The Mistress Couldn't Agree More

The Mistress is so sick of hearing about Carrie Prejean(and her fake boobies which, the Miss America Pageant committee paid for), and her whining. I wish she would just go away! Coco de Mere asked me what I though of her and then I came across this letter from a reader of Dan Savage's column Savage Love. Dan's reply pretty much sums up Coco what I think. I couldn't agree more.

I’ve read and enjoyed your column for years and always found you to be well-reasoned and kind. That’s why your agreement with Perez Hilton (and your reiteration of his comments) on Miss California was so shocking. I’m a straight guy with a lifelong gay best friend. I’m totally for gay rights in all respects. Still, it’s beneath you to call someone who disagrees with your position a “dumb bitch.” You’re better than that, Dan! Though Christian conservatives are either too scared or too puritanical to accept gay marriage at this time, it doesn’t mean these millions of people are dumb. Change takes time. Don’t you see that what you and Mr. Hilton are promulgating is hatred against a person for that individual’s beliefs, something you both claim to abhor?
Basically On Your Side

Dan Savage's relpy-
I don’t think Miss California is a dumb bitch for her beliefs, BOYS, but for her actions. Love the sinner (dumb bitch), hate the sin (dumb bitchery). For the record, there are lots of reasonable folks out there who oppose same-sex marriage, and I can interact with them in a civil fashion. Heck, I voted for an opponent of marriage equality back in November.
What sets Miss CA apart from reasonable opponents of marriage equality, BOYS, is her opportunism coupled with her stupidity.
I thought Perez Hilton went too far when he called Miss CA a “dumb bitch” after the pageant, and I said so on my blog. But I started to come around to Hilton’s POV after Miss CA, despite having said at the pageant that she thought it was “great that Americans are able to choose” gay marriage or “opposite marriage,” joined a political campaign to deny marriage rights to gays and lesbians. Miss CA is leveraging her spat with Hilton for her own personal financial gain. Ghostwritten books, speaking gigs at evangelical churches, a potential guest-host gig on The View—beats work, huh? And so what if it oppresses gays and lesbians?
And that’s when I thought, “Hmm, I guess she is a bitch.”
And then came her interview on Fox News: “You know what, Greta? I don’t have the answers to everything,” Miss CA told Greta Van Susteren when she was asked about her position on civil unions. “I’m not running for political office. I don’t have the answers to everything, you know, in the world out there.” And when Van Susteren followed up by asking Miss CA what she thinks about civil unions and gay people adopting children, Miss CA responded, “I’m not a politician, so I can’t give you an answer to that.” So seeing as she’s not a politician, Miss CA can’t be expected to know what she herself thinks about adoptions and civil unions.
And that’s when I thought, gawd, she’s dumb.


  1. Well, and then there was the whole oops! I did have provocative pictures taken! Even though I signed a document saying I didn't. And oh, there's another one, taken while I wasn't paying attention and the wind blew my tiny vest open and still I'm looking provocatively at the camera while not paying attention. It's a wardrobe malfunction! Pesky Satan.
    This is all about self promotion and has nothing to do with deeply held beliefs.

  2. So over her! And I just saw today that the Miss Americia committee paid for her boob job! What the jell is this place coming to? Meanwhile, the Dan Savage!

  3. Would she please just go away!


Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
