...activist Billie Jean King. (On Wednesday, King announced she would not attend the Games to care for her ailing mother.)

What a biatch. If my ailing mother was at the Olympics, and I was gay< i'd still go to Sochi to care for her...

justtray: Nana's Vibrator: Now you're just being obtuse. Politics is forcing a country to do something? The United States purposely selected openly gay former athletes in their delegation, including Billie Jean King, known best for...Winter Tennis? Tell me again that's not political. Tell me Wetzell wasn't wrong for suggesting that something political wasn't...political.
Then tell us again what a sham the olympics are, and in the same post discuss how politics you speak of belong in what you consider a sham. Try not to contradict yourself.
/You'll find that politics is exactly what's wrong.
//do you even know what a white knight is?
///dumbass to douche. Brilliant.

What a weird concept that a gay athlete, who competed before the olympics were even separated into winter and summer, to a competition that touts such heterosexual events as male figure skating or cramming four men into a penis shaped object.

Seriously, just fark off. Your white knighting of bigots is disgusting. Moreso given that their criticism is entirely unfounded.

Sorry you decided to come up with an uninformed opinion without reading the entire article and got called out on it. I suggest you don't double down on it next time. neither answered nor did you even address my posts...and now who am I siding with?  where did you possibly even really are that stupid.  congratulations.  you interpreted an apolitical viewpoint while I disclaimed the tragic and catastrophic issues and the possible but unapproached IOC coruption into ...bigotry?  You are so far beyond stupid it hurts that you can possibly be alive.  And I'd be certain it's a miracle that in all your stupidity you are breathing today.  Perhaps it started at the abortion clinic, when mom didn't want you, yet you crawled out of that garbage bag, but not before the dumpster fire took out the rest of your twitching twins...but you...oh you... You crawled out of that abortion dumpster fire just in time and made it all the way to fail remedial reading comprehension, occasionally falling down the stairs because paying attention for a few seconds is a problem...  Picking yourself up and dusting yourself off to find the helmet your foster dad makes you wear due to the aforementioned stair issue, never once thinking the helmet should go on BEFORE that tumble, day after day...and after all that you got to the computer just in time to respond and be wrong, yet again.  Good work, dude.  Thumbs up.  Hopefully you can tackle bath time or using kleenex one of these days.  But let's not try the internet thing anymore.  It's not working out for you.

MFAWG: sand_in_my_vagoo: With a quote like that I knew it had to be either the IOC or FIFA. Both of those organizations are corrupt on a level US politicians can only dream of.

H31N0US: Then again I never watch them anyway. Not because I don't like international discourse, but because I think the olympics are stupid.

I enjoy the Olympics.  What NBC has done with the way over-the-top melodrama they try to create does numb my brain, however.  And the IOC does piss me off.  Sadly, I am cheering for the trainwreck in these Olympics, but not to the point where any of the athletes are injured.

I don't find the Olympics stupid, but some of the athletes on the other hand...

It seems that the writer of that article took offense at something the
IOC leader (and Fencing enthusiast) said and vigorously defended the
US and US executive branch from the apparent insult.  There might
have been a story in there under all that opinion and defensiveness,
but I'm not sure.
