Funny and cheerful manga about Rokudenashiko and her battle with Japanese justice system Interesting in terms of mentioned there collective identity and art perception through a social and cultural differences. 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 again.Rokudenashiko 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 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 again.Rokudenashiko 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 This is a cheerful and curious book It is inspiring in a dark time What is Obscenityis 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 release.I 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 This is a cheerful and curious book It is inspiring in a dark time What is Obscenityis 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 release.I 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 sketches.As a free speech advocate, I approved of Rokudenashiko s struggle, of course We actually don t answer the titular question, 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 arguments.Overall 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 pages.I haven t been reading graphic novels for too long I need to catch up japan and korea, my home country is one of the most sexist countries among the developed world However, many western manga comics anime fans seem to accept the misogyny as cultural difference in this great graphic nonfiction memoir, rokudenashiko shows how repressed japan is in all social situations including sex and law police enforcement without being too serious or skewed. 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 This was a fun quick read Loved the manga parts but I m not sure the other parts articles interviews etc did it for me Overall this didn t feel very cohesive,like a lot of different things thrown together And I didn t feel like I got an answer to the titular question, but maybe that s the point because obscenity is a dumb concept. I don t think I can do this book justice with my review The hypocrisy that the author faced for her artwork is appalling, especially in a nation where there are public celebrations of the penis festivals, if you re not familiar with them Butthan that, this memoir points out that most people are far less comfortable with vulvas than penises, that the female genitals, despite being the literal source of life, are stigmatized Roudenashiko not only discusses her artwork, but points out th I don t think I can do this book justice with my review The hypocrisy that the author faced for her artwork is appalling, especially in a nation where there are public celebrations of the penis festivals, if you re not familiar with them Butthan that, this memoir points out that most people are far less comfortable with vulvas than penises, that the female genitals, despite being the literal source of life, are stigmatized Roudenashiko not only discusses her artwork, but points out that words for the vagina are much less accepted andlikely to be used as derogatory than any equivalent for the male genitalia, and that specifically masculine discomfort with female organs as perfectly normal and non sexualized in the sense of objectification rather than reproduction has aided in women seeing their own bodies as unattractive or dirty.Personally, I don t find any reproductive organ attractive It s not necessarily what I d choose for artwork But can it be art Absolutely Should we be comfortable with it as just another part of the body Yes Because as the author says at the end of the book, your genitals are just as much an important piece of you as your eyes or your ears You shouldn t be made to feel ashamed This book is amazing I loved the illustration style andimportantly 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 readabout her experience I will be recommending this highly The memoir of a Japanese artist who also does comics about the artwork she has done around her vagina that has gotten her jailed for obscenity She is really really smart and talented and hilarious and uses the occasion to educate the world about ridiculous puritanical double standards and Japanese men who create what is essentially a sexist society without repercussion Features hilarious pictures of her unsmiling boring lawyers in dark suits next to her colorful and happily smiling figure She The memoir of a Japanese artist who also does comics about the artwork she has done around her vagina that has gotten her jailed for obscenity She is really really smart and talented and hilarious and uses the occasion to educate the world about ridiculous puritanical double standards and Japanese men who create what is essentially a sexist society without repercussion Features hilarious pictures of her unsmiling boring lawyers in dark suits next to her colorful and happily smiling figure She just ridicules society in the process as she smiles away There s comics here documenting everything that happened, and some of her manko vagina art, including a kayak she made with crowd sourced money in the shape of a vagina Rokudenashiko, is the assumed name of Megumi Igarashi, and means good for nothing, which is what many older Japanese men and maybe some women have thought of her I think she s great, very funny.Here s an article about her and her art which you will not be bored reading ^Kindle ⇰ What Is Obscenity?: The Story of a Good for Nothing Artist and Her Pussy ☚ A graphic memoir of a good for nothing Japanese artist who has been jailed twice for so called acts of obscenity and the distribution of pornographic materials yet continues to champion the art of pussy In a society where one can be censored, pixelated, and punished, Rokudenashiko asks what makes pussy so problematic Rokudenashiko good for nothing girl is a Japanese artist She is known for her series of decorated vulva moulds, or Decoman, a portmanteau of decorated and manko, slang for vagina Distributing a D scan of her genitalia to crowdfunding supporters led to her arrest for alleged violation of Japanese obscenity laws
