    I'm tired of this story. Every country has different laws and policies -whatever. If Russian athletes visited the US for olympics or events, we would expect them to abide by US law - No? If you're a gay athlete, you go to compete in that country and respect the laws of that country and stay out of trouble.

    That is nice that you are tired of this story. I just hope that idiots like you are a fucking minority because the LGBT in Russia needs and wants our help not your idiotic appeal to "law" to justify discrimination. And here you are demanding "respect" for fucking Russian anti-gay laws... I can understand that people just dont give a shit but to those who dont give shit at least have the decency to keep your unhelpful comments out of the internet as a matter of actual RESPECT not only to the many victims in Russia affected by this law but to those who are actually trying to help them whichever way they can.

    thank you.

    Thank you, Komrad. Tell us, are you paid directly in rubles or Canadian dollars? I'd go for the dollars, I think you'd do better, the exchange rate is dreadful.

    Seems to me Russia is the ONLY place where US law can't bother you.

    And I pray that you, Breeman, never have to face hatred, abuse and even murder because you choose to be who you want to be.

    It wasn't so long ago that in your fucking wonderful country that homosexuals were interred into mental asylums and electro-shock-therapied into having absolutely no sexual libido at all, or chemically castrated so that homosexuals could not "corrupt" their local community. In fact, under YOUR constitution, groups who claim to "heal" gays (into confused, suicidal straights) are protected under freedom of speech, so before you start harping on about how wonderful the Utter State of America is, take a look at the society you accept, you arse.

    WOW you´re a dumb cunt. This is not even about athletes. Are you generally bored by human rights abuses or is it only when they take place on the other side of the world?

    The gay men and women of Russia would probably disagree with your uneducated opinion.

    oh we´re bored of hearing about the holocaust. If the Jews would INSIST on living in germany what did they expect? They should just abide by the laws of the country.
