I think it's time this famous Australian was honest with the rest of us:
Is this prominent gay male in fact a closet swimmer?
Look closely at the photograph here. It's not only Thorpey we see here - in the background, we see a swimming pool. But what's it doing there? Does his mother know that he's been going to swimming pools in his spare time? What on earth would she have to say about it? Of course, there's nothing wrong with Ian Thorpe getting up to swimming in his spare time. Many people do it. But shouldn't he be honest about his passion for swimming? Otherwise, he may in fact be tacitly encouraging the swimmophobia of some Australians. And we wouldn't want that, now, would we?
