British Diver Tom Daley Comes Out as Bisexual
in a 5-minute video posted to his YouTube account today in which he says that some of the past statements he has made denying he is gay bothered him, so he wanted to speak out and feels it’s time:

They put the thing down your throat so you don’t swallow your tongue, and they put electrodes on your head. That’s what was recommended in Rockland County to discourage homosexual feelings. The effect is that you lose your memory and become a vegetable. You can’t read a book because you get to page 17 and have to go right back to page one again.
