I think it’s wonderful that Tila Tequila is finally doing something with her celebrity, by appearing in a NoH8 PSA released this week in response to the CA Supreme Court’s disappointing ruling on Prop 8 and blogging her support for gay marriage (for which she has received quite a bit of grief, see below).
Does this signal the dawn of a new-and-improved Tila Tequila? Well, after reading Tila’s blog post, “My Thoughts on Prop 8 Situation,” and her Tweets that followed, I can confidently conclude the following:
Tila’s a MARTYR FOR THE CAUSE!
The first thing I did was make a few tweets about it on my twitter page(www.twitter.com/OfficialTila). Immediately, I received an outpouring response from angry people. I felt as though I was being burnt as stake or beheaded for voicing my opinions, and I still stand tall in my beliefs. I guess times have not changed much because I very much so believe that this is TODAY’s version of “beheading” someone. Some people even had the nerve to call me “RACIST” for whatever their reasoning is just because I was disapointed in PRESIDENT OBAMA in his decisions for not supporting Gay Marriages.–from Tila’s post, “My Thoughts on Prop 8 Situation,” reposted to Global Grind
Now may I ask you all, what is the point of being in the “PUBLIC EYE” if you don’t have a voice or use that medium and take advantage of that outlet to speak your mind? I am not trying to harm anyone, nor am I trying to start a War. I am simply trying to voice my opinions on why I believe it is important for all human beings to have Equal rights. No where else in this world can I come to a new country as an immigrant, and yet be able to build a platform for myself, becoming an AMERICAN CITIZEN and having the ULTIMATE AMERCAN DREAM! Where else in this world can I enjoy such fresh freedom such as I do here? Only in AMERICA!–from “My Thoughts on Prop 8 Situation,” reposted to Global Grind
She’s a PARAGON OF COHERENCE!
Wait, what were we talking about here? Something having to do with gay marriage? I got so distracted thinking about martyrs, beheadings, Joan of Arc, the fact that I haven’t read the NY Times today (unlike some other very smart people), and tooting one’s own horn, I totally spaced on the real subject at hand.

So we know that all of you have already gone out and purchased Tila’s roman à clef, Hooking Up with Tila Tequila. But we’re pretty sure no one has examined it quite like this:
This interpretive reading was inspired by the viral vid Kittens Inspired by Kittens and uses the same audio. Which has Tila stoked–because a free
butt plug is a free butt plug, something she may want to keep in mind as she tries to censor the internet.

A little over a week ago, we received a takedown notification from Blogger telling us that Tila Tequila (and her legal team, presumably) has claimed DISGRASIAN has infringed upon her copyrights in a specific post written in April of last year. The post, coincidentally, was about the last Miley Cyrus flap, when she posed as pedobait for Vanity Fair, and it included the sage advice Tila had given Miley at the time as well as a screengrab from A Shot at Love (read it here before Tila “disappears” it). Here is a copy of the takedown notice:
The day before we received this notification, a blogger at Nerve also received a cease-and-desist letter from Tila’s people accusing the blogger of “unauthorized exploitation” of Tila’s name and image.
It sounds to us like Tila has begun a campaign to rehabilitate her image and become more mainstream. Perhaps she should have thought about that before she put titty shots of herself all over the internet, recorded crap songs like “I Like to Fuck,” wrote crap rants about the “Fuck God” that she tried to pass off as poetry, and made her dating life into a base, prurient, lowest common denominator-game show.
It also sounds a helluva lot like Tila Tequila believes in CENSORSHIP. Of the very same medium that made her, which, frankly, we find shockingly ungrateful. And while we don’t know a ton about the law, we do know that:
- Free speech is constitutional.
- We’re pretty sure that writing about and posting pictures of Tila Tequila is protected under Fair Use law.
- Just to be sure, we’re consulting legal experts in internet law at Harvard and Stanford.
- Did somebody say “takedown”?! We love a good, old-fashioned, motherfucking takedown.
In non-legalese, that means BRING IT, BITCH.
