Britney Spears` pop video `Oops! ... I Did It Again` (2000) borrows its subject material from science fiction Grand Master Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), Podkayne Of Mars (1963), a story about a young woman written as a juvenile entertainment for girls featuring the character Poddy, who was herself based on Puddin`, a teenager created by Robert Heinlein for the story `Poor Daddy` in the magazine, Calling All Girls (1949), where she explains that it doesn`t suit Puddin` that her mother `ice-skates` with other men and so her daddy had faked a `fishing trip` to learn how. In `Oops! ... I Did It Again` a spaceman arrives, `Mars Lander`, in a spacesuit typical of those worn by the Apollo astronauts of the NASA space program and almost identical to that used by Neil Armstrong on July 20 1969 (UTC) as `the first man on the moon`. He looks incongruous beside her as she dances unfettered by a suit but the representative Apollo astronaut is there as a reminder: `To what extent civilization is retarded by the laughing jack-asses, the empty-headed belittlers.`1
Have Space Suit - Will Travel (1958) was a juvenile entertainment written primarily for boys, and features a protagonist, Kip, who refurbishes an old spacesuit he calls `Oscar` before an encounter with a spaceship containing Peewee, a girl, and the `Mother Thing`, an alien. The spacesuit comes in handy as Kip appears before a cosmic jury defending the Earth: `The Mother Thing and a representative of another race argue that the short-lived species are essentially children who should be granted more time to learn and grow.`2
In `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, the `Oscar` has come looking for Britney Spears, as they say in Hollywood. She descends to her stage set inside a giantess` for `Spears` ring, because its first `Grand Master`, Robert A. Heinlein, was the `giant` of science fiction, and so his `SF` ring is for Britney`s `Poddy`. The `fishing trip` of the father of Poddy`s earlier avatar, Puddin`, is important, because Heinlein is Britney`s `fisher king`. In the legends of the Grail, that is, the bowl used by Jesus at the `Last Supper` before his death, Anfortas, whose Grail kingdom is sterile and infertile, because of a mysterious wound at his groin, patiently fishes while waiting for his lands to be restored. Used by T. S. Eliot in `The Wasteland` (1920) poem, `... fishing in the dull canal,` (l. 189) to highlight the need for spiritual renewal and growth after WWI (1914-18) , Britney Spears uses the canals of Mars in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` as the setting for her giantess` explanation as to why the human race is under judgement.
Puddin`s father, who didn`t want other men to be with his wife, is Robert A. Heinlein, who wrote of a `continua car` in The Number Of The Beast (1980) called `Gay Deciever` in which two pairs of couples, Zeb and Deety and Jake and Hilda, are pursued through all possible worlds, fictional or real, by the `black beast`, who are the men who want to `ice-skate` with Robert A. Heinlein`s wife. Because `gay` is a euphemism for homosexuality, Robert A. Heinlein`s perspective is coloured by socio-history. Western society is based on the model of ancient Greece where women`s host wombs were enslaved for pederasty and war, while Revelation descries `a woman` in the East: `Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.` (Rev: 17. 5)
In T. S. Eliot`s `The Wasteland`, the `fisher king` is the man who waits to receive an explanation as to why his lands are sterile and barren, and the `blood plague` of Revelation, that is, the homosexually transmitted `killer disease` of the late 20th century, HIV/AIDS, is another explanation. Keeping women`s host wombs in fearful faithfulness to the enslavement and devourment of men`s pederasty and war is the reason for the sterility and death in the lands of the fisher king: `Men cursed the God of heaven for their pains and their sores but refused to repent of what they had done.` (Rev: 16. 11)
Producing HIV/AIDS in mixing blood, shit and semen in the sterility of anal sex together is punished by God with perdition, that is, eternal unendurable pain, because it`s an aspect of the `red dragon` of Revelation which waits in vain to devour the `New Redeemer`, that is, Jesus Christ, in his `Second Coming`, but is the enslaver of Eve`s human species since God warned her in Eden of the serpent and the `serpent`s seed` that would have `perpetual enmity` for her `seed` before she`ll `crush the head of the serpent with her heel as she leaves` (Gen: 3. 15) for the `new heaven and Earth` promised by God to `woman`s seed`.
Born uncontaminated by male semen, Jesus` crucifixion, death, Resurrection and Ascension to heaven as `the first of woman`s seed` is because his mother was the Virgin Mary, and women who are `futanarian` have their own penis` `seed` and can reproduce with each other, so that women`s species` brain can develop exclusively of her parasite. From the perspective of Robert A. Heinlein`s cosmic court, determining whether or not the human race will be allowed to continue in Have Space Suit - Will Travel, woman can win the footrace as a single biune `futanarian` species, but men must pray for Redemption because of their treacherousness.
At the `Last Supper`, where Jesus was the host offering `bread and wine` to the disciples as tokens of his `body and blood`, he was remonstrating with Judas Iscariot`s lack of respect for the host and betraying `woman`s seed` to her devourers because `futanarian` woman is God`s future `angelic host`: `At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.` (Matt: 22. 30)
In `Oops! ... I Did It Again` there`re three central characters, the spaceman, that is, `Mars Lander`, and Britney Spears in her red pilot`s suit, because `Poddy` in the girls` juvenile novel, Podkayne Of Mars, which is also set on the `red planet`, wanted to fly spacecraft. Britney Spears in a white bikini dress, who the camera of `Mission Control, attached to the spacehelmet of the astronaut, is able to film, is `the Poddy beautiful`, which is how Podkayne is described in Heinlein`s novel, and she places the hook of her `fisher king` in the spaceman`s backpack to hoist him up where he can see the `Mother Thing` who sings about her `baby`, the Earth: `Oops! ... I did it again! I played with your heart, got lost in the game. Oh baby, baby. Oops! You think I'm in love. That I'm sent from above. I'm not that innocent.`
The `Mother Thing` won`t allow anything to cloud her judgement. At one point in the video we hear, `All aboard!` The ship motif is explained when Britney Spears` spaceman gives her a gift, `But I thought the old lady dropped it into the ocean in the end?` He replies, `Well baby I went down and got it for you.` There doesn`t seem to be a catch on the small black box, so Britney Spears` hook in her spaceman`s back to support his suit must be a clasp for the necklace belonging to the `heart of the ocean`, from the movie, Titanic (1997), that is, a blue diamond pendant in the shape of a heart dropped into the sea by surviving passenger, Rose, at the place where the Titanic ship sank in 1911 after it hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Liverpool, England, to New York, USA, in remembrance.
In symbolic terms, the spaceman of Britney Spears` `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is suing the `Mother Thing` for mercy. In the Hollywood movie, Titanic, Rose is betrayed by a suitor who frames a new boyfriend for theft by placing the `heart of the ocean` in his pocket. It`s still there when the ship sinks and the men are depicted throwing the women from the lifeboats so they can survive. Rose has played the `game`, like Britney Spears` `Mother Thing` in `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, and she`s been betrayed, but woman with her own `futanarian` penis `seed` hasn`t been tried and proven, so the human race is reprieved, which is what the Bible foretells:
`Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down - that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the Earth, and his angels with him.`
Woman`s seed is Satan to those who don`t believe in God, and so God is called Satan by the evil. The war is over the enslaving of the human species of `futanarian` woman with her own penis` seed by a parasite masquerading as men who believe in Jesus Christ, and so Britney`s opening lyric is taunting of men who wear suits in the name of Jesus, that is, Jesuits: `Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah [suit appears] I think I did it again. I made you believe. We're more than just friends.`
The spaceman in the spacesuit is `Yeah, suit.` As Jesuit he appears to make her believe in human love, and she can, `Oops! I did it again to your heart.` But the scene of Britney Spears, in her red pilot`s suit as `the Poddy beautiful` of Heinlein`s Mars` `future history` alongside herself in a white bikini dress that might conceal her `futanarian` penis `seed`, is more believable to the `mother things` of the human species too: `... people who will not take the trouble to raise children should not have them.`3
In the novel Podkayne Of Mars `Poddy` and her brother, Clarke, are kidnapped, because Tom, their uncle, is a politico. Poddy is killed at the end by Clarke`s detonation of an atomic bomb to foil the criminals. As an avatar of Puddin`, `Poddy` is also Maureen from Robert A. Heinlein`s final novel, To Sail Beyond The Sunset, because Puddin` was Maureen Wilson. She appears on the cover of the book as a new Venus upon her half shell, because woman with a penis` `seed` of her own is the new pearl of the species` future as Robert A. Heinlein again attempts to speak of many sexual matters frowned upon by the chauvinistic male genre of science fiction:
`The adventures of Maureen are a series of sexual ones, starting with Heinlein describing her as a young girl who, having just had her first sexual intercourse, is examined by her father, a doctor, and finds herself desiring him sexually. Her sexual life story then continues featuring various boys, her husband, ministers, other women's husbands, boyfriends, swinging sessions, and [...] she continues a lifelong pursuit of her father sexually, encourages her husband to have sexual intercourse with their daughters, and accompanies him when he does; but forbids a son and daughter of hers from continuing an incestuous relationship, primarily for the sister's reluctance to share the brother with other women.`4
As is usually the case in works by Robert A. Heinlein most synopses and literary criticism are directed at his liberal treatment of incest, rather than conducting a critique of the theme, which recurs throughout his later works. Especially those featuring the `continua car`, Gay Deciever, which curiosity of spelling probably means `I who am ever deceptive`, and those which include Heinlein`s longest lived and reputedly wisest character, the albeit immortal, Lazarus Long. Amongst those novels are Time Enough For Love (1973), and The Number Of The Beast (1980) in which Jake tells his daughter Deety, `get... the best possible training in self-defense,`5 and commits incest with her. The incest taboo is given short shrift because, although it isn`t explicitly stated within the texts, due to traditionalist genre restrictions with regard to male-female relations, women are a single `biune` species and the taboo against both the penis` visibility within society and the incest taboo are against mother and daughter becoming aware of their own species` penis` `seed`: `Right and wrong [are] the correct words, used exactly as they would be used in any other human relation.`6
Asked in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` by `Mission Control` about the atmosphere, `Mars Lander`, that is, Britney Spears` spaceman, replies `98% oxygen`, which means there`s enough air to breathe on the red planet of Mars, and Britney Spears, in her red pilot`s suit, together with the `Mother Thing`, as herself in the white bikini dress, who represents the host female womb and what it contains of civilization, culture and art, that is, `the catch` in fishing terms, have enough space to breed the species` brainpower, which she`ll need if she`s to obviate the incest taboo and build starships to escape from the wasteland of men`s enslaving and devouring `red dragon` of pederasty and its gods: wars.
