Robert, baby, what is 4chan? Is it some creepy pedophile thing?
Possibly 4chan and definitely some of the other chans are known to sometimes have legal jailbait posts and even illegal child porn posts some of the time.
A friend of mine linked me to one of the particularly notorious chans once, and there were a bunch of pics of girls all the way to Lolitas to teenagers there. A lot of the girls are in very suggestive poses like with their legs spread very wide; however, they always had just enough clothing on. I mean a 10-12 year old girl wearing short shorts and doing a total split with her legs spread wide. There’s no actual nudity, but it’s very suggestive. I guess this sort of thing is legal, but it was definitely straddling the line. It was more weird, strange and funky than erotic. I was mostly thinking, “This is a bunch of bull!” and “Why would anyone want to look at that?”
The posts were split between channers who were posting this silliness and others who were opposed to it and were disturbed by the pics. Some of those disturbed by it were attacking the guys posting the stuff, calling them creepers, pedos and Chesters. A lot of the guys posting the stuff admitted that they had some sort of pedophilic or Lolita interest. Some of the girls were older and that looked ok, but a lot of them were Lolitas or even a bit younger and that was just freaky and disturbing. I read a few pages of it, and then I said screw this and left.
Supposedly people post real child porn on the chans sometimes. Some of my friends are big chan readers, and they say now and then someone posts illegal stuff. They usually get reported right away, and the stuff tends to get removed. Thing is, if you hang out on the chans, you are probably going to see some disturbing legal quasi-pedo stuff all the way to real illegal child porn. That’s a good reason to stay away from some of the more notorious chans right there. Who wants to see that stuff?
There are other chans that as far as I can tell never post anything like that. I get linked there sometimes, so I go to the sites. Even these chans are wild, wide open places full of all kinds of mostly young male and crazy posters. The whole idea is to post totally provocative things to rouse people up. A lot of it is very funny, but some is just disturbing.
For instance, you will be reading along and all of a sudden there is gay hardcore pornography of some guy sucking off another guy. Who wants to see that? Did I ask to see that? Or there might be some gore pic of something really horrible like someone getting his head blown off. And often racist posts, especially against Black people, will spring up out of nowhere. This results in a whole bunch of other really ugly anti-Black posts and some people jumping in to defend the Blacks. Some of the anti-Black stuff is funny, but most of it is just crude, rude and vicious. It’s not uncommon to see nasty anti-Semitism either.
On the more legit chans, you will never see any quasi-legal quasi-pedo stuff and of course there will not be any illegal child porn. Instead there will be quite a few pics of hot young chicks and some legal straight pornography. Even that is a bit weird as you will be reading along, and all of a sudden you get hit by hardcore porn out of nowhere.
Personally, I find the whole chan experience even on the legit chans to be quite disturbing. A lot of the posters are very mean and cruel to each other, and it’s a pretty adolescent atmosphere to say the least.
The whole idea of the chans is “anything goes.”
