.... It's simply disheartening to have watched this man grow up, follow his career for so many years, and then find out that he's not really the person you thought he was, based upon 100's of interviews.
There seems to be quite a bit of that going on lately! Jimmy "So Vile" Savile, Lance Armstrong etc. I realised Marat had rather dinosaurish tendencies in his attitude to women, but who would've suspected him to be quite
hypocritical, conformist, authoritarian
conservative in his outlook, especially, as you say, after all those many interviews, most notably 2007 Marie Claire: "the first thing which is important for me is for the girl to be someone as an individual ... for her to have her own identity, and not be afraid to express her opinion and stand by it
". Welcome to the world of Pussy Riot, Marat.
