I'm not a big fan of Perez Hilton, or anybody else that makes a living stalking other people and hoping their fame will rub off on you if you just talk about them long enough. He's the insecure, pimply-faced kid in high school that was too obnoxious and nerdy to hang out with the cool kids, but would do anything to elevate his status off the D-list.
However, sometimes it takes an obnoxious nerd to say what needs to be said. During the question and answer portion of the Miss USA pageant this week, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, in what can only be described as a game of karmic Russian Roulette, drew the loaded chamber. Her response to Hilton's question about whether same-sex marriage should be legal in all 50 states, was incoherent, rambling, misinformed and just plain wrong. She deserved to lose.
Offense taken, Miss California!
I don't know which USA she lives in, but in my country, we are not free to choose same-sex or opposite-sex marriage. That was the whole point of the question, you brainless twit!
We've become such a P.C. nation. We're supposed to be tolerant of other people's opinions and respectful of their "religious beliefs" even when those beliefs are extreme, hurtful and are used to justify bigotry and to restrict the rights of others.
Thank you, Perez, for driving home the point that we can be respectful of other people's "opinions", but bigotry should never be rewarded.
