GamingThread Japanese devs' obsession with child/child-like characters trope and how problematic it is
Reason User banned (duration pending): dismissing concerns around content including sexualised minors, whataboutery
I'd say that's very relevant exactly because one is fiction and the other is reality. Now if the fiction had led to that reality, that would be an actual issue but I'd still lay that problem at the feet of the people who let fiction guide their reality. So I guess the question then is rather, what kind of real life consequences are there of these characters mentioned in the opening that would constitute a problem? Are girls trying to conform with this image? (aside from 'non-norm' comic-cons I guess) Are guys who regularly watch this getting excited when they see a little girl walk by irl? Is that the concern?
