The beginning of a movement.
Non-obvious celebrities making bold political moves is exactly what the world needs right now. It’s time we all re-activated our activism. Standby for more news like this.

I didn’t realize until recently how twisted my favorite story as a child - Beauty and the Beast - truly is. It’s the true origin of Stockholm syndrome. And, perhaps partially to blame for little girls feeling like they can “change” someone who is brutal and mean to them (later adult women feel cruel behavior is merely a shield for a hurt and vulnerable soul who hasn’t been able to properly express himself. As this article argues well). Bringing up vulnerability and teaching empathy in classrooms is an important next step our evolving societal dialogue around gender equality.

The correlation of the two could be talked about more, I believe.
