What black people rights? I keep hearing that racism is still very much alive You may pass as many laws as you like but the anti-gay stance will remain in people's minds no matter what.

or maybe we shouldnt care about war and famine because they are "pretty much settled" as you said?
That's not what I said, read carefully my post again.

Do people really think this is a statement? To me, it's just a normal way to congratulate/express your happiness to your close friend (at least in Central-Eastern Europe)

Yeah that image may now have been taken out of context But their kiss looked more than a cheek peck but I guess an image can do that.

If you go east from Poland they have a massively backward cultural attitude towards alternative life styles it would seem.

Yeah they have, hey they could probably milk it a little more if they wanted provided they don't want future political careers.
