Let me get this straight, I want to make sure I have your argument right.
It is okay if Scott Hamilton, the Shibs, Meryl and Charlie, and Virtue and Moir, Evan Lysaceck, Gracie Gold, Agnes Z, and countless others at media summits turn a blind eye toward possible mistreatment of their fellow gay athletes at the Sochi Games.
It is NOT okay if David Lease and Jenny Kirk express their negative opinion about that on their blog.
What's the alternative? Martyrdom? If that's your thing, it's your thing, but don't expect others to play along.
