Jello and Jasmine really enjoyed this selection. It was on the fruitier side of the scale. We didn't have time to taste this with food but would love this with some fruit! If you would like to purchase this wine you can search for it using the link on our website or for a small convenience fee you can purchase it through this page here. *Shipping included in the price* The bottle is appropriate for this week's episode as it was centered around the new movie "Cuties" that was released on Netflix. Netflix received back lash including threats of being canceled behind the film for it's pretrial of young girls in the world we live in today. Look at the butterflies on the bottle. Before they became beautiful butterflies they were caterpillars. That is a good metaphor for women. We were once girls. But inside of all of us is a strong, bold, curious woman that is ready to take flight. We should not have our wings removed but nurtured. We should not hide but express ourselves and our beauty. The world wants to see it! Along with that we must understand that we are so delicate and fragile like the caterpillar and the butterfly. We must be protected from sexual predators for ALL ages. We must honor women and be proactive with our girls by LISTENING to them. Not TELLING them what they should do. Two things showed that the people who are so "outraged" about this film let you know they really didn't even watch it were; the scene of the older woman (I believe the grandmother) telling the 11 year old girl "When I was your age I was already engaged" This should have been very eye opening because it acknowledges the history of not only sexualizing young women but how we force them to grow up just to serve others. Last, at the end of the movie the young girl is performing on stage in front of judges with her friends and suddenly becomes overwhelmed when she realizes she is missing her mother's very traditional and conservative wedding and runs off stage where she meets her mother in the performance clothing. At first she is scolded by her grandmother for the clothes and asked to put on the conservative wedding dress. Her mother then steps in and says if you don't want to you don't have to... In the next scene the performance clothes AND the wedding dress were lying on her bed. As she walks down she passes the ceremony and decided to go play jump rope in some regular everyday school clothing. THIS was the most important lesson given. THEY ARE STILL FIGURING IT OUT PEOPLE! Young women are going to make mistakes! They are going to try to be too sexy. They are going to try to be grown. But if they have SUPPORT and if they have guidance not to a path that someone wants for them but to a path that shows them that they can CHOOSE. Then you will see the woman they REALLY want to be.
This is a video of Jasmine when she was 16 years old. Although 16 year old girls dancing like this in this day in age may not seem very terrifying but when I tell you her daddy so terrified he made sure the whole family and church knew about this video to try to embarrass her as a way to protect her, it is really no different to how the 11 year old girl felt in this movie. Today, Jasmine is a Bachelor of Communication degree holding, woman’s right advocating, podcast hosting, blog writing, acting, dancing, singing, butterfly.
