That's literally what a culture war is. This one isn't the first, nor the last.

I don't believe it only boils down to SJW's and anti-SJW's. There's a wider range of conflicting ideals fighting against each other right now. Whether it be nationalists vs globalists, capitalists vs socialists, conservatives vs liberals, right vs left, racial identitarians vs civic nationalists, middle class vs working class, gun owners vs gun law reformists, whatever. I didn't name two groups because there are a plethora of factions fighting against each other in different levels of society.

okay. since you mentioned it.

What group is using SJW and what group is using anti-SJW and for what purpose? You don't have to say which side you are in. 

I want you to answer that because the way you mentioned "we are in a culture war, whether you want to accept that fact or not" sounds alarmist to me. And if we are always in one, why are you alarmed???

SJW is a pretty popular term now. Damn near everyone uses it. Not as many people us anti-SJW and I couldn't tell you which group, if any, use it.

I don't find it alarmist when it's demonstrably true. We had a literal meme president win an election over the most PC mainstream politician of the century in a completely unexpected victory (well I expected it, but it came as a shock for almost everyone else). The cultural tension that existed before that only intensified afterwards.

I'm not alarmed about any of this, I just know that some kind of societal change happens at the end of a culture war, and it all depends on which side wins. In previous eras, this was settled quickly by just killing your opponent, but I don't think anyone knows how this will play out during the safest era of mankind's history, where solving your problems isn't as easy as shooting your neighbor.

All I want is for my anime and video games to stay lewd and strange.

okay, since you don't want to answer i will drop it.

Again, i agree with your "All I want is for my anime and video games to stay lewd and strange" statement.

But i'm not an extremist in which i will say, my country needs to accept loli games because Japan made it. EXTREME EXAMPLE.

Plus, you would think Parental Guidance Age limits would fix this. Maybe it's still the dumb perception that anime are cartoons and that means its for children. I don't know.  HULU says a lot of anime i watch is TVMA so i would not expect indecent to be an argument against a show.

I just hope people don't become reactionaries in large numbers. But i am seeing it become normal in anime community comment sections.

Corporations decide what is in and what is not. Consumers are only taken into account when it impacts their bottom line. Thereby if the majority of people have an issue with content, then subsequently corporations will attempt to alleviate that concern UNLESS the content already makes more than enough to cover their bottom line. Conversely if the content isn't special enough, not enough people will buy into their content, so they have to resort to more extreme measures to get a reaction.

Running a business is like feeding a machine. It doesn't care what's in it as long as it keeps printing money.

I think most would accept that, but when a group sees a youtube video about a blog, they put two and two together and come up with a conspiracy.
