I am just calling it like I see it. Sarah Palin who was a former contest for Miss Alaska back in the day, would never would have had a chance with Perez Hilton as a judge.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is calling it the YouTube moment of last night’s Miss USA pageant.
During the final round, Hilton, one of the night’s judges, was chosen to present Miss California, Carrie Prejean, with her final question.
” Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit? Why or why not?” he asked.
Hilton was clearly unhappy with her answer, and he let the world know about it on his Web site.
In a video blog that he posted just moments after the pageant ended, Hilton says that Prejean gave the worst answer in pageant history, that she was actually booed. He then goes on to say, “She lost, not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage. Miss California lost because she’s a dumb –, OK?”
He said that Prejean could have answered that question in a more neutral way by perhaps acknowledging that same-sex marriage is a hot topic in this country and that each state should decide for itself how that issue should be handled.
Prejean, 21, of San Diego, answered that she thought it was great that she lived in a country where a person can choose one or the other, but that in her family, she was raised to believe marriage was between a man and a woman.
What follows is quite ironic as Perez creates a video blog calling Prejan derogatory names when he was a judge at A MISS AMERICA CONTEST. He attempted to defend himself on MSNBC (the perfect place for a misogynistic liberal to go):
So now not only can women not speak their minds on political campaigns, they can’t speak their minds during a contest that supposedly promotes women’s leadership. Sure Miss USA, parade around in your bikini, show them that you can play the harpsichord with your toes, but when it comes to what you really think….SHUT UP YOUR F@#% ING C@%t.
Afrocity’s question is….
WHERE ARE THE FEMINISTS???
Where is the outrage? Oh stupid me. Prejan’s answer was a little bit too conservative for the women at NOW.
Women we really have got to stop it with the double standards. How would you feel if the following questions were asked of you:
If you were ever raped would you have an abortion?
How do you feel about gun laws?
Would you marry a person of another race?
Do you believe in war?
Do you support Israel or Palestine’s position?
How would you feel if your answers to those questions were used to judge your ability to hold a job? Buy a home? Win a Miss USA pageant? Wake up!!!
Our freedoms are being jeopardized.
Feminists where are you? In response to all of this Miss California Carrie Prejean said that “she prays for Miss USA judge blogger Perez Hilton”.
Meanwhile, I pray for the feminist movement”
