Last night, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir went on the Joy Behar Show and discussed negative commentary surrounding his alleged sexual orientation.

When he heard some people said he was too gay for figure skating, he had probably the best possible reaction: “It’s figure skating“. Ha!

Seriously though, after the Games, some Canadian reporters said he should have a gender test. Johnny wisely said he didn’t care the reporters said that about him, he cared more for the kids like him coming up the figure skating/athletic ranks. He would hope parents wouldn’t repress their children for fear of negative media backlash.
