OK, the pageant is the one that screwed up but she is the one getting the shaft.
I don't give two whits about pageants either (although a really enjoyed Miss Congeniality) but it doesn't mean someone who does and who likely spent a considerable part of her life getting to the point of winning the thing to then get screwed.
She has a right to an opinion. What if she said she was against capital punishment? Would that be held against her by someone who likes to barbecue all cop killers?
i don't think she looks any better because she's still a person who so blatantly chose to be proud of discrimination. that being said, i don't respect what Perez Hilton did either. he's pretty pathetic as a person. but he's not doing anything differently than what he does on his blog every day. so in that sense, i still think the pageant is at fault for bringing him in and letting him have free reign like that. fools, the lot of them.
My father left home when I was two, and I had negligible and fleeting input from anything approaching a warm, loving male father figure, and most certainly none in my infancy. Never once did I feel any ambiguity or doubt; I was always sure I liked women. Of course, I'm just a lucky exception right?]
No, you're the same as everyone else. Absence of a warm, loving father figure is not the sole determinant of a person's sexuality. Gender identity is very complex and I don't want to oversimplify it but paternal rejection or negativity from the age of about 2 years as opposed to paternal absence are key influences.

What, she was supposed to be politically correct at competition that's little more than a strip show for church goers?
obviously she should have done exactly that as it probably ruined her chance to win. i think when you've been in as many pageants as this woman has been in you should have learned along the way that you avoid controversy and being from California means she surely understood the controversy of the topic she was addressing. she could have easily said something like, "4 states now offer same sex marriages and other states have decided differently on the topic. my stance is that i am thrilled to live in a country as great as the united states where we have the opportunity to make decisions like this even when we don't always agree with the outcomes." ta da -- winner and she didn't have to say she wants to deny gay marriage.
