If you think Tom Daley are gay, probably you have to reset the gaydar

T om Daley isn’t gay. However the Olympic scuba diving bronze medallist and presenter of celebrity Speedo tv show Splash! a€“ not too long ago voted “World’s Sexiest guy” from the audience of gay mag mindset a€“ does not thinking if you feel he is. Final week-end he told the Sunday Mirror: “i believe its funny when people state i am gay … we chuckle it well. I am not. But even in the event I happened to be, i’dn’t feel uncomfortable.

Inadvertently, they reinforces straight-and-narrow and progressively obsolete ideas regarding what boys should and mayn’t become a€“ as long as they cannot conform to that, they “must” feel homosexual

Perhaps, for the sake of argument, despite just what he really states Daley “really” is gay, or bisexual. Continue Reading “If you think Tom Daley are gay, probably you have to reset the gaydar”
