Weir to broadcasters:"I felt very defiant when I saw these comments."

 

"I felt very defiant when I saw these comments." Johnny Weir said about Canadian boadcasters who said that the ice skaters "body language" and costumes  set a bad example for male ice skaters and that he may have to take a gender test.

"I'm not somebody to cry about something or to be weak about something,"


Claude Mahilot one of the french broadcasters said  "This may not be politically correct, but do you think he lost points due to his costume and his body language?"

His partner Alain Goldberg joined in  "They'll think all the boys who skate will end up like him, It sets a bad example." 

"It wasn't these two men criticizing my skating, it was them criticizing me as a person, and that was something that really, frankly, pissed me off," Weir told reporters. "Nobody knows me. … I think masculinity is what you believe it to be."  Weir said in response to them
