Slate Magazine writer David Edelstein sexualized “Harry Potter” actress Emma Watson when she was just 11 years old, a GotNews review of a 2001 movie review written by Edelstein reveals.
On November 16th, 2001, Edelstein wrote a piece titled “Flat Magic” for Slate, in which he reviewed the recently released “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” film. Edelstein wrote: “The prepubescent Watson is absurdly alluring to those of us who always went for bossy girls; when she fixed her sharp brown eyes on Radcliffe and said, ‘Harreh, do be keh-ful,’ my heart did about five somersaults.”:
Watson was only 11 years old at the time Slate ran the article, and was just ten years old when the movie’s filming took place.
This is most curious, given how Slate published a piece today by Joseph Fischel titled “How Calling Kevin Spacey a Pedophile Hurts the Gay Community.” Fischel argues that Spacey’s unwanted sexual advances on a 14-year-old boy do not count as pedophilia, writing: ” To be clear, under no clinical diagnostic I know of does a drunken, aggressive, and deeply stupid pass at a teenager qualify as pedophilia. Indeed, one working definition of pedophilia is ‘ongoing sexual attraction to prepubertal children … who are generally age 13 years or younger.'”
Under this definition, Watson, then aged ten, would clearly count as “prepubertal” – or “prepubescent,” as Edelstein originally described her.
