Controversial Johnny's Entertainment blogger being investigated

The extremely popular Johnny's Entertainment blogger Kamichan, whose site boasts almost 5 million hits, has gone on an indefinite hiatus due to a storm of criticism that had arisen in recent weeks. 

Kamichan was scheduled to publish a book about the Johnny Entertainment fandom, specifically concerning his treatment as a man in a predominantly female fandom. However, criticism of his alleged support of pedophilia arose, and it is now being reported that PayPal will no longer allow him to have an account.

In addition, WebGains, owner of YesAsia, an affiliate of Kamichan, received an enormous amount of complaints about his behavior and now claim to be investigating him through a form letter. PlayAsia has also decided to remove Kamichan from their affiliation program, with the link on his site being disabled and only linking to the PlayAsia homepage.

A release date for the book has yet to be announced.

No,what I meant is I have no sympathy to people who feels the way pedo feels toward children.
Its not something punishable by law, but its not right. Saying that "its not a crime" so lightly, to me, is like taking how sick their minds are so lightly. You cant punish their thoughts, but I sure am not going to feel any kind of sympathy for them.

But it still wouldn't be a crime.

If I fantasize about robbing a bank, I won't be committing a crime. Not until I go out with a gun and actually attempt to rob that actual bank.

I'm studying to work with criminals (among which child sex offenders) with mental issues. Believe me, I would never ever take what goes on in their minds lightly at all.

It's the same with people suffering from Borderline personality disorder. They can be the most terrible people to be around. They can be manipulative, they can be pathological liars, terribly irresponsible, etc. A lot of them have the stereotypical personality most people would absolutely hate with a passion. But they didn't ask for this disorder either. That's where my sympathy comes from.

Having sympathy for someone doesn't mean you forgive them for their actions, or think lightly of the disturbing and terrible things they think or do. For me it means trying to understand how their mind works and to come up with a way to prevent their problematic behaviour from happening (again), or to minimise it within society. This, instead of simply judging and blaming and chasing them out public view.

I can't tell you to feel sympathy when you don't. It's your right to feel whatever you feel and you can't help how you feel. I'm just trying to make you understand what sympathy means for me, in this case.
