Neil Patrick Harris On Being Gay

Doogie Howser is my homeboy. How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris went on Howard Stern and talked about everything. And I mean everything. Apparently, he’s known he liked boys since he was 13, is a switch hitter (meaning he tops and bottoms), doesn’t believe in open relationships (boring!), and thinks Perez Hilton is a complete douche for spending so much time on trying to out him last year. Ok, he didn’t say “complete douche” but it’s Perez Hilton, douchery is implied.

Harris was on Stern’s Sirius radio show and told Howard that he knew he was definitely gay when he wasn’t into Ben Stiller’s wife Christine Taylor’s body. He was dating her when he was a teenager.

“She’s like the coolest, nicest chick ever. She’s an absolute catch, and I thought if I’m not going to feel the super sparks with her, than it probably means that I’m gay,” he said. Harris told Stern that he’d been with between 12-15 women before he was definite on the queer. You tell Stern EVERYTHING. I’m surprised there’s not a rectal exam.

Stern asked Harris if he’d ever confronted Perez Hilton for outing him, and Harris was kinda/sorta not willing to answer it. I hope this queen got evil and sent him a Jenny Craig package or something.

“Well it’s a tricky subject because people decide they want to be out in the open whether in a public forum or in their family at their own time. But Perez is from a generation that feels like (being out) is a non-issue. It’s offensive to him when people don’t declare that, because in his world, it’s always been a part of who he is,” he said.

Doogie also told Howard that he’s “versatile.” Harris has been in a relationship with actor David Burtka for four years, and apparently they like to switch it up. For my straight readers, that means you take and receive, depending on mood and hemorrhoid status. Ok, I didn’t just say that. Alright, I totally did but I’m back in Boston and I think I have that jet lag thing and I couldn’t sleep well last night and it might be affecting my tact.
