I don’t understand all these things; I also don’t understand the campaign [of protests against his performances].” He went on to claim that the impacts of the law are exaggerated by western media, saying: “I didn’t know about this law. I learnt about this law in the west. Nobody knows about this law in Russia because [the] law is never applied.

  1. Thank GAWD there are places in the US where homosexuality does not exist! The only things getting Rammed Down People's Throats are hot dogs and chicken wings!

  2. re: Gay CEOs who don't want to come out....

    there's a world of men and women who stand up to be counted. electing to be visible to help others. forgive me for rolling my eyes at the complainers on the sidelines who bemoan that "there are no role models Like Them" - you know what I mean. They don't want the visible role models that are already out there in terrific numbers, they want Some Other Type. you know, more "Like Them" - here's what they miss: those people they want to be their Role Models have no intention of being their role models. they don't care to help you, they think only about themselves in their plush lush lives.

    there are LGBT role models and vanguards all over. if you can't see one "like you" then you need to realize that your hoped-for leader/role-model doesn't care about you. all those other OUT people whom you disregard and dismiss? be inspired by them. stop ignoring the everyday heroes who put themselves on the line because your hoped-for Hero has zero f***ing interest in thinking about anyone but himself.

    those who scream (or rather, miserably type on the internet, anonymously) about a lack of visible role models are always the first to give the excuses to not stand up, themselves, and BE that role model.

  7. " I learnt about this law in the west. Nobody knows about this law in Russia because [the] law is never applied. No one is put in prison, no one is killed, no one is arrested."

    Same with the sodomy laws in the USA, but they were the roadblocks to almost all other rights, and they also made it socially acceptable to hate LGB people.

  8. "Australian rugby team Sydney Convicts are first gay team to play on professional level"

    I suppose "Gay Shame" will be on their case too...

  9. While we are extremely proud of Bishop Wayne here in St. Louis, just one teensy correction needs to be noted. It's the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, not St. Louis.

  10. Except, Valery, all those things DO happen. Other than the blood, you're exactly right.
