Deputy of the Russian State Duma — the lower house of parliament — and noted shithead Alexei Zhuravlyov has proposed amendments to the Family Code that will make “non-traditional sexual orientation” a basis for denying custody of children; other grounds include alcoholism, drug use and a history of violence, insanity and abuse.
“In the case when a parent has sexual contact with people of their own gender, the damage that can be inflicted on the psyche of a child is enormous,” Zhuravlyov, the author of the bill, wrote in his proposal to the Duma.
Claiming that 5 to 7 percent of people in Russia were of a “non-traditional sexual orientation,” Zhuravlyov wants to ban homosexual propaganda not only in the public realm, but “also in the family,” according to Gay Star News.
Once again, Russia’s precious children and their impressionable minds have been used as a scapegoat for blatant discrimination — discrimination, which, by the gay, does not exist in Russia, as per President Vladimir Putin. Those comparisons to Nazi Germany are becoming disturbingly more accurate.
The child custody bill, should it pass the State Duma, would be the third law limiting the rights of LGBT people this year alone. Back in June, the Duma unanimously passed the federal anti-gay propaganda law, followed by a law — also passed unanimously — banning adoptions from countries that have marriage equality.
Meanwhile, sponsor of the national propaganda bill and all-around piece of human garbage Elena Mizulina accused the West of “aggressively imposing” its social conduct on Russia with its “fetishizing of human rights, including those of sexual minorities.”
Yes, the West really gets off on giving people fair and equal treatment under the law. I’m hard right now just thinking of all those rights and privileges of being considered a real life human being.
In June, Mizulina said parliament should consider removing children from gay couples as “there is a high chance that this child will imitate the behavior of his parents.” Too bad parliament doesn’t consider removing kids from people who don’t know a goddamn thing about anything, since that’s a behavior that’s being imitated and perpetuated generation after generation.
What’s next, concentration camps or state-funded conversion therapy to purge Russia of the homosexual menace? Oh…wait. Fuck.
