Wrong strategy.

The BEST thing we could do is support our athletes and highlight the wins of any gay competitors.

No, not everything. We have, for example, left your obsession with gays intact. You will still be here tomorrow. And the day after. And the day after that. And...

Why do you care anyway? Your homosexual preoccupation alone disqualifies you as normal, so stop complaining about something that doesn't affect you.

These "protestors" can urge all they want, but I don't believe the boycott has legs. This is a worldwide event, and I doubt the protest will get much coverage. I would prefer that the athletes go, do their thing, and then be highly visible in interviews. Show them that gays and their supporters are participating, and that they disagree with the stand Russia is taking. I would like to see them not go in the first place, but I am a realist, and reality is that it is a worldwide stage for individual and team competition, and I doubt many would boycott. So go, and do the next best thing, be vocal.
