Vladimir Putin reassures the world about Russia's acceptance of gays at Sochi by stereotyping gays as pedophiles

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Here's what Putin said when asked about Russia's view of gays in light of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, the implication being that gays might not be welcome given Russia's anti-gay laws:

One can feel calm and at ease. Just leave kids alone, please.

In other words, gays are pedophiles, but it'll be fine for them at Sochi if they don't molest children.

What an awesome guy. What an awesome country.

Remind me again why we're sending our athletes there, and why it's such a great idea for us to be contributing to the national self-glorification that comes with hosting the Olympics?

Although, since it's happening regardless, New York magazine has a great idea: "For every boneheaded statement Putin makes over the next few weeks, President Obama should add another last-minute gay member to the U.S. delegation."

Yup, stick it to the bigots.

  • I can't wait to see the Daily Shows coverage of ridiculous propaganda filled question and answer charade. What a mess these Olympics are going to be.
