Feel the need to share this. I was utterly shocked to find out that a progressive, well developed country like Russia allowed such discrimination against a people.
I saw this and was heart broken and infuriated by the total lack of human compassion and tolerance. To see someone who had survived being stabbed for being a lesbian talk about the utter hate people have towards her was unreal.
To think you could be killed for loving the wrong person. What sickened me more was the fact that on film are politicians enticing hatred and violence against a minority. Didn’t the holocaust start out with persecution like this?
Calling someone a “faggot”, “pedophile” or “queer” is not acceptable in a modern progressive society. It makes me sad to think that Russia who fought the Nazi’s due to the horrific crimes they were committing are now standing by while people in “Mother Russia” are being victimized.
Have a watch of the below documentary and tell me what you think.
All I can say is I will never visit Russia and will never tolerate this behavior.
