I’d like to talk about the movie Cuties on Netflix, it is causing a lot of controversy and I’d like to add my two cents.
They took eleven year old girls and decided to sexualize them, make a movie then brand it with a mature rating saying only adults should watch it.
So the girls they exploited cannot watch what they did, now before you decide to take me to task for prudish tendencies, let’s chat.
The girls are grinding, twerking and rubbing their vaginas while a camera gets closeups of it. In one scene one of the girls tries to seduce a grown man. Taking his phone and running into the bathroom, pulls her pants down and takes a picture of her crotch. Then publishes it, when she comes out of the bathroom, he pushes her away saying what is wrong with you.
This sends a message that an eleven year old girl is the seducer and the man must protect himself from her.
This is a pedophiles dream scenario, this movie will be watched by sexual predators everywhere and they will start acting out this movie with young girls.
This is not a cry wolf situation, if you have any knowledge of how sex trafficking or abuse works, you will know that the aggressor always blames his victim.
There is a lot of blame to go around, from the one who wrote the script, to the casting director, producer, film director, director of photography, the crew and above all, the parents of these eleven year old girls.
If any of you have an eleven year old girl that is taking pictures of her vagina and posting it, please get her some help and find the person who groomed her. Because 11 year old girls do not think of these things themselves.
I am beyond disgusted that they are trying to say this is a coming of age film. The Goonies, that was a coming of age film, My Girl was a coming of age film, even Star Wars was a coming of age film.
Stop trying to pretty up soft core Kiddie Porn, that’s what this is. Oh I know it won an award at the Sundance Film Festival. I also know Sterling Van Wagenen, who co-founded the Sundance Film Festival, has been sentenced to at least six years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of a child.
That’s all I have, I’m disgusted as a mother, I’m disgusted as a grandmother, I’m disgusted as a woman.
Save our children, all of our children, stop sexualizing them in film.
