Nah, nice try. You were suggesting Stephen Fry was a paedophile, don't try to get out of it now.
I'm not trying to 'get out' of anything, merely trying to restate facts. The facts are and remain that Fry, a middle aged man, met his current partner and began working with him when he was 13. If that makes him a paedophile to you, thats an interesting theory. I personally would hesitate to go that far (thanks for taking the initiative) without further evidence. I do find him to be a morally bankrupt creep. But then as I've restated time and time again I'd feel the same about anyone who left their long term partner for someone they'd been working with in a professional capacity since that partner was 13. Likewise I'm skeptical of middle aged forum members who publicly letch over people like Daley the moment they hit 16.

The majority are teenage girls , you only have to look at keek and twitter .

I don't get why people get so uptight if he is gay as its not like anybody on this thread has a chance with him gay or straight .

He is a 19 year old with two female best friends and he has just brought two kittens . He has gone on a world tour with his his female bestie . He comes across as camp in interviews .

It just gets annoying. He himself says that he is straight, so that should be it for everyone else. If true or not, people should just accept his answer. It is pretty embarrassing, that people have been guessing his sexuality from when he was just 16-17.

I think it's achingly obvious he's gay (and no, I don't fancy him). But he says he's not and so that's that I'm afraid as far as the 'official' stance goes.

That said, the fact remains it would not surprise me if at some future point he 'came out', however 'public' or low-profile it may occur. The one thing I think that is worth bearing in mind is that 'realising' one's self is gay, and 'accepting' it, are two different matters and that both manifest themselves in multiple forms and at differing times. In my case, for an anecdotal example, I never denied to myself that I was gay, although I certainly went through a period struggling to accept it, and wishing it wasn't so. And during that period, if anyone had straight out asked me, I would have denied it, due to a whole mixture of feelings that it isn't really possible to articulate in a few words.

To re-iterate and simplify, if Tom says he isn't gay then that's that, although people are entitled to retain their personal view otherwise, so long as they don't advocate pressing him further on the issue.

Perfectly put. You cannot tell someone they are gay, straight or bisexual. Only they know. Tom says he is straight and I believe him. It's not that there is proof that he's lying.

It shouldn't matter anyway

Lets be real the vast majority of names bandied around as being 'gay' are wrong, you're bound to get one right occasionally. Congratulations!

It's not a pi$$ing contest to see who can be right most of the time you know. Posters on here seem to think every famous man is gay even if they're dating a woman or married to a woman. You got one right yippee for you. It still doesn't take away from the fact that most names banded around on the in the closet thread are not gay.

It was so obvious Tom Daley was gay. The PC brigade would argue Alan Carr was straight if he'd never come out.

Why do people care what a total stranger's sexuality is so much? There are so many of these "is X gay?" threads and I just don't understand the appeal of such discussions.

Yeah, weird a lot of people seem to get off on the idea that they have some sort of power of knowing this information and there's also a sort of indication that him being gay is some how something that is a negative trait. I think being gay is something people want to treat as a flaw but I watched his show earlier, the guy jumped from one of the highest bungee jumps in the World, he's got a hell of a strong gut.

He's out there doing dare devil stunts while these people are on forums chatting crap about him, I'd rather be him any day.

It's actually embarrassing to see what I assume to be grown adults doing this. 'LOLZ I got one right tee hee' type thing.

As you say pretty much every man seems to be gay according to some. The reasons given for many of these assumptions (could be as simple as 2 men daring to look at each other') would even be laughed out of the playground.

Eventually they'll find someone who actually is gay. Law of averages, no more no less.

I know right? They get one right and are boasting like school kids. As I said before, no one KNEW Tom Daleys sexuality so saying they did was stupid. Now we do know. Congratulations. Point still stands that most of the suggestions and reasons they have are laughable and if they are trying to use this ONE occasion as proof of their incredible homosexual spotting prowess, they are even more delusional than I thought

Don't bring up facts. These sad members of DS are happy that one person they speculated about actually turned out to be gay for once. Let them have their moment in the sun. I actually worry for them, do they spend all their time on the internet desperately trying to convince everyone that every famous male in existence is gay and then pass out from joy the few times they are right? Embarrassing isn't it?

Tom Daley is gay so it means I can say every famous man is gay even though all evidence suggests otherwise. Elton John was married so I can say every married man is gay. Logic isn't their strong suit is it? I hope they are teenagers, but I have a feeling they are middle aged men

You are at least consistent in your approach. I don't understand why you get involved in these discussions as you clearly don't believe it is a matter for debate. Whenever it is suggested that someone might possibly be gay, you leap in to discredit the idea. You seem to have a real issue with the idea that people might be gay. You got it wrong with Daley, so your track record is rather poor. You are in no position to attack others for their views.

Why would this mythical "PC brigade" argue that? And it never occurred to me that Tom was gay before he came out.

It's a weird phenomenon that's for sure, and pretty cringe-worthy to read at times.

Some people actually do the gay community a disservice imo (esp in that other thread) through pretty basic stereotyping and lazy assumption.

Late you serious? My track record is poor because of ONE person. My track record is poor because unlike you I think only people themselves can say what their sexuality is. You really need to get a life. Pointing out how stupid people's reasons for thinking someone is gay are is having a problem with gay people? Here it is again. No logical counter argument so plays the homophobia card? How old are you? Quite worrying really

You and others who are obsessed with wanting every male celebrity to be gay have been wrong a billion times, but now because of Tom Daley you think you are some kind of experts? Ok then. Not even going to bother with any of you. Astonishing ignorance.

Go back to your fantasies now

To be fair, it's rarely "suggested" on here. Usually outright declared as an absolute by people who act as if they're in a position to actually know when really they're just inadequates stuck here all day conjecturing about the sexuality of people they will never meet.

Tom Daley is as gay as they come
Do I score any Brownie points on this thread of dyspeptic homophobes if I admit I don't know how gays come?

Yep. Mind you, I didn't pay him that much attention, and I don't tend to think about whether celebrities might be gay or not anyway!
