Harvey Fierstein Suggests His House For Winter Olympics, Won’t Arrest Anyone For Enjoying Sex

Harvey_Fierstein_3_Shankbone_Metropolitan_Opera_2009Fuck Sochi! There’s more than enough snow at my place to hold the Olympics and I don’t arrest you for enjoying sex…and I don’t kill dogs! …And my plumbing works! …And rainbow flags are welcome! Just leave the Russian Vodka at home and don’t tell Rat-Putin where we are.”


— Harvey Fierstein, who’s been very outspoken against Russia’s antigay laws, comes up with an 11th hour solution to Sochi on his Facebook page

    What about all the persecution of minority gays in Africa, Harvey? Or don’t they matter….

  • Stefano

    This is not because there is persecution in Africa we have to stop talking about persecution in Russia.

  • GermanPenguin

    @balehead: If Nigeria were hosting the Olympics, then we would talk about the gays in Africa, not that they’re being ignored at the moment, they’re not. But, we are well capable on focusing on more than one region at once.

    He just wants to be loved. Is that so wroooooooooong?!

  • right0boy

    I can’t tell if I’m reading it in his voice, or if I’m reading it with John Stuart imitating his voice.


    @Merv: I actually like Harvey’s quote. But I like your response even better… ;)

  • Christiano

    I’m very much in favor of Harvey’s proposal. Instead of awarding gold, silver, and bronze medals for event winners, I suggest that they be replaced by gold anal beads, clear fleshjacks and bronze dildos.

    @Merv: In bale’s case…. yes… it’s wrong, lolol.

  • Dakotahgeo

    Harvey Fierstein’s idea is an idea I can live with very well!

  • DShucking

    I don’t know how we can complain about trolls like balehead when we keep feeding them. Get a clue, ladies. He’s a troll!

  • jonjct

    @jonjct: REALLY? Speak for yourself, then… :(
