The Boy Scouts of America has decided to postpone its decision about reconsidering its ban on gay members for three months … and Ellen DeGeneres has a thing or two to say about it.
In her monologue, DeGeneres discussed the situation with her usual flair. As she put it, “They won’t let their members be gay, or openly gay anyway, but they’re letting them wear neckerchiefs and green short shorts?”
DeGeneres argued that the Boy Scouts of America needs to teach acceptance and self-confidence in order to produce better leaders. After all, if you’re camping, do you care if the guy next to you is gay or straight? According to DeGeneres, you should be more worried about bears, poison ivy, poison oak, black widows, ticks, and lyme disease.
How’d she put it? “Gay or straight, that sounds miserable to me.” Watch the video below, and hear her take for yourself.
