I have some furry friends.  I dont think that is how they were created.

I think furries are created by sitting people in front of a screen which plays Disney films in a loop, of the sort that has talking animals or anthromorphic animals, until their brain melts from the sugar overload.

Heh the nostalgia of thinking there was such a thing as a good Disney movie, so long ago...

Disney movies began to suck once Walt Disney died. Any film that originated after his death is crap (I say "originated" because Walt was involved in "The Aristocats", my personal favorite, even though he died before its completion).

1980s Disney was meh. 1990s Disney was pretty awful. 21st century Disney is downright repulsive.

1970s Disney was a pretty fucked up time, too, as I recall. 

Everything was voiced by Hee Haw stars.

I think many movies of the so called Disney renaissance are actually quite ok if not great.

It was past the late 90s that it all crashed and burned.

I think the 70s and 80s is considered the decline of Disney. Don Bluth had broken away and it was predicted that Disney's dominance of animated films was a thing of the past. 

The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast were in the 90s, and were the Disney renaissance. Remember all the controversy about the ballroom scene in B&TB being digital? 

I'm talking about the period where they came out with Robin Hood, The Rescuers, The R Down Under, Pete's Dragon, Bedknobs and Broomsticks. 

Their live action children's movies were the only thing that got them through that period, I think.

Maybe it's like Saturday Night Live, where everyone agrees that it jumped the shark but no one agrees when.

I can agree on this. 

And evidently they still have a huge fanbase today who thinks things are just great.

Or, it just seems like it..  Marketing to make it look like 'you' are the idiot who cant handle good film and narratives.. Like 'you' are in the minority, when really 'you' are not.

Just going off personal contacts, sometimes i wonder if this is not really the case.. The truth may not be as it seems..

Most of the people I know are "I just want to be entertained," people who don't CARE about the political things we care about. 

Even the political people... my former boss was a HUGE Trump fan, and was SUPER upset about the shit the NFL was pulling. He still never stopped buying tickets to the Cardinals. He TALKED a lot about boycotting them - but in the end, his desire for bread and circuses was stronger than his desire not to bend the knee. 

I am convinced this is *most* people. We are the outliers - and there are not enough of us to matter - and Disney, the NFL, Starbucks, Target - they know it. 

Convenience wins. Facebook is another example of this. Just a big, woke Supermall. 

They make Spiderman a black trans-girl and it still draws in billions in global box office - they don't *care* about what WE think. Because most people just want to go drop $15 for a ticket, $30 for popcorn, snacks and a tub of soda, and sit their brainlessly consuming The Fast and Furious 25. Big explosions, lots of fist fights, some gunfire... and fast cars. They could care less about the messaging behind the story. 

We're swimming up current against an endless tide of idiots.
