The response of Miss USA candidate, Carrie Prejean, to a question on gay marriage has received quite a bit of press recently. Perez Hilton, the judge who asked the question, tells his opinion all over his blog. Hilton says it is the duty of Miss USA to be politically correct.

As women, I think it is interesting to address the issue of Pageants. Are they demeaning or idolizing women?Are these women spokespeople or just a pretty face? In addition, how much does a spokesperson for a country represent the beliefs of the country? And further, does legalizing gay marriage represent the United States? I have many a comment, but I’d like to hear your thoughts!
