    Actually, they shouldn't be engaged in PDA regardless of whether they are homosexual or heterosexual. Maybe it's just my old fashioned military background but PDA is not professional and it's not wrong to request or even demand that participants refrain from it. If you gotta suck face, get a room.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    That's fair enough, except PDA also includes even holding hands.

    Activist schtick, like holding hands or hugging? Article actually lists both of those...

    Olympic athletes are not professionals nor are they in the military. They are simply athletes. Expecting them to be anything else is silly.

    I seem to remember that once upon a time - long ago - the Olympic Games concerned sports and athletics.

    The Olympic Village and the host cities have long been the scene of extraordinary sexual activity. You are bringing together the most physically fit, virile, young people on the planet and putting them in close quarters with each other for weeks at a time while upping their adrenaline and endorphin rush through competition. The moralist brigade can take a back seat to human nature and an Olympic tradition that goes back decades. If Russia is going to be this intolerant it can enjoy the public relations fiasco that will accompany it and set the standard for countries that will not be graced by the IOC for a long time to come.

    Case and point: The local Olympic committees and often the IOC have for years and years provided thousands of condoms free of charge to athletes when they arrive at the games.

    Yeah. That's not really necessary, is it? When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Russia, knock off the public displays of affection in respect for their culture and their laws. The athletes are only there for a few weeks. It's not too great a hardship to endure to eschew public displays of affection for a few weeks. If an athlete thinks it's too much for them to take, then they shouldn't go. Boycotting the Olympics over this is idiotic. It won't happen. Homosexual activists will be disappointed. They'll get over it.
