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!
