I'm tired of hearing about Cuties.

Not bc it's not upsetting, or bc it's not morally depraved.

But bc I know lots of the ppl who postured so spiritedly will quietly sign back up for Netflix & exactly nothing will have been done to fight child sexualuzation & exploitation.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to cancel Netflix. I respect that decision.

But if you're going to do that, consider taking whatever you paid monthly & redirecting it to an organization that fights sex trafficking, domestic abuse, or child sexual exploitation.
Or consider volunteering at an organization that does this.

At minimum, educate yourself about the REAL problem of sexual abuse of children that plagues us. Not conspiracy theories about celebrities, but educate yourself about your own state, city, community.
Learn how you can actually help, even if it's just by being more aware of the actual problem, rather than by distracting from it by perpetuating gossipy, shady conspiracies.

Canceling Netflix is fine.

But do more. Show you care about this, not just demonstrating trendy outrage.
Some organizations to look into:
@iEmpathize iEmpathize
@COTNight Children of the Night
@POP_PROGRAM Power Over Predators
@StreetlightUSA StreetLightUSA

Feel free to tag more if you know of any.
