I just want to respond to this:
There is a reason that girl on girl action doesn’t get censored on TV and man on man action does. That word again, the “ick factor”. Look it up if you don’t know what it means.
I’ve said in a blog post that people are used to seeing girl on girl make out action, while most people don’t want to see man on man action. It’s really quite simple to understand.
Do you ever wonder why in “soft core porn”, they are willing to show the woman fully naked but they never show the man’s privates? It’s that “ick factor” that straight men don’t wanna see. If you want to see everything, watch the hardcore porn.
Man on man action and male nudity is not allowed on regular TV for many reasons. Basically, the only reason is that the soft core porn industry and regular TV don’t want to turn off the straight male viewers.
I don’t see a double standard in any of this at all. It’s just the people’s way of defending “equality” and gay rights.
The censoring on the “Early Show” and cancelling the Good Morning America performance, has nothing to do with Adam Lambert. It’s all about the material that is being brought in the performance.
I agree with the censoring. I don’t think any guy would want to wake up in the morning and while switching channels you see that going on while he’s drinking coffee or something before work.
Girl on girl kissing is less graphic than man on man action.
On top of that, this isn’t the first time that famous bands brought in homosexual material into their performances. The Red Hot Chilli Peppers has done it many times, also David Bowie and Nirvana has done it. Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl made out on stage plenty of times.
Adam Lambert needs to leave this stuff at the gay bars. This is where he needs to go back to performing, not on TV. I’m not being anti-gay. Adam Lambert is an attention whore with a capital W and he’s just doing whatever it takes to help promote his upcoming album.
