READERS NOTE:

A Crooked Path removes euphemisms, abbreviations which remove from the mind the actual acts being mentioned, and soft misdirected language which has succeeded in totally redefining inaccurately the acts in question. There is no appeasement, no bowing to, no concern with “political correctness” here. Homosexuals are not “gay” people. They are sexual perverts. Plain and simple. And while the world, and the vast majority of Americans now elevate, praise, worship and honor the abominations of homosexuality and the myriad sexual perversions and deviant behaviors — with now almost 7 out of 10 Americans approving of such (interestingly about 6 out of 10 Americans also count themselves as “Christian” yet how could this be? The math does not add up. One cannot be all right with those things which go against God, nature, and God’s Word and also include themselves as disciples of Christ!) ACP will not partake of this and I will always remove language in articles which is not direct, factual, and calling these abominations what they really are. I suggest you do the same in your daily walk.

Disney Will Introduce Its First Homosexual Character in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Reboot – But That’s Not All

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a fan favorite.

The live-action remake of the classic love story where Belle — a smart and beautiful woman who loves to read falls in love with a prince-turned-beast — has been in the making since 2014.

In November, the first trailer finally dropped and it garnered over 127 million views within the first 24 hours of its release:

Fans were finally able to see Emma Watson, best known for playing Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” series, as the Disney princess, Belle.

Naturally, the movie has been receiving a tremendous amount of hype for its timeless theme and great casting.

But in a recent interview with Attitude magazine, the cast and crew revealed that this time, Disney is incorporating some real-life issues into the movie’s story line.

Director Bill Condon divulged that with the recent progress made for lesbian, homosexual, trans-gender, bi-sexual and queer sexual perversions community, he was influenced to portray a homosexual “moment” between two of the characters.

Anyone who’s familiar with the plot of “Beauty and the Beast” knows that the main antagonist, Gaston, is the epitome of a man’s man.

And then there’s Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou, who endlessly praises Gaston for his strength and brawn.

And Condon told Attitude that LeFou’s admiration for Gaston runs a little deeper than just a bromance:

“LeFou is somebody who, on one day, wants to be Gaston and on another day, wants to kiss Gaston.”

He continued, saying that the dynamic made for Disney’s first-ever gay representation on film:

“He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh [the actor who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away.

But it is a nice, exclusively homosexual moment in a Disney movie.”

Attitude’s editor-in-chief, Matt Cain, chimed in to highlight the significance of Disney’s move:

“By representing same-sex attraction in this short but explicitly homosexual scene, the studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be homosexual.”

Cain added that the deliberate choice to include LeFou’s feelings for Gaston is a huge step for the lesbian, homosexual, trans-gender, bi-sexual and queer sexual perversions community:

“It’s only a first step towards creating a cinematic world that reflects the one in which many of us are now proud to live. But it’s a step in the right direction and I applaud Disney for being brave enough to make it — and in doing so hopefully helping to change attitudes and bring about real social progress.”

Condon also added that the lyricist for the original 1991 animated film, Howard Ashman, viewed the Beast’s character as a metaphor … for AIDS:

“He was cursed and this curse had brought sorrow on all those people who loved him and maybe there was a chance for a miracle and a way for the curse to be lifted. It was a very, very concrete thing that he was doing.”

“Beauty and the Beast” hits theaters on March 17, and Disney will find out from moviegoers if its inclusion of a homosexual character is welcomed with open arms or if they went a little too far this time…
