I’m going out on a big limb with this one but it’s got nothing to do with my personal view on anything. It’s just something that has me wondering WHAT THE HECK?
I don’t normally write stuff like this but this leaves me with a lot of questions and a feeling of yuck in my mouth. It’s also got NOTHING to do with what or how I feel about the issue of gay marriage.
This is what was asked of her and how she responded.
When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.” Here’s the link to Foxnews if your interested.
Okay now first of all, Perez Hilton?? You have got to be kidding me. A man who at times dyes his hair pink, yellow, lavender and lime green?? This guy is just a nut. No other words come to me other than nut. He makes his living by blogging about gossip and innuendo’s. He makes fun of people and belittles everyone. I’m not sure I could look him in the eye and even take him seriously. Gay or not gay. Straight or not straight. He’s a gossip columnist and a nasty one to boot. And he’s a “judge” in the Miss USA pageant?? WHY????
I didn’t see this program. I don’t care for them in general and haven’t watched a “pageant” program in years. But some are saying the answer she gave cost her the win and title. Others are saying she had it in the bag and should have won. Others are saying she should lose the first runner up spot. I can only go by what I’ve read and what I’ve watched.
My problem with this whole thing not counting Perez Hiltons involvement is why was a question like this asked? This is an air headed competition in my opinion and I don’t feel a debated question like this should be asked. Why not “would you have an abortion” or “should priests be allowed to get married?” It’s an opinion question and how we feel and how we answer should be accepted. If you ask someone a question you should be prepared to hear what they have to say. Should she have lied? Lying would be okay and she may have won that way? Isn’t lying = to cheating? I feel the way this kid is being treated for being honest is appalling. Whether we agree with her or not, this is HER opinion and it was asked to her by a NUT and now the media is shredding her??? I feel this is just plain wrong. My son Toby heard him call her a dumb bitch today on the radio. Well then why did he ask her such a volatile question??
We don’t all have the same opinions obviously so my thought is, as someone I know used to say, “if you don’t want to know the answer, don’t ask the question.” What do you think? This to me isn’t about gay marriage it’s about your own freedom to feel and think what you want without being punished for it. “Especially” when you’re asked. She didn’t volunteer this, she was asked this by Hilton and he just didn’t like her answer and that’s what I find wrong.
