Why would they even ask her that question? It's not like her answer would legalize gay marriage anyway. I personally don't care if gay people marry. They can do anything a straight person can, so why all the hate?

Everyone who watches Miss USA is gay so obviously people watching it are gonna be outraged.

Wannabe celebrity judge Perez Hilton (Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr) asked it.

Non-news story #354,305 IMO.

+1 to her for sticking to her convictions, but how can she be surprised by this? It is a show based 100% on all things superficial, the outcome should come as a shock to nobody.

Now for Perez Hilton to keep going off on her, calling her a *****, stating on TV he should have called her the C word instead, he is a useless POS IMO, but nobody is criticizing him, society continues to be F-d up.

it bothers me because the show represents an image we project socially... and apparently it's not socially acceptable to have an opinion based on any values..

Utterly inflammatory and provocative question, and quite intentionally so.

My counter-question would be:

Had Miss California answered the question by saying "I believe that all the other states should follow Vermont's lead and I personally believe in same-sex marriage", would Mr. Lavendeira and company have made her a news crisis for her viscious political incorrectness?

BTW, the explanation of "how our government works" as described by "Perez Hilton" and parroted by other "spokespersons" over the last few days is, to put it bluntly, a dastardly lie.


Not to mention -- Miss USA is from HERE!!! She's a gorgeous Wilmington girl but all the news has done is talk about what a shame it is that all they are covering is faux-news (which they are all intentionally choosing to cover, after all, which makes their protestations seems rather disingenuous in my view...)

Careful, my friend. The thought police will put you on a list for voicing that idea.

total BS. the question is an opinion question and there really is no wrong answer... well, except when you have "Miss"ter Perez Hilton calling you all the names in the book because he doesn't like your answer. that whole situation is messed up.
