Why Former SF Pride Queen Karyme Lozano Supports Marriage Ban: ‘You Like Chocolate, I Like Vanilla’

Karyme Lozano, the heterosexual Mexican telenovela star, in 2008 was crowned queen at the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade. But this is Karyme now, at the National Organization for Marriage’s bus tour (Vota Tus Valores) where she’s helping drum up support among Latino voters for Carly Fiorina. How to rationalize her “support” for the gays (she has gay friends!) with her support for marriage discrimination?

Because Karyme had “a big conversion” a year and a half ago when her father died from cancer. She had a “big, big change in my life. I still have gay friends … they respect the way I think now.” And it’s “not what I don’t support, because I’m not judging,” but rather what she does support: chastity. Karyme says she and some of her gay friends have taken promises of abstinence. Now she “controls herself,” because she wants to get married or some crap.

But wouldn’t supporting The Gays’ right to marry promote monogamous relationships among gays? She’ll have to get back to you on that — when she figures out that NOM has sunk millions of dollars into banning same-sex marriage, something she’s either unaware of or refuses to believe.

So what would she say to her critics who now think she’s a traitor? “If you like chocolate and I like vanilla, I still love you, I don’t care if you like chocolate, but respect me that I like vanilla.” And, uh, respect us that we like chocolate? I guess?

      It is well known she’s a lesbian, or at least used to be, I think that’s where all this abstinence thing is coming from

      @josep86av: That makes this whole situation even more sickening. Who ever decided absinence was such a good idea? Why deny yourself a basic yearning? Why be in love with someone but maybe wait three years (or rush into a long lasting legally binding commitment that will cost you alot of money to do right) to share yourself with them? I’m so bored with monothiestic religion and its sense of entitlement to a stake in my private life.

      Why is Karyme wearing a revealing top? Put some clothes on, you silly girl. Show some modesty when you are out in public.

      I can’t understand a damn thing she says anyway. It’s all yakity yak yak, in her make-believe language anyway. The only thing that I care about is that she stay out of my coin bowl the next time she cleans the house.

      @Fitz I think your comment is just retarded and racist.. yes there are lots of mexicans that clean houses, but in the end it is an honest job, not to be made fun of, and stop stereotyping. I’m pretty sure Karyme’s way richer and more educated than you. Her english is actually pretty good, do you have a hearing impairment or something? Or are you just jealous she speaks a 2nd language? And fyi the richest man in the world is mexican, and some of the most traveled, educated, intelligent and rich people in the world live in Mexico and are mexican, not that I would expect you to know, after all you’re a United Statesian (stereotype). So stop making fun of a whole country based only on the examples you see close to where you live. Tu compris? (that’s french)

      @francisco:

      You want us to stay quiet and not express our honest opinion of her and at the same time you say “We are in a country were freedom of speech exists!” That’s a bit hypocritical. You don’t have to agree or support gay marriage because it makes no difference to me. My question is why work to get it banned so it’s not an option for people who do support it? My problem is with her actively working to ban gay marriage. Her attitude is “I don’t want it so noone should be allowed to have it!” She is not simply “sharing her opinion”,she is campaigning to get it banned entirely. That’s intolerant.

      I really don’t understand what NOM is trying to achieve with this “You like vanilla, I like chocolate” argument. Are they trying to patronize us? Are they trying to make heterosexuality look as precarious as homosexuality? Do they think that if people see sexual orientation as a valid concept it will make them more opposed to marriage equality? I really don’t get it. It just seems like pure hate mongering and bullying.

      Someone should check out her papers and have her deported back to Mexico… (great way to show NOM is importing retards) This bitch is a two faced slopy slut that obiviously has been pissed on a few too many times and is now angry at everyone – probablly has red marks all over her body where she’s been poked with the 10 foot pole.

      The issue isn’t that we like chocolate and you like vanilla, it’s that you’re trying to stop us from having chocolate.

      If gays are chocolate then this approach is bound to backfire.

      I used to work at Dairy Queen.

      People totally prefer chocolate over vanilla.

      You like chocolate, I like vanilla, therefore chocolate should be banned.

      Makes sense to me.

      Gee, what a shock, she’s gone through a major life change and is now nuts.

      The thing is, if she REALLY just had a change of opinion she wouldn’t be riding around with NOB. There is something deeper going on here, either her father on his deathbed said she had dissappointed him or something else.

      “Because Karyme had “a big conversion” a year and a half ago when her father died from cancer. She had a “big, big change in my life.’”

      I assume that translates as “I used to be all f*cked up on drugs, but now I’m all f*cked up on the Lord”.

      Which only goes to show how homophobic and dangerous religions of the sky pixie variety are!!!

      Especially for f*ck-witted idiots like this bimbo.

      Saying this issue is not about gay marriage and that they’re just advocating for traditional marriage is just a passive-aggressive way of saying that gays and lesbians are second class. I guess NOM is touring the US to promote traditional marriage just in case heterosexual Americans forgot that they are suppose to marry someone of the opposite gender. What a bunch of dumbassess…

      The same idiots who endorse strictly heterosexual marriage commonly do so predicated on the dumfuk arguments that “gay couples cannot reproduce” and “it’s not natural.”

      Then they endorse chastity, a non-reproductive, completely unnatural lifestyle. Until such time as they choose not to be chaste anymore, then they may choose to marry.

      YOUR choice is to choose to live just like them, or live as a second-class citizen.

      They do not see this as being even remotely totalitarian. Hurrah.

      Too bad, you homosexual don’t get the point, and don’t want to wake up to reality.
      Since the creation of earth until now 2010… only, man and woman are true family, and will always find the support and right you are screaming for… Get Real, Get God.

      @Not_hosexual is good Homosexual: Oh how very ironic that in the same post you invite some to “wake up to reality” and then “Since the creation of the earth …”.

      How about you pack your God up, along with all the prejudices you both share (isn’t that amazing that your God is bigoted in the exact same ways you are?) and keep them in your church and our of my government. Deal? Or maybe, since you and your fellow God-people are so interested in government, it’s time you give up your tax-exempt status.

      This bitch is NOT famous. She does not hold any clout in Mexico or Latin America. She is a D-list star (and not of the Kathy Girffin variety) that no one pays attention to. I don’t think she has converted anyone to the NOM agenda.
