I think Russians have a right to protest Gays but they shouldn't go this far.

This is what happens when a government condemns a minority group. It happened to Jews and other minority groups in Germany, even before the Nazis started putting them in camps. It doesn't take much to whip the mob into a frenzy of hate against a particular group of people.

How does one "protest" a harmless natural trait? Do you also protest green eyes? Height? Shoe size? Hair color?

It's not like a person can choose to be gay, or choose not to be.

What is the goal of protesting a natural trait? What are gay folks supposed to do? Pretend to be straight to make bigots feel better, and marry the bigot's sons and daughters in loveless marriages of convenience? Kill themselves?

Geesh.

History of Human Being goes on thousands years.

Legislation for homosexual relations do you think this is progress?

It resembles me ancient Rome or ancient Greece.

Basically I agree with you, but I don't think they are bullying the gays. They are simply trying to help the gays understand the error of their ways.
