It’s pretty amazing, when you think about it, that no matter how much society inches forward toward equality the story from an individual level seems to stay the same. So personal, scary and raw.
Watching this struck a nerve with me…he may be a famous diver and I’m just some faceless person from the midwest, but his story is so familiar to me. Growing up I knew there was something different about me. I tried to play the “dating girls” game, even had myself convinced that I desired them. I dated and enjoyed their company - “fancied them”, but never desired them sexually. I eventually found a boy I liked a lot and we became very close…I struggled with it and decided that I was bisexual. As time went on I realized that even that label was a lie. I’m gay.
I’m not saying that Tom is going down the exact same path, he may very well be bisexual and not on the slow train to Gayville like I was…but where ever he lands I’m glad he is happy with where his life is. I’m so glad that he made this video for others to see and learn from. Being open and honest takes such a burden off the shoulders of a person…I wish him continued happiness and success.

This is the greatest knock knock joke in the history of all knock knocks jokes ever told, ever.
