    Broseph saidI can't help but wonder how many decades this will go on there. All of the video of actual beatings will be the historical documentation of Russia's brutality toward us in this age. Perhaps one day in the distant future they will be shown in an LGBT museum in Moscow...


    Be careful how you wish what you wish for...

    Decades could be a century. My ancestors fled the Russian pogroms of the 1800s. Even with intermittent periods of relative calm, between deadly times in the early 1800s and the late 1800s and then again in the early 1900s that culture has been murderous to its own citizens for generations. This hate isn't something new. It is something old revised. Before aimed at my great grandparents, now at my brothers and sisters.

    That vid was super disturbing. Well done though.

    It makes me wonder what could be the cause of such terrible behavior...

    I wondered that too. Both sides of my family have been here since the 1800s so I've only heard 2nd hand stories. One ancestor was from St Pete, which was supposed to be unusual for Jews so probably pretty successful which might indicate a victim of scapegoating during hard times. I've heard a bunch of stories of another great grandfather from there but the guy was so hated by his descendants that I don't put much stock in anything said. And I don't know their country's history.

    But in thinking about it, scapegoating sounds like a familiar echo, particularly since religion was so restricted there for so many years and by now they have Western influences penetrating their society at, I'd imagine, every level. But they can't strike out at us, so maybe they found a "moral" target within. That's just off the top of my head. I haven't studied the issue. And then how they get to be so violent in their attacks? That's some of the stuff I never understand.

    Russia and America are living proof of why Australia must never become a republic. I feel safe here as an out Bonafide homosexual/poofter, and I know I have a quality of life that most Russian and American gays/bi's only dream about.
