Putin will frown

Quoth the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion:

The games have always been a little gay. Let’s fight to keep them that way.

    A bunch of Canadian cities have decided to fly the rainbow flag at their city hall. And the Olympic stadium in Montreal is illuminated in rainbow colors.

    I don’t quite get why Russians are so homophobic. Look at Red Square, for example (particularly at night – try an image search), a chunk of Moscow so camp it makes Disneyworld look positively butch.

    I think I just died.

    Someone could do to remind Putin that the games started as a bunch of naked oiled up men wrestling.

    Yes, and Ottawa is one of them. :)

    What coincidence – or maybe not a coincidence: The advertisement on top of this blog post, as I see it right now, is for skeiv.no – “where lesbians, homosexuals and other twisted people meet”. (Here, “twisted” is my attempt at translating “skeiv” into English, clearly an antonym to “straight” – “slanted” might be equally appropriate.) The choice of this word seems a clear attempt at appropriating what might be seen as a slur and viewing it in a positive light instead. I wish the other advertisements here were as appropriate.
