The professional prudes at the Media Research Center's Culture & Media Institute have always hated gays, to the point that saying anything at all nice about them is, in CMI's view, no different than "propaganda."
Paul Wilson does exactly that in a Nov. 15 CMI article denouncing Jessica Lowndes' song "I Wish I Was Gay":
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.
So not hating gays makes you "notorious"? That's the MRC's anti-gay mindset in a nutshell.
