      Make up your mind Queerty. Are they “boys” or “men”?

      I get it Tom Daley is the new queer hunk (or twink depending on perspective)du jour but could we please just stop speculating on his dating and sexual history I mean its really kinda tacky and disrespectful.

      I just cringe every time someone says he came out as bisexual. He never used that word, and just because he said he still “fancies” girls doesn’t make him bisexual. Those “girls” are quite obviously just fag hags. The boy is as gay as the day is long.

      This is so funny. I feel like I’m reading teen beat. Really some sophisticated adult reporting here. Of coarse allot of gay men have allot in common with teenage girls so not much surprise.

      Oh my god, the thought of Liam Payne getting fucked at all is enough to maintain my interest in Daley…at least for just this one article. If Liam turned out to be the gay one in One Direction that would be AH-MAZING. He’s the hottest one.

      Why is Queerty so obsessed with this guy? Seriously, it’s an obsession. Queerty can’t let a single day go by without gushing over him. Previously it was just annoying but now it’s downright creepy.

      I enjoy this site as a source for LGBT news, but the creepiness displayed here (along with the constant stream of “articles” about underwear and porn) are why I never link to this site on my blog, Twitter, or Facebook, because it’s just too embarrassing.

      Read lyrics to South Pacific – “Some enchanted evening”. Mr TD seems to have had this in mind. Surely Lloyd Webber or Sondheim are already reaching for their pens for the opera. A whole evening of theatrical speedos. Of course the venue would have to have washable upholstery

      Jaymi has said he fancies Tom, but I really don’t think so.

      How embarrassing – Waterstones made him show up for his book-signing in a speedo. Let’s hope they gave him a dressing gown or something to wear after making his entrance.

      Guess he’ll have to do another book now with the gay stuff in it.

      I get the fantasy that many of us have that all the gorgeous “straight” hunks we come across really would like to sleep with us but for the most part, it’s just a fantasy. It’s a wonder that any of us can ever have straight friends when there is so much perpetuation in gay media that if a man hangs out with a gay man he’s automatically gay. I wonder how many friendships this costs us.

      @Stache1: WOW, I am glad it is not just who thought this article (and a few others I have read recently) was immature and childish. Seems to me we gays would like to show ourselves in a mature manner (and less childish and perverted) now that so much attention has been drawn toward us in our fight for equality. I prefer to be taken seriously and not sleezy!

      This is like Radar Online’s coverage of Kim Kardashian. Let Tom be young. We don’t need to follow his every move nor speculate about his romantic past. Really, who cares? He has a nice body and an average face. He’s talented. Now, can we move on cuz this Dustin Lance Black thing ain’t gonna last…..everybody knows it. When it falls apart, we won’t need minute by minute coverage of that either. Dustin….call me, you know how I love a good bottom.

      @shellfire: Yes, this is shallow, frivolous and teen girlish, but so what? Straight people don’t hate gays and discriminate against us because of our behavior, but because of their prejudice and ignorance. No gay person should ever change his/her behavior to try to be acceptable to straight people. We are all just right the way we are. “Equality” does not mean becoming someone else; it means being accepted as you are.

      Interesting, he came out as “Bisexual” and yet with all the attention, and how easy it is in such a hetro supportive society this 19 year old has never found a woman to date even though it would be SO much easier to meet and date one.

      Yeah, really bi isn’t he? lol

      (sounding like the voicemail greeting on the animated show _Archer_) What? What?!

      So these boys came before Dustin Lance Black? Oh were I to be a fly on the wall!

      Incidentally, I know this was TOO obvious a chance to make a pun. There *must* be someone before me who’s already done this bit. But there are too many comments now for me to take the time to read through to find out, so I just posted it anyway! Yes, I admit it: No time to read the comments, but just enough time to read Queerty’s articles and stop to comment on them myself. Cheers!

      @Mike: He never used the word gay to describe himself either, but you’re not ticking anyone off for calling him gay.

      Why?

      Because you think he’s gay and you want to call him gay.

      You may not want me to call you a hypocrite. But I will. You’re a hypocrite Mike.

      @GeriHew: Considering that girl’s still been seen out and about with him even the night of the day he “came out”, i’d say it’s most likely they were friends, not lovers.

      @Niall: Whatever. She’s a girl and she is clearly his friend. And they have gone out on dates to clubs and theater shows together, holding hands.

      And if Tom fancies guys and girls I personally don’t have a problem with that. Because I do too.

      @Niall: If a guy goes out on the town holding a girl’s hand you are going to get people thinking he and she are “a couple”.

      If he then goes on YouTube to announce that he is in a relationship with another guy but that “Obviously” he still fancies girls – then you are going to get some people calling him bisexual and other people calling him gay.

      The people who are calling him bisexual are being reasonably open-minded; the ones who are calling him gay are not.

      C’mon guys, get with it. All you have to do is go back on Tom’s Keek account/postings and you’ll see all his old boyfriends and he never tries to hide it. Plus his swim pal Jack Laugher and a number of them are out and not woosing around about it. I hope he doesn’t think he’s going to be the next Rock Hudson via DLB. Puhleeeze!
