I turned on my computer not knowing what to write when I saw an article where Miley Cyrus was being interviewed. Miley pretty much wrote this article for me.
Quick note I am not going to write a rebuttal to the whole article because that would turn into a book like Jonathon Sarfati would write, but I do want to look at a few things that were said…
How did you become involved with the LGBTQ community?
“My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality. I always hated the word “bisexual,” because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl. Also, my nipple pasties and sh*t never felt sexualized to me. My eyes started opening in the fifth or sixth grade. My first relationship in my life was with a chick. I grew up in a very religious Southern family. The universe has always given me the power to know I’ll be OK. Even at that time, when my parents didn’t understand, I just felt that one day they are going to understand.”
There is too much in this to address it all, but I want to point out her comment saying “The universe has given me the power to know I’ll be okay.” This seems from a purely logical standpoint tough to prove. The universe doesn’t have any authority and stating that it says certain things are okay can be disproved by simply stating it told me they weren’t. There is no doctrine in the universe thus it has to rely on what we feel and just because you feel a certain way doesn’t make it true. That still makes it a feeling.
What I also like and this is bigger than Miley is the idea that you can find peace from the universe but laugh at the idea of a God let alone Him being someone you can find peace from. People of Miley’s ilk would laugh at the mere idea of believing in a God but whole heartily put their faith in the universe. Seems confusing to me.
The definition of the universe is “All of space and everything in it including stars, planets, galaxies, etc.” How does one get the power to know that their sexuality is okay from the stars, planets, and galaxies? I to live in the universe but I haven’t heard much talking from stars. The planets have been pretty quiet as well.
Why do you think inequality still exists for women in Hollywood?
“A lot of it could be changed if we had a female president. That would give us a subconscious boost. I think people will have to realize they’re looking really dated. For example, there’s a show called “Supergirl.” I think having a show with a gender attached to it is weird. One, it’s a woman on that f*cking billboard — it’s not a little girl. Two, what if you’re a little boy who wants to be a girl so bad that this makes you feel bad? I think having a title like “Supergirl” doesn’t give the power that people think it does.”
This has to be the singular dumbest thing I have ever read in my entire life. Men and woman have existed for a long long time. Calling a show “Supergirl” is an absolute zero on the scale. In fact, it’s probably a negative number it’s so low. If we are going to start naming shows with the basis that a little boy who wants to be a little girl can’t be offended by a billboard with a female super hero, then we have absolutely lost it. The idea that we need to craft a society so that NO ONE is ever offended is impossible and fixes nothing. Crafting society around peace will not work. Look at the parents whose goal in their family is to have peace. That parenting doesn’t work. The kids are almost always unruly because the parents let them do whatever they want. The goal of a family and society should be love. My family says things I don’t agree with. Who says we have to agree with everyone? When we strive for peace then everyone agreeing is crucial. When we strive for love agreement is meaningless because we love the person no matter what their belief is. I know for a FACT that if I were to ever get a girl pregnant and move to Florida my mom and dad would come down there and scream at me for being a coward. They would drag my butt on the plane to take me back home and make me face my responsibilities. I hope they would offend me in a serious way. I know for them to take time off from work, buy airplane tickets, etc.… would mean they love me enough to offend me. If I moved to Florida and they said “Oh okay, what are you going to do?” that would be a response based on peace, not in love. In the short-term I may wish they would take that approach in the long-term it would hurt me that they don’t actually love me.
I do agree that “Supergirl” doesn’t give the power people think it does. The idea that women have been held back and the way we are going to fix it is by coming up with a show called “Supergirl” should be offensive to all women. The general manager at my company is a woman. Everybody in the company loves her. She is awesome and fantastic at her job!! There is no “Well she’s good at her job for a women.” She’s not. She’s just simply good at her job. She was good at her job before “Supergirl” and will be good at her job after “Supergirl”. She is good because she works hard, communicates effectively, and has a higher standard on her own work that the owners have for her. There is no outside force that can affect her because she has looked at herself in the mirror and set a high standard.
