Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed transgender ideology on Thursday, claiming that it is a "crime against humanity" for children to change their gender.
Well, Putin, I think any person with common sense would agree with you!
He argued at the annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club in the Black Sea resort of Sochi that children being “taught that a boy can become a girl and vice versa” is gruesome and on the verge of being “a crime against humanity.”
According to the Washington Post, he also “suggested that transgender rights supporters were demanding an end to ‘basic things such as mother, father, family or gender differences.'”
In the same speech, Putin touted the “spiritual values and historical traditions” while cautioning against “sociocultural disturbances” emanating from Western liberals, whom he said believe in “the aggressive deletion of whole pages of their own history, reverse discrimination against the majority in the interests of minorities … constitute movement toward public renewal.”
“It’s their right, but we are asking them to steer clear of our home. We have a different viewpoint,” Putin said.
Vladimir Putin sparked international outrage in 2013 when he signed anti-“gay propaganda” legislation that reportedly aimed to prevent LGBTQ content from being marketed to children. The law was condemned by multiple human rights groups and the vast majority of Western nations, who denounced the law as being too vague and discriminatory towards sexual minorities.
“There is no legal definition in the Russian law of what constitutes ‘propaganda of homosexuality’ and the law could be interpreted very loosely. They are going to punish people for something which is perfectly legitimate – expressing themselves, being themselves,” argued Amnesty International at the time.
The European Court of Human Rights later ruled that the law had violated the European convention on human rights, claiming that it “had reinforced stigma and prejudice and encouraged homophobia, which was incompatible with the values of a democratic society.”
Tatiana Stanovaya, head of the Moscow-based R.Politik think tank, accused Putin of trying to rally “hardcore conservatives and supporters of traditional values” with his comments.
In reality, it sounds like Putin has more brain cells than President Joe Biden and most of the Democratic Party!
