    Annnnnnnnnnnyway. Let’s get this thread back on topic.


    This law largely expands on a previous law, so pretty much covers all LGBT+ representation. It will be illegal to show any sort of queer relationship in any media.


    I suspect this law is coming up now as part of Putin’s Anti-West push. Anything the west does will be seen as wrong so Russia will do the opposite. The west is pro-LGBT+ rights, well then Russia will be anti them.

    AlexNV [2169710]

    They might go back to communism .. first they restricted the internet to promote more propaganda , after they restricted the press more and some of their celebrities fled the country, now they are taking away from the ppl the other liberties, like LGBT rights... the next one might be a ban on abortions.
    On channels like russia1 they are promoting, in an aggressive way, the idea that all others are satanists ...

    mrnoob2 [2770824]

    Yep communism, famous for taking away LGBT and women's rights...

    You know the lockdown shit that happened in the USSR was in defense against Western sponsored counter revolution right? Same shit Russia is doing now, going on the defensive, except at least in this case Putin has responsibility for starting the fighting.
    Can you elaborate?

    I’d be surprised if they went back to full communism, or even the fake not really communism, just a load of oligarchs getting rich thing they had going on before. 


    I see it going towards a modern day China model. Extreme censorship and removal of “wrong” ideas and ideals.


    They will struggle though as they don’t have the years of indoctrination China does, and brain drain will force their young skilled workers to move to more liberal states in the EU. They will have to lock their borders or lose a lot of skilled people.

    On which bit? 

    I mean, if you're wanting an example of counterrevolution, just look at the collapse of the USSR. Both Lenin and Stalin wrote many letters about fighting bureaucratic counterrevolution within the Party itself. Eventually party counterrevolution won and Yeltsin collapsed the USSR against the democratic will of the people.

    You phrase this as a genuine desire to keep things healthy and avoid insulting each other, and I am very much in favor of both of those things, so in that spirit, Faether/Awara has specifically requested not to be called dude, bro, man, etc. a couple of times now. I make no assumptions about whether these were honest mistakes or deliberate button-pushing attempts - I just thought it worth mentioning, generally, for whoever needs to read it, that maintaining healthy discussion is easier when one does not push buttons that don't require pushing.

    Odin-All-Father [2010524]

    You could ask my faction or people I know IRL, I call everyone bro dude man mate bud geezer or whatever, whether they’re male or female is irrelevant, they’re not insults nor are they intended as such bro, they also don’t warrant hostile or nasty responses.

    if anyone honestly believes me calling ANYONE dude or bro is a trigger or a troll attempt then idk how they manage day to day life, nor how they manage to go anywhere on the internet without foaming at the mouth.

    all I’ve been saying is people need to chill out and talk nicely to eachother, or atleast have healthy discussion without the childish bickering.
    no matter what thread you go on on here it’s the same people hurling the same insults at eachother like a bunch of parrots down an alley.
    Well, I get the part about just calling everyone dude - I tend to call people dude all the time, too. I just think if someone's gone out of their way to ask not to be called something, the polite thing to do is to not call them that. Like... if you know someone named Jessica, and she reaaaalllllyyyy hates it when people call her Jessy, you would either try to suppress the urge to call her Jessy or expect a certain degree of hostility from her in return. (It's an easier decision to make in text, since we have delete and edit-post buttons.)

    If only you were aborted

    Odin-All-Father [2010524]

    Man, you need to step away from the forums if you’re getting triggered this hard dude.

    This section is full of trolls trying to troll other trolls, but guys like you wishing death or non existence on other people are just showing you’re losing, take a breather bro.

    Faether [2732904]

    I'm doing the same thing yous are doing, minus the cheap bigotry~

    Odin-All-Father [2010524]

    I come in here once or twice a week the past couple months because I realised there’s never any healthy discussion, just people insulting eachother etc, not worth it.

    but I definitely have not made ill wishes or wanted the death of someone else on here when I have been or am in here, so no dude, it’s not the same thing. Chill out bro :)

    Faether [2732904]

    Like I said, the same thing minus the cheap bigotry~

    but do you, parasite
    Odin: chill out, ignore the trolls

    Faether: you are a parasite because of your irl profession

    He definitely follows me around downvoting anything the system will let him, regardless of content. I'm not sure if he realizes that, even if I cared about karma, it stops counting downvotes from the same person after a certain number of times. Either way, it only makes me sing the jingle jangle song louder.

    You downvoted me saying people need GEE-zusss. Which was a half assed response about literally nothing.

    I'm literally thinking you're just another dude who I can't believe that that's the sperm that won.

    It's pretty clear his "disagreement" is with the fact that people call him a whiner when he whines and not with the actual posts he's disliking. An object lesson in the most asinine and impotent form of protest.

    I agree he is targeting a minority like he has with muslims in his country in the past labeling them terrorists to get the Russian people angry   and united behind him as a diversion to the war he is losing.

    I wonder who he will target next

    The government of the Russian Federation has taken a hardline anti-LGBT+ stance for a very long time. If it's a distraction from government incompetence, then this is a government that's never felt particularly confident in its ability to look competent. I think it's somewhere between divide-and-conquer tactics and sincerely-held shitty opinions.

    They might go back to communism .. first they restricted the internet to promote more propaganda , after they restricted the press more and some of their celebrities fled the country, now they are taking away from the ppl the other liberties, like LGBT rights... the next one might be a ban on abortions.
    On channels like russia1 they are promoting, in an aggressive way, the idea that all others are satanists ...
