The now infamous Miss California, Carrie Prejean, is still on the defensive after last weekend’s Miss USA pageant, in which she said marriage should be between a man and a woman and not the gays. This weekend she sat down with a gay blogger (not Perez Hilton!) to discuss her feelings on the subject in more depth. Rex Wockner got to the heart of the matter pretty quick.
Rex: I understand that you were raised to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I understand that you grew up knowing that you were always going to marry a guy, but you’re heterosexual. Um, some people are born gay, maybe, you think?
Carrie: No, I don’t think so … I think it’s a behavior that develops over time.
Rex: Why would someone choose it, given that if you choose that, you get discriminated against?
Carrie: I’m not sure what the motivation would be.
