I just....I....I mean....really? What with all the horror and evil in this world these guys are scared of gay people? Amazing.

What with the recent Pussy Riot controversy things certainly do seem to be taking a sinister turn in Russia recently. Or maybe nothing's changed at all?

Also very stupid people seem to be part of the anti gay thing if that is the best they have.

On the other hand, Madonna is being sued.

There are so many, many things to criticize Madonna for, this is not one of them...!

This basically. It is rare that I find myself siding with Madonna...

I find it amusing that they are suing her for upsetting them and disrespecting their beliefs... whereas their views obviously are in no way upsetting or disrespectful to the Gay community. Maybe they should sue them on similar grounds and see if either case makes it through.

Russia is not having a very good couple of weeks PR wise.

Sued where? $10m suggests the US - in which case it's all but a non-story as it should be chucked out of court.

I don't really get this Pussy Riot thing as anything other than an excuse to slap Russia with. If some group of badly dressed reality show rejects did that in Canterbury the Mail would be demanding the return of the death penalty and wouldn't shut up till charges were handed down.

Off topic but Madonna is amazing, and I'm totally a hetrosexual male.

Yeah I thought this, but this Pussy Riot thing does seem to be another niggle of all the things that happened in Russia or got involved itself into.

I suppose luckliy the difference is, over here those aren't the people deciding on the sentances!

One thing that confuses me about these homosexuality laws there (apart from the obvious fact that they merely still exist) is this thing about 'gay propaganda' - what the hell is that exactly? Image that comes to my mind is Nazi style posters of horrendously offensive gay stereotypes trying to lure straight boys with Kylie Minogue records and bum-plugs - completely ludicrous thought! Shocking that people think that being gay is something that gay people would want to aggressively influence onto others through the use of propaganda!
