Full disclosure: I haven’t seen Call Me By Your Name and wasn’t aware that there was a book.

I do find it odd that, only a few months ago, the nation was embroiled in a debate over whether a man was fit to be a US Senator due to his history of having allegedly inappropriate relationships with teenage girls. Kevin Spacey was literally scrubbed out of All The Money In The World due to his past relationships with teenage boys. The fact that this critically acclaimed film romanticizes that very same type of relationship baffles me. The same people railing against Roy Moore, Kevin Spacey, and others – and rightly so – are praising this film.

What am I missing?
