I wonder if Caitlin Moran thinks she's such a groovy feminist icon now?

In the Ecuadorian embassy, sorry.

When did he get to Ecuador? shock. I thought he was still trapped in the embassy. <behind the times>

Ahh! Who knows what she said though. Has she made any statements about him?

Didn't the soldier who nicked all the US military stuff that wikileaks published record them onto disks labeled as Gaga's music?

Cocked up my title, sorry.

I suppose she sees him as a freedom fighter like Naomi Wolf does. Which obviously means that it doesn't matter if he's a bit rapey.

Yes, I believe so. I only read that today though, that there was that connection.

Why has lady gaga gone to see a wanted rapist?

I was so disappointed to read this. Is there never going to be a good (pop singer) role model for my DDs?

If they're not half naked, they are hanging out with rapists or going back to the men that beat them up.

She seems like the kind of person who likes to `hear it from the horses mouth' I will be interested to see how it unravels _ I have never been a massive fan as I have always thought she plays the game well, this could enhance or undermine what people think but I need to hear more.

Blimey, I came running onto thread to find out how they managed to smuggle him out!

Oh lady g. She done good the other week with her taking a stand against body fascism. That was awesome. This on the other hand....

ladygaga even said she isn't a feminist quote: "I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture– beer, bars, and muscle cars."

But what I want to know is what is it about wanting equal rights for women does lady gaga not agree with? Or is it because she's so rich she doesn't appreciate women who aren't rich are victims of the patriarchy?

Frans1980 "ladygaga even said she isn't a feminist quote: "I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture– beer, bars, and muscle cars."

Feminism is seen by many as all about hating men.
