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.

S&M, Bondage, S*x Sl*ve Gear for Kids

I hate everything about this cartoon, and I'm certain this review may be attacked. Just as Balenciaga had to apologize for fetishizing kids as sexual objects by posing them with S&M BONDAGE WEARING STUFFED ANIMALS (for gods sake), I'm not sure how Netflix is able to get away with this "interactive series" for geared towards kids. To see characters dressed as underground sex slaves, engage in cis/trans/gender wars, swap sexualized body parts, and be generally obnoxious was startling, to say the least. This series could have effected the same message of empowerment without the weird attempt to desensitize children to sex harnesses, dom/sub, whips, and chains. It's sick. I hate what television has become.

S&M clad booties for kids!?

NOT FOR KIDS. Saw some reviews online and kept an open mind in case there were just some overly Karen parents about. Colour me shocked when I did in fact see a leather clad butt bent over in fishnet tights! I have a 5 year old who enjoys copying what he sees, there is a lot of the characters playing with each other’s ‘booties’ and seems to be a lot of sexual innuendo too. How is it okay for the characters to be wearing such sexualised clothing!? How can they be role modelling this kind of contact as ‘friendship’ (or role modelling this kind of contact at all). I’m disgusted that Netflix allows young children to access this, I wouldn’t want my older child watching it either because it’s just mindlessly stupid- but at least an older child has a clear understanding of boundaries and will know that it’s not okay to be copying the show like this. Smaller children are way too impressionable. I’d be mortified if my child ended up copying any of this behaviour in school, or anywhere else!!!
