Goodbye Kickstarter

I think it's OK to get squeamish about the implication of sex with underage girls.

I'd only add that it's not OK to decide that a particular aesthetic classifies as "underage" and to villify the men who prefer those and to insult the women who look like those. I have a friend who's nearly 40 who looked like she was about 15 or 16 throughout most of her 20s and 30s. This is not rare. There are many women in my locality who do not visibly age past puberty, and who have boyish figures.

It is not the look that's bad. It's exploiting a position of power to oppress and take advantage of the weak. This is true regardless of external appearances. Nanoha may look like she's 16, but her ability to obliterate planets and her rather alarming lack of compunction about using that power to assert her authority makes her fair game IMO.
