Posted on 07/02/2012 9:29:53 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Anderson Cooper has some news to share.
"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," the CNN anchor wrote Monday in an open letter to his longtime friend Andrew Sullivan of the Daily Beast.
The host of Anderson Cooper: 360, 45, also says that he has waited until now to announce the fact because, "As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn't matter."
Cooper, who also hosts his own syndicated talk daytime show Anderson, addressed the subject after Sullivan a British writer who is openly gay and Catholic put the question to him after a cover story in the current Entertainment Weekly focused on how gay people in the public life are currently coming out in understated and matter-of-fact manners.
"Andrew, as you know, the issue you raise is one that I've thought about for years. Even though my job puts me in the public eye, I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons. I think most people want some privacy for themselves and the people they are close to," Cooper began...

AHA!! I knew it! I knew it! I knew it!
I’m so happy he is proud of himself. We are who we screw.
Does Rachel Madcow know about this?
In other news, bears crap in the woods.
So Cooper likes it in the Pooper
Who is Anderson Cooper?
” The host of Anderson Cooper: 360, 45, also says that he has waited until now to announce the fact because, “As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn’t matter.”
Well then, in your case, you shouldn’t have revealed your private life, Mr. Poofter.
He couldn’t be more happy. That is total BS. Gays are about 1% of the population yet make-up 75% of CNN and MSNBC. Talk about trying to shove it down our throats.
The obligatory “wow, who knew?” and “I’m shocked!”
Imagine a scene on a deserted atoll.
The human race has been wiped out except for 2 survivors, a man and a woman.
The man is Anderson Cooper, the woman is Ellen DeGeneres.
NOW, people, tell us this is just as normal as heterosexuality.
Hey Cooper ... stick it up your ... oh nevermind
She should. She’s his b——.
(What? Rachel is a female? Are you sure???)
That “I’m gay, I’m proud” always seemed a bit odd if isn’t a choice. Like “I have pit hair, I’m proud”.
Yes, he's Catholic.
Yes, he poops in the woods.
Does sodomy really take so much skill as to make oneself “proud”?
If he is so proud, why did he wait until now to out himself?
If you have to proclaim you are proud, in a march, in a speech, in a festival, you are anything but proud.
Homosexual Pride? If they are so proud, why do most of them wear masks?
Isn't it amazing how many of the 1% are in the media?
If he’s proud of his lifestyle why did he wait so long to come out?
“Hey SHEP! Your up next. Come on Out!!!!!”
What shocks me is he’s only 45. He looks around 60.
I keep waiting for some Occupier to ask one of them:
You're rich, why don't you retire and let the network hire a bunch of Columbia journo grads with $200k student debts?
What is an Anderson Cooper and why should I be concerned? Just another empty headed fag.
This is news? You mean he wasn’t “out” already?
To be filed under the “I thought he came out years ago” department ...
“Holy shit!”, said almost nobody.
So what’s the ‘360’ stand for then, some acrobatic bathhouse maneuver?
I know a woman like that...she is mid to late 40's and stopped coloring her hair..got on a "natural look" kick and it grew out solid gray..made her look 20 years older. I was surprised to see it solid gray at that age. She is now dying it again and looks 100% better.
In other non news, Liberace came back and declared he is gay.
SOOOOOOO..... He is a TEA BAGGER !!!! :)
I believe “Analson” is the correct spelling.
We need a Hitler finds out video. I could care less if he declared himself a duck. Keep it to yourself Anderson, you’re sick and need help.
lol...who did he think DIDN’T know this already?
I never will get the “pride” part which seems obligatory in every homosexual’s diatribe on the issue. You don’t see heterosexual couples going around talking about how “proud” they are to be heterosexual. That in itself should tell anyone it’s deviant behavior since the point of stating one’s “pride” in the behavior is open defiance of a norm and what is acceptable: i.e. “I’m a burglar and proud of it.” “ I’m a rapist and proud of it.” Such “pride” has as its goal spitting in the face of God.
If gay people are allowed to be proud of being gay, are heteros allowed to be proud of being hetero?
Yes, he does swim in a circle.
Yes, he does have a watertight ass.

What they have ample supply of in pride they severly lack in honor.
Pride cometh before the fall.
I had an uncle who was proud to be an alcoholic. He said he was born that way. Same mindset as the homosexual Smith. I guess this mindset helped my uncle feel good about drinking himself to death.
Anderson Cooper: Self-admitted heterophobe.
If he is so proud what took him so long to come out.
