    A gay figure skater? Would that be a career-breaker?

    The next shocker will be a church organist coming out publicly as gay.

    Redundant. What would be shocking is if he were masculine.

    What does it matter if he's masculine or feminine? Coming out is a decision you make yourself to show the world you've accepted who you are and are proud of it. Whether everyone already had assumptions about you doesn't matter.

    they should just give up on the charade of mixed pairs figure skating and skip right to "men's pairs" it would be amazing.

    I'm really curious about how tall he is. He looks like a giant next to his skating partner.

    Also, he once took a blow to the nose early on during a program at a competition and had to do the entire thing with blood dripping down his face and tears filling up his eyes. That's dedication, and that's also pretty bad ass...you know for figure skating. icon_lol.gif
