Hold up. So the “gay” moment is a person who dresses femininely and Loufoo having a “well hello” moment on the dance floor? I’m having a hard time seeing how that’s even “gay” considering a person’s gender expression and identity are in no way linked to their sexual identity–they are two different things. The only way it could be considered gay is if the person dressed more femininely states categorically they are a man. Otherwise you can freely assume they identify as a woman–making the scene with Loufoo heterosexual not homosexual. Given Doug and other critics state Loufoo has no… Read more »

There is something of an on-going suggestion of Loufoo having sort an adolescent crush on Gaston (he calls him my ‘companion’ at one point). No is ever presented as expectedly gay, bi, or trans. My feeling is that if word of God (read directer) that he’s supposed to be gay, than he is in universe. He may have been dancing with a women because he couldn’t find a man would dance with him at first. It’s not like only straight people will ever dance with someone of the opposite sex. BTW while I share the frustration of women being judged… Read more »

I have to disagree about Loufoo. He actually mentioned being rejected by women for being “too clingy”, implying that he has tried playing the field.

I certainly don’t hold a distinctly negative opinion like Doug and Rob, but then I got out of it what I was expecting, which was a throwback to a Disney classic that I vaguely remember but not that well, a nonsensical musical in… Read more »

That is some evidence to support this. Though even if he has made advances to women in his past he could still be in denial of his true feelings or maybe bisexual. I suppose you could interpret it any one of three ways and wouldn’t make matter to his character arc. At the very least he’s has an arc, something that wasn’t in the animated version.

Beauty and the Beast isn’t one of my favorite Disney movies. Despite the fact that I’ve seen almost all of the live action movies and I liked most of them, I’m skipping this one. However, Maleficent can go screw itself. Although, I’ve never heard anyone talk a lot about Emma Watson’s beauty. That’s actually not something I associate with her. Lastly, I don’t think the whole beast thing is odd for the sole fact that the curse is broken and he’s human by the end.

“Lastly, I don’t think the whole beast thing is odd for the sole fact that the curse is broken and he’s human by the end.”

Well that and the fact that in fairy tales, sex tends to only exist implicitly (if it even exist at all) with the appearance of children.
