Olympian Gus Kenworthy, who came out gay on the cover of last week's ESPN Magazine, shut down a Twitter troll who wanted to know whether he was “the woman in the relationship.”

The 24-year-old British-born American freestyle skier won the silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Just days after coming out, a random Twitter user asked: “Are you the man or the woman in the relationship? That's all I need to know right now.”

“In a relationship I am the man. As is the other man. I'm gay. Not trying to emulate a heterosexual relationship,” Kenworthy responded.

Kenworthy's tweet was favorited and retweeted more than 9,000 times.

Another tweet that got lots of attention included a shirtless photo Kenworthy posted of himself dressed as a mouse for Halloween.
