On one gay website people had count down counters until he turned 18!!
If you're talking about fmf, they started the picture posting and leching when he turned 16, not 18.

And of course he's gay.

At the risk of stirring up the hornet's nest, I kind of see BomoLad's point..

Everyone completely ignored the speculation about Tom having a girlfriend, and jumped on Bomo...now maybe part of that was the way that Bomo can be a little..well..blunt, but actually, perhaps he has a bit of a point?

If a thread was started asking if he was heterosexual, I doubt there'd be the same strength behind the who cares answers..

I hope he reads this and sues you.

He's a self-hating gay?

That isn't how lawsuits work.

Being a well-mannered, caring and effeminate young man does not mean you're gay, it's perfectly clear that you can be heterosexual and be those things too.

Why 18? The legal age of consent is 16 for all sexualities.
Sorry, at typo on my part!!

I meant to say 16.

It was on Fitlads Forum, shortly before he turned 16 people were saying they couldn't wait for him to be legal and he could be talked about openly without it being wrong....

Count down counters, the lot

Tom Daley gay? Probably. Think he may not know it himself yet.

Oh like you know straight men are gay after six pints I suppose. It doesn't really do anything for acceptance when you accuse straight people of hiding their homosexuality.
I beg your pardon.

Just where have I accused anyone of 'hiding their sexuality'???? I've done nothing of the sort- even though I believe people have the right to do so if they so wish. I am hoping that you were replying to the wrong poster, here, because I was actually agreeing with you- by saying that I know some camp men (re: your mention of Duncan Norvelle) who may come across as 'camp' but are not gay. I am certainly not the 'type' that reckons I know someone's sexuality after six pints. As I said before, I simply don't give a damn. In fact, I believe that sexuality can be far more complex than 'gay' or 'straight'. We don't all fit into neat little boxes.

You gave a wink, as to insinuate something:

Absolutely. I know a few myself.
That to me is saying you know them intimately, therefore lying about being camp straight men.

If not, perhaps you'd like to review how you use the smiles on here.

Is Tom Daley gay? I think so every time I see him in interviews. He's got the qualities.
Does it merit a discussion? No. Would we discuss Steven Gerrard's heterosexuality? It really doesn't matter.

What absolute tosh and totally off the mark.

The wink was actually intended as an ironic statement which clearly went beyond you in your eagerness to nitpick.

Perhaps you'd like to review how you interpret other people's posts and jump in with your own inaccurate inferences. You made something quite different out of what I actually said- the rest of which you chose to ignore. I mix with people from all walks and know some camp men who are gay and some who are not and that really is all.

I'll say it one more time. I don't actually give a damn whether Tom Daley is straight or gay. He seems like a well grounded, inspirational, talented young man. I hope he does himself and his late dad proud at the Olympics and will enjoy watching him perform.

Can't say I can recall any previous criticism of my use of smilies after 7 years on DS, either, so don't really think a review is necessary right now but thanks all the same.

Dude, I think you totally read something into DoryDaryl's post that wasn't there.

At least, I didn't read it the way you did..

No digging, just a genuine explanation/ clarification. There really is no hidden agenda or track-covering going on. If you believe otherwise, then nowt I say is going to change it.

He's stunningly cute and fit, bit too young for me but that six pack ...... Phwooar!!. Seriously though, I don't really see what difference it makes if he is gay or straight. The main thing is that he is good at what he does! Anyone who can jump off a diving board impresses me, I can't even jump in from the side!! Lol.
