Thank you for this wonderful and informative article, Jeffry. I actually do the opposite of what James was saying, due to my extremely homophobic mother. Growing up, every single male athlete, in any sport like ice skating, ballet, etc just HAD to be gay, in her opinion. So I trained myself not to assume. Quite honestly, I didn’t care either way, I just enjoyed watching them because they were phenomenal. Adam Rippon is just that, phenomenal in so many ways. I love to watch his performances and read his tweets especially. He has been such a breath of fresh air, in my humble opinion.

I think, therefore, I write. /Posts may contain affiliate links.
