I could hardly listen to this truly cringe-worthy kid. Talk about “sickening” and so very, very sad. The ignorance, the self-righteous attitude from such a young guy is both appalling and heartbreaking. I can only imagine what his parents are like. He clearly learned this fear and hatred from someone.
“Perverted belief,” Caiden Cowger? Really? Tell that to my family members. Tell that to those in the military who are protecting you and your country. Tell that to any gay, lesbian, or transgender American who, believe it or not, is just like you.
“Obama, if you are encouraging it, you are making kids gay.”
Uh-oh, now words alone can turn you gay (like that’s a bad thing?). Someone call Marcus Bachmann, stat!
In an email to the Miss Universe Organization [which operates the Miss USA pageant] she explained just how she really felt about trans people:
[I refuse to be] part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural born males to compete in it. This goes against ever moral fiber of my being. I believe in integrity, high moral character, and fair play, none of which are part of this system any longer.
But on her Facebook page, she lied, and claimed this was the real reason she pulled out:
I will relay to you the reasoning behind my resignation. I witnessed another contestant who said she saw the list of the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED proceed to call out in order who the Top 5 were before they were announced on stage… I knew the show must be rigged; I decided at that moment to distance myself from an organization who did not allow fair play and whose morals did not match my own.
What morals were those again, Sheena?
