Tila Tequila Takes Credit for California Gay Marriage Decision


Why did the California Supreme Court overturn the state's ban on same-sex marriage?

The reality TV actress told Us magazine: "It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement. Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, 'Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.' The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal."

You're kidding! And all this time I thought it was Lindsay Lohan's doing!

  4. If anything sets the Gay Marriage movement back, it will be Tila Tequila taking credit for it!! Isn't her 15 minutes up yet?

  5. Tequila has been responsible for many a straight marriage. It's only fair that tequila brings the gays together too.

  6. Fuck her, and her shitty MTV series.

    her 15 minutes were up a long time ago.

    People are still aprehensive about gay/lez/bi/trans things Tila, and your show isn't helping the whole "gay people are slutty" argument.

  7. She can't sing and has very little talent, and the show is sleazy as all get out, but it is all harmless. And lesbianism and homosexuality are taken as the norm on her show, which is refreshing; it isn't preachy or after-school-specially--it's whore-y, like everything else on MTV. Moreover, those few guys who are jerkwads about the whole gay thing are vilified through editing and confessionals and then, usually, eliminated.

    Talentless, to be sure, but she makes gays normal, so that's good in my book.

  12. Quote: "People are still aprehensive (sic) about gay/lez/bi/trans things Tila, and your show isn't helping the whole 'gay people are slutty' argument."

    It's MTV. Sandwiched between The Hills and The Real World, it merely shows gays are just as irresponsibly slutty as straights.

  13. Surely this a cross-promotion with another wretched MTV show and we're being Punked!

  17. What an insult to the couples and folks who are risking who they are to advance the cause of equal rights. What some people won't do to advance their own careers.

  18. Any gay shrinks out there with a theory why the LGBT movement has long had a hugely disproportionate number of parasitic, brain-dead Certified Attention Whores attached to it?

    I bet this card carrying cunt couldn't come up with the name of ONE person who has actually WORKED for, FOUGHT for gay marriage equality, from Jack Baker & James McConnell who applied for a marriage license in Minnesota THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO forward. Y'all remember this great moment the next time someone is passing out praise and plaques to Brian Graden and the other "Gay Bashing Reggae Money Is STILL Money" shekel chasers at MTV.

  20. U fags are fucking bitter!!! get off her pussy god damn!

  21. Christ, Leland, that MTV reggae money crap you keep trotting out is almost as tired as your anti-Reichen sermonizing. Get a new shtick.

  22. miss tequila seems to be a force to be reckoned with as we all know the power of mtv and certainly if her show persuades more young studs to get down on all fours and take it up the ass or suck cock she certainly has my vote in that the more people can be persuaded to go against their natural inclinations and go gay i say that is better for the world all around. bravo miss tequila!

  23. Regardless of what I think of her show--hate it, She has a following, she normalizes the sexual continuum and she is smart enough to make money hand over fist. She's much more likely to be an astute marketer than the witless wonder she presents to the world.

  24. I agree with her 100%. She IS the reason gay marriage is legal in California, and it sort of pisses me off that people are laughing at her because of a factual quotation.

    These are also the same people that deny Tequila sewed the first flag, was the actual author of the Gettysburg address, led American forces at the Invasion of Normady, and negotiated the release of American hostages from Iran. At a certain point, people are going to just accept that fact that almost everything good in American history stems from Tila Tequila. Until then, we're just living in a sad state of denial.

  25. Did an ignorant loser named Dakota really drop the f-bomb on this site? Ugh....people like Dakota make me sick to my stomach....and people like Tila T. are the reason why I do not do MTV or any other plastic bullshit. She is attempting to take credit for years of pain, suffering and hardwork that is not hers to own. I do not think feeling that way makes any of us bitter people as Dakota seems to think...the reality is that idiots who still use the word fag make me bitter. Get a life you ignorant hate monger. I'd bet money your boyfriend likes it when you call him a f** as he plows into is always the self hating closet cases who feel the need to use that word. Don't worry though because God loves you and he loves me gay as I am. :) There is help for people like you if you are willing to accept it.
