What is the definition of a 'loli'?
« on: March 25, 2011, 03:15:20 PM »
So I've noticed that a lot of anime fans like to refer to young girls as 'lolis'. Any young girls. Even the ones who aren't sexualized in the slightest. I thought a 'loli' was meant to be a precocious, sexually alluring prepubescent girl, but why does everyone insist that all little girls in anime or anime-styled games are lolis even if they don't meet these requirements? Did the definition change when I wasn't looking? Are they trolling? Are they just idiots who've no idea what they're talking about? What?

Definitions are fluid things. On the other hand, your definition is probably closer to correct.

As far as I'm concerned, "loli" is not strictly limited to Anime to begin with.

Prepubescent girls in general.

It's not strictly limited to anime, but so many people think it is.

I don't think the girl herself has to be actively expressing herself as "sexually alluring" to be called a "loli."

I'm just basing this judgement off the fact that in Japan the pedophile would be called a "lolicon" either way, even if the girl was normal.


I know I keep using quote marks but it's because as Snack said, these terms have loose definitions to begin with.
