So he's gay, then.

R1, he specifically denies being "homosexual"

by Anonymousreply 2July 21, 2021 11:19 PM

Well I think we can all agree on being human.

Oh, God...does this mean we're going to have to add an "H" to the ridiculous acronym?

Nice try.

Bottoms! All of them bottoms

by Anonymousreply 11July 21, 2021 11:44 PM

This is like when a gay guy is asked if he's a top or a bottom and he gets all offended and refuses to answer, you know in that instant he's a bottom.

He's obviously holding out to see if he gets any lucrative contracts if he wins the gold.

Why do they play these games. Come out as SOMETHING pertaining to sexuality - human is NOT it.

R4 It's not an acronym, which is a string of initial letters said as a word--NASA, NATO, radar. It's an initialism, and a really bad one.

Oh dear.

Oh sure, you tell me he sucks cock and he has his red wings? I’m pretty sure he does NOT.

His point is that it doesn't matter.

These tears I cry aren’t tears of pain; they’re only to hide my guilt and shame. I forgive you, now I ask the same of you, while we were apart I was human too.

^Phil Oakey, what an 80s doll. I can smell the Paco Rabanne.

It's marvelous the way C-list celebrities keep finding new ways to be exhausting.

Timo, I don't know if you're allowed a say in the matter.

R16 - If I had used "initialism" no one would have known what I meant. By using "acronym" I could communicate what I meant. You knew what I meant.

And who are you to say it isn't an acronym? You don't know how to pronounce it? Drink half a bottle of tequila and bend over a toilet. You will be shouting it out before you know it.

by Anonymousreply 31July 22, 2021 2:57 AM

^Maybe so. I stand corrected. Er, not stand exactly--more like sway and bend.

by Anonymousreply 32July 22, 2021 3:12 AM

So, he's gay.

Look, I get that maybe there's no pressing need to "define" yourself. I just don't see the fear. This generation is both so fearful of labels on the one hand -- and freak out if they have one put on them that they didn't cosign, but then double down on other labels and insist that you recognize those labels as "living their truth" and you're a monster if not.

It's weird because being "gay" is so much less of a big deal generally than it previously was (note: I say that knowing that people still suffer negative consequences for being gay.

by Anonymousreply 33July 22, 2021 3:44 AM

He's brave for simply saying what he did say.

by Anonymousreply 34July 22, 2021 4:01 AM

Timo is German and he's 25 years old.
