There, I said it. I can appreciate someone's creativity, I can appreciate someone's work ethic, I can appreciate someone's mental fortitude, but I cannot (and shouldn't be required to) appreciate someone's sexuality. Call me old-fashioned, but I don't believe that somebody's sexual preferences should define them. The fact that I like women, doesn't determine who I am as a man... My principles do. Am I so wrong as to think that the same litmus test should apply across the board?
So we all know about the "Perez Hilton -- Miss U.S.A" fiasco. Perez carried out a low-down, dirty trick by asking a political question (a practice from which the judges are strictly forbidden) in regards to Proposition 8.
I don't believe that somebody's sexual preferences should define them.
Now Perez could have chosen from a multitude of more appropriate questions to ask, yet (as always), it comes back to some sort of question about sexuality.
