Grammys Urge Female Celebs Not to Show Skin Tonight



The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air tonight on CBS. Very much to its credit, the network has struck a blow this year for family viewing by issuing a wardrobe advisory to female attendees encouraging them to dress more like ladies – not named Gaga – and  less like wannabe porn stars. 

“Please be sure,” the advisory stated, “that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.” 

And this: “Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”

Yes. That’s how detailed the advisory had to be to deter female vulgarians attending tonight’s Grammys from prancing down the red carpet – or even appearing on stage – wearing next to nothing, for all the world to see.

As a Christ follower, I’ve long been offended that the Grammys have aired on Sundays, the Lord’s Day. For only woman under demonic influence – like Mary Magdalene, from whom Christ cast out some seven demons – would display themselves in the manner of some of the women who’ve made Grammy infamy.

Like R&B artist Rihanna who, at last year’s Grammy’s, wore a black dress designed to exposing the bare sides of her breasts.

And Lady Gaga, who in 2010 performed on stage at the Grammys in a thong type costume that inadequately covered her genitalia area.

And Toni Braxton, a forerunner of Rihanna, who in 2001 wore a white dress, and absolutely nothing underneath, with cut outs in the front, back and sides.

And Jennifer Lopez, who in 2000 got the Grammys annual skin fest started, by stepping out in that notorious Versace dress that clearly revealed the under curvature of her breast, much to the cheap thrill of male oglers that attended Grammys in person and those that  watched at home.

I’m not a fan of CNN – my tastes run to FOX News – but I think Erin Burnett was right on this past Thursday when she closed her nightly CNN show by calling out Lady Gaga and other exhibitionist female celebrities.

“There certainly is a difference,” said Miss Burnett, “between sexy and sexual.”

And, I might add, women who walk with the Lord, who present their bodies each day as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, know well that difference.

Are Transgenders the New ‘It’ Minority?


First came Richard Raskind, an ophthalmologist who in 1975 underwent “sex reassignment” surgery. He emerged as Renee Richards and decided to pursue a professional tennis career as a woman – four years after reaching the finals of the men’s 35-and-over tennis championship.

More recently, there was Chastity Bono, daughter of famed pop duo Sonny and Cher, who in 2010 became Chaz Bono after undergoing a sex-change operation. A documentary on her/his “gender transition,” imaginatively titled “Becoming Chaz,” was well-received at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

And now there’s Larry Wachowski, co-director of the “Matrix” series, who debuted this week as Lana. Wearing a gray dress and pink dreadlocks, the latest member of the transgender community appears in a promo for a new movie he/she made with his/her bro Andy.

There was a time, not so long ago – before Chaz Bono appeared on “Dancing With The Stars,” before Barack Obama climbed in bed with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community – when transgenders kept their sex change on the down low.

Now, they’re out and they’re proud. Transgenders are the new “it” minority.

Not on Main Street USA, mind you, where most of us reside.

But on the main drag in West Hollywood. And on Castro Street in San Francisco, the nation’s capital of LGBT activism.

And on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., where LGBT guests of Obama recently took turns flipping off a White House portrait of the late great President Ronald Reagan.

Now that the LGBs have all but succeeded in mainstreaming their ungodly lifestyle, the Ts are next in line. They are determined to win legal recognition as a “protected” minority.

Indeed, transgenders are fighting to overturn the still-in-place Army regulation which declares those who’ve undergone a sex change unfit to serve.

They are challenging rules requiring athletes competing in women’s sports to actually have been born female.

They are demanding the “right” to continued employment when “transitioning” from one gender to another.

The transgender community represents that it’s no different than any other minority group in this country and, therefore, should be accorded “equal” treatment under the law.

But transgenders like Richards and Bono and Wachowski are clinically ill, according to the American Psychiatric Association. In fact, the APA has long held that men who want to be women, and women who want to be men, suffer from “gender identity disorder.”

So transgenders don’t need special legal protections. What they really need is psychiatric help.
