But there are a ton of hypotheticals for next years Winter Olympics.
The law doesn't ban gay people, it bans personal displays of affection in public places. So it would be fine for an athlete to claim that he or she is gay, it would just not be acceptable to kiss and grope each other in public, which is a fair law in my opinion

Straight men hold hands too you know. I am sorry you're not very bright. The law forbids any "homosexual propaganda."

That could be anything, including a fucking lisp.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...

Russia is extremely corrupted, that's a fact.

But I'm sure Russia today is a better source to figure it out.

Russia's parliament has unanimously passed a federal law banning gay "propaganda" amid a Kremlin push to enshrine deeply conservative values that critics say has already led to a sharp increase in anti-gay violence.
Fuck sake man you'd think these morons like TopSpinDoctor could read before they write.

Shame Russia isn't still a communist society because then everyone would be equal and everybody would be happy.

Obviously. So are other countries like China. Doesn't mean they are not super powers.

The only person who's not very bright looks to be yourself and the media misinterpreting the whole thing. The law is banning PDAs, nothing more. The phrase "anti homosexual propaganda" is simple shit stirring, sorry. This whole thing is being blown out of proportion simply to make headlines and enrage people like many who already posted in this thread.

PLUS. Russia is a completely different country. Their particular cultural values might be quite different to what is considered normal in the West. Just because YOU think PDAs are normal, does not mean others do too. It's ironic how people are quick to criticize others as "intolerant" while trying to impose their belief system on them...

Also, I have never see straight men hold hands. Don't know what you're talking about there.

Re: Russia to arrest openly gay tourists.

Muslims hold hands frequently. You are clearly very ignorant of the world.

Re: Russia to arrest openly gay tourists.

Show us some proof that the law DOESN'T outlaw "homosexual propaganda." Otherwise skulk back over to GM where you belong.
