Russian parliament passes law banning 'LGBT propaganda' among adults

MOSCOW, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Russia's parliament approved on Thursday a bill that widens a prohibition of "LGBT propaganda" and restricts the "demonstration" of LGBT behaviour, making any expression of an LGBT lifestyle almost impossible.

Under the new law, which still needs the approval of the upper house of parliament and President Vladimir Putin, any action or information that is considered an attempt to promote homosexuality - whether in public, online, or in films, books or advertising - could incur a heavy fine.

Previously, the law had outlawed only promotion of LGBT lifestyles aimed at children. The new bill also bans the "demonstration" of LGBT behaviour to children.

Lawmakers say they are defending traditional values of the "Russian world" against a liberal West they say is determined to destroy them - an argument also increasingly being used by officials as one of the justifications for Russia's military campaign in Ukraine.

Authorities have already used the existing law to stop gay pride marches and detain gay rights activists. Rights groups say the new law is intended to drive so-called "non-traditional" LGBT lifestyles practised by lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people out of public life altogether.

In America we assume people can distinguish between news and propaganda. Used to be, anyway.

They seem terribly upset. On this site, the only people upset with this law are the Russia haters.

“Right now, I’m actually jealous of Russia.”

How much is Putin paying you to say that? No CONSERVATIVE would ever support such a law.

(my attempt to imitate a Russia hater - not easy to do here, but they’ll try)

Why do they want us to hate Russia the powerful people in this country?

Is it because Russia offends their sexuality?

That is a hill no one should want to die on.

When we’ve descended to fighting on that level we are goners, we live in Jonestown and the Kool Aid is being dispensed.

I am on Russia’s side on this. De-normalize perversion. Here in America, our f^ckwitz population doesn’t even have the get up and go to cancel their Disney subscription, or quit going to their parks.

All that evil needs to succeed is that decent people sit around with their thumbs up their a$$e$,

I’m sure a lot of people will be on here begging for the mighty boot of the American government to impose such restrictions here.

I for one am a conservative. America was founded on the idea that “I may hate what you have to say, but I will die for your right to say it.”

No man in a free country should ever face government punishment for saying what he believes.

Remember the Cold War era anti-American trope about "decadent democracy"?

It has come true beyond the wildest dreams of the Communists who said it.

The pro-Zelenskyites are cheering more stripes than just blue over yellow.

Apparently, Russian soldiers rape conscripts. It’s not “g@y” as long as you are the pitcher, not the catcher. Russians are brutal when it comes to training their conscripts at the boot camp, it’s known as Dedovshchina. We can see the results of this kind of training in the war in Ukraine.

Looks like Russia is going to be banning half of American and western movies.

Seems like all movies being produced now have at least one gay or lesbian couple with kissing and touching and suggestive sexual scenes.
