What Is Wrong With "Beauty and the Beast"?

Why should we have so much hatred over a movie?

After the recent controversy about gay characters being in the new movie, "Beauty and the Beast," people are now wanting to boycott Walt Disney productions, especially this new movie. I can understand why people want to Boycott Disney, but I believe some people are taking it too far.

I understand that there is a scene where there are two guy's playing as gay people in the new movie. Yes, I believe if someone is going to recreate an old movie, they should make the movie on the same story line and characters. I know the writers and film directors want to make some scene's different, but when you redo the characters, then there is a problem.

I know several kids were looking forward to watching this new movie and now parents will not allow them to watch it because of a little scene. I understand that and if I had a small child, I would not let them watch it as well. I would simply show them the old cartoon movie, the one I grew up watching. If I had a middle school aged or teenager, I would let them watch it, but I would be with them when they watched it. I feel like this is a great lesson to learn about why you should follow the Bible and what you believe in, rather than what is on the media, in movies, and what everyone else is doing.

This movie is a great lesson to teach older kids about not being gay and how we should follow what our parents have showed us what to do and what not to do. Even if it is a new movie and your child wants to see it so bad, it does not mean you should let them. I grew up wanting to watch several movies when I was young, but my parents would tell me that I was too young and that someday I would eventually see it when I grew up. I realize this is a classic movie, but let them watch the one everyone grew up on! Just because it is new, does not mean that is the only movie around.

I am not trying to offend everyone who reads this, but I believe too many people are talking about this movie controversy too much. I believe everyone has the right to raise concern about what is going on when they believe it is the wrong thing. Unfortunately, we live in a world when someone does not get their way, they pout and complain about it. What would Jesus do in this situation? Would He still love the people that wrote the movie and who play the characters in the movie or would He hate them over something that He disagrees with? Jesus would more than likely state why that situation was wrong and than continue to love them.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
