Steve Job’s and Apple’s new social network for music, Ping, has one major flaw it seems. IT’S HOMOPHOBIC.
Outspoken singer and gay rights activist Lady Gaga has a promo page on PING and Apple and PING has taken it on themselves to leave out some interesting pro gay right Tweets from the Gaga. especially Tweets about anti-gay marriage Proposition 8. Gaga has been lending her full support to gay rights and gay marriage even going as far to try to become an ordained minister so she can perform gay marriages when they become legal in California. However her Ping page mysteriously does not list any of her pro-gay right posts.
One of the omitted Tweets says “Full equality, this is just the beginning”- a thought naturally repellent to the Apple who seems to think All Nerds Are Equal Except Gay Nerds.
Apple is becoming famous for the censoring of and rejecting of gay material.to the extent of refushing post gay apps as innocent as “Gay New York: 101 Can’t-Miss Places” and the forcing creators of gay content to censor their comics for Apple apps.
Perhaps evangelical Steve Jobs and his evangelical minions are trying to tell us something.
Like maybe Apple is rotten to the core/

What you’re looking at is a before and after of Tom Bouden’s modern, ultra-gay take on Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest after Apple censored it like crazy for iPad. But Apple didn’t bother censoring the comic for Kick Ass which features a straight guy’s butt, a glimpse of his nuts, and his lover’s exposed tit (Below)
It seems that Apple, and Steve jobs thinks it can and should write the moral code for the tens of millions of global iPhone and iPad customers,shackling them to a sadly homogenized digital marketplace built around Jobs’ personal tastes — grossly violent movies are OK, line-drawings of breasts in the 17-years-and-older section are verboten — seems to fly in the face of the CEO’s professional responsibilities. Both commercial and, yes, moral.
