A Texas lawmaker says he’s going to introduce a bill in the state to make sure that the French-film “Cuties” is recognized as pedophilia, thus criminalizing it, a statement to the Daily Caller said.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called on the Justice Department to investigate Netflix and the “Cuties” filmmakers to determine whether they broke any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.
Republican Texas State Senator Bob Hall told reporters that he’s going to introduce the bill as soon as the session starts to prosecute Netflix for hosting “Cuties,” which has been criticized for sexual depictions of young girls and includes suggestive dancing, as well as close-up shots of the young girls’ buttocks and crotches.
Netflix responded to the criticism in a statement provided Friday Sept. 11 2020 : “Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children. It’s an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up – and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.”
What is the Film; “Cuties” that is hosted on Netflix? Should we be concerned.
Ok now I and others are really angry. Let me tell you why. We watched the film suffering through 90 minutes of a French coming-of-age comedy-drama. The plot revolves around a French-Senegalese girl with a traditional Muslim upbringing who is caught between traditional values and Internet culture. If anything it was painfully embarrassing to watch dumb kids make stupid mistakes.
According to the filmmakers, the film is intended to criticize the hypersexualisation of pre-adolescent girls. The film premiered in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition section of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival on 23 January, where Doucouré won the Directing Award. It was released in France on 19 August 2020 by BAC Films and internationally on 9 September 2020 on Netflix.
Ted Cruz had this to say in a letter to Attorney General William Barr Friday
“The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing, including at least one scene with partial child nudity,”
“These scenes in and of themselves are harmful. And it is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways.”
Does anyone remember Madonna from the 1980s to mid 1990s? The number of adolescent girls mimicking what they saw on MTV and VH1?
Brittany Spears to Miley Cyrus. Hannah Montana anyone? In the early years of her career, Cyrus had a generally wholesome image as a teen idol. Her behavior generated considerable controversy throughout 2013 and 2014, although her godmother Dolly Parton stated “…the girl can write. The girl can sing. The girl is smart. And she doesn’t have to be so drastic. But I will respect her choices. I did it my way, so why can’t she do it her way?
Cyrus was placed at number seventeen on Forbes‘ list of the most powerful celebrities in 2014, the magazine noting that “The last time she made our list was when she was still rolling in Hannah Montana money. Now the pop singer is all grown up and courting controversy at every turn. Cyrus came out as pansexual to her mother at age 14 and has said: “I never want to label myself! I am ready to love anyone that loves me for who I am! I am open.” In June 2015, Time magazine reported she is gender fluid. She was quoted as stating she “doesn’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.” Cyrus stated she is “literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age. Seriously and the Right Wing Evangelicals continue to purchase her music and watch her on Disney.
Cyrus is open about her recreational use of cannabis. She told Rolling Stone in 2013 that it was “the best drug on earth” and called it, along with MDMA, a “happy drug”. While accepting the Best Video Award at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards, Cyrus smoked what appeared to be a joint on stage; this was removed from the delayed broadcast of the show in the United States.
Here is the plot of the Film
- Eleven-year-old immigrant girl Amy (pronounced [Ami]), originally from Senegal, lives with her mother Mariam in one of Paris’s poorest neighborhoods. In an apartment along with her two younger brothers, she waits for her father to rejoin the family from Senegal. She helplessly witnesses the suffering of her mother, whose polygamous husband is preparing to return from the country with a second wife. She is also bored during prayer and more generally of the religious values that her aunt seeks to transmit to her.
- Things turn swiftly, as Amy is fascinated by her disobedient neighbor Angelica’s twerking clique called Cuties, an adult-style dance troupe which has contrasting fortunes and characteristics to Mariam’s religious customs, values and traditions. The pre-teens practice for a competition and do not hesitate to adopt revealing outfits in the image of their older competitors. Encouraged by success and the quest for recognition on social networks, Amy decides to incorporate into the choreography gestures of sexually suggestive dance moves that she has seen on videos.
- Following a humiliation at school, she sends a compromising photo of her vagina on social networks, which causes her to be rejected by her classmates. Following a quarrel with the rest of the Cuties, they ban her from performing with them at the dance contest. While her father’s wedding is on the same day as the final competition at Parc de la Villette, she is determined to dance with them. Sneaking out of the house in her dance outfit, she pushes another member of the Cuties, Yasmine, into a lake, so that the Cuties have no choice but to allow her to dance with them. The highly suggestive dance routine shocks the audience. Suddenly thinking about her mother during the routine, Amy bursts into tears and leaves before their performance ends to join her mother. Upon her return, she runs into her aunt who blames her for her outfit and recent attitude. Amy’s mother intervenes by telling her to leave her daughter alone and then hugs her to reassure her. Amy implores her mother to allow Amy to not attend the wedding, in order to demonstrate her disapproval. Amy’s mother permits her to not go, but states that she herself must go to fulfill her duty as a wife. Amy then abandons both the traditional wedding dress and her sexy dancer’s outfit, and, in jeans and a t-shirt, her hair down, she goes out to play jump rope with a group of girls.
Who is Texas Senator Bob Hall?
Bob Hall, elected to the state Senate in 2014. Hall challenged state senator Bob Deuell from the right in the 2014 GOP primary, calling Deuell a pawn of Satan and public schools a method of “communist indoctrination.” He’s spent much of his time since on the problem of “electromagnetic pulse weapons,” or EMPs, a quack threat to homeland security derided by most credible arms control experts and a frequent plot device in pulp novels in which strong men defeat foreign threats. More recently, Hall came to the defense of Ray Myers, a personal friend and fellow tea party activist, who announced to the world that he was a “white nationalist.” The day after the story came out Hall was photographed with Myers at Trump’s hotel in Washington, D.C, later telling a Texas Observer reporter that the press liked to “view others through the faulty prism of perverted extreme political correctness.”
Last year Hall was listening to invited testimony on Senate Bill 784, which would make changes to how each school district’s sex education curriculum is approved. Sex ed is a controversial topic in Texas, and witnesses brought strong opinions. Susanne Kerns, the head of The Informed Parents of Austin, is a supporter of comprehensive sexual education. She testified against the bill, citing Texas’ high level of teen pregnancies. That’s her right, as it is for Hall to be against comprehensive sex education.
But then Hall decided to challenge Kerns, and things took a bad turn. Hall explained to Kerns that comprehensive sex ed was a tool used by abortion clinics to drum up business. “We have heard testimony in other settings from people who have worked in the abortion industry who created the initial sex education courses for the purpose of increasing their supply line of young women for abortions,” he said. As soon as sex ed was introduced to schools, Hall continued, “that’s when we saw the increase in teen pregnancies going up.”
The idea that supporters of abortion rights are in it for the money, rather than because of their own sincere moral convictions, is common in some circles. But Hall took it a step further, offering the belief that the pro-choice left has deliberately attempted to get as many teenagers knocked up as possible over the decades to keep the factory line at their abortion clinics flush with unhappy patients. Not only that, Hall vaguely suggested they had admitted to it. If it needs to be said, this has no relation at all to reality—one of Planned Parenthood’s core missions is to educate people about contraception—and it’s downright weird to hear it in an official setting. (Hall did not respond to a request for comment.)
In closing one might evaluate themselves if they were sexually aroused from watching a group of pre-adolescents mimic and emulate models, dancers and actresses they see on televison, film, magazines and the internet. In the 1980s there was concern over kids acting out MTV Videos. If you find yourself with a “woody” watching kids do this sort of thing, the pedophile may be you.
With all the murders, white collar crime, real pedophiles running about. Drug cartels taking over the state. The mass distribution of methamphetamine that none of you from lowest law enforcement to the highest elected official is doing what?
