Though this is the first time most of the world is learning about Tom’s sexuality, there is one person he made sure to tell before the big announcement: his mother, Debbie. He says she’s been “so supportive,” even if the rest of his family members have “mixed opinions” on the subject.

Tom also believes his late father Robert, who died from cancer in 2011, would also be OK with his announcement.“People will think, ‘What would your dad say?’” Tom says in the video. “He always said to me, ‘As long as you’re happy, I’m happy.’ And right now, I couldn’t be happier.”

Okay. Just need to do this because it’s something that continually happens to me and it pisses me off.

He did not come out as bisexual. He said that he fancies girls and is dating a guy. That says nothing about his sexuality.

Please PLEASE stop putting words into his mouth and slapping labels on him he hasn’t identified as.

If in the future he himself uses the label bisexual or pansexual or heteroflexible or gay or queer or doesn’t want to be labeled at all, let’s address him how he wants to be addressed, kay?

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,,,

“Bisexual?” More like full-on gay. He just doesn’t want to alienate his female fans.
