Perez Hilton, Miss USA California, Gay Marriage, Enough!

 

So apparently during the Miss USA Pageant this past weekend, Perez Hilton was one of the judges and his question to Miss California was about gay marriage. Miss California, looking as flustered as any of the pageant girls look when they get a difficult question, did her best to sound somewhat intelligent before saying that “in her country, in her family,” she believed marriage was between a man and a woman. As the audience supposedly booed her (when you watch it on YouTube it sounds like a mix of clapping and booing) apparently Perez said, “Bitch” under his breath which was carried to the airwaves because his mic was still on. Perez Hilton, Miss USA California, Gay Marriage, Enough! – Don’t Get Me Started!

Okay let me begin by saying that I’m a snob when it comes to pageants. I’m a Miss America kind of gay where there’s some talent involved and some platforms (not just the heels here but you know stuff like working with underprivileged kids, AIDs, etc.). Miss USA is a pageant bought by Donald Trump that back in the day was the pageant for the girls who would take a roll in the hay with the judges not be the role models that Miss Americas are supposed to be. In fact it was the pageant you participated in if you weren’t good enough to be in Miss America. So I wasn’t watching the bikini fest that is Miss USA this past weekend. I didn’t see it in live time but I watched it on YouTube and here’s the deal. I don’t see anything wrong with Miss California’s answer. (As if I don’t worry enough about my gay card be revoked, right?!? The gay mafia will definitely be coming after me on this one.)

But you see, the reason I don’t see anything wrong with Miss California’s opinion is that was exactly what it was, one woman’s opinion and the last time I checked, in America, you’re allowed to say whatever you want. Is it going to change my life that Miss California USA is against same sex couples being allowed to marry? No. Is it better for her to say how she really feels or better for her to lie? (Like the Mormons who still haven’t admitted just how much of their congregants’ tithed money went to pass Proposition 8 in California) I’d prefer the truth and that’s what she gave us.

Meanwhile, Perez Hilton who came to fame by outing celebrities and then drawing cum shots on the faces of celebrities on his website is losing weight, giving up the freakish dyed hair in order to try and restart his original goal which was to be an actor. Well, good luck Mr. Perez, even if you lost a lot more weight the only thing I see you being cast as is an extra in a Flintstones movie with those Neanderthal features of yours. That said, a lot of people love him and good for him that he’s managed to become so mainstream.

Here’s the deal, I don’t want to leave my rights to Miss California USA or Perez Hilton if you don’t mind. As I’ve stated before, we need to get behind the idea that “marriage” is religious and in order to have the benefits under the laws of the United States (where all men are supposed to be created equal and there’s supposed to be a separation of church and state) a union between two consenting adults should be a “civil marriage” or be a “civil union” for both hetero and homosexual couples. What a lot of people don’t realize is that there are also millions of senior citizens (gay and straight) cohabitating who don’t want to give up their social security benefits but would like a tax break so they could use the whole civil marriage thing too as long as it comes with all the legal benefits. My brother says we need to get rid of the word “marriage” and let that word only be used in the context of religious ceremonies, I don’t disagree but what I do disagree with is everyone getting their bikini bottoms up their bum because some Miss USA contestant said what she believes. For too long we’ve all be so “sensitive” that we’ve forgotten that a good debate is one of the luxuries our country affords us.

All ready there are people saying that Hilton had no right to ask the question and others are saying that Miss California will certainly get her place in heaven next to Sarah Palin for her answer. I don’t know about you but I was taught that actions speak louder than words, when all of the media outlets that are vilifying the poor pageant contestant start putting their billions of dollars towards equal rights then they can say whatever the hell they want. In the meantime, give the pageant girl a break, remember we live in America and if you’re anything like me, you’re still saying, Perez Hilton, Miss USA California, Gay Marriage, Enough! – Don’t Get Me Started!

While I don't usually agree with you, in this case you have some valid points.

Marriage should be a religious ceremony and the government should not be involved in it at all. There should be no need to give a religious ceremony validation by the government. Marriage, should not be a class or category for the IRS or any other government function.

A non religious union, is a contractual relationship and it has all of the protections that are now found in marriage.

I don't however believe that Gays have any rights and certainly not in a religious ceremony of marriage. Gays that try to use marriage as a validation of their orientation need to get over claiming that it is a right. We don't allow the Mormons to have their right involving multiple wives. We don't allow incest marriages. Quite  frankly, the incest marriage would have more rights than a gay one.

Smokers also claimed that they have rights, even though their self proclaimed rights were at the expense of the person next to them.

Maybe you are also for lowering the age for marriage, so that Pedophile can legalize their life choices.

You cannot literally translate the 14th Amendment to validate sexual orientation. It was to end discrimination against the slaves after the Civil War. Inter-racial marriages that were once banned, were rightfully changed using the 14th Amendment. The ban was based on race and not sexual orientation. Race is hard to hide and easy to discriminate against. Sexual orientation is a choice and it is only discriminated when it becomes militant.

The law purports to protect the obese and the old against discrimination but we all know that the law is impotent in doing so. Gender and sexual orientation have the protection that neither of the former rights have.

Just claiming a right is not going to make it a right.

Civil Unions and contractual agreements can provide every thing that is found in a heterosexual marriage. The only possible reason for a homosexuals to be "married" is to validate a deviant lifestyle and not as a Constitutional Right. Again, I think that only religion should be involved in a marriage and all other civil unions are provided by the government.

Well put, Scott. This is America, and she has every right to believe what she wants and to state her beliefs publicly if she wishes. Of course, this being America, I also have the right to laugh at her for being a moron when she does so as erroneously (Americans have a choice between same and opposite sex marriage? really?) and inarticulately as she did. :D

It's especially hilarious because she used the "that's how I was raised" excuse and now she's saying her sister is a gay marriage advocate. Were they raised in different households?

Kerry, I would laugh at you, but I don't want to wait in line.

I completely agree with you, Scott! She gave her opinion. Big deal!!! Perez Hilton made a huge issue out of it, and basically, threw a hissy fit! I can't think of a better way to put it. He is drawing more attention to it with his talk show visits and name-calling. I am already sick of hearing about it. The poor girl lost because she had an opinion that differed from Perez Hilton. At least she was honest.

I'm laughing at myself and you. First me. (as my kids say...Mama is always first) You know the mother thing? You have one. Anyway, not being totally connected, I saw... Perez read Perez... but my mind was seeing Paris..... Soooo as I read on I had a vision of Paris Hilton judging... Then it clicked and I knew it was Perez.... OH that guy. I was asked once, by a friend. YOU do know he is gay? Really ... I didn't give it a second thought.. because I don't go there when I see a person. I just think...person, what they say.. act.. treat others. But since I am new at this and haven't read all of your Hubs... Do you think you could write something about that question I was asked? YOU do know he is Gay!? You not only make for a good read... you make for a good laugh.. but always leaving the reader thinking.

Scoot over, Scott, and make room for me on your bandwagon. Again.

I just saw this sound bite this morning, and I thought the same thing that you did: he asked her for her opinion, and that was what he got.  I don't necessarily agree with what she said, but that's what makes it MY opinion.

Another well written hub from my favorite fellow Hubber! Keep on Hubbin'!

Perez threw a "hissy fit" because, as a flagrant, in-your-face homosexual he is the perfect representation of all that it encapsulates: INTOLERANT and ADAMANTLY OPPOSED to anyone who does not share their "vision." Unfortunately, our country has caved to the demands of these misguided people and now virtually indoctrinates our children from babies on up, with "Two Mommies" books and "Days of Silence" telling our kids that being a homosexual is a "lifestyle choice" instead of a SIN. It's painfully obvious that poor Perez had some serious lack of a male figure in his life, and no one would call him any less for that (after all, that's not his fault). BUT, to take any of my own weaknesses or proclivities toward things that God calls evil and try to call it good . . um, well, that works for awhile here on earth, but Perez & Friends, it won't work when you stand before a holy God. Squawk and flap your lips all you want, but someday you WILL answer and be judged according to the Word of God, and trust me, he is VERY "homophobic." I really do hope you change, as acceptance of this sinful lifestyle is a tragic commentary on our society. How sad.

PullinNoPunches, I think you're punch drunk. I love how you claim that God is so homophobic. How do you know this? Have you talked to him lately? Because I went to brunch with God last weekend and as we sipped mimosas he told me how thankful he was for homosexuals. How we laughed about you and all your hater friends and funny, we said the same thing that you said about gays about you "squawking" and "flapping your lips." Best of luck in your ignorance!
