Like what tristanllrl had said. So what in regrades to your statement? Yours is a pathetic attempt to get us to think that 300,000+ signatures are useless and therefore we should stop and feel defeated and endorse yourselves in self pity. It’s not useless. And if this fails, we will try again, again and again and again. We won’t stop.. ever. I know it’s crazy to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. But if it fails we will try again and it won’t fail after a while - Look at the world in regrades to the LGBT today and compare it to how it was just 15 years ago. Attention to this is what is happening and wanted.
littlemom, gays are not forbidden to wear their rainbow ribbons?… Wow! Great! Thanks! What has this got to do with anything? Try to see ‘gays’ as 3 dimensional PEOPLE for a change. “But if some issues make the majority feel uncomfortable (like adoption), the minority should step back.” Err… NO! That’s my answer to that statement. We try to live in a democratic republic, not a dictatorship of the majority. How would you like it if you were a minority in a country using your logic? You lack empathy. “You have all the rights”. Are you kidding me? Did you even read what I stated. “Just don’t push these rights in our faces” - Oh we will, that is how we will get them. So since you called them ‘rights’, and they are being denied and you agree with the denial, what does that make you? And aren’t straight Russians pushing themselves onto gay people in a far worse way – see pictures for evidence! “If you knew Russian, you could read Russian discussions abot this problem, a lot of funny comments and no agression… We have many open gays, they are famous and have a lot of fans.” – Don’t care. Does not excuse the disgusting behaviour, or creates a balance, of the straight Russians in the pictures and how gay people are generally treated in Russia. And yes you have rights too, you have the right to not to deny other people their rights.
It’s not a pro-gay propaganda word. It is a word used as a justification of hating a group of people because of an irrational fear of what they will do or what you think will happen once gay people get equal rights. Fear leads to violence and hate – see pictures for details!
“Nobody licks each other” - Don’t speak for all straight Russian as I really don’t think you met them all of them and know what they have done or don’t do. Stop putting straight people on a pedestal. And look at these photos above you. Licking each other in public is not something I degree with but this violence is okay? Look again at these pictures - Are these the actions of straight Russians at their best? Compare licking by gay people (I assume you met every gay person in Russian and know they lick themselves in public!) to these acts by straight Russian. Which is worse? And this fight is not about sex! In Russian there are no Anti-discrimination laws in any area for gay people, no same sex marriage, no Recognition of same-sex couples as de facto couples or civil partnerships, no Joint and/or step adoption by same-sex couples and gay people are not allowed to serve openly in the military. AND NOW because of that fucked up leader, gay people DO NOT have the right to speak publicly or even hold hands, kiss etc. with each other without being persecuted. No Double standard? Can straight people not do any of the things I mentioned above?
Okay, you’re straight - be straight. Nobody’s going to rush into your house and check your bed. Don’t we have right not to look at them kissing, touching each other and walking in the streets with some posters about their heterosexuality??? Double standard! And these parades are there to make straight Russian realize that we exist and deserve basic rights that they have. straight Russians shouldn’t be annoyed that gay parades exist, they should be lucky they don’t need a parade of their own.
