Will Anderson Cooper Tell The World Whether He Was Bullied For Being Gay?

Anderson Cooper and his network, like much of the mainstream media, have been responsibly covering the gay teen suicide epidemic for days now. The Coop is even hosting a special town hall special on Friday about the problem. But as Anderson interviews other celebrities and bullying victims, all I can wonder is: How come Anderson isn't telling us his personal story?

Anderson Cooper: Tyler Clementi Story ‘Sickening’

6a00d8341c730253ef0133f4be1384970b-800wi

Anderson Cooper has been all over cyber-bullying this week.

First he took on Andrew Shirvell and his boss, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox. Then, last night, he spent some time discussing the disturbing story of Tyler Clementi's suicide, sparked by the fact that his Rutgers University roommate used the internet to broadcast him hooking up with another man.

Cooper finds the entire situation "sickening." And that's putting it nicely. Dr. Phil, meanwhile, appeared to discuss what may have been going through Clementi's head as the story unfolded.

"This wasn't someone that just said, 'This is a gay classmate of mine,'" explained the doctor.
"This is someone that took a video of someone in an intimate act.
Doesn't matter whether it was a gay sex act, a straight — it doesn't
matter. I mean, that would be a horrible experience for anyone. And –
and to do that can be really devastating to a person psychologically."

Watch: Rep. Louie Gohmert Assaults Anderson Cooper with ‘Terror Baby’ Nonsense

Terror-babies

Texas state Rep. Debbie Riddle and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) are convinced that foreign women are coming to the U.S. to have babies in order to get them citizenship, so the babies can then be trained as terrorists against the U.S. Neither have any solid evidence, but that doesn't stop them from being very, very convinced, and Anderson Cooper bears the brunt of their wingnuttery.
