they judge themselves
Not too long ago in 2019 Nejire Hado, one of the characters in
The reason? The
This is a classic example of judging an art form based on how you judge yourself, and your own insecurities.
This is never an issue when an
It’s a faulty mentality that tries to compare the real world with fiction, while painting them as the same because they can’t deal with the way it makes them feel about themselves.
The United Nations should focus on REAL problems and leave

Things that are actually affecting the world we live in.
Let’s put this sh*t to bed and let it sleep for good.
