Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, insisted on Friday that she is not homophobic.

At the Television Critics Association summer pres tour, Palin, who'll appear on ABC's Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, was asked her feelings about gay folks.

“I like gays,” she told reporters. “I'm not homophobic. Just because I'm for traditional marriage.”

In May, Palin criticized President Barack Obama for supposedly letting his daughters influence his views on gay marriage.

The single mother wrote in a blog post titled Hail to the Chiefs – Malia and Sasha Obama: “While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids' worldview.”

“In this case, it would've been nice if the President would've been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.”
