    LGBTs compared to animals...

    ...in the Russian senate:


    A Russian senator has warned of the slippery slope that legislators risked taking by passing a law against animal cruelty.

    The Federation Council struck down a bill on Tuesday that sought to ban cruelty against animals used in the training of hunting dogs and birds.

    “We treat many western fads with humor, including political correctness, the rights of sexual minorities and others,” Senator Sergei Kalashnikov told fellow lawmakers ahead of the vote.

    Drawing a smattering of applause, Communist Party member Kalashnikov warned: “Any thought, however humanitarian, becomes absurd when carried to its logical conclusion.”

    “We’re not only passing a law that won’t work for many reasons, but we’re also demonstrating that we’re following the same path, so to speak, of defending the rights of sexual minorities."

    Stepan Zhiryakov, the vice-chairman of the Agrarian Committee, retorted that dogs “should not be equated to sexual minorities.”

    The bill has been sent back to the State Duma after failing to pass in the Federation Council.
    Russian Senator Compares Animal Cruelty Law to Gay Rights

    Notice, the senator asked his colleague not to compare dogs to sexual minorities. Not the other way around. I'd like to think he still meant that human beings should not be equalized to animals simply for their sexual orientation. But, it looks to me like it was, in fact, the canines he was defending from such an insulting, in his view, comparison... In Russia, that would make perfect sense...

    Just what is their problem there in Russia? I know many lack good ol' American intelligence when it comes to human rights, not that we're by any means champions of it under the present administration. But this bill thing is ridiculous. However, since many there apparently are animals anyway why should it surprise any of us here the way they think?

    This is really not that much different from a lot of the rhetoric over here - which suggested that allowing homosexuals to marry would lead to more people practicing beastiality.

    So comparing homosexuals to animals like dogs really isn't as unique to Russia as I might wish it were.
