I bet you didn’t see this one coming.

International woman of mystery and self-appointed spokesperson for all gay people in the world ever Lady Gaga has recorded a message (not actually an “address” – shoot me) aimed at the United States Senate, appealing for the US military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to be abolished.

Stefani’s speaking voice makes her seem kind of slow, and there’s the most awkward phone ringing sequence ever in the middle, but it’s still worth watching whether you agree or disagree with the central premise.

Listen to her trying to pronounce those big words. She's so full of shit, trying so hard to be different than every other "pop star" out there.

I doubt they use gay profiling, it's probably pretty obvious when a guy gets a huge boner in the showers.

That's the thing. The people who are against letting homosexuals be equal are 99.9% likely to already despise Lady Gaga. It's rather sad that SHE'S the loudest voice right now, with her rather slutty image and all.

STD's generally associated with homosexuality are not bacterial.

Also, you could call a state a district, even though district is more related to the House.

eternium
09.18.10
Between those who don't know the very basics about our government, those who think Obama is a Communist, and those who believe that Bush is 100% responsible for all of our problems, Lady Gaga is probably much more educated. I just think it's pathetic that a woman who wears meat for clothing and sings about disco sticks is the current loudest voice for gay rights.

idk as someone who likes calling people fags (but not gay people) maybe im not qualified to enter this debate. i like gay people, but i don't think this is the right time to dredge up dont ask dont tell theres all this tumult over unemployment and immigration... don't repeal the law yet, just throw some money at an oversight committee to fix whatever problems people are complaining to GaGa about and we'll come back to it in 2013...

i'm saying the timing for the decision is shitty.

robertsona
09.18.10
you're a fucking imbecile just because someone's a pop star doesnt mean they cant have moral or political opinions and use their popularity to sway people. if youre really for this cause youd be fucking happy that she's trying to get people to take action on this. not everything that she does that isnt music is a publicity stunt you idiot

also shes hotter than bono

I think he's mad. If I had a daughter, I wouldn't want her exposed to Lady Gaga. I wouldn't want her to "represent" gay people because it makes them look bad. She isn't a bad person or anything, but she reinforces the stereotypes of eccentricity and promiscuity.

theacademy
09.18.10
but male role models thrive by pushing those kinds of personae. just look at pro athletes or rock stars or rappers.

eternium
09.18.10
I wouldn't want them to do it either. I'd rather see somebody more respectable like Rachel Maddow or even Jonsi.

That's how most arguments go. You give your position and explain it. Then someone just calls you an idiot without backing their own points.

09.18.10
what the fuck

theacademy
09.18.10
ok i really hate to side with lakes and robertsona (at the same time... urgh) but the point is that, for a cause that needs a really broad support base, someone like gaga is incredibly valuable regardless of the content of her music... this is because everybody follows her, reads about her, knows about her, and will listen to her (even blindly).

Thats why, if you're a gay in the military, you don't have a problem with gaga's video...

eternium
09.18.10
Right, because Kesha would be a great spokeswoman for women's rights.

theacademy
09.18.10
sort of a bad comparison...

robertsona
09.18.10
i actually think that the two "ballads" on the fame (the original version that is) might outdo speechless

bad romance is good but never really hit me on the same level it seems to have everyone else; i think it's sort of a maybe slightly above average level single for her

cinaedus
09.18.10
i need to buy the fame, i don't have it

There's nothing wrong with sex or talking about it, but she does it wayyy too much to be a role model for the youth. She's actually trying to gain fame with and shows off her bisexuality, imo.

Yes, but you can't sell sex and call yourself a role model at the same time. I'm about as liberal as they come regarding personal freedoms, but she just shouldn't be a role model. It's just a big facepalm.

cinaedus

09.21.10
i hate her music, and most everything gaga related, but i have utmost respect for her. im glad that she is using her fame to an advantage on this subject.

as a homosexual, i believe that this dumb fuck policy should be abolished. not that i would ever want to fight for this shithole country, but for the ones that do they should be able to. why the hell should someone's orientation determine whether or not they are in the military?
this is supposedly a 'free' country, but people are being treated like garbage for something so insignificant.
