    I don't want to sound like a prejudiced asshole but I really don't see what kind of barrier he is breaking. It's a very feminine sport to begin with.

    That depends. Did he get a medal or maybe a necklace for it?

    Was there anyone in the world that didn't know that Brian Boitano was gay? There were people who were shocked to find out that Liberace and Elton John were gay all along.

    Kind of weird that this is a story. Was their some big conspiracy by the judges to shut out gay athletes or something? Otherwise whatever.

    I doubt there were a bunch of people who doubted a gay dude could also be athletic.

    Fucking rednecks sitting around with their dip and a Budweiser like "The bible said thou shalt not lie with a man, homosexuality is a sin. Plus there is no way some :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: is landing a triple axle, triple toe, that's for real men."

    Yeah you're right. Sam Smith misquoted Ian McKellan who had said no gay man had won the best actor category. Dustin Lance Black also won for writing the film Milk, Alan Ball for writing American Beauty, etc.
