Mikey, that supposed teenage Minnesota hockey player, whose popular blog has become a nationwide forum for queer and questioning teens, has been exposed not as a young male teen, but as a 40-year-old man (who might be using a Manhunt profile that describes himself as “a ‘hung’ 6-foot, 195-pound 30-year-old”).
It all unraveled when “Mikey” began an online relationship with a 23-year-old, and the pictures he claimed were of himself were found to belong to other persons on Minnesota high school hockey teams. Mikey still claims his original teenage identity is true, but the only way to break off this online relationship was to lie about who he was.
On the plus side, there’s no evidence Mikey used a fake teenage identity to lure minors into sexually predatory situations.
His blog is now offline.
