Vladimir Putin Just Officially Banned Same-Sex Marriage in Russia And Those Who Identify As Trans Are Not Able To Adopt
I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that, included within the Amendments outlawing same-sex marriage and adoption protocols, is this: **the new rules reset Putin’s term limits as president, meaning he can serve an additional two six-year terms in office.**
Not surprised this would happen, you can already go to prison in Russia for showing your child anything related to LGBT+ in general. Plus they were going to give Miitopia for the Nintendo Switch a Mature Rating due to same sex marriage in the game.
This, from the man who brought us the *I-Get-To-Be-President-Forever Show*?^^^^Shocked, ^^^Shocked, ^^Shocked, ^Shocked, SHOCKED.
Man, things must be pretty noisy in Russia if he felt that he had to do this on top of massing 100K troops near Ukraine just to get people to look elsewhere...
This, not a week after [Putin signed laws enabling him to stay in power until 2036](https://www.france24.com/en/europe/20210405-putin-signs-law-enabling-him-to-stay-in-power-until-2036).Red meat for the base.
He’s purposely doing to distract from the news of Navaly’s hunger strike and hospitalisation and the news that he’s sending more troops to Ukraine to continue his invasion.
Remember folks: Identity politics is used by the rich to keep the poor angry at each other instead of the wealthy. This is a distraction from Navalny, pure and simple.
Why is this such a big deal for him? What is he hiding?
When voting is irrelevant, you can do whatever the fuck you want. I don’t know why anyone could be surprised by this.
How could he ban something that has never been allowed?
Married couples (and marriage) is reasonably beneficial to a country's GDP. And given how woeful Russia's GDP is, I'm surprised that they don't want all the help they can get.
None of this was ever allowed in the fist place.
Wow, who knew he was a regressive homophobic douchebag...
Am I supposed to downvote because I hate what the post says or upvote to spread awareness?
The question is, is he to blame or the Russian people? I sometimes feel like a politician can get away with absolutely anything in the eyes of conservatives as long as he’s *against liberals*. So I guess he’s just covering his ass up from all the crime that he’s doing.
Amazing how this Russian authoritarian dictator's politics align so well with the American far right's.
Wow. Looking at this comment section makes me realize how truly awful some people are. To anyone who approves of this, you make me sick.
Eh we had that banned in Poland for years now, I'm surprised a country such as Russia hasn't banned it earlier or even legalized it in the first place, that is not to say I am for the ban, I'm just showing my surprise at this
He also wants them and anybody else he hates dead. But he is limited (so far) in what he can do and still stay in power.
Comment section weird af. He just signed parliament law which removes inconsistency on same-sex marriage, which was never directly forbidden, but still denied to citizens(unless they're converted trans people, since gender change is legal in Russia).Basically this law doesn't do anything new.
Is it just me or is the entire world going backwards??? 🤔
This kind of bs seriously affects the children who have no family and desperately need one.Children and babies who for different reasons are born into or have had to grow up in an unstable environment or for some reason cannot be with their bio family really don’t give a flying f*** whether people are hetero, gay or bi.All they need and want is a home and a family who show them love and respect, they want a roof over their heads where they’re kept warm, safe and fed.Considering that there is soo many people in this world who are so inept and have children biologically when they should be kept well away from being responsible for anything at all I find it’s completely ludicrous that only because of their sexuality people who want to adopt children are deemed inadequateIt literally boils my blood because laws like this aren’t for the child’s welfare, it’s only down to bigotry and hatred
> According to a report in the AP, the new rules also reset Putin’s term limits as president, meaning he can serve an additional two six-year terms in office.
I remember a talk I saw, it was an author of Russian history. Basically the premise was “and then it got worse”.
This man is Trumps wet dream
Is he going to ban infertile hetero couples too or....
Just as he moves 100k troops near the Ukrainian boarder.. hmmm interesting timing.
Don't tell the Republicans, they will fight to make Putin the next US president and Trump the Vice president
What a scumbag! Of course that’s nothing new Putin is a walking talking human rights violation.
Lol just go extinct you goddamn dinosaurNo one cares that you used to rough up helpless people for the KGBWow what a tough guy
Damn, that’s gay.
Russia does not seem like a friendly place.
I don't understand why there is no article for every public execution of gay ppl in Saudi Arabia. Why nobody Cares ? It's very important country with a lot of commercial relationship with Europe and USA. And we talk about PUBLIC EXECUTIONS guys...
So just another Tuesday really....
Daily reminder that putin is an asshole
What a bitch
