We didn’t tune in to last night’s Miss USA pageant, as those things are normally boring and the best parts – the falls and vapidity – always make it onto YouTube. Last night’s show was no different, and today we were thrilled to enjoy this clip of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, stumbling her way through an inarticulate response to judge Perez Hilton‘s question about legalizing gay marriage.
We’ll leave her personal beliefs alone (even though, ya know, we disagree) but just watching her call heterosexual marriage “opposite marriage” makes the clip worth watching over and over again. Here’s a transcript of her answer:
“Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you very much.”
