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.
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.
