Russia’s overly macho posturing TODAY with regard to homosexuality though contentious is in fact tongue in cheek isn’t it, in that they KNOW that homosexuality [was rampant among the elite of both ancient Greece and Rome] is NEVER going to totally go away, however isn’t their focus on making very very sure that it will not be in any way normalized, viewed as socially acceptable/fashionable behaviour within any level of Russian society? What would happen ANYWHERE on this planet if any attempt was made by their government/status quo to make intimacy/sexual relations with the opposite as opposed to the same gender illegal as opposed to the natural normal WAY TO GO it is for most people [which is why that same gender relationships LUNACY will NEVER EVER happen]? With regard to the 2 main bastions of social control the Church and State isn’t REALITY the fact that these monoliths have little or no option other than to sanction ALL of the State’s directives in general, including those with regard to totally marginalizing homosexuality? A point that I have never discussed with ANY of my gay [or even bisexual/gays with their own children] friends and associates is the very obvious fact that if suicide is the most sincere and permanent form of self criticism; isn’t a devoutly homosexual lifestyle/total abhorrence of the intimate sexual contact still necessary [when it works as opposed to just how distressed many loving couples become when it doesn’t] for propagation of the species with/through the opposite gender/GENETIC SUICIDE, very obviously no. 2? From that perspective if for whatever reason some people are naturally inclined or choose to exist in such a very very obvious fundamentally self critical manner, are willing to sacrifice their human right to procreate add 50% of their DNA to humanity’s genetic matrix; who are WE [80-90% of the population] to tell them that they are wrong? However isn’t it a complete mystery [to me and most people] as to why some of them want this deviant lifestyle which I believe they have a human right to live if they choose to, legalised/formally sanctioned by the Church and State [with the West’s current POWER ELITE not just going with but projecting that flow as a feasible/viable alternative as opposed to just letting them get on with it] when it cannot naturally/normally do anything to create and sustain the family units that are still the nucleus of the communities, villages, towns and cities that make up human civilization and culture in the 21st century? I think the politicians are very cynically using the Gay marriage sanction or no as a smokescreen to distract the masses from the current socio-economic MELTDOWM, worldwide, as this issues is in the main meaningless for most people [over 90% of the populace], isn’t it, or is the so all pervasive projection and promotion homosexuality is currently receiving in the West a far from subtle initiative/ploy by the POWER ELITE with regard to population reduction/yet another means of culling the defectives in their ranks [far more discretely than Hitler did the NAZI brownshirts/gay faction in the night of the long knives] and the masses in one? Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
