    Good for them, but you wouldn't see me fucking with Putin like that. They should ask Pussy Riot how that worked out for them. :chair:

    I still dont get why Russia gets all this rage about the gay shit but not a single word to the Muslim world who actually kills them. Im also pretty sure China has almost identical gay laws as Russia and nothing was said about that when it comes to the Olympics.

    Taking the topic seriously for a minute, it's complicated. Putin is in a delicate position right now in terms of maintaining support in the country, and the Russian Orthodox Church is one of his most staunch allies. These anti-gay laws are really playing to his base and show that he has the blessing of the Church, and it almost shows that the government is loyal to the Church once again after 100 years or so of Communist/atheist rule (who were no friendlier to the gays, by the way). If you don't give a damn about your relationship with the U.S. and Western Europe, it's a really smart move on his part.

    To the Muslim issue, that's more of an American ideal; Russia has a large Muslim population it inherited from the Ottoman Empire invading the old Byzantine Empire (whose remnants became Russia, Czar is slavic for Caesar, the Tsars claimed to be the heirs to Constantinople's crown). So there are a lot of ethnic Russians who converted to Islam to avoid paying a jizya tax under the Turks and are now part of the Russian state, to come out as anti-Muslim wouldn't serve him well. Now if you mean anti-terrorist or anti-secessionist Muslim, just look at how he's settled down Chechnya. The Russians also don't particularly fear "Islam" in general, they hate the Turks and their Sunni allies while being staunch allies of Iran and the Shiite nations (which is why they are helping Assad).

    Two hot chicks kissing is the only form of protesting that should be done

    I find it humorous how the american media is getting their panties twisted in a knott over what goes on in Russia.

    Especially since I don't recall and protests over China's human rights record a few years back

    Ever get the feeling the people who control this country, control the media, and control your thoughts want you to talk about nothing but black stuff and gay stuff? Hey! wanna talk about Trayvon? gimme a fucking break.

    Meanwhile, this country is changing forever- for the worse- from the heritage it has had for 250 years, or economy is sliding down into the European shit-hole model, and our freedoms are being taken from us at an alarming rate. But, all that's OK, because we have our first "black" president. Blah, blah, blah. The whole thing would be a huge fucking joke, if I and my children happened to be living in another country that is.

    on the bright side, if the whole world goes gay, which apparently is the new goal of the socialist left in this country and many others, the human population should get back in line within 100 years. That should solve most of our "environmental " problems.

    Because they are white and should know better. Liberals give the chinks and ragheads a pass because they aren't as evolved as the whites so don't know any better.

    The one thing that Howard got right is that everyone loves lesbianism. Even the Bible doesn't specifically prohibit it - it only talks about men lying with men as with women. Nothing about women lying with each other.

    For the same reason you don't see feminists protesting in Muslim countries, they know who they can pick on.

    If they were really committed to this protest, they would have gone down on one another right on the stand.

    Bingo. Everything is clickbait bullshit these days, where information is re-sculpted to fit the narrative they feel will be most entertaining and grab the most attention. Sure that's nothing new in the historical press sense but these days they seem to be dragging it to new lows in the quest to outdo one another and break the information first in the age of instant-communication where every millisecond counts. Trouble is the first outlet gets it wrong and the rest just copy/paste/regurgitate into mass marketed fishfeed.

    There also seems to be a trend where fact checking is out the window because there's no time for it anymore, it takes too long and someone else would end up getting the clicks, so instead they apologize later for getting it wrong because its more time efficient and goldfish attention spans don't remember 24hrs later anyway.
