The Silver Fox Came Out

Yay! It’s about damn time. We love you to pieces and we think you being open about being a homosexual could do a lot of good in a world where gay kids are killing themselves and we’re discriminated against daily. A public figure coming out is always a good thing.

In an letter to Andrew Sullivan for The Daily Beast, beloved television journalist and talk show host Anderson Cooper ended years of speculation by confirming he’s gay. And he wrote very eloquently about it:

The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.

I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.

Since my early days as a reporter, I have worked hard to accurately and fairly portray gay and lesbian people in the media – and to fairly and accurately portray those who for whatever reason disapprove of them. It is not part of my job to push an agenda, but rather to be relentlessly honest in everything I see, say and do. I’ve never wanted to be any kind of reporter other than a good one, and I do not desire to promote any cause other than the truth.

He’s always been a class act. Sullivan had asked the silver fox to weigh in on Entertainment Weekly’s recent look at celebrities coming out in an “off-handed” way without a giant media furor. Cooper gave permission for his reply to be posted this morning.

  1. I personally don’t believe someone’s sexual orientation is anyone’s business, so when Anderson Copper came out again ( I say again since anyone with gaydar already knew he was gay) I believe he actually did the gay community at large a dis-service. Look, if he was so proud why did it take him so long to come out? It’s not like the man needed the money, I suspect mama Vanderbucks is leaving him her whole estate. So, all in all he really doesn’t have anything to be proud of. In fact all he has really done was remind america that gay people hide who they are to forward their professional life. Sad, Very sad. Then to add fuel to his faggot fire he is further insulting everyone at large in the gay community by saying ” Hey look, my money has bought me a young toy.” Grow Up Anderson, put pull your boy toys cock out of your ass and look around you at what you can really do for the GBLTQ society as a whole and do it for the right reasons.

  2. My homosexuality is a natural occurrence just like having arms and legs. It is not an accomplishment, so nothing to be proud of, just thankful for.

    Anderson Copper has always been gay and that fact has been very obvious from the start of his career. Just because he’s a celebrity to some his so called “coming out” doesn’t offer anything of value to anything.

    I wish gays would quit attempting to worm their way into acceptance with stupid, superficial garbage, but instead learn to respect themselves and others in order to gain the respect of others who are confused about what being gay is. Sadly there is just as much if not more prejudice and hate among gay people as there is against them by straight people and that just makes gays look like hypocrites when they claim they are for acceptance, inclusion, equal rights etc.
