On Adam Polaski's post "'Glee' Movie Continues LGBT Exclusion in 'Born This Way,'" noting that one line was removed from Lady Gaga's song "Born This Way": "No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgender life, I'm on the right track baby, I was born to survive," luminum comments:
Though to respond to your question "What's the point!?", you might wonder even with the lyric included, what the point of the song is. The fact that it's apparently written to be pro-LGBT makes sense, but then she also throws in everything else: income level, race, ethnicity. So it becomes a pretty diluted message about "everyone is great" with no real thrust in particular for LGBT issues specifically. It doesn't really make sense that it's a LGBT anthem, since its lyrics, by weight, are equally distributed to everyone under the sun.
Of course, the LGBT aspect has more weight because of the "born this way" line being commonly associated with the LGBT struggle (nor does it really make sense that people who are poor, black, white, "beige", "Cholas", Lebanese or "Orientals" need to be reaffirmed that they were "born this way"). But that's an issue with her thought process and writing that she hasn't acknowledged either short of calling critics "haters".
This comment made me wonder whether the song, and the show itself, are really so LGBT positive, or are we just so starved for attention that anything that mentions us somewhere without the usual negativity seems wonderful. What say you, Projectors? What does it mean that they left us out of Glee: The Movie?
