The Gay Tom Daley

The question whether +Tom Daley is gay or not has been asked (and not answered) so many times, it is becoming a running joke. There is a simple principle at work in that. The people who ask don't need to know. People who answer the question one way or another don't know. And the people who know don't answer the question. And this, in my opinion, is as it should be.

I do agree that he is cute and good looking. Guys in speedos or swimming trunks tend to be eye candies when they do a sport related to swimming. And speedos tend to be so revealing, too, where it counts most. But only a percentage of cute boys is gay (in or out of speedos); the others are bisexual. There are no cute heterosexuals, they are good looking. I hope you get the distinction.


What I find fascinating about him is the way he developed as a diver. He managed to change from scrawny teen boy to sporting hunk in three years. More, he did it while keeping the standards of his performances at peak level. Adjusting your performance in a sport like diving to changing weight and size is one of the most difficult things to do. I am impressed and not only by his physique. It is only logical that I like to see him jump, for several reasons. Look at these pictures in speedos to understand one of them.


But gay or not gay, +Tom Daley and +Zayn Malik would make a lovely couple, don't you agree? And Tom could have more speedo malfunctions, too. I wonder if Speedo plans to sue him for that?
