Its a conservative's wet dream over there. They must be jealous as fark.

If they actually enforce the alcoholism part I'd be really surprised.

Agreed. Maybe we can work out a friendly exchange? They can have our worse-than-useless Conservative wing-nuts and we will take their gays.

Man, that country is just a violent dictatorship with a fake democracy. It's a good thing they don't have US government secrets that would allow them to circumvent our privacy protections and internet traffic. Oh yeah.....

I would like to suggest to all our conservative friends that they move to Russia!

We need a campaign to sneak Russian gays out, like we did for Jews in the Soviet Union.
 
2013-09-05 01:15:45 PM
The article says a legislator is proposing it.  It does not say Russia will pass the bill.

There are plenty of legislators in the US who want the same thing.
 
2013-09-05 01:18:37 PM
The proposed bill would also do the same for alcohol abusers which would effectively abolish what we consider parenting.
 
2013-09-05 01:19:26 PM
FTFA:The draft bill, published on parliament's website on Thursday, would make the "fact of nontraditional sexual orientation" a basis for denying custody. Other grounds include alcoholism, drug use, and abuse.

According to Russian law, no parents should be allowed custody of their kids if Alcoholism is a criteria for denying custody.
 
2013-09-05 01:19:52 PM
Is one of the admins a gay Russian? Cripes. Do we need a new thread every day about how those mean Russians treat their gays?

Russia wasn't free under the czars, they weren't free under the communists, and they're not free now. No shiat.
 
2013-09-05 01:20:31 PM
If they ban alcoholics from being parents, who will raise all of the kids?
 
2013-09-05 01:21:45 PM
You see this is a giant smoke screen for  Syria.  The russians have learned well, distract the people with something then do whatever you want.

Bslim: The proposed bill would also do the same for alcohol abusers which would effectively abolish what we consider parenting.


the bill is entirely for taking kids from gay parents, Alcoholism is already on the books over there as a reason to remove custody of kids.

What did you guys honestly expect? There were several generations of Russian children raised exclusively by their mothers. There's not enough vodka in the world to moderate that little detail.

if only we had some place to hide them, some place most people wouldn't dare think to put them... some kind of smuggling system...

The difference between the two countries and less and less each day, Comrade. Snowden only showed us the ugly truth that our "betters" sought to hide from us.
 
2013-09-05 01:52:37 PM
If only they still had some kind of secret police that could handle these matters. Russia knows they want Communism back they just don't know how to do it without revolts yet.

This seems to contradict Putin's earlier assurances that, yes, homosexuality is well tolerated here - could it be that Putin is lying through his farking teeth?

Why are all protest signs written in English? Even in non English speaking countries.
 
2013-09-05 04:03:33 PM
The problem, and the key to understanding this, is that they think homosexuality is a learned behavior, not an inborn one. So, the idea goes, if we keep homosexuality away from children, there will be no homosexual children, thus no homosexuals the next generation, thus problem solved. It's an idiotic thought process, but an understandable one. If you talk to the average Russian, you'll find he has no problems with homosexuality, and couldn't care less who farks whom behind closed doors. But talk of "gay pride" or any overt display of homosexuality will drive him mad. That's the way it is. They're trying to enforce this version of "separate but equal." I don't see how it could possibly work.

Because English is the global language, and you have the highest chance of being understood by an audience in any nation where the media shows those images.

Funny. I have a campaign to take away young soldiers from the Red Army so they won't be sold into male prostitution by their officers. The Russian Army is full of damn cute little guys. But they shouldn't be tortured, beaten, robbed, molested, prostituted, murdered, indoctrinated with hate, or sent to war.

A list of people Russia should take children away from

10. Alcoholics
09. Eastern Orthodox Priests
08. Jehovah's Witnesses
09. Hobbits
08. Mormons
07. Roman Catholic Priests
06. the Red Army
05. Vladimir Putin
04. The Russian Mob
03. Russian billionaires
02. Unfit heterosexual parents
01. Russian politicians

They are all written for you. Yes, you, personally, Stuffy. They are all coded secret messages from the Powers that Be. They all say:

Your shoes are untied. Made you look.


The Great Conspiracy is a bunch of ignorant jokers.

Or maybe, it's because protesters the world over like to hold up signs in English for the world press. Not a lot of people speak the oppressed languages, but almost everybody, especially the oppressors, can read English the language of the Good Oppressors.

Say it in Broken English. The first rule of modern communications theory.

God sang that song. What was her name? Martha? Mary? Mary Anne Faithful. She was really popular when I was a college freshman and the song was a big hit. I saw her on Absolutely Fabulous. You know, for a Dame that age, she was looking really cool. And fairly hot, even.

Some people think she is the Devil, but in reality, that is Anita Pallenberg. Or possibly some English guy with a fruity accent.

Clemkadidlefark: Nobody wants gay parents


Well, it does put a real cramp on adolescent rebellion. You have to become a Young Conservative.

A Young Conservative. Than which there is no hipster more douchebag.

If you are a girl, you can become a Priggish Catholic School Girl type, like Saffy Monsoon from AbFab. Memo to self: rewatch AbFab soon. Finish rewatching The Mighty Boosh first, though.

My cousin was a Young Quaker Prig type when she was young. Boy, has she changed.

I used to be Snow White but I drifted.

How do you mix that? I know how to mix a white Russian and a black Russian, but not a gay Russian...

that's the beauty of a democracy, the laws of the land will normally mirror what the majority of the citizens believe.  In this case they dont seem to like gays and are unwilling to negotiate with them or be intimidated by them.  I guess that's what happens when you have a country filled with real men instead of the sissified emasculated men that mostly live in the USA.

there is actually some merit in the idea that homosexuality is learned, go ahead you have Google so you can do your own research into the matter.  Some of it may be a genetic abnormality or some other malfunction but a lot of what we are as people is learned.  It is the same reasoning as to why people are pedophiles or commit sex crimes, typically that behavior is brought on based off of what is expierience in childhood.  There is no reason to assume homosexuality is not the same.
