"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
Slurpeez! Video! GAH
Gaston was like my least favorite villain in all of Disney. I hated the way he talked to Belle, implying that because she is a woman she shouldn’t be reading and should just get married. I was five and KNEW that I would never be talked to that way. (Baby feminist RG)
I know that quite a few of my issues with Hook stem from how he treats women and being very uncomfortably reminded of how I was once treated. Like when Hook told Emma that if she really wanted to thank him for saving Charming, she should kiss him just had horrible memories of my ex telling me I needed to do things to prove that I loved him. The level of subjective interpretation for each of these characters is so wide and varied.
