Miss California denounces gay marriage

On Sunday, April 19, the Miss USA pageant was held and of course, during the question and answer round, there was a question about gay marriage. Oh, and the judge delivering the question was none other than Perez Hilton. Talk about awkward. The question, which cited Vermont as the fourth state to recently legalize gay marriage and inquired if other states should follow suite, was asked to Miss California Carrie Prejean. Prejean replied (and I am paraphrasing) that her country and family doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage and she was raised to believe marriage is between a man and a woman, but you know, no offense. I mean really?

In a most interesting note, Prejean is from San Francisco, a.k.a. the gay capitol of the world. I hope she plays it safe and watches out for a stray stiletto to the face from a drag queen on the trip home. (I’m serious about those queens though – Stonewall, anyone?)

Also, why does saying the phrase “no offense” give someone free license to offend people? If you know it is going to be offensive, but you don’t want to offend anyone, then why are you saying it?

When she responds with that answer, the look on Perez Hilton’s face is priceless. I mean, really priceless. He also posted a video blog in response that makes a valid point: Prejean didn’t have to respond with her stance on gay marriage. She could have just said that the issue should be left up to the states.

Prejean did win first runner-up, but at least she wasn’t crowned Miss USA.

  1. I agree with Mark Andrews (above). You are an ass, and a good example of why a lot of people can’t stand the militant gay movement (I’m assuming you’re gay – if you’re not, you’re still an ass). In fact the militant gay movement has become something to be feared by average people because of their irrational hatred of anyone who expresses an opinion that differs with their own – and their inclination to act on that hatred as evidenced by this situation with Carrie Prejean
