Not NEWS..

Why do homosexuals have to “COME OUT”

Heterosexual don’t “GO IN” , do they

Why is it only our business if its a gay person

somali girl @ 07/02/2012 at 7:31 pm

disgusting faggots need to stay in the closet. Deviant lifestyle we don’t need to know about. Hang all homosexuals.

Were you surprised to hear that Anderson Cooper is gay? Vote at Nationwidevotes.com

@somali girl:

Go back to Somalia and die you filthy pirate!

Who cares if he is gay?? Does it really matter anymore? Why is it news when people have to come out? Why can’t people just be happy with who they are.. gay or straight.. it doesn’t matter anymore. Everyone should be able to love whoever they want to and not have to hide. Get over it people… no need to hate because of race, sexual preference or physical appearance!!!!

@ME: Completely agree.

I have always admired Anderson Cooper and I always will. His sexual orientation doesn’t matter to me.

Good on him, America is very conservative in these things. Lots of European countries are way more progressive with Gay and Lesbian matters. I like him a lot, thumbs up AC!

BlahBlahBlahBlahBlah gay, gay, gay, gay, gay sick of all this crap about who’s gay, who’s not gay, who’s might be gay, who’s homophobe, who’s not, so many more important things in this world to think about. That’s being brave? What a joke.

He came out again!?!?!?!?!

now when will he disclose that he works for the cia?

@miapocca:

Because equality still does not exist! Or have you not been paying attention to the regressive actions taken against gays in various states? Marriage, adoption, visitation rights, etc., etc. still aren’t a reality for many.

@Josh: Don’t be racist .no need to make fun of the situation of a country ,you’re problem with a person not with a whole country

no one is actually surprised right?? ( although i wanted to marry him =/ )

@Helen:

First of all it isn’t racist because “somali” is not a “race” of people.

Perhaps if you lived in the Twin Cities you would grow to hate Somali people as much as I do. Almost HALF of all Somali refugees in the U.S. live in the Twin Cities and what happens when they escape the crime filled cesspool of Somalia? THEY COME HERE AND COMMIT CRIMES!

Google how much crimes Somalis commit here in Minnesota if you don’t believe me. There is a 40% chance “somali girl” lives here and commits crimes as well. They are on the news here all the time for the crimes they commit. murder, robbery, gangs, guns, prostitution…you name it!

We are nice enough to let them escape their cesspool and live and that is how they return the favor!

You can also look up the words “homophobic harassment during gay pride” on youtube if you want to see a big group of Somali brats follow a guy around for 2 minutes and harass him and call him names.

They DESERVE to be deported back to their cesspool country where they can commit crimes on their own turf because that is all they are good at.

If gay marriage is ok, why not make polygamy, incest, or pedophilia, OK?

And all of aforementioned in the name of ‘LOVE’ will justify them all?

Do the “ends” justify the “means” at any cost?

Are gays really being honest with themselves and others in “coming out of the closet”? Why the need for gay “pride” in the first place decades ago?

Perhaps someone can explain why they want to shame others for their hate or homophobia when they themselves needed to advertise and promote their own “pride” well before anyone knew about gay pride?

ONE LAST POINT/QUESTION.
Doesn’t the medical community recommend that you, “Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom.”?

Yet, now there are some in the medical community that now say it’s OK to “Sleep with the waste that gets flushed down in the toilet?” and that it’s possible to live a perfectly normal life.
