Russian Scientist Claims Vladimir Putin Is Gay — And The Evidence Is Overwhelming…Sorta


Moscow political scientist/tabloid columnist (apparently you can be both) Stanislav Belkovsky claims to have the “whole truth” on Vladimir Putin in a new biography which, among other things, claims the Russian president is a closet homosexual and misanthrope who prefers the company of animals to people.

Belkovsky says Putin’s alleged affair with a former gymnast/Olympic champion Alina Kabaeva was merely a Russian ruse to paint the prez as “macho” and a “sex bomb”:


Mission: accomplished.

According to Belkovsky, for Putin “sex and a sex life are alien” but he posits that Vlad may be “latently gay,” pointing to a “truly erotic photo session in which Putin and Prince Albert of Monaco posed topless with their fishing rods in their hands.”

Oh you mean this completely heterosexual display of bro-ing the fuck out?:


He does look super happy, though. But what could be more heterosexual than this?:


Or this?:


And of course, this — which is so straight I just got pregnant. And I’m a dude:

putin-pensiveBelkovksy claims these shots of butch queen realness were not staged for PR purposes, but rather, they represent the “real” Vladimir Putin.

“He flees from people and his obligations to nature,” Belkovsky writes, adding that his best friends and sole roommates are “Labrador Conny and the Bulgarian shepherd dog Buffy”:

Vladimir Putin

Yeah, right, like any gay man would name his dogs Conny and Buffy!


Anygay, there’s also Putin’s relationship with his handsome Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev:


Awww. Precious. Based on the novel U.S.S.R. by Sapphire.

Of course, latent homosexuality might explain why Puts is so gung-homo with his anti-gay propaganda law. Perhaps one doth protest too much:

putin-wink copy

Fully aware that this kind of talk amounts to borderline treason — or at the very least, some shaaaaaaady bull that if it was a cup couldn’t hold a drop of water — Belkovsky is careful to include this caveat: “for the lawyers among my readers…a cult figure among homosexuals is not automatically a homosexual himself.”

Tell that to Ricky Martin.

    I haaaaate this trend of saying anyone who is antigay is gay, isn’t that somewhat homophobic? It’s like episode of sitcoms where they would wear blackface to prove racism is wrong. A lot of people are just HOMOPHOBES, plain and simple.

    The first photo of Putin with the woman saying “Bitch Please” made me laugh out loud. I hope it’s true that he’s gay and comes out so all the anti-gay bullshit in Russian can’t stop immediately!

    @Pistolo: While social and psychological theories, based on work with mental patients and severely ego-dystonic homosexuals explained sexual orientation for some clinicians, no responsible research or analysis corroborated the resulting armchair speculation. Schools of psychology had a body of beliefs ranging from child rearing practices to learning models. When psychological theories were in vogue to “cure” homosexuals, reports of “cures” were extremely rare and supported by weak criteria such as “seriously thinking of going with the opposite sex.”81 Most psychoanalysts who saw homosexuality as a neurotic manifestation caused by faulty family interactions now reject this hypothesis.82 Sigmund Freud, founder of the psychoanalytic movement, never condemned homosexuality.83
    Studies do not support theories about father absence or faulty family interactions causing homosexuality. For example, no research supports there are more African-American homosexuals, where father absence is relatively higher than for caucasians. There are no more homosexuals in father-present versus father-absent families.84 There is a weak link to poor relationships with fathers, most likely the result of rejection of a gender incongruent child and emerging homosexuality.85 Particularly when comparing bisexuals, transsexuals, transvestites, and self-accepting and ego-dystonic homosexuals, researchers cannot ignore familial, community, religious, and social influences on sexual orientation expression.86 Even with a genetic or biological predisposition to homosexuality, cultural and personal influences should be considered when discussing sexual orientation.87

    In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality as a mental disease or personality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.88 Ego-dystonic homosexuality, unwanted homosexual urges in natural homosexuals, is psychopathological. Many psychologists and psychiatrists see homophobes as pathological with disordered personality traits.89 Using psychophysiological instruments, many homophobes become sexually aroused when viewing homoerotic materials. They are either unaware of the arousal or deny it.90 Homophobia is an important issue and often needs to be addressed to preserve the self-esteem of homosexuals.91 Through stigma management, some homosexuals establish personal growth and better self-esteem.92 Many researchers show self-accepting homosexuals are as psychologically healthy as heterosexuals.93 Particularly when introduced to materials about the biological basis for sexual orientation, attitudes toward homosexuals can be changed.94 Religiosity and level of education are negatively correlated with attitudes toward homosexuals and women and those who know sexual minority individuals appear to have more positive attitudes toward homosexuals and bisexuals than do men.95 Homophobia in some appears to be a developmental issue related to defensive styles used to manage a range of psychosexual developmental anxieties in boys and men.96 Homophobic males appear to have difficulty relating to males in general.97

    I know how it is when facts and not speculation are used. Do you?

    @Pistolo: @murphy0071: Why be so serious? Holy mother of god! So he is a homophobic ass. Nothing we don’t know so poke fun at the bastard. I have seen hairless cat that were better looking and I hate cats. Bitch please!!!!!

  • mezzacanadese

    Putin is so anti-gay that it’s difficult to think of him as gay himself. But it’s fun to have a laugh at his expense, although I personally wish he would dry up and blow away.

    So let’s see now, any male athletes who slap each other on the butt are seen as secretly gay. Any male who touches another male…gay. And now apparently any male who takes off his shirt and shows his bare chest publicly is a sign of being gay too.

    Sometimes, I think gays are more homophobic than the homophobes.

  • AuntieChrist

    @Kieran: Don’t you understand? To some gay folk everyone is a gay just waiting to happen…It only takes the right guy or girl to change you…Too bad that everyone is not gay…Certainly would fix that over population thing…

  • sean_brown21

    Wow! Is all I can say… wait that’s not entirely true. Eveyone knows he’s closeted with all the gay hating he does on a regular, the homophobia had to come from somewhere.

  • murphy0071

    @Kieran: Many gays, particularly during their adolescent and time of coming out, are very homophobic and repressed until they find themselves with a gay group that is accepting. Then the homophobia tends to reduce dramatically. Technically you are correct. People who merely hate homosexuals because of their background and religious nonsense are not true homophobes. They have no fear of homosexuals only a bigoted viewpoint towards them.
