In Gay We Trust
Femen activists were acting yesterday as half naked nuns and spraying Jesus’s ‘holy sperm’ when 100,000 crazy catholics took to the street against legislation allowing gay marriage in Paris. I love these Ukranian topless activists. They are fiery, fearless and always for the right cause.
RT described how Femen activists were assaulted by anti gay marriage demonstrators.
As protesters tried to push the topless feminists away scuffles erupted. Police had to use teargas to disperse the crowd.
Police and LGBT activists had to surround the Femen women to protect them from indignant demonstrators. The topless activists were later taken to a police station.
Femen called those who “attacked” them “religious nationalists,” saying that their action “In gay we trust” was “aimed at spreading progressive ideas of civil and sexual freedom into religious people’s minds.”
Activists also claimed that two Femen protesters were injured during the skirmish, with one losing a tooth and another allegedly having her nose broken.
The movement reacted with threats of revenge.
“Femen promises not to forget this incident and to take revenge on the organizers in the best Christian tradition: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” they wrote on their webpage.
French President Francois Hollande promised that he would legalize gay marriage and adoption of children by gay couples. It will surely happen. France already legalized gender-neutral civil unions in 1999. I am not worried about gay rights in a country like France. But I feel proud of Femen for being at the right place at the right time to oppose insane people. There are many insane people in every country, but unfortunately every country does not have many angry and courageous women like Femen activists.
