The Sexualization of High School Children

While I enjoy watching shows like Euphoria just as much as the next person, I feel as though casting people in their 20s/30 year olds to play 16/17 year old high school kids so they can sexualize them is odd. This happens in several shows and movies and while yes high school children do sexual things the way a lot of movies/shows depict it is clearly not for high schoolers. So essentially, they are making movies/shows for adults sexualizing minors. Even though the actors are not actually minors, they are playing minors.
