    None of those are the rules though. Just don't perform any homosexual acts out in public and there shouldn't be a problem.

    It doesn't matter whether they care, it matters that we do.

    If I were an Olympic athlete from the United States, and I was told I wasn't welcome to compete as an American because of a government boycott, the first thing I'd do is ask the Russian government if they had any openings.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No it doesn't matter what we think. It's not our country.

    The requirements are the same, come to the games but don't be who you are. That's not the American Way.

    We can take a stand by some other method than boycotting the Olympics. I think that a patch or armband would do.

    No, it's theirs, and they can have it while we stay here. See how that works?

    the American way should be freedom

    and people like you should be ignored when you demand that others be punished just so you can feel good
