Wait, what?

http://outsports.com/olympicsblog/2010/02/18/is-weirs-gay-coyness-fueling-homophobia/

So let me get this, er... straight: Weir should come out, because a) it's totally impossible he's a bisexual or even a straight feminine man, and because b) somehow if he's gay, GLAAD should be involved in rebutting the insults getting hurled at him (which implies that they wouldn't be if he's not, despite that they actually already are).

Uh, because the insults hurled at actual gay men and the insults hurled at feminine men and/or male bottoms who happen not to be gay are, um, somehow not the same damn thing?

As a female person who really, really likes feminine men, I'm not sure whether my response to this is *headtilt* or *headdesk*...

Here's what I see in the article-- anxiety because someone might be resisting homogenization. Whatever Weir's sexuality actually is, he's queer in my book, because queer includes any gender outlaw (who might get beat up on the playground for it). But that bothers the mainstream homo culture, because he's not giving us a label for him, not coming out and into the fold. He's not giving us an easy category. That makes him too queer for the mainstream homo press to handle.

*agree*

And that's the reason I don't like these people who want queerness to be about gay sex, exclusively. It's like... No, that's not what it really is, I don't think.
