‘KISS’ OF HYPOCRISY?
By: Maria A. Hitchins
Strange that the music selectors of this nation continue to ‘blaze a fire’ in the name of homosexuality, But yet seemingly condone and up hold ‘girl on girl’ vulgarity.
Quite prominent on the local airwaves these days, is Katey Perry’s “I kissed a girl and I like it.” And hardly a disc jockey has yet to publicly chastise this.
Instead continuing to give rise to its popularity, by rotating it on most stations daily.
Another hypocrisy, as the song is passed off as listener friendly.
“I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend doesn't mind it…”
Perhaps the selectors have forgot that homosexuality doesn’t only mean male on male ‘daggering’, but rather ALL same sex partnering, which makes the term all encompassing, to include Katey Perry’s sudden ‘GIRL’ fling.
But as with most things in Jamaica there exists a double standard, no selector dares to play a male singing about a fantasy with another, but girls however, are seemingly allowed to carry on in full flight, as each other’s lovers!
