For the LGBT Community, Gus
Kenworthy´s Olympics Loss Is Still a Big Win

Time Magazine, by Sean Gregory

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/18/2018 11:17:43 AM

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

Comments:
He finished Dead Last in last night´s event. He even skipped the final jump. You aren´t at the Olympics to make a political statement, but to perform your best.

His screaming mother, waving a rainbow flag, was also a nice touch. She and the boyz made quite a threesome.

Johnny Weir was the first gay skater to perform at the Olympics. He just didn´t get into the face of the viewers like Rippon is doing. Rippon is the first gay activist skater to be in the Olympics, but not the first gay skater.

Why do these gay people feel the ´compulsion´ to display their attitudes to the public and to basically shove it in our face ? It is unfathomable to me. To Reply #7, I believe it was Scott Hamilton, but he didn´t flaunt his gender bias, was a courteous gentleman, great skater, extremely likeable person, and excellent Media host. Lastly, TIME magazine sucks and belongs where you find it, in Doctor´s offices, where sick peple can read their biased, liberal garbage. Just my personal opinion.

You want to know why a backlash is coming for homosexuals? All you have to do is watch the IN YOUR FACE garbage NBC is foisting on its audience. Can anything be more disgusting than watching two bearded men kiss? Well, yes, NBC is more disgusting for making this Olympics all about the wonderfulness of abnormal people and their abnormal sexuality. And, this idiot writer is worse for trying to make those two seem normal.

No it is not a big win.

I think the first Olympic ice skater was the first gay skater. All of the previous skaters knew to just skate your best and people would enjoy your ability and pretend that everything else was cool.

#7 you forgot about Brian Boitano. He won the gold in 1988. In the link below it states that he "won the gold medal, wearing skates with American flag appliqués that are now part of the collections of the National Museum of American History." Can you imagine the insufferable Rippon or Johnny Weir doing that? Of course not. They would be wearing the rainbow flag instead.

"I think the only way to change perceptions, break down homophobia, break down barriers, is through representation."

So then, in your face. A kiss is pretty weak representation, accept that you define yourself by your sexual preference. Go for the whole enchilada, that´s representing.

Or mind your own business and respect others.

His attitude, regardless of success, is symptomatic of why the LGBT community does so poorly in America. Not content with being tolerated to live their own lives and philosophies, they scream for attention, picking fights with everyone that does not worship their choices.

He could have won Gold in every event that he entered, but he only earned the contempt of every non-activist, in America. His rudeness only shows he is unsuited for the world stage.

Yes, because an athlete´s sexual orientation is the most important thing here. The fact that your boyfriend turned in the worst performance on the slopes doesn´t matter at all. Despite what this article says, it wasn´t a BIG win.

There really is no need for NBC and Time to be making these folks out as heroes.

Just making it to the Olympics is a grand feat in itself.

Evidently, there are many who are not paying attention to how the television and cable media have taken over the march to present gays

It´s saturated all over. There are many more black people in the media.

This soft approach to make everything normal is having an effect, but the "in your face" tactics of some are really counterproductive.

Greg Louanis had tremendous athletic glory who won MANY medals in Olympic competition, and yet he never made outrageous and obnoxious displays of himself trying to get attention while coatailing others....

I don’t find Johnny Weir to be insufferable. He never snarks, just amuses. And he knows figure skating. An excellent, knowledgeable commentator. We have watched him and the formerly (when she was 12) insufferable Tara Lipinski do some amusing turns at the Olympics and at the major races like the Kentucky Derby. They are bright and funny together; never nasty.

How ignorant Time writers are. John Curry, who won the 1976 Olympic gold medal was gay. He died of Aids in 1994. When Aids first became prevalent, many skating coaches died. And the skating community mourned them. These leftists in the media as usual, have no idea what they are talking about. They are too lazy to do any investigative reporting. Also, while devoting all of their energies towards force feeding and reinforcing their SJW ideology, they count on the readers´ ignorance and when a contradictory fact does pop up, the writers suppress it doing whatever possible to keep the readers ignorant. These writers are not "reporters". They are Propagandists for the Left.

Personally, I don´t care what their sexual preferences are as long as they don´t force me to accept it and watch it. When the LGBT ´community´ lives their lives as the heterosexual community does, maybe I´ll pay attention to them. Until theen, stop looking and acting lie idiots.

An interesting article is posted directly below this, discussing how Aly Raisman is making a spectacle of herself and doesn´t understand the line that must exist between our private lives and our jobs.

At this moment, competing in the Olympics is the job of these athletes. Anything - ANYTHING - that distracts them from this should be pushed aside.

Kenworthy didn´t get the memo. If the Olympics are the most important thing to him, he shouldn´t be flaunting his private life. If his private life is the most important thing to him, he shouldn´t be at the Olympics.

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) was fined nine times for supporters´ homophobic chanting during the qualifying campaign. It has repeatedly asked fans to refrain from using the slurs. Javier Ruiz Galindo, head of the National House of Mexico for fans in Moscow, said the chant could be perceived in "many ways". "It´s not necessarily meant to insult somebody," he said.

Conservative political newcomer Ivan Duque has been elected president of Colombia. With nearly all votes counted. Mr Duque has 54% with his rival Gustavo Petro on 41.8%. The result raises questions about the future of a historic but controversial peace deal with Farc rebels. Mr Duque, who is supported by former President Alvaro Uribe, has said he will overhaul the 2016 agreement which gave the rebels places in Congress. The orthodox economist also says he will revisit crimes allegedly committed by the rebels during the brutal five-decade conflict with the government. Mr Duque is viewed as the business-friendly

Bush, the wife of former President George W.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of
