|He jumps right out at you as the gay one.|
|Sergei may have sprigs of cherry |
blossoms running up the side of his robin's egg blue
costume. And what's at his waist? Is that .. pink?
Bestemianova and Bukin:
Dear God those costumes are gay and loud. No wonder nobody watched figure skating back then.
(It's curious that the Besti squat named after Natalia's move is done now mostly by ice dance men. Do they know this in Canada? How it's a Russian girl squat?)
Here's Brian Boitano in other costumes:
|Oh how gay.|
|If the wife-beater were white-gold shredded spandex with sparkles, or red shredded spandex with gold thread like the guys wear in CSOI, or if the darn thing would only be torn into rags after he did his back-flip, it wouldn't seem so gay.|
|Blue, collared button-down and dark skate-trousers. 180 from that gay, black sweater vest, gray, collared button-down and dark skate-trousers the other Brian is wearing above him.|
|God Brian, you make me sick! Why can't you dress like Brian?|
But I know one thing:
|It's not him.|
Perhaps Mrs. Moir cited Boitano over Orser because Boitano won the Olympics and Orser did not. That would also explain why she praised Browning as the man who came along and de-gayed things, because he won
zero Olympic medals, of any color.
Next is Johnny Weir, whose niche-appeal costumes include this black number with the outline of a corset indicated in pink fabric on the shirt. It's not a real corset, it's a motif, but damn it's outlined in pink AND men don't wear corsets (except Alec Baldwin under all his suits on 30 Rock).
Another reason you want to get rid of gay image people like Johnny Weir is you never EVER want figure skating to be entertaining.
