    I know y'all are fucking around, and obviously a lot of figure skaters are clearly gay, but I think in reality figure skating is a lot like ballet: It seems kind of gay but you actually have to be a bad ass to do it well.

    While I agree that some professions had / have harder effects via stigmas (actors need to be able to believable in various roles - so that list makes sense) figure skating has always related to homosexual connection

    in boitano's case -- his profession is more akin to that of Elton John, Liberace, Siegfried & Roy, KD lang -- everyone just knows, wouldn't affect his livelihood.

    I know, it's an incredibly skilled and athletic endeavor. Getting the height and rotation for a quadruple anything and then the balance for landing it is hardcore.

    They're probably the only white dudes capable of dunking.

    One of the figure skaters in the Olympics right now is a guy from here (Salt Lake) and apparently he's one of the absolute best in the world right now. I hope he does well. Name's Nathan Chen.

    Here he is looking gay, but after seeing some interviews with him, I really don't think he is.

    Kurt Browning had a relatively masculine skating style, and I think he's married (to a woman) with kids.

    Of course, he never won an Olympic medal, probably because the heterosexual stuff messed up his jumps.

    Our team here just won bronze in the Team Figure Skating event. The kissing couple are husband and wife.

    The world is crying out for an Onion article on the first openly heterosexual figure skating team.

    Pretty courageous to display affection like that among a figure skating crowd.

    And in this day and Social Justice age, isn't gender supposed to be a social construct? With no biological difference between men and women?

    If that is true, then why does it matter that he is a man, who likes sodomizing other men, and he's awarded a gold metal?

    And why are men and women in desperate divisions? Shouldn't feminists be supporting intergender boxing matches?

    I think gay people always made good athletes. Nobody just came out back then. It wouldnt surprise me to hear if some of the best athletes turned out to be gay in real life.

    If Sugar Ray Robinson, Babe Ruth, Dan Gable, Jim Thorpe were all gay would you really be shocked?

    'Bout fuckin' time a gay man broke down the barriers, in the brutal, testosterone fueled world, that is male figure skating.
