Facebook Is Warning Users Who Try To Search ‘Loli’ On Its Platform

Published on July 3rd, 2022

Loli is a word often used by anime fans. It refers to small (underage) girls having a child like appearance, and more often than that Loli’s are of adult age (thousands of years old) despite having a childlike looks. Recently, Facebook has implemented a new update where it warns users when they try to search ‘loli’ on its platform.

Facebook warns about loli

When you first search ‘loli’, Facebook gives you a warning that the following term is associated with child sexual abuse, and seeing child sexual abuse images can lead to imprisonment and other severe consequences.

Facebook then gives you two options, either to report an image which is associated with ‘loli’ term or ‘Get help and support‘. When you click on the second option, another window pops up which advises people to get help from an organization in order to fight these feelings and urges. Here are the recommendations given by Facebook:

If you’re concerned by your own sexual thoughts about children and young people, or by someone else’s behaviour (such as a friend or family member), there are organizations that can provide support for people who need help coping with these feelings and urges. Remember, it can be criminal to produce, possess or share photos and videos of children being sexually abused and exploited. It is also against Facebook’s Terms of Service and Community Standards. You can also learn how to report images of child exploitation on Facebook. If you’re going through a difficult time, contact a helpline if you or a friend need support. You can visit our emotional health hub or find a helpline.

  1. The term, “loli,” wasn’t and isn’t sexual. Like the article said, it was always referring to small anime girls. It’s a category that isn’t unlike tsundere, kuudere, and yandere.

    It’s funny how Facebook puts the message, “If you’re concerned by your own sexual thoughts about children and young people, or by someone else’s behaviour (such as a friend or family member), there are organizations that can provide support for people who need help coping with these feelings and urges.”
    Therapists and psychologists actually don’t mind it when people consume R-18 loli content. Want proof?

    Watch the YouTube video below featuring psychologist Dr. David Ley as he talks about loli:

    Here is a video about Shindo L briefly talking about it:

  2. I think it’s good bc there be some sick ppl but everything I say loli I’m usually talking bout the anime I’m watching in which there is a old ass person on there tht looks like a child nothing sex wise if u thinking set wise u sick

  3. Is not a sexual term tho, but true there’s a lot of creepy lolicons(people who are into lolis) out there but imo implementing this kind of thing wont be any help. Also the description is hilarious.

  4. When otakus fight normies…

    The fight between the otakus term vs idiocy legacy will continue to the end of the time

  5. really? how many times must we go through this? I don’t even think that kind of content can be found under the term in the first place, at least not of actual children, and for it to be of fictional ones, you would have to use the actual term anyway

  6. ITS A DRAWING
    LEAVE THE PEOPLE ALONE AND GET HELP ZUCKERNOOB
    YOU ARE THE DERANGED ONE
    DO YOU BAN PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR GTA? GTA MAKES YOU KILL PEOPLE. ITS ILLEGAL AND DANGEROUS TO KILL PEOPLE? BAN GTA ALSO
    LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE SERIOUSLY

  7. Another site I never used for my loli hentai bans it, meh. Nothing will stop me from enjoying it, not the law or public opinion.

  8. I honestly fail to see how anyone can be against this.

    I support freedom of artistic expression as much as the next person, but there are limits. It’s about time Japan started to adhere to American standards.

    These could be used to groom children, not to mention they normalise the thought that these kinds of acts are perfectly acceptable.

    They have absolutely no place in the world; and there should be stricter penalities for people who draw and look at these.

    More should also be done about banning self-gratification works containing rape, bestiality and incest as well.

    1. Lmao you have to trolling for a comment like that, like no way you think that people should go into prison for drawing loli’s.

      Basically victimless crime, while we’re at it let’s put people into prison who kill off their fictional anime character for murder.
