Okay, so my fave on last year's Idol (the U.S. version) Adam Lambert is being banned from a number of television shows because of the simulated oral sex act during a recent performance.
I have to say, I don't get the furor.
How many music videos and performances (live or televised) are there where a male singer simulated anal or doggie-style sex with a female dancer? This has even been on main-stream shows like So You Think You Can Dance. No one says boo. Haven't there been instances where a female dancer will drop to her knees in front of a male star?
So, what's the difference?
I'm not saying I like any of it. As a matter of fact, I don't.
I don't think it adds anything of value to the music and is often very degrading.
But that isn't the point.
My question is: if it's okay for some, why isn't it okay for others?
Oh, right. He's gay and it was a guy down there not a woman. 'Cause if it was a woman, it would never have been worthy of canceling bookings. So it's both homophobic and sexist. Bravo, television networks!
