NICK OF TIME
American Olympic track star Nick Symmonds won queer hearts the world over earlier this week when he dedicated his silver medal on anti-gay Russian soil to his LGBT friends back home. But that’s just one reason to love the 29-year-old middle distance runner. In fact there’s nothing not to love about Nick, we can confidently declare after spending hours trolling through his social media pages. He’s pretty much perfect, you gays.
Check out 10 reasons why Nick Symmonds is perfect and true.
1. He’s an animal lover and has a bunny named Mortimer T.R. Symmonds
2. Those eyes
3. He can rock the ‘stache if he wants to
4. His bedroom face (we’re guessing)
5. He’s a smart guy: “Coach said I could have one beer”
6. Baby got back
Hard at twerk, we see…
7. He’s a sea-man
8. This face he made while reading Fifty Shades
9. He loves halloween, he’s been a crab, panda, and a Playboy bunny
10. He looks good in and out of clothes.
In case you don’t believe us:
But he looks adorable as a panda:
See, perfect! We rest our case.
@MikeE: The flaw in Mike’s criticism is that Nick Symmonds was absolutely right: gays DO need to sweep around their own front doors before they start worrying about Russia.
Gay communities are some of the most openly bigoted places you can find. Gay porn stars refusing to sleep with black guys, gay bars refusing to hire non-security staff that isn’t lily white, gay fashion houses like Andrew Christian refusing to feature anything but white models, gay companies selling black dildoes nicknamed “the thug,” gay magazines never featuring anything but white models. I could go on and on and on.
If gays are *really* serious about ending discrimination, you don’t have to go all the way to Russia: you can start right here in America in Chelsea and in West Hollywood. All these gay campaigns against hate should only be taken seriously when there’s an equally vociferous campaign to integrate our “no blacks, no Asians” Aryan Youth worshipping communities.
Remove the plank from thine own eye before you criticize the toothpick in others’.
