Adam Rippon Was Adorable and Focused on the Olympics at 13

Adam Rippon Was Adorable and Focused on the Olympics at 13

"But more than that, my mom has always taught me to stand up for what I believe in, and that has given my skating a greater objective", Rippon said. I've gotten so many messages I could even get emotional thinking about it, but I've gotten so many messages from young kids all over the country that my story's resonated with them. "In 2006 he said gay couples signal societal collapse, and in 2007 he opposed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a law that would prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ folks".

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who led the U.S. delegation at the Olympics' Opening Ceremony, has been criticized for his support of "religious freedom" laws and reported advocacy of "conversion therapy".

Weir and Lipinsky were not the only ones impressed with Rippon's performance, which earned the USA eight points in the team event, keeping them in the hunt for a medal. The third member of the US men's delegation, two-time national champion Nathan Chen, missed the session because of a change in his training schedule in advance of the men's singles event, which starts here on Friday with the short program.

"Right now I have a voice, and I think it's really important for me to use it".

Speaking of the Sesame Street crowd, at the same press conference where he called himself "America's sweetheart", he explained his motivation for being out and proud at the Games. Prior to competition, the 28-year-old made headlines for standing up to the infamously antigay Mike Pence, an apparent proponent of the unsafe practice of conversion therapy. Rippon told NBC's Andrea Joyce. The other day I was joking to one of my friends, and he was like 'you're kind of everywhere.' And I was like 'I know. I want to go over to the judges and say, "Can I just have a Xanax and a quick drink?"

Rippon's comments appear to refer to Pence's 2000 congressional campaign website on which the then-candidate said he believed resources should be "directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior".

"To all those who tweet at me saying that they "hope I fail", I have failed many times many times in my life", Rippon wrote. "It's really fun to be me".

"I can't. I can't tone it down". "It's given me a voice to reach to young kids". I said that it's exactly like being a straight athlete.
