I don't follow figure skating except during the Olympics, so am not familiar with Mr. Rippon. But just saw a story with a hilarious quote by him. 

"I was recently asked in an interview what its like to be a gay athlete in sports," he tweeted. "I said that it’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work but usually done with better eyebrows."

    Love this.  Shows how stupid some people can be.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    @Gretchen: Awesome response! Actually inspiring that he can joke like that, assuming that either 1) he didn't have to deal with much serious homophobia or 2) he was able to rise above. Both reasons to be inspired about the world to me.

    I'm guessing he was able to rise above. But yes, both good reasons to be inspired!
