In our society, we like to focus on the superficial. We focus on material possessions and aesthetic qualities rather than morals and values. As discussed in class, the film, Beauty, and the Beast, displays an underlying standard all too familiar in our society, appearance is imperative. While Belle falls in love with the personality of the Beast, the movie can not have closure until the beautiful woman ends up with a beautiful man. The majority of Disney movies, similar to Beauty and the Beast, revolve around western conceptions of beauty. The demographic of these films are typically young girls, introducing an unrealistic standard of beauty for prepubescent children. It is ridiculous that society has such an obsession with presentation and appearance. It makes me wonder what the world would be like if people were taught that interactions and morals were more important than appearance. Through these films, which can easily be distinguished as gender propaganda, women and men are directed into certain gender roles and told to act/look specific ways in order to be accepted.
