PLANET OF THE LOST (3.14): Paradise lost

Will discovers the hell he thought was the Land of the Lost just became heaven.

Stopped taking pictures long ago

We’ll probably be there tomorrow

I guess I’m having fun, I don’t know

It’s hard to tell anymore

.

Don’t panic from the static

In the air, it’s not there

It’s just a subtle form of insanity

Nobody ever told us that our heads would start to rot

As we see everything repeating

.

Can’t stand no more

It’s never ending

Can’t stand anymore

Let’s go do it over again

Let’s go do it over again

.

Late night TV is such a bore

Seems like I’ve seen it all before

Don’t know if I can take this anymore

I think my mind is going

.

Nothing’s funny but my smile’s glued on

I don’t bother taking it off at night

Nobody ever told me that my head would start to rot

Where’s a poltergeist when you need it?

.

Can’t stand no more

It’s never ending

Can’t stand anymore

Let’s go do it over again

Let’s go do it over again

.

I’m gonna go lay down in front of the tires

Be a doll and get some chicken wire

Tie me up in case I change my mind

Trust me, you’ll join me in time

.

As much as you think I’m being too dramatic

You’ll be the only one hearing static

You think I’m joking but then again at least it

Couldn’t happen all over again

.

Love you, mean it

But it’s never ending

Love you, mean it

Let’s go do it over again

Let’s go do it over again

What is paradise?

Are we living in paradise right now?

Is paradise a state of mind?

Why do we have stories and legends of paradise lost and lost paradises? The most widely known one is that of our supposed origin:

Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden

Was this paradise?


Why does it look like a Thomas Kinkaid painting?

And how did we lose it?


Adam, I know it makes absolutely no sense to create a tree for the sole purpose of forbidding humans from it, but that will not excuse you from disrupting my bowling night with your shenanegans. My young, ahem, “friends” are very upset, especially Eduardo here. Now scram!

.

.

Our loss was blamed on the feminine:

.

And it was the feminine who corrupted the masculine (who kinda gets absolved from blame for being, well… masculine):

What’s that you want me to do, naked only woman on the planet? You want me to eat the apple, naked only woman on the planet? I love you too, naked only woman on the planet.

.

Our punishment was expulsion, clothing, and making the female look and feel like she got hit by a freight train after childbirth.

Don’t be sad, clothed only woman on the planet. I know that being white and sexually repressed means we’re destined to become Protestants, but I say we go to South America and sow the seeds of Mormonism.

Why was the feminine singled out and emphasized in getting the blame? Lemme tell you, if there’s a gender that will do something really stupid to get humanity kicked out of paradise, it’s the dude.

And why such a specific guardian of paradise – the flaming sword?

.

More specifically, a spinning flaming sword:

You could say it’s creating a ring of fire.


Hm… a Pacific Ring of Fire?

.

.

Is the lost continent of Mu the mythical Garden of Eden?


Quite possibly.

Mu was known as the “motherland” of humanity, and supposedly that’s where we got our start. But personally I believe the connection of Mu/Eden/Mother runs deeper than that. I feel that the loss of Mu was the loss of our “mother” – our connection to this Earth and the higher vibrations of reality that connection had.

What does the word Mu evoke in your mind? “Moo” – a cow – milk. The norm of children drinking cow’s milk today is only a very recent one, whereas in the past we simply got it from mom:

A painting by Picasso. My favorite quote by Picasso:

“The chief enemy of creativity is good taste.”

.

And what is the only sound a grown man baby can make to express his happiness while suckling the fruit of a woman?

MMMMMM.

.

And from that we have the California Milk Processors Board playing around with our collective subconscious:

Mutopia?

Hmm… If there was ever a depiction of what Mu probably looked like, this comes pretty damn close. Although I doubt we as human beings looked like this:

.

There is also the muumuu, a dress worn by Pacific Island women:

.

Well, and Homer Simpson:

This is what the shapers of my reality are turning the masculine into.

.

age of volcanoes not so fun fact: Anorexia among women was non-existent on the islands of Samoa until a little something called television came along. Researchers have even traced it back to a single show: Baywatch.

.

.

Mu/Eden/Mother/Earth

.

The Earth is our mother, and that would make the Sun our grandmother.

I love you Grandma! You bring forth life, warmth, and bikini models.

.

.

Why is it that throughout history we have always regarded the Sun as masculine? Did somebody peek inside it’s underwear? [Official term is sunderwear”] The Sun bore the Earth and all the planets from HER belly, and is a creative, nurturing, life-giving entity. I believe humanity’s masculine, god-king persona projection upon the Sun is part of the degeneration programming we’ve been subjected to by the shapers of our reality. It makes us view the Sun as something separate from us, controlling and vengeful, and not the nurturing matriarch of our family (The Solar System).

.

.

However, our family includes one aunt who seems to be a disruptive foster child….

Selene/La Luna/The Moon

.

If one examines the “gender” humanity has assigned each planet and moon in our Solar System, they roughly yet appropriately correspond. Obviously, the shapers of our reality couldn’t get away with labeling Jupiter “feminine” because humanity just couldn’t accept it like we did with the Sun being “masculine.” But one might argue that Venus, being “feminine” (and the goddess of beauty), should be a hospitable, life-bearing world rather than the volcanic hot-house of toxic gas it is currently. Venus has the potential of being a life bearing world just like our mother Earth. She just needs to go through puberty a little bit longer….


Work it, girl!

.

.

.

Venus has those wonderful life-nurturing planetary breasts we call volcanoes. Volcanoes are actually more creative than they are destructive. The soil around volcanoes is highly rich with nutrients. That’s why the islands of the Pacific (most notably Hawaii) are the most lush and beautiful in the world. Volcanoes (sorry Vulcan) are predominately feminine.

.

The Hawaiian volcano goddess Pele

.

.

living tiki personal note: the living tiki’s most favorite volcanoes are on an island chain along the Pacific Ring of Fire called Japan:

Mount Fuji

It’s in the background, people… sheesh! It’s the only volcano in the picture. The volcanism of Mount Fuji however, like the Japanese sports bra industry, is dormant.

.

.

What?… are you thinking I could have found a better photo of Mount Fuji? But how else would I provide reference for the Japanese volcanoes producing these familiar-looking formations?

Congealed volcanic lava, expelled from nearby Mount Urizen.

age of volcanoes fun fact: In the Japanese seaside town of Reihoku, at least one of these formations has been dubbed Oppai Ishi, which means “breast stone.”

OK, maybe I could have used a different photo of Mount Fuji. But if you’re familiar with my blog, you do know I have a fondness for the ladies from the land of the rising sun.

But yet the more I learn about Japan, the more I’m thinking I shouldn’t visit there. I just don’t know if my, um, heart could take the strain…

Oh man, first day of my Japan vacation and already I’m seeing Japanese women do erotic things with breast shaped things. I need to cool off with a shower… Maybe something to eat in that nearby mall will divert the blood flow….


OK, forget eating… maybe just some tea.


Wait… what? I really need to get out of here….


Excuse me miss, which way out of the food cour… AAAHHH!

.

There’s some arcade games! Yeah, that will take my mind off of…

What…. WHY?! This is the toy section!


They have collectible plushies? I’ve got to get back to my hotel room.

No, not this way….

.

Not that way either….

.

There’s the exit… just need to make it by the girl with the hat.

Konichiwa.

.

Whew! Back in my room! Time for a nice cool shower.

.

What? Why would they give me these sponges with my towel? Is this some kind of cruel joke?!

.

Nope, this is just Japan.

.

.

But what about La Luna? (You may have forgotten we were talking about celestial bodies here – C’mon, people… focus!)

She seems to be anything but feminine. Freezing and blistering, dry, lifeless, colorless….

.

Why is the Moon a she? Well first, when it comes to dead moons, you can apply either “gender” equally. But our moon isn’t like the little captured potato-shaped asteroids of Mars; Phobos and Deimos. It’s almost a planet unto itself. Like a dark twin, or more like the Earth’s seductive stepsister….

Wait… stepsister?


Despite billions of dollars, numerous trips, and lots of fancy equipment left on the Moon, NASA still won’t tell us doesn’t know how the Moon was formed. There’s a lot of paranormal speculation that, since it’s too big to have been captured by the Earth’s gravitational field and is very different in composition from the Earth, it was actually artificially placed in it’s current orbit, and therefore might be artificial itself. I will discuss this potentiality in a later post, but for now I’ll leave you with a few oddities to ponder:

First, have you ever wondered why our moon is both the perfect size and distance to perfectly (and predictably) eclipse the Sun?

.

How about it’s orbit and rotation synchronizing to only have one hemisphere facing the Earth at all times?

.

Finally, take a look at this (false color) photo of the far side of the Moon:

Doesn’t it look like someone had a turquoise colored bowling ball that they rolled around in cornmeal and left out in a sprinkling rain? What’s the deal with the Moon being perfectly smooth and round like that? Why very few deep impact craters? And why do we find those strange structures in the exact middle of some of those “flat” craters? [You can see at least two in this photo]

.

The evil shapers of our reality made the Moon “feminine” to be their false substitute for the Sun. She takes the nourishing light from grandma and reflects it back mysteriously and seductively. If La Luna were a real woman, she would be the “crazy in the head, crazy in bed” type [A LUNAtic]. We falsely believe her light is nourishing (and nothing like grandma’s light, I’ll tell you that!), but much like the inviting, hypnotic city lights of Las Vegas, she will ultimately drain you.

.

Her crescent shape evokes the vulva, and the womb.

.

And although her “womb” is barren, she can still be sexier than the Sun during spring break.

.

The Moon has been given (by the evil ones) the occult feminine persona of Satan in the form of the ever present Isis/Venus/Diana/Mary/Columbia goddess archetype. You know the one… she kinda looks like this:

Since Columbia is the feminine persona of Lucifer, she can’t generate her own light but instead steals it from the Creator and falsely presents it as her own. Like Lucifer, she is the “light-bringer.”

Columbia was the false mother goddess injected upon America during it’s formation. The evil ones didn’t want Americans to think of their “motherland” as a loving spirit of fruited plains and purple mountains majesty, they wanted us to think of America as a goddess who requires sacrifice:

.

Now you know why there is a street named Columbia in your town. Or maybe your town is named Columbia. Or your county. Or province. Or country. Or capital. Or river. Or lake. Or movie studio. Or record company. Or TV network. Or space shuttle….


Interesting…. I’ve talked about three space shuttles in this series so far, and the only one that hasn’t blown up is named Atlantis.

What is the Land of the Lost connection to all this? It’s a major theme of the show: The loss of mother/home.

Rick, Will, and Holly Marshall look concerned in every direction for a way back home to mom.

In the series, the mother of the Marshall family is neither dead nor separated, she just (oddly) decided to pass up this particular “routine expedition” with the rest of the family. Missing their mother made the Marshall children very sad at times, and a few episodes were about strange women attempting to trick the family by manipulating the family’s desperate longing for mother/home.

Such as a female robot fashioned by the Zarn made to lure the father away:

You gotta hand it to the Zarn, he knew his 70’s fashion!

One episode even had the goddess Medusa:

Probably the only nice strange woman the family met in the Land of the Lost was the future self of Holly:

Now, by “nice” I mean kind and helpful, but I’m also employing the masculine use of the word as well (spoken with a resonant guttural inflection):

NICE!

Hey… I’m not the only one who was um, fond of future Holly:

A drawing by “ScienceOfficerSmith” (A girl!… although I’m thinking her fondness is for future Holly’s hair.)

.

.

What is all this deceptive woman/mother/goddess stuff about? It’s why Eve got the blame in Eden. It’s the shapers of our reality attempting to separate humanity from our connection to our true mother:

.

Imagine the Earth as a dude. You can’t. There’s just too much creative/nurturing life energy. Daughter Earth is a unique manifestation of Mother Sun. And since we are the fruit of the Earth, so too is Daughter Human a unique manifestation of Mother Earth:

.

The male of humanity is more like a worker/soldier/consort bee of this queen bee colony hive we call Earth, whereas the female carries forth the legacy of the queen/hive.

.

But what if this Earth/mother/human female had been corrupted in some way? Sinful? Unclean?

What if her corruption was her own conscious choice?

Shoot, if the Earth’s gonna be a whore, we might as well go ahead and treat her like one!

.

.

.

This attitude towards our Earth “mother” is a reflection of the attitude we have developed towards the human manifestations of our mother Earth: women. ALL women are reflections of mother Earth: Her atmosphere flows through their lungs, her salty seas wash in their veins, and her Circadian Rhythm is in their beat. But as I illustrated in my Star Wars postings, the evil ones want women to believe (among other things) they need to be whores in order to attract men instead of simply realizing that Mother Nature/Earth DESIGNED them to just stand there and still attract men. (Unfortunately, that’s working less and less these days because the evil ones have been socially engineering men as well.)

.

.

The cave men of 20,000 years ago knew that their women were manifestations of the Earth by carving fertility idols like The Venus of Willendorf:

(But personally I think we’re looking at stone-age porn for when the mammoth hunt took longer than expected….)

Grok carve good. Grok sleep good tonight. But woman look not complete. Grok carve all part he remember and miss much. What Grok forget? Think, Grok, think. Maybe something near head cover.

.

.

The evil ones also have worked in a myth about volcanoes in their attempts to make the Earth seem more vengefully masculine: Sacrificing female virgins.

.

Although I’m more than certain virgin sacrifice is readily conducted by the world’s evil elite, I’m hard pressed to find any historical information that virgins were actually sacrificed to volcanoes to appease some angry volcano god. Human sacrifice may have happened with volcanoes, I’m just saying it sounds like a Hollywood creation. At the very least it projects a wrathful, jealous, ugly persona to mother Earth.


.

.

Hollywood had a movie specifically about volcano sacrifice:

And even though it produced a pretty cool quote:

It also had an emotional bit of dialog which emphasized what I’ve been talking about:

In this scene, Tom Hanks is lost at sea and delirious, and starts talking to what he believes is the Creator. But as you can see, it looks like he’s addressing the Moon. In other words, even though he is riding upon the amniotic fluid of his “true” creator and should be thanking the Earth for making his soul able to exist in this physical realm, he’s thanking some invisible god who had nothing to do with anything. Even the Creator, who made everything, would probably prefer you to show your gratitude instead towards one of the creations sHe is more proud of…

.

.

.

Cinematic volcano/virgin sacrifice is also reflected in the three film versions of King Kong:


Sorry Naomi, you make a pretty sexy sacrifice, but my favorite will always be Jessica:

.

King Kong (re)introduced another element into the human psyche as well: The primitive and savage lost world, represented most often as a tropical island.

Skull Island.

.

.

In both of these versions, the island was overrun with vegetation and a myriad of out-of-time creatures.

.

And the flora was so lush, it seemed almost dreamlike.

.

Yet the island also reveals an old civilization which was once more advanced, but now had degenerated into savagery. This degeneration began with the islanders worshiping Kong as a god, fearing him and devoting their culture to him.

.

In the first two King Kong films, this lost civilization theme was kept within the realm of what we consider “primitive.” But in the latest version, Peter Jackson covertly revealed a few hints that this lost civilization may be what remained of Mu or Atlantis:

Only if you pay attention do you realize the island has overgrown an ancient advanced civilization with megalithic architecture, paved roads, and aqueducts. The current inhabitants might not have even been from Skull Island.

There’s also an animated King Kong film which isn’t as subtle:

.

But how does one find out about a real lost civilization from their past if one lives in a reality with controllers who don’t want you to know that humanity used to be much, much more than we are today?

.

Well, they can’t suppress your collective subconscious or psychic intuition. They can only distort and confuse them…

This is an illustrated scene from Avatar. It kind of looks like the tree bridge scene from King Kong, doesn’t it? It also kind of looks like a Thomas Kinkaid painting, like I pointed out with the painting of Eden at the top of this post. Who is Thomas Kinkaid? Let me tell you by showing one of his works, which I know you’ve seen before:


Oh yeah, that’s right, the “painter of light” guy.

Thomas Kinkaid started out as a somewhat decent artist, but then turned into a money whore. What happened is that he stumbled upon a visual formula which resonates in the collective human psyche. I know this because, as an artist myself, I think his art is beyond cheesy but yet I’m still drawn to that visual style – A tranquil setting awash in dramatic glowing light and pastel color, with everything seeming so alive. It’s the same reason Maxfield Parrish is so popular:

.

That visual style is also how Mu is commonly depicted:

.

As well as Space Brother planets:

.

And that’s why James Cameron decided he could be even more of a money whore by capitalizing on this visual style too:

.

Time and again, Mu and Atlantis are described as existing on Earth during a period where the planet’s energy vibrated at a higher frequency. Everything seemed more alive and vibrant. That’s why Space Brother alien planets are depicted that way, because the aliens have supposedly advanced to a higher state of existence in this physical plane.

I feel that the reason these paintings have become so popular is due to a psychic/subconscious remembrance of this higher vibrational state of being. But before Avatar, there was a number of artists from California and Hawaii who saw dollar signs too:

Wyland:

.

And James Coleman:

Coleman utilized themes the other painters used such as the landscapes being either at sunrise/sunset, the light coming entirely from the Moon, or lighthouses. (In other words, the light is distorted, not the true source, or a “guiding light.”)

.

La Luna is bringing the light to Hawaii, not the Sun:

.

.

There is also the art of Christian Lassen….

….who is so not gay:

.

.

Now some of you may think I’m being a bit harsh on these artists because I’m jealous or something, and that they couldn’t possibly have connections to the evil powers that be and they’re painting what they love which is nature and oceans and dolphins and um, Mickey Mouse….

Lassen sells out.

.

Coleman sells out.

.

Coleman sells out to other affiliates of the Disney mega-empire.

.

age of volcanoes fun fact: George Lucas, money whore for Disney, employed Frank Oz, creator of the Muppets, to provide the movements and voice for Yoda.

.

Wyland sells out:

But Wyland wasn’t content with merely selling out to the evil shapers of our reality. He claims to be an environmental artist, but he most often uses and recommends Hawaiian koa wood to frame his crappy art (A former landlord even claims Wyland tore out koa wallboards and fixtures from his rental to make picture frames).


.

Koa is only found on Hawaii. It’s very beautiful, but kind of rare.

You don’t want to be ripping out these trees just to make anything.

.

.

Here’s Taylor Swift with a koa guitar:

.

But Wyland, Mr. Environment, doesn’t see koa trees. He sees money.

A number of years ago, Wyland donated artwork to California and Florida for them to use on specialized license plates to generate money for environmental protection programs in each State:

Wyland poses with his wealth, his kick-ass Detroit T-shirt, his whale tail devil-horns logo hat, and his license plate painting of a whale’s tail splashing in the water which took him all of five minutes.

The States got to charge extra for the plates, and Wyland got free exposure. Last year, Wyland seems to have forgotten what the words “charity donation” mean because he started demanding, then suing, to get paid for his art. Florida caved-in and gave him tens of thousands of dollars, but I love the response California gave him: “The State of California is not in the business of dealing with prima donnas.”

.

Now, if you thought Wyland was bad, let’s get back to Thomas Kinkaid who decided to out Disney-whore everybody:

Not whorish enough? How about this: Thomas Kinkaid barely paints any of his own art. He, like Wyland (who actually can’t paint that well), employ other artists in a sort of assembly line production of the art, whereby different artists paint different parts. The overall pictures are designed by Kinkaid and Wyland, who then sign their names upon completion. I heard about this from two different fellow artists who had applied for jobs at the Wyland and Kinkaid production studios.

Not whorish enough? There is also something Kinkaid adds after his signature: John 3:16. He decided Christianity is a cash cow to exploit as well – Hey, why let the televangelists have all the fun money? But here’s where his whorism turns sinister:


At the bottom of every Kinkaid art print there is a printing (and embossing!) of the logo of World Vision International, a Christian missionary charity organization. If you do ANY sort of investigation into World Vision, you will realize they are nothing much more than a front for CIA covert operations. World Vision’s fingerprints were all over the Jonestown massacre. In 1980, the 2nd top official at World Vision was a Texas oilman and good friend of George H.W. Bush by the name of John Hinckley Sr..  If that name sounds familiar, it’s because John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan, with Bush being next in line for the presidency. This was the same Bush who had been appointed Director of the CIA in 1979, even though he claims he was never in it before. Extra coincidental bonus: Mark David Chapman, killer of John Lennon, also spent some time working for World Vision.

living tiki personal note: OK, it was only until after I downloaded World Vision’s logo that I noticed they have some eerie pulsating light program fixed to it. I may or may not change it, depending on how much that light creeps me out and makes me think they’re watching me. Well, watching me more.

.

.

Could these artists be pawns or players in the evil game of shaping our reality, which includes “detouring” our collective remembrance of Mu and Atlantis? I can’t be sure, but I did want to illustrate how the evil powers that be do not leave any stone unmolested. If they are influencing your mind through the music industry, you better believe they’ve slithered their way into controlling the art world as well. There is speculation that Andy Warhol was a mind-controlled slave programmed to destroy art with pop-art, and I would tend to agree.

When was the last time a painting spoke to your soul?

.

.

.

Since this post focused more on the “essence” of our past and how it’s been changed, I will get more into the concrete (or rather, stone) evidence of Mu’s existence in the next posting. However, there is one more way Land of the Lost relates to how the evil ones are engineering your view of women and the feminine:

Actress Anna Friel:


If you watch the 2009 movie, I’d say a good drinking game would be whenever a homosexual and/or anal reference came up. You’d be drunk 45 minutes into the film, but that would at least make the second 45 minutes go faster and funnier. Part of this gay programming was turning Anna Friel as Holly into a frumpy tomboy who was more of a “man” than any of the males, and who always looked bothered.

Since this was my first exposure to this British actress, I fell into Holy Wood’s gay trap and thought that this was Anna Friel:

That’s not Anna.

This is Anna:

This is the front of Anna (Please note 10,000 super cute freckles.)

And this is the back of Anna:

(Please note unbelievably sexy butt dimples.)

And a fine reflection of Mother Earth she is.

.

.

From the age of volcanoes…

the living tiki, Grok the caveman, and Mount Urizen wish you all a great new year!

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY!

  1. Had a bit of a bastard of a week – this article was like a wonderful rain shower in the midst of a hard, dry world – once again I thank you.

    I know not what to make of the sun & the moon – I’ve pondered this way & that & still have no idea – I enjoyed your thoughts & contemplations. This writing is a wonderful tool for detoxification.

    Would love to see some of your art work – if you ever have the inclination to post.

    I wrote a bit about Saule, the Baltic Sun Goddess in a previous time –
    http://toolonginthisplace.blogspot.com/2009/04/amberical-cord.html
    (in between third & fourth pic from top) – if you’re interested – you may be too busy with the ukulele – actually I hope you are 🙂

    Shine on & keeping making the music

    • Your energy is recycled and inspiring, thank you!

      Glad to know my words are refreshing, but can also be used as a toxic-thought cleanse for the brain. “For fast, effective relief, try the age of volcanoes.”

      I’ve had a bugger of a 2011 so far, so I haven’t checked out your Sun Goddess post yet, but I will when I get out one more post “shout” before I focus on other things (and other’s blog wisdom). Part of this will include focusing more on my art, so possibly expect some samples within the next month. New blog postings may be influenced by future ukulele’s effectiveness.

  2. Great post!
    Much to think about…
    I myself have been ever-so weirded out by the T.Kinkaid phenomenon
    as well as the ‘ocean painting boys’…
    something about art that is realistic and yet totally not that gives me the heeby-jeebies…
    I heard good ol’ Bill Gates was the last lucky chap to be able to buy one of T.K.’s originals as he only sells copies now…
    What a Living Legend he is : P
    Anyway, what a fun, entertaining, and thought provoking read…
    Keep it up!

    : )

    • Great comments! It made me wonder about those wealthy patrons of the arts, promoting art that actually suppresses awareness, creativity, and imagination. Art is all about mass production and consumption these days, just like any other artistic expression, and T-Kaid and the ocean boys are leading the pack.

      Good to know someone else isn’t hypnotized by their pretty pictures. Thanks!

  3. FYI, Christian Lassen is gay. He sleeps with both men and women. So unless you think being bisexual doesn’t make someone gay, then I can tell you, you are incorrect in your comment saying that he is not gay.

    • Hi Yuki

      I think you may have misunderstood the intent of my statement, “Christian Lassen…. who is so not gay.” I was attempting to be humorous by stating the opposite of what is obvious. I did the same thing with another post by saying, “Tom Cruise…. who is so not gay.” It’s my way of demonstrating to people that their perceptions of people/reality are being changed/influenced to think otherwise.

      When I was growing up, I was led to believe that the male movie action stars of my day (Arnold Schwartzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jesse Ventura, etc.) were “real men” because they were muscle-bound “tough guys”. But when you re-watch their films and look at what they do in their private lives, you will realize they are either gay or bi-sexual. So why then are they always promoted as “real men”? Because that is part of Hollywood’s agenda to redefine in the minds of young men today what they should look/act like to be a “real man,” and subsequently make them lean towards becoming gay themselves. And apparently it’s working because I’m certain there are men and women out there who wouldn’t think that Christian Lassen is gay just by looking at him.

      Believe it or not, since I know very little about Lassen, I was actually guessing he was gay based solely on that one photo. Thanks for the confirmation, and letting me know my brain is perceiving reality correctly.
