carrie-prejean-picOh, karma, you glorious bitch.  Remember Carrie Prejean, the Californian beauty pageant contestant who hates gays but loves the fake boobs pageant officials bought for her?  Turns out she dropped her lawsuit against pageant officials once she realized they had in their possession an “extremely graphic” sex tape of herself.  Alone.  Playing solitaire, shall we say.

So, just to recap: homosexuality = bad; making a video of yourself tickling the ol’ ivories = good.

I can’t wait to see how her cheerleaders on the Christian right spin this one.  Demonic possession, anyone?

i dont know about the parallel or the cosmic cancellation on this one, what with the video-taping yourself masturbate and disliking gays.

youre saying that the christian fundamentalists who have been defending her stance on homosexuality will now have to reassess their support due to her sexual deviancy (which, clearly, masturbation is not).

the weirdest part is that every time we hear about real sexual deviancy, such as harassment, sex clubs (hey there D.C.!) for politicians to cheat on their partners, and drugging minors, its the rethuglican christian right.

bones in closets anyone?

It’s the hypocrisy in portraying yourself (and allowing yourself to be used as a figurehead by others who portray you) as being squeaky-clean, when in reality you’re just as human as the rest of us. The parallel is that it’s sanctimonious and hypocritical to condemn “the homosexual lifestyle” as being immoral, and then go home and videotape yourself masturbating. Prejean is now discovering what the rest of us already know: one person’s immorality is another person’s fun Saturday night.

But if the right-wingers had known about this tape beforehand, they wouldn’t have been so quick to pick up her cause. If they stick with her, they’re going to have to come out and say that it’s perfectly normal to videotape yourself masturbating (or that it’s proof you’re a lost soul in need of spiritual guidance). Maybe it is normal, but we both know that’s something you’ll never ever hear Rick Santorum or Ralph Reed or any these other Christian crusaders copping to in public. To them, sex is dirty and icky (unless you’re making babies, and then it’s divine), and using yourself as an amusement park (as George Costanza’s mother would say) is just wrong.

nice seinfeld reference, first of all.

also, as i was writing my comment, i was figuring the relationship out between the two, and this quote sums it up: “one person’s immorality is another person’s fun Saturday night.”.

i almost wish i could be surprised by this kind of thing anymore, but sadly, i just shake my head.

and then i go tape myself masturbating to gay porn.

take that christian fundamentalist right-wingers!
