So Miss California Carrie Prejean hates gay marriage. That’s fine, people are allowed opinions. But this?
Oh Carrie Prejean, how could you? You’ve… you’ve… taken most of your clothes off. In the past. We’re offended. Harbouring old-fashioned and illogical attitudes towards homosexual unions is one thing, but showing a photographer what your bottom and two-thirds of the side of one of your naked boobs looks like? You’ve broken our heart, Carrie Prejean.
Obviously the timely leak of the Carrie Prejean naked photos prove an important point. Or a point. Or no point. We stopped caring about this a month ago.
Ever since Perez Hilton tricked her into saying that she thought gay people were overfamiliar and untrustworthy – we’re paraphrasing – Miss California Carrie Prejean has become an unlikely poster girl. Alright, alright, a likely poster girl – after all, she looks like she’s been sewn together Frankenstein-style by a men’s magazine to encourage self-loathing acts of masturbation – but for an unlikely cause.
Carrie Prejean has become Little Miss Anti-Gay. Just last week Carrie Prejean made an anti-gay commercial, and she’s been punting around her newfound ‘but what if one of them tries to bum me in my sleep?’ (again, paraphrasing) stance around every TV show and publication she possibly can. Because she believes it, not just because she’s sure she can get a reality show out of it if she harps on about it for long enough.
However, it seems like Carrie Prejean might not be as squeaky-clean as she’s making out. Yesterday website thedirt.com published a sort-of naked photo of Carrie Prejean taken four years ago, showing her in just a pair of pink knickers with her hands over her norks. We’re not entirely sure of the relevance of this – there’s a chance that she’s either trying to turn gay men straight or make them vomit up their spines – but it does prove two important things:
1 – Carrie Prejean has always had freakishly orange skin, so it isn’t the result of a harrowing uranium spill like we previously suspected, and
2 – It might spell the end of Carrie Prejean’s term as Miss California. AP reports:
The Miss California USA pageant are looking into whether title holder Carrie Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to same-sex marriage and by posing semi-nude when she was a teenage model… “As you can see from the contract, she violated multiple items,” [spokesman Roger] Neal said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
You can see the pageant’s point here – for as long as Carrie Prejean keeps making deliberately-polarising remarks as Miss California, it could seem as though the organisation endorses her beliefs. And that’s no good – it can’t afford to alienate gay people, because they’re just about the only ones who watch their crappy little beauty contest in the first place.
So maybe Carrie Prejean should just do the decent thing and resign as Miss California now. After all, she’s made her point now, plus she’s the most famous Miss California for years – the only difference if she quit now would be that she could stop pretending to give a stuff about animals and the environment and crap.
And also we might hear about her a bit less. That’d be nice, too.
