I can’t believe how many people are defending Cuties. We are used to warnings of “no animals were harmed in the creation of this movie” and we all think it’s a good thing that animals aren’t harmed.
And here actual live children – because the actresses aren’t robots, they are little kids – were harmed for months under the excuse of making some utterly inane point. And still people are curling their lips at the “right-wing freakout” over the exploitation and child abuse.
What’s really shocking is how many women are defending this. To them, it’s not OK to subject a grown actress to a sexual experience she doesn’t welcome in private but it’s perfectly fine publicly to do that to children who aren’t capable of consenting.
But hey, no animals were harmed in the filming of Cuties. What a relief.
