Johnny Weir Would’ve Picked Heterosexual If He Had A Choice

Guess what stupid celebrity meme I long ago tired of, and so did you? The whole "Johnny Weir came out in his book" headline, which the figure skater himself says is preposterous, because he was never in, even though he never acknowledged it. And if he talks about how he doesn't celebrate being BORN WHITE AND MALE one more time, Jesus, I'm going to triple Salchow up in here. We get it, Johnny. You don't want to be an activist. Now go back to shopping and being capital-F fabulous, OKTHXBI.

Johnny Knoxville Will Make You His Black Swan Bitch

No stranger to getting all gay with his Jackass buddies, Johnny Knoxville takes on the role of Vincent Cassel — AS! — Thomas. Throw in a couple of men wearing leotards, some ass grabbing, and Rip Torn, and you've got yourself one dragtastic Black Swan spoof. (No, this wasn't the only movie parody the Jackass crew made for the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards.)

Flashback: When Maggie met Hedwig, Johnny Rotten, and Ezra’s apparent superior

(2:07, clip 1): “::laughs:: I don’t put down rules and regulations” [on marriage]

(3:42, clip 2): On the charge that she’s profiting off marriage: “I wish

And then a convoluted conversation about same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and gender identity that shows how much some of us have grown in a decade, while others among us have worked to regress our collective understanding:

Johnny Weir Isn’t About To Start Celebrating His Gayness (Or Become An Activist)

Because he wasn't hiding in the closet, DIDN'TYOUKNOW. Out promoting his memoir Welcome To My World this morning on Today, Johnny says he does want you to judge his book by his cover. Also, that he's "very surprised" by the reaction to his big reveal, which surprises me, because I'm pretty sure everyone out there knew this already? "I was born a white male. A white gay male. And I don’t celebrate being white or male. So why should I celebrate being gay? … I know people who have been activists for years and have worked so hard and tirelessly … and they have definitely wanted me to be an activist, but I think the best way I can be an activist is to live my life and not make that the main thing that is Johnny Weir. I'm much more than just a gay man." So true. You are Evan Lysacek's mortal enemy!

If You Don’t Take Johnny Weir Seriously Yet, His First Single Certainly Won’t Convince You To

If Johnny Weir is going to remain with us as a pop culture sensation, then he needs to provide a soundtrack. Enter "Dirty Love," the skater's first single. And, perhaps, his reality show's new opening notes. (Apparently it's written by Lucian, who's behind RuPaul's "Cover Girl"?) It's just the first installment of Weir's second coming; the book drops in January.

Johnny Weir Takes on Sexuality

Johnny Weir ‘Would Marry a Woman,’ And You Would Laugh At Him

I’m completely self-sufficient. I don’t need anyone for anything. I can have sex with myself, I can love myself, I can do all those things myself. The importance that people place on me not having another half even if it’s just for sex, it’s irrelevant to me. It’s very old-school. When you put people in boxes, you take away a lot of who that person is. How many gay men do we know who are completely straight-acting, who don’t even seem gay but they get classified in the same box as somebody who’s a drag queen? It’s void. It’s not real. I filled out my census form and I wrote down that I was a Pacific Islander because yes, I’m white, but why is that important? Why is anything important? You don’t need to have labels. I would marry a woman. I very well could. People laugh at me, but why is that so funny? I love women. My whole stance is that I just want people to react to who I am, I don’t want people to react to what I am. … My sexuality is not something I’m ashamed of. It’s not something I’m not sure of, it’s just that I have a very specific opinion of what sexuality is. For me, sexuality is sex. You can be heterosexual or homosexual with sex but be completely opposite with the relationship aspect of it. The two can go hand in hand, but they don’t have to. So, while someone can enjoy having sex with women, they could be totally happy marrying one of their bros.

—Johnny Weir, continuing the dance around his sexuality, which I'm actually starting to really enjoy
