Hentai versus and Misogyny

Hentai is a strange phenomenon, with an almost exclusively-Japanese audience. As a fringe interest, the fixation on cartoon versions of youthful women being ravished by tentacles, lava or snakes may have appeared fairly harmless. With the recent publicity given to Rapelay however, it becomes apparent that there is a strong undercurrent of misogyny and a desire to subjugate women within the hentai genre.
