‘Abuse’: Boston Globe slams academy-award nominated gay film that normalizes man-boy sex

Life Site News – by Doug Mainwaring

HOLLYWOOD, January 29, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite the fact that Hollywood is still swirling in a vortex of sexual harassment allegations, “Call Me by Your Name,” a movie about an older man’s homosexual “romance” with a 17-year-old boy, has picked up four Academy Award nominations.

The film is nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor for Timothée Chalamet, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Song.  

But by nominating the film, voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) have just put their tacit personal seals of approval on what the Boston Globe is calling “sexual predation and abuse.”

“‘Call Me by Your Name,’ the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a deftly directed, beautifully photographed, wonderfully acted master class in sexual predation and abuse,” wrote Cheyenne Montgomery in a January 25 collum titled ‘Call Me by Your Name’ is a dishonest, dangerous film.

“Although many reviewers touch on the problematic ‘age gap’ between them, for the most part, they minimize those concerns and lavish praise on the movie. (“An erotic triumph,” says one; “a romantic marvel,” says another),” Montgomery continues.

“But even the brief ‘age gap’ caveats miss the point. ‘Call Me by Your Name’ isn’t about an older man and a younger man. It falsely romanticizes an exploitative relationship between a grown man and a teenager. These manipulative relationships cause lasting damage, as I know from my own experience,” he adds.

Montgomery went on to relate how when he was a teen he was sexually manipulated and abused by an adult who at first posed as his protector.

“In real life and in the movie, these shouldn’t be thought of as sexy coming-of-age romances, deliciously painful trysts from which both partners emerge better for having known each other. When an adult grooms a teenager, and engages her or him in a sexual relationship, it’s neither romantic nor consensual. It left me shattered. For years I lived with intense shame, believing I was a bad person,” he wrote.

“This film has the potential to cause real harm by normalizing this kind of sexual predation. It could be particularly damaging for LGBT youth, who are already at a high risk for depression and suicide. ”

“So no, ‘Call Me by Your Name’ isn’t a radical, brilliant piece of art. We need to call it by its name. That name is abuse,” he concluded.

Since the movie debuted in November, it has been touted as an Oscar favorite by countless critics.

Call Me By Your Name Just Officially Became This Year’s Oscars Frontrunner,” trumpeted a W Magazine headline.  Rolling Stone declared it “the most romantic movie of the year” and “an instant classic.”  The New Yorker called it an “erotic triumph, emotionally acute and overwhelmingly sensual,” and it was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “gorgeous and intoxicating.”

Catholic writer Daniel Mattson, author of Why I don’t Call Myself Gay, also called the film “dangerous.”

“I know many men to whom this sort of thing happened. This is indeed a dangerous film,” he tweeted.

Ex-gay porn actor Joseph Sciambra said that the story of a broken young man looking for affirmation from other men can be told of practically all gay men, though many would not admit it.

“Sciambra, now a faithful Catholic, said when as a boy he finally had the courage to walk into a gay bar what he found were an enormous number of older men eager to show him the ropes, which they did, and pass him around. Already wounded by his own relationship with his father, Sciambra eagerly sought refuge there. He says the same story can be told of practically all gay men, though they won’t admit it to you or me,” wrote Austin Ruse last summer in Crisis Magazine.

After scoring win after win in courts across the nation, culminating in the United States Supreme Court’s landmark same-sex marriage Obergefell decision in 2015, the progressive left has moved on to its remaining frontiers: transgenderism and adult/child sexual relationships.

Pro-family critics have long warned of a slippery slope, noting how the normalization of homosexuality will lead to the normalization of first pederasty, followed by pedophilia.

  1. Hey… I hear the motion picture academy has a new actor award nomination category.

    “Best Original Rape Scene”.

    And the nominees are..

    Bill Cosby
    Harvey Weinstein
    Bill Clinton
    John Podesta
    Kevin Spacey….and…

    Drum roll pleeeeez

    Donald Trump in a supporting acting roll with Stormy Daniels.

  2. Lmao,
    Stormy Daniels
    Pornographic Actress
    Stephanie Gregory Clifford is an American pornographic actress, screenwriter, and director best known by her stage name Stormy Daniels and also known as Stormy Waters and simply Stormy.

    She does it for the money, ie as a business. Everybody is trying to open her drawers, most just cannot afford it, lmao. As with all of the Trump sexual misconduct allegations, They are dismissed due to not enough evidence for a legitimate case. All of the other names mentioned have enough evidence to either require a personal response or the judicial system brought a case before a judge and jury.

    1. Our Govt has shifted from a representative/Republic Govt to a Democratic/special interests Govt. They now provide a service and in order to ensure the services demanded by the special interest groups, the members need to be reminded who they are serving to ensure adherence without question. ie, blackmail and bribery. Please refer to Mkultra and Cointel, the position of the Secretary of State, Council of Governors, IACP, COPS program and the various highly placed commissions organizations and councils. Maybe consider the power of the UN as a tool, not to mention the special interests groups position as stakeholders regarding implementing National, Local and Community policies to a greater degree. Academia also has many uses, since all of those mentioned are graduates and groomed and selected to serve in some fashion or another enjoying many degrees that impact all of society in general.

  3. I thought about doing my own personal boycott of The Oscars, but that’s not big enough. Plus, I wouldn’t be able to spy on it and report back on all the subversion and programming. Such fun (and agony) to expose their game. So, what else can be done? Hmmm, let’s see…

    I can pass the word everywhere and often that this institution is serving the Zio-God of darkness and is going after our children and it must be taken down. I can pass the word everywhere and often. At least I’d feel like I’m doing something.

    Too long have celebrities been complicit, and for that they are given obscenely high salaries. Many call themselves champions of the poor while they live lavish lifestyles. Damn, why did I buy in for so long? I know why, it’s ’cause I love a good movie or a good song. If only those art-forms could escape the Hollywood hypocrisy and debauchery. So much work to do, but we iz doin’ it here.

    .

  4. “Pro-family critics have long warned of a slippery slope, noting how the normalization of homosexuality will lead to the normalization of first pederasty, followed by pedophilia.”

    Followed by bestiality.

    Some seriously SICK, TWISTED SCUMBAGS behind this perverted agenda.

    Definitely need killing.
