My daughter loves pink too. I never cared for pink so when a friend bought my daughter a pink outfit back when I was still pregnant with her, my friend apologized and said, "I forgot you don't like pink". And I had to assure her that it was just a personal preference and not a philosophical one. I said that if my daughter grew up to want pink everything I would be OK with that. I just didn't want a PINK!!!! nursery and everything pink, pink, pink. I always loved purple so even though I wasn't a girly-girl I was still girlish and proud to be a girl. I wasn't a natural-born mother. Any dolls I did have were my 'friends' and we went on adventures together.The only thing good about this Barbie movie is the fact that all sorts of businesses are putting out pink stuff as a cash grab. Pink is my favorite color and it's been shunned so much over the last few years it's sometimes hard to find pink things anymore. Well, yay for the dumb movie to give me some pink options again... at least for a little while! I really don't understand why someone hasn't figured out that we all just want entertaining movies without agendas. Disney is losing money, but compare it to something like the Mario movie, which didn't have a agenda, and made a ton of movie worldwide! (I haven't seen it either, but I saw an article about all of this hoopla!)
Is it Pride Week again where you all are at? We got done with Pride Month in June, and in BC Canada here it's PRIDE WEEK again!!!! complete with parades and propaganda on the news hour reminding everyone how important it all is. I thought I was free and clear once June was over but no, the parades are on again lest we forget!!!!Just wait until October and the breast cancer awareness pink stuff takes over everything.
My wife saw this movie last night. I just asked her about this topic and yes, there is some she said, but it wasn't blatant, in your face type stuff.
We've had pride flags and whatnot in town (Alberta) also!Is it Pride Week again where you all are at?

I blinked and the rainbow warriors are parading all over again. NOT FAIR. But seriously is that happening everywhere or just the lefter most province of Canada.
CS Lewis really nailed the spirit of the age for the final end times in his last Narnia book, "The Last Battle". I don't know what his exact eschatology was but he really nailed a lot of the prevailing attitudes and how the faithful would be small in number and one of the biggest problems would be that those who hate the evil too would be too scared to actually come and help the faithful. And the faithful kept on "occupying" with the hope that Aslan could come bounding in to save the day if he chose to. If not, they would die with honour and see each other in Aslan's country. I think about that part a lot.Pride week really should be when Aslan commences His cleansing of evil.
Narnia fans will be cheering!
