More Pro-Gay Pop-Aganda: Actress Sings 'I Wish I Was Gay'

Jessica Lowndes, an actress on the CW show ''90210,'' is trying to break into the music world - by releasing a song where she ridiculously poses as a straight woman wishing she were gay.

Lowndes released a single with the catchy title ''I Wish I Was Gay,'' about a woman reacting to being cheated on by her boyfriend. Lowdnes repeats the words ''I wish I was gay,'' and expresses a desire to ''escape those boys.'' The song also bizarrely suggests that lesbians are more faithful than straight guys, a claim even gay site Queerty mocked.

The music video features a provocatively dressed Lowndes teasing a man and flirting with her backup dancers before confronting him with his infidelity, shaving his legs and smearing his face with lipstick.

Lowndes' single is part of a larger trend of gay themes being used in contemporary music. The Huffington Post notes that "gay themes are quickly becoming a ubiquitous element of contemporary pop music."

Female musicians in particular are promoting homosexuality and bisexual behavior. Pop star Lady Gaga is notorious for her advocacy of homosexuality, and included homosexual themes in songs such as ''Born This Way.'' Singer Katy Perry explored bisexual themes with her 2008 song ''I Kissed a Girl.'' X Factor competitor Simone Battle recently released a song and music video titled "He Likes Boys," which expressed a girl's unrequited desire for gay guys.

While the trend of increasing homosexuality in pop songs is certainly worrisome, Lowndes' latest propaganda effort would probably draw more of a following if her singing were competent. After listening to Lowndes' lesbian fantasy, most listeners would probably echo the sentiments of one reviewer, who declared: ''I wish I was deaf.''

#1 She wishes she was gay?

Well that's no problem, just do what 99% of other gays do, and choose to be.

#2 I'm guessing she also forget

That lesbians have a higher rate of domestic abuse than straight couples. Facts can be so inconvenient.

#3 Says who? Family Research Council?

You mean the same homophobic bigots responsible for the Prop 8 lies and bogus "studies" that were specifically targeted, debunked, and thrown out of court by the federal judge who overturned the bigoted law?

Here's copy from the research study published by The National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control (under the GW Bush Administration)

o Women living with female intimate partners experience less intimate partner violence than women living with male intimate partners. Slightly more than 11 percent of the women who had lived with a woman as part of a couple reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a female cohabitant, but 21.7 percent of the women who had married or lived with a man as part of a couple reported such violence by a husband or male cohabitant. These findings suggest that lesbian couples experience less intimate partner violence than do heterosexual couples; however, more research is needed to support or refute this conclusion.

o Men living with male intimate partners experience more intimate partner violence than do men who live with female intimate partners. Approximately 23 percent of the men who had lived with a man as a couple reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a male cohabitant, while 7.4 percent of the men who had married or lived with a woman as a couple reported such violence by a wife or female cohabitant. These findings, combined with those presented in the previous bullet, provide further evidence that intimate partner violence is perpetrated primarily by men, whether against male or female intimates. Thus, strategies for preventing intimate partner violence should focus
on risks posed by men.

If you use a little logic you might understand why there is more IPV (Intimate Partner Violence) among gay men. Men are (vastly) more prone to violence. The other thing is we live in a society where male-on-female violence is considered low and cowardly (as it should be). That men would be more apt to "get into it" with another man, should be of no surprise. And IF you could find a VALID study that shows what you just claimed about lesbians, logic would tell me that 2 lesbian women would be more likely to "get into it" and show more aggression toward their intimate partner than they would "pick a fight" with a man.

Duhhh - SHOCKING isn't it? It doesn't take an Einstein. But it does take a homophobic "Focus on The Family" or "Family Research Council" bigot to make it out to be a "homosexual" trait or flaw - and just one one of the the flock of parrots to continue to spread the anti-gay myths.

What a treat this article is - suddenly the claim is that pop-culture is "turning gay". Yeah right, I'm sure they're all "choosing" to do so because being gay is so cool. Everyone wants to be picked on and ostracized I'm sure. As your buddy John Stossel would say, "Give me a break". Gays have ALWAYS been predominant in the arts and entertainment circles - something you should recognize as a blessing from your loving God maybe? The only thing that MIGHT be changing is that more people are "coming out" than used to occur, but the number of gays (anywhere) is no more than it ever was. But there is really nothing new here - and nothing "threatening" to heterosexuals or marriage because more people are no longer living a lie.

You're the same people who wanted to ban John Lennon's "Imagine" (there is no no heaven.. and no religion too) - which in MY (suburban) TOWN was played at my high school commencement ceremony in 1973. I remember the conservative outrage.

ONE straight woman has a song with lyrics "I wish I was gay" and you're acting like Chicken Little. The Sky Is Falling! The Sky Is Falling! ROFLMAO!

#4 Overreact

much?

#5 Dont you have a Church to storm?

Did you know 85% of black folks are against Gay marriage? Why no protest in Watts?

Seek Truth, Defend Liberty

#6 Not acting like the sky is falling, Clevenative---

just pointing out the idiotic farce, supposed entertainment or not, of a "straight' person wishing to be Gay.

Then again, as GLBTs are a protected group who must neither be maligned, nor even chided; I can see why a weakling lib such as yourself would be so envious, appreciative, and star struck.

That line about living a lie - have you yet departed the closet?

Boys, and girls, I do believe we have a troll in our midst. I could be wrong, so I'll let the experts decide.

Really now... Who's guilty of hate and bigotry here?

After reading this diatribe, I'll just let the evidence speak for itself.

BTW... Can you show me exactly WHERE FOTF, or FRC said IPV rates are higher among lesbians?

Oh, sorry, you just ASSUMED they said that. My mistake!

#8 I stand corrected.

Not a troll. He's/she's been around here for nearly 4 years.

And after all that, clevanative would still post something like this. Haven't you learned ANYTHING in all this time?

#9 And rad forces me yet to make another correction...

He cites a study by FRC to validate his argument, thereby validating clevanative's assertion that they did indeed say what he/she said they said... (oh the spin...)

I'll man up and eat my words, but c'mon, cleve, old buddy... Admit it! It was just a lucky guess on your part, wasn't it?

#10 DumbCanuck

The conclusions were posted by the FRC, but the studies they are based on are not. That is why I posed the link to the notations. I could have posted each study individually, but since the material had already been put together I didn't bother.

The fact that the FRC listed the various studies does not invalidate those studies.

#11 I'm glad you clarified that, but...

... I'm sure cleve will interpret that differently. He will not make that distinction.

And the fact that FRC did post the studies implies that they agree with the conclusion, thereby validating.... oh forget it. I'm just having a bad day today!

#12 Dumb Canuck

Well if Clevie refuses to make the distinction then it's on him, not me.

The day is almost over (at least where I am), hopefully tomorrow is better.

I don't think it's valid to compare homosexual men and lesbian women to straight men and women. They are vastly different.

Regarding statistics,
INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE Lesbian and Homosexual Relationships

Research indicates very high levels of violence in homosexual and lesbian relationships:

· A study in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence examined conflict and violence in lesbian relationships. The researchers found that 90 percent of the lesbians surveyed had been recipients of one or more acts of verbal aggression from their intimate partners during the year prior to this study, with 31 percent reporting one or more incidents of physical abuse.[46]

· In a survey of 1,099 lesbians, the Journal of Social Service Research found that slightly more than half of the lesbians reported that they had been abused by a female lover/partner. The researchers found that "the most frequently indicated forms of abuse were verbal/emotional/psychological abuse and combined physical-psychological abuse."[47]

· A study of lesbian couples reported in the Handbook of Family Development and Intervention "indicates that 54 percent had experienced 10 or more abusive incidents, 74 percent had experienced six or more incidents, 60 percent reported a pattern to the abuse, and 71 percent said it grew worse over time."[48]

· In their book Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them: Battered Gay Men and Domestic Violence, Island and Letellier postulate that "the incidence of domestic violence among gay men is nearly double that in the heterosexual population."[49]

  • "Here's copy from the research study published by The National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control (under the GW Bush Administration)"  -- Clevenative
     

1)  Clevenative's link dates the paper as July 2000 during Clinton's administration, not Bush's as he stated.

2)  Clevenative and his source fail to make a most elementary conclusion about female perpetrators of bad behavior despite the paper publishing the supportive data:  Women are more likely to be abusive when in a homosexual relationship.

The paper states, as does Clevenative's quoting in his post:

  • o Women living with female intimate partners experience less intimate partner violence than women living with male intimate partners. Slightly more than 11 percent of the women who had lived with a woman as part of a couple reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a female cohabitant, but 21.7 percent of the women who had married or lived with a man as part of a couple reported such violence by a husband or male cohabitant. These findings suggest that lesbian couples experience less intimate partner violence than do heterosexual couples; however, more research is needed to support or refute this conclusion.
  • o Men living with male intimate partners experience more intimate partner violence than do men who live with female intimate partners. Approximately 23 percent of the men who had lived with a man as a couple reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a male cohabitant, while 7.4 percent of the men who had married or lived with a woman as a couple reported such violence by a wife or female cohabitant. These findings, combined with those presented in the previous bullet, provide further evidence that intimate partner violence is perpetrated primarily by men, whether against male or female intimates. Thus, strategies for preventing intimate partner violence should focus on risks posed by men.

To recap:  7.4 % of women in heterosexual relationships versus 11% of women in homosexual relationships commit bad behaviors onto their partners. 

Conclusion: When the perpetrator of bad behavior is a woman, it is more likely that woman is in a homosexual relationship.

 

  • Nota Bene:  The 7.4% of heterosexual women reported commiting violence against their partners does not expressly state including "stalking" as part of the data, so the comparison may not be equivalence subsets of data.  Was this accidental, purposeful, no data available on stalking, or just poor word choice by the authors for actual equivalent data subsets?

#15 Strat

Yup, just as I found when I looked into it. Cleventine won't be back though. He's off posting some other unfounded jibberish, never looking back at the nonsense he's spewed.

#16 You mean...

...the same federal judge (judge Walker) who's involved in a same-sex relationship, and has since retired after making that ruling, and plans on "marrying" his partner? That federal judge?

No, no conflict of interest there... None whatsover. Move along folks... Nothing to see here!

#20 With her looks

she could make it in the gay world. Go for it sweetheart!

#21 I have an idea. Quit falling

I have an idea. Quit falling for the scumbag "Bad Boy" types and get with a decent, hard working man with standards and a high moral code of conduct. That might help. But you won't cause it makes you happy to stereotype all men as pigs.

If I may add, women need to have standards and a high moral code of their own. My husband, who is a great guy, didn't want a scumbag for a wife.

Who the f*** is Jessica Lowndes? Never heard of her and I did not know that there was another "90210" on tv.

#24 I AM gay - a gay conservative

Honestly, I wouldn't let this bother you. Yes, I'm a gay conservative. I believe in small government, limited taxation, I vote Republican and I've been with my partner for ten years.

Of all things to pick at, this is some silly girl from 90210 who wishes she had a brain. The song isn't going to turn anyone gay.

Just relax.

#25 Oh, I wouldn't be too sure of that, Alan.

I am so not gay, but after watching her video, to my great surprise, 15 minutes later I found myself hitting on the oil burner repair man who was down in my basement.

(Nah, just kidding.)

#26 I'll just echo my post from above.

Move along, folks... Nothing to see here.

No, the sky's not falling. How can it? It has already fallen!

--proverbially speaking, of course...

For the record, the issue is not whether or not the song will turn somebody gay. The issue is the targeting of youth by promoting a life style... no offence intended, alanocu... a life style with dubious health consequences... if you're not careful, and possibly even if you are.

Well, at least your not living a lie. I guess that's a plus.

#27 Alan

Nope, it won't turn anyone gay. But young children will hear it and it may start a conversation that they are really to young to have. But of course, that's true about far to many pop songs.

#28 There may be a copyright infringement

I swear South Park already did this song years ago. I think Cartman sang it.

#29 Sigh -- once again -- "gay" is a marketing term

The correct, neutral description is "homosexual"

There is nothing happy or festive about a condition empirically shown to be associated with high rates of suicide and depression.

#30 Lame Stunt

This girl, whoever she is, because I don't recognize her at all, needs to fire her manager who concocted this ridiculous song, because as a vehicle for larger pop success, it's a failure.
