What are your thoughts on the current situation for the LGBT community in Russia?
None. What's LGBT anyway?-------------------------------------------
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender - though, if the 'label' a person goes by is not included, we tend to accept them regardless! IT's just an easier way of saying the whole thing!
I've heard some people dodge it altogether by saying "alphabet soup"
Perhaps it would be more understandable if the correct words were used, then it would clear. My answer is the same - none.
I am sorry for your confusion, but "LGBT Community" is a standard expression.
Is a standard expression in what? What is wrong with , male and female homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgender, are people embaressed by the correct terms and so have to use euphemisms.
Mick - it is the standard expression, or GLBT.
I think it's sad. No, actually more than sad, it's troubling. It also shows just how little the Russian Government understand about sexuality.
To be LEGALLY unable to show affection in any shape or form to a person of the same sex because it is considered "Homosexual propaganda" is ridiculous. Sure, PDA of any form, straight gay whoever, if over the top is a little off-putting and not pleasant to be subjected to, but to single out one minority of people and threaten them with legal action, if not jail time, is ludicrous. Now, if they banned PDA in general - it'd still be ludicrous, but it would be fair.
Russian Government officials are either running scared that the country will become homosexual - NOT going to happen folks..ever.. - or intolerant homophobes (and literally phobic as well - why make a law if you aren't?) who would like nothing more than to shepard the gays off to an island and let them die.
They obviously don't understand the basics of sexuality:
1 - One's sexuality is inbuilt.
2 - One cannot change one's sexuality - now, people may say "ahh, but bisexuals!" - nope, bisexuals may only be with one gender or the other, it DOES NOT stop their attraction to the other gender (than the one they are with).
3 - SEXUALITY IS NOT CATCHING!
4 - Viewing outward signs of sexuality - kissing, hand holding, hugging, etc - is not going to encourage people to suddenly change their sexuality (see number 2!). What it will ACTUALLY do is promote tolerance, acceptance, and generally create an equal society for everyone.
Unless, that is what they are striving for? An intolerant, seperatist nation. If thats the case, I can't say it will do them any favours, but that I will 'adopt' any LGBT who has been displaced because of it!. We are family.
You are quite right. To be more precise though, I would say it is very conflated with Russia's public rejection of "Western Liberal Values"
This is of course ridiculous. As if the LGBT community has it easy-peasy in the entire Western World. ugh.
