Here is a story of my life. Well, sort of. A teeny-weeny part of it. How I ‘became’ gay.
I was a little child. It was still Soviet Union. There were no alternative sources of information. There was no Internet.
You turn on TV, and you embrace yet another heterosexual love story. You read books - yes, heterosexual love story. You go out, and see heterosexual couples hugging, kissing each other.
All I saw among my family, relatives, friends, neighbours and strangers were heterosexual affairs, marriages and occasional divorces.
All my favourite love stories were straight ones because I didn't know of other type of love stories. This was the only type of life I was "propagated" towards.
And suddenly, as a child under such intense “propaganda”... Boom... I realised that I ‘became’ gay. A miracle happened. A little child transformed into a gay guy. It was not even Christmas time.
Basically, as long as “heterosexual propaganda” is out and proud and in full force, gay rights activists can relax, with no need to resort to ‘devilish’ plans of turning population (children) gay. I am a living proof of such transformation.
So here we are, ladies and gentlemen, the very real target you should be focusing your efforts on. Ban "heterosexual propaganda". Prevent your child turning into a gay man or woman.
P.S. This post is devoted to LGBT activists & allies in Russia who "propagate homosexuality" = fight against totalitarian rules & fascism and for human rights in Russia.
In solidarity with Russia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people,
