Kim Kardashian and George Takei on Prop 8
Kim Kardashian took to her blog yesterday to voice her opinion about the California Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage:
This really makes me sad. I thought we were more forward thinking than this, and I’m disappointed in the Supreme Court for being so closed minded. Everyone.. gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered, EVERYONE should have equal rights to marry who they want to. I have many gay friends and all I want is for them to be happy, yet this is just another obstacle in their way. Now they must continue fighting to be granted a basic civil right that many people take for granted. Shame on you, California! We must all continue to fight the h8!
Oh, awesome, she used “h8″ instead of “hate.” You can’t buy that kind of legitimacy. In the meantime, Star Trek veteran George Takei also spoke out on the court’s ruling to ban gay marriage yet keep previous marriages legal. TVGuide.com reports:
“They decided to be indecisive,” Takei tells TVGuide.com. “It was a ruling that doesn’t resolve anything because there is still inequality. It’s like [George Orwell's Animal Farm] — some pigs are more equal than other pigs. We’re more equal than some of the other gays and lesbians.”
Of course, one of these people is simply exploiting the situation in a never-ending quest for self-promotion, while the other has a legitimate reason to be involved. I’ll let you guys guess who the latter is. (Hint: Rhymes with “George Takei.”)
