Oh look, another famous person announced that they’re gay. Big deal.
This thing that I read on Yahoo called The Lookout said that “Anderson Cooper has confirmed what most people in the media world and New York already knew”. Really? So JUST people in the media and world famous New York knew. Actually, people that live in my hick state already knew it too. Seriously. I mean, look up the word OBVIOUS in the dictionary and tell me whose picture you see.
I also read this thing about The New Art of Coming Out. Really? So, there’s a specific way that you’re supposed to do it now. Anyway, part of it entailed the importance of gay ‘celebrities’ coming out of the closet to combat America’s bullying epidemic.
Call me a cynic, but having a few famous people come out of the closet is not going to stop bullying. People bully because of major issues they have or because it’s a learned behavior that is ingrained in their personality. Some people are just mean. Just because they find out that Anderson Cooper or some other ‘famous’ person is gay doesn’t mean they are going to stop doing it. Why are people so deluded?
I have this friend who was all upset because Anderson Cooper is gay now. I was like, “Ummmm, what difference does it make. Even if he was straight you still wouldn’t stand a chance with him, so yeah, whatever.”
“You don’t understand”, she said.
You’re right, I don’t. It’s somebody that you don’t even know, or will never meet (probably), so stop acting like you’re 12 years old and he’s Donny Osmond or Bobby Sherman. Seriously. Stop it.
Anyway, she’s mad at me now. I’m such an unsympathetic friend.
