Forums - Movies Discussion - Netflix Loses Millions of Subscriptions Over Controversial Film, "Cuties" For Sexploiting Children

Let's get something clear here. Sexualization of children is not illegal. There seems to be little grounds to say that the film has done anything legally problematic. it may be socially problematic, or maybe problematic to any one of us personally. But, it ain't illegal.

Many U.S. lawyers disagree with you:

Lawmakers from BOTH parties are pursuing criminal charges against Netflix for distributing the film.

Legally, where do you think the line should be? (Please try to avoid vague wording)

Personally? I don't think that any pictures or film showing nudity under the age of 18 should be allowed, unless it is very clearly non-sexual, for instance a mother taking a picture of her young kids bathing and posting it on social media. No nudity under 18 at all in professional films, not even if you use a body double for the scene who is over 18. Non-nude sex scenes or sexually suggestive clips in films I'd say are ok if both characters and actors are between 15-17, no younger than 15, and the actors should actually be non-nude for the scene, as in the actors wearing some clothes miming sex under covers, having them actually nude together is not ok, even if the camera doesn't show any breast/butt/penis/bush/whatever. I'd say underage underwear and 2 piece swimsuit modeling is ok, though there are some that find even that to be unacceptable, and I understand why they feel that way.

Wouldn't most of the issues people have with Cuties still be acceptable under those rules? 



Of course There is people in Here defending this shit... I AM Not surprised.



Is someone in this forum french. The reason I ask this question because the naked body and being naked seems to have a different meaning for the french at least from my experience. I knew a french family that when they got home, everyone stripped naked like it was nothing. Walking around naked was no big deal and they did not seem to get sexualize by. It seemed to me at the time like a cultural thing. Anyway, its interesting how showing a nipple gets Americans in an uproar but shooting, killing, murder and other such things barely register any complaints.



I don't blame anyone for cancelling their subscription as a result of that "movie" it was basically child porn from what I've been told about it.

Nope, because the girls in Cuties are all 11, much younger than the 15yo minimum I proposed for sexually suggestive scenes in film and television. The movie has 11 year old girls twerking in a dance competition with the camera zooming in between their spread legs in some scenes, an 11 year old girl stealing a phone to take a picture of her own vajajay and post it online, an 11 year old girl exposing her breast to the camera, 11 year old girls twerking for 2 adult male security guards to get past them, among several other highly controversial scenes.

Welcome to the internet where even Konami fucking selling additional save slots at $10 apiece (!) gets defended.

Like I said, I'm not cancelling my Netflix over this, but I don't blame anyone who does.



Americans are so stupid.
This is why China will take the lead soon.

All faggots who says the film it's just child porn, it's disgusting, 100% nobody have seen it.
I'm French, i have seen the film, and the result ? the film fights all the controversies that people try to force on it.

Continue to ridicule yourself, between this kind of unnecessary bullshit and your catastrophic fight against the Covid which is 10 * more zero than that of France when my government was totally incompetent, I wish you good luck, and no, God will help you not, it's not your quarry spitting on the camera that will heal you.

You sound like a reasonable and mentally healthy individual. Have a nice day.



Well deserved backlash, I still can't believe they thought any of this was a good idea. I'm so happy I've never bought any Netflix subscription.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
