Russia moves to enact anti-gay law nationwide
Source: Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP)-- Kissing his boyfriend during a protest in front of Russia's parliament earned Pavel Samburov 30 hours of detention and the equivalent of a $16 fine on a charge of "hooliganism." But if a bill that comes up for a first vote later this month becomes law, such a public kiss could be defined as illegal "homosexual propaganda" and bring a fine of up to $16,000.

The legislation being pushed by the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church would make it illegal nationwide to provide minors with information that is defined as "propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism." It includes a ban on holding public events that promote gay rights. St. Petersburg and a number of other Russian cities already have similar laws on their books.

The bill is part of an effort to promote traditional Russian values as opposed to Western liberalism, which the Kremlin and church see as corrupting Russian youth and by extension contributing to a wave of protest against President Vladimir Putin's rule.

Samburov describes the anti-gay bill as part of a Kremlin crackdown on minorities of any kind - political and religious as well as sexual - designed to divert public attention from growing discontent with Putin's rule.

Interesting story of a young Woman who writes about her sexual orientation.
Just to be clear, she was attracted to boys only, but 'learned' to be attracted to a Woman.
It was surprising how the college age Women went out and none of them ended up in their own beds at night. Does anyone see a problem with that?
Anyway, her lesbianism would suggest she was not gay, but turned gay.
But how can that be? Every gay advocate says it's a born trait, not learned.
This Woman says differently, obviously......

Sure, use interpretations to prove nothing poorly...why not, it's not like you don't have the right to judge other people's sexual activities, right ???

So, when your mother answered your questions, which made her a man, did you annoy her about the "change" ??? LMAOROTFU~!

Thanks for taking the time to read the article and using your very limited capacity to think your response through.
It's always great to have such a juvinile response from our resident douch bag.

The young lady was only attracted to the male species, but somehow ended up engaged to a woman.
Care to talk to the subject at hand, or are you so simple that you cannot?
I expect the same low intelligence reply from you, our resident unitard.

Thinking the "lady" is tri, she's such a tramp she'll try anything.
Most so-called lesbians are X hetros who no longer are willing to go to the trouble of dealing with men. Or were afraid of them from a young age.

Or realizing the need to set their sites a little lower, having dealt with the endless rejections that their psychosis will surely guarantee. Like slew, some psycho/lesbos were likely abused as children as well.
