    I agree ... they should simply treat the Olympics as international space ... But I'd advise the gay athletes not to venture too far from the site or to be very careful ...

    I don't know him personally, so I wouldn't Judge his character. But he was one of the worst Presidents ever and he is certainly the worst ex-President ever.

    Did anyone pay attention to what the Russian law is? It's about promoting non-traditional sexual behavior in front of minors. No one will get arrested for being gay. But if you can't leave your homosexual activist schtick at home, you might get hassled. If you're there to compete, compete. If you want to turn the Olympics into your personal homosexual advocacy soapbox, you might end up in jail with the Soviet version of Bubba, not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Just like they always have.

    Olympic space acts a little bit like mini embassies to a great degree.

    I didn't say it was more important or WAY more important, I just said it was more attractive as a reason for a boycott. Like it or not, fighting against descrimination of gays gets more media and public sympathy than trying to round up someone who's blown the whistle on government spying on their own innocent citizens and the citizens of other sovereign nations throughout the world. Every nation has gay citizens and many support them. I can't name many nations who support the US spying on them and their citizens, can you?

    Judging by the results of the Universiade in Kazan, athletes U.S. are afraid they will lose all competitions. Therefore looking for an excuse, - do not go on olympiad in Sochi. Athletes United States, are gays, in addition to that and are cowards.

    Russia is a mess. A horrible crime rate, corruption at nearly every level. There's a reason Russian cars are so often carrying dash cameras.
    *laughs* United States is at war, of course, only with equals. In Russia there was a civil war many years. Hence a dead economy. (However, you will soon learn it all themselves ("A horrible crime rate, corruption at nearly every level."). With such a debt ....) I wonder how long it will take the United States to recover? Or the United States fall apart?

    So heterosexual athletes shouldn't show any heterosexual affection either right? I mean, they are there to compete not to promote the hetersoxual agenda correct?
