OZ swimmer Ian Thorpe has had enough of gay gossip: “People Are Questioning My Integrity”…

Thorpe has long been rumored to be gay, but Does anyone really care?

“The thing that I find hurtful about it is that people are questioning kind of my integrity and what I say. That’s the only part that I find hurtful. Like is that, you know, this is something that I would be embarrassed about, that I would hide or whatever else.

I don’t want to offend anyone that, you know, whether they’re people [who] have friends that are gay or whatever else. I don’t want to offend them by getting angry about it, getting frustrated about it. The only part that I’m frustrated with is that people think that I’m lying.”

He blabs in an interview with  Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

    The man couldn’t construct a sentence if it was made out of balsa wood and came with instructions. He didn’t answer the question. Ian , no one, at this point in your career, cares if you’re gay, so if you are just admit it. You’ll inspire a lot of young men and women to not fear what they think may be a flaw. It’s society that’s flawed.
