It even changes our perceptions of what is sexy and what is not. Us Magazine, which targets teenagers, called Gaga's faux come-on to Spears "sexy." But there is nothing sexy about Gaga's version of gender bending. In her androgynous style, she actually undercuts that which makes relations between the sexes interesting -- sexual dimorphism. Despite what more militant gay and lesbian advocates desperately wish, women and men have natural and inherent differences ranging from brain structure to body type. Destroy or obscure those differences, idealizing them as beautiful cookie cutter models of hermaphroditic coldness, and choice of partners becomes rather dull.
In the end, Lady Gaga's "groundbreaking" attempts to crossbreed femininity and masculinity create a very boring hybrid. She isn't Marilyn Monroe or even Madonna. She's turning into a mannequin with removable body parts. The more she changes society in her own likeness -- and there are certainly many "little monsters" who will imitate her -- the less interesting and diverse we become as a society.
