Evil in any form is insidious and spreads like a cancer or a viral disease.We now live in a very interconnected world because of rapid communication and travel.If one country sneezes we can catch cold so what happens in a country as powerful and influential as Russia will have a direct bearing on the rest of the world.These Russian laws are dangerous and can very well influence other homophobic nations to follow suit and give license to bigoted homo/transphobic people to harm LGBT people in their respective countries.

I hope many, many more countries follow Russia's lead and draft laws against homosexuality!
