>>290640>There's nothing sophisticated about watching hentai when it's more popular than ever
I have no delusions about its increasing popularity among normalfags. I've also written some posts about that in other threads. But fundamentally, hentai is by itself only a medium, and even though>the appreciation for thicc 2d characters is still a much greater sophistication than 3dpd, and is therefore still admirable (>>290629),
hentai may still portray purely normalfag elements. Naturally, normalfags will make normalfag hentai, and will mostly enjoy normalfag hentai. Notice, for example, how normalfags always say shit like, "$popular_vn would be good [or better] if only it didn't have all those loli scenes", and anybody who says otherwise is immediately excluded and branded a pedo. The Japanese, though still mostly normalfags, do tend to be a bit more cultured in this regard than most ignorant westerners.
But it's more complicated than just normalfag v. non-normalfag. "Normalfag" and similar categories are just ideal types that don't actualize with complete purity in empirical reality but only in theoretical thinking (read Max Weber's article "Objectivity in Social Science and Social Policy" to not reason like most crabs who only think in purely conceptual categories devoid of any empirical content, as is evidenced by the wizardry and blackpill thread). Within us are also normalfag drives and values mixed in to different degrees, they just don't happen to be our ruling drives, as is the case with people that can be correctly referred to as normalfags. And in them are also present to different extents and gradations drives that we'd refer to as "anti-normalfag", or even "wizardly". So it's inevitable that some normalfags may still be attracted to non-normalfag hentai beyond just normalfag hentai, and there's nothing surprising about that.
But my point was never really about normalfags. I can recognize that a few of them may be capable of appreciating lolicon, even if they have to hide it from others. I'm also not a contrarian at all. It doesn't inherently bother me in the least that normalfags like something I love, except when they hijack it and infect it with their normalfaggotry,Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
