Kinda sounds like your friend had a few visits to somewhere like 4chan before seeing that article, especially since the article never even mentions anything about weeaboos or has that sort of tone to it.

Yes, he sounds like a very unreasonable person who probally shouldn't be using the internet since 85% of it is anime and weeaboo shit.

Who says "weeaboo" anymore anyway?

"Human history and growth are both linked closely to strife. Without conflict, humanity would have no impetus for growth. When humans are satisfied with their present condition, they may as well give up on life."

I do, but I've never been very "with the times".
It looks nicer than "wapanese", at least.

I have a friend who doesn't even wanna play Touhou thanks to this article and now thinks that "Touhou is little girl shit for weeaboo's"

Of course, putting it without specifying your friend's mental state may make it sound solid.

Well guys, like Ghaleon, I read the article and didn't think of pedophilia until I read your comments. Are you sure you aren't being paranoid?

Also, this: "Unlike most popular Japanese PC Games, Touhou isn't an Erotic Dating Game or a Rape Simulator" just smacks of the same tired, played out, "lol japs is weird amirite" joke that's obviously trying to be edgy and satirical but just falls flat.

And can you tell otherwise?
First, the article is directed at the "halo-boy", that guy who never played anything of japanese origin with exception of Mario games (because everyone played those).
Second, pornographic cartoons from Japan are prominent. Before Pok?mon came out, I already knew about hentai anime, and I was a kid still. Not only that, even serious games feature "sexual" themes; take Soul Calibur 2: not satisfied with some characters exposing their skirts during fights, there are some revealing pictures in the unlockable gallery.
Third, you need to do research to find out that geishas aren't equal to prostitues, and even that isn't really a fact in every situation.
Can you really blame anyone for thinking they're strange?

First, so?
Second, there's "prominent", and then there's "most popular Japanese PC Games [are an] Erotic Dating Game or a Rape Simulator". I realize it's hyperbole for satirical effect - my point, again, is that this joke is tiiiiiiiiired.
Third, what the hell do geishas have to do with anything?

"Human history and growth are both linked closely to strife. Without conflict, humanity would have no impetus for growth. When humans are satisfied with their present condition, they may as well give up on life."

This is what an article about Touhou should look like. It's a perfect medium. No stupid fanwank or dumbass memes. No "lol little girls" or "every fan of this series likes child pornography" idiocy. It just tells the reader what goes on and lets them make their own judgment.
^This, Touhou is about Danmaku, not Lolicon

Unlike most popular Japanese PC Games, Touhou isn't an Erotic Dating Game or a Rape Simulator. In fact, instead of letting the player rape little girls, the game RAPES YOU... metaphorically speaking...
Danmaku games + Loli Girls = Serious Business. But I Repeat: Touhou is a Danmaku Game, not a Hentai Game.

If it's worth mentioning, I smiled at it saying that Nitori was Touhou's answer to TMNTs.
