Miss California’s Gay Marriage Controversy

The Culture Wars were alive and well at the Miss USA Pageant last evening.  In a Q&A segment, Ms. California Carrie Prejean randomly selected a question to be asked by a particular judge.  Here was the exchange:

Some think that Prejean lost her bid for the crown because of her answer to this question — she was first runner-up by the end of the evening.  I have no idea, nor any opinion on that point because I tend to think they’re all poised and beautiful and can wear whatever crown or sash they want to wear!  Some in the audience applauded her; Perez Hilton, the judge, was not impressed by her answer. 

I’d hate to think that Prejean’s opinion would have pressured the judges to dock her points merely on the basis of NBC-style political correctness.  But, she stands by her remarks and I applaud her for that. 

However, the Culture Wars go in both directions — I’d also hate to think her answer is being turned into an issue simply because she was runner-up either.  Carrie Prejean’s point of view is one shared consistently by a majority of voters — since when is majority opinion “controversial?”  Yet we all know, our politically correct culture unfairly imposes guilt on people who don’t deserve it, especially if one’s opinion is not shared by our perceived cultural elite.

I dunno. I appreciate her honesty and integrity, but she’s clearly got fake boobs, and that tends to gross me out. Maybe it’s just me, but that seems as tacky as a tramp stamp.

The bigger issue here is how did Perez Hilton become any type of celebrity whatsoever. Perez Hilton is the biggest argument for gay bashing I’ve ever seen. Just looking at it makes me want to slap the face right off of its head. (By it I am referring to Perez Hilton I refuse to call it a him or a her as calling it either one of those would offend real males and females.)
