Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah,
For the first time in history the tables have turned on men. In the past "Witch-Hunt" was associated with women but now it is associated with men. In an effort to protect our children society has started to isolate men. This documentary explores the pedophilia hysteria and how all men are viewed as potential pedophiles. How did society come to such a conclusion and what are the political and social consequences? Have men really become victims of modern sexism or is the increase in sexism justified? Are All Men Pedophiles? Written by
Not a very solid documentary from a technical standpoint. A lot of the "evidence" provided is anecdotal at best, with very few experts backing up what the narrator says. Every last one of the interviews sounded scripted and forced, like they were pre-written. The narrator just gives the viewer the same information over and over again. He talks a lot, but he doesn't actually say anything.
Now, the content...that's a whole new story. I appreciate that this documentary covered the topic of female pedophiles/hebephiles, because I feel like that's something that needs more coverage by the media. However, I feel like the main message conveyed by the documentary is that while lusting after kids is wrong, wanting to have sex with teenagers is totally normal and natural. It feels like this documentary almost encourages those sorts of relationships.
Relationships between adults and teenagers are unhealthy, period. I don't mean ones between, say, 18 year olds and 15 year olds, I mean the ones between people in their early to mid twenties and people in their mid teens. Teenagers are not mentally mature enough to get into a relationship with such a twisted balance of power.
When I was 14-16, I was in two relationships with adults. One spanned from when I was barely 14 years old to a little after my 15th birthday with a man 7 years older than me. I was a child then and he exploited it. The second one was from when I was barely 15 to a little after my 16th birthday with a man who was 10 years older than me. These relationships completely skewed my ideas of love in a negative light, because I was - let me emphasize this - a CHILD. Teenagers absolutely do not have the mental capacity for serious romantic relationships with adults, because they are so easily manipulated and coerced into harrowing situations.
I feel like this documentary could have done a much better job exploring the power play between children, teenagers, and adults. It could have been a great way to open up lines of communication regarding pedophilia and the sexualization of minors. Unfortunately, when you look past the choppy, poorly thought out arguments, the shoddy narration, and the overall laziness of the documentary, it comes across as a half-baked justification of lusting after teenagers.
I'm truly disappointed because I was looking for something thought provoking. Instead, I just feel gross.
