Here’s one Californian who we can assume voted for discrimination in her home state.
Prejean says, “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offence to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”
What troubles me most about Miss California’s response is that she implies that we–and I believe that with “we,” she’s referring to all U.S. citizens–have the choice to marry someone of the same-sex. Unfortunately, this is not true for all U.S. citizens: only those in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Vermont have the choice.
