. . . and Brian Boitano came out of the closet

I know, a gay figure skater.  We’re all stunned.

That’s enough snark.  Good on him.  He’s part of the Sochi Olympics delegation and given Russia’s current virulent anti-gay climate, I’m proud he will be there.

“I am many things: a son, a brother, and uncle, a friend, an athlete, a cook, an author, and being gay is just one part of who I am,” Boitano said in a statement.

    It’s discrimination that we don’t have male synchronized swimming.

    Elton John should be commended for showing up in Russia to give them a concert and a piece of his mind. It’s a small group of people around the world that won’t change.

    In my view it’s not a Macho / Snatcho world, so I’m having a hard time imagining the denial the Russian Politburo must be swimming in.

    Oh, that’s right…it’s all some kind of capitalist conspiracy – rainbow flag-pins will dent hammer-and-sickle flag-pin sales.
    Kain’t have that!

    You guys are clueless, as the former head of the KGB Putin was well familiar with the West’s penchant for using social controversy to divide a populace they wished to see regime change in or to began their social destabilization. He fought this all his career and knows all about it.

    I’m sure Putin doesn’t give whack if you engage in wide eyed bungholery between two males or some kind of Sapphic relation between 2 women. What he does care about is the fallout that comes with allowing the controversy to take hold and destabilize his country.

    He won’t allow that. So gays, you are being USED by our own governments and intelligence agencies to fulfill their nefarious plans overseas…just ask Putin, he will tell you directly.

    Putin rides a Ritz Cracker over the steppes – bare-chested!

    A Manly man, by Bob. And docile too.
