    18 year old Yekaterina Lysikh of St. Petersburg, was hospitalized with bruises and
    a concussion after a group of men attacked her over her “lesbian appearance.”




    Members of the LGBT community and foreign migrants and regularly attacked with violence in Russia. Since this is tacitly approved of by the Putin regime and the Orthodox church, little is done about these attacks. In many cases, police won't even file a report or investigate such attacks because they know their superiors will dress them down for wasting police time and resources.
    Being allowed to beat up migrants and homosexuals, a right wing dream. No wonder why they love Russia so much

I could go on and on, but when they criticize the totalitarian aspects of Russia, which has become super trendy over the last couple weeks (conservative media obviously updated the script of the brain dead), all they're doing is reflecting a valid criticism directed at them. I've heard a number of Republicans tell Democrats recently that they're playing into Russia's hands by opposing Trump. If that isn't a diagnosable symptom of clinical psychosis, then I don't know what is.
    It's more than just simply noticing, it is complete fact. Because they are complete assholes. The American Taliban

    Every society and every state has an LGBT community. But not all treat their LGBT community equally the same.

    Sadly, many individuals are inculcated by the state or by politicians to hate people that are not of the majority.

    I would argue that in the 1970s and 80s, they stepped into an environment that was already awash in anti-gay attitudes and that they often found their own prejudices welcome.

    Oh, yes.

    When I used to read about gay bashing police reports, some of the suspects had names that belonged to other immigrant groups besides the Russians. And, of course, we have long had our own home-grown bashers.

    It is no secret that some of those bashers are terrified that they, too, may be gay.

    I've definitely seen that issue in play. Expanded general acceptance of LGBTQ people has made it easier for straight men to accept them, too, but it seems to me that most completely heterosexual men always had less of a problem with gay people than men who are not completely straight.

    Anyone who would do that to someone else's son or daughter.....




    Needs to have it done to them. I know that's wrong, but all I can see is MY son and daughter beat up, and it makes me angry.
