Miss USA Controversy

In the Miss USA pageant, Miss California, Carrie Prejean struck up quite the controversy with her answer to judge Perez Hilton’s question on legalizing gay marriage.  Prejean replied to his question by saying,

“We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite.  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.”

Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, was less than impressed with her reply.  He even released a video with his thoughts on her response, calling her a “dumb b*tch.” 

Miss California obviously caused an uproar between herself and Perez Hilton.  I believe that it goes to show people how very important it is to keep in mind the way you phrase things when speaking in public.  Though it is her right to have her own opinion, she possibly should have gone about her response in a more  “politically correct” way.
