Very disappointed with Katy
« on: November 15, 2016, 01:38:09 AM »
I am very disappointed  to find out that Katy donated $10,000 to Planned Parenthood.  I will start off by saying that I am not trying to change anybody's opinion on abortion.  I realize that people have strong opinions on that issue, rightfully so, and I do not have the power to change your opinion.

For those of you who don't know, Katy's mother, Mary, had an abortion when she was in college, according to the book that she wrote, "Joyful Parent = Happy Home".  Mary deeply regrets her abortion, and it caused her a lot of anguish during her college days.  Also, according to the book, the abortion procedure that was used back then usually caused permanent infertility.  That would have meant that Katy never would have been able to be born, if not for the miracle that Mary's abortion did not cause infertility.

I feel that Katy is extremely hypocritical for supporting Planned Parenthood.  First of all, does she not understand or care how much anguish her mother's abortion caused her?  Does Katy not care that would have had another (half) sibling if not for her mother's abortion?  Does Katy not care that if the abortion caused infertility, she herself would have never been born?  Do the posters on this board not care that Katy would have never been born?

Katy claims that she went to Planned Parenthood to receive women's health services that she otherwise could not afford.  I do not believe that is a true statement.  Once Katy was legally independent of her parents, she would have had almost no income of her own at all, and would have almost certainly qualified for Medicaid.  For those of you not from the US, Medicaid is a health insurance program for low income people who otherwise cannot afford insurance.

Furthermore, I find it extremely annoying that she only donated $10,000 while acting as if it's a huge amount of money.  Given her net worth, $10,000 is a negligible amount of money.  I feel that Katy is donating that money not to actually support a cause that she supports for some sick reason, but rather to keep up appearances to her feminist fans.  Katy Perry in the past asserted that she was not a feminist.  Maybe she wanted more men to become fans of hers.  Then, when it became convenient to her, she all of a sudden becomes a feminist, and acts as if the views of others no longer matter to her.

The world, specially this forum, was more at peace without you posting. But alas, you're posting again. Why do you keep posting that STUFF here? Go ahead and say what you wanna say, but WE are DISAPPOINTED you keep coming back to vocalize THOSE words. I feel that you come here not to kindly interact and support Katy, but rather continue to annoy and pick trivial fights on things Katy CHOSE to do.

Stop.

Please.

Katy was a young teen when she visited PP. Katy obviously doesn't agree with her parents on everything religious/political these days. PP does assist with abortions, yet Katy didn't mention that... cuz ya know what! There's a huge negative stigma over them that that is ALL they do. Katy showed me they do so much more. If my friends and I had something like that as young teens, wow, a lot of us could have different lives now...

Katy isn't a horrible person. I'm sure there are choices she makes that have some strategy to them, but she does NOT lie or do something to JUST look good. Seriously. This far along and you think THAT about Katy? I feel THAT is a big reason why you seem to question nearly everything she does and basically hold it against her.

Why I actually responded to you... I don't know. *sigh*

soooo you're mad she donated to planned parenthood....and then you go on to complain that the amount she donated was not enough. I'm confused. Do you want her to donate or not? You cant have it both ways lmao
Also,you do understand that abortions are only a very small percentage of what PP does right? They offer SO MUCH more than that.... cancer screenings,birth control ect. They've helped MANY women and it's a bit concerning to me that you dont seem to grasp how important that could be for women that cannot afford basic health care. It could literally be life or death. Maybe research something the next time you decide to speak out against it

Why are you complaining about how much Katy donated? What are you, her accountant? It's HER decision as to how much SHE donates to PP, not yours. 

Another thing, like Katy's gonna care if you're disappointed that she donated to PP. They do SO much more then abortions. If you read about it you'll know but you're too busy nitpicking everything Katy chooses to do to even know notice that.

Leave the forum cause we sure do NOT want you around here critizing everything Katy does.

I personally feel that the board would be more peaceful without you.  But, unlike you, I understand that not everybody is going to have the same views as me, and that you have as much of a right to post as I do.

She was a supposed Christian singer back then.  Sounds like she wasn't practicing what she was preaching.

Do you agree that I am justified in liking Katy less when she strategically does something that I don't agree with?  When she basically tells me that I don't matter?

For that matter, why does Katy no longer talk about Kitty Purry?  Did some bully like Dr. Luke tell her to stop talking about her?

In any case, why doesn't anybody on this board have any compassion for Mary and what she went through?  Katy certainly doesn't seem to have any compassion toward her, and neither do you.

I don't want her to donate anything to Planned Parenthood.  But my point is that everybody is acting like $10,000 is so much money, when it is absolutely nothing compared to her net worth.  I've donated more to charity compared to my net worth, as have probably most people, but the media doesn't care about us.  My point is that Katy's $10,000 donation will not make any meaningful change to anybody's life.  But she is doing it to appease her feminist fans, while telling the rest of us that we don't matter.  After she repeatedly claimed not to be a feminist.  My problem is more that Katy is being an opportunist to appease one group of people, while telling the rest of us that we don't matter.  I would respect her more if she just merely had views that I didn't agree with, rather than being an opportunist.

I also hope you realize that celebrities such as Katy (and, I have heard Katy's name mentioned in particular) cost Hillary Clinton the election.  Trump winning was a rejection of celebrity culture.  People, such as myself, are tired of celebrities, such as Katy, who know nothing about the issues, telling the rest of us that we don't matter.

Planned Parenthood is not the only provider that provides those services.  If insurance is the issue, then Katy should have applied for Medicaid.  She would have been eligible if she was as broke as she claims to have been.  Then again, I never believed that Katy was nearly as poor as she wants us to believe.

It is also my decision which albums to buy, what concerts to attend, and, most importantly, who to vote for.

No.  I have much of a right to post here as you do.  And, I am allowed to express unpopular opinions if I choose to.

Again: why does nobody have any compassion for Mary?

I don't see this post anymore, but somebody accused me of lying, and asked how I knew about Mary's abortion and subsequent anguish.  That was in the book that Mary wrote, "Joyful Parent = Happy Home".  You may wish to read the book before calling me a liar.

That is not true at all.  I have always been positive about Katy.  I have always said that she deserved a Grammy, but everybody else just accused me of whining, and that Adele and others were somehow more worthy than Katy.  I have always said that Unconditionally would have been a huge hit if its release was timed properly, but again, everybody just accused me of whining, and said that it wasn't that good a song, when a year earlier they coronated it the best song ever.  Seems I'm the positive one.

Luckily, most Americans are smart enough to think for themselves, and not to let a celebrity tell them who to vote for.

As I have said, I have posted a lot of positive things about Katy, but I get labeled as "whining" when I do so.  Try looking at my post history from when Prism was released and when I attended the Prismatic World Tour.  More recently, I haven't had as much positive to post about Katy, since she has done nothing in the past year but try to influence low information voters into voting for a politician who I don't like.

Here are 2 links showing that Katy said "I am not a feminist".  You may want to check your facts before calling me a liar:
http://www.thefrisky.com/2012-12-03/katy-perry-im-not-a-feminist/
http://jezebel.com/5964727/katy-perry-billboards-woman-of-the-year-is-not-a-feminist

That is just 2 links.  There are many more.

I never said that a feminist is the most awful thing somebody can be.  I would respect Katy if she always had a certain belief, even one that I disagree with.  I cannot respect her for being an opportunist and appeasing one group of fans, knowing that the rest of us have nowhere to go.

You still have not answered: why do you have no compassion toward Mary?

I don't want her to donate anything to Planned Parenthood.  But my point is that everybody is acting like $10,000 is so much money, when it is absolutely nothing compared to her net worth.  I've donated more to charity compared to my net worth, as have probably most people, but the media doesn't care about us.  My point is that Katy's $10,000 donation will not make any meaningful change to anybody's life.  But she is doing it to appease her feminist fans, while telling the rest of us that we don't matter.  After she repeatedly claimed not to be a feminist.  My problem is more that Katy is being an opportunist to appease one group of people, while telling the rest of us that we don't matter.  I would respect her more if she just merely had views that I didn't agree with, rather than being an opportunist.

I also hope you realize that celebrities such as Katy (and, I have heard Katy's name mentioned in particular) cost Hillary Clinton the election.  Trump winning was a rejection of celebrity culture.  People, such as myself, are tired of celebrities, such as Katy, who know nothing about the issues, telling the rest of us that we don't matter.

Also,you do understand that abortions are only a very small percentage of what PP does right? They offer SO MUCH more than that.... cancer screenings,birth control ect. They've helped MANY women and it's a bit concerning to me that you dont seem to grasp how important that could be for women that cannot afford basic health care. It could literally be life or death. Maybe research something the next time you decide to speak out against it

Planned Parenthood is not the only provider that provides those services.  If insurance is the issue, then Katy should have applied for Medicaid.  She would have been eligible if she was as broke as she claims to have been.  Then again, I never believed that Katy was nearly as poor as she wants us to believe.
If all you're going to do is critise Katy then why are you here? You consider yourself a fan but I have never seen you say anything positive about her at all. You come here to start fights with people and then get angry when people don't want to see your point of view. Being a feminist does NOT by any means make somebody stupid and it's quite insulting that you feel it does. She has never said she was no a feminist. In fact she's made it clear she is so I'm not sure where you're getting your information from. I'm honestly sick and tired of seeing your posts about how awful feminism is as if that's the worst possible thing someone can be. It's getting old.

As I have said, I have posted a lot of positive things about Katy, but I get labeled as "whining" when I do so.  Try looking at my post history from when Prism was released and when I attended the Prismatic World Tour.  More recently, I haven't had as much positive to post about Katy, since she has done nothing in the past year but try to influence low information voters into voting for a politician who I don't like.

Here are 2 links showing that Katy said "I am not a feminist".  You may want to check your facts before calling me a liar:

That is just 2 links.  There are many more.

I never said that a feminist is the most awful thing somebody can be.  I would respect Katy if she always had a certain belief, even one that I disagree with.  I cannot respect her for being an opportunist and appeasing one group of fans, knowing that the rest of us have nowhere to go.

You still have not answered: why do you have no compassion toward Mary?
So because she supports a politician you don't that means everyone that supports that same politcian is of low intelligence. You got a real problem buddy if you believe people that do not share the same opinion as you are stupid. Katy has shown time and time again that she is a feminist. You ignore that because to you all feminist are evil and you don't want to associate Katy with something you believe to be so terrible, even though feminism is nothing but a positive movement that has helped women across the globe for decades and has continued to do so. I dont understand how Mary's experiences are supposed to prove that abortion is an awful thing or how it is supposed to influence Katy's views in it but just because she regrets it does not mean every single woman in the world that has had an abortion does. It is a personal choice that needs to be carefully considered. It isn't for everyone but it comes down to being able to make that choice and not having someone else decide it for you.
