[Res.] Resolution on the Protection of Minors in Entertainment Media

Esteemed members of the Assembly,

We bring to you all a concern from within the Kingdom of Stoinia concerning entertainment media. That of the sexual exploitation of minors in media. For too long have certain art forms depicted underage children in less than suggestive ways bordering the definitions of pornography. Typically found in forms of art which I have been told is defined as “anime”. We therefore propose that all nations adopt the following Ordinary Resolution on the Protection of Minors in Entertainment Media. Any form of child pornography has no place within our modern societies and cannot be tolerated. We propose the following resolution…

Resolution on the Protection of Minors in Entertainment Media

Section A — Purpose

  1. The World Forum hereby recognises that certain forms of art used in various media are using the sexual depiction of minors as a form of entertainment through forms of images and videos. In spirit, these forms of art are in contradiction with human rights as they propagate the sexual exploitation of minors.

  2. The World Forum hereby calls for the cessation of such entertainment media, prohibit their creation & distribution across each member or non-member nation state.

Section B — Definitions

  1. Defines any depicted individual as underage under the following categories:
    a) A real child.
    b) Any fictional or non-fictional individual appearing to be a child.

  2. The sexual depiction of any individual - as stipulated in Section B. 1 - is defined as the intentional portrayal of actual or simulated explicit sexual acts with said individual or intent of arousal or sexual pleasure within the entertainment consumer through its portrayal.

Section C — Implementation

  1. The World Forums hereby calls for nations for the implementation of national laws by member and non-member nations to prohibit the sexual depiction of minors as stipulation in Section B. 2 as well as their creation and distribution.

  2. The World Forum hereby asks the International Anti-Crime Organization to furthermore investigate potential breaches of laws defined in Section C. 1 within the organization’s member nations and to prosecute responsible individuals accordingly.

The United States of Izaakia fully supports this motion, and would go further as to suggest universal jurisdiction of sexual crimes against minors, where any country can prosecute any person for such crimes regardless of nationality or location of said crime.

Gustave Graves
Ambassador of Izaakia

The Federal Republic of Kliegme fundamentally agrees with the motion. However, we would like to confirm that this motion only, and solely targets media that has problematic description of minors, and not an entire genre.

We would like to disagree with the Izaakian Ambassador’s proposal of Universal Jurisdiction of crime, even if it is only for sexual crimes against minors. Arresting a criminal and punishing them is ultimately up to the soverign entity of the nation the criminal resides in.

Kirill Leonov
Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Kliegme to the World Forum

The Federal Republic of Gianatla cannot agree with this resolution.

Without a doubt, we have to make sure, that sexual exploitation of and violence against anyone, especially the most vulnerable and unassuming members of this society, our children, need to be tackled and that we need to use all means available to us and in line with the rules of law to prevent such things from happening. This obviously includes that every country should feel obliged to cooperate with another to strike down criminal gangs, producing and selling actual sexual depictions of minors.

To put it shortly, your resolution is going way too far and aims at the wrong people.
People creating or consuming fictional artworks of whatever possibly even immoral fetish, kink or sexual preference they might have, whether we are talking about the subject of this resolution or gorey horror, non-consensual sexual acts or sexual depictions of humanised non-human beings, should not be persecuted and marked as undesirable or even criminal.
Instead we should focus on helping people, who are at risk of becoming sexual predators, to not become those, let the people have their freedom to use whatever sexual vent they need in their own bedroom and lastly be consequential when it comes to the persecution of those, who damage peoples’ lives entirely by illegally crossing the border from fantasy to reality and maybe even profiting from this.

Helene Meise
Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Gianatla

Mr Speaker, That is an outrageous, immoral and naive statement by the ambassador of Gianalta. The production and acceptance of these vile and immoral videos or images is dangerous, even in an animated form. This kind of revolting “kink” in its artistic form is an unacceptably risky slippery slope, the normalisation of which can only lead to increased exploitation of minors. Mr speaker I must insist that the Gianaltan ambassador be repudiated for this statement.

Gustave Graves
Ambassador of The United States of Izaakia

Ambassador Graves, I understand your sentiment wholeheartedly, but I will not dismiss or take action against any delegate for adequately stating their nation’s stance on the matter. I therefore call upon the Assembly to discuss the legislation conclusively.

Tudor Segărceanu
Speaker of the Assembly & Ambassador of the Kingdom of Stoinia


Dear colleagues. In a surprising twist of fate, we for once agree with the Izaakian Ambassador. The existence and distribution of the targeted media is the cradle of degeneracy. Not only that, but it heartens this heinous fictional acts to the threat of its consumers becoming the very sexual predators you mentioned. Nay, it perhaps does not go far enough and should perhaps even become a binding resolution to put an end to the cultivation of sexual predators through such media.

Jengo Van Schalwyk
Ambassador to the World Forum of the Republic of Sallodesia

Ambassador Leonov, we confirm that this legislation targets the problematic depiction of minors and not the genre. Although some art forms might be more prone to this legislation due to the normalisation of sexualising minors. This legislation aims to put an end to this exploitation and not artistic genres.

The Termina Commerce Confederacy agrees in principle with the resolution to prevent problematic depictions of minors, but views that the resolution takes things too far and discriminates against individuals with a specific body type and height in addition to criminalizing artists who draw said body type.

In the Confederacy the body type in question are men and women 1.5 meters or shorter who physically resemble the stature of a minor despite being of legal age. Although the height would change depending on the subject country. The average height for Minors in their teenage years in the TCC is 1.5 meters or 5 feet with the average adult height at 5ft 5 inches or 1.65m for women and 5ft 9in or 1.75m for men. Therefore the Confederacy asks that Section B 1b be stricken from the resolution.

We unfortunately have to disagree with your request as this will create a loophole that will allow the exploitation of minors. We therefore propose an alternative solution by changing Section 1 b from" Any fictional or non-fictional individual appearing to be a child." to “Any fictional or non-fictional individual intended to appear as minor.”

Tudor Segărceanu
Speaker of the Assembly & Ambassador of the Kingdom of Stoinia

In what sense will this create a loophole? Has this region reached the point where the people are no longer able to distinguish between fact and fiction?

Perhaps, but we cannot allow the sexual depiction of fictional minors go unnoticed. It goes against the spirit of this legislation and the explicit sexualisation of minors – be they fictional or not – is still something that worries us. We’re afraid that by following your proposal, the body type you mentioned will become a scapegoat for hedonistic exploitation of minors still.

We agree with the Terminan Confederacy’s statement. There are many people, despite being of legal age, have the characteristics of a minor. And from what we could gather from the current proposal, it could discriminate them from being depicted in adult media, despite their consent and them being of legal age.

That being said, we support Stoinia’s proposal of amending Section B. 1b) into “Any fictional or non-fictional individual intended to appear as minor”, as we believe it will be most effective in preventing the circulation of Problematic depictions of minors, without alienating the aforementioned people.
