Queerty is better as a member
Daley is impossibly cute. Devastatingly beautiful.
I hope Daley doesn’t expect DLB to be faithful. Otherwise, he’s setting himself up for disappointment.
@Merv: you don’t KNOW that for a fact so why post such remarks. Tom may well be the person that Dustin wants to settle down with and I wish them both well.
I love his voice.
@Merv: That had its 15 minutes of gay jealousy time. Now it is boring.
loves the attention- he hasn’t been seen on line in a while, so he had to bust our the underwear….Beckham, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L Jackson , Rod Laver and the Duke of Cambridge were all there, too- none of them flet the need to record themselves dressing and post it- totally tacky….whoops- I forgot, It’s against gay law to criticize Daley- he is our Lord God King and Saviour- no negative opinions are allowed or DLB/TD mafia stalk and hound you from the internet!
Good for them and congratulations to them both. That said I’ve had enough of the coverage of them. Done, done and done. Are there no other gay celebrity couples that you can cover? Why not coverage of Michael Sam and Vito Cammisano at Vito’s sister’s wedding? Is the Daly/Black publicist paying you guys? For goodness’s sake.
He is cute like a Bel A*i model. I want to see MORE of him.
enjoy it while it lasts- his dad, mom and brother were/are all over weight- the minute he stops diving, the weight will be a huge struggle for him- his face tends to get a little puffy even now, his coaches are always on him to drop weight for competition (he lost about 20 opre Olympics- which he’s put all back on) Probably the reason DL talked him out of retiring- knows he’ll get fat without his 4 hours a day training.
@hotboyvh81: Or he could eat healthier. There’s no one who’s ever gained weight from eating healthily and exercising regularly and moderately. Tom probably gets three Big Macs and then goes to train for four hours. There’s always something you can do about your weight. Tom is still very young and he probably wants to eat all he can like regular youngsters, but even if he quits diving he can still maintain a healthy weight by stopping to eat from fast food restaurants on a regular basis which is something I can tell he loves.
@Dxley: You can’t always fight genes!
Wow, hotboyvb81’s dislike of Tom Daley sure does run deep – always on here posting negative comments about him at every possible opportunity. He quotes (apparent) facts about him that only an avid fan (or stalker) would know, yet then chooses to use those facts to belittle Tom (and his partner) all the time.
“loves the attention- he hasn’t been seen on line in a while,…”
As I’m sure you’re well aware, Tom recently attended the funeral of his partner’s mother and is now in China, hence the lack of internet presence. But, how does hotboyvb81 know Tom hasn’t been seen online in a while? Has he been trawling Twitter, Instagram and the rest of the internet for Tweets, Photos and articles about Tom? Why would hotboyvb81 do that if he hates him so much (as hotboyvb81 has stated before here on Queerty)?
“Beckham, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L Jackson , Rod Laver and the Duke of Cambridge were all there, too- none of them flet the need to record themselves dressing and post it”
That’s such a laughable comment – the idea that, because a 75 year old Rod Laver or a member of the Royal Family didn’t make such a video, then Tom doing so must be tacky!! [although, if we're really lucky, there is one member of the Royal Family - Harry - who might just make such a video (we can but pray!)]
So, hotboyvb81 thought the video was tacky – I wonder if he would have thought it tacky if (for example) Chris Mears posted such a video, or does he only find it tacky because of his obsessive hatred for Tom?
Hotboyvb81 may have a right to voice his opinion, but I really can’t understand why he goes to all the trouble of clicking on and reading articles about Tom, then takes the time to post bitchy comments that have nothing to do with the article – the idea that Tom could be considered in anyway to be fat (“his face tends to get a little puffy even now”) is plainly ridiculous! Oh, and (contrary to what hotboyvb81 predicted) DLB didn’t dump Tom when he turned 20, so why does he think DLB would dump Tom if he got fat? But, what really confuses me is why hotboyvb81 spends so much time studying photos of, and reading articles about, Tom so intently that he knows all about his change in weight, when he hates him so much? Seems to be, in my opinion, odd behaviour indeed. Or, maybe I’m odd as, if I vehemently hate someone, I simply tend not to follow their Tweets, read articles about them, etc., etc.
“You can’t always fight genes!”
Surely hotboyvb81 can recognise the fact that not everyone in the same family has the same genes? Has Tom ever been fat? However, for sure, I’m just glad I haven’t got hotboyvb81’s genes!
“no negative opinions are allowed or DLB/TD mafia stalk and hound you from the
People are free to have (and post) negative opinions, just as people are free to challenge/counter those opinions. Unfortunately, there are some who do not seem to like having their opinions questioned – it seems they feel that they should be able to say what they like without redress from anyone. They stalk and hound (troll) DLB/TD all over the internet posting negative comments about them, and then cry foul when others choose to question their behaviour.
@Billy Budd: We all do Billy Budd we all do….unfortunately i don’t think he’ll date any of us (even if he was single) nor will he release a sex tape any time soon. It’s a shame really.
Oh, Cort- I was getting worried- not the same without you following/stalking me all over the net, making sure I don’t have an opinion. Don’t leave me in suspense like that again!!!!
oh- I didn’t read you post- just saw your name and did mine- stop wasting your and everyone else’s time admonishing me- I don’t care/don’t read- spend your time more prodcutively- surfing the net making sure everyone loves/worships Tom and Dustin- they DESPERATELY need your services!!!
“…making sure everyone loves/worships Tom and Dustin- they DESPERATELY need your services!!!”
I think they’re doing just fine without my help!!!…I think hotboyvb81 will find that people like him are (thankfully) in the minority, both specifically and more generally. All I’m doing is highlighting and providing balance to his, how shall I put this, “questionable” facts and viewpoint regarding Tom (and his partner).
“Oh, Cort- I was getting worried…”
Glad I didn’t disappoint.
“…not the same without you following/stalking me all over the net…”
Would it be too childish of me to say >takes one to know one<? (re: TD)
Because of you, I get sick to my stomach everytime I see Tom’s name! I only mildly disliked him before, but thanks to your stalking- I can’t stand the guy! If you read the above posts- it’s running 2-1 against him- people are sick of him and it’s mainly because of all the outrage from people like you if they say anything negative about him! Your entire existence- here and on other sites, is about chasing down Tom critics- you created your screen alias- CW/Cort to chide me/Doug- who used Cort as avatar/etc, and run us off various sites. The DLB/Tom mafia is FAR more rabid then anything any of us have ever said about the boy. I loathe and despise you with every fiber of my being!!!!
“Because of you, I get sick to my stomach everytime I see Tom’s name!…”
I hope hotboyvb81 can see the irony in that sentence, because he still manages to repeatedly overcome that sick feeling to read (and comment on) all the Tom Daley articles here on Queerty and elsewhere!
“If you read the above posts- it’s running 2-1 against him- people are sick of him”
Oh, I didn’t realise we were talking about the Queerty community (and, in particular, hotboyvb81) when we were discussing the popularity of Tom and DLB? I’m not sure that the comments section of Queerty articles is a statistical representation of the global feeling towards Tom, although I may be wrong. For the record, I do think Queerty does go a little overboard with the number of articles about Tom, but it certainly hasn’t made me sick of him; if it did, then I’d just stop reading the articles.
Since hotboyvb81 has chosen to attack me rather than my comments, I think it is only fair that I defend myself – I will not let him portray me as the bad person in all this. Therefore, I would just like to state that hotboyvb81 and Doug are the same person, there is no “us”; he even admitted that elsewhere here on Queerty [May 5, 2014 at 11:27 am: "...I may be hotboy and dougmc..." - http://www.queerty.com/tom-daley-and-dustin-lance-black-adorably-walk-first-red-carpet-together-20140502#comments ]
“…me/Doug- who used Cort as avatar/etc…”
As far as I am aware, hotboyvb81/Doug only used the Cort avatar twice: on two Twitter accounts, both as Doug; one suspended; the other (presumably, replacement) account mysteriously disappeared after I mentioned the name Cort Woodard in a comment about hotboyvb81 here on Queerty (without revealing the significance of it), after he repeatedly disputed the facts I presented in my comments.
For both accounts, he was not only using the avatar and posting photos of Cort (a rather good-looking male model) in a manner that gave the rather misleading impression that they were of him (like everything else, I suspect hotboyvb81 will dispute this fact too).
“The DLB/Tom mafia is FAR more rabid then anything any of us have ever said about the boy.”
Oh, I think some of the things you’ve written about Tom (and his partner) have been pretty (extremely?) bad – which is why I reported you to Twitter, and they suspended your 3 accounts.
P.S When I saw Tom diving at the London Acquatics Centre a few months ago, he looked >far< from being fat or overweight (for a diver!) :P
kind of like you using Cort’s name and pic on some websites….at least I used my real name and am not hiding behind an alias designed purely to hound people…I was commenting on Tom- you came here/created a persona simply to go after me and that’s all you do here- again- I merely dislike Tom- mainly becuse of you- while I loathe and despise you with every fiber of my being!!!!!
“at least I used my real name and am not hiding behind an alias designed purely to hound people”
Again, I hate to point out the irony of that sentence, given the fact that hotboyvb81 operated 3 alias Twitter accounts that he used to hound Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black. He might have used his real (first) name for one of those accounts, but he was still pretending to be a 19yr-old male model, which he is not. I am not pretending to be Cort, nor am I pretending that his picture is me.
Need I point out the fact that I knew nothing about hotboyvb81 until he chose to Tweet me out of the blue and unsolicited (from one of his alias accounts), and ended up telling me that Tom and DLB were “media whores”! As I’ve stated before, it seems that hotboyvb81 already (more than mildly) disliked Tom way before he was even aware of my existence…and, it was his trolling behaviour then that led me to take umbrage towards him in the first place.
I apologise if hotboyvb81 feels I am hounding him, but I comment here on Queerty to present an opposing view to his…BUT, only when necessary – in order to present the facts as they are, not as he portrays them. Indeed, I believe my first post on Queerty was to correct a lamentable terminological inexactitude that hotboyvb81 wrote about DLB.
I’m now done arguing the toss with him!; I’ve presented the facts as I see them based on the evidence), so it’s time to let others decide who’s the bad guy in all this. But, don’t worry, if I read an article and I disagree with something hotboyvb81 writes, then I will (if required) comment with a counter-argument…and, I do hope hotboyvb81 will stop playing the victim card whenever I (and others) may disagree with what he has written.
I tweeted you- interseting- I’ve never directly tweeted anyone unknown about Tom- during that first month I tweeted a few people who knew Tom- so, you just admitted you are associatted with him- may even be him for all I know…I stopped following/tweeting about Tom after a month or so- you’ve been hounding me for 7 months- more reason to indicate you are associated with him in some way- who else would care so much, Lance- right???? Please, I hope you are done- in every since of the phrase!
‘…I comment here on Queerty to present an opposing view to his…BUT, only when necessary …’ You also assumed the id of Cort on JustUsBoys- I’m no longer a member there, but I stop by from time to time to look at pics- I’ve seen you’ve become quite the poster there as CortWfan….so, I’m not the only one with multiple identies and accounts. The writing style does make me think this is Black.
In reply to hotboyvb81:
“…I’ve never directly tweeted anyone unknown about Tom…”
Lamentable terminological inexactitude! For the record, are you accusing me of lying? Do you want me to show you that first Twitter conversation with me? [do you really think that I would make claims that I could not back up with evidence? I'm surprised you haven't realised that by now!!!]
“..during that first month I tweeted a few people who knew Tom…”
Indeed, you did – would you like me to detail some of the particularly vulgar Tweets you sent to his friends, family, colleagues?
“…on JustUsBoys- I’m no longer a member there…”; “…but I stop by from time to time to look at pics-…”
Lamentable terminological inexactitude! Do you think I am stupid? You actively comment on JUB; indeed, your last post on the Tom Daley thread was on July 4th [as of right now, under your current username, you have 638 posts on JUB; I have 47]. Am I allowed to tell people your username, since you gave mine?
“…Tom- so, you just admitted you are associatted with him- may even be him for all I know…”; “…The writing style does make me think this is Black.”
Incorrect! Would you like me to provide proof to Queerty that I am not who you say I am? AND, it’s rather insulting of you (towards Dustin Lance Black) to suggest I am him at this time, given the fact that both his mother and a close friend died recently!; don’t you think that Mr. Black has other things to do right now?…like, I don’t know, grieving!!…ARSCHLOCH! (go look it up!)
I would like to see the tweet I sent you…what the hell, I’ve been suicidal for the past 2 years- maybe that or future posts from you will give me the strength to actually go through with it! Life generally sucks- and you’ve taken what little deversion/pleasure I’ve had out of it- not speaking of Daley, posting on anything in general. Frankly- starting to wish all of us were dead!
you’ve won- I’m done, I’ll never post on any site/any subject again- all joy in life gone, hopefully, I won’t have to endure the boredom too long!
I seriously and sincerely hope that you will seek (and get) the professional help that I feel you need…in order to lift you from the dark place that you have clearly been in for such a long time now.
I’ve been in therapy off and on for 5 years and on Zoloft for 3…just when it seems better, there’s always someone to come along and remind me what a worthless piece of shit I am- well, congrats, Mission accomplished- good bye!
“After living together for more than three months (an eternity for most gay men)”
– Excuse me. That’s quite offensive. What, all gay people are incapable of proper relationships? No.
@CelticPred: You’re right, it’s not funny. It’s become a trite, overused and boring stereotype. My husband and I have lived together for almost 16 yrs. We have many friends who’ve surpassed the decade mark living together with their signifigants. The constant portrayal of gay men as perpetually single just adds to the stereotypes that all of us are just prediators unable to settle down. It also messes with a lot of our heads because it makes we, that are a part of a long term couple. feel on the fringe of things because of our choice.
