At the Equality Forum rally in front of Independence Hall last week gay civil rights pioneer Frank Kameney stood on on the exact spot that he stood 45 years earlier one of about a dozen, looking like young Republicans in dull suits, marching for ‘homosexual rights.’
Great story right. But not worthy of any attention from mainstream media. The ‘gay angle’ story on CNN and other outlets continued to be the Miss America incident of (stripped!) Miss California Carrie Prejean belief there should be no same-sex marriage but wholly supports ‘opposite’ marriage because that’s how she was raised. Good for her. So articulate she was in her position. For career advancement, because her crown looks so gaudy in the mall parking lots, Prejean became the instant right wing antigay spokeswoman to ‘protect’ straight marriage.
This week when Maine was the 5th state to pass a same-sex marriage bill, the story was scuttled, because Prejean was exposed for posing for nude photos when she was 17, so she was stripped of her crown. At presstime Miss Malibu was assuming the crown as Miss California and she has been ‘thoroughly vetted.’ Dear CNN, Vet this.
