Sending the Wrong Message
Disney does it again! When we were little, we were so busy being enamored by the stunning visuals, the beautiful gowns, the catchy tunes, and the charming characters, that we didn’t really pay attention to some crazy details in Beauty and the Beast. Apparently, the moral of this fairytale is that outer beauty is not as important as inner beauty.
Fair enough and we agree that someone who is kind is more attractive than someone who is good-looking with a dreadful personality. But did we forget that the Beast actually locked Beauty up in his castle? It’s starting to sound more like Stockholm syndrome and less like a fairytale now, isn’t it?
