Australian Swimmer Ian Thorpe Annoyed At People Wondering If He’s Gay, Comes Out As Straight.

After years of rumors Ian Thorpe, the 5 time gold medal winning Australian Olympic swimmer is beginning to get annoyed at the fact that people think he’s gays.

In a recent television interview with Australia’s, ABC1. Thorpe talked about his bouts of depression after the Olympic games and addressed rumours around his sexuality by coming out as “Straight”

“I was down,” he said.

“I call it the dark times.”

And he said he was at a loss at what to do next after his failed bid for Olympic selection.

“It’s tough to comprehend. I worked so hard to do this, I haven’t really thought about what to do now,” he said.

When asked about his sexual preference he says: “Women”.

However he says that he realised as young as 15 years old that gay men found him attractive.

“Being asked about (being gay) gets annoying,” he says.

“I think people feel threatened by me because they can’t define exactly what I am.”

Thorpe who is currently trying for a comeback in the swimming world has been brutally hounded by the press and tabloids in the past over his sexuality.

It’s Official! Robert Pattinson Goes IN! – "I’m NOT Gay."

Not that I really care one way or the other but Pattinson told the Sunday Times:

“Over the past 18 months, the actor has been linked to countless models and actresses, and recently appeared to confirm the rumours that he was dating Stewart, but then mysteriously claimed that he was ‘allergic to vagina’. Er, what was that about? Is he dating Stewart then? Or is he, in fact, gay? I heard his two older sisters used to dress him up and call him Claudia when he was a boy. Actually, he’s ‘straight’, he says. He found the male-on-male sex scenes he had to perform in a film, Little Ashes, last year ‘strange. I played Salvador Dali. We were both straight, but he was Spanish, so much more confident about being naked and stuff, although when it comes down to it, it’s just as awkward with a girl, especially if you are straight and with a girl you don’t like… Anyway, Javier was really cool. After we had been pretending to have sex on this balcony in Barcelona, he was like, ‘We have such a strange job…’'”

God, even his frantic pronouncements of his heterosexuality are boring.
