These protests are really annoying
I really do not understand these people. Russians assured the IOC and athletes that anti-gay law is targeted against propaganda of same-sex relations among children and do not prosecute gay people or athletes. That means there is no harassment of gay people in Russia so why these protesters still try to spoil everything about Olympics? Do they really believe their unfounded demands will change something and help LGBT community? They say that Olympics is not place for homophobia but Olympics were always above politics and other things, even wars stopped during the games and only weird psychos disrupt the principles of Olympics and want to turn the games into arena for political discussions that have absolutely no relation to sport. The games are to show the best among athletes no matter of their race, sexual orientation, religion or whatever. We have to leave this anti-Russian hysteria and may the best man win.
