Ellen Sounds Off on the Boy Scouts Gay Ban, Reveals Adorable Photo of Herself as a Girl Scout: VIDEO


Ellen urged the Boy Scouts to drop their ban on gays yesterday, noting that she herself was once a Girl Scout (who are much more equality-minded than their male counterparts) for "about a day", and there are much scarier things to worry about while camping than gay people.

  1. Ellen reaches an audience of millions, and gets us allies and friends none of the rest of us can reach. And she does it all with a laugh and a smile. We all owe her so much!

  2. Ellen (and Jon Stewart) keep me from losing my mind in the face of day to day bigotry in this country...

  3. God bless Ellen for all she's done and continues to do for her fellow LGBTs. She commands the respect of so many because of her light-hearted take on issues combined with her humor. Gentle persuasion for anyone making up their (open) minds about gays!

  4. I love how she mocks herself. She's a treasure.

  5. Ditto what RICHARD said, but "bigotry, ignorance, power-grubbing'.

  6. Humor and Heart. Winning America over, one chuckle and beat at a time.

  7. Every time I see her do something like this, I'm even more impressed than before. I'm sorry that she was treated so shabbily when she first came out, but she has done so much more with her talk show than she could have possibly done with a sitcom that it's amazing.

    And one more poke in the eye to the people who at the time were gloating that they got her pulled off the air.

  8. Too bad we couldn't give Ellen a set of balls, which was all she really ever wanted.

  9. Sounds like you have a set you aren't using Josh....

  10. Ellen is so effective. Maybe she can pick up a set at JCPenney's before it goes out of business in 2013 a predicted.
