    You think anybody would "choose" to be vilified, arrested and persecuted by the state, and beaten up or even murdered by vigilantes in Russia; thrown off buildings, stoned to death, or beheaded in many Arab countries; hanged in Iran; persecuted, imprisoned, killed, in Uganda; etc, etc. You think anyone would CHOOSE that life, if they did not have to?
    You are implying they are mindless automatons that have no control over what they do.

    I guarantee you that if I were gay and lived in a place where I would be prosecuted for it that nobody would ever know.

    Sorry but my life trumps my sexual preference so yes, although horrific, these folks are choosing to expose what they are.

    Homosexuality is not even on the radar for a requirement on how to deal with a major power.

    There are 1000 things we disagree with in regards to every country and if we used all of those as a reason not to do business with them we would be all alone.

    Like it or not, when you are dealing with international relations you have to overlook things.
    No, you don't have to and shouldn't overlook things. Absolutely not! Because if you do, you overlook life itself and the safety of people that should always be of prime importance. When a country perpetuates such HATE CRIMES against humanity such as the vile treatment of its Gay and Lesbian citizens then that HAS to immediately be brought into the picture and the country severely chastised for it. Otherwise, we would be no better than they are and would be sending the strong message that we are in full agreement with them.
