Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

We won a bronze!

Our celebrations might seem disproportionate to the achievement, but it's only the 23rd ever medal GB have won at a Winter Olympics

I loathe that she is pulling an Obama. What I mean is that he was always for gay marriage, yet when running for public office became completely neutral and only when it benefited him, did he embraced the homosexual cause. She is doing exactly the same; keeping her mouth shut and being as politically correct as MSNBC because its suites her selfish interests/agenda. We all know that she is for gay rights + marriage so its kind of frustrating not seeing her take a role active role rather than just dodge questions left,right, and center.
I do get what she does that, its just that seeing the degree of vileness in Russia and the existence of abominations like 'Occupy Pedophilia' enrages me.
And if she'd go openly supporting lgbt, the same people who is attacking her right now would still complain that she is using the case only for her personal popularity gain.
There are things that cant be judged as in their current states. Mostly because we dont know all the motives and behind the curtain happenings. One wrong word and Putin would cross her name to even enter Sochi let alone the opening ceremony.
Therefore I cant dislike her any way if she does something for personal gain, be that emotional or material.

All I know she is already lightyears better than muppets like that voting-droid Safin. And if you wait a little bit, she might even upload a 12" shiny black strap-on as her instagram profile photo.

In the opening ceremony they pulled the nations parade after just two scenes and the athletes were thankful not to wait for 2 hours till they go on stage. The maps were very good and respectful act towards every nation of the world.
As for the gay rights - in EU they have accepted all the rights for the gays. But what is worrying me are certain politics with some books that are not what I expect from equal rights: "How to grow to be a gay" - with pictures of boys with girlish toys and girls with pistols and cars. This will be proposed for school programs. I don't think children must be thought something they don't understand from an early age and it is very dangerous way of educating as children are not fully developed persons. There is a party of the pedophiles in Holland and they suggest children from 12 y.o. have the right to participate in pornography if they want. I don't want to continue with other examples in European countries but I am wondering whose rights are violated. I have examples with my friends who are discriminated when applying for jobs because gays are preferred not because of their qualities but because they are generally supposed to be discriminated??? So who is the victim here?? Aristotle had said that tyranny and democracy are the two extreme ways of ruling but the best system is that in the middle - so too much democracy is also destroying society. People can think about that. I myself can't decide which is the best. I generally accept gay marriages but I don't have friends who are raised in gay families so I don't have a vision over this situation.
nothing to add here from me, only a little thing, no offense.
There is no such thing as "gay family". Its a family. Period. Parents can be gay, kids can be gay, cousins can be gay, its still same notion that connects people together.
This is what majorly infuriates me all the time, the constant need of invent (and over-use) terms that already exists, just so then they can pointing fingers to another minority.

I think you could look at it in 2 ways - you could be disappointed she hasn't actively protested, or you could be happy that she has made it known that she does not endorse the policy. I prefer to take the latter option.

(As a side note, it massively irritates me how people are using this issue to score political points over Russia, and how Americans are trying their utmost to undermine the entire Olympics - I highly doubt it is truly gay rights that is on their mind).
A big bow down for this post! Agree from word to word!!!

Would give you good rep if I could, but instead I'll just say-I completely agree with this, word to word, especially the last sentence

As far as Maria challening Russian president Putin on gay rights it should not be expected from her. She has never been controversial. Maria is in Sochi to support Sochi and Russian athletes and that is so good of her. She is not a politican. We all know she supports gay rights and gay marriage. Obama made the calculated choice to support gay marriage when he was running for re election and it looked like Romney might out raise him money wise. Once Obama publicly supported gay rights and gay marriage in summer 2012 he got alot more money and ended up with approximately 1 billion dollars to Romney's approximately 500 million dollars. That is a huge difference and it paid off for Obama. But it was a calculated political move without a doubt. These types of actions should not be expected from Maria Sharapova. That is just not fair. Masha is having a great career and a great life and she supports gay rights and gay marriage. She just doesn't do it vocally. That is her choice.
