People Are Trying To Ban ‘Grease’ And I Just Don’t Get It

‘Grease’ is one of my all-time favorite movies and seeing people trying to take it out has me pretty bothered. Can we just cancel “cancel culture” already? Can we all just accept that we don’t all have the same feelings about things?

Paramount Pictures

First, let’s remember that ‘Grease’ came out in the late 1970s. It is a great musical that we love to watch as a family. Why is it just now an issue? Years and years as a favorite for so many people.

It was screened by the BBC on Boxing Day, and apparently, people now feel the need to over-analyze the movie. Y’all, seriously… it’s been out for like 40 something years.

‘misogynistic’, ‘rapey’ ‘slut-shaming’

Just a few of the terms used by critics recently to describe the movie were ‘misogynistic’, ‘rapey’ and ‘slut-shaming’. Some of them have started calling for the removal of ‘Grease’.

My daughters and I see this movie in a completely different way. Sandy totally stood up for herself throughout the movie. She did what she wanted to. She knocked Danny down to reality as well.

In fact, when she did dress up at the end of the movie… that was her choice. She then told him that he better shape up!

Also, let’s talk about Rizzo! She smokes, drinks, and does not care what others think of her. She did her own thing in a movie that was set in the 50s!

If this movie successfully gets banned and canceled, then you can expect many of our favorite classics to go the same route. Thankfully, there are just as many people defending the movie as there are bashing it.

Don’t like something? Just don’t watch it! So easy!

Yeah, this is news to me. Who’s trying to “ban” it? These days if you express a different opinion from the general public you get shot down and labeled as part of the “cancel culture.” Sounds like the 50s, when people were expected to fit into predetermined molds. Huh. Just like in the movie! Who cares how anyone feels about this movie? It’s completely unimportant.

Not everyone feels the same about everything. Everyone is different we aren’t robots we have our own opinions. Stop banding things that you don’t like just bc you hate it and look down on it doesn’t mean other people do. Stop taking stuff away that people like just bc you hate don’t watch it simple as that.

Leave Grease alone!! Why should it be cancelled because YOU don’t care for it? What about those of US that enjoy it? Your “rights” are more important than ours? This in and of itself is divisive. It was a movie. It was a MUCH happier time and an escape for those of us that grew up watching it. Get over yourself, get on with your life, and please STOP with trying to bend everyone to your will. Guaranteed it won’t end well for you.

Don’t like it, then don’t watch it! Let the rest of us have freedom of choice!
