The song I Kissed a Girl (and I liked it) really stirred some things up when it hit number one. Suddenly, bisexuality seemed normal and cute.
Us girls we are so magical, soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable, too good to deny it
Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent.
Is heterosexual bigotry finally over? Probably not in that Katy Perry makes it clear that in the song she was drunk, “lost her discretion” and it was an “experimental game” that she hopes her boyfriend “won’t mind.” It is still revolutionary to have a woman singing about another woman’s cherry chap stick on Pop radio.
