    You missed the sarcasm emoticon in there somewhere. Caelum's post regarding violence summarizes why the situation of gays really is terrible. It also should be added that kids who have been raised by loving parents (who happen yo be LGBT) are also being taken away from them.

    How can the situation be considered "not that terrible" when it is against the law for an LGBT person to even claim they aren't abnormal?

    Or to Ukraine. The EU-friendly party Svoboda loves the gay people so much (Sarcasm).

    Yes, that's the solution. Send them to places that are even more oppressive and discriminatory so that they appreciate Russia's oppression and discrimination. "We won't kill you... We'll just throw you in jail, turn a blind eye when violence is inflicted upon you, remove your children, and treat you as second class citizens.... that's all. Could be worse!"

    I don't see how these two things are related. Even the fifth or sixth place finisher is allowed to make statements about matters of public interest.

    The same can be said for Mao placing 3rd. Do you honestly think Wagner or Mao cares about what the Russian media thinks of her?

    The gay people (and Ashley Wagner too) do not see the instrumentalization for the anti-russian-government propaganda. It is a nasty game and the gay rights do not play any role at all.

    but unlike Wagner
    Mao is level headed and is only in it for the Games, Mao's aim is OGM not parading non related speeches

    They may have already realized that they are used as instrument for different purposes. However, I believe they are very glad to be used and use each other to reach their different goals. One thing is certain that the hype in the west is far from the reality in Russia.

    What do you think the reality is for LGBT people in Russia? So all the news reports about violence, torture, etc. are all a hoax?

    So, racial profiling and police brutality isn't a thing? And racism no longer exists in the US?

    Mao placed 3rd, and Japan can send 3. Ashley placed 4th, and the USA can only send 3. Not the same thing.

    I was referring to Mao and Ashley having other skaters ahead of them at Nationals and criticized for being "only the 3rd ranked Japanese or 4th ranked American").

    Honestly if the Russian media criticizes Ashley or Mao, whatever... at least the US and Japan have 3 spots (thanks to Wagner and Asada).

    Wagner May find that her "heroic act" of painting rainbow fingernails and wearing rainbow earrings will fall into a pool of rainbow color uniforms which the Russian Olympic volunteers wear.

    6 entire days of rest on this thread since anyone posted anything here, and this is the best you came up with?
    Let's all have an honest look at this ugly little monster hidden inside us that would motivate us to do something like that, and let's see it for what it is.
