Beauty and the Beast

I have not seen Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast. I have see Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la BĂȘte, well, because I'm gay.

I did not see the Linda Hamilton / Ron Perlman thingy that was on TV pre-Terminator movies.

To be honest, I have no intention of seeing the new people version of Beauty & the Beast, but.....there is something about a boycott that makes me want to plunk down the dollars.   Oh, I might buy the ticket, but there's no way I'm sitting through that.

For those who missed it: the boycott is for a moment that could be construed as 'gay'. People in the south are every so upset by this. Theaters are not going to carry the movie because....homos.

I guess the girl-on-beast thing is ok. I mean, it is the south, I'm sure it's ok.

So, how to make Beauty even that more gay? this.

I guess besides being super queeny, it's semi-funny. And what else is funny is that you don't even have to have seen the original to get it. And it's good, bad lip synching is pretty good.

I thought it was only in Russia that anything at all, even the slightest hint of being gay, is deemed to be undesirable homosexual 'propaganda' and therefore to be suppressed and stamped down on. Seems I was wrong. Ah, yet again, similar thinking from those friendly Russian 'allies'!

I saw the animated version in the theater, but I think I'll pass on the movie. once was enough.

If there were any gay 'hints' in the cartoon version, W.Q., I missed them. I wouldn't normally go to this genre of film but I'm intrigued as to exactly what's got the Russkies so fuming that they think only adults should be allowed to see it - powerful forces there actually wanting to see it banned outright. I'll tootle along, keeping aware to make sure I'm not being 'corrupted', though it's a little late to be worried about that now (Thank God!). :-)
