As I understand it, while Really 700 Years Old
is not a defence, common sense does need to be applied (hence why P5 are making these decisions, because they're known to be good in that area) and any possible Alternate Character Interpretation
used to damn a work. After all, when Fetish Fuel
was removed from the site, we had to be reasonable when considering fetishes - since there exists a fetish for literally anything at all (there are users of this site who have or have had attractions to non-living objects), a line had to be drawn before the entire site was abolished on that basis.
It's the "if you hear hoof beats, think horse not zebra" thing applied to looking at images and surmising things like the character's age from the context. From the sounds of things in this thread, in this case it seems completely clear that the character is not underage, and I'm getting the impression that some people are going out of their way to allow for the possibility of the character being interpreted as underage, missing the wood for the trees in the process.
