johnnygweir This is a letter I received today from a gentleman called Donald W. Barry. "I'm gay too...you are too gay for TV broadcasting. Dress appropriate, get a hair cut and don't make it a drag show. Make us proud not ashamed. I'm with a huge restaurant with many conservative straights watching this. You have set all my hard work here back ten years." First I'd like to thank the gentleman for the ten years of work. His letter didn't hurt me because I am stronger than a stranger, but discrimination within the gay community is a terrible thing and must end. Sir, I have worked very hard, done amazing things with my life just the way I am and if you have an issue, go watch a football game instead of the skating. I'm a comfortably gay man and everything you see on TV is me, it's genuine. If you don't like it, go watch Bravo. 2d
  •   llynch209 I am sorry but must partially agree with Donald W. Barry. I see nothing wrong with being proud gay. However being overly flamboyant just adds to the gay stereo-type. Your being in the public eye many believe that is what being gay is all about. Many of us lead perfectly normal lives just like straight people but that is not noticed. People only noticed the few that are seeking attention. 7h
  •   julialock7 The man who wrote the letter is epitomizing Respectability politics ...... 6h
  •   llynch209 A foot note to my previous comments. Your are obviously and wonderful skater. I also think you are one of the best commentators. Your knowledge and they way to explain things is terrific. But I feel that you could be flamboyant in your more private life and be more toned down in your more public roll of commentator. 6h
  •   thu246 If anyone has had the pleasure of meeting you they would immediately notice how truly kind & genuine you are. You are exceptionally awesome just the way you are! 6h

  •   williams_momma @johnnygweir You are perfectly and wonderfully YOU! And your fabulousness does not have to be explained or justified to anyone. You do you, boo. 🌞 3h
  •   celestecabourjeili @llynch209 Johnny Weir is only representative of himself until he says he is not. That being said, Johnny does not represent the gay community and his "flamboyance" does not represent you or other members of the lgbt community. Johnny Weir is just himself and if he were to "tone down," that would just add to discrimination against members of the lgbt community because it would show that stereotypes and common beliefs over power gay people and would just lead to more domination of straight people rather than equality. However, I still think you should not rely on celebrities to represent you because, like I said, unless they say otherwise, people are only representative of themselves. If Johnny is a problem for you, then you should simply represent yourself and create an image for yourself because you have the power to control your own image, not celebrities. 3h

  •   mo_mos_madness Don't know if you read these comments, but I'll second the comment above, and say I highly recommend tissue paper and THEN the bubble wrap. Bubble wrap, being plastic, can actually soften in hot conditions and begin the transfer to your item theoretically, it could ruin a purse!!! White acid free tissue is the way to go! 1w
