Or, at the least, all gay or gay-friendly athletes and support staff should stay home. I know that's hard for these folks, but it is the safest way to go if things don't change.

Or just an out right Boycott of the Winter Olympics might be in order.......either way, this Country is not safe for Gays and Lesbians whether it be Athletes or tourists!!!

And even if there were some type of official moratorium on these stupid laws, do you think the average Russian homophobe would take a vacation?
It would be very unsafe for any attendees to the Olympics - whether gay or perceived to be gay - to leave the confines of the Olympic area.
What if a host country had draconian laws against black people or jewish people, what would be the response of the IOC then?

No. Despots thrive on outside "interference." That's why the two-bit African dictators are so hot on homosexuality. Homosexuals are a great scape goat for their own failings. And outsider interest in the matter is just more proof that the country is being oppressed by them, not the dictator.

Most of Russia now needs to be suspended - from a rope of the appropriate length.
