Anderson Cooper Comes Out of the Closet

July 2, 2012

In one of the most unsurprising announcements ever,  Anderson Cooper has finally admitted that he is gay.

Anderson Cooper came out in a letter to Andrew Sullivan who was given permission by Cooper to publish it.

I love Anderson Cooper because he giggles his ass off on national news and is one of the few big time anchors who acts like a regular guy even though he has a rather esteemed pedigree (his mom is Gloria Vanderbilt).

It’s no surprise that Anderson Cooper is gay, what is surprising is that he was able to keep it out of the news for as long as he did. Having been pulled into my fathers closet I would never out anyone or want them to come out  if they weren’t comfortable, I do think that public figures and celebrities can do a lot of good by coming out.

Welcome out of the closet, Anderson!

    Well said, I think while this was no surprise to most of us, it may be too some, and it is inherently good to be truthful to who you are. This is news because he is a celebrity, and that we talk about being out now is progress. Someday it won’t be news, and that will be even more progress.

      Well said, Brahm. It will be a good day when this isn’t news.

    Should NEWS People, like judges, recluse themselves when the story involves them personally? Should they be required to give a disclaimer? Or in the case of Anderson Cooper, should the viewer know  or expect a certain slant of the news because of his sexual preference?  I’m  happy to officially hear that Cooper is out of the closet, because it supports my suspicions in the way he slanted  many of the stories he covered. The bigger NEWS flash would be if  Cooper is proud enough to tell us if he is the dominant or submissive one or if he likes them young. Could it be that his sexual confusion is caused by the fact Hormone-Mimics in plastic water bottles act as Functional Estrogens? Is Cooper actually a product of drinking too much bottled water?

      Who cares why he’s gay? It’s irrelevant. Does he have a slant, probably, they all do. But he’s a decent guy and I prefer watching him to a lot of the blowhards that are all over the airwaves.

    I thought the letter he wrote showed such class and humanity.   He’s got a lot of heart, that Anderson.   I’ve always been a fan.
