Miss California Prefers “Opposite Marriage”
In what is quickly becoming the YouTube moment of last night’s Miss USA Pageant, Miss California answered a question from guest judge Perez Hilton about the legalization of same sex marriage. Asked whether every state should follow suit since Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage earlier this month, Miss California replied that she thinks it’s “great” that Americans can choose between same sex marriage or “opposite marriage,” but that in her country, she believes marriage should be between a man and woman. Isn’t California still part of America? On his blog, Perez called Miss California’s response the “worst answer in pageant history.” While I agree it was pretty bad, who can forget Miss South Carolina’s disastrous answer in the Miss Teen USA Pageant a couple years ago? Relive that moment, after the jump.
