Hollywood can’t resist the urge to signal their virtue every time they get the chance. Will it start to cost them?
In Disney movies, princesses have always met their prince charming.
But, in a change of convention, one character in the new Beauty and the Beast film is set to have the studio’s first ‘exclusively gay scene’.
In the film, starring Emma Watson, manservant LeFou will explore his sexuality after developing feelings for macho leading man Gaston.
In an interview with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon said: ‘LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.
‘He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realising that he has these feelings. It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.’
Mr Condon said the character, played by Josh Gad, is part of a ‘watershed moment’ for Disney. He said: ‘The studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay.’
Miss Watson is also making the leading role of Belle more feminist. Once a dreamy bookworm, Belle has been transformed into an inventor.
In the original 1991 animated film, LeFou sings a pub ditty to cheer up his friend Gaston, a ladies’ man intent on winning Belle’s affection.
The lyrics are: ‘No one’s quick as Gaston, no one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston’s.’
‘For there’s no man in town half as manly. Perfect, a pure paragon.’
In the live-action remake, the beast is played by Dan Stevens and brought to life with state-of-the-art CGI technology.
Fans have mused over the sexuality of some other Disney characters for years, including Ursula, the seawitch in The Little Mermaid, who some think was inspired by a drag queen.
Others have hoped for a romance between The Lion King’s Timon and Pumba.
As if it’s not annoying enough to have celebrities tell we peasants what our morals should be, they’re now destroying a movie that was a childhood favorite of mine. I was actually kinda sorta looking forward to seeing this film given that I love seeing cartoon fairy tales that I once loved as a child being brought to life. But going to the movies should remain an activity where one can escape politics unless they deliberately want to see a film regarding the issue.
Disney apparently doesn’t realize this. The number of people in the United States alone that identify as homosexuals is less than 3.5%. And the more the media tries to normalize it, the more we start to see the truly degenerate sub-culture surrounding gay clubs and gay lifestyles. The lesbian and bisexual domestic violence rate is staggering at between 45-60%. Men account for 90% of Syphilis cases. 83% of those are from individuals with same sex partners. So much for a same sex marriage law when it appears that homosexuals are having way too much fun being liberated and celebrated for it.
As for Watson’s “feminist” version of Belle who didn’t find it good enough to just be a book nerd, fewer than 18% of women identify with the communist movement known as feminism. Particularly after third wave feminism has proven to be a mess of SJW regressive Marxist fanatical leftist morons who think their university education woke them up to the truth about the world. And yet, Disney wants to send a message to children that this is acceptable and normal.
The more the left pushes their way into our lives, the more we need to reject them. Maybe #BoycottHollywood will be more successful than I originally thought. Only time will tell.
