Raising Gaybies:
Hollywood, Homosexuality and Hypocrisy:
The Uproar Over Disney’s Beauty And The Beast


Hypocrisy: is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations, especially with respect to religious and moral beliefs; hence in general sense, dissimulation, pretense, sham.

I heard the most fabulous news – Beauty and the Beast is coming out – yes – I did say “coming out” – in 2 weeks.  Now, this is on the “QT” but there is going to be a gay character in the movie. I know, you probably won’t be buying advance tickets now because it “may” promote the homosexual agenda. Just like the movie Sleeping Beauty which fomented the Great Apple Poisoning massacre of 1972. Oh, remember all those knife wielding attacks in Central Park after the Huntsman tried to kill Snow White. And of course there’s that Disney movie, Finding Dory that turned everyone “lesbo” when Ellen DeGeneres gave that little fish a voice. What will Beauty and the Beast do to our youth?

Well, there is one person who is glad she didn’t buy advance tickets for Beauty and the Beast, a blogger who was quite vociferous in her disgust. I rarely, if ever call people “out” – get it – “out” on the Internet but if you are going to post something hateful – I will correct you in a dignified –  and deprecating manner. 

Cindy, who I am going to call “Cin” for short (as I don’t want to confuse her with the word “sin” which she won’t commit because of her morality), loves Disney so much that her favorite show on her Facebook account is, “Dancing with with Stars” – (uber gay), the Broadway musical– “Wicked” – (uber gay) – and show “Hairspray” – OMG – that’s a trifecta. But that didn’t stop the moral crusader from posting the following on her Facebook page:

“I’ve been looking forward to this movie for months. I’m glad I didn’t buy tickets in advance because now we will not be seeing this movie.”

Ok. It’s obvious, she is a hypocrite. She spews her morals but “Cin” enjoys the “sin” if you want to call it that, of homosexuality in Hollywood.

Bad news Cin, Hollywood is very gay. To see the evidence of that – one need only watch the 1995 historical documentary, The Celluloid Closet. This film shows the willful prejudice against gay actors by motion picture studios and censorship by our government to tamp down homosexuality in the theater. Yet, it exposes Hollywood’s screen writers creative efforts and subtle ways they incorporated homosexuality in popular films. Trust me, it will breathe new life into watching Ben Hur and Spartacus – seriously!

And what of this new Disney character that makes hypocrites like Cin so repulsed that she feels empowered to tell the cyber-world that she is glad she didn’t buy advance tickets – leaving the clear impression that it would be a waste of money?  Well, more bad news Cin, according to the Daily Mail, Josh Gad (Yes, from Disney’s Frozen – he played Olaf – the snowman) Bill Condon the director stated, “ LeFou (Gaston’s side kick)  is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston (who is HOT!) and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. It is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”

See Cin, I thought the gay character in Beauty and the Beast was going to be the candle stick – for obvious reasons. What a relief, the new movie is devoid of poisoning princesses, attempted murder, it’s just a film with a snippet about a supporting cast member discovering who he is. So, what’s the big deal. I mean even the famous nursery rhyme was gay – what do you think 3 men, naked, in a tub are “really” doing — “Rub a Dub Dub” Cin.

What do you think about Disney’s new Beauty and The Beast? Are you offended or is this much ado about nothing?
