okay, it’s honestly hilarious.
Ereri is not pedophilia. Ereri is not shotacon.
Pedophilia is referring to the attraction to prepubescents 11 and younger.
Shotacon is referring to ero featuring prebuscents 11 and younger.
Eren is 15. Eren is not 11. Eren is not younger than 11. Eren is not a shota nor is he the victim of pedophilia.
Ephebophilia is the preference of pubescents ages 15 to 19 and it is actually not as problematic as you would think to be ephebophilic because most men/women/whathaveyou because people that age already show adult traits therefore many, no matter what their preferences, can find attractive traits in people in this age group. And actually not all people who date those in this age group are even ephebophilic because of this.
In fact. Ephebophilia is not listed as a mental disorder. Or even as a paraphilia because it’s not fucking uncommon.
Also did you know that with parent consent minors age 15-17 are allowed to marry in America. Even if the age of consent is 18. Which means legally a relationship can hold up with a 15 year old. I’m not saying I support all marriages between 15 year olds, I’m saying that it’s actually perfectly legal.
If you want to get all legal about this then no one five years older than Eren should be attracted to him without being an ephebophile. If you are drawing porn of him and you are 20 or older you are participating in child pornography. Even if you are shipping him with someone his age. You are “romanticizing” child pornography.
Are you over the age of 20 and find Eren to be attractive? Bam. Ephebophile. What about any of the other children in SNK? Are you five years older than them? If the answer is yes, bam. The logic you’re using? Ephebophile.
15 year olds aren’t allowed in the military. SNK? 15 year olds in the military. 15 year olds leading small groups of other 15-17 year olds into battle. 15 year olds shouldn’t even be having sex but apparently it’s a okay as long as it isn’t with Levi.
Screw the fact that Ymir is even older than Levi right? Because Ymir/Christa is just fine. Despite Christa being… Oh. What was she again? That’s right. FIFTEEN. But that’s okay right?
And for the final time Levi is not 37. Levi is not 35. Levi is not 30. We do not know what age Levi is. You people made his age up. Maybe not you specifically— but it was made up. Oh wait. They’re all made up? Wow.
