YouTuber Charged With False Report In Alleged Hate Crime Attack

Calum Mcswiggan, who runs a youtube channel for “LGBT+ Lifestyle”, claimed a few days ago via an instagram post that he was the victim of a brutal, possibly homophobia fueled attack.

But the police are telling a different story.

…the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Mr. McSwiggan had no visible injuries and that it could not substantiate his account. The sheriff’s department said he had been taken into custody after deputies saw him vandalizing a car, and provided a booking photo in which no facial injuries could be seen…[he] was later seen hitting himself with the handle and receiver of a pay phone at the jail and was taken to a hospital…

Mcswiggan claims on his facebook page that he did not lie, he WAS attacked.

I have spent my whole adult life campaigning for LGBT+ equality and did not take this attack lightly. I can not say for 100% that this was because I was gay but I can’t think of any other justification for this random attack…Many people are trying to discredit my story but …[j]ust because there were no visible marks on my face does not mean I was not attacked. Being accused of being a liar and being called a disgrace to the LGBT+ community, a community I’ve dedicated my life to, is more painful than any hate crime could ever be.

He has since been charged with “a misdemeanor count of false report of a criminal offense”.

FGAA Will Try To Ride 50 Miles And Not Finish

Eric Hites, the begging biker who had to end his “Fat Guy Across America” ride due to heat, attempted yesterday to ride 50 miles – despite heat index predictions of over 100 degrees. He even claimed he intended to sell plasma at the halfway point of his ride saying he had “no choice at the moment” because “that drive from Dallas wasn’t cheap”. He decided not to go through with selling his plasma after his enabler army begged him not to, but the ride still ended in a predictable manner.

So, I headed back home. By that time my water had gotten pretty darn hot, but I had no way to buy the cold stuff so I had to make due [sic]…Apparently the heat overtook me and a passerby called 911 on me…Next thing I know I’m wobbling down the road and the Police put an end to my ride and yanked me from my ride and tossed me in the ambulance. I was pretty overheated and dehydrated and not very coherent. They took me to the hospital pushed fluids and ran tests…they fixed me up gave me my marching papers and said go home, rest and also rest tomorrow.

The convenient emergency happened about 30 miles in on his ill-conceived stunt ride, and gives him a 36 hour breather to get pity donations and come up with another reason why he can’t do any of the things he claimed he’d be doing for 30 days.

Ben Is Also Going Across America In Case You Forgot


Ben Davis, doing life, is yet another guy who is going across America. For the past four or so months he has been walking across the country because why not. But now he is out of money and needs you to pay for the last 700 miles.

I almost made it, but as it turns out here nearly 2,400 miles in, I’ve come up just short on funds allocated for the walk. If you’d like to chip in a couple bottles of Gatorade or some trail mix or whatever you can, I’ve made it pretty simple; just click the link in my profile bio here on Instagram.

People have been predicting for months that he would eventually start donation begging, so nobody is really surprised. But Caitlyn Boyle has “found what he has done really inspiring” which is like, the seal of approval on what’s inspiring on instagram. So clearly he deserves your money for Panera meals.

Really though, I’m on the fence about whether to side eye this since he IS getting farther than ole FGAA did in a whole year. I guess I’m just not understanding what is so inspiring about this that it deserves ‘donations’.

Cecily Kellogg Wants You To Know Her 10 Year Old Daughter Came Out

CecilyK, the “former” blogger who has been inexplicably overlooked for Parent Of The Year awards, has announced that her 10 year old daughter “came out at Pride“.

…my role as an ally changed in a big way at this year’s Pride parade, when my daughter said, “Mom,” and then took a deep breath, looked me deep in the eyes and said, “I know what I am now. I’m pansexual.”

Cecily says she asked her 10 year old “queer daughter” why she “thinks it’s important to be public about it, and she said, “Kids need to know it’s OK. Also, I give no fucks.”” The article continues with paragraphs of hard to believe conversations Cecily evidently had with her daughter’s friends about their sexuality, and concludes with Cecily practically salivating at the thought of all the victimjacking she can now do over LGBTQ issues.

Fat Guy Across America Has Retreated Back To Indiana “For 30 Days”

Eric Hites, the Moby Dick of fail whales, announced on his facebook page that he and his albino smurfette friend are now back home in Indiana to regroup. In an endless video featuring his neckbeard and more excuses than a post-Ashley Madison marriage counseling session, Eric blathers about his latest big plan.

We’re basically doing a 30 day bootcamp…I’m going to be working out at the gym AND riding every day. We’re gonna be workin’ on my diet, we’re gonna be workin’ with the medical, we’re gonna be workin’ with the dental, we’re gonna be workin’ on the RV, everything we can get done in the 30 days, we’re gonna get done.

He implies that everyone around him told him to go home and get his RV fixed, his teeth fixed, and see a doctor – presumably so science can study why a man can eat all the “right things” and allegedly bike for hours every day for a year and somehow manage to not lose like a grillion lbs – and then start the “second half” of his “journey”. He also says his goal is to get his “first 50 mile day” and it will be “documented with somebody riding with me”.

He then starts with his vaguepleas for donations; he is “trying to figure out funding” because “funds are rough” right now. He says he is “trying to find ways to raise money without constantly having to ask”. His solutions include “sponsorship possibilities”, selling FGAA branded products, and selling links from his bike chains. He then declares that both he and smurfette “are going to work”. But even with jobs they need to get sponsors because his trip “costs between $600-700 per week”.

If you want to feel like you’re in Ben Stein’s economics class then head on over and watch his video. I did, and I have to wonder if Dr. Phil is somewhere rolling his eyes.
