The character I see on screen looks like a cartoon that only resembles a human due to having just barely enough features for my brain to interpret it as a face.
I'm honestly not sure what you're trying to tell me. Elaborate more please.
What a startling revelation. But unless you're going to try and insult every artist and animator by saying no one has ever been able to imply age, demeanor, emotion, or even sexuality through "moving drawings", this is meaningless. If you were to post "loli" porn here, you would get banned. Because it's not "just a drawing". Images carry weight, images have meaning, and the blatant sexualization of characters who are clearly minors is fucking gross whether in a drawing or not.
The point I'm making is both are completely in the realm of fiction in a non real life medium.
Anime and games have moved me to tears.What a startling revelation. But unless you're going to try and insult every artist and animator by saying no one has ever been able to imply age, demeanor, emotion, or even sexuality through "moving drawings", this is meaningless.

Take a moment and think why any form of child porngrophy is illegal. Are you going to tell in court they're just moving pictures?
A fictional character written by an adult, voiced by an adult, drawn by an adult, I'm a setting meant to evoke high school that doesn't actually resemble a high school populated by stylized drawings that don't quite resemble actual human beings are dozens of layers deep into an make-believe abstraction at that point.
I'm of the opinion 2D interpretation should not be illegal yes. Gross sure, but not illegal.
You can't be serious. A 2D realistic figure or close to how humans look drawings are not comparable to stick figures
Uhm, Mila Kunis was 14(!!!). I know, it's off-topic, but this info is very conflicting for any 18+ yo who had a crush on her back then.Again, That 70's Show is a cast full of legal adults who most definitely don't look 16, 17, or however old they're playing. A sexualized image of Donna is not going to evoke the same reaction as some anime schoolgirl positioned to focus on her way-too-high skirt.
If Scarlet Johannson said she was playing a 13 year old in her next movie, nobody would see her as anything other than an adult woman. They're not selling body pillows of anime voice actors.
Yep. That's where adult life starts and you stop having much choice in anything. Society compels you to now interact with your new peers to prepare you for 2 hours of drinking after a 12 hour work day with your coworkers and bosses, and practically abandon any former friends or new friends via choice. You also basically choose your career path in high school so you don't even get to choose your classes or any extracurriculars.
Then here, I'll make this real easy for you.
