This ban has done more for a child's awareness of gay issues than ten years of pro-LGBT campaigning .. I mean , HOW DUMB CAN THEY BE?! No limit to some people's idiocy .. and all to our advantage .

If you ask nice maybe they'll rebuild the Berlin Wall for you. No doubt you'll be on the wrong side of that as well. Serves you right!

Correct. Russian children have respect for their elders and tradition.
And absolutely none for anybody else's.

One has to have a more-open society for that to work. This is not like the Diocese of Boston banning a book that everyone will go buy. This is more like preventing Evelyn Hooker's research from being published and punishing anyone who discussed it.

But perhaps mixed with the Olympics it does easily get to the children's attention ; and how do we know what a child hears within the family circle ? They're as sharp as tacks ; and the dinner table is a constant source of gossipy information for them since their elders seldom know when to hold their tongues .. I've witnessed this even amongst the strictest of families in Catholic Rome and Genoa and I just can't believe it's much different in Russia . They're a noisy bunch and one Russian is the equivalent of ten Italians when it comes to talking and exaggerating facts .

How does Russia's anti gay views affect people outside of Russia? And get a dictionary and look up the meanng of the word "decent".....it doesn't apply to people who hate other human beings.

These phonies care nothing for decency .. I've always wondered why the Topix staff doesn't give them the boot .. What is their contribution to this Forum ? Or for that matter , to the human species ?

This is not as much about punishing gays as it is about giving the people a common enemy. Putin, having learned well the lessons of Hitler, is first giving his people someone to hate by telling them it's okay to hate as long as it's the gays, then showing them he's the one leader willing to do something about this "scourge."

It has been clear for some time now that Putin has his eyes on becoming the undisputed dictator of Mother Russia. Although he's trying to also appeal to old, hard-line Communists with promises of the return of the Leninist state, I don't think he has any intention of fulfilling those promises.

This is truly a case where gays are the new Jews.(Yes, I know Hitler also went after the gays, but it was only a sidebar to his real extermination plan.)

Mr Putin has got it right.

No need to lynch the gays but definitely no pro-homo propaganda anywhere.

You are naïve if you think the forbidden is not a thousand times more attractive than the permitted . Just check the social history of nations .

That would explain why homosexuals, if unrestrained, tend toward pedophilia.

I think it`s to put gays in jail or deport them to the west.
