I live in New York. I am a comedian, writer and actor. My day job is blogging for VH1.com. I write about the silly things celebrities and pop stars do, so you know...God's work.
You may have seen my writing on many other reputable websites (McSweeney's, The Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, xojane.com, The Hairpin, Splitsider, The FW, etc.). I also write crazy blogs about Game of Thrones, Magneto and Jeff Goldblum.
Life's weird, right?
I haven’t met too many Eagle Scouts in my life. Statistically speaking, you shouldn’t meet too many Eagle Scouts in your life. The title’s only bestowed upon the best the Boy Scouts of America has to offer. The first Eagle Scout I met was a pal of mine in college. He was exactly the kind of person you’d envision being an Eagle Scout. He fit the Scout Law to a tee; he was trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obiedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
He was also gay.
Hello Giggles asked me to write another serious. This time on the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to reaffirm the ban on gay members.
Here’s my take on it and my pledge to start my own scout troop called the “Elephant Scouts of America”. We ban people who have never ridden an elephant because you can find any dumb reason to hate people.
