It comes as no shock to anyone with a Netflix subscription that much of the content featured on the video streaming service is decidedly not family friendly by any means. Well, a recent survey of Netflix Originals (content produced for the Netflix platform) found that 61% have a TV-MA (mature content) rating, with an additional 18% receiving a TV-14 rating. Shockingly, a mere 1% of their original content enjoys a G (general audience) rating.
Over 56 million Americans subscribe to Netflix, so these ratings are a good barometer of the kind of perverse content popular today for viewing. Sadly, most people have become so used to such terrible content that it’s seen as “normal.”
Here are just a few Netflix Originals that clearly demonstrate this trend towards mature (really, sexually perverse) content:
The trend in media is clear—display as many perversions of God’s design for marriage, gender, and sexuality as possible.
And, of course, it’s not just Netflix. Broadcast television and other video-streaming services are no better. A recent NBC News article highlighted research from LGBTQ media advocacy group GLAAD that found that a record 6.4% of primetime TV characters were LGBTQ. GLAAD claims that LGBTQ representation on TV and on streaming sites is at a record high (Netflix is specifically applauded as being number one in this area), but they are still urging those who make this kind of media to do better and add even more LGBTQ characters.
The trend in media is clear—display as many perversions of God’s design for marriage, gender, and sexuality as possible. Cleverly told stories can be extremely convincing and have the potential to change the way a generation views an issue—and Netflix, broadcast television, and groups like GLAAD know this. That’s why they are ensuring they load shows with sexually perverse content and LGBTQ characters and storylines.
Due to the increasing difficulty of finding family-friendly content, we’re excited about Pureflix.com.
