Of all the disgusting things that our culture has produced, none is worse than the seemingly ascendant trend towards sexualizing children. But at least one smut peddler may have gone too far this time.
Netflix shocked the conscience of the nation when it released “Cuties,” a film that sexualized young girls in the name of “raising awareness.” Now, Netflix is facing a grand jury indictment for distributing child pornography.
Rep. Matt Schaefer broke the news on Twitter:
Netflix, Inc. indicted by grand jury in Tyler Co., Tx for promoting material in Cuties film which depicts lewd exhibition of pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 yrs of age which appeals to the prurient interest in sex #Cuties #txlege pic.twitter.com/UJ1hY8XJ2l

The indictment charges that Netflix “knowingly promote[d] visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time the visual material was created, which appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”
I can’t emphasize enough how happy I am that Netflix is feeling the heat for this. When did the sexualization of minors become acceptable in blue-state America?
We truly live in a world that’s lost its way. Thanks to the grand jury in Texas, we may be finding it again.
