My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way rocks cheerleader dress during concert (pagesix.com)

Fans praised the frontman, who wrote about their “gender identity issues” in 2015, for “embracing his femininity” with the preppy skirted style.

What do you think?

They trade their souls for fame so a cheerleader outfit, no matter how humiliating, is just some of the things asked of them to keep their fame. Same with harry styles. Sad

Remember when Queen did that whole video and they were all dressed as women? Granted, Freddy was gay, but the rest of the guys?
In opera, boys were castrated so they could sing in the higher ranges but with the lung power of a man, they were called castrati and highly celebrated for centuries.
Chinese theater did not allow women to play any parts, men were in drag.
The long, long game of the Dragons have been emasculating men for centuries. They just are more blatant about it now and the whole gender confusion/sexuality confusion is presented as the reason why these men are dressing like this.
WE all know it’s a humiliation ritual designed to control them and tell us something. AND to keep pushing to eliminate any Alpha-ness from the male population. Strong, masculine men will fight back to protect women and children, it’s a natural instinct. So now everyone is gender confused or neutral, masculinity is ‘toxic’, women is the future, and on and on ad nauseum.

They wouldn’t let the women and children watch theater either. It was because they saw actors as insane and hedonistic even back then. My theory is in Greece they knew to link acting with the Dionysus cult who were mainly made up of women. Dionysus was believed in some myths to have kidnapped women and their children and force them to follow him and if they refused he would kill their children. They didn’t want their women and children getting close to Dionysus while still enjoying the craft or avoiding the gods triggers since he was a certified serial killer who found his loophole by bringing victims back to life afterwards which caused them to go insane.

Sort of surprising that this band is still around. They were popular when I was in middle school and high school, 10-15 years ago. At that time, many of the tween and teen girls were “in love” with Gerard Way. I always thought the music was trash and he was not visually appealing at all.
Anyway, I heard from a friend a few years ago (who was a fan of the band at one time), that Way was a known groomer/likely pedophile. She told me about going to see MCR in concert, how all the hordes of teen girls were screaming and cheering for the band, and the adult men onstage were loving it. How they were inviting girls backstage and onto the tour bus.
It’s sick… I feel like part of my aversion to it during its heyday (besides the music just being s###), was because I sensed the undercurrent of that creepy culture. I never understood what regular grown man would be happy, as a supposed artist, to have his entire fanbase comprised of teenagers. What does that say about the quality of the art?
That mindless idolization was a huge component of the emo subculture. I honestly think many of these bands worked as a convenient way for their members to have easy access to legions of “damaged” teen girls, due to the lyrical content being explicitly designed to appeal to them.

Male rockstars have been doing this for years. The hair and makeup in the 80s?

Not like this. Who, in your memory, rocks these knocked knees? No, they were all leather or spandex clad and women and men could look and imagine they saw whatever they wanted to see. They were deliberately bisexual and it sold like mad. Does this silly pic get your motor running? If it does, may I call a (911) cab for you?
I don’t mean to be rude or offensive and I do see your point, but even this stance is off. Compare David Lee Roth (or any of them) to this.
Possibly Boy George, but he was presented as a caricature.
This pic deliberately looks awkward, could something else be happening as an undercurrent here?

Or maybe it’s just saying, yay, we won, you all are THIS ridiculous. I could easily believe that too.

There are still bands that are deliberately bisexual and sell like mad, lgbtq+-%*’: is what makes the money currently. What a condescending comment, the truth is your musical knowledge is narrow, this line is the continuation of the glamrock era with the same agenda but i guess that’s hard for you to understand. I call you a 911 for being cringe
