For those of you that seen the highlights of this past 2017 Grammy Awards, you already know of the incident about contemporary gospel artist Kirk Franklin wearing a red dress underneath his usual Sunday's best church clothes.

Yes fellow VCF members, it has finally gotten to the point that gospel music cannot make enough money unless some of their [dis]respected male artists are wearing a dress at the expense of their masculinity being compromise.

The problem no longer exist only for actors in Hollywood & Broadway. The problem has been push within the music industry as well.

If you know of any "Man In The Dress" incidents within entertainment, post the information in THIS thread.

Omg. I hadn't seen this. Lowest of the low, really. A red dress (how blasphemous!) and black leggings- like a lady!

This is a trend which I recognized as well in the latest time. Feminizing the men and masculizing the women. As williejonesjr said: switching the traditional family roles and making fathers unnecessary in the future. That's what I think. In Germany there's this "process" going on right now: the rents for flats are rising (cause of speculation from the rich, buying whatever could be worthy in the future) so most of the familys have money problems if not both parents go to work.

So that's perfect to split up the family idea where at least one parent is maybe half a day at home to take care of a good education. Additionaly comes the fact that there is this "women, be stronger!" shit going on in the media (e.g. Beyonce) which essentially isn't against my beliefs of how women should be. I like strong women, but I don't like women who think they have to be stronger than the men. Like "now is the time to hit back, HARD!"

The consequence of this are men, who think the whole world is turned upside down. Okay, I don't know how it is in the US, but germans are a little more reserved. I think it's a side effect of the whole Adolf-and-the-nazis-thing, I mean WE killed the jews, we have to be ashamed. But that's getting better in my oppinion. I don't kill no jew or were in a war. That's past to me, my grandpa was in russia, but that's not my story.

But back to splitting the family and deviding men and women: a strong woman is no problem, but a woman who thinks she has to be stronger then the men, is. Who wants (as a man) to date a soldier ready for war? No, men want, in my oppinion and in the idea of nature, a woman who can defend herself and some kids, but not beaten up her own man.

It's not science fiction nowadays taking sperm from a man and fertilize a woman without having sex. So what is the man needed for if you already have the sperm cooled down and freezed in a big steel-container ready to make some childs? You just need the woman. Okay, maybe sometimes you run out of "material" but this won't be a problem if you already can choose the eye and hair colour of your future child.

It's not clear to me if this is the goal or what could be the positive effect of it (maybe a more peaceful world with a one-world-government), but I don't like the direction in which this is heading to. Capitalization of the family in the first place, and destroying the social union in the second. Where smartphones still take the biggest part off/in (?) to me.

There was an interview in which Tupac was requested to be tested for HIV among other ridiculous requirements during the fanning of Poetic Justice.

This was first pointed out by Dave Chappelle. And it sounded a little nutty at first. Dave had just returned from his hiatus to Africa (aka nervous breakdown), and he gave 2 excellent interviews for Inside the Actors Studio and Oprah (the inside the actors studio interview is THE best celebrity interview I have ever seen. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and watch it). But the point is, this sounded like straight up paranoia from Dave. But then...I started to see it too. Hollywood is putting a lot of their black celebrities in a damn dress.


Yesterday morning I'm watching an old episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-air from '95 called "get a job". Chris Rock was guest starring. He played 2 roles: a celebrity comedian, and the comedian's sister. And no shit Chris Rock came out in full fucking drag. And then I remembered what Chappelle said.
