The bill was proposed by the dominant United Russia party and passed Wednesday by a 27 to 1 vote, with one abstention, in the first of three required readings. It calls for a fine of up to $1,600 for “public actions aimed at propaganda of pederasty, lesbianism, bisexuality, and transgenderism among minors.”

The main push is to prevent kids from being submersed to the "propaganda" of the Gay movement...

Among minors.. Promotion of..

So it's legal to be gay and to write about being gay in Russia. It's illegal to write "propaganda" aimed at promoting these acts aimed at minors.

Putin probably believes that Homosexuality is a decadent, western disease and it does not effect men that fight with bears and bend iron bars with their teeth

What are they thinking? Out of sight out of mind?
This is absolutely ridiculous

How did this slip through the cracks? In this day and age I didn't think it was possible.

They fine "public actions aimed at propaganda of pederasty, lesbianism, bisexuality, and transgenderism among minors.”, will they consider homosexual couples strolling down the street propaganda and fine them just because kids might be in the area?

It's just another dividing tactic, alienating people from themselves and the people they should be close to, and instead forcing them into a mold.

Let me ask you guys something..

Are you parents?

Do you want people writing literature promoting a gay lifestyle and distributing it to your kids?

I don't care if my kids turn out gay or straight - I'm ok with whatever. But I wouldn't want them to have free access to literature that promotes a gay lifestyle until they have reached a certain level of maturity.

This isn't a ban on homosexuality, or even WRITING about being homosexual. This is a ban on literature targeted at teens.

Before you condemn it, ask yourself if you think this information should be available to your kids. I sure don't.

I don't understand what you object to.
Kids are surrounded by straight influences and literature all the time, it doesn't change the kids that turn out to be gay straight. So why or what part of it do you feel uncomfortable about?
No innocence of childhood is lost by letting kids know gay people exist and it's okay to be gay. No harm done at all.

I don't think they are trying to hide from kids and teens that gay people exists - they are trying to prevent exploitative literature and events. For the record some of my best friends are gay. My oldest and most trusted friend came out in Jr High School. I'm not homophobic by any means. If the goal is to hide adult material, either images or words or acts, from the eyes of younger people, I see no problem with that. For consistency's sake you should know that I also don't agree with overly graphic displays or writings about heterosexual relationships either.

Have you ever been to a gay pride parade? I have, like 8 years in a row. I'll tell you right now that I wouldn't let my kids go until they are old enough to see some of the things that go on there. Scantily clad drag queens making out isn't something I want to expose my 10 year old daughter to. That's all I'm saying. I believe in everyone's right to expression and personal choice, but I also think that groups can be insensitive and there is no problem in my mind creating rules to make sure these groups act responsibly.

So anyway, a lot of people are really over reacting to this assuming that it's a ban on gay people when it's not. The OP's title is misleading, but a quick perusal of the attached article should clear that up.

Well the sad story is that most kids in Russia is that they are Homosexuality
even a priest came out stated dont be upset that most kids of ours are or have a feeling of Homosexuality.

I think i saw an article of it, i guess this one of trying to prevent it.

I agree young kids need to be shielded as much as possible from adult related issues like sex.

To raise young kids awareness of homosexuality within society as being a normal thing doesn't require the use of sordid language.

Gay parades don't go past schools do they?
What's that got to do with teaching kids in school about gay people?

I was just trying to show you an example.. It's an extreme example, maybe, but I wanted to illustrate a situation where this law would be a positive thing. There are some things in the gay (and straight) community that definitely shouldn't be viewed by children.

I don't know that schools should "teach about" gay relationships, but maybe just acknowledge their existence and legitimacy. I still believe the most important education a kid gets is from home, and it's a parent's choice what and when they want their kids to know about.

Yes. I am so sick of seeing these Young Adult novels like Twilight rubbing their heterosexuality in our faces. We get it, you're straight (and you love vampires)! Shut up about it, no one else cares!

We live in a Heterosexual society. Don't get me wrong I tolerate homosexuals(tolerate means I don't like them, I don't accept them, I tolerate them up to a very fine line), but that said this is our civilization and we aren't going to give it up.

This is why I am against gay marriage. Give gay's an inch and they will try to outlaw heterosexuality. If it ever becomes a "them or us" moment, it won't take long to decide how I feel.

Wow, you see something like this and THATS your response? You know America isnt perfect but were damn sure not that far behind on civil rights......

You see something like this where people are GENUINELY held back, and other countries like Africa where there are gov condoned killings of gays, and your response is ANTI AMERICAN?

A place where you can have gay dance clubs

A place where you can have gay pride parades

A place where in some states you can INDEED get married

A place where if you are committed a crime against, the perps get worse time because its a hate crime


There are TONS of countries out there that would love to have the Civil Rights Americans have here......

Give me a break
