In both cases we find people being treated as beneath contempt as not meriting the slightest basic human decency as, essentially, unpersons unless and until they meet certain conditions. It so happened that Susan Boyle met those conditions by demonstrating an unsuspected and unlikely-seeming artistic talent. Carrie Prejean, meanwhile, excluded herself from those conditions by demonstrating an incorrect opinion.
This is graphable:
And the combination thereof:
The lesson for us all:
The priorities for someone wishing to be treated decently are clearly:
1. Conform to the correct opinions.
2. Have some artistic talent of some sort that will impress people.
3. Be beautiful.
At the very least, make sure you conform.
I am so screwed.
