If you just read what those on on the left, particularly the gay left, and in their MSM echo chamber said about Carrie Prejean without hearing the beauty queen’s actual words, you might have thought she had slandered gays, saying that the reason “homosexuals” weren’t worthy of state-sanctioned married was because we were perverts, incapable of relationship.
But, she didn’t smear us. She just articulated how she defined marriage — which is how all societies have defined the institution since time immemorial, by gender difference.*
She might have merited such mockery had she truly derided gay people, but she didn’t. It just makes you wonder about the need of so many to vilify the politically incorrect. Considering why she didn’t say makes wonder me if their issue is not with her, but with themselves.
*To be sure, some societies have allowed men to have multiple wives, provided they were all female and an occasional society did sanction polyandry where a woman could have multiple husbands. Even in those cases, neither the wives nor the husbands were married to one another.
In the Native American berdache tradition, a man could marry another man, provided of course that one of the two lived in the guise of the opposite sex, in societies with more strictly defined gender roles than we have in the United States today.
