Controversial, opposite opinion: Steam refusing to give an exact definition of what a minor looks like is good. It prevents creators purposefully skirting along the edge of the rules. Essentially what is being said is "Don't even fucking try it. No. No. Don't try it. Stay the fuck away from the line. Or else." Which I actually really like. Otherwise the shady creators will do their best to sneak minor-replacement characters through the cracks, get into arguments over semantics, and in general find the closest possible thing they can to the 'line'. And then the journalists will get on Steam's case, and then hey presto suddenly Steam bans all adult content again.
