In recent hours, a new censorship case was reported in an emerging social network, it is the MINDS platform, an alternative social networking website whose interface imitates Twitter's and that is proud to be in favor of freedom of expression . However, despite offering greater freedom to users to fully express themselves, the first cases of prohibition with respect to the content and again, the 'Lolis' are protagonists of this controversy.
The theme began when users began to report that their accounts were suspended because they published Illustrations of Lolis (it was not clarified if they were erotic images), accusing the owners of these profiles to have uploaded content with pedophilia.
Given these claims, the Executive Director of Minds, Bill Ottman, clarified that although, the content for adults is allowed within the platform, the material that involves any sexualization of minors (including illustrations of Lolis), it is reasonable reason for The indefinite suspension of the network, since it would be illegal to allow it according to the laws of the United States. Likewise, he reported that they can not risk going against the guidelines that affect any platform emerged on US soil, as this could generate consequences against Minds.
However, Ottman's statements were poorly taken by users, who claim that nothing illegal has been incurred and that only users are arbitrarily censored in a network that ironically, has as the highest standard to total freedom expression. Although there were also users who were in favor of this determination, mentioning that "Minds is a network to express free and healthily, not to publish pedophilia, if you can not understand this, you should create your own social network."
Previously, the term 'Loli' has already been banned in great relevance forums, illustration sites and hentai content pages. However, this only refers to that material that shows a character of infantile appearance being explicitly sexualized.
