We Should Be Proud of Miss California, and Perez Hilton Should Be Ashamed

gallery_photo1239121941swim_californiaAlright, I’m sure many of you have heard the recent controversies surrounding the recent Miss USA pageant and Miss California’s (Carrie Prejean) answer to a question on gay marriage.  Here’s a video of that question, asked by judge Perez Hilton (video courtesy of NBC):

Alright, now, that answer was criticized by many, including Perez Hilton.  Here’s the video that he posted later that night:

I have a few problems with Perez Hilton (other than the fact that he’s obnoxious and I can’t stand him):

  1. He complains that she wasn’t politically correct, and that Miss USA needs to be politically correct.  Well, I’m glad that Perez Hilton believes in being politically correct.  That must be why he called her “a dumb bitch,” and that must be why he went on MSNBC and say that he “was thinking the ‘c’-word, and I didn’t say it.”  Well, Perez, we’re glad that you’re defending political correctness, except when it comes to women.  Had she have called you a “fag,” you’d have been up in arms (and rightfully so).  Show her some respect even if you disagree with her.
  2. He said that she should have said, “I think that that is a question that each state should decide for themselves, because that’s how our forefathers designed our government.”  Well, that would’ve been a nice politically correct answer, but Perez’s question was, “Vermont recently became the 4th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit.  Why or why not?”  Saying that it should be up to the states to decide would not have been answering the question.

Perez has since come out and apologized, and then on MSNBC, he took back his apology (and indirectly called her “the ‘c’-word”).

Personally, I agree with Carrie Prejean.  I am glad that states have the right to decide; however, I personally think that marriage should be between a man and a woman.  She didn’t answer the question poorly, she just answered it honestly.  She said that she was glad that Americans have the option to choose, but when she goes to the voting booth, she’ll chose to not allow it.

Perez Hilton shouldn’t have even been a judge in my opinion.  His video saying that if she’d have won, he’d have run on stage and snatched the crown from her shows me that he shouldn’t be judging the contest.  If he can’t live with the result of the contest if it doesn’t go how he wants, he should not be a judge.

I’ll conclude this by saying that I think this may have cost Prejean the crown (Perez Hilton himself told ABC, “She lost it because of that question.  She was definitely the front-runner before that.”); however, she may have ended as runner up anyway, so congratulations to Miss North Carolina, Kristen Dalton.

Carrie, you’re a true American hero.  Thank you for standing up for what you believe in.  You’re an amazing icon to young women all over the country, and I respect you.  God bless you, and I wish you the best of luck in life.

    I’m a straight democrat and this Perez Hilton guy has always pissed me off with his trying to out gay celebrities. This freak chose the perfect name cause he’s basically a fat ugly male Paris Hilton that would do ANYTHING for attention. He’s a disgrace to the internet media, which is truly saying something!

    And now he goes after this poor girl who actually gave an honest answer and not a memorized bullshit answer like everyone else.

    (I myself think gay marriage should be legal but that’s totally my opinion)

    QUEER REVOLUTION – a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something : a change of paradigm.

    Now that two 11-year-old boys have committed suicide this past week, I am EVEN MORE driven to do “radical” actions in an effort to bring attention to our cause. For the record, if you think that DEMANDING WITHOUT APOLOGY what is ALREADY DUE TO ME is “radical”, well then – that is YOUR problem.

    So I’m afraid that violence against an institution’s property MAY need to be the next step. I don’t know. Something needs to change NOW.

    We are harmed by legal inequity.
    YOU are not.
    That may need to change as people like YOU try to insert your “religion” into CIVIL LAW.

    Wait. Why is she an American hero again?

  4. She's right, he's a temperamental joke. Says:

    Carrie Prejean is RIGHT!
    Perez Hilton is A JOKE!

    #1 – Carrie is FULLY allowed by law to have personal views and she did NOT force her views on anyone or say anything derogatory about gays or gay marriage, she just said it’s not the way she sees marriage and thats 100% FINE.

    #2 – Perez Hilton on the other hand DESCRIMINATED againt Carrie because he didn’t like her beliefs. He FORCED his beliefs on her, and now everyone else via his tirades, and that is NOT acceptable regardless of what the beliefs are.

    #3 – Perez Hilton HAS BROKEN THE LAW by admittedly discriminating against Carrie and denying her the crown because he’s gay and she didn’t say what he wanted her to in support of that.

    #4 – Why on EARTH would the pageant have had Perez Hilton, a man INCAPABLE of NOT causing BS, be a host in the first place?? He makes a living by talking trash and making fun of people!!

    Perez not only broke the law, he’s turned the pageant into a farce at the same time.

    Regarding your comments about political correctness: Perez Hilton was not vying for Miss America. Like him or not, he does not need to be politically correct in his answers about anything. As a matter of fact, he has pretty much built an empire on NOT being politically correct.

    Also, part of being a great Miss America is thinking on your toes and being able to answer a question without actually answering it. Think about it: Have any of your political candidates ever answered without answering? Yet people will still support them for at least giving the perception of communicating with the people.

    I don’t support gay marriage but I do expect for someone vying for a position in the public eye to be able to think on their toes and draw all people together instead of apart.

    Asking a question about same sex marriage at a Miss America pageant is out of place and bad form, just like Perez Hilton

  7. inkslwc Says:

    Sean, shouldn’t a judge of a Miss America pageant be politically correct? And even if he doesn’t have to be politically correct, his statement that he’d grab the crown off of her head if she had won shows that he wasn’t mature enough to be a judge.

    Actually, being part of Miss America is thinking on your toes and actually answering the question, not avoiding the answer.

    She clearly stated that she’s happy that American voters have the right to chose.

    I wish the media and some Christians would stop assisting Miss California, Carrie Prejean in promoting herself as a representative of morality and Christianity. The fact that she strips down and prances around in a little bikini for all to judge how “hot” her body looks shows she is not a good Christian role model. I write for holiness.com and advise people around the globe on biblical Christian living. I do believe that marriage is between a man and a woman based on scripture. http://www.holiness.com/ChristiansInPorn.htm
