Opposite Marriage

Just to keep all of you in the know...I copied Wednesday's Word of the Day from : opposite marriage

The P.C. way to specify the legal union of a man and a woman, as made popular by Miss California at the 2009 Miss USA pageant.

MISS CALIFORNIA: "We live in a land that you can choose same sex marriage or opposite marriage"

After witnessing some horrible behavior by The Donald, I refuse to watch anything that he is a part of or will profit from, so I did not witness California's great representation of our state the other night in the Miss USA contest. (Although I am being slightly facetious, Prop 8 did pass so she is indeed an example of an average Californian, right?? Uuggh... And no, she's NOT from LA!) If you want to see the video or read more about the whole debacle, click the picture to be linked to the whole report.

So was this another political rant post or a post
making fun of a pageant girl who can't communicate?
(Seriously, "opposite marriage"?)
You decide.

Did she really say "We live in a land that you can choose..." ? is English her first language? even I know that this is not grammatical. I had never heard "opposite marriage" but Jim told me what that must be - I thought it was just opposites attract, or something like that, opposite characters I mean.

That's the point; she made up the term "opposite marriage".

Just now rereading this post and wanted to make sure that it is clear that I was being very sarcastic. I am so disgusted by the whole thing. Any two adults should be able to get married. All people should have equal rights no matter their "race" or religion or nationality or the person they love. :)
