A truly annoying piece on HuffPo takes it upon itself to apologize for Madonna and GLAAD's "flamboyant" statement against the Boy Scouts. As I wrote on the site and to the author on Twitter, I don't believe activists get anywhere by coddling, wringing our hands and expressing disappointment. I'm offended by the concept of approaching a sworn enemy (as the Scouts' decision-makers are) with an apology and I think the entire GLAAD appearance, while pointed, was really very funny. Madonna's ridiculous get-up tweaked the Scouts and was a great way to mock just how silly their policy really is.

Worse than silly, it's discriminatory, and it's a policy they've had ample opportunity to reconsider in recent decades. Their clear-eyed decision to keep going with it (for now) makes the Boy Scouts absolutely equal to a restricted country club, so they should be mocked and shamed, not the activist-minded Madonna and GLAAD, who are, after all, on the right side of history.

ANYway, I'm sure the author was well-intentioned, but I really think his piece gives aid and succor to an enemy. And until they change their policy, they are an enemy.

As an antidote, check out the cute backstage video above, in which the face of the battle vs. the Scouts—lesbian mom Jennifer Tyrrell—humbly thanks Madonna for "doing that," to which Madonna says, "My pleasure."

Here is Jennifer from the carpet that evening, before her emotional speech from the stage:

Peter Harry BrantGuillotine-agers

Painfully annoying Brant Brother Peter Jr. jokes about killing the prez on Twitter, the friend he was tweeting with defends their actions ("People seriously need to take a joke") and then Peter finally apologizes under duress.

Stephanie+Seymour+Peter+Brant+Jr+Stephanie+hoq8N2SlCEDlHis daddy is publishing mogul Peter Brant (maybe one of those bazillionaires who wasted an obscene amount of money in trying to unseat the president in favor of people who think rape is all in the semantics?) and his mommy is supermodel Stephanie Seymour.

For good measure, Peter also joked about women's rights, which is odd since he's such a girl himself. Recall that he is also the one who was spotted all but making out with his mom.
