HUFF POST: Neil Patrick Harris rather flippantly shrugs off the mantle of gay icon:

I’m just a guy who is married to another guy and we have kids and we live our lives I would say as “normally” as one would. But I think normal is a very subjective term, especially in the gay community. I legitimately have no interest in being a representative or an ambassador for anything except my kids.
