You can still still tell them how they eat the poo-poo though, right?

See this is more like the Russia that provided so many laughs before the Soviets went and just gave up. Keep it up guys. We can only seem less insane if you do your part.

So you're saying GLAAD doesn't have a Moscow headquarters?

This seems like a perfectly reasonable and effective policy that is sure to work and achieve its intended objective.

Better than the alternative, where we have to treat people with dignity.

Tennessee already tried to do that, Russia's just trying to keep up.

I really don't understand the anti-homosexual attitude. What even sparked it off? What made the men who fabricated the bible decide to add in a vague line about lying with another man in the first place? Clearly that wasn't the first instance of homophobia, but since nearly all animals seem to have some members exhibiting homosexuality and non exhibiting homophobia where did it come from, and why?

I always hear about masked men attacking all sorts of people in Russia. I can never tell if they're neo-Nazis - who are prevalent there - or if the rank-and-file Orthodox conservatives are really that violent.

Not only would they not be welcome because of the gay thing, as a foreign-based NGO, they would also have to register with the government as "foreign agents" and be subjected to regular government scrutiny:

Good.  No group of deviants should be talking to children about their sexual fetishes.  If children grow up and find that they're interested in something outside the norm, they can find out on their own.

Make all the jokes you want you better believe Putin is the progressive in this particular case. The left and the right in this want public hangings and castrations.

Where to start?
The Black Death of the 90's?
The tyrants throughout history
Edward 2 Richard 3
Alexzander of Macedonia
Nero Caesar
Of the 60 something old fart in the dayglo g string marching down the street with a feather duster stuck out his rear end
Or the state department congressional staffers who attack family programs and groups.

Take you pick

From the point of view of the slaves (Jews in Egypt, Christians in Rome), anything that your masters do (gay sex, orgies, random violence, stratified classes, leaving the poor to die, worshiping a pantheon of gods, etc) is that which you do not want to do, so it is deemed bad. You adopt behaviors contrary to that of your slave-master in hopes that you can differentiate yourself from the bad folks AND form a solidarity with other slaves.

Never understood the gripe with homosexuals. Every gay person out there increases the odds for straight people to find a mate. More homosexuals means less competition for straights. So whats the problem?

Again the black death of the 90's that was all on the homosexual community and the switch hitters.

Police Officer:  Young child, did your parents tell you about homosexuality?
Young Child:  What is homosexuality?
Police Officer:  When two boys kiss or two women kiss.  Now do you know what it is?
Young Child:  Yes.
Police Officer:  Good.  Did your parents tells you about this?
Young Child:  No.  You did.
KGB Agent: Comrade Police Officer.  You are under arrest talking about homosexuality to a minor.

social Darwinism, societies which produced less excess population and loveless marriages had less young men running away to war.

I think you misunderstood. I wondered where homophobia comes from. Where did it all start. If homosexuality is seen all over the animal kingdom yet homophobia isn't, then it's homophobia which is unnatural. So why does it exist?
