    Basically, the usual homophobic Russian lawmakers are at it again, and at the same time they blame America for "pedophilia, violence and brutality" (since they are against violence and brutality), while praising Italy for their banning of homosexual couples (and all sort of rights to LGBT people - I live there sadly):

    LOL.. Italy have same sex couples there too. Russia is really silly. The same sex are everywhere. Russia is going to change their policy over same sex couples someday anyway.

    What's wrong with that ? Every children in the world are beautiful children and they need love for opposite and same sex couples anyway. The race isn't important. Love is.

    I don't see anything odd here - homosexuality is treated as indecensy and perversion and any and all displays of it are legally forbidden in the public sphere, as such, the Russian government takes measures to "protect" Russian children from what it believes to be indecent and perverted. It's literally doing its job according to its own standards it laid out.

    Is it homophobic? Of course it is, so is a massive portion of the Russian society. Go on ahead and blame government propaganda, the influence of orthodox church, the strong insistance on tradition and as part of it also the traditional image of a family, but at the end of the day, the great majority of Russians just don't like homosexuals - that's how they were brought up and they don't question this legislature - if anything, many support it.

    According to a recent survey 87% of Russians oppose gay parades, 16% want gays to be isolated from the rest of the society, 22% insists on compulsory treatment and 5% want them exterminated, are we really going to chastise the Russian government for catering to the Russian citizen?

    Why wouldn't anyone? They're adorable! You can stack them, one inside of another, and then take them back out again. Plus, they're great for holding vodka!

    Did that guy really just say pedophilia only exists in America?:unsure:
    That's quite an extreme and uneducated guess he made.
    To even compare us as worse than southern asian and island countries is a slight exaggeration.

    Do you seriously think that a 620x388 signature is acceptable? 388 pixels is taller than your average post, I believe the limit on the old forum was 250 pixels and that was still stretching it - 150 pixels or so should be entirely sufficient.

    That sounds an awful lot like the percentage of votes Putin got...

    I'm not one to judge whether or not the survey was reliable, but knowing Russians as well as the general attitudes towards homosexuals in this region of the world, I would say the results are relatively accurate. Homophobia's rampant where I live as well, but not as extreme as in Russia's case and only present in the lower castes of the society - the uneducated slobs, the elderly, the extreme right-wings or the orthodox devouts.

    Rural areas will always be extremely homophobic, if not xenophobic as well.
    Just look at the bible belt in the US, most of that is rural.
    And yes, knowing Russia, it's extremely accurate.
    Considering Putin got over 100% of the votes ;p

    I wouldn't really put Putin into the mix because Putin is an obvious dictator figure, except nobody wants to talk about it. Anyone with two braincells that meet every now and then will notice that a person who has the law changed during a period of self-invented tandemocracy for the sole purpose of being able to become a candidate in the next elections is a future dictator. He's power-hungry and I don't think that falsifying the elections is beyond him.
