July 2nd is an extra special gay holiday for two reasons. It’s the day we celebrate the birth of the Crystal Enchantress of the Ice Johnny Weir. July 2nd is also International Anderson Cooper Coming Out Day and we celebrate it by taking off of work to watch a GIF of the Silver Fox giggling on a loop. Last night at the University of Texas at Arlington, Anderson Cooper joked that we owe International Anderson Cooper Coming Out Day to his need for more dates.
While speaking in front of an audience of 6,000 at UT Arlington, the Silver Fox talked about coming out and said that he never hid his love of peen from family, friends and co-workers and only publicly came out so more dudes would hit on him. Is there any other reason to publicly come out? via the Star-Telegram:
Cooper said he didn’t hide his sexual orientation from his family and coworkers. “Being born gay is one of the great blessings of my life,” he said.
He joked that he came out when he decided he wanted to get asked out on more dates. Still, he said, there are some “very determined young ladies.”
Determined young ladies are still trying to get on his ass? Yeah, I know who he’s talking about. Selena Gomez, come get Taylor Swift and tell that shameless beard to stop hitting on Anderson! Some beards can’t stop and won’t stop. Clay Aiken better get some beard-repellant, because Taylor’s probably going to hit on him next.
But seriously, Anderson Cooper ain’t shit for saying he wanted more dates. That is obviously a lie. Do you know how many times I’ve stuffed the CNN tip line with date invites for him and how many times I’ve stood outside of his and his boyfriend’s firehouse with my cheeks spread while screaming, “Come and get it!” All I’ve gotten in return is a restraining order and a one-way ticket out of NYC. What am I? Chopped liver? Actually, “chopped liver” is exactly what my doctor calls my down-low parts.
