Media shouldn’t label Tom Daley

leave a comment »

Over the weekend, British Olympic diver Tom Daley made a touching video in which he told the world that he was in a relationship with a man. What he didn’t do was put a label on himself. He could be gay, bi, pan, queer, or any number of other designations. Or, like a growing number of young people, he could just prefer not to have a label. But of course this didn’t stop some media outlets from rushing to label him. And while most outlets simply reported that he was in a relationship with a man, others did not. Among the offenders: The Bilerico Project, Yahoo News, and whatever website this is.
