|Beware the hormone monster.|
The trailer promoting the new Netflix animated series Big Mouth is a cringy experience and highlights a disturbing agenda in mass media: The sexualization of children. Welcome to media madness.
The series features voices from top names in comedy such as John Mulaney, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen. Despite this impressive (and costly) talent roster, the show will most likely be awful and horrifying. Don’t believe me? This trailer [I don't recommend watching the trailers. I watched about 20 seconds of one and had to turn it off.] should be enough to convince you. The fact that watching this near 3-minutes long trailer actually feels like 30 minutes is not a good sign.
...with great budget and exposure comes great agenda pushing. A great number of recent Netflix productions are heavily tainted with strong social and political messages – and straight up propaganda...
For some bizarre, disturbing and upsetting reason, the sexualization of children is also part of that agenda. Slowly but surely, new content keeps pushing the envelope, slightly going too far, chipping away at moral decency to make the sexuality of children fair game.
Why? Because Hollywood and the world elite are full of children lovers and they want to normalize their derangement.During an interview with the creator of this depraved show CBS decided the trailer was "too vulgar to show." I had to turn off the teaser video on the "hormone monster" which showed him encouraging a young boy to masturbate while imagining his dad's associate, Susan, who the boy told to take off her top. This is filth masquerading as funny.
I like a lot of the shows on Netflix. We just finished the 2016 season of Longmire and I was already looking forward to the next season. But I'm done. I can't continue to support a company that peddles pornography to youngsters. So today I cancelled Netflix and wrote about Netflix's decision to peddle porn to children. Millstone time.
Here's my email. You can send your own to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Mr. Hastings,
I received several emails today about the Netflix “children’s” show Big Mouth alerting me to its pornographic contact. I started watching a trailer about the “hormone monster” and was so appalled I had to turn it off after the first twenty seconds. It is filthy and disgusting and morally evil to teach and encourage children to masturbate. No wonder we have an epidemic of children engaging in all kinds of sexual experimentation with this kind of material being shoved in their faces. How many youngsters become pregnant or contract sexually transmitted diseases because of filth like this? I’m curious whether you have a connection to Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion provider in the country and a purveyor of this same kind of material to young children.
I saw in your bio that you are married. I don’t know if you have any children, but it would be shocking to me to think that a parent would be willing to see children exposed to this moral corruption.
My husband and I have been Netflix customers for years and have enjoyed many, many shows: Lie to Me, Criminal Minds, Midsomer Murders, Broadchurch, and many BBC productions. We just finished the 2016 season of Longmire and were already looking forward to the release of the next season. We spent the first ten minutes on Netflix last night browsing the episodic detective series looking for another to take its place. We settled on Awake and watched the first two episodes. I’m disappointed to think that we will not find out what happens to Longmire’s friend Henry. We will have to leave poor Henry in the desert at the mercy of the villains because I cancelled our membership this morning and have no intention of restarting.
You have buckets of money I saw from your bio on Forbes, but, as St. Thomas More said to his betrayer, Richard Rich (slightly edited), “Why, Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world...but for Netflix?” The Bible tells us that a millstone waits for all who scandalize the little ones. Perhaps you should consider that when you browse the content on your channel.
As a Catholic blogger who also has a presence on social media, I will be urging others to cancel their subscriptions. I hope many follow my example.
