(What Is Obscenity?) [Read] Á Rokudenashiko

In Japanese bookstoresIgarashi s arrest short prison "stay and trial motions are full of hypocrisy shame and absurdity However calling it Kafkaesue would be "and trial motions are full of hypocrisy shame and "ABSURDITY HOWEVER CALLING IT KAFKAESUE WOULD "However calling it Kafkaesue would the point too strongly Igarashi has the moral high ground Women should be able to make art featuring their genitals and to say manko vaginapussy without getting hounded by snippy moral arbiters or by perverts which in both cases are usually groups of older Japanese men But this is not the Japan that currently exists I would give this manga 35 stars but I rounded it up in solidarity with the author s bureaucratic plight The book is aimed at a Japanese audience and reduces its point to the feminist bottom line Women s bodies are their own and they are allowed to express their thoughts about their bodies which while apt should be remedial outside Japan Her complaints about prison were mostly serious She was not allowed to shower for five days and then was kept in sweltering rooms wearing too tight handcuffs on wooden benches awaiting set dates She was not treated well and accused of a ridiculous crime but a few of her objections to prison life came across as upper middle class whining similar to complaints made by Piper Kerman in Orange is the New Black For example Igarashi occasionally undercuts her points by complaining about the lack of moisturizer and uality bento boxes in Japanese prison The chief difference between the complaints made by the two women is that Igarashi shouldn t have been arrested and Piper Kerman is a culpable asshole That said Igarashi explains her motivations and covers the entirety of this bizarre legal event in an amiable and entertaining manner I did not buy Igarashi s feigned nonchalance While her viewpoint is sorely needed in Japan I got the sense that Igarashi Knows Exactly What She knows exactly what she doing She gets right to the centre of controversy in a forthright and principled manner After making a point she tends to then pull back and end with Who knew this was considered obscene I was only saying something very natural LiesShe admits to loving the drama and for doing things for the sake of a story but then pretends she just tripped and stumbled over a taboo that she was completely in the dark about Maybe this pose is necessary in Japan and part of her cute attack Cute is inoffensive The Japanese revere cute instead of sexy because sexy has elements of danger and power that tend to destabilize the group Igarashi addresses this towards the end of the book in a manga strip aimed at children Igarashi personified as Manko chan tries protesting in a 2nd3rd wave feminist manner but she is ignored because her approach lacks cuteness So to appeal to her Japanese audience she decides the message must be made cuter While this is necessary for the home audience personally it felt like Marylin Monroe concluding her birthday song for JFK by asking for gender euality All that to say the text was too cute at times but this is manga who am I kidding Moreover I think the best bits were the hilarious and adorable Manko chan marginalia cartoons This book is amazing I loved the illustration style and importantly the message and portrayal of the artist s experience I was really surprised by the end of the book as well and would love to read about her experience I will be recommending this highly. Ulva moulds or Decoman a portmanteau of decorated and manko slang for vagina Distributing a 3D scan of her genitalia to crowdfunding supporters led to her arrest for alleged violation of Japanese obscenity laws. R from a country that s infamous for their weird hangups and fetishes Hypocritical at bestexcept the book shows how Rokudenashiko had tons of outside support and never served much jail time and now functions as a cultural touchstone for acceptance of female genitalia in all its forms and is funny and entertaining as well and is an all around kickass female genitalia in all its forms and is funny and entertaining as well and is an all around kickass recommended to anyone who has a pussy interacts with pussy and certainly for those who make laws about pussy and man seriously I almost typed female genitalia in that last sentence out of reflex even after having read her account about forcing acceptance of the word pussy in Japan and still here I was of the word pussy in Japan and still here I was away from using it because it might be construed as vulgar Sorry Rokudenashiko for almost having forgotten my lesson so soon after the teaching This is a cheerful and curious book It is inspiring in a dark time What is Obscenity is an autobiographical account of a Japanese artist running afoul of obscenity laws Rokudenashiko was abruptly arrested and jailed for the offense of making available 3d digital scans of her genitalia Public pressure secured her releaseI wrote an account but this is actually several The first section treats the author s jail time which is genuinely disturbing and also funny The second reflects back on how she came to be such an artist Several inserted small sections include an interview with a film director a fantasy retelling of the censorship story and many two page background sketchesAs a free speech advocate I approved of Rokudenashiko s struggle of course We actually don t answer the titular uestion as the reasons for shunning depictions of female genitals aren t ultimately revealed her prosecutors are mostly figures of fun and danger rather than people making cultural argumentsOverall the book was brisk and entertaining issuing a theme I support Unfortunately it repeats itself a great deal partly because it seems to have originally appeared in serial form and because of its treatment of the same ground in two different ways Some parts are weirdly understated like the author s marriage and divorce which take up a handful of frames not even pagesI haven t been reading graphic novels for too long I need to catch up It s very hard to describe this book One side of it s an important and informative account of Japan s censorship law and sexism The other side is utter hilarity I laughed out loud so many times and then I felt bad about it Then a couple of pages later I would break down in giggles againRokudenashiko is a brave cool and super sassy person I ll definitely be rooting for her and supporting her any way possible I ve already bought the book Now I need a couple of small Manko chans to spice up my bookshelves In keeping with Japan s reputation as the fountain of wackiness artist Megumi Igarashi aka Rokudenashiko was arrested for obscenity Her alleged crime was distributing a 3D printer file of her vajay jay as a crowd funding prize Her crowd funding project was a kayak shaped like a vagina The pussy boat and the file were thought to be obscene by authorities Igarashi was tried under case law from the 1940s that successfully banned Lady Chatterley s Lover LCL Though with respect to LCL the case law is now ignored and DH Lawrence s novel is apparently shelved.
