Hey guys, Chelsea here! For those of you who missed my introductory post last week, I’m The Sword’s new summer intern, and I’ll be popping up here throughout the next few months with my unique perspective on gay news, gay culture, and gay porn. And today’s news has certainly got people talking. In case you didn’t hear, Anderson Cooper came out of the closet as a homosexual man today!
What does Chelsea think about Anderson Cooper being gay? Not gonna lie, I was surprised! Also, I was a little saddened by the news. Why are all the hotties always gay!? LOL. But seriously, first and foremost, I am of the belief system that what you do behind closed doors is your own business. As long as Anderson Cooper and his boyfriend’s gay butt sex isn’t hurting anyone (except Anderson’s butt, because he’s the bottom), it shouldn’t bother you. Period! Judge not lest ye be judged, right bitches?
But to be perfectly honest, I am a little disappointed in The Silver Fox of cable news. Being gay is one thing, but being a gay journalist is a whole other ball game. I am a journalism student right now, so let me share with you why this is important, from the perspective of a (future) journalist.
I thought Anderson Cooper was supposed to be a journalist first and a gay man second, not the other way around. Whatever happened to just “who, what, where, when, why, and how”? I want my newsmen to tell me the straight (no pun intended! LOL) facts, not who they are f***ing! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my gays, but whatever happened to keeping the news free of an agenda and free of gay bias? Isn’t Anderson Cooper coming out of the closet as a gay just more of the lamestream media’s attempt to push the gay lifestyle down our throats (and not in a good way)? I worry about what this says about the future of journalism, and I worry about how Americans will feel about watching an openly gay man reporting serious news stories. Now the next time I see Anderson Cooper reporting from the middle of a war zone in Syria, all I’m going to be able to think about is him sucking on his boyfriend’s peen!
Anderson Cooper coming out as a gay man undermines the news business and sexualizes journalism in a way that is unacceptable to me and many other Americans. It’s just inappropriate! What if I told you that I masturbated in the movie theater and was rubbing my pussy through my panties while watching Magic Mike last week? Probably would make you think twice about the objectivity of my review, wouldn’t it? Well, that’s basically what Anderson Cooper has done by coming out of the closet as gay.
Anderson Cooper makes gays look duplicitous and shady, and I feel bad for all the good gay journalists (and all the good gays in any profession) who aren’t liars and who don’t put their own sexual desires above their integrity. For all the millions of people who thought that Anderson Cooper was just a trustworthy heterosexual news anchor without any secrets, this was a major blow (and not in a god way! LOL). How are average Americans supposed to trust gay men now, knowing that they are capable of keeping secrets like this for so long? How are average Americans supposed to trust journalists now, knowing that they are capable of keeping secrets like this for so long? How are average Americans supposed to trust anyone ever again? Anderson Cooper has done a disservice to the gay community and to the craft of journalism.
Do you guys remember the game show that Anderson Cooper hosted, “The Mole”? In it, a dozen or so contestants worked together to add money to a pot that only one of them collected at the end. Among the contestants was one person who producers preselected to be “the mole.” Throughout each episode, the mole sabotaged the group’s efforts to complete challenges, earn money, and trust one another, and at the end of the season, the mole’s identity was ultimately revealed. Well, it turns out we now know that there has been a gay mole working in cable news, and he has sabotaged the American public’s trust in journalism and the gay community! Anderson Cooper, shame on you.
And that’s what Chelsea thinks. Thanks, guys.
