You could knock me over with a feather.

Anderson, we all knew.
 
2012-07-02 01:33:15 PM  
Good one, Subby! +1

Slaves2Darkness: Ummm...okay. Why is this news? I mean really Anderson Coopers sexual orientation never occurred to me before today. Why would it matter?


Did you read his letter?
How come no one says, "why did Celebrity X mention his wife/girlfriend in that interview? Why does it matter?"

lackadaisicalfreakshow: Bears poop in woods, Pope wears funny hat, news at 11.


Pretty much my attempted submission, with water wet and Duke sucking.

Anderson, we knew even before people speculated. Worst. Closeting. Ever.

good for him

Who cares?

A person's sexual preference should be none of our business.
 
2012-07-02 01:36:45 PM  

thenewmissus: I am not sure why people feel the need to share their sexual preference


So are you saying you don't know the "sexual preference" of the majority of your friends and co-workers? What about the lion's share of celebrities who regularly discuss opposite sex spouses or partners?

So when Brad and Angelina hold hands in public and talk about their children in interviews are you upset that they've discussed their "sexual preference" despite it being "none of our business"?

xynix: I knew Anderson was gay back then.. I know this because as we sat down to eat and chat he noticed my tattoos and asked me to take my shirt off so he could see the rest. If I were gay I probably would bone Anderson.. Like him, I also have prematurely graying hair. Alas.. I'm straight.


Ya shoulda bone him anyway. Buttholes don't have gender. think of Britney and F*ck for Old Glory. No worse than hitting up a grandma after a night of drinkin'.

ManRay: Sticky Hands: "Please, drive me to Atlanta": The not so secret phrase for the gayest gay that two men can gay.

Wait. What? I say "Please, drive me to Atlanta" all the time...



I'll bet you do. Nudge nudge

Norman: Is Anderson Cooper a...goer...eh? Know what I mean? Know what I mean? Nudge nudge. Nudge nudge. Know what I mean? Say no more...know what I mean?

Him: I beg your pardon?

Norman: Anderson Cooper...does he, er, does he 'go' - eh? eh? eh? Know what I mean, know what I mean? Nudge nudge. Say no more.

Him: Well, he sometimes goes, yes.

Norman: I bet he does. I bet he does. I bet he does. Know what I mean? Nudge nudge.

Him: I'm sorry, I don't quite follow you.

Norman: Follow me. Follow me. I like that. That's good. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat, eh?

babysealclubber: mattador: Subby must have listened to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and heard Mo Rocca make the same joke.

I've listened to that "comedy" show, and I'm betting it was the other way around.


That Mo Rocca traveled forward in time, read the Fark headline, then went back to last week and made the joke on NPR?

Seriously, we should have one.


That would be awesome.

This is your selling point?
 
2012-07-02 01:44:12 PM  
This is great. I thought he's never get around to mentioning it. His silence on this while covering all the young gay suicides in the past year was making him look a bit odd.

Now maybe the occasional conservatives he has on his show will stop slinging thinly-veiled insults about his 'lifestyle' during interviews. He's defused that particular gothca talking point.

Mo Rocca made this joke last week? Even before Cooper came out? That's not cool. And doubly not cool for subby to steal it.
Is Mo Rocca out?

ontariolightning: Cooper was laughing hysterically at some guy going #2 in his pants on a plane one time.. the guy has ulcerative colitis and heres that farking asshole anderson cooper laughing at him with his super annoying girly laugh

i hate him


'Some guy', eh?

Did you have to clean up the plane yourself, or did the flight attendants do it? Then again, it was biowaste, and you normally need special handling to cover that.

Tell us more!

WalMartian: Next up: Daniel Tosh?

/my bet is on bi


I'm gonna go with straight. He just makes the gay/questionable comments just for shock value and to keep people guessing?

/Plus, he is from Flordia.

I thought Jodie Foster was out.

I've always thought Ryan Braun and Aaron Rogers were dating.
 
2012-07-02 01:52:25 PM  

ManRay: thenewmissus: Good for him.

I am not sure why people feel the need to share their sexual preference. To me, it should only be discussed if we are talking about dating or getting to know each other.

/seriously, good for him


Well said.

I the only time I am interested in someone's sexual preference is when I am trying to sleep with them or they are trying to sleep with me. other than that, it is one of the least interesting parts of their personality.

I hope more people come out like this without fear of their career being in jeopardy.



thedomandjaneshow.itmblog.com

Why would anyone fear that? Some people have made very good money on that show, both contestants and hosts.

Though in fairness Trebek did just have a heart attack didn't he?

Ok, I see your point.

To be fair, AC isn't making a face because a woman is about to kiss him.

It's because KATHY GRIFFIN is about to kiss him...

Kathy Griffin, Professional Beard


Ive got to agree...if I was sober and she was coming at me like that Id probably have the same look as well. After some alcohol, maybe Id let her continue...

He's from Florida. If he was gay, he'd be in better shape.

She is, barely. She thanked her partner at an awards show once.

I agree. Not gay, just has no boundaries, like Sasha Cohen.
 
2012-07-02 01:53:48 PM  
Good for you, Andy! I mean, almost everyone already knew, but it's good to see someone I actually respect come out in such a way.

FTFA: I love, and I am loved.

Indeed. That's really what we all want for ourselves.

diaphoresis: Never liked AC, but now that he has 'come out', I like him less. Not for being gay, but because he just became a bigger attention whore.

So now CNN has a homosexual agenda?

WTF is a homosexual agenda anyhow?

jmsvrsn: Nobody went for the "cooper" "pooper" rhyme. I am so proud of you people. You have really matured


I was fully expecting this, and very glad to be disappointed. I hate it when people try to be funny by picking the low hanging fruit.

I thought that was the standard though, since Matt Bomer did the same thing and every news source on the planet ran "Matt Bomer comes out" stories.

DubyaHater: Personally, I don't care. He is extremely talented, a great reporter and I grew up watching him (from his Channel One days). Why are people so interested in his sexual orientation?


They aren't. At least, the people who matter.

No, he made a crack about "Individual Mandate" being something a single guy did by himself on a Saturday night, and there was some discussion around the phrase man-date.

So kids killing themselves is of no concern to you?
 
2012-07-02 02:05:06 PM  

JackieRabbit: Does anyone really care anymore?


Yes. Many, many people still oppose gay rights. They have large followings and radio shows and get interviewed on cable news. Every time a respected celebrity or journalist like Anderson Cooper comes out, the narrative the bigots try to advance (teh homosexuals are depraved 'OTHERS'--sinners who are out to get our children) is damaged just a little bit more.

It matters because there is a massive amount of legislation going on about this right now. In the civil rights era of the 1960s, one could tell the affected population by skin color. People could openly see discrimination and the affected population. It's much harder to do that here. People have to announce it in some way - action, affiliation, public display, whatever. You can't be silent and unseen when the you need to get 50.1% of the population on your side for a vote.

1982: I wish those f*****s would keep it to themselves.
2012: Who cares about sexual preferences? It's none of our business!

Just once, I would love for someone, anywhere on the internet, say "who cares? It's none of our business!" in response to a heterosexual celebrity making a comment confirming their heterosexuality. (aka, "my wife loved my latest movie", or "I enjoyed filming that scene with my co-star because she's so hot", etc). But that never happens, because people understand that we're social beings by nature, and we enjoy talking about our lives with others. It's only when someone mentions the dreaded gay that people suddenly get very concerned with what is and is not "our business".
 
2012-07-02 02:13:00 PM

Why, so he still has hope of a future between them?
