Okay so I've always thought "loli" in an anime meant a girl who looks or/and acts underage but isn't. I used to be like "I match that criteria perfectly! I'm totally a real life loli" (I'm 24 but look 14). But now I'm not so sure I should be claiming to be a "loli" lol. That term seems to have various meanings. So I'm wondering what the anime community thinks it means and if there is a legitimate singular definition for it or if it is just a multidimensional/broad term?

I think generally it's derived from the term "Lolita" after the Vladimir Nabokov book where an older man is in love with a young girl. I think generally Loli gets used as a somewhat creepy way to describe fethisizing young girls in anime.
