Well, some people are psyched that Miss California USA Carrie Prejean is against same-sex marriage. Who? The people behind he National Organization for Marriage. They've put her in their brand-spanking new ad:

Politico's Ben Smith notes that NOM paints the scenario as Miss California being "immediately attacked." OMG who would attack a pretty, pretty beauty queen? A bitchy gay blogger, that's who. (Dennis Miller says she was asked harder questions than President Obama fields.)

Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese says of the ad:

The only terrible consequence of marriage equality they've demonstrated so far is a gay blogger disagreeing with a beauty queen.

As far as my cameo, I appreciate them emphasizing my point that when debating the merits of this issue they only have lies on which to rely. While we believe in honoring all relationships, their relationship with the truth could use some help.

As Videogum's Lindsay points out about NOM, "their new rationale for denying marriage equality…is basically 'It'll be so much paperwork, you have no idea!'"

Meanwhile, I am pissed. Because the National Organization for Marriage is not NOM. They are RUINING NOM!!! This is NOM:

Since when does having the ability to voice an opinion mean we won't get called on/deal with the consequences of said opinion? If you say something bigoted, people might point that out.

I mean, this sense of entitlement is just enormous. Yes, you have a right to hold your bigoted, outdated, reality ignoring, prejudiced opinion. That doesn't it RIGHT or OKAY. And it definitely shouldn't have any bearing on the HUMAN RIGHTS we all get to have regardless of who hates us for not being them.

I have just had it with this nonsense. I was called a bigot during the elections for pointed out that someone had voiced a bigoted, anti-gay sentiment on a friends blog. Apparently I am "intolerant of intolerant views". You know what? I am SO okay with that.
