Tila Tequila Takes Credit for Gay Marriage
Because sometimes what we all need on a Friday is a good laugh.
MTV reality queen Tila Tequila says she played a part in California recently dropping its ban on gay marriage. “It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she told Usmagazine.com at the Hollywood premiere of The Love Guru on Wednesday. “Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships],” she said. “Then they realized, ‘Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.’ The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal.”
I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
While I’m here, I’d just like to congratulate all of the Californians who’ve made their marriages legal since June 16th, and say a big ol’ F you to McCain for endorsing the ballot initiative that seeks to ban same-sex marriage. (Too bad Obama’s not much better.)
Whether Tila takes credit or Obama endorses it, it is a victory and I’m happy to celebrate it. Regardless of your views on marriage, I think we can all appreciate how important it is that we’re all granted equal rights under the law.
