What's your opinion about Miss California?
So I recently heard about Miss California and her answer about same sex marriage and thought it was important so I decided to write a blog about it. Miss Californias answer was that "in my country and in my family, I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman -- no offense to anyone out there." The first part that I don't get is her saying "in my country" her country? I thought we all lived in The United States, I mean she was trying to be Miss U.S.A. They even said that if it wasn't for that answer then she would have won Miss U.S.A. I'm not very sure on what my opinion is of this controversy. I believe in same sex marriage and i think it should be legal in all states of the U.S. but i also feel that its okay to speak your opinion. I think Carrie Prejean (Miss. California) could have worded her answer differently by stating what she believes but by not making it seem like that's the only way it should be. It's okay to have a opinion as long as you don't limit it from everyone else and making it sound like it's not alright to feel a certain way. Prejeans answer has hurt a lot of people including myself. She also stated that if she was to be able to answer the question again she wouldn't have changed her answer because she wanted to say what she really believed. I think that's fine but when you're on national TV especially trying to win Miss U.S.A you might want to consider everyone elses feelings and not just your own.
