Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has criticized the media for asking how she would feel if she were paired up with a gay dancer on ABC's Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars.

She was asked the question at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

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

In a blog post on Wednesday, Palin called the question “silly.”

“If I can't dance with Mark [Ballas], I'd love to dance with a gay partner, a straight partner, or anything in between.”

“But the media can't seem to figure this out. In their simplistic minds, the fact that I'm a Christian, that I believe in God's plan for marriage, means that I must hate gays and must hate to even be in their presence. Well, they were right about one thing: there was hate in that media room, but the hate was theirs, not mine,” she wrote.

“To the Left, 'tolerance' means agreeing with them on, well, everything. To me, tolerance means learning to live and work with each other when we don't agree – and won't ever agree. So if I have a gay dance partner, we may have some interesting discussions about morality, marriage, and whether the government made him a great dancer because it built the roads that he drove on to dance practice.”
