Gays of the World,
let’s screw up that stupid bitch!
I understand and empathize, but don’t believe that violence is the answer.
She has either learned (about the ignorance of her comment), or was pressured by a significant person or group to recant and apologize for her statement.
Will she make the mistake again? Highly unlikely. If she does, then she will have no ‘I apologize for my ignorance’ defense.
Either way, I think that she has learned her lesson, and it’s guys like us – every one of us, standing up and calling out homophobia where and when we see it, that’s going to change the world.
Good thing the “man upstairs” has your back, ’cause Ms. Martin will cut a bitch!
Beauty queens from Peru will be beauty queens from Peru
Yeah. Let’s hug everyone.
Sorry, I’m just going off to be sick.
This could have been avoided if the world saw me as the “reigning” Miss Peru… just sayin’
Where is Peru?
@Miss Coco Peru: You are the ONLY Miss Peru in my book!
She probably realized she could loose her crown. But hey she did apologize so that makes everything ok. I am kind of tired of these people who say hurtful hateful things then turn around and say “oh i’m sorry” then everyone thinks it’s all cool.
You got that right Honey!!!!!!
Well she did apologize
On top of that promised to fight homophobia
So it’s not just An “I’m sorry you feel that way” kind of non apology.
Maybe we should giver her a chance to prove it?
@Hector. Peru is about a block south of Pasadena Wyoming.
I would like to commend Ricky Martin though for being visible in the Latin community. I know he is no longer as famous as he was but it helps to have someone like him on our team.
“Miss Peru” should be so lucky as to have a son who grows up to be as talented, handsome, sexy and yes, gay as Ricky Martin. How long before we see this humble “representative of Peruvian beauty” LOL starring in her own “It gets better video”?
Well, I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. She very likely grew up in a very conservative environment, and obviously does not quite understand what it is like to grow up as a gay male. From what I understand, Peru is very conservative outside its major cities, and one is bound to pick up some misinformation along the way. At least we aren’t seeing another rendition of Carrie PRejean, who just dug her heels in further, and made herself into some kind of a martyr (although her Jesus says posing for nudie pictures is ok). Best of luck to all the MU contestants this year!
@Miss Coco Peru: For this comment only, queerty needs a like button, rarely have I seen truer words written on Queerty. There should be only one Miss Peru.
@Sukhrajah: I genuinely don’t believe that Carlos was advocating violence…doyou think violence is the only way the gay community could screw up a beauty queen? Where do you think all those dresses come from? And who do you think applies the layers of paint and hair?
She may end up the only “representative of Peruvian beauty” doing her own hair, and in a dress from the Peruvian equivalent of Loehmann’s
The thing is that people say these stupid things, suffer an unexpected (by them put altogether too predictable) backlash and then apologize and ask for forgiveness.
What people seem to forget is that no has to accept an apology or offer forgiveness. It’s sort of up to the person wronged at that point.
Sad as it is, there are a lot of people who still believe in this. You have this person with her ignorant comment and the Chick a fil CEO with his stupid comment and you wonder where the hell have these people have had their heads for the last 10 years a least. Sorry but you can’t fix stupid.
@Hector: Unfortunately, feigning ignorance in this case does not make such a statement irrelevant; it only makes you seem out of your league.
I’ve met people who honestly believe the molested thing. My sister once a had a coworker discover she was a lesbian and tell her “Oh I’m so sorry that happened to you!” It took them ages of conversation for my sister to figure out the coworker had learned somewhere along the way that lesbians become lesbians when their fathers molest them as children.
So it’s disgusting and ignorant that she said it, but at least she recanted when told differently. Since she didn’t make standard non apology apology, I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt at least. If people in Canada (where my sister is) and the US (where I am) can believe that nonsense, not such a stretch that it’s being taught even more effectively in places like Peru.
@Sukhrajah: There’s no ignorance in this case, she knew what she was saying and recanted because she had to. period.
she apologized coz shes gonna lose her crown PERIOD AND ITS HER DREAM TO JOIN MISS U!!!….that ignorant bitch
I lol’d so hard X)
And the hate groups like NOM et al will say she was pressured by the “Gay Agenda”.
Yes, but don`t forget she is BLOODY Catholic :-( WTF.
Ugly on the inside can never be erased.
Can someone please help that girl with her make-up? On a less serious note, give the girl a break. She said something stupid out of a place a ignorance and when challenged, she apologized. Carrie Prejean still hasn’t learned that lesson.
Sorry to THE REAL MCP. I posted in jest. I do apologize. Please forgive me your loveliness!
OMG, was that really Miss Coco Peru!!???
Love you! x
re Cindy Mejia: it’s amazing how quickly people like this say one thing absolutely categorically, seemingly with unshakeable belief and then when they get a backlash they say the complete opposite. Maybe she thought her original comments would make her more popular??? Seems hard to believe.
This is all the influence Christianity. Why does no one advise her to stick her homophobic Bible in her butt? Why are gay people afraid of saying anything against an ideology that spreads homophobia?
She sure is ignorant
Ahhhh screw her and The Donald
