The new Miss California and former Miss Teen USA Tami Farrell also shares her predecessor’s views that marriage is between a man and a woman, but according to The Advocate, she said, “I don’t think I have the right or anybody has the right to tell somebody who they can or can’t love.” Now that is a much better beauty queen response than Carrie Prejean’s.

  1. I find it ironic that you praise a women for taking a soft stance on something, and criticize a women for taking a strong stance.

    I think we are long past the era of women standing in the shadows, saying nothing to offend anyone or not standing up for their beliefs. Your comment at the end of this article enforces the stereotype that women are just supposed to be well-behaved.

    • Personally, I don’t care what these jiggle and giggle girls say or do. But if anyone takes a stance that negatively impacts the equal rights of friends and loved ones, sets herself up as a spokeswoman for a right wing religious group, and turns out to have a personal morality that allows for semi-nude photos and bitchy treatment of support staff, I look forward to knocking her image.

  2. I don’t think that is what Jamie is saying at all. i think Jamie was pointing out that Carrie Prejean while she had a strong stance it was a hateful, prejudicial, and unequal stance. Tami Farrel’s stance is a soft stance but that makes the hatefulness lest prevalent and that is why Jamie is endorsing this one more than Prejean’s. It is about the level of hate not the strength of the woman. And believe me I would love for a beauty queen to come out with a strong opinion, i would just like it to be one that supports same sex marriage

    • “And believe me I would love for a beauty queen to come out with a strong opinion, i would just like it to be one that supports same sex marriage”

      What I heard is “I only support strong-opinions from women when they agree with me.” That is called bias and I hope that you realize that Feminism is about woman’s rights, not about women with a specific political view.

      • Talk about twisting someone’s words. This statement says “I would just like” not “I only support.”

        Why perceive something that wasn’t said? As for your perception of feminism, it is all about rights AND specific political views.

  3. It’s not necessarily a ‘soft stance’ at all.
    Yes, she’s side stepping the gay marriage issue, but saying, “I don’t think anybody has the right to tell someone who they can or can’t love” is a pretty strong opinion.
    A lot of the crowd who Prejean appealed to damn well did think that they had the right to tell us who we couldn’t love.

  4. So it is a “better response” because it is what you feel is correct?

    That doesn’t make much sense. She was asked what HER opinion was, and she gave it. Perez Hilton certainly gave an opinion less than an hour later.

    Just because it’s not the same opinion as yours doesn’t mean it is completely invalid.

    As far as it being hateful, Miss Prejean never said she hated ANYONE. She has gay and lesbian friends, and she loves them, as she has said in interviews. She gave her opinion.

  5. Separate but equal. if thats not hate then I don’t know what hate is. I truly don’t know how any separate but equal belief could be considered a feminist belief.

  6. That is precisely the answer Perez Hilton wanted. But he (Hilton) was asking Prejean her views about marriage. He may not like her answer but he should at least respect it and not make it as a platform for his advocacy.
