Any more than the so called ‘pregnant man’ is a man. So why does the media wish us to believe that she is? And what is it about the media’s agenda that makes it point out the fact that Chaz is out with her girlfriend? Lots of people go out on dates every day. Millions of them. But the press only cares about such things when they are attempting to make a point. So, again, what point is the media trying to make when it informs us that
Cher was snapped with her son Chaz and his girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, at an art show for her other son, Elijah Blue, in LA on Wednesday night.
What they are attempting to persuade us concerning is, it seems, that 1) Chaz is actually a male. She isn’t. 2) That she dates a woman, while pretending to be a man. And that it’s all cool. Coolness, acceptance, that really is the aim or goal of such reports. And 3), that a very attractive woman will go out with a very unattractive one for publicity or money in the same way that a beautiful young woman will marry a sickly and ugly old man.
But why? Why is acceptance of such behavior so important? What drives the press to wish such things were approved of? Simply because they aren’t. And they aren’t for very good reasons, chief of which, such things are distortions of the truth.
When a lie is promoted as the truth and when distortion is paraded as acceptable then the purpose of such promotion is clear: the replacement of authentic behavior with false. The press wants us to believe a falsehood. And people would frequently rather believe a lie, even embracing it, than the truth. Because a lie allows us to live in the delusion that we are right no matter how wrong.
