Neil Patrick Harris Speaks Out

Neil Patrick Harris is the latest celeb to come out thanks to Internet rumors and speculation. I have loved Neil Patrick Harris as Doogie Howser, M.D. and I still love him as the hilarious Barney in How I Met Your Mother. I talk about this show a lot. It's totally the new Friends that not enough people are watching. Anyway, here's what Neil said:

"The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships.

"So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."

How dumb am I, I never thought he WASNT gay. I just never cared, and am perfectly happy for people to keep their personal lives to themselves.

...I agree, some people do not want to be activists, and they shouldn't be forced out for any reason. Especially if it's by someone with a dubious personal and professional agenda..

NPH wasn't in the closet. He just wasn't shouting his homosexuality from the rooftops. Some people aren't interested in being activists, they just want to be.

...and, just for the record, my sister is gay, my best-friend/first cousin is gay, I have another first cousin who is gay. My gay relatives have the longest running relationships in our family, and the most stable and enviable. My best-friend's religious-fanatic father has not spoken to her since she came out 20 years ago (at the time I was living with her, so I saw first hand the devastation and stress his actions caused her). It's a lot easier to come out now than it was then. My sister and cousins helped change the world, but it's obvious, their decision to come out really changed their lives for the better -- not that it was easy, but it was what they had to do...

over a year ago, when HIMYM first came out, his wikipedia page had the name of his partner listed (a male). i was pretty surprised, but not shocked. a friend and i were discussing it a few months later, so i went to wikipedia to show her, and any reference to his sexual orientation was gone.

...maybe film roles are limited for political reasons. We still base our notion of "couple" on a mandatory heterosexual "norm." We are still arguing the meaning of "marriage" and who can "participate," yet just last week it was widely reported that there are more alternative relationships in existence than there are traditional. At one point, even married people apparently could not really "be together" -- Rob and Laura Petrie had single beds side-by-side. Doogie shoulda come out -- again, Perez shouldn't have outted him. But c'mon, Doogie's a celebrity. What he does for a living is a choice and not JUST another job. It's a job you enter knowing full well the public will take an interest in all aspects of your life. Sorry, but that's the nature of the beast. People of all walks need to come out because we need to start counting heads and making political decisions that reflect our diverse population...

It's so sad how coming out will limit your career. I love this one favorite super hot super intelligent CNN anchorman who I bet wouldn't be where he is if he were publicly outed. I love him too (forgot him on my previous list)!!

Perez Hilton's site is useless for any real dirt. He's too busy cowtowing to those who make the good gossip.
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
man i was flagged... oh well I said Perez is stupid, tor is so correct about his penis, and he is so not "friends" with the celebs he claims he is friends with. They are using him and he is using them... its a mutual parisitic relationship.
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
tor, couldnt have said it better myself... he needs to out other men to make him feel better for being so shitty. He is such a loser- all his posts are pro paris and lindsay bc he is supposedly "friends" with them... right....

I love Perez Hilton. He has the best site for gossip. Oh, yeah, I knew NPH was gay ever since I saw him on a tv interview.

Years ago I had a really HOT dream about NPH. Oh well! Good for him for coming out and for quashing the rumors. Being in the closet only leads to situations like the train wreck that is Ted Haggard's life right now.

Neil Patrick Harris never pretended to be not gay. When he was doing Cabaret here in NYC, I would see him out with a nice looking man at a few local watering holes. Nice nice man.
