Russian MP Worries Tiny Nude Guy On Russian Currency Will Turn All Children Gay!

Money

Liberal Democratic Russian Parliament Member Roman Khudyakov recently wrote his country’s Central Bank asking them to change the 100 rouble note because, according to him, it “clearly” shows Apollo’s genitals. As such, Khudyakov says that the “pornographic” bill runs afoul of the country’s ban on exposing minors to "gay propaganda”.

Pink News reports:

[Khudyakov said,] “I submitted a parliamentary request and forwarded it directly to the head of the central bank asking for the banknote to be brought into line with the law protecting children and to remove this Apollo.”

In the letter, he complained that “intimate parts of the body” were visible on the banknote, which he says should have an “18+” rating under the anti-gay law.

Lawyer Pavel Ivchenkov said: “The 100-ruble bill with a picture of Apollo is essentially a print product and can in fact be considered as ‘information of a pornographic nature’.

Pink News goes on to note that “The real statue of the Greek god – at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow – was itself censored in 2011, when it was covered up with a fig leaf,” and adds that, “Apollo had many gay lovers, including Hyacinthus and Cyparissus.”

Khudyakov has not taken into account the possibility that Apollo’s microscopic penis on the currency may in fact encourage young women to pursue heterosexuality.

  1. Dear Russia, try to care a little bit more about the children and young women being sold into sex-trafficking rings. Thanks. Perspective.

  2. As like a member of the US Congress, I am guessing a member of the Russian Parliment has WAY too much free time on their hands and not really concerned about real issues that affect ordinary people.

    good job Russia for copying The Low Standards set by GOP pigs!

  4. Nevermind Apollo's tiny junk; there are four exhibitionist horses showing off (although Russia's own Catherine the Great didn't mind horsing around now and then).

  5. A guy that is so worried about a depiction of a semi-nude statue has some real issues. I bet he has some very dirty laundry.

  12. There's a penis, really? And the Russ really covered up the original with a figleaf? Next thing you know, any male dogs with short hair and visible junk will be in real trouble, and what about male horses? Even geldings throw boners sometimes. Lookout, male animals, they're gonna censor you! I'll bet our teabaggers are taking notes.

  14. You can see the statue with figleaf here:

    To be fair, this is on the facade of the Bolshoi in front of which is a little square where gays used to gather Soviet times. So obviously the statue was turning lots of people gay back in the day!

  19. @Onnyjay : if you think the Russians are dumb in that regard, read up on John Ashcroft, George Bush's prudish AG - http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2002/01/29/statues.htm : "No longer will the attorney general be photographed in front of two partially nude statues in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice.

    "The department spent $8,000 on blue drapes that hide the two giant, aluminum art deco statues, said spokesman Shane Hix."

    $8000? What a waste of money! Why didn't they just give it to me instead? Then everyone but I would call it a waste!
