Here’s master asshat Elvis Stojko talking abt his problem with feminine skaters: People in the gay community have to realize they’ve got to take themselves out of it. I’ve been getting heat for this, but there are people behind me saying that they appreciate it. Criticisms of effeminate skaters aren’t so much about sexual identity as they are gender expression.
It’s about what people can identify with when they’re watching the sport. Effeminate men can identify with effeminate skating. When I watch it, I can’t identify because I don’t move like that. And male effeminacy is often just as frequently derided and condemned in many gay subcultures as it is in the mainstream.
So while on the one hand, I believe Lysacek can identify however he fucking wants, his strategic dishonesty, if that’s in fact what’s happening here, disturbs me.
I’m concerned Lysacek — who as I understand it, has previously been assigned (and I believe actively embraced) a role as the great butch savior of the fagified sport of men’s figure skating — is complicit in, and perhaps actively supports, the homophobia, femiphobia, misogyny and gender policing currently on the rise in his sport. I’d argue it actually highlights some of my concerns with “gay identity” and its limitations.

I wondered — was Andrew on point, was I being a hypocrite? ” Andrew was poking fun at me because of my very vocal embrace of Queer politics and theory and reluctance to fully embrace the (socially constructed, historically specific) category of gay identity.Liukin and Lysacek have been spotted party-hopping around Vancouver since Thursday night, when Lysacek soared past Evgeni Plushenko to win the gold.
