We have been made aware of the fact that Yesmap's (now disabled) Matrix server was entered under false pretenses by the hostile editor of a supposed "MAP" website some months ago. While some screenshots/logs have been shared (including those of members suffering from mental-health and legal problems), no personally identifying information has been leaked. We are currently compiling a dossier of malicious and criminal activity we believe the publishers of this website are responsible for, and will soon publish and promote it.

The term Lolicon originates from Japanese slang, as a contraction of the wasei-eigo term Lolita complex and refers to drawn, eroticised representations of mainly preteen girls. There exists an unusual stalemate over the nature of such depictions, with many western commentators and artists claiming they bare no relation to pedophilia. Those arguments have had some success within western online culture - for example, Wikipedia has many editors who identify as otakus and has detailed articles on Lolicon.

The line between 2D or fictional characters (nijikon) and attraction to real girls is less apparent in Japanese culture, particularly in the public image outside of otaku subcultures, with the word lolicon sometimes used colloquially for attraction to young or preteen girls in general. While it could be said these attempts at normalization as a 2D exclusive attraction have been more successful within Japanese culture (as compared to the Anglosphere, where they are ridiculed by the mainstream and most MAPs), it is more likely in part due to the somewhat less taboo nature and different cultural views of the subject in general.

A term sometimes used among MAPs to refer to western lolicons taking a hardline stance on the divide between 2D characters and attraction to real girls (for example claims that "lolicon has absolutely nothing to do with pedophilia"), is ironic lolicon, particularly if coupled with ostensible distancing from and hatred of pedophiles.
