So excited about my new blog!
Beauty and the Beast was absolutely amazing!! The script followed the original Disney film almost word for word. Songs that never made it to the original film were used. The scenes were recreated frame by frame! The sets were exquisite and an exact copy of the animated backgrounds. It was breath-taking! If you were a huge fan of the movie as a child then you are going to fall in love and be as enchanted as I was! It was always one of my favorite Disney movies, and they did it perfectly!!!! Bravo! I had my doubts about Emma Watson As Belle, but she was wonderful! They were all wonderful!
And please forget all the hoopla that’s being said about this film and the characters! It only hints that LeFou might have a crush on Gaston, and it could easily just be envy. There is a scene at the end where for one second it shows everyone dancing and then LeFou and another guy begin to dance together. Big deal. Certainly not the first time that’s happened in a family film or show. Does this mean the characters are gay? An adult or teen might be able to see it, but children will not bc it’s not presented as a main point of the film.
I am telling you this bc the misguided outrage and misinformation about this is beyond ridiculous! It’s a non – issue. i have seen way more in some of your favorite shows that your kids have probably seen you watch. It’s not teaching children to be gay or pushing any type of agenda. Did the writers do this to normalize Gay characters? If so, then I call it a tiny step in the right direction. Because Gay people ARE NORMAL. They are everywhere, and I know that you know this! They serve you at restaurants, they do your hair and nails, they ring up your purchases in stores. They assist you when you are sick in the hospital. They are doctors, lawyers, teachers, dentists, florists, bakers, librarians, policeman, fireman, etc. It is normal to see and know Gay people, and you likely have them in your life, either in your family or friends of your family. It is normal to see Gay people in everyday life because it is normal to be gay in everyday life. You don’t have to like it, but you do need to treat them with kindness and respect, and not act repulsed because they are represented by a minor character in a movie. Don’t boycott things just because people are gay. You wouldn’t want someone boycotting you. Don’t boycott them.
Also, this goes for interracial couples as well. I loved the movie for this! It was inclusive and showed several different races and interracial couples! Thank you, Disney! And thank you, Bill Condon and the cast and crew of #BeautyandtheBeast!!! 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
I hear a lot that I complain about 45 too much. Why can’t I give him a chance? Why can’t I just shut my mouth and watch as the White House burns down to the ground? Why do I antagonize the very people I love dearly by posting incessantly about the latest thing this buffoon has done, said, or tweeted?! The answer is simple. You voted how you felt you should, and so did I. But it doesn’t matter who I voted for. I’m not gonna stand by and watch a narcissistic tyrant destroy our nation. No one should. I gave trump a chance. I gave him a chance to apologize for the comments about Mexicans. I gave him a chance to apologize about what he said about the former Miss Universe. I then listened as he rallied a base who frankly scare the hell out of me! I’m a mom. I’m a daughter. I’m a sister, and I’m a friend. Most importantly, I’m an ally.
I protest Trump because I love you. I advocate for all people from all walks of life to have the opportunity to live that life as they see fit. I believe in human rights. I believe in equality and inclusiveness. It upsets me when I see a man who once mocked a disabled reporter in front of a cheering crowd be allowed to continue his Campaign for president and then be elected!! I gave him a chance to apologize for that. He has repeatedly denied it ever happened. He has spoken badly about women, calling them pigs. He personally attacked Megyn Kelly (who I don’t even like), but she didn’t deserve to be treated as he treated her. So many terrible things he said on the campaign trail, continually rallying a base of angry, hostile, racist, misogynistic, Muslim – hating bigots. He instigated hate. He encouraged it. He thrives on it.
Trump is a king on the throne of bigotry. He admitted to “taking” what he wanted on that now infamous recording from Access Hollywood. That is why it’s defined as sexual assault, people. And he dismissed this as “locker room talk”. No apologies to the public for having to listen to that garbage. 45 believes he can do no wrong. And he loves attention. If you can’t tell by now, he’s a big crybaby when the attention is negative. Well, crybaby Trump, the attention is negative because you are such a negative person. I have never seen a presidential speech from any president where all he did was yell and talk about himself.
I have given 45 chance after chance from the moment he was sworn in. And what did he do? He spoke about carnage and this bleak America that I do not know. An inaugural speech is supposed to be hopeful and inspiring. That was not the vibe. Since then, every moment has been a circus. He’s cutting things that I would never have imagined any human would want to cut! Organizations that rely on federal funding. What did Big Bird ever do to you, 45? Please don’t ask me anymore why I can’t give our new “leader” a chance! He has a new chance every day to start fresh, but he just won’t take it.
And so I will continue to talk about Donald Trump and rant about his stupidity, selfishness, and fragile ego. I will protest his policies, budget cuts, and speeches. Because Donald Trump doesn’t care about you, my friends. My allies. You need to take a long look into why you aren’t protesting this man. He is tearing our country down, and the GOP is allowing him to do it. That party ain’t looking so grand right now, is it?
I’m so excited to finally have my official Blog! It is a work in progress so your patience is appreciated always! Thank you for reading!
