Many threads on Datalounge have discussed the homophobia in professional skating so I have no problem with his decision not to discuss his orientation publicly still I think it is unfair for him to use another female skater to hide behind That will come back to haunt him.
R126, you are nuts and have very limited cognitive abilities.
and NOT from Bible school."Evan closeted way before he ever won gold. These old farts are the only ones attending the shows today and they didn't like homosexuals in 1955.[quote]Straight guys don't crush on Pamela Anderson.
Yeah everyone knows it outside the skating world as well.
You have to be a skating dork, ensconced within that bizarro world where Johnny Weir apparently stands out as particularly effeminate among a group of lithe young men in sequined unitards, for this to even be in question The level of veracity of gossip has sunk really low on Datalounge lately. Or I remember hearing five or seven years such and such is true. I am not talking about how good (as in juicy) the gossip is or is not, R22.
Add on to that, the Evangelicals and Baptists: like Scott Hamilton with his 700 Club, Tom Zakrajsek with his homos come last in Colorado rule and Skate Canada's Barb Mac Donald with her Billy Graham fund raisers and you can see where all that anti-Weir hate comes from. Evan Lysacek is not only gay, he is Richard Simmons gay, but he lowers his queeny voice and pretends to date women, which keeps the USFSA and the ISU happy.
Talk about a world desperately in need of a massive youth injection! It is alright to be gay in figure skating, (99% of male singles skaters are gay) provided you act like it is still your parents generation (1955).
I hate it when people on Datalounge lie by omission and exaggerate.
And look how defensive the poster above is about Evan attending Calvin Klein's birthday party, R125.
For christ sakes, R120 and R122, you are really trying to sway opinion by exaggerating.
Many varied famous people attended Calvin Klein's recent birthday party for his young boyfriend.
Some men seem gay in voice or appearance or manner, but are not gay.
