A lot of you are going to have a hard time swallowing this one, but apparently Anderson Cooper has been gay this whole time. “But he hid it so well!” I know, I know. You’re not the only one who sat around making oil paintings of a silver haired knight satisfying the pleasure mounds of maidens of old. So here’s the great deceiver admitting his secret, and his rationale for doing so, to Andrew Sullivan:
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.
I can’t help but wonder what made Andersoon Cooper choose today of all days to come out of the closet. If only there was some sort of clue to point me in the right direction. Eh, I’m sure he has his reasons. On that note, if you’re curious as to why this post is loaded with shirtless pics of Shemar Moore at the beach, there’s a very simple explanation for that: Space Jesus. (Suck it, Ridley Scott.)
