Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

BTW, the trailer isn’t honest

They mention sex, there is alot of inappropriate touching/kissing, self harm, the main character tars off another girls underwear then proceeds to publicly pull out her own tampon to throw at the other girl. So I wouldn’t suggest that anyone under 17 watch this.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
