Lady Gaga Nominated for “Great Whore of Babylon” Award By Artopia 444

Lady Gaga’s new release sounds so much like a 1980s era Madonna songs: “Like A Prayer” and “Vogue”  it’s practically a “knock off.”


Maybe Lady Gaga is the incarnate Great Whore of Babylon. She fits the biblical description in every way.

Lady Gaga needs to either come out of the closet, and come up with the courage to admit she’s gay, or stop pretending to be gay by including herself in gay culture by “self-nominated association.”

There is nothing I despise more than make-believe gay people. The only reason Lady Gaga is all “out front” for gay marriage rights and other legal issues affecting gays and lesbians is because they fill the stadiums and the cash till for her CD releases. Lady Gaga is not gay, she won’t admit to anything more than “kissing a girl” [big deal ] in interviews, but when she gave her little speech in the link below, she refers to herself via implied semantics as part of American gay culture. Lady Gaga may have claimed gay people as “her people” but I sure as hell don’t claim her. She’s off the charts bizarre, and I think what she does is corrupting to young girls in America, far worse than anything Madonna ever did back in the 80s and 90s. Gaga is a cheap “Madonna knock off” and nothing more. It’s the most tedious thing in the world to have to sit through her “political speeches” where she claims herself as a leader of gay culture. Gaga has never known for a single split second in her multi-million dollar protected elitist world the kind of insults, suffering, presecution and hatred on a day to day basis that ACTUAL gays and lesbians go through. She has NO idea. Her politics have everything to do with keeping those stadiums filled with young gay paying screaming fans. She’s “gay positive politically” for the cash it brings in, and nothing more.

 

As a lesbian, the ongoing sell job, the “Lady Gaga American big media game show” intrigues me, but not in a good way at all. I see the whole thing [Gaga overkill in big media magazines, TV, Glee’s fawning over Gaga’s new music, the ongoing hype] as an out-picturing of the Illuminati owned media dream to flood Americans with ever increasingly depraved ideas, images, TV shows, music, people, and concepts until the average American no longer is able to discern fundamental good from evil. I’m quite sure that’s the goal of Illuminati owned mass media outlets, and has been forover 40 years now. Everything I observe in TV and pop culture media outlets confirms this theory.

Big Media has now really stepped up the debauchery factor by choosing Lady Gaga as their high priestess of visual disgust. I officially nominate Gaga as the personal incarnation of the Great Whore of Babylon. She fits the bill in every way.

I’ve had several interesting conversations recently with other gay friends about what most straight Americans think that the “gay lifestyle” is all about.It’s widely known that even though Gaga is sexually ambiguous, she enjoys her self-appointed role as “spokes woman” for gays, lesbians, transgendered and bisexual people.

Tragically, most every straight American I have ever met or talked to still mostly carries the typical notion that gay people are all petty, narcissistic, exhibitionists who parade around in next to nothing, watch the most trivial TV and films, talk Hollywood gossip incessantly, that they know more about fashion, make-up and pop culture than mostly anything else.

Why shouldn’t straight America feel this way? That’s been the classic Big Media and Hollywood portrayal of gays and lesbians for as long as I can recall, since way before the years of TV’s “Will and Grace.” Little or nothing is known of the millions of quiet, conservative, hard working, self effacing American gays and lesbians who would just as soon blend into the woodwork of American life, than to stand out.

They feel this way and live like other “normal” people do, for the very reasons that millions of other straight Americans are grossed out by gays!  Conservative gays and lesbians have NO desire to be affiliated with the screaming, parading, near nude, in-your-face Hollywood narcissist liberal versions of their peers that we are constantly being force fed by the media. I actually failed to be able to sit through one entire episode of “Glee” because, like 98% of pop culture TV, it just bored me to tears. I am friends with and know hundreds and hundreds of other gay men and women who feels exactly the way I do. We inwardly groan every time we have to witness yet another mindless episode of “Ellen”, which I also have a hard time sitting through, and we groan every time Lady Gaga comes out with yet another revolting music video where murder is glorified, or some other wickedness that she wallows in is peddled as “high art” to the brainwashed masses.

There is a secret subculture of gays and lesbians who refuse to participate in the present mass media orgy of:  “Don’t you just love those wild naked banal, and self obsessed, narcissistic gays?! Wow –  they sure know how to throw a party! I wanna be just like them!”

I personally cannot get far enough AWAY from that message and that mentality. I might represent about 70 to 80% of how gays actually feel about the way we are represented in the media, but I don’t really know. If anyone has recently done any studies on any of this mass media typecasting of me and my gay / lesbians fellows, I am not aware of it. But I was sick of Lady Gaga and her PR antics a year ago. I am way past sick of having her as a self appointed “mass media representative” for the American gay community.

Lady Gaga is just exactly the kind of bad press and disastrous PR that the American gay community DOES NOT need. It’s no wonder that many Christian fundamentalist still think that gays and lesbians are intrinsticly “demonic.” Lady Gaga, as a self-appointed “spokes person for American gays” is more than just a little bit actually demonic herself. She certainly creeps me out and I have no problem admitting that. Normalcy is sexy. And there is nothing “normal” about Gaga, her stage act, her opinions, her philosophies or her aura, in general. I find the woman more than a little bit on the “intrinsically psychotic” side of the spectrum.

Just between me and “she”, Lady Gag Me is so FIRED. She does not represent anything that I want to be affiliated with as a gay woman, or as a woman, period. I want nothing to do  with whatever it is that she represents, which I am pretty sure is just her own narcissistic self image and the advancing of her personal fortunes and media empire. Empty is as empty does Gaga.

Glee to Pay Homage to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

Move over, Justin Bieber. You’ve got Glee-ful company.

Ryan Murphy, creator of the Fox series, says a future episode will feature a single that hasn’t even been released yet: Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”

How will Glee utilize her new song, due out in February (the album of the same name comes out in May)? It’ll involve Kurt’s nemesis, Karofsky.

Lady Gaga Sans Pants

BORN THIS WAY: Glee will devote an entire episode to the song.

“I love that that song is anthem,” says Murphy. “So I don’t really know what [it’s] going to be yet, but … we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about that song.”

While the full version has not yet been heard, Gaga recently dropped her pants (and the release date). The Lady also sang part of it a capella at the MTV VMAs.

Here’s that one verse re-mixed over a Gaga-esque beat …

Genetics, DNA, Human Sexuality: Human Sexual Orientation Has Deep Biological Roots

2.23.2010

For nearly 25 years I have tried to explain to “gay hating bible thumpers” [I am a gay progressive Christian mystic, clairvoyant, and Cherokee Shaman] that my being gay was a matter of biology, not choice. My uncle was gay, my father was secretly gay, but married and had four children, my brother is gay, my two sisters lean heavily bisexual. I have several cousins who are gay, and so forth, on my father’s side of the family tree.

It did not take a rocket scientist to study the genetics of my family tree and to ascertain that some members of my family had a pre-disposed genetic penchant, for art, literature, the spoken and written word, music, theology and were biologically gay.

However, in the southern Baptist culture in which I was raised in the 60s and 70s, gay people have been called everything in the book, including “demon possessed” by uneducated sub-literate southern Baptist, pentecostal, and fundamentalist ministers, who often had not much more than a 7th or 8th grade education themselves.

Many of these ministers refuse to even read any other book other than a bible, and they represent the worst fears and nightmares of a progressive,  educated religious American mainstream who are still struggling to understand why approximately 9 to 19% of the USA population at any given is biologically gay, how to address it, and what to “do” about it.

I personally always wondered why other Americans felt they needed to “do something” about their gay children, neighbor’s kids’ friends and office workers. Whose business is it when someone is born gay? Excuse me, but it is primarily God‘s business and no one elses’. That is the utter truth of the matter.

When a soul is born homosexual, it is strictly between that soul and their maker as to the reasons why and the implications. It’s not the problem or concern of society, or ministers, or the Vatican, or politicians, or theologians. The religious community has now stepped knee deep in this issue, against God’s Will, and they will have to answer for it. Their meddling in the private lives of millions of innocent gay people who just want the same spousal rights as any other Americans has cost many same sex families untold humiliation, persecution, suffering, financial hardship and even death, as in the case of Matthew Shepard. When the minister in the pulpit gives his congregation permission to hate, he is utterly and absolutely accountable and he will answer to God for it.

I could no more change my sexual orientation [I tried in the 80s and hated it and stopped trying] than I could change the actual color of my eyes. Once American theological society and the political and religious community finally comprehend the simple biological facts of sexual orientation, get an education, emotionally grow up, and being behaving like adults about this issue, and stop behaving like medieval neanderthals, then finally we can get on with the business of loving our neighbor as ourself,  live and let live, and also get on with the more pressing issues facing our nation, which demand our urgent attention.

Genetics and Proposition 8

Human sexual orientation has deep biological roots.

By Dean Hamer and Michael Rosbash February 23, 2010
There was an elephant in the San Francisco courtroom where lawyers contested the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California law that prohibits the marriage of same-sex couples. One key issue should influence every aspect of the Perry vs. Schwarzenegger proceedings yet remained unspoken: What makes people gay? Is it a choice or is it innate?Most geneticists consider sexual orientation a phenotype — namely, an observable set of properties that varies among individuals. Although physical phenotypes like height and weight are easier to quantify, behavioral phenotypes are intensely studied in animals and humans. Research from many directions leads to a strong conclusion: Human sexual orientation has deep biological roots.

Moreover, the empirical evidence for the role of genetics in human sexual orientation has been quietly but steadily mounting over the last 15 years. Studies of twins — the mainstay of quantitative human genetics — have been conducted on large populations in three countries. The results unambiguously demonstrate that heritability plays a major role in sexual orientation and far outweighs shared environmental factors such as education or parenting.

During the early 1990s, there was an unfortunate flurry of less-than-convincing findings on specific genes and sometimes over-hyped media announcements. Indeed, critics of sexual orientation inheritance are fond of pointing out that there is no single identified “gay gene.” However, they fail to mention that the same is true for height, skin color, handedness, frequency of heart disease and many other traits that have a large inherited component but no dominant gene. In other words, sexual orientation is complex, i.e., many genes contribute to the phenotype.

Gay genes appear paradoxical at first blush. From the perspective of natural selection, how could they persist in the population if they lead to fewer offspring? Recent research has uncovered several plausible explanations. For example, one set of studies found that the same inherited factors that favor male homosexuality actually increase the fecundity of female maternal relatives. By balancing the number of offspring, they would contribute to maintaining these genes over the course of evolution. This explanation may not be exclusive but serves to illustrate that the Darwinian problem is not necessarily overwhelming.

There have been other surprises. One is the importance of epigenetics — changes that alter gene expression without a change in the DNA code of an affected gene. This is evidenced by the lopsided number of maternal versus paternal factors in male sexual orientation and by unusual patterns of DNA modification in mothers of gay men. Epigenetic changes may also explain the finding that a male’s probability of being gay is increased by his number of older brothers.

Although these factors are neither genetic in the traditional Mendelian sense nor fully understood, they are still biological and affect phenotype in an involuntary manner. Who chooses his number of older brothers?

All of these findings demand the conclusion that most gay people no more choose their sexual orientation than most heterosexuals. (“Most” is used here to indicate that — like almost everything biological — these are statistical data and do not apply uniformly.) This conclusion is also consonant with our memories: Most of us were stunned as unsuspecting adolescents to discover our sexual orientation — heterosexuals and homosexuals alike.

Biology cannot be avoided in determining whether fundamental rights are protected under the equal protection clause of our Constitution. This is because “immutability” is one of the factors that determine the level of scrutiny applied to possible violations and that determine whether gays are awarded “suspect class” status, which would give them more constitutional protection. Heritability is not necessary for immutability or suspect class status (religion is the usual counter-example), but it should be sufficient; we do not choose our genes, nor can we change them.

The court of public opinion may be the ultimate arbiter, and here there is cause for optimism about what education can achieve. Recent studies in college classrooms show that exposure of students to information on the causes of homosexuality has a direct influence on opinions about gay rights. This fits with polling data showing that people who believe that gays are “born that way” are generally supportive of full equality, whereas those who believe it is “a choice” are opposed.

The importance of education is also underscored by the extent to which a lack of education is problematic. One national survey found that 70% of those who think being gay is a choice favored the re- institution of sodomy laws. This would turn some 15 million Americans into common criminals for simply being who they are. Science education must help people understand that phenotypic variation, including sexual orientation diversity, is an immutable feature of human biology.
