What, is NAMBLA now franchising?

Now that we're on the topic why would anyone have a seat over there and then talk to Chris Hanson just because he asked nicely? They were dumb but were they really That dumb?

Will there be vending machines?

It's not actual Lolitas, it's the Lolita Style of dressing.

They had already signed the release. If you don't do what he says, you don't get to be on television.

/Seriously, why would you agree to be on his TV show? He's not the cops; he can't make you.
//Never seen his show.

So they're only pretending to lust over pre-pubescent girls.  So that makes everything cool?

We had a Lolita tea party at the Denver county fair last year. It was sad, but very entertaining. I'm ok with this.

No, no, they're lusting over the clothing worn by pre-pubescent girls. Totally different.

You have that wrong. It is not the pedos who are forming the association it is the wanna-be Lolitas themselves.

I read TFA.  It's being set up by a college of fashion design.  So either pedos or misogynistic gay men.

You don't actually need a signed release form to put someone on TV in most states.  Generally, if they're in public and/or know that they're being filmed, you're good to go.

BTW, where can I get male Japanese school uniforms? Those military/Nehru jacket thingys? When I move to the New Hampshire countryside later this year I want to show up at the little town meetings dressed like Dr. No, just to impress upon the locals they should stay away from my farm, if they know what's good for them......

It's all fun and games until she goes psycho in that cute little dress and is standing over you with a bloody knife screaming at you in Japanese.

It's hard to keep these fashion trends and divisions straight.

Pink Lolitas are springing up in Brisbane Australia:

Then there are Goth Lolitas

and if you combine the 2 you get Pink Zombie Lolitas

I'm not clear on what this style has to do with a novel set in the 1950s.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather a pedo go after a 20-year-old that looks 14 than go after a 14-year-old.  Plus, if you're a woman and hit 20 while still looking like a 14-year-old, you're gonna be able to hold that look for a good 20 years. Especially if you're Asian.

Lolita fashion features frills and laces in full dresses with childlike looks. It emerged in the 1980s in response to trends in modern fashion demanding exposed body lines and skin

Really, I thought it was just pedophile Cosplay......didn't know it was Victorian fashion too.

Someone, quick. Get Wes Craven on the phone. And Ultra Man.

So, which would you choose?

1. Japanese Tea Party: Women dressing up and pretending that they're young girls.
2. American Tea Party: Ultra-Right Wing GOP members full of herp-derp.

/hint: it's not number 2.

I can never figure out if these comments are trolling or simply ignorant, so I usually ignore them. But Cosplay and Lolita fashion has nothing to do with pedophila. Nothing. It derives its impulse out of the culture of kawaii, which by definition is asexual. .Think Hello Kitty. The whole topic is a great example of cultural frames of reference and how something entirely innocent in one culture can look quite different in another culture.
