I know. Huge shocker.
... and I don't know why this excites me. I mean, it's not like I'm a gay man trying to get with him, but this news truly does excite me. Anderson Cooper is probably one of, if not the most credible journalists on the scene today. He is part of the mainstream, so to speak, so for him to publicly acknowledge his long speculated homosexuality is, I think, a huge step towards helping laypeople come out of the closet.
I also know that he is not the first person to do it, by any means, but I think he is one of the more significant ones to do so. He has always avoided the topic in the past because he said he'd rather keep his personal life private, but I think this was a good move. It's just a shame he didn't do it on Pride Day. Ah, well. Here's a Pride Oreo for you, Anderson! You go, Anderson!
