Johnny Weir: Level-headed Super Hero

Thanks to the Fug Girls for pointing me in the direction of this Johnny Weird story. I didn't even know his gender had been questioned on air by French Canadian broadcasters, but his response to the controversy was pitch perfect. He said, among other good things: “There’s a whole generation of people that aren’t defined by their sex or their race or by who they like to sleep with. I think as a person you know what your values are and what you believe in, and I think that’s the most important thing.”
