“His coming out will help normalize queer people, I hope. But in my humble opinion, his sexual orientation is an insignificant fact. It should only be of interest to someone who’s involved romantically with him.”
“Anderson Cooper is successful, charming and engaging. He’s good at his job. So he’s improving the image of the LGBT community. He’s sending a great message to people. And he’s serving as a good role model for others. Overall, his coming out advances the cause of LGBT rights.”
“None whatsoever. It’s a non-story. What people do at home is no one else’s business, outside. His sexuality doesn’t faze me in the least. As long as he’s happy and can find love, it’s cool by me.”
“I’’ve known he’s gay forever. I think his coming out is just an attempt to get more viewers for his daytime TV talk show. His ratings are plummeting. The show is pretty bad. I won’t watch it. Any impact of his coming out will be to improve the show’s ratings.”
