Cuties review from my feminist 34 year old daughter

So I did it. I reluctantly watched #cuties hoping I wouldn’t run into some child pornography or ...something..:

After watching you all argue about it online I decided to watch it myself.

My verdict: it was well written, there’s a good moral and it shows how we as a society over sexualize children through media and peer pressure before they understand it.  I am much more worried about how dance moms, cheer mentality and beauty pageants influence a child’s misinterpretation of what “sex” and “sexy” are. 

It was a coming of age movie and it is eye opening to what girls go through with the type of access they have with internet that the rest of us didn’t have.

If men enjoy watching the tiny girls dance then you may need to seek therapy.

But I think it would be a very deep dive into a females psyche to look back on our own lives at that age and remember how things were for us. I never got into dance but I remember the pressure of being sexy and  sex stuff was very confusing. Without proper guidance and education girls don’t learn what certain things mean and what is ok treatment of their bodies.  I do however think there were lots of closeups of tiny booty that is no worse than what the tiny cheer and beauty queens wear and do.


I think you all need to stop jumping on a band wagon without getting fully informed. I am very judgy and feminist about what I see on tv and movies when it comes to over sexualizing women, rape and kids... and this film was not pornographic at all and the moral was that we shouldn’t be. And we should care and educate our baby girls more before they try to find out on their own.

3. I just watched it and I found it very disturbing. I know it was a show but damn where were these

kid's parents? Not one of their parents knew what they were doing?

It certainly was not a feel good movie that's for sure.

4. I ask the same about dance/cheer competitions

I don't see much difference. Those competitions are a pedophile's dream.

5. I'll have to look those up. I've watched those prom pageants which are disgusting to me

but I've never really watched the cheer and dance competitions. But if they dance anything like these little girls were dancing..........fuck no!

6. My son, who is 52 and a feminist

saw it and what he told me is pretty much exactly what you said. He has an 8 year old daughter, btw. I trust his judgement on something like this.
