Yeah, I agree with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R CO-3). President Trump may be crass and may have, at some times in his past, have made some fairly crude sexual comments, but he’s never been called “Creepy Uncle Donald” or “Donald ‘Bad Hands’ Trump.” So yeah, I too miss those apparently halcyon days when the man installed in the White House didn’t single out six-year-olds and compliment their legs while giving speeches.
Thanks to Netflix’s decision to stream Maïmouna Doucouré’s “touching,” “explorative,” and “feminist” work, “Cuties,” protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation has become a Right-Wing thing according to many Democrats and likely Democrats.
Of course, given much their rhetoric, this essentially indicates that protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation isn’t a Left-Wing thing anymore. But then, that’s not that much of a surprise, given their views on sexual orientation and the fact that Americans very much hate pedophiles.
Or maybe it’s Right-Wing Only now because of President Trump, or rather. the Left’s insane hatred for him and those who voted him into office.
Yeah, it’s a simple, sad fact that, while it’s possible that the Left is still against the sexual exploitation of children, it’s not their priority and, given the choice between protecting kids and railing against President Trump, his administration, and the 10s of millions of his supporters, the kids lose.
The truly sickening part is that many, but by no means all, on the Left will likely turn to supporting pedophilia just because we’re against it and they don’t want to agree with us on anything.
On “Cuties” Itself
I can’t personally judge the film since I haven’t seen it and have no intention of doing so. Frankly, a movie about an 11-year-old French-Senegalese girl rather poorly navigating the onset of puberty as part of a strict Muslim household on the outskirts of Paris has little to nothing for me to identify with or have interest in. And, beyond that, some of it would sicken me.
What I can directly speak to is Netflix’s poster/trailer for “Cuties” – which I’m neither posting nor linking to – being the primary source for triggering the widespread backlash against the film. It really made the film look like “spank bank” material for pedophiles.
Not one of Netflix’s finer marketing moments and something that makes it so that they deserve whatever negative consequences that get since stupid should be painful since pain is the only way to teach the stupid.
DISCLOSURE: Years ago I worked with a Children’s Advocacy/Protection organization that partnered with the FBI and Interpol. I actually put my “InfoSec” skills to use directly hunting down pedophiles online, gathering evidence, and turning them over to the authorities for prosecution.
That was a couple of very hard years which, after a lot of what I saw, seriously colored my view of anything even close to child pornography.
Ahh yes; the “intersectionality” of the soft-core corollary to Rule 34 and Fathers Day. And, a jarring mix of hot and disturbing.
But that’s the thing about the internet. Memes & Tropes abound, go viral, and become embedded in society, often in ways that bear little, if any, resemblance to their original intent.
And again, Rule 34! There will be a “Sexy” [Whatever].” 🙄
The Slippery Slope is generally considered to be a fallacy. It is an argument in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another, prior event without any providing any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between the eventual event and the one being argued against but no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed or enacted in their turn.
In general I agree. The Slippery Slope is a fallacy and, much more often than not, sloppy thinking. But what if we’re greasing the slope as it were?
Many laws, especially those dealing with sexual partnering, sexual acts, and sexual relationships are wholly or primarily based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices.” Many of those laws that once had valid scientific rationales at one time have lost those rationals due to medical advances. Others had and still have outcome-based basis in the effects such things have upon the titular children of such unions, yet those negative consequences have been ignored in favor of a new ideology.
As you chip away at those laws that are based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices” or apply new societal mores and cultural “prejudices” to existing situations you can make it so that each increase in permissiveness makes the next incremental increase that much more likely through normalizing or “main streaming” what was once unthought-of, abhorrent, and/or outre.
Western, especially American, jurisprudence also has to be taken into account because it’s inherently based upon Common Law and under the US interpretation of such court cases are decided based upon prior argument, precedents, and judicial pronouncements rather than solely on legislative enactments. in other words, arguments and verdicts in prior, similar court cases can be compelling or even binding precedents in current and future cases.
The Slope As It Was, Is, and Will Probably Be
Progress Is Opinion. Progression Is Mathematics
The battle to overturn the laws against miscegenation was long and hard-fought but it was victorious. But many of the same arguments that were successfully used Loving v. Virginia to end those “Jim Crow” statutes were later used in Lawrence v. Texas to abolish or make largely enforceable the various laws against: Sodomy, Fornication, Adultery, and violent sexual fetishism (BDSM). In turn, arguments from both Loving and Lawrence have been used to legalize Gay Marriage in various states and to overturn DOMA at the federal level.
Each set of court cases added their levels of grease to the slope, making it increasingly slippery. Hence, there is no logical reason not to predict that this progression will continue and that these increasingly entrenched arguments and precedents will be used to legalizing polygamy, incest, and some forms and/or levels of pedophilia.

One must always remember that lamestream priorities are quite different than American priorities. America’s domestic enemies and their media pundits have far different priorities than Americans do and apply vastly different standards to their own vs. Americans.
Lamestream Priorities – Water! Pedophilia & Prostitution, Not So Much
Yes, the Left and their media are far, far, far more concerned about Senator Marc Rubio’s (R-FL) pausing to drink a glass of water during a speech than with Senator Bob Menendez’s (D-NJ) repeated venting his pedophiliac lusts into child prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.
Odd; looking at Menendez, I’d have thought that he was White enough to be a “White Hispanic” and held to White standards by the Liberals. I guess I was wrong.
But hey! What a little, or far more than a little, fornication with- and sodomization of Dominican girls in the grand scheme of the Left – as long as Menendez votes for higher punitive taxes, gun confiscation, Obamacare, and other Liberals and Progressive causes? Senator Rubio’s thirst is much more important.
It’s all a matter of understanding Lamestream priorities. 😉
