It's sort of a good point.

It's sort of a trendy thing to say, but it makes a good point.

at z q
for
or wanton to read.
Soon she starts getting ideas.
And thinking.
Think about it, the truly scary thing about Beauty and the
Beast isn' t that Gaston exists, but that society *******
loves him. People who deride the movie by saying it' s
about Stockholm Syndrome are ignoring that it' s actually
about the various ways that truly decent people get
otheres by society. People don' t trust the Beast because
of the way he looks. which only feeds his anger issues
and pushes him further away. Gaston isn' t the only one
who criticizes Belle for being bookish, either; the whole
town says there must be something wrong with her. And
her father gets carted off to a mental asylum for being
just a little eccentric.
Howard Amman. who collaborated on the film' s score
and had a huge influence on the movie' s story and
themes, was a gay man who died of AIDS shortly after
work on the film was completed. If you watch the film
with that in mind, the message of it becomes clear.
Gaston demonstrates that bullies are rewarded and
beloved by society as long as they possess a certain set
of characteristics. while nice people who don' t are
ostracized. The love story between Belle and the Beast is
about them finding solace in each other after society
rejects them both.
Notice how the Beast reacts when the whole town comes
for him. He' s not angry. he' s sad. He' s tired. And he
almost gives up because he has nothing to live for. But
then he sees that Belle has come back for him, and
suddenly he does. In the original fairy tale, the Beast
asks Belle to many him every night, and the spell is
broken when she accepts. In the Disney movie, he waits
for her to love him, because he cannot love himself.
That' s how badly being ostracized from society and told
that were a monster all your life can **** with your
head and make you stop seeing yourself as human.
Society rewards the bullies because we' been brought
up to believe that their victims doe} belong. That if
someone doesn' t fit in, then they have to be put in their
place, or destroyed. And this movie demonstrates that
this line of thinking is wrong. It' s so much deeper than a
standard "be yourself" message, and that' s why it' s one
of my favorite Disney movies.

Have you noticed that in 9/10 disney films, Gaston would actually be the hero?

I mean, look at him, he's strong, handsome, courageous, he is the only person in the whole town he tries to talk to Belle, even if his intentions are not so noble, he makes an effort to talk to her, while the rest of the town talks behind her back and calls her strange.

The beat kidnapped Belle's father and took him captive, and then later took Belle captive, to an outsider, that would look more than a little bit strange, so Gaston actually tries to save her, by attempting to kill the beast.

In my opinion, if it was any other disney film except this one, Gaston would be the hero who saves the princess, he just happened to be the right person in the wrong place, but unfortunately for him it didn't make a difference this time.

my ex girlfriend hated herself in every way, because she'd been bullied all her life for being fat.   
it eventually drove her to dump me, because she couldn't bare being loved by someone, when she couldn't love herself.   
she told me that every time i told her i loved her, she was reminded of how she couldn't love herself.   
i have no idea if she's even alive anymore, she completely cut off communication with me.   
and before you tell me i should never have let her leave me   
i had no choice in the matter, i tried for nearly a year to stop what i saw was coming.   
but i couldn't exactly force her to stay with me.   
the worst part was, everything she thought of herself, was all wrong, she was an amazing person, and incredibly kind.   
<- to all the people that think 						****					 of themselves, don't, it's never as bad as you think it is. and you can, and will, change. everyone changes, always, and as long as you're not a psychopath, you can make someone truely happy.

I played a Dungeons and Dragons game as a Lawful Good Paladin named Gaston. I was an absolute asshole that by complete accident was loved by everyone because I would be trying to screw over one person in town that just turns out was a vampire. I once broke in and stole the money from an orphanage that ended up being a front for a child prostitution ring, and was given the key to the city. MFW.

&gt;Gay person works on a movie   
&gt;&quot;Omg look how progressive it is! It tells how society is bayd and gay peeple are gewd!&quot;   
   
Get over yourself op. Christ, just because a dude who likes dicks works on a movie doesn't mean he bases every 						*******					 thing in the movie about the struggles of being gay, why being gay is good, or how gay people were bullied.    
   
This may come as a shock, but sometimes gay people do their jobs just like hetero people.

everyone likes to blame it on "society"

as if they aren't a part of society or something.
User avatar #41 - bjorntheberserk (01/18/2014) [-]
There was a quote that I forgot what it was from and have to paraphrase but essentially it said "When society encounters something different they try to change it if they cannot they destroy it."

Beauty and the Beast is story from 1740 that massively predates the anti-bullying or pro-gay rights movements.
User avatar #28 to #19 - friedgreenpomatoes (01/18/2014) [-]
The content is talking about the movie, which came out in 1991.

So no.

Except it was a French fairytale published by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740 before Disney got their hands on it...

Its almost like that was normal way back in the day.

People seem to forget that women used to be so worthless that fathers had to pay people to take their daughters from them I.E. dowry.

It's over-analyzing Disney movies time, everybody!
User avatar #46 to #37 - kousei (01/18/2014) [-]
your ignorance shows a terrible habit of under-analyzing Disney movies. Honestly, if you think something so strong and enduring can simply be taken at face value... Oh my. Perhaps you should wait till you're out of high school before you even try to understand the depth in true art. no, i don't mean this ******* "modern" art
