you’re not dumb it’s okay

i mean first of all the song plays into the idea of girl/girl kissing, sexual activity, etc. being something taboo, like she literally says “it’s not what good girls do,” “it felt so wrong” like she’s being daring and doing something risque, which is a problem because queerness is overly sexualized anyway. like the whole straight person argument of “how will i explain this to my kids?” comes from a place of thinking that queerness is something inherently adult and sexual, and she’s feeding into that with those lyrics. a girl kissing a boy isn’t PG-13 you know what i mean, but two girls kissing is, and she’s reinforcing that.

secondly the song and the video objectify women, specifically queer women, in a big way. you can tell the entire thing is for the male gaze, with her sort of grinning in a coy way and saying “hope my boyfriend won’t mind it” and saying about the girl she supposedly kissed “i don’t even know your name / it doesn’t matter / you’re my experimental game” which really strips the other girl in the situation of her humanity entirely

and the male gaze is problematic beyond that as well, because it reinforces the stereotype that girls engage in romantic/sexual activity with other girls just to get attention from men/to please men. the fact that she wakes up in bed with a man at the end of the video is sort of the culmination of all of this, like okay i had my fun being a bad girl but now i’ll go back to my man because that’s what “good girls” do.

idk if i said all of that very well and this got really long but basically the song

  1. reinforces the idea that queerness is something taboo and naughty, while heterosexuality is good and pure
  2. objectifies women, especially queer women
  3. feeds into the male gaze and upholds the stereotype that girl/girl relationships/sexual activity/etc. is all for the benefit of men/for male attention

i hope that makes sense!! and obviously this is all irks me especially as a young bisexual woman, because stuff like this is what prevents us from being taken seriously and keeps people thinking that we’re just straight girls trying to get attention or that we’re just confused which can obviously be the case but definitely is not necessarily the case.

Basically, Katy Perry is terrible on so many levels.

For me and my friends growing up, being told things like ‘you have to wear this because that’s what boys wear” or “dresses are for not for your body type” was frustrating and a pretty bad time.




The bottom line for me is, if someone feels happier and more comfortable in a particular ‘type’ of uniform, then that’s something that should be encouraged, not punished. Students have enough to focus on at school, having to fight to be yourself shouldn’t be added to that.



That’s why we’ve launched a new campaign called Gender is Not Uniform.
