Film follows a series of interviews over the years with now 22-year-old "Georgie Stone" who went to court to compel the Australian government to allow a puberty-blocker regimen at the age of just 10. I thought Netflix was going un-woke, but I guess they're still throwing crumbs to TRAs to maintain that all-important ESG/DEI score. If anything this story should be considered as tragic exploitation of a tender-age child.

Meanwhile, in its interview with the obviously brainwashed subject of the documentary, Pravda Canada continues churning out propaganda unimpeded. Clearly they are unaware of the train that's about to crash into Canada's elite ivory tower, courtesy of Fake Tits McGee in Ontario and a rambunctious Tory leader promising to de-fund the national broadcaster and back a parents' rights takeover of school boards. Interesting that there don't seem to be any reviews of the detransitioner documentaries soon to be released.

But anyway, for your edification: this one-sided hagiography of a child (in Australia, at that) put through the medical-experiment scandal of the ages sure gives a whole new context to that '60s pop song about "a new Georgie girl."

He’s huge. So much for it allllllll being about testosterone and “genes do nothing” 🙄

Edit. Filmed over 10 years and it’s ONLY 28 minutes long?!

the medical-experiment scandal of the ages sure gives a whole new context to that '60s pop song about "a new Georgie girl."

For context, "Georgy Girl" was the theme song for the very popular 1966 movie of the same name, a coming of age story about a 22-year-old in swinging 60s London starring Lynn Redgrave in the title role, with Charlotte Rampling, Alan Bates and James Mason.

The opening credits show the title character walking through the streets of London and being tempted into a hairdressers where she has her hair set in a far more contemporary style. She immediately changes her mind, and runs through the streets until she reaches a public lavatory. Once there, she submerges her hair in a sink-full of water, happy to return to her previously unkempt hairstyle. https://youtu.be/kGukkdt5yOo

Georgy is an intelligent, well-educated young woman who feels socially awkward because she's a bit dumpy and dowdy in appearance, forthright and boisterous in her manner, and has "never been kissed." In other words, Georgy doesn't fit the outward gender stereotypes of her era - at least not the superficial ones. Personality-wise she does fit the stereotypes, because she's got low self-esteem, lacks confidence, and thus is easily cowed, has trouble asserting herself and is a bit too desirous of pleasing others and being nice. This makes her a pushover and doormat in her dealings with her glamorous, selfish, imperious room mate, played by Rampling, and easy prey for the sexual advances of the two older men who pursue her, Bates and Mason.

Bates, then in his early 30s, plays Rampling's BF who gets Rampling pregnant but also has eyes - and hands - for Georgy. Mason, then pushing 60, plays the much older wealthy lifelong employer of Georgy's parents who has designs on Georgy. First he tries get her to be his paid mistress, and later after his wife dies, to marry him.

Georgina ("Georgy") Parkin (Lynn Redgrave) is a 22-year-old Londoner who has considerable musical talent, is well-educated, and has an engaging, shameless manner. On the other hand, she believes herself to be plain and slightly overweight, she dresses haphazardly, and she is incredibly naïve on the subjects of love and flirtation. She has never had a boyfriend. She has an inventive imagination and loves children.

Her parents are live-in employees of successful businessman James Leamington (James Mason), who runs a children's home. Leamington is 49 and has a loveless, childless marriage with Ellen (Rachel Kempson). He has watched with affection as Georgy grew up, and has treated her as if he were her second father: He provided for her private education at a Swiss finishing school, and for a studio in his own home, in which she teaches dance to children. Leamington thinks Georgy "owes him" for all he has done.

As Georgy has become a young woman, his feelings for her have become more than fatherly: James offers Georgy a legal contract, proposing to supply her with the luxuries of life in return for her becoming his mistress. Georgy sidesteps his proposal by never giving him a direct response; Leamington's business-like language and manner (and awkward inability to express any affection for her) leave her cold...

The movie ends with Georgy adopting the Rampling character's baby and marrying Leamington. Again, the age difference is worth mentioning: in 1966, Lynn Redgrave was 23; James Mason was 57.
