This is a real shame because I tend to focus too much on poor traits and will now have trouble looking past these racist statements and still enjoying the company of this person. This is, in itself a bit of a judgement. Oh, bother.
Here is something else I am upset about: The Miss California controversy. In case you're out of the loop, at the pageant, Perez Hilton asked her how she felt about gay marriage.
This is an opinion question. She stated that she grew up in a traditional family and believed marriage is for one man and one woman. An honest answer.
The girl has been fired for causing "controversy." So, what was the question then? "Repeat after me, 'gays should marry.'"?
She was asked for her opinion, she gave it. I'm defending her and I don't even agree with her! People are allowed to have differing opinions. It's part of being diverse just as homosexuals and those who support their rights is.
Is it because the question was asked by a homosexual?
Personally, I just don't really understand judgement based on race, sexuality, OR opinion.
Actually, that's probably I lie. I often unintentionally say "what a douchebag" when near a Republican. I am a hypocrite.
