I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while now, but I didn’t know how to go about it. I know some people won’t be interested because of their own views and feelings. And that’s fine. But please don’t turn this into a hate page where we all gripe, argue, and complain. I just want to put out how I feel.
It all really started with the new “Beauty and the Beast” movie. I was greatly looking forward to the movie. I was excited that Emma Watson was playing Bell. I remember thinking what a perfect fit! I was even proud of Emma when she refused to wear a corset! Later I heard after the movie came out that in the movie is a gay character. I was appalled really. I mean this is “Beauty and the Beast”! A real live version of the animated Disney movie designed for kids! For kids! And yet they had to put that kind of twist into it. I say no, completely inappropriate. And it is, it really is. I wouldn’t want my child seeing that in every kid movie! Really, that’s what it seems to be coming to. I mean the “Power Ranger” movie even has a gay character in it! Hello, the show is just stupid. Though it could be great, but its not and its designed for kids! Again kids!
How are kids suppose to make their own decision if it’s thrust upon them through movies such as these. Not that I believe it is an open decision. It’s like someone is trying to turn everyone into being gay. Why? I’m Catholic, but I don’t go around trying to convert everyone into becoming Catholic! It’s just not appropriate. If someone want’s to make a movie with a gay character in it, then make it a gay movie and say that up front. I’m tired of people just slipping that kind of character or scene into movies. And yes, I heard that it was a very small and minor part. Frankly and bluntly I just don’t care.
Does this mean I’m going to distance and ignore people that are gay? No! That’s not the Christian way. All I’ll ask, and I know I’ve said this before, is that we don’t talk about that part of his or her life. Unless they want to get religious about it. I’ve had great conversations with those that are gay and they were super nice. Sadly due to this view I have, this belief, I lost some one that was becoming a friend. She wasn’t gay herself, she just supported it where as I don’t. But it would’t have bothered me if we stayed friends.
So now I’m making a stand, a hard one. I will not from here on out be watching movies or shows that have gay scenes or characters in it. Mentioned fine, but an acting scene. No. That means no “Beauty and the Beast, Power Rangers, the newest Star Trek movie”. I now regret watching “Chasing Life.” Granted I did fast forward through all those scenes, but I’m not going to do it any more. In shows like “House”, I’ll just skip that episode, not fast forward to the end, and skip to the next episode. I’m saying that because “House” isn’t based off of a gay character or life style. I recall only two episodes and I pretty much fast forward to the end. Again, no more. I’m tired of feeling like someone is trying to integrate me.
I’m not sure what movies are coming out that I really want to see and have gay characters or scenes in it, but I will keep my stand, my promise.
