    Was the girl in Brave a princess? I forget, but I don't think she was.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Re: Movies! The Last Jedi: Ragnarok

    I stand corrected. The Brave girl was a princess. My bad.

    The Circle:

    Movie starring Emma Watson/Tom Hanks about a worldwide tech company. Frankly, I liked it better when it was the documentary called "We Live In Public" (which I HIGHLY recommend). It's basically "today's world for dummies," where the company in question (The Circle) is pretty much Facebook/Google.

    Predictable ending, very blunt "message" in the movie, worth a time-kill at best. Meh.

    You guys realize these criticisms of Disney go back long time right? We didnt just make them up on the fly?

    The Brave girl was happy in her own life and didn't need a man to have value. So Fox & Friends called her a man-hating lesbian.

    Disney is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of the world's children, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money, but what they do is really high quality.

    It's true. I saw it on the internet. Some blogger named Kep reported it.

    There was a great deal of discussion among the right wing literati that Brave:

    1. Was programming girls to hate men and be TEH LEZBEANS
    2. Devalued marriage and motherhood by having Merida reject her mother's life choices
    3. Was anti-Christian because, and I swear I'm not making this up, it has a witch in it

    I can't say for certain that the derp extended to F&F but I'd guess it's a pretty safe bet because that sort of pearl-clutching is their thing.

    There was also a deeper fundy concern about "rebellion," which best I can figure out is a term of art that covers challenging The Way Things Are, which is children's subordination to their parents and women's subordination to men. It's one of those places where Dominionist Christians are indistinguishable from Al Qaeda.

    One of my co-workers is a very nice lady, but she's a religious right voter. She doesn't like Harry Potter because, and I shiat you not, it doesn't contain any references to God, even while talking about muggles.

    Never mind it's a fictional world with magic and wizards and a clear battle between good and evil underlying the whole thing, the fact there weren't any explicit references to Jesus or God was just abhorrent to her.

    Celebrating Xmas in all of the books, and a few mentions of Easter weren't Xian enough for her, in a series of books completely unrelated to the subject?

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    I remember reading the memoir of an Iranian physicist who told the story of how her students' high school textbooks and lesson plans were reviewed and rewritten by religious authorities after the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The substance didn't change but you had to teach, say, quantum theory by saying "the position and momentum of physical objects can never be established with perfect precision except as they exist in the divine mind," or "the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle must be greater than or equal to the length of the remaining side, in conformity with the perfection of Allah's creation." And like that.

    Fundies are all the same, whether they're thumping the Bible, the Koran, or whatever other gobbledygook somebody millenia ago pulled out of his as-s to move product. It's all the same crap.

    Aside from the holidays, there's also the fact that Ollivanders was founded in 382 BC. Gosh, I wonder what BC stands for...

    Frozen got the same treatment as well, because Anna is unfrozen from the love of her sister Elsa and not the kiss of a man, so you know, lesbians.

    And Iíll shall cite my sources.
