Why the fuck are people trying to paint anti-pedophilia as a right wing position? Objectifying children goes beyond politics, it is disgusting and a crime.

What does he have to do with it? I don't follow that bullshit.

Tell that to the Vatican.

Yes, we all know Catholics tend to have a pedophilia problem, and they are not the only ones.

Anyways, I am disgusted at the seeming push to normalize pedophilia as a sexual orientation. Netflix's "Cuties" is literally pedo bait... like wtf were they thinking. You cannot bring awareness to objectifying children... by objectifying children. That is like beating an animal and saying its a message against animal cruelty. At least I am not the only one who thinks so.
Look at those dislikes.

I've just seen a lot of really weird posts from some folks on Facebook claiming that there's a movement afoot to legalize pedophilia (which is news to me). Most of it is from right-wing folks. QAnon was asserting that there was an international pedophile ring and that Donald Trump was working to stop it. I wouldn't be surprised if Russians had something to do with it, but people can also be deranged without the help of the Russians.

They're usually the same sorts of people who post some meme with an image of 9/11 about how they need to "keep remembering 9/11, EVEN THOUGH FACEBOOK IS TRYING TO CENSOR THIS." Keep in mind that I see 9/11 pictures on Facebook at least once a week it seems.


9/11 must be the most successful act of terrorism in history; it seems to have broken the brains of a significant portion of Americans; it seems to still be the case 19 years later.

So you think just because the director had "good intentions", that its okay to post things that pander to pedophiles? You are the one that needs to learn. My point is not asinine. This shit shouldn't be made in the first place. This director has to literally be retarded if this is what she intended. She filled the movie with one liners like "Are you coping a feel!?" from an 11 year old girl, when an adult tries to apprehend them for trying to run past security. Then they erotically dance, twerking mind you, in front of adult's faces. It is fucking disgusting. Shame on you for even considering supporting this.

This is what you are supporting, close up ass shots of 11 year olds. Be proud.

The darkness of your paranoid thinking is not something I care to read on a Friday night.

Adios.

No, under no circumstances can I see any decent human being defending this movie. You are literally supporting pedophiles by saying its just a movie with good intentions and blowing it off as if it is unimportant. You are part of the problem, and your apathy is the reason this shit slips by. This isn't fucking paranoia, and anyone with an iota of empathy and understanding can see there is something wrong with this movie. You can only be arrogant so many times before people get tired of your shit. Grow up and admit you are wrong.

Since you didn't take the hint the first time, I'll be more direct - get the fuck away from me.

You talking about that Cuties movie?

as someone whose experienced that predation through online means the whole community of people including MAPs (minor-attracted persons) who are trying to make themselves an actual sexuality both sicken me and terrify me.

I also want to point out I see plenty of liberals within YT videos discussing this saying they were cancelling their netflix over this movie.

I'mma make a longer post on the issue. XD

Here's your mini essay on the problem with cuties, and ultimately our society as well.

Firsthand, the protection of children is a non-partisan issue. Anyone trying to defend something like this because the director is black, or the children are poc, are ridiculous.
I want to be clear, I blame absolutely none of these children in the movie. I profusely blame every adult who is willing to sexually sell their child for that amount of money. I blame the director for somehow thinking this was okay.

I of course, have not exactly seen the entirety of the movie. But in hindsight to inform to see if Netflix did just make a bad promo, I found plenty of movie clips. And reviews from people who watched it. So my data on this goes into that.

Children are playing these roles. And they are so sexually provocative, these actresses cannot legally watch their own movie. That should attest to the level of vulgarity.
Those dance routines are extremely sexual, and the movie did a great job as panning in and showing that. Nevertheless, the movie as far as I see failed to really deeply grab the issue at hand. There are some movies where dramatization makes a mountain out of a mole hill. But it appears from what I see, she took a very psychologically nuanced issue and made a mountain into a small mole hill.

The reason it is more likely a pedophile will watch this than another person is they used real child actresses, and they hone in so heavily on the dancing. I realize the young girl is "rebelling" and making her own decisions as many young kids do. But the director completely missed the nuanced psychology behind....all of this. Directors choose to filter and cut scenes. She seemed to have chose to leave out a strong conclusion showing the young girl figuring out this isn't okay, she doesn't need this, and she needs to be a kid. The direction heavily focuses on the dance, the fame, and the smidges of downfall.

Now, I realize the director, likely wanted this level of disgust. She is likely hoping people will watch it to feel enlightened. However, because we live in a society that does in fact groom girls to think this is maturity and that they need to do this, all this movie does in that way is promote it.

I do feel I have a right to say something about this movie as a preteen girl who faced being pushed into far more sexual situations from a young age due to certain assholes on the internet. Who were adults. They've made me definitely realize the only thing they'll do with a movie like this is watch that 11 year old shake her ass for him. You don't end child pedophilia by creating you. You don't stop child pedophilia by showing small repercussions, as if this girl will now not grow up to futurelly have psychological trauma from all this. The story is missing so many elements that would make this stronger. I would much rather they have possibly made it in the instance of her now being older, with flashback scenes to where it started but not consistently. SHOW HOW THIS ACTUALLY FUCKED UP THEIR LIVES FOREVER. that's what the people will get. This? glorified smut of 11 year olds in my eyes. I speak as someone who had similar experiences. Don't tell me to fuck off about my feelings about it next.

When there's a whole "MAPs" community on twitter that you get banned for speaking against, and youtubers trying to actively defend MAPs as a sexuality, I am fucking terrified. Who is going to protect the children? We just hand them the internet and we let it raise them. Now we have the side effects.

Seems like an excellent time to read this...

Why Are Right-Wing Conspiracies so Obsessed With Pedophilia? – Mother Jones

Why do child-abuse conspiracies explode into public consciousness at certain moments? Explanations offered for the peculiar resonance of Pizzagate and QAnon tend to focus on pathologies in the media ecosystem—epistemic bubbles, polarization, the unruly growth of social media. But years before the fracturing of mass culture and the dawn of Reddit and 4chan, the McMartin accusations fed a national spectacle during which scores of people were wrongly accused of sex crimes against children.

Wanted to add on to this, as more people watch the movie to attempt to understand...

they show full frontal child breasts, a child taking a nude, up skirt shots, and more. There are scenes of this movie that should be classified as child pornography. Netflix should not be distributing and profiting off of the exploitation of children.

Would like to remind you the actresses are 11 years old and cannot watch their own movie.


"You need to be European to understand this movie". Hi, Spaniard here. Yes, our movies show boobs, sometimes frontal nudity of both men and woman. BUT NEVER CHILDREN!


You can’t make a movie on how murder is bad, while actually murdering someone. You can’t make an animal abuse movie by kicking a dog in the face. You can’t make a anti-child exploiting film, while exploiting children.

"I'm gonna comment on how sexualizing underage girls is wrong by hiring underage actresses and making them act provocatively on camera while zooming in on their private parts."
2020's term of the year is cognitive dissonance.


I'm used to slow art films, I'm used to growing up in a heavily sexualized culture (brazil), I'm very aware how it affected my teenage years. I gave them the benefit of the doubt because I think it's possible to use the topic in a compelling way, but what they did here was completely inappropriate in so many levels.

I don't care if it happens, I don't care if ~ I ~ have been that girl twerking at 11. When I was doing, I wasn't around adults with cameras, I wasn't coordinated, I didn't know ~ why ~ I was doing and ""sexy"" was definitely a concept I had fully grasped. Age of consent in Brazil is ridiculously small which gives leeway for all sorts of creeps. It fucks kids up big time. That's something I'd like to see explored, but 'cuties'?

What they did was INTRODUCE those young actresses to those concepts - probably for the first time, what they did was NORMALIZE those sexual behaviors to them. They were choreographed to dance that way, they blocked the scene, they used the "male gaze", all of that. And for what? What's the MESSAGE?

Some kids are exposed to sexual behavior at a very young age so... let's traumatize a brand new cast of girls that had nothing to do with it? Where were their parents?!


You didn’t mention the scene when Amy (Main Character) is caught with her cousins phone that she stole and begins trying to strip off her clothes for him to avoid punishment (???). It was so random and unnecessary, in my opinion it was one of the worst scenes in the movie.

The moment someone found out that a little girl shows her Bare breast in a movie should be instant cancellation!!! I have no idea how anyone can see this as a good thing. Would they want their child to be looked at like that ? You can do a movie or documentary and not go to those extremes to get your point across. I would have never let my daughter do a movie like that. Makes me wonder how the hell do their parents sleep at night. They basically pimped their daughters out in my opinion. I’m sorry if that offends anyone but I can’t help thinking about how young they are.

After seeing your Instagram story of you watching it I decided I'll see it for myself as well. Big BIG fucking mistake some other things other than what you mentioned. The main character so many times I was like what are you doing why are you doing this and literally nothing is explained. It was like a fever dream of what the fucks non stop. Even the so called ending if you can call it that nothing happened. She just goes outside and plays fucking double Dutch and I'm like what huh how the fuck! OK so there zero problems for this girl she goes about her life like nothing happened like she didn't just basically drown her "friend" by pushing her in the canal. Or stealing or skipping her father's wedding I'm so confused and dirty feeling. This was a bad decision 100 %.

just want to show some arrays of actual people's comments who watched the movie.
