What I find hilarious is that for all the really morally bankrupt parts of the original story (I freely admit Ive never seen Disney's previous nor any other modern adaption) it's the allusion to same sex attraction (or whatever) is what all these self righteous outraged idiots find as the problem with it.
Consider that this story was written in the 1700s.
A rich merchant loses everything but then finds out that maybe some of his wealth survives. Before he goes after the remainder of his riches he asks each of his kids what they want as a gift for him to bring upon his return. The sweetest (and hottest, naturally) of his daughters asks for a rose. A rose because they do not grow where they live and are rare. (culturally, flowers were a expensive commodity in the 1700~1800s and often were used as "treasure" in real life, let alone fairy tales)
When he arrives to claim what remains of his fortune he discovers it's been seized to pay his debts and that he remains poor. On his journey home he gets lost in the forest during a storm and happens upon the beast's castle and takes refuge. There he is clothed and fed and kept warm and when he goes to depart he tries to steal the finest rose in the garden for his daughter.
Dude gets caught, beast wants to kill him for being a thief (unremarkable in the 1700s), dude begs for his life and explains he only wanted it for his daughter, beast says ok give it to her but then she must come live with me, dude says okey-dokey she's yours, dude sends his hot daughter to go live with beast, beast totally woos and nails her.
TL;DR: Thief gets caught and trades his daughter like property to get out of the rightful punishment, beast lives with his basically forced captive and hits on her till she gives in and gives it up, her prize for being a useful commodity towards everyone else's end is to get a (eventually) good looking captor who traded for her.
But the real problem with this adaption is the allusion that one of the characters likes or loves someone of the same sex.
This story, like a lot of old-as-fuck tales, are plenty fucked up to begin with and there's plenty to be "morally outraged" about if one wanted to be consistent and without hypocrisy. Especially for a tale that's held up like some great story for kids, but that never seems to even register on their radar. It's fucking idiotic.
