Carrie Prejean, Even Sluttier Than You Thought

Timothy Kincaid

November 4th, 2009

It seems Carrie Prejean’s pretenses of superior moral character are as fake as her boobs or the National Organization for Marriage’s advertising.

From TMZ

Carrie Prejean demanded more than a million dollars during her settlement negotiations with Miss California USA Pageant officials — that is, until the lawyer for the Pageant showed Carrie an XXX home video of her handiwork.

The video the lawyer showed Carrie is extremely graphic and has never been released publicly. We know that, because TMZ obtained the video months ago but decided not to post it because it was so racy. Let’s just say, Carrie has a promising solo career.

Why, oh why, does this not surprise me?

Now for those of you who may have, in some moment of passion, pulled out the video camera to document your eternal love, I’m not criticizing your personal cinematic endeavors.

Unless, of course, you want to preach at me about “opposite marriage” or pretend that you have a hotline to God. Because if the creator of the universe has some special message for mankind that he wants to reveal through you, he’s probably first going to suggest that it might be more “biblically correct” if you weren’t a skanky slut.

The only down side to all of this is that Charles LiMondri, the San Diego Attorney / Anti-gay Activist is getting his legal fees paid.

No one is saying who else might’ve been involved, though TMZ hints the tape only shows Prejean.

Oh …

can’t you go blind from that?

Well…. I know that there is no explicit Biblical “don’t” listed for female masturbation, but aren’t you not supposed to do it when you’re a conservative Christian? Isn’t that considered a sin?

Also, her solo-work means she isn’t technically a slut; only she was involved in the sexual activity.

But it makes me wonder why she made the video in the first place, if it wasn’t a coupling endeavor, as these things tend to be.

btw, apparently the $100,000 being paid to prejean’s lawyer will only cover a fraction of the legal fees. I dunno how large that fraction is but it’s not the whole thing.

Maybe Prejean came make a real video and have it promoted in the Salt Lake Tribune. I hear that would be a good market for that sort of thing.

I wonder if she used a crucifix?

I don’t know about slutty. I’d stick to hypocrite.

Burr, she’s a wingnut. Hypocrisy goes with the job description, so it’s kinda old hat. The interesting stuff is everything else – as long as you have a bottle of emergency brain-bleach handy, of course. Otherwise, give me Bambi and a bullet.

Skanky slut? Really? Is it necessary to call Carrie Prejean a whore to point out that she’s wrong about same-sex marriage?

I’m not buying the “it’s the hypocrisy!” argument here, either. This is just mean-spirited slut-shaming. I normally read BTB because it’s *not* Gawker, thanks.

Timothy didn’t call her a whore. He called her a skanky slut. We don’t know whether that term is technically accurate — for all we know she may be a virgin — so okay, maybe the “slut” part might call for a New York Times-style correction with apologies to sluts everywhere.

Skanky though, that’s about right.

Timothy, I share the anger and disappointment you feel about the results from Maine, but I find your use “skanky slut” very inappropriate. I expect more from BTB. If you need a break to deal with the passions from last night, take one. This is why I’m refraining from posting anything right now because I don’t trust myself to avoid more colorful metaphors…

Liadan,

I think the skanky slut thing is meant to be ironic, because she’s a holier-than-thou christian, and therefore would call someone else a skanky slut for the very same reasons.

I’d be very much surprised if anyone here really had a problem with people who like sex.

I wonder if the readers at the Focus on the Family or WorldNetDaily or Freeper websites take offense and jump to our defense when people call us names the way everyone is falling all over themselves here standing up for the honor of this self-righteous, hypocritical, skanky slut?

John

Perhaps if she is so hard up for cash, she should sell the video, or make a better one.

Or…she could just slink away and disappear. Either would be more productive than her current actions of blaming everyone but herself for her difficulties.

@TampaZeke: I’m not sure if they do or don’t but I’m sure it doesn’t matter. Civil behavior is civil even if the courtesy is not returned.

If the use of “skanky slut” is intended as irony then it might be a little too on-the-nose.

If it’s just name calling then I think a similar article which didn’t employ pejoratives would be classier and more keeping with the level of discourse I’ve grown to expect from BTB.

I offer only the age-old defense: some of my best friends are sluts. Really. You can ask them and they’ll happily tell you. In fact, they probably have video to prove it.

But that isn’t my point.

I know nothing about Carrie Prejean’s personal sex life. She may be a virgin or she may be going on Craig’s List with an ad “door unlocked, lights off, use me”. I really don’t care.

But what I do care about is Carrie’s character. She has been presented to the nation as a warrior against the sexually wanton culture of homosexuality. She is the face of virtue and biblically correct morals.

But that is not Carrie at all. She is not being true to herself. Instead she has sold herself out, marketed both her looks and her values, and taken a position for sexual prudity that clearly was not important to her when she was filming herself gettin’ happy. She sold her body – and her soul – to the first bidder that came along. She didn’t even hold out for a staff position or a career promise. She was cheap and easy.

Regardless of what Carrie does or does not do in bed (or the kitchen table), when it comes to personal character and moral worth, Carrie Prejean is a skanky slut.

And if she doesn’t already, I think she will soon regret crawling in bed with those she was to quick to throw herself at.

I think she will soon regret crawling in bed with those she was to quick to throw herself at.

If you’re referring to NOM, it may be too much to think that she’ll regret crawling into bed with them, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they already regret allowing her into the bed with them–and, in fact, inviting her to come in.

While I do have qualms about the “skanky slut” remark–like Priya and others I don’t think it’s a bad thing–I get that the real issue is Prejean’s superior attitude. My first reaction–before I read the story–was to give her some benefit of the doubt. I thought possibly she’d made the tape with some guy and he’d released it. The devil is in the details, though–this was a solo tape and it sounds like it was made for promotional purposes.

“I offer only the age-old defense: some of my best friends are sluts.”

Timothy, sadly this (presumably) tongue-in-cheek defense is as tone deaf as the post it refers to. The truth is you just don’t do snark terribly well. There’s nothing wrong with that–and you do many other things quite well–but please (Jim’s indulgent comment aside) it really doesn’t reflect well on you or this site when you try to be bitchy and funny and toss off misogynistic slurs…

Not to mention, that first sentence is a grammatical train wreck. Post fail.

Timothy, whether it’s metaphorical or otherwise, you’re still saying ‘slut’ like it’s a bad thing. Would some of your best friends approve of that?

Her hypocrisy is amusing (and always was blatant, video or no video) but this language is not cool. I would appreciate that New York Times style apology, Jim.

Priya Lynn

While I don’t like people saying “slut” like its a bad thing, I think Timothy has a point. As he said “She has been presented to the nation as a warrior against the sexually wanton culture of homosexuality.” and yet her behavior doesn’t live up to the same religious standards used to condemn gays – its highly hypocritical.

werdna

@Priya Lynn-I think you’re quite right, and that’s what’s most regrettable about Timothy’s tone in this post. Prejean’s hypocrisy is blatant and deserves to be noted, but the manner of delivery here distracts with its poor taste.

Priya Lynn
November 5th, 2009 | LINK

Ummm…I really don’t know about the tone thing. My “You say skanky slut like its a bad thing” remark was a bit tongue in cheek. Overall I really don’t have much of a problem with the tone of this post – I think it makes the hypocrisy thing pretty apparent and is consistent with how a religious conservative would likely view things.

Yesterday Timothy said on a different discussion: “Personal attacks are not allowed at BTB.”

And today he said: “Carrie Prejean is a skanky slut.”

Sorry, that was just too ironic to pass up.

Carrie Prejean is a “skanky slut?”
I think you owe skanky sluts everywhere a big apology, Timothy.

It wouldn’t be the Salt Lake Tribune nor the Mormon-owned Deseret News. I didn’t get the feeling Mormons were giving Ms. Prejean any accolades. In fact, most Mormons I know were not thrilled with how the former Miss California acted and probably knew to keep away from her. It was mostly the Evangelical Christians that came to her defense.

Unless I missed some rant on Mormon Glenn Beck’s show?

In the interests of developing a more acceptable label for Carrie, how about we all agree to drop the use of “slut,” and go with “Godly skank,” or “skanky Christian?”

I like “slutty christian” because you can be a slut and a christian.

what’s not slutty about making a bunch of JO vids of yourself to send to some guy you just met 4 days ago?

It’s my understanding these weren’t sent to some long term bf, but a man she had only just begun seeing.

So, yes, I would call that rather slutty. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a slut — unless you’re presenting yourself as a chaste and pure warrior for God against wickedness.

Apparently marriage is between a woman, a man she just met, a camera phone, and a well-placed mirror.

I wonder what God was telling her when she was making 8 films and 30 photos — “make sure you charge the battery” ?

Well this is an old post. I held back on calling her slutty because I thought possibly she made it for herself..
