Poll: Does Anderson Cooper ‘Coming Out’ Signal Gay Acceptance by Culture?

CNN newsman, confirming his homosexuality, is latest public figure to share private detail of life.

Anderson Cooper, the CNN celebrity journalist who visited San Diego during the 2007 firestorm, on Monday confirmed what many suspected: “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” Cooper wrote columnist Andrew Sullivan. In San Diego—with openly gay politicians like mayor candidate Carl DeMaio, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and state Sen. Christine Kehoe—this isn’t exceptional news. But does it signal new acceptance by American society?

Komfort. You've tried to make obscure references arguing against the gay gene. And then you've thrown in bestiality, necrophilia, and abortion into the mix. The only person confused around here is you.

Selina, this is serious business. Legalization of inter-generational sex IS on the radical homosexual agenda. If you are a mother or grandmother this is something you have got to pay attention to.

Selina, you are avoiding the comparison that is being made. Let's try this a different way without the strawman defense please. Do you think homosexuality is genetic? Do you think pedophilia is genetic? If you answer yes to one and no to the other, will you please tell me how you made your distinction? Be careful to not make the distinction on morals, but if you do please link the moral rulebook you are using.

I won't answer your question because there is no comparison. A pedophile preys on children and somehow you unable to see the distinction. You see this as a moral issue. I think you should mind your own business. I don't even know why I bother. It's not like you try to make an honest attempt to look at things from a different point of view. You are more interested in trying to generate controversy and I'm the sucker that keeps rising to bait. I'm done with it.

Simple questions make your head fall off, Selina. I could not have asked anything easier. Maybe your genetics left you weak in the ability to give an honest answer. Or maybe you don't want to go on the record with a truth you already know. You have chickened out either way.
