Gareth Thomas Knows It Gets Better If You’re Beefy, Masculine, And Athletic

Be on the alert: The Welsh know Americans are falling in love with Gareth Thomas, especially after his chat with Ellen DeGeneres. And for now, they seem okay with it. Who doesn’t like exporting its heroes to the rest of the world and showing everyone how awesome your natives are? But now that he’s gone and created an It Gets Better video? Well awww shucks, we’re never going to let him escape our borders.

    Well, yeah! Why let him escape now? I’d like to donate my handcuffs to the dedicated cause to make Gareth American.

    Queerty writer, your snarky headline is low even for this site’s typical trollish behavior.

    Why don’t you tell us how it gets better if you’re a dick?

    And I don’t mean that in the good way….

    It was a laughing joke over here in Wales (rumours had swirled for a decade or more) when the news broke just over a year ago BUT now Gareth is milking the ‘im gay’ headlines for all its worth….getting somewhat tedious – still,cant blame him, no doubt hes being paid handsomly by the chat shows over in the US!

    Not bad for someone who came out yes, but after their international playing career was over!

    I’d like to tap him on the back

    Never heard of this guy, but he’s sooo right. The truth does set you free.

    @OrchidIslander: I took the snarky headline as humor, and there’s nothing wrong with humor. But in a sense, it is true. Big beefy guys, straight-looking macho bears aren’t the ones typically targetted for bullying or discrimination, according to statistics and anecdotally. That’s not to say they don’t suffer from it. Anyway, good video.

    Ian Roberts is also gay…where’s his interviews???

  • Obama DID say DADT would happen on his watch... (John From England)

    @alan brickman:

    Where have you lived? Ian Roberts was EVERYWHERE when came out back in the 90’s. Google!

    Also, rugby league which Roberts played is only big in Australia and the UK. Rugby union which Thomas came form is the 3rd most watched sport in the world and Thomas was amongst the best in the world ever.

    So by your logic, all sports stars from Weir to the ice skating guy to the swimmer should ALL get the exact same attention if they come out.

    If an international movie star comes out by your logic, he should get the same attention as a national Tv star.
