Where’s Tonya Harding When You Need Her?

A gay male figure skater (but I repeat myself) is throwing a little hissy fit because VP Mike Pence will be part of the US delegation to the Winter Olympics. Mainly because… well… mainly because he’s too stupid to know anything about Mike Pence but has been told by his handlers that using his Olympic platform to make an anti-Republican political statement will win him accolades in the Democrat Media Complex. Which is exactly what happened.



  1. Link says Error 404 not found when brought up to look

  2. Isn’t Barron already taller the Mr. Pence? I swear he grew 3 inches during the Inaugural parade.

  3. “Error, Not found” sums up his self-awareness.

    Male figure skater, pairs skater, short-tracker skater, mens speed-skater, ice hocky player; ratio of tops to bottoms. Discuss…

  4. Originally, I linked it to the Google News Search for “gay skater Olympics mike pence” that generated 7,000 articles. I’ve replaced it with a link to a single article in USA Today.

  5. The link worked for me a few minutes ago, but I copied & pasted into a new browser tab (using Chrome, which may have smoothed out any errors). I got the standard Full Coverage news item page. Those that are having issues with page loading, links, redirects, etc, should try another browser and see if they can replicate the issue.

  6. First openly gay Winter Olympics athlete? What standard do they use at USA Today?

  7. “I don’t think he has a real concept of reality,” Rippon said of the vice president.

    Pot. Kettle. Black.

    He also doesn’t seem to realize that neither he nor his fellow competitors get to choose who officially represents the US government at public events. I notice he grew up and lives in Biden Country PA, so perhaps speaking mistruths is attributable to something in the water.

    “Mike Pence doesn’t stand for anything that I really believe in.”

    Yeah, well, just consider that the feeling might be mutual, twinkle blades.

  8. It’s no wonder why I find it so to relate to the gay community.

  9. I guess he thinks twirling about on ice makes him a savvy political commentator too.

  10. I don’t care about the sexual orientation of our Olympians, only that they win. When the attitude is “gay man competes in Olympics” instead of “American wins medal” I give up.

  11. Remember when Tim Tebow was told his personal beliefs had no place in sports. Good times.

  12. I didn’t realize it was possible to lose a butch-contest to Johnny Weir, but apparently I was wrong. [/sarcasm?]

  13. Is it OK if I find Race Bannon just a tad too sexy?? 😉

    PS – Someone at YouTube put together this cute video. If you are listening at work, please put on your earbuds:

  14. Would that be Fire Island?

  15. Every gay-boy immediately noticed that Dr. Quest and Race Bannon were very close… And why was Haji traveling with them?

    1960s and 70s afternoon TV cartoonage was soooo subversive and politically and culturally-transgressive from today’s perspective. YAY!! That and National Geographic Magazine. Hot guys having grand adventures in the Outdoors, and shirtless, occasionally pantsless in a hot spring!! And the DILFs…

    Ahh… Back when the World was still mysterious, dangerous, romantically-exotic and worth exploring.

  16. At least he said he wouldn’t protest anything…hopefully he’ll live up to that.

  17. And why was Haji traveling with them?

    From Wikipedia:

    Hadji is a streetwise 11-year-old Kolkata orphan who becomes the adopted son of Dr. Benton Quest and also Jonny’s best friend and adoptive brother. Rarely depicted without his bejeweled turban and Nehru jacket, he is proficient in judo, which he learned from an American Marine. The seventh son of a seventh son, Hadji seems to possess mystical powers (including snake charming, levitation, magic, and hypnotism) which may or may not be attributed to parlor trickery. The Quests meet Hadji while Dr. Quest is lecturing at Calcutta University; he saves Dr. Quest’s life (by blocking a thrown knife intended for the doctor with a basket lid) and is subsequently adopted into the Quest family. Though slightly more circumspect than Jonny, he can reliably be talked into participating in most any adventure by his adoptive brother.

    Fun fact: in the original series [The Adventures of Jonny Quest], Jonny is voiced by Tim Matheson, who turned 70 on New Year’s Eve.

  18. @6 Amazing how quickly they forget Brian Boitano, isn’t it?

  19. Amazing how quickly they forget Brian Boitano, isn’t it?

    Except that BB didn’t publicly declare his affectional orientation until 2014, well after his retirement from competition and only after he was selected to be part of the official US contingent to the Sochi Olympics (about the only time POTUS 44 gave Vlad the middle finger—by assembling a collective of LGBTQWXYZ representatives to protest antigay actions in the host country). Reportedly he had no intention of doing so until invited to participate. That was still 16 years after his former rival Brian Orser was forced to do the same via the filing of a palimony suit, long after he too had retired from competition.

    I also don’t know what the criteria is for “first openly gay” is, but presumably it has to do with those who are open while still in their competition years. (Seems Johnny Weir would still have that honor, if you ask me.)

  20. Many if not most Queer Athletes are advised early on. . .
    Keep in mind that sponsors may consider public statements before
    Making an offer.

    Not quite sure about this young lad’s intentions.

    Comment by rusty — January 19, 2018 @ 8:49 pm - January 19, 2018

  21. rusty (#20), good comment. I think the lad is trying to angle something political.

    The cynic in me adds why sell only your own abilities or self* when you can make much more more reliably selling out the public in the political arena? (When was the last time you saw a retiring Congresscritter poor?)

    * assumption here that one is not supremely talented and intelligent in a business way.

  22. Here’s the other Out Olympic Queer

    And he doesn’t have any interest in the trip to the White House

    True…and not everyone can get a sweet sponsorship deal like the aforementioned Mr Kenworthy.

    Incidentally, TIME claims that GK is the first openly gay Winter Olympian. Someone better tell Twinkle Blades’ PR people…
