Movie I just watched

I just watched Fantastic Beasts.

Good looking film, though the storyline was dull.
But I was struck by one thing, The Obscurus.

An Obscurial is a young wizard or witch who developed a dark parasitical magical force, known as an Obscurus, as a result of their magic being suppressed through psychological or physical abuse.

I felt like this was a very good metaphor for religiously suppressing sexual nature.
Shaming it and turning it into a beast.
The kind of beast that watches ‘you know what’
