    Cute kid, too. I totally admire the dedication and hard work for so many years that is required to win at this level.

    Damn, he's fast! 48.30 seconds for the 100-yard backstroke is amazing. He could have an Olympic career for sure.

    Nice. Disregard his accomplishment and reduce him to a sex object. Way to go reinforcing the stereotype of gay men as sexual predators of the young and vulnerable so many of our detractors hold and use against us. It's why so many people believe gays shouldn't be scout leaders, youth ministers, camp counselors, etc.

    While I agree with you on a personal level, no one should be sexualized, how many High School girls/cheerleaders want to fuck the Football Quarter back? How many groupies are there for professional sports teams or rock groups?

    Sexuality is RAMPANT! If you don't think he's going to get a Gay following (and all that entails) it'll still be only 10% of the BIG deal, as in hetero-sports stars.

    Well done, Jack! This young man seems to have many qualities, and not just as an athlete. It's nice to see.

    You missed my point. I realized people sexualize all the time; however, this thread is about the kid's accomplishment, and wellwell discounted that, took the low road, and went for the groin.

    Also, the examples you gave don't hold water because the persons involved are generally peers (highschool) or possibly younger lusting for the older (groupies).

    While sexuality is RAMPANT, class is not. Sexuality doesn't necessarily need to be dragged through the mud.

    Wellwell is a 57 yo man. His sexually objectifying a high school kid is trashy.

    No reason to get your panties-all-in-a-bunch, gurl; ...just a statement of fact (& highly complimentary).

    What fact? That you're trash?

    You're trying to belittle me by using a feminine descriptor screams volumes about your maturity level as if the "I'd do 'im." comment hadn't already.

    And I doubt that kid would find the thought of sex with you complimentary.

    Point well taken. I agree. That does happen, straight or gay. A smart teen would take advantage of that imagery, like Brittney Spears did in her video in the school girl uniform back in the day.

    Even then I'd hope you'd like the music before the salacious comments.

    Michael Phelps will be retired and gone from swimming by the time this young guy qualifies for the U.S. Olympic swim team.

    As a former competitive swimmer (high school, college, Masters) and coach I can say emphatically say that the backstroke is the hardest stroke to truly master.

    Haha but you know Phelps willl never hang up the bong.

    In the morning I'm more harsh. Maybe WellWell saying I'd do him would fly better at night time haha. It's not just gay culture, guys...everyone is aware of being attracted ha. I don't want to give my approval to any entity that values sex over love. I would have respected WellWell's comment if it was about wanting to be with this dude. I understand we're on theinternet where we all look at porn so that is very on our minds. I don't want to seem like a sexdrive killer. We're all here to get off in some way. Let's just remember that getting off with love is the onyl true righteous goal we could have in that arena.

    Yo
    Michael Phelps is originally from the deeply troubled, rough, ungovernable city of Baltimore where getting stoned is a viable way to get through daily life in such a harsh urban/metropolitan environment. So it is going to be very hard for Mr. Phelps to put down the bong despite the fact that he is engaged and has traditional marriage in his future.
