So let me just preface this entire post by saying I DO NOT condone anything I have read about this film. I have not watched it and will not watch it, and I have zero interest in re-subscribing to Netflix, which I cancelled maybe two years ago, and haven’t missed since. My kids have a subscription and I used it to start watching Ash vs. Evil Dead, but halfway through season two or three the TV the sub is on got moved out of the living room and I haven’t made an attempt to pursue it. Not that it isn’t a great show, but I’ve seen enough and will likely just buy the series on DVD or BluRay.
That being said, I am not giving any kind of approval to ‘Cuties”.
For those of you who aren’t forced to be at a computer all day and may not have heard Netflix is featuring a foreign (French, go figure….) film originally titled “Mignonnes” but rebranded as “Cuties” for the West, I guess. It won an award at the Sundance film festival, a festival who’s most recent achievement was having its co-founder arrested for sexual abuse.
I won’t go into details on the subject matter, but you can read about it in the article at this link:
If you skipped the link you either already know about the film or have opted not to read the article, but I highly recommend you go back and read it or the rest of this post may not make sense.
Part of the article states:
The site declares that the film takes a “thoughtful look at the intricacies of girlhood in the modern age,” and is a “coming-of-age film that confronts its themes with poignancy and nuance.”
Despite it’s illegal pedophilia angle Rotten Tomatoes, and Netflix, gets one thing right about Cuties: It IS a modern day coming-of-age film in an age where children are taught from a very young age to become sexualized and sexually active. As I stated in my previous post on Cardi B’s WAP song the real danger lies not in the lyrics but in the fact that so many young girls know of and listen to Cardi B and will very likely be exposed to it. This has been going on for the better part of two decades already, with children being exposed to sex and being sexualized more and more until now we have grade school classes teaching mutual masturbation, anal sex and how to properly wear a condom before they are even close to puberty.
And this is the sad truth: We, the people, allow this to continue. How many conservative christians will wrinkle their nose in disgust over this and yet retain their Netflix subscriptions? How about their Disney+ subscriptions? Disney has been pumping out emotionally and sexually damaged girls for decades already, from Brittany Spears to Bella Thorne, something about the Mouse House sucks in cute and innocent young ladies, runs them through the ringer and spits them out as jaded, mentally disturbed sexpots who’s only value, really, is derived from their bodies.
Cuties is a modern coming of age story because we are living in an age of debauchery and excessive tolerance. Can you believe that in our modern day we are actually ARGUING with people over whether or not pedophilia is a sexual preference instead of a mental disorder instead of rounding offenders up and tossing them into the deepest, darkest dungeon the United States will allow? Or better yet, I prefer the Rittenhouse Pedo-Inoculation myself. Less strain on the state budget and it leaves beds free for criminals who can actually be rehabilitated. And if you think I’m talking about what you think I’m talking about then you are absolutely correct, that’s EXACTLY what I am talking about.
Turn the tide. Kill Netflix by cancelling your subscription and encouraging others to do the same.
Stop voting for the party that has openly embraced turning our children into sexual beings at six years old.
Stop supporting companies that peddle adult materials and concepts to kids who barely understand arithmetic.
There’s a line in an episode of the Simpsons, where we get to see the family in a future where Lisa Simpson is getting married. In the scene Homer and Marge are getting into bed when Marge looks at the TV and says, “You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I didn’t even notice. Yeesh!”
“You know, America embraced pedophilia so gradually I didn’t even notice. Yeesh!”
Doesn’t sound so funny in real life, does it?
