Newsflash, Everyone: Tom Daley Isn’t Gay
He’s bisexual. And yes, it does make a big difference.
Tom explicitly says in the video that he still “fancies girls,” and he never uses the word “gay,” “homosexual,” or any other synonymous word to describe his sexuality.
The fact that media outlets immediately jump to the conclusion that he’s gay not only contributes to the issue of bisexual erasure, it also misrepresents what Tom Daley said, which was exactly what he wanted to avoid by making the YouTube video in the first place.
So get your facts straight everyone. Tom made an incredibly courageous decision in coming out and he deserves our support and respect.
By that same logic he didn’t mention the word “Bi” at any moment either, your need to label him is as bad as the one you’re criticizing. What if he’s 100% gay for the person he’s with at the moment, maybe he’ll go back to girls or maybe not, if we were all as sensitive about this then I would feel offended that people thinking he’s gay is in some way disrespectful or unsupportive.
