Lightyear Movie and Critics about Gay Scenes
I’m torn with this film because it’s more straight people doing gay content, and it’s also being banned in certain places. While I hate to see anything LGBTQIA banned anywhere, I’m also not fond of straights doing gay content. But I’m not throwing shade. It’s not my genre and it’s difficult to figure out how it’s all going down.
Actor Chris Evans who is very straight is now speaking up about the gay characters in Lightyear because it’s been banned in several parts of the world. I’m not sure if he’s playing gay or not. They don’t say.
The actor Chris Evans, who voices the main character in the new Pixar animated movie Lightyear, has applauded its depiction of a gay couple, saying those who react negatively should be disregarded.
Here’s more. As a sidenote, actress Patricia Heaton is irritated that Tim Allen wasn’t chosen to reprise his role as Buzz. She Tweeted about it.
Gay Men Talk About Body-Shaming and Eating Disorders
Although I don’t believe in any kind of looks-shaming, I will admit that I’m one of those gay men who has always been conscious of my body. I rarely eat carbs, I do a cardio workout every night, and I never eat pizza or donuts.
With that said, this discussion about gay men and body image has been going on for decades.
“People internalize, ‘I have to create this body image. I have to live up to this. I have to fight for this. I have to strive for this. I have to starve for this. I have to almost die for this in order for me to have my moment of worth here,'” said Coffie.
Here’s the rest. I think that’s a bit dramatic. Working out, eating the right food, and trying to maintain a strong healthy body isn’t about starving or being close to death. It’s more about choice. The body-shaming is the thing I don’t like. Just don’t do it. Don’t call anyone out for their looks or their bodies. You never know what motivates people. Food, for many people, is a way to deal with anxiety.
