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.

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

    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!

    Penis on the money…I’ll take some of those russian rubles. More stupid russians…must be in the dna or the vodka.

    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).

    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.

    Wow, Russians are insane. “People get the government they deserve”, or something like that…

    I wonder if he agrees all depictions of FEMALE nudity should be covered up as well, to prevent women from becoming lesbians ya know… *eyeroll*

    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.

    @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!

    Dan Villarreal deleted the following comment. He shows himself to be not only a self-hating homophobe, but a coward:

    Dan Villarreal, the writer of this story, played a part in helping bring about the very anti-gay hysteria about which he now reports. When he was at Queerty, he wrote a series of anti-gay, homophobic pieces, including one in which he calls on gays to “admit” that they want to indoctrinate children. Villarreal was trying to raise his public profile by writing outrageous, controversial things, and by posturing himself as a radical. For money and attention, he wrote the most false and disgusting things imaginable about gay people.

    His pieces were quickly picked up by anti-gay forces and circulated all over the world. Within days, Villarreal was being quoted by NOM. His anti-gay writing were translated into Russian and offered up as a basis for the anti-gay “propaganda” law. Children needed to be protected, Russian parliamentarians were told, because the gays themselves admit that they want to indoctrinate children.

    Dan has refused to apologize and has said he doesn’t care what the consequences of his writing are. He clearly just cares that more people have heard of him.

    But now he is deleting comments calling out his own history. Dan, your actions are further evidence of your guilt. And I screenshotted both the comments page from yesterday and I will do so again now, to record your cowardice.
