Based on the sentence or two I read of some article, the reporter likely was a dumbshit. That said, if you're an Olympic athlete and don't want people to know you're gay, I'm not sure having your pic up on Grinder -- while you're in Rio during the Olympics, a setting where you're probably much more likely to be recognized -- is a great strategy.

Yeah, but I'm sure they're more comfortable being gay in Brazil, rather than in their home countries (if they're from one where being gay is illegal/looked down on, etc)

Fair point. I just meant that if you're putting up a profile on a sexual-orientation-specific dating app (and you're using your real name or you're semi-famous, even in a big fish small pond sort of way), you're kind of outing yourself. Anybody who sees your profile could presumably screen shot it, provide it to a gossip rag, send it to your country's Olympic Committee, or whatever.

Do people actually give even the slightest fuck.

Unfortunately, some people (and governments) do.

You mean the people who were in the closet who were just outed? Obviously thats a huge blow (hurr durr), and it can affect their careers, and possible shaming/punishment.

 

Do other people care? Maybe not, but they should at least know what some shitty journalist did for no other reason other than to be a  dick.

I'm talking about everyone else. I don't see how their sexuality is relevant nor how it should make them better/worse at their sport.

Like 90% of our women's handball team is openly gay and no one cares. One af the female swimmers got stopped by her male tinder match in front the national press and all her team mates, that got more coverage than anything else.

Well, he's a dick and thought it would be a fun story to do apparently - 'let's see how many gay Olympians I can lure under false pretenses' (he's straight and married with kids)

But no, we should care as long as they can swim fast/jump high/whatever the hell.





Unless they're Russian. Then it's clearly the Roids.

Maybe I'm an even bigger dick, but if he had done it to me. I would have "leaked" at photoshopped conversation with him dick pics and all. I would have ruined him for that move.

There is no way for him to disprove it.

maybe the reporter's the one in the closet?

 

not to shame anybody but i feel like this kind of move points to a subconscious construction of a pretext 'just to see'... i mean of all the 'stories' to come up with?

Shit's gotten weird between my girl and I lately. Probably a blessing really, that way we can just go our own ways.

Q.Q

For awhile there I thought you guys were getting married
post #83565 of 85808
Nah. Shit's always been rocky. I used to deal with it because she was so awesome to hang out with when things went well.

Now, we no longer have any physical aspect to our relationship, she's no longer ever sweet or playful and I'm always expected to pick up the bill now and I'm never thanked.
