tsukini kawate, oshiokio!

It has come to my attention that I am a 46 year old pedophilic man. This comes about from having coworkers comment on the calendar in my cube. Yeah, I'm blogging about work. Big taboo, I know. Whatever.

The event took place last weekend, when having a friendly dinner with some coworkers; a female coworker of mine had previously expressed concern about a calendar I have displayed which happens to have pictures of 15-17 year old Japanese girls on it. (Don't take this wrong, but this calendar is not at all pornographic. It's a farking Sailor Moon calendar. I, being a fan of Sailor Moon, love it. Unfortunately, it's the only Sailor Moon calendar that was available this year in lieu of the manga/anime normal Sailor Moon World calendars, which have been proudly hung in my cube (wherever my cube may be) for the past 5 years.) She says that the calendar is strange. Well, maybe not the calendar itself, but me having the calendar up is strange. At the dinner, a completely different coworker (a male this time), asked me about it as well. I calmly explained the above; I may have gotten a little defensive. I really see nothing wrong with the calendar. It's v. v. kawaii. If a different calendar came out with different Sailor Moon stuff on it, I would have that instead of this one. I mean, really.

So I'm really trying to figure out why this calendar is so offensive. Does it make people feel uncomfortable because they think I'm like into little Japanese girls or something? I have other stuff around my cube that lends to the same Japanophile feeling: a Hello Kitty Calendar, a Japanese food calendar (featuring sushi!), some paper fans, some Power Puff Girls hanging from the walls, etc., amongst work-related stuff. I mean, I want my cube to feel like home, you know?

What do you people think?

since one cannot find any pictures of this calendar online, here is this month's action.


you're a farking pedophile. it's disgisting.
if only they knew.....

i think it's funny you like 'sailor moon'. my cousin used to like them when she was nine!

but i don't think it is all that different from people who have garfield dolls on their screens.

The thing that makes it weird is that it's real little girls pretending to be cartoon characters. It's like a calendar of little girls dressed up as Beauty & the Beast. But you go with your bad self.
