Let’s see a new twist on a classic tale

14 Nov

This video is interesting, because it holds to an age old fairy tale.  The bestial looking man who falls in love with a beautiful woman.  She eventually sees him for his heart and not his looks and returns his love.

So, why is it we never see the reverse?  Why don’t we ever get a woman with claw like fingernails and disfigurement of her face who falls in love with a man and eventually he sees past her physical flaws to what’s at her core.  Or for that matter, a woman with such features who falls in love with another woman.  Or, the bestial man who falls in love with a beautiful man.

It’s the age old Beauty and the Beast story, but it always has the same characters, and has the same results.  It’s not the results I’m so much questioning, but the characters.  Why can’t there be different interpretations of the characters.

Maybe, in time it’ll change.

I hope.
