Caption Me, Baby

Given all the news about Miss California's hypocritical anti-gay "Christianity" that's been in the news of late, I thought I'd run a fun little contest. Whoever writes the best caption for this photo in the next week or coupla a weeks (or whatever; I'm the goddess of this blog; I'll decide) will win a copy of For the May Queen. Winner will be announced on this blog soon. Let's say, before June. Post your captions in the comments of this entry.

You need to read Collin Kelley's blog entry about all the Miss California and all the other gay stuff that's been going on lately. He's hilarious and spot-on. And some Anonymous (don't you love it?) commenter has his panties in a bunch about it. Poor dude. Hey, history is with us, man. This is a civil rights issue. Get over it or you're gonna look like Ben Tillman in retrospect.

And did you hear Terry Gross on Fresh Air today? She did a whole show on gay civil rights, featuring the new movie Outrage (which is about outing political hypocrites) and ending with an interview of Camilla Taylor, a lawyer for Lambda Legal who was instrumental in making same-sex marriage happen in Iowa. Imagine this: She's a straight woman. She said she's taken on this cause because she doesn't want to live in a country where people are denied their civil rights.

All this...and with the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine today, I was reminded what a thrilling time this is to a queer or a queer-supporter in this country.

I'm thrilled about all of the legalization going on lately. Its about damn time! I see no reason why everyone that's in love can't enjoy the same rights as a man/woman marriage does right now. No matter who they are!

Can't help but think of the big smile she has on her face about the mouthful of limp noodles.

I am glad another state has come to its senses. Hey, even straight women can believe in the power of love...

Hi Kate--I told my Mom the other day how ridiculous this is--anyone CARING what Miss California USA says......
It's cray-silly that a pageant has a "morality" clause about nudity/partial-nudity when most of these gals are models/model-wannabe's. Given how they dress in the swimsuit competition(tiny bikinis)I guess the pageant wants to be sure they are the only ones allowed to make $$ off the T-n-A of the contestants!

Even while eating with my mouth open from the pan, I'm STILL don't appear as rude and ignorant as her.
