It’s that time of year, when anonymous Oscar voters show their asses by explaining their votes to entertainment outlets.

Twitter erupted in outrage on Friday when on his Impaulsive Podcast, Logan Paul said that he was going to practice “Male only March” and attempt to “go gay” for one month. If you don’t know who Logan Paul is, I am envious of your blissful unawareness. Logan Paul first became famous on the now defunct social media platform, Vine. Full Story
