This is Miss California's response to Perez Hilton's question during the Miss America Pageant:
For some reason, everyone is freaking out about her answer. I was listening to the radio today and the newscaster called her remark "anti-gay."
Yes, one day I would love to say that I have all the rights as all other Americans, and sometimes I get enraged when people stand in the way of that happening.
But seriously, I think people are taking Miss California's answer way too far. I certainly don't agree with her, and I'm not saying she should have won the crown, but she's completely entitled to her own opinion. Her stance on gay marriage doesn't she's "anti-gay."
I actually think she's pretty awesome for being true to her beliefs, especially when she knew it would cost her the title of Miss America. That takes huge balls.
So here's to you, Miss California. We disagree, but that's okay. And screw you, Perez Hilton and everyone else, for being complete asses about her being herself.
