What I think he was trying to say in a really simplified manner is that if you look at any other country that is at least slightly comparable to Russia in terms of land size, population and all these factors. You'll always end up with the same result.. which is. This could easily happen in the USA, Brazil, Argentina, China, India, you name it.
But yeah Russia in general is homophobic. Now don't get me wrong, I don't agree with this LGBTBSDyxCASD either but it's just the inevitable nature of the human kind and we're just getting started.. So more weird sht to come g. imo
I am against any wrong doing towards anyone or anything since hate and violence will most likely lead to another hate and violence but explain this to anyone in the 21st century..
