Wtf is "gay propaganda"? Either you're gay or you aren't. It's not like watching reruns of queer eye for the straight guy is gonna make everyone gay.

As long as it doesn't include strippers in the VIP lounge, I'm ok with this law.

Oh, how quickly they forget.

"Gay propaganda" is anything that depicts gay people as something other than sex-obsessed, child-molesting, marriage-destroing, eeevilll, perverted monsters.

Seriously.  It hasn't been that long since the same thing was gong on in the US.  Within my lifetime, as a matter of fact.

I kind of enjoy the irony that if someone thinks gay propaganda is actually a thing, then they've probably succumbed to "gay propaganda", if not for the whole beating/murdering/imprisoning people for no reason part.

Anyone can draft legislation - here it's mostly lobbyists. Getting it on the calendar and enacted are just a couple of the remaining hurdles.

Armenia matters because it represent the  bottom of the barrel in Europe.

Because if they're just harmlessly being gay, that doesn't really bother as many people these days, at least not here.  But if they're gay AND they have an agenda, why they're trying to give all of our kids in school teh gheys!  They have to be painted as cunning monsters bent on spreading their nasties, because if they get portrayed as they truly are, regular people who happen to fancy those of the same gender and otherwise do all of the same things we do, it's hard to get anyone into a froth over that.

This stuff scares the hell out of me, especially after the SCOTUS decision to remove civil rights issues.

Jim Crow laws were based on the status of race. The same arguments, hatreds and fears were just repeated when people were dealing with DOMA. It's 50 years since the Civil Rights fight, and we're still heads up our asses about racism.

We HAVE to keep educating and fighting against bigots, especially as we go forward on gay rights.

Aarontology is correct, vernonFL.  You're probably confusing Armenia with Atlanta.  Common mistake.
