  •  You keep assuming he "knew" (15+ / 0-)

    Despite numerous posters pointing out that often people in that situation don't "know", and grapple with the issue for years before they recognize it. I can see some reasons, too, why it might actually be harder for him than for some. As a top athlete he's living in a world, on a scheduie, with a lifestyle that is pretty artificial. It doesn't have the built in relationship reality checks that many of us have through observing behaviors and interactions of other people and couples around us. Add to that, he's got an identical twin who is hetero, married and has kids; so he's probably thinking whatever is eating at him can't be "the gay" because he should be just like twin brother in that respect.
