This isn't about Ladybug and Cat Noir is it?

What's the difference between this show and any one of the dozens of "beauty pageants" for young girls that take place around the country? If you're going to be gravely, direly offended by one, then be gravely, direly offended by the other, too.

...or it could be a coming of age story involving dance. Without having seen it you can't really know.

Fox.  Is Netflix stock too high and shorting would be a good idea?

Or cheerleaders, or gymnastics, or....


well the list could go on for a long time, but the only thing that will actually happen is outrage on social media. everything else takes too much effort and the outraged cant be bothered to get off the phone

To be fair, I think the collective reaction to those is that they're creepy as well...
You do get the faintest impression that the only real positive feedback comes from a mixture of Pedophiles, The parents of the entrants living vicariously through their kids, and the Kids themselves from the ego boost...

This.

This sort of thing isn't new. Remember the video of a dance pageant or whatever of the scantily clad girls dancing to a Beyoncé song? There was an uproar and things continued on the same way and still do.

Competitive dance.  At least some of the schools don't encourage this stuff.

It's a lot more fun and dramatic to overreact hysterically to anything involving children.
That way no one can accuse you of caring less than they do.

I'm sure glad American society doesn't sexualize little girls.

Sparkle Motion! Get out.

This film sounds gross and I'm no prude. Pageants are equally gross.

directed by Polanski?

It's really just going to be the gateway show that helps normalize the Netflix series on purity balls.

/I have no idea if such a show exists
// please tell me it doesn't

Those are run by Christians, so there's nothing weird going on there. Duh.

I read the whole article, against my better judgement, hoping to find out what this HORRIBLE movie is ostensibly about, but instead seeing the usual collection of professional umbrage-takers whining about the collapse of society.

Prediction: This movie features a third of a second of someone's nipple... Maybe.

This does look creepy as shiat.

Miraculously it is not.

While concerning, I'm going to wait until there's a report from people who have actually seen the movie and not just the preview, and also doesn't quote tweets from Daily Caller staff.  Then I'll decide whether outrage is warranted.

Those pageants are seriously farked up and their existence in no way justifies a series that sexualizes prepubescent girls to a mass audience.

At the very least, it means we can't attack French culture for producing this.

This is the land of handsy youth pastors, the land of the law looking the other way when a church tells them to, the land of the Disney Channel.

I need to go back and watch that movie.  From what I remember it got a little creepy with the girl started pretending she was his girlfriend and imagining that she could be his wife but the movie wasn't glorifying the acts.

Yeah I was thinking pretty much this. As long as you allow those, you're in no position to criticize other countries for doing the same.  Funny thing is that a movie showing children that age committing violent acts would be okay with those folks.

I thought the screenshot couldn't be that bad.  But, what the fark, that isn't suggestive that is disgusting.  Also, now I have a tracker from the FBI on my phone.

Interesting bit of psychology at on display here. Seems like everyone is generally disgusted by 11 year olds twerking. 19 year olds twerking, on the other hand, perfectly fine.

At what age are women "allowed" agency over their sexuality? And who has the right to make that decision?

No doubt. The European/full version of that movie is super creepy.

Here are some strong words about a poster

"Netflix is premiering *Cuties* on September 9. ... the promotional image is 11 year olds dressed in clothes inappropriate for adults (so bad I won't tweet it)," Friar Matthew Schneider wrote on Twitter.

And here is the actual poster
