Pedobear

Posted Sep 22 2013 9:14am

Pedobear is a cartoon mascot that became a well-known icon through its usage on 4chan to signalmoderators and other users that illegal pornographic content had been posted. Due to the widespread nature of its application, Pedobear has been often misinterpreted as a symbol of pedophilia and lolita complex, especially in the news media and law enforcement agencies.

The bear character originates from the popular bulletin board system (BBS) website 2channel in Japan, where it was introduced asクマー(Kumā), an interjection of the word(Kuma) meaning bear in Japanese.Unlike Pedobear, Kumā has no sexual connotations, pedophilic or otherwise.

Pedobear eventually became known outside 4chan as it was referenced by newspapers and prominent websites. It has been frequently misunderstood as a mascot of child sex offenders when on the contrary it mocks such people.

Pedobear was used in a CollegeHumor video parodying the movie Doubt.
