Prudes Censor Both Katy Perry And Me

     So What's the story with why the episode of Sesame Street with Katy Perry was cancelled? Reportedly it was because of negative feedback they received, but the negative feedback wasn't disclosed leaving us to speculate:
      Oh, no! It's an attractive woman with breasts singing and dancing! Eek!
      There seems to be no limit to what these prudes will try to censor, whether it's me or Katy Perry. What if someone's ankle shows (gasp!). Apparently someone thought there was too much cleavage (under the fine mesh of her outfit) or that she seemed too sexy. Why do PBS, Google, Apple, Youtube, Facebook and Flickr knuckle under to the hypocritical manufactured pressure from fundamentalists, ideologues, theocrats and their techno-spamming hate?
     Was the negative feedback related to previous big hit by Katy Perry - I Kissed a Girl?

     One wonders whether they might have had horrible headaches at Sesame Street trying to decide whether they should have hired a transvestite to avoid having cleavage or conversely since Katy Perry was asking Elmo whether he wanted to play "Dress Up" may have worried that people who have Transphobia might be perturbed. Many bigots harbour intense hatred and loathing for trans-gendered, transsexuals, transvestites, cross-dressers etc..
     Speaking of hypocrisy, Someone at the Mercury News pointed out that Elmo wasn't wearing any pants!
    Maybe the top executives were afraid someone would catch them ogling Katy Perry's breasts. Theocratic Senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell who is very much anti-sex shows more cleavage than Katy Perry did in the Sesame Street video that got pulled.
          Look out Miss Piggy, Katie might want to play with Kermit!  What's the deal here? The song and the skit are adorable. Who will be censored next? Snow White? Alice in Wonderland?

Katy Perry sings "Hot N Cold" with Elmo on Sesame Street!"

     It was excellent timing that Katy Perry appeared on Saturday Night Live soon after the censorship had reared it's ugly head at PBS. Katy performed "Teenage Dream" on Saturday Night Live Sept. 25, 2010. Katy and her back-up singers wore outfits that looked a bit like school uniforms. The hemlines of the tiered red skirts were high enough to reveal the black panties underneath to be frequently visible during the performance.
     Not only are panty-revealing outfits very much in vogue, but the song but the lyrics fro the refrain of chorus "Don't ever look back, Don't ever look back" gave me a feel-good feeling as well.

     Thankfully for the most part the fashionistas, GLBT and feminist communities have rejected censorship. That doesn't mean there aren't right wing-nuts posing as feminists who want to censor everything. For them I would suggest that they think about the hard struggle for equal rights and privileges for women and how censoring people based on gender is not feminist at all.
     Maybe it's the fact that i have found myself on the receiving end of censorship that i am so sensitive to it.
          You Tube has aided and abetted the "YouTube's user community" in the perpetration of sex discrimination and the committing of defamation by allowing the video titled: PICT_Male-Models-Vanity-Fair-Rose-Pink-Full-Brief-Panties-2.AVI: video to be FALSE-FLAGGED and failing to un-flag it after this wrongful flagging was brought to their attention.
     The continuing libel accompanying the demand for people to have an account and sign in to see this video appears when someone clicks on the video and states:

     "This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community."
     Here is the TRANSCRIPT from the flagged video is titled: PICT_Male-Models-Vanity-Fair-Rose-Pink-Full-Brief-Panties-2.AVI:    
     "The ladies full brief nylon panties that I'm wearing right now are Vanity Fair's Memoir Rose Style 13001 Lace Nouveau full brief nylon panties. I love these panties and the color especially, which I wish that they still made. Um, as you can see, the gusset has a straight across rear seam, unlike the classic vintage Vanity Fair Style 13001 briefs which were manufactured years ago. These are my favorite panties."
     YouTube and Google are noticed and are fully aware that this video was flagged SOLEY because of my gender. If I had been female this video would not be flagged.
     Failure to un-flag this video would be affirmatively negligent and evidence of intent to knowingly continue the defamation motivated by sex discrimination - a hate crime.
     If YouTube were to try tto defend this false flagging it would fly in the face of President and CEO Eric Schmidt's recent claims at his interview with the Wall Street Journal that he opposes censorship and would by implication make him out to be a liar.
     It would also bolster the credibility of the French Court in Paris that recently convicted Google and it's chief executive, Eric Schmidt, of defamation.
     Perhaps the entire construct of how access and control of the internet is being co-opted and controlled, by whom, and the premises of the basic setups should be re-examined. I believe the internet should be for adults,that unfiltered searching should be the default setting, and that if people want to control what they or their children can view then they should be the ones bearing the burden of installing filtering programs like Cyber-Nanny or programs that censor stuff for THEIR OWN viewing only, not for everyone else's. I myself have no interest whatsoever in viewing or being viewed by people who are not adults and greatly resent it whenever I feel that my viewing or being viewed is being limited by narrow minded selfish bigots who place their agenda or avaricious desires above the Constitution of the United States and its Amendments, the Bill of Rights.
     Let the un-american prudes who advocate censorship be the ones who have to accept cookies, as in WARNING: PRUDE. Let the advocates of freedom have the more secure cookie free safe from virus setups. Let the right wing-nuts, theocrats and prudes be relegated to the limited niche of hackery, censorship, deceit, lies, history re-writing and prejudice that is their comfort zone - all in their own little bubble.
     There is no reason the rest of the world should have to abide by their prejudices.
     Here is the video titled "PICT_Male-Models-Vanity-Fair-Rose-Pink-Full-Brief-Panties-2.AVI" that YouTube requires people to sign in to see, stating:
     "This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community."


  1. Another apology: i'd said the next post would be about my followers and commenters and to thank all of you. It just really got under my skin when someone labeled my video as being "inappropriate for some viewers" and required people log in to see it. I have a blog that is intended eventually to cover more adult subjects (that i haven't gotten around to yet) that is over 18 only That blog is named Full Brief Panties Male Modeled, but male-modeling panties doesn't make it adult. It is there, that i might blog or Vlog about adult sexually oriented subjects in the future.

  2. OMG, she's not even showing that much cleavage, right? Why everyone have to be so uptight?

  3. i heard about this and i thought it was very exagerating of the sesame street people
    i mean its not like she was naked hahah

  4. Very interesting topic and works great with the theme of your blog in general. I'm slightly on the fence here. First off, I think Katy looks great. Secondly, I myself, love to dress pretty scantily on the weekends- not full-on tasteless or anything but I love a tight, short outfit on my weekends. Thirdly, with that said- was there a reason that Katy needed to have that cleavage during a children's show? I agree that she looks adorable of course the prudes are going out of hand but again, I don't really feel that surprised that they are. If I were her and I knew I would be appearing on a children's show that airs at like, what, 7 am? I would probably wear a blouse or something that wouldn't give anyone reason to freak out. I admit it's a doubel standard because all the Disney princesses etc. that we love are never wearing any less but I also don't think Katy is dumb and there's a time and a place for tighter clothes, and it's not really on Sesame Street. You bring up great points though regarding gender and censorship and I understand that you have experienced it yourself. I love provocativeness but I do believe it is best aired later at night. As far as your videos, they always have an air of innocence to them but to the person not willing to watch and understand that, they will simply see something they are not comfortable with- a man in women's underwear... getting closer to things like that being okay. Glad you finally posted sir! :)

  5. yes, this december would be 2 years of marriage hahha and i play drums!

  6. I even heard of it, here in Belgium. It's really over the top! She gives herself so much while acting (I'm even a bit impressed by her acting talents) and then it's censured! Come on!

  7. Oh, I just read about this the other day and thought it was hilarious as well! I was wondering what she wore that caused such an uproar! Looks like it's nothing too scary haha:)
    Thanks for sharing the video!


  8. hahha he didnt mean literally for sissys.
    but yeah no i dont have any youtube or anything like that
    ill show you later!

  9. Did you see Madonna's new dolce and gabbana ads??? What are your thoughts because I know you like her, I thought they were gross... haha. Actually the style of them is pretty cool but for some reason, she rubs me wrong :)

  10. I just wanted to say "Thank you!" so much for all your supportive words of encouragement. They really mean a lot to me, and I want you to know I appreciate them. :)

  11. I so totally agree with that... A bit deal for nothing. Children see a lot more cleavage than that just looking out of the windows!

    Thank you once again for your lovely comment! It's for reader like you that people actually keep posting... You show an open mind and respect for others' beliefs and I think we both know that this is not easy to find people like this on the internet!
    And I wish I could find those Amy's frozen vegan meals here in England! Can't wait to move back to my beloved Canada!

  12. Your comments on my blog are always so interesting! They do put a smile on my face. ;)

    To answer your question, I am becoming more and more ambitious when it comes to vegan cooking... It was a bit scary at first but I now find it extremely fun to do!

    As for ghee, I think you can easily replace it with oil. A neutral flavored one though, such as flaxseed oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower oil... As far as I know, it's quite often used in Indian cuisine as well and is a lot healthier than ghee.
    Or, I have read somewhere that you could possibly try using some vegan margarine and add a little soy sauce and balsamic vinegar to it... Apparently, it is quite tasty! I haven't tried it though, so if you do, let me know!

  13. greap post about her..
    thanks for sharing..

  14. Love KP.
    Sorry to hear about your censorship! What ever happened to the First Amendment?


  15. Thank you so much for your lovely comments, it's always so nice to hear from you! I really appreciate you stopping by:)


  16. @ Couture Carrie; That's a good question. The United States Supreme Court ruled in Reno v. ACLU that the Communications Decency Act was unconstitutional and that the internet may not be censored. Unfortunately a heavy politicization of the Justice department occurred during the administration of George W. Bush, planned with the assistance of Karl Rove and implemented under the direction of, among others, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, his Deputy Chief of Staff Kyle Sampson, and Monica Goodling, a former who "worked as an opposition researcher for the Republican National Committee". They were responsible for engineering the firing of U.S. Attorneys, and their replacement with political "Christian" (not) "conservative" (not) Republican anti-sex "values". It was Monica Goodling who ordered the covering up of the breasts of statues in the Great Hall of the Justice Department while John Ashcroft was Attorney General. Since: the FCC and Justice department are still heavily burdened with these prigs, and; Since Google (with a few exceptions), Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo, AOL, and the social networking sites seem to not have a spine when it comes to protecting freedom of speech and the press, and; Since there are just a handful of relatively conservative folks acting as the gatekeepers, and; Since anti-trust statutes have fallen into disuse, and; Since the large companies like the ones mentioned seem to be overwhelmed by false-flagging and have the technical capability or number of unbiased humans necessary to review and un-flag unpopular but Constitutionally protected free expression, and; Since false-flagging can, therefore, be used as a convenient weapon by bigots and prudes; wrongful censorship is the predictable outcome. Protesting that censorship is our duty as freedom loving citizens.

  17. i meant to say that the large companies do Not have the number of unbiased humans necessary to review falsely flagged photos, videos or blogs. That is why the system of "flagging" should be eliminated. It is hurting free expression - badly.

  18. thank you ,i havent heard from you in awhile!
