    Flying the LGBT flag instead of the city/province/Canadian flag is making a point because of the Olympics.

    Maybe if Obama hadn't surrounded himself with incompetent, second rate people in his administration, Putin wouldn't be the most powerful man in the world today.

    But I digress.

    Buggery isn't illegal in Russia. Russia is cracking down on LGBT activist who are trying to force the acceptance of their life style upon the vast majority of the Russian people. Like what has happened in America.

    Here's how far Russia's anti-buggery laws go, they enacted a law in 2013 prohibiting any positive mention of homosexuality in the presence of minors, including online. That's it. otherwise what happens in West Hollywood and San Fransico happens in Moscow or Sochi.

    I agree. The gay community is what, 1.3% of the population? One that "just wants to be equal" but seem to want a whole lot more than 1.3% of the spotlight. It's getting annoying actually. We get it, your gay. Good for you. Now can we get back to everything else?

    that's big of them...

    Back when I was in high school, a boy and girl couldn't hold hands. Yep I got suspended for three days for holding hands with my girlfriend. So did she.

    You couldn't even kiss on campus. So we just assumed you couldn't have sex on campus either.

    We only had one known gay on campus and he wasn't that concerned with the no holding hands rule. His nickname was Buttman.

    So why don't you just offer the same protections others have and be done with it. The gay population is 3% but probably higher and growing.

    so your real problem is how russia deals with activists who disagree with the government IN GENERAL, not just for this specific issue. they don't allow peaceful protests against ANY law, not just this one. so nothing special there.

    and if there is a gay person in russia who is in jail JUST for being gay then that is outrageous and wrong. I just haven't heard of any such cases. Feel free to enlighten me.

    Well Russia doesn't exactly have a trustworthy justice system, I can guarantee every person charged under this unjust law are being arrested for being gay. That is the purpose of the law.

    we're going in circles here: I understand they are making a statement. My point is that this statement seems nothing more than an empty feel good measure.
