When I look at the comment section of something like Flandre Scarlet's wiki entry, and see people arguing about whether or not it's ok to call her your "waifu" and/or draw hentai of her. I can't help but wonder if these people are able to distinguish between reality and fantasy.

I mean... you do realize she doesn't exist right?
Ok, so putting to one side the whole "2D" thing, I can make all sorts of arguments such as the character would legally be of age from a real-life perspective by now, the character was written to be of age in the lore, the artist might change their physical age, and how mental age is non-existent in a fan picture. But the fact of the matter is... THIS CHARACTER DOESN'T EXIST IN A REAL LIFE CAPACITY IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM!

Now obviously, the argument there is that if someone is into lolis, then what else might they be into. But to those people I say, "Well since you clearly can't distinguish between fantasy and reality, I'd be worried if YOU were into lolis, but most people know the difference between what's real and what isn't."

Personally, I think people who were kept away from graphic content as children, things such as scary and/or violent movies, were never given the opportunity to learn the difference between fantasy and fiction. After all, there's a lot of things you'll never learn in your adulthood without great difficulty, unless you first learn them as a child. And if you're kept away from things such as violent movies under the assumption that "children can't differentiate from reality and non-reality", then you're never given the chance to learn that extremely valuable skill in the first place. After all, you can't argue that there appears to be a lot of adults that can't differentiate from reality and non-reality.

At least, that's my personal theory as to why extremely conservative people always seem to mix up up what's real and what isn't.

Hopefully though, all of these arguments are akin the whole "Who would win in a fight" arguments, and no one is actually taking them seriously.
Hey, I can hope can't I?
