“The director of Cuties has said she received death threats after a promotional poster for the film was criticised for sexualising children.
Netflix apologised and removed the image after receiving significant backlash on social media last month.
Filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré has now told Deadline she “received numerous death threats” over the poster.
She said Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos phoned her directly to apologise after the poster sparked controversy.
Cuties originally premiered at the Sundance film festival in January and received positive reviews from critics.
Cuties follows an 11-year-old who joins a dance group. Doucouré says it is meant to tackle the issue of sexualisation of young girls.
Netflix showed girls posing in skimpy outfits in its promotional poster for the award-winning French drama, which sparked online disapproval and a petition calling for Netflix to drop the film.
However, many defended the movie and said Netflix had not accurately represented it in the poster.”
We fight, because they will have every other thing under the sun censored, and stay emboldened to threaten the lives of others, if nobody with at least half a lick of common sense ever stands up to them.
This whole fiasco is incredibly stupid…
…There are many people out there, who should be deeply ashamed and embarrassed of themselves.

“Radio host, Carrie Abbott (http://CarrieAbbott.com) and
A heavy conversation, but so important, if we are to learn how to protect kids & support survivors.”
We fight, because people like this are free to slander and libel us at will, without consequence, and even in the pursuit of personal, monetary gain.
This “interview” is a doozy.
You can follow the link to his Twitter account, take a look around, and come to your own conclusions about the extremity of his dehumanizing behavior.
He has a “business” which offers “professional advice” to churches, to “get/keep sexual predators out”. He produces and releases a seemingly endless stream of fear mongering, and libelous smearing against MAPs.
…all while exhibiting no actual understanding of MAPs, MAP issues or the MAP movement.
He appears to be a typical, abusive, exploitative bigot.
Hamburger Veermaster unpacks and critiques a typical Jon K Uhler rant.
…and gives a bit of background on Jon.
Do you feel right about having someone like Jon out there, spreading this type of dehumanizing propaganda?…If you are a MAP, are you okay with people like this, doing these things at your expense, and for a predatory personal profit?

“Today, at 12:55 in the afternoon at the Liverpool Civil and Family Courts, Esther Baker was made bankrupt as a result of her crumbling libel claim against John Hemming and her failure to pay the costs order. At this point, most mentally healthy people would think again about supporting her. Two notable exceptions to common sense however are “Dr” Jacqui Dillon and Rotherham Councillor Jayne Senior. Despite Hemming now having won two libel claims against significant opposition – a former Guardian journalist and a charity CEO – these two women continue to refer to Baker’s allegations on Twitter.”
We fight back, because of slanderers and charlatans…
…And when we do fight back, we tend to win.

“A report found 415 complaints under ‘abuse of position for sexual purposes’
Suspects, victims of crime, children and witnesses are among those exploited
Comes after rapist Ian Naude preyed on his 13-year-old victim while a police constable in Cheshire
Hundreds of police officers have been accused of exploiting crime victims for sex by pretending to be ‘knights in shining armour.’
A total of 415 allegations have been made against officers for ‘abusing their position for a sexual purpose’ in three years, HM Inspectorate of Constabulary said.
Suspects, victims of crime, children, witnesses and vulnerable people are some of those who were exploited.
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
When a country creates an unaccountable police state, as it clearly has in the UK, there is no limit to their criminality. The topic above is just one tip of a huge iceberg being uncovered. A second, larger chunk, is the police-enabled false allegations industry. The Daily Mail appears to be the only newspaper making some sort of effort to do the uncovering.”
What is the best way for an actual predator to evade the law?…
…It’s to become the exact person, responsible for enforcing the law in their area.
They can always fail to open an investigation on themselves.
If nothing happens at the early levels…nothing ultimately happens.
I’ve mentioned this a few times over the years, and it recurrently shows to be true…
…there are strong parallels between the mind of a criminal, and the mind of a cop…particularly the authoritarian type of cop.
They are both social bullies…and often a criminal could have become a cop, or a cop could have become a criminal.
This is a well established point of fact.
Yes…of course…”not all cops”…
But it’s still something social science has made clear.
“A Tragic Suicide
Sixteen-year-old Cory Walgren committed suicide on January 11, 2017.
Cory committed a crime for which he faced the possibility of being punished by consequences that he believed were worse than death. At 16 years of age Cory was faced with the possibility of joining the ranks of the most hated social pariah in our society and facing a lifetime of never being accepted as a normal citizen with the respect and rights that ought to be a part of citizenship. It was not irrational to think that this might be a fate worse than death.
Most liberal-minded people would probably feel that making a video of his sexual activities with his girlfriend was poor judgment, but it was hardly a heinous crime. Few would think that a virtual death penalty would be an appropriate consequence for either his sexual activities or his making a video of them.”

“A new survey has revealed that 9 out of 10 children agree that tech firms have a legal responsibility to keep them safe online1.
More than half of the 2,004 11-16 year old children surveyed had accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, YouTube and Snapchat.
Children thought social media platforms should protect them from sexual, self-harm, suicide and violent content online.
These figures come on the day that we handed in our Wild West Web petition to 10 Downing Street.
The petition has almost 46,000 signatures – showing the overwhelming public support for the Government to bring in an independent regulator to force tech firms to keep children safe on their platforms.
We’re now calling on the next Prime Minister to ensure they act quickly to introduce legislation. We believe that criminal sanctions and corporate prosecution are vital for this to be effective.”
You ever find yourself asking questions like…
…How leading were the questions in this survey?
…How well was the importance of open dialogue explained to these children, prior to [or during] this survey?
Few people like the way a large section of the online community behaves so abusively…
…but this comes off like just another cheap censorship campaign, and online power grab.
The tools to deal with this already exist, on major platforms [and some platforms already exist, which are enitrely dedicated to children, and are heavily moderated]…
…Anyone can block and mute, to their hearts content…
Shouldn’t the NSPCC be educating children on the perfectly adequate measures, which are already their at the child’s disposal?
Kids eventually have to learn how to navigate this sort of thing, after all…
…The government being an obsessive nanny, and regulating everything they see, hear and read, is doing them no favors…and is far more dangerous in the bigger picture.
This is stunting human beings…It’s removing their ability to adapt and grow, in a healthy way.
This looks to be nothing more than a measure imposing draconian measures, on the rest of the internet.
Does this organization have integrity?…
03) Hello. FGM is illegal and a form of child abuse. The evidence on MGM isn’t strong enough to suggest that male circumcision should be considered a form of child abuse, when considering the physical, religious and social implications.
This is an organization which takes a strong stance against female circumcision…while at the same time, it cannot figure out that male circumcision is any form of child abuse [let alone, violent, injurious and life threatening], at the very least.
Is this organization even valid?
I know they do some good work in this world…but…Jesus Christ…
…This level of total disconnect from reality, is outright horrifying.

“Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee. Apologies for hastily-made video in the airport lounge.
This is a woman who fought to get Amos Yee out of Singapore, when he was being persecuted for voicing his views.
…Allegedly, Melissa is a professional free speech [and human rights?] activist…
…And yet…when the speech is concerning “pedophiles” and “pedophilia”…Melissa is not so much of a champion for speech…
In fact…it seems the people who want to push back against pedophile hysteria are “okay to throw to the wolves”…if we are taking Melissa at her word…and, well…she can tell you in her own words.
…Amos was pushing back against the pedophile hysteria, after all.
I am glad I kept Amos at a distance…I don’t have any bad experiences with him…I barely have any experiences with him, at all…but I’m too cautious, to go running into any type of relationship with someone that rambunctious…and I wanted to see if/how he would establish himself, first…I wanted for time to vett him.
It raised a great deal of concern, when the claim surfaced that Amos was outing NOMAP’s…
…Regardless of what you think of NOMAP’s…that sort of behavior is not something I take any positive view on…
It’s one of the unforgivable sins, in fact.
We as a community, exist by delicate balance…and we cannot be violating the very principles which keep us safe and functioning…Nobody can just move in, and decide they are going to impose this sort of thing on the wider community…and I will never side with anyone who does such a thing.
That is a different issue from the subject of this post, however.
We fight…because even the “free speech and human rights champions”, have largely turned their backs on us…
…They are derelict, where it comes to the free speech and human rights of MAP’s.
If they are supposedly the line of defense we are expected to rely upon…
…then we are absolutely screwed.
We are forced to be our own defense…often times, standing alone.

“I really want this to be looked into. This child deserves a healthy childhood.” – AnnaMae Renee
She does not even know the family…and admits there is a lot of speculation, in her complaint…
A little bit off the beaten path…but this absolutely ties in, not only with things that a lot of us MAPs have been subjected to…but with contemptuous, manipulative and paranoid behavior, anyone can fall victim to.
There has been something of an outrage storm, going on in the conservative/religious section of YouTube, regarding “Desmond is Amazing”, his celebrity and performances…
Of course…there are a lot of people, who have no direct knowledge of the situation, who are morally outraged and wanting to have Desmond removed from his home. There has even been a lot of talk, about reporting his parents to Child Protective Services…
…and AnnaMae Renee confesses, that she did just that…and walks us through the aftermath…with an inclusion of her own dictations, on how “Desmond’s life is supposed to be”…making further demand of his mother, to respond with answers to her interrogation…
A number of these sorts of people, have been stalking, digging and collecting information on Desmond and his parents…because they are losing their minds, over Desmond having pranced around on the stage of a gay bar…and throwing off his jacket.
These are people who are clearly letting their imaginations run wild, and spinning a story that “Desmond is in danger”…when there is really nothing to justify that conclusion.
One of the reasons why we fight…is to push back and stand up against this type of online bullying and harassment…
AnnaMae scoffs at being called a bully and a stalker…but that is quite literally, what she has engaged in…
…And there is something wrong, with anyone who cannot self assess…and see that they have crossed a line here.
She even ends the video, with demands towards the mother…she demands the mother submits to her questioning…otherwise…?…
…This is clearly sociopathic behavior.
