Johnny is a brilliantly gifted skater. He is his own being, whatever might be.

There must be better things to engage our energy than discussing Johnny's sexual orientation which is no one else's business other than Johnny himself. He doesn't owe anyone an answer.

Well said, DJs. For the life of me, I can't see how it makes a whit of difference, althgough if he *is* gay, it might be better for him to control the situation himself rather than waiting for someone to come along and "out" him.

Well, now we know what that "being" is. As one commentator recently noted: "Three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir certainly isn't the answer. As the sport struggles after its unbridled success in the mid-'90s, skating doesn't need a man, bare-chested, in a skirt and high heels, posing for magazine pictures as its image-maker." He was, of course, entirely free to put himself on display at the meat market like this, but that doesn't help solve skating's image problems.
