    This is no hissy fit. As long as you call it that you can join the drama league. That's irrational.

    Within country yes, not in a foreign land where you have no rights.

    Well it looks like one to me. Russia is not a free country and it just got a little less free. Boycotting does no good and we should show that gay people are just like everyone else and can even be athletes and not only girly men.

    You yourself said that the athletes are there for the nation. So they would have cover for at least an armband being shown.

    No, they wouldn't. That's exactly what Russia has said.

    If all our athletes were to wear the armband in protest. And Russia tried that then the games would be shut down.
