And I've been excited about it. After all, the animated BATB is one of my favorite Disney movies.
So yeah, you can imagine.
PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO MESS THINGS UP HAVEN'T THEY?!
A couple of days ago, I discovered this article.
I know, go ahead and cry.
I don't usually share opinions on this blog. I just don't. I'm not an 'opinion sharer' outside of movies and books. I don't talk about politics, or anything controversial at all.
And I know I will be fighting a losing battle with this. Disney is a big company. There are probably millions of people out there who are just tickled pink to see the first 'openly gay' character depiction in a Disney movie.
But I can take my own little stand in my own little way, can't I? And maybe some of you who read this will, too. That's why I wanted to write this post.
I'm not 'against' gay people at all. Nor do I 'hate' gay people. God tells us to love everyone (your enemies, your neighbor, etc.). But I don't agree with them, not one bit. No more than I believe it's right for anyone to steal or lie or disrespect authority. It's all just sin.
We already have enough 'sin' in Disney movies, by way of 'innuendos' and hints and messages. But this. This is as open as it's ever been and I can't ignore it.
A bit of innuendo is not too hard to ignore. I can close my eyes to a little 'innuendo'.
If I couldn't, I wouldn't watch Sherlock BBC (ever heard of Johnlock? :P)
But this. Thiiisss.... *cries*
Disney is stepping out too far this time, and I don't want to be with them when they do.
A friend said to me in an email:
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO DO THAT TO A CLASSIC.
AND THEY'RE LIKE SO PROUD OF IT.
Unfortunately, I agree with her.
So yeah, basically I'm saying I won't be seeing the movie in theaters like I was planning, and I won't see it for a long time. I know a million other people will go see it even without me, but I, for one, will not give them my time or my money when they put out stuff like that.
Oh, I'll see it eventually. I'll watch it when I can see it for free and none of my money will be going to their box office gross. That's just my little decision, and I decided to share it with all of you, in case 1: You didn't know about this (and you ought to), and 2: In case you want to... you know... join me in my little, ehm, snubbing thingy. Or whatever you want to call it. *shrug*
:P :P :P
|GUYS. THIS PICTURE. THAT SET. IT'S SO... *SNIFF* ...BEAUTIFUL ...#whyyy|
See you later. Happy posts coming soon.
p.s. Current mood: :P :P :P
p.p.s. I think in my head I will still be excited to see the movie until I finally do. Because IT'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST FOR PETE'S SAKE. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME, DISNEY?
p.p.p.s. Let me just say that some of the stuff that Disney is coming out with would make the actual Walt Disney roll over in his grave. Shame, shame, shame.
Ok I'm done.
