We will never hear Lady Gaga or any other pop star discussing the oppression of 52% of the world, it is just not glamorous at all, and if you do discuss it, you will be called “bitter” and “negative”.

  1. she is a tool of the fascion industry, a drag king.

  2. I have to disagree with you a bit here, Roseanne.
    Yes, I wish the Gagster would speak up as much about women’s rights as she does about gay rights.
    But she’s not silent on the subject, like most other pop stars. If you’ve watched it, her Bad Romance video is actually all about sex trafficking. And in the end, the woman wins over the sex-starved men who try to claim her — which I think is an affirming message that we can put an end to this type of abuse.
    But of course, I think you’d agree with me in saying that it’d be even better if she DID try to help put an end to the abuse by taking concrete steps to help solve the problem and raise awareness.
    And by doing more than displaying just a stylized version of events that are beyond grotesque in real life.
    I wouldn’t knock her, though, for at least raising some awareness of the subject through her music video, which has about 400 million views on youtube, and so has reached a lot of people. (Here’s to hoping that the message actually got through to more than just 5 of them.)
    She’s a very politically conscious star, actually, and has worked vigilantly to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, give funding to homeless LGBT youth, and donate to AIDS research with her makeup line, with 100% of the profits going to charity.
    Not too bad, I think. Especially compared to others, who use their power mostly to get Barbies named after them.
    She’s already taking on quite a lot politically, so who knows, maybe when things start improving gay-wise, she’ll move her sights on to other issues, like women’s rights.
    There are definitely a lot more women than there are gay people, so maybe she’s just warming up…
    …or maybe it’s just her plan to turn all women gay. And then she can help everyone.
    Genius.
    Thanks for reading!
