Under Russia's gay propaganda law, any foreigner who is perceived to be promoting homosexuality would face a jail sentence of 15 days and deportation. Gay Pride parades end violent, bloody or in some cases in death every year after anti gay protestors show up to beat the shit out of the LGBT community. Russia does not deserve our support, our money or any of our attention for the 2014 Olympics. This law needs to be overturned and peoples BASIC civil rights need to be met. Gay or Straight why would ANYONE want to travel to or support a place where it is ok to treat any human being this way. If you are reading this and you do not identify as gay, I'm sure you know someone who is. Would you want that person to have to endure such pain, embarrassment and day to day torture for being who they are? Please do not watch the 2014 winter olympics or travel to Russia.

      It is conspicuous that lesbian and homosexual couples worldwide were brutally persecuted, often tortured, raped and killed, incarcerated, although they are live much happier together as heterosexual couples. Threaten these happy people worldwide men with their violence against women in heterosexual couples? This is precisely the fact. Homosexual men reject sexual violence against women and are often good friends of women. Lesbian women live together in peace with their children, without threat of domestic and sexual violence. So what is so terrible to live in lesbian and homosexual couples, I think in democratic countries should it be indifferent of sexual orientation and everyone can live the way he wants, especially the women.

      The brutality of Sochi's leaders is not in the olympic spirit. What a lousy venue.

      I'm MtF Lesbian, and I suppose all people should have the same rights because God created us like unique and different creatures but with the same rights. And neither another person, nor government, nor society could deprive us of our rights, especially, the right to love and to be loved because God is Love. I'm a Catholic but I'm LGBT member and should hide it every day because I suffer almost every day from mockeries, beating and humilation just because I have long hair and woman-like body. I haven't made an operation to change my sex and I don't take hormone pills, I just look like a booy with a woman-like body, soul and thinking. I'm married and have a ring in my finger but EVEN IN THIS CASE! EVEN WHEN I LOOK LIKE A NATURAL JUST WITH SOME ASPECTS OF A GAY! I'M SEVERELY DISCRIMINATED! What about other gays? They just try to pretend even more. It's not a life when one is pretending all the time, trying to hide one's homosexuality. I'm from Kazakhstan and I lived there 20 years. Now I live in Russia only 1 year. In Kazakhstan I have been maltreeted many times, and in Russia, too. I want to emigrate but many of gays which I know - no. They want to live in THEIR country and just be FREE and LOVED!

      Because Olympic Spirit is simply uncompatible with headspread to any collective of people.
