Shorting Disney

Beauty and the Beast (pushing homosexuality on kids)

Disney's Beauty and the Beast remake shouldn't have a tokenistic gay romance – the main characters should be gay

It was announced today, in the LGBT publication Attitude magazine, that in the upcoming remake of Beauty and the Beast there will be a gay romance storyline for the first time in Disney’s history.

Predictably, the immediate and most vocal online reaction was one of scorn.

Whenever LGBT characters are represented in mainstream stories, the producers are accused of shoehorning them in where they are not “necessary”. The addition of LGBT characters seems to always be perceived as a forced political statement. The implication is that LGBT characters don’t exist in real life, and could never arise in a fairytale organically.

Disney's first 'exclusively gay moment' hits screens in Beauty and the Beast

t built its reputation on princesses finding their prince, living happily ever after in storylines which set the benchmark for romance for generations of children.
Now, Disney is to move firmly into a new era as it introduces its first “exclusively gay moment”, disclosing the new version of Beauty and the Beast will star a manservant exploring his sexuality.
With lines like “For there's no man in town half as manly / Perfect, a pure paragon”, some forward-thinking fans had speculated there may be more to their relationship.
Their hopes will be confirmed when the new version is released in the UK on March 17.

Jiminy Cricket! Disney Goes Gay

The folks who gave us Mickey Mouse and Goofy have decided it’s time for your children to enjoy same-sex romance while they slurp down their Fruit Loops.
Disney just broadcast their very first gay cartoon kiss.

Though this is the first on-screen same-sex PDA, Disney has periodically included non-heterosexual relationships in its TV shows, including a lesbian couple in Good Luck Charlie and a gay couple in Gravity Falls. Viewers also have speculated about possibly gay characters included in the films ZootopiaFinding Dory, and Frozen. 
Cosmopolitan has expanded the list, suggesting that The Little Mermaid’s Ursula, Sleeping Beauty’s Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, and even Beauty and the Beast’s Gaston may be gay.
And last fall, the creators of Moana told the Huffington Post they wouldn’t rule out an LGBT Disney princess. Director Ron Clements said, “It seems like the possibilities are pretty open at this point.”
