    A bit of an oxymoron, don't you think?

    There was a recent Newsweek article about this seeming paradox.

    Interesting, but they should just come out. Like who didn't know Johnny Weir was gay?

    I think the skating world is controlled by a bunch of old farts and biddies much like beauty contests and dog show. Well, maybe not dog shows. At least they're kind-hearted people. But I have heard it discussed that the skating world regime wouldn't tolerate on openly gay skater and because judging is subjective bullish*** they can eliminate people before they get to the higher rounds. That's why so much off the outcome is rigged every four years.
