At the World Congress III Against Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents on November 24, 2008, an international agreement was reached that all participating countries would undertake to criminalize the possession of child pornography including cartoons (animation, comics, 3DCG, etc.). Many countries prohibit the production and sale of child pornography to protect children from the exploitation and violence considered inherent in non-consensual acts in which, given the adult-child power relation, children inevitably engage as soon as any adult is involved in their sexual activities. This agreement extends the watch on child pornography and makes illegal even the possession of child pornography in cartoon form. They argue that, regardless of whether real children are involved or not, child pornography affects the ways people view children and its prevalence can lead to overtly and excessively sexualized images of children. That is, not only do the children involved suffer physical and psychological harm through non-consensual acts, but also the representation of children in pornography, though indirectly, increases the harm inflicted on real children.

Kazuko Tanaka, CGS Director

The ICU Center for Gender Studies (CGS) is proud to present the inaugural issue of its journal, Gender and Sexuality. The successful completion of this publication, in only the second year since CGS was established in April 2004, could not have been achieved without the continuing support and encouragement we received from many people. On behalf of the Center, I would like to thank all those who have supported CGS in its activities so far.
