Children are born with knowledge of the universal truth: oneness and kindness. They have it pounded out of them by the world and society we have created and sustained. Lets get back to the ONLY thing that has allowed humans to survive this journey of evolution: pro social values and community
Ok I'm about to rant about this because it makes me so annoyed
First of all, yes it's a great thing Disney has a canonly gay character (about time) BUT
1)The way they describe the character (and it's been the same way in every article I've read) is "he just doesn't know what he wants whether to be Gaston or kiss Gaston" like ok we have a gay character but he's already being accused of being confused??
2)His name is "Lefou" which literally means "the crazy" in French also he is being played by Josh Gad who is a great actor, yes, but he's mainly known for his comedic roles. This character is seen as crazy and a joke??
3)I've seen so much hype about it and I doubt he will even be on screen for 5 minutes let alone have more than a couple lines most of which will probably be comedic relief.
4)I love Emma Watson as much as the next girl, but nooo I don't agree that Belle and The Beast can be compared to LGBT characters, let alone people?? Like yes, Belle is "kinda weird" and The Beast is "judged for what he looks like," but that is nothing compared to LGBT characters/people and the struggles they face?? Like "oh I'm Belle I like to read books and some people think I'm strange" as opposed to "I'm gay and I'm repeatedly verbally and physically harassed every day at school and it makes it hard to concentrate on my schoolwork so I'm failing and I have depression" (that one is an exaggeration, but still) and just urghhh it makes me so irritated because everyone is getting so excited about Disney's first "gay character" when there is really nothing good or special??? Now I know I'm saying this without even seeing the movie, but I'm 90% sure that's exactly how it's gonna go. -Nat
