les fous

I just watched Beauty and The Beast.

1) It was amazing.
2) Even though I knew what was going to happen, it made me scared throughout the whole thing.
3) I cried a lot.
4) I sang a lot.
5) I was torn quite often. I hated Gaston’s character for obvious reasons but then at the same time I loved him because Luke Evans is one of my favorite actors of all time. And his VOICE.
6) LE FOU AND STANLEY.
7) Audra McDonald is queen.
8) Baby Chip oh my god.
9) I pity anyone else in the theater cause I kept freaking out.

That is all.

Vivre avec quelqu'un de malade mentalement c'est dur ?
Alors deux comment on fait ? On s'éloignent ? On demande de l'aide ? On les laissent tomber ? On les aident du mieux qu'on peux ? On essayent de les comprendre ? On devient fou ?
Mon père et ma sœur sont malade , je peux vous dire qu'au quotidien c'est pas facile et qu'il y a beaucoup de disputes.

Why lgbt people are mad about Le Fou in case it wasn’t obvious
  • The first gay Disney character is literally named The Fool
  • He’s unrequitedly in love with a straight man
  • A straight man who bullies and abuses him
  • Le Fou will 99% likely NOT get a happy ending
  • He’s being played by someone known to be straight
  • His sexuality is basically a joke
  • His sexuality is likely to be the butt of a joke the entire movie
  • We already know the character will be the butt of the joke even if his sexuality itself isn’t
  • His entire role in the movie is to be evil and stupid comic relief and boost Gaston’s self-esteem 
  • He’s described as “confused” 
  • Queercoding villains and Disney go together like peanut butter and jelly 
  • Disney is patting itself on the back for all of this
  • His character description is stereotypical
  • Le Fou being gay for Gaston is already something of a cultural joke
  • He’s barely in the movie
  • He’s the only gay person in a love story, he will end up alone and evil
  • People have been saying how you could improve the story by making it gay for years and of all the ideas this is the worst possible option for picking a gay character
  • We coulda had lesbian Beast
  • Kids will have this as their first gay Disney character
  • For some kids this will be their first gay character period
  • It will be their ONLY gay Disney character
  • They chose to make a shot for shot remake of the animated movie with the most whitebread actors and the only thing they want to change up is making the evil fool gay
  • Disney could get away with any kind of lgbt character because they are a monolith yet they choose this

disney has some real nerve for this le fou nonsense when howard ashman saved the disney film studios from financial ruin with his own two hands in 1989 & ensured they would be around long enough to make these high budget remakes decades later. like full offense disney if ashman hadn’t 1) saved your company and 2) provided you with the formula you now attempt to replicate you wouldn’t be here raking in millions in profit with rote imitations of his work 20 yrs later. “why does disney need to have gay characters?” bc the man who gave you your entire childhood and disney the longevity to make ugly remakes of his movies would’ve wanted there to be gay characters and not just gay coded narratives by the year of 2017, THAT’S WHY. 

Everyone keeps on saying Disney is taking a big risk with Le Fou being gay and I feel like people don’t understand what a risk is.

First of all, this is Disney you’re talking about. Last year, they had seven major blockbusters that killed it at the box office. Do you really think that a company that is making money in their sleep is in any danger? No really, do you really think Disney is any danger of losing money?

Secondly, taking a risk has to be…well risky. Le Fou being gay isn’t a risk because Le Fou is not a major player within the story of Beauty and the Beast. Hell, I don’t even think Le Fou showed up in Kingdom Hearts despite Beast and Belle playing a huge role in the game. So many people don’t even know who he is. A risk would be making the Beast a woman and having a lesbian romance. Or having Belle be a black woman and Beast be a Chinese man. Those are risks. There is nothing risky about the whole Le Fou thing.

Can people please stop acting like Disney is this tiny ass company that is trying their best? You don’t have to coddle them.

Most iconic moments from Beauty and the Beast (2017)
  • Le Fou trying to spell Gaston - G-A-S-T-i think there’s another T but it’s occurred to me I’m illiterate and have never attempted to spell it before wow this is hard 
  • Belle turning down Gaston’s dinner invite and he’s like “Oh, you’re busy” and Belle just says “No” like bitch apply cold water to your burn.
  • Cogsworth’s wife turning up at the end and him wishing he could turn back into a clock
  • Beast’s “makeover” to impress Belle- that makeup though 
  • “Have you thought about growing a beard” and that grOWL AFTERWARDS
  • Ewan McGregor and his terrible French accent
  • Beast literally taking Belle doWN with that big ass snowball 
  • HAHA WHAT WEST WING THERE IS NO WEST WING WE’RE GOING TO THE EAST WING OR AS I LIKE TO CALL IT THE ONLY WING 
  • Those three women that keep pining over Gaston turn up and Le Fou leans in and stage whispers “Never gonna happen” 
  • Those three dudes getting Schuyler sister makeovers and the third one owning it
  • Everyone forgetting about Gaston at the end like did his corpse disappear or is it laying on the grounds somewhere and everyone just left him to rot
  • Le Fou trying to comfort Gaston by telling him to think back to the war where he killed all those dudes
  • Maurice: Hey look a nice meal thank you kind person. Maurice: A FUCKING TALKING CUP WHAT AM I HIGH I’M LEAVING GOODBYE
  • Le Fou being concerned that the castle has ghosts when a literal beast lives in it
  • The Beast giving Belle a library just to prove she has horrible taste in literature
  • “Have you read all of these books???” “No, some of them are in Greek” and Belle being all “Was that a joke are you trying to joke omg”
  • Gaston being French and having no clue what Je Ne Sais Quoi means
  • Gaston complimenting himself in the mirror like “you are the most beautiful I’m not done with you yet”
  • MR POTTS AND MRS POTTS AT THE END THEY’RE SO CUTE OMG
  • Disney actually acknowledging that not all relationships are between one white male and one white female like there’s love all over the place in this movie BLESS 

It pisses me off so much that countless people are going to see BATB and then returning and going ‘uwu all those hateful angry gays were wrong!! le fou was so great!!’ like

1) even if, magically, le fou was a fantastic character and fantastic rep, it doesn’t change the fact that people ABSOLUTELY can be wary of Disney fucking up yet another thing

and 2) le fou’s gayness was a joke when it was explicit, but he still wasn’t allowed to be truly gay - I went with my straight family and they all missed EVERYTHING. he dances with a transmisogynistic joke guy at the end of the movie for like four seconds - ACCIDENTALLY - his affection/care for gaston is a joke when gaston isn’t manipulating him with it, and the funny gay sidekick desperately in love with a mean straight guy isn’t… good rep at all

finally 3) gay actors being in the movie means shit if they’re playing straights, especially when the gay character is a joke and there’s an awful transmisogynistic joke

all of y'all can shut up
