Beauty and the Beast but they’re lesbians

And the Beast is still this 8 foot tall hulking monster with horns and massive claws and fangs and when she turns back into human she’s still buff as shit and her girlfriend is small and they open a library together also the candle and the clock are gay

This is what people mean when they talk about the “gay agenda”

if you want a story about gay people make your own don’t steal someone elses idea

Alright, listen up you sorry excuse for a burnt crepe

The animated version of Beauty and the Beast is dedicated “To our friend Howard, who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful.”

Why?

Because the lyricist for the movie was Howard Ashman, a gay man who died of AIDS, only a few months before the release of the movie.

The version of the story you love has always had queerness in it.

It’s a story written by a gay man dying of AIDS, of someone who was cursed, whose time was running out and their death was coming, and the world wanted to hasten it along instead of helping, instead of loving him and understanding that he was never truly a monster.

It’s never belonged to you, not all the way. The soul of the Beast is queer.

“Oh, but the original version of the fairy-tale”

Fine, fuck you.

Gay version of the Little Mermaid, then.

You know, the one which was written by Hans Christian Andersen, a gay man who watched the love of his life marry a woman.

The original version story ends in tragedy, but with the idea that while the mermaid could not be with the man she loved, she does eventually gain a soul and find peace, when he was a gay man in a time when that felt denied to him.

Disney changed the ending of the Little Mermaid, the lyrics of which were also written by Howard Ashman, and gave her a true happy ending.

Now, let’s honour the inherent queerness of the story and acknowledge that we are in a time when gay people can be happy, they can be with the ones who we love, and make that the story.

Damn right that’s part of gay agenda. Gays in space. Gay mermaids. Gay Beasts. Gays goddamn everywhere there’s a good story, because it’s about damn time.

Watch as we take over every story that you thought belonged to you and make them delightfully, blatantly, queer, just to fuck with you, specifically.

Happily ever after.

Also:

Fairy tales and Shakespeare cannot be stolen.  (An argument can be made, given the way Shakespeare magpied his way through folklore, given the way his narratives have slithered into Western consciousness, that at this point, they’re the same thing.)  They are works transformed by the telling.

Would you tell Disney they stole all their stories?  How about Robin McKinley?  Stephen Sondheim?  Me?  All the people who work in fairy tales, who use them as building blocks, as common ground to set a stage, we’re not stealing, we’re continuing a grand and human tradition.

This isn’t “the gay agenda.”  If anything, this is “the straight agenda.”  Laying claim to a thing that human nature itself says has to change and shift and flux and grow to survive, and saying “oh, no, if you change this one thing, this load-bearing thing, the story is destroyed.”

Fuck that.  Ain’t nobody strong enough to kill these stories.

The straight agenda: aggressively make everything straight and then accuse everyone else of being the ones with an agenda

I want small children to think I am either a goddess or a faerie but I want grown men to fear me

Blue hair

Honestly this is how colored hair works. Adult men automatically assume that I have loud opinions and will talk back to them (they are correct and have learned from experience), but children compliment me all the time.

i feel like in myths goddesses and fairies already have that relationship trope with men and children

Confirming the blue hair thing here.

Kids think I’m magical, old ladies often go “oh, I wish I’d had your courage”, old men glare at me like I have two heads, and then glare at my father like somehow they expect him to control his unruly 33 year old.

It’s awesome.

Pair it with glitter and winged eyeliner and the effect is about 200% stronger. Speaking from experience.

100% me and @mermaidqueen

The amount I want to try this now is 400% what it was before.

Friend, I’m gunna tell you this right now, DO IT. Take. The. Leap. Your hair will always grow out and can be re-dyed if you hate it. I started dyeing my hair red in high school and haven’t looked back. 

When I had blue hair I never got catcalled, when it happened fairly regularly where I was at the time. I got dirty looks a few times, but mostly people either afraid to actually look at me, children staring in amazement, people whispering where they thought I wouldn’t notice (mostly children to parents), or people coming up and complimenting me.

One man stopped a conversation he was having on his phone to compliment me twice in a store. First he was like, “woah! I love your hair!” and told his friend about it, then he stopped again when we crossed aisles again and was saying, “I just can’t get over how pretty that color looks! And it matches your eyes! That’s amazing! Have a good one!” Another guy stopped me on campus to tell me it was his favorite color and he has shoes that match and maybe he should dye his hair too. Just the most innocent compliments that usually women only get from other women.

Men who don’t like it are going to be too afraid of you to say anything, because if you are bold enough to have bright blue hair, you’re bold enough to tell them off.

i’ve had blue, purple, and pink hair. this is definitely all true. old ladies and little kids love it, bitter grown men look at you like you’re the devil.

When you encounter the same little detail in fanfic after fanfic and you realize you genuinely can’t remember if that thing is actually canon or if it’s just something fandom made up.
