This is very interesting. I'm not sure what he is referring to "morphed".

Wither this refers to animation or actual adults. As in example it is
currently against the law to have a 45 year old woman in pig tails and
school girl uniform saying she is 12 years old. You and your distributors
would be up on child porn charges.

The current law reads something like "using underage children or adults
appearing as underage children"
