‘Cuties’ Pushes Pedophilia, Not Girl Power

“The global ruling class likes pedophilia.” That was the opening line of my speech entitled, “Childhood Sexual Abuse: Ending it, Healing it.” I can’t prove it in a court of law, of course. But we have now accumulated enough circumstantial evidence to convict in the court of public opinion. The Netflix film Cuties, and the controversy surrounding it, provides even more evidence to support my working hypothesis. 

Netflix promoted the French-made film in the U.S. with a poster that was far more risqué than the poster that promoted the original version of the film. Netflix quickly walked back the images and apologized: “The movie is about a group of pre-teen girls doing highly eroticized dance routines to win a competition,” stated the network’s revised description. 

The general public was not persuaded. In the Rotten Tomatoes reviews of Cuties,professional “critics” rated it 88% positively, while audience reviewers gave it an astonishingly low 3% rating. As part of the public’s reaction, an online petition called on the FBI to investigate Netflix. Another petition is calling people to cancel their subscriptions to Netflix. Both of these petitions currently have more than 600,000 supporters. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has called on U.S. Attorney General Barr to investigate whether federal laws were violated in the making of the film.
