  1. Russia still in the dark ages then, just like some parts of the US of A? When will they grow up. Well done Peter and all LGBT who took part in the march.
    Russian president filmed dancing with another man and still so homophobic, tsk tsk, tsk

    1. Don Harrison 28 May 2011, 10:33pm

      Rich I agree with you about the USA.

  2. Rich (original) 28 May 2011, 10:09pm

    I feel sorry that Peter Tatchell didn’t end up in hopsital or in grave…. That’s disappointment from current events with homosexual perverts in Moscow.

    1. Rich, why are you not concerned that you heart, soul and your very humanity, is quickly being killed off by your obessive hatred of homosexuals

      1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:01am

        I question has any of those things.
        He’s also definitely missing a brain too me thinks.

    2. Gosh Rich, you’re worse than me :) I think Peter Tatchell is a modern-day saint. He’s an incredible individual who works tirelessly for others week in week out for little monetary reward. I suggest you go to his website and read up on the causes he fights for – its not all gay you know.

      1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 2:24am

        Hmmm… I never think to go on his website. But you know, he is obsessed with his agenda…. A normal person is not obsessed with anything. He was over 300 times arrested, and that’s indicating the fact that he disregards laws by thinking that he above the law. How in the world so abnormally thunking person could be a saint? Saints doesn’t break laws, psychopaths does being deluded. That’s simple. There is legal mechanism in democratic societies to change law. Why the guy doesn’t go by legal way? Why he for 300 times violates civil laws of various countries?

        1. “Saints don’t break laws”? Where in the world did you ever hear that?

          Francis of Assisi?
          Gandhi?
          Martin Luther King?

          Law-breakers all.
          And saints.

          The God’s Gay Children in Moscow today are just the latest of an illustrious, sanctified line!

          1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:34am

            Homosexuals are not God’s children, they are Satanic creatures… That’s what they are.

          2. So why are you spending so many hours on a gay website then? Obsessed much?

          3. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 11:39am

            More Hilarious comments from Bitch Rich.

          4. @Rich (original)

            Doesnt the Bible say something along the lines of “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”?

            Your bigotry and stone throwing have no place in a modern world let alone any faith based view

          5. and to clarify I don’t think homosexuality is “sinning”

            I do think hate filled venom and agitation expressed by Rich (original) are sinful to humanity

          6. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:23am

            Stu
            He’s only into using the Bible, Koran etc for an excuse for his own simple mind of bigotry.
            Nothing else.
            It’s all about the trying to shock.
            It’s not convincing.

        2. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:03am

          “A normal person is not obsessed with anything”
          LOL
          You said it honey!!

        3. A normal person is not obsessed with anything.
          .
          @ Rich (original): since you’ve shown yourself, over and over again, to be obsessed with homosexuality, I’m glad you can at least admit you’re not normal. (Many of us could have told you that some time ago.)

          1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 11:41am

            Aye, the queue is mighty long!

        4. @Rich (original)

          You would never think to look at Tatchells website – yet you would think to spread hatred and bigotry on a gay news website … interesting consistency in your approach …

          1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:24am

            He’s just a boring attention seeker, nothing more.

        5. de Villiers 29 May 2011, 9:34pm

          Rich, perhaps you could forward your advice to those who would break the laws of the state by engaging in religious motivated discrimination, assault and terrorism.

          1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:30am

            I was under the impression that the Russians didn’t want Muslims due to things happening between Russia and Chechnya.
            Yet here he is, a Muslim, protecting Russia like it’s the love of his life.
            Big smackings of hypocrite if you ask me.
            I reckon Bitch Rich is really Stephen Green or David Skinner.

          2. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:31am

            Sorry that should have read “here he is, ‘a Muslim’,…”
            I don’t believe a word of it.

        6. Paddyswurds 29 May 2011, 9:59pm

          Just because Peter Tatchell may have been arrested 300 times (was he?) doesn’t mean he broke any laws. How many times was he tried and convicted is more to the point.

        7. Rich said: A normal person is not obsessed with anything.
          .
          Define what you mean by normal.
          .
          How can anyone be labelled as such? We all have our individual traits, clearly the trait you have is one to try and provoke hate towards the LGBT community.
          .
          Now be a good boy and get back in your straitjacket.

          1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:47am

            A normal person is not obsessed with anything.
            -
            So that would make LGBT people normal then and you Bitch Rich Very Adnormal!!

    3. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:00am

      Blimey Rich you just say the same boring ol thing time and time again don’t ya.
      You just carry on being your laughable predictable, hypocritical self dear.

    4. @Rich (original)

      Hate inspired thinking wanting to see people seriously injured (ie in hospital) …

      That is perverted thinking of the worst order – and demonstrates the strength of her bigotry …

    5. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:00am

      You are being reported for encouraging violence and/or murder of gay people. I like the new Rich much better than you – you brainless troll!

  3. good on you peter and all LGBT hope you were not hurt to badly to day
    when will the world grow up

    1. Ditto…

      and Dan Choi is no slouch either.

      1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 11:43am

        Indeed.
        I do think these people that bitch about the likes of Peter and Dan really should look closer because chances are the human rights they themselves enjoy is most probably because of the like of LGBT people like Peter and Dan.
        Something they seem to think about.

        1. @Jock S Trap

          Absolutely, whilst I may not agree with every protest or campaign engaged in by either Dan or Peter – their commitment to ensuring equality and freedom is remarkable and to be commended

  4. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 3:23am

    I wonder why homosexual male like to have sex with another male? What’s went wrong with some few human males that they rejected human females as partners in life? Allah created women for men for an infinite adoration and reproduction of Mankind, and yet, some males rejected Allah’s gift to men and began use other men for sexual interest, perverting their mentality and whole moral and evolutionary order of human society. That’s very shameful factor become now spreading especially by Western countries. That’s so sad….

    1. lady tanya 29 May 2011, 4:07am

      Rich (original) have you no life, or is that you have no one in your life, and why is that I wonder. You sit up all night just to make stupid comments on something you know sod all about. I wish you could find a life then you would be much happier

      1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 4:11am

        Don’t worry about my life, stupid pervert…. Worry about own, degenerated female!

        1. lady tanya 29 May 2011, 4:24am

          but I do I want to save you from going to heaven cant you see the way is gay love to you

          1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:14am

            Even if there was a thing I very much doubt it would be heaven he’d go to.
            That amount of Evil only has one place.

          2. Regardless of whether there is or isnt a heaven – Rich’s vitriol demonstrates the hatred in his heart and his vile desires deserve no place which celebrates integrity, honesty and love.

            Am not convinced in heaven’s existance but I do know Rich is everything that is antipathy to integrity, honesty and love

          3. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:02am

            Can’t we get this vile pervert homophobe troll banned from this site?

    2. God (or “Allah”: different words for same Absolute) created SOME men to “adore” other men, and created SOME women to “adore” other women. Why does this *obvious* Truth threaten you so? God/Allah knows God’s purpose in this. Trust, and give thanks!

      1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:15am

        It’s so obvious why it “threatens” him.
        It does with all closet cases.

      2. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:39am

        What sort of adoration present in saunas where homosexuals coupulating as animals? None.
        What sort of of adoration present in dark-rooms where homosexuals sucking each others penises? None.
        Therefore, don’t lie about “adoration”.

        1. Bit obsessed I think dear… Picturing those images are you? I wonder why that is.

        2. Rich, so you are a Muslim again this week who visits Gay Saunas !!!

          1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 11:47am

            and darkrooms, it looks like!

        3. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 11:46am

          You do seem to know a little too much to be trying to fool us into thinking your not one big homo yaself Bitch Rich.

        4. Heterosexual couples copulate in the same way animals do too, and it’s hardly unknown for a straight woman to give her partner’s penis a suck – and it’s still perfectly possible for them to adore one another. Love can exist between any pair of consenting adults, so stop pedalling your pathetic fallacies.

          1. (*peddling* :P)

        5. Have you been researching dark rooms and saunas from field visits, Rich …

          homosexuals generally will engage in acts involving the others genitalia if they have sex – that will mean men playing with each others penises – not a shock ….

          Rich you are infantile – go away, your words do not make a homosexual stop being homosexual – nor do you do any good for your cause – you make us despise your situation and you show yourself up with your hatred, ridiculous comments that lack insight and bizarre ignorance

          1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:41am

            Difference is Stu, the majority from the LGBT community will not retalliate hate with hate which is why the LGBT community will always be much, much better than the likes of Bitch Rich.
            Trouble is, deep down he knows it.
            (while clearly fighting his ‘urges’!)

          2. @Jock S Trap

            But he seems to have plenty of sauna and dark room experience – or wants to …

          3. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 4:49pm

            No he seems to have plenty of experience it seems, no wants to about it.

    3. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:11am

      “I wonder why homosexual male like to have sex with another male?”
      LOL
      The fact thats all you can thing about says it all about you.
      Clearly it’s you projecting, pervert!!
      Pure Comedy.

    4. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:12am

      Rich…
      So not Jewish then this week?

    5. How old were you when you started wondering why some men enjoy same-sex activity?

    6. @Rich (original)

      Let me explain something very simply and basically to you …

      The reason homosexual men like to have sex with other men is because they are homosexual

    7. Paddyswurds 29 May 2011, 10:07pm

      Human males aren’t the only animals who are homosexual…It is evident in all forms of animal life on this planet and is well documented if you take the time from being a worthless bigot to look into it.
      However it is only humans who display the sort of hatred you seem to hold for your own species. What does the “prophet” have to say about that i wonder?. By the way homosexuality is rife amongst woman hating muslims but they keep it well hidden.

      1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:49am

        Totally agree, all animals in the world have some that are ‘homosexual’
        Yet humans are the only ones that feel they have a right to choose a religion and somehow that makes them entitled to dominate all other humanity.
        Then they separate other humans.
        They don’t have any rights over people born, End of!

  5. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 4:04am

    Regardless my negative views on homosexuals with their political agenda, after watching video documentary on brutal arrests of peaceful young and nice lesbian ladies and peaceful homosexual males in Moscow, I feel great and very deep compassion for them in my soul!…. What I obseverved today was absolutely terrible!….. Shame on Russian police! That was brutal and uncivilized….

    1. Charles Charlie Charles 29 May 2011, 6:18am

      “brutal arrests of peaceful young and nice lesbian ladies”

      I spy a troll, and a not very good one.

      1. I also spy a troll – and one with tortured syntax. “I ask self why Rich (original) write as if he Tarzan – and wonder if strangness of his writings is done intentional,” (parodied style has been placed in quotation marks to distinguish it from the rest of this commentary).

    2. @Rich (original)

      Whilst I welcome some compassion from you and agree that the Russian police were horrendous in their actions

      This does not justify your hate filled views

  6. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 4:09am

    One more thing…. Yes, Peter Tatchell is correct that Moscow police colloborated with nationalists. Police was not impartial.

    1. lady tanya 29 May 2011, 4:55am

      Rich (original) does this mean you have a hart and you have seen the light, we are not bad people we are the Victims

      1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 8:17am

        LOL don’t bank on it.

        1. He’s aware he’s been reported and will be banned for his violently homophobic rhetoric and so is back peddling. Interesting that a homophobe spends so much of his time on a gay website…

      2. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:47am

        Russian homosexuals should not go on dangerous for them streets of Moscow. They acted irresponsibly to their own life. They know for 100% that they are traget for mobs and police brutality, but they ignores that factor and obsessed with their poltical agenda. Interestingly, where was the organizer of this idiotic, homo-political event, Nikolay A. Alekseyev? He didn’t appeared anywhere on videos.

        1. Rich, Russia is no longer the brutally controlling “Communist country” it used to be.
          .
          Rich, when are you going to accept that fact

        2. @Rich (original)

          So you think the police in Russia were brutal but you think Peter tatchell should have ended up in hospital … explain?

          1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 9:53am

            Because he’s trying to be shocking and controversial – Yawn! -
            It’s not working.

          2. @Jock S Trap

            Rich is VERY trying

            Yawn indeed

          3. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:07am

            Typical troll behavior. Please don’t feed the troll, just report him when he crosses the line – i.e. advocating or celbrating violence and or murder of gay persons, or anyone else for that matter. If everyone reports him and complains everytime he does it, maybe he will be banned.

  7. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 7:57am

    Absolutely disgusting.
    It seems Russia not only wishes to do nothing about protecting but purposely wants to send the country back to side with neo n@zis.
    It doesn’t surprise me but the worlds media Should be following these disturbing developments.
    This whole buisiness is a crime against humanity and Russia should be seen as such.

    1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:55am

      Absolutely disgusting person is YOU, who doing sodomy, perverting human nature, its very essence. Natinalists of Russia attempting to save the Russia from perverts like you. That’s all. For what reason government need to protect the perverts in Russia? For expansion of homosexuality and perverting innocent youth in near future? No, such sort of care for homosexual perverts is not possible in Russia. Moscow will not become Sodom! Never.

      1. @ Rich: your freakish rantings and obsession with this site are becoming seriously boring.

      2. Same-sex attraction has been part of every known civilization and can be traced back as far as the epic of Gilgamesh.

        As for Moscow, it was a sexually liberated society throughout the19th century, wasn’t it?

        1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 12:13pm

          Are you admire male anus and like to lick it all the time? What a disgusting same-sex “attraction”!….

          1. When did you first notice that you were disgusted with same-sex attraction?

          2. Rich, it is curious how you focus on a sexual practices, assume all gays partake in them, and assume that heterosexual never partake in them.
            .
            Rich, your ignorance of homosexual sexaul practices, is just marked, as your ignorance of heterosexual sexual practices.
            .
            Rich, go an learn about the full range of heterosexual practices, instead of coming here and telling us what we do, and do not do in bed.
            .

          3. @Rich (original)

            You seem very obsessed with gay sex acts …

            Sex is indeed part of human relationships and a very important part – but only part …

            I don’t spend time voicing the fact that I find cunnilingus an unpleasant thought. But then I think that two women or a man and a women who consent to sex with each other (whether in a loving relationship or not) are entitled to carry out whatever sexual acts they like on each other without fear of ridicule.

          4. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:06am

            I take it is was being done to you while you wrote this!!

          5. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:10am

            Indeed Stu.
            To be honest if Bitch Rich isn’t Gay I fail to see how or why anybody else Gay would bother him unless of course he’s Gay himself!!
            Why spend so much time thinking about two men having sex if you aren’t Gay.
            I think it’s a case of stating the bloomin obvious.
            Otherwise he rantings make absolutely no sense.
            I say that they don’t seem to anyway but I’m sure you get my point.

      3. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 12:07pm

        Bitch Rich, calm down dear.
        You say Nothing new.
        We’ve heard it ALL before, it’s all you can say.
        You just pissed because Every Gay, Lesbian etc is sooooooo much better than you will Ever be and you know it.
        You know it Big time baby!

        1. Jock, I agree.
          .
          Rich says a lot, but ends up actually saying nothing, or at least nothing we have not heard of before, so to speak.

          1. right on..

            In Texas they say: All hat; no cattle !!

          2. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:12am

            Indeed, he says very little.
            But then I suspect he is a big Fake anyway so hardly surprising.

          3. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:13am

            In this case it’s all cack, not tattle!

          4. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:11am

            But look at all of the attention we are giving him! Don’t feed the troll – that’s what he lives for. Just report him when he crosses the line – advocating or celebrating violence or murder agains any group of persons.

      4. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:05am

        I repeat one word for you you raving hypocrite:- Chechnya
        Your a Fake!!

  8. You know what, I’m not inclined to believe him after to the other lies he has told.

    1. Example?

      1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:14am

        Interesting that that bizarre comment doesn’t seem to be followed up in a hurry by Adam.

  9. ‘First they ignore you, then they mock you, then they fight you, then you win’
    Ghandi

    Give it time and the last will happen

    1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:30am

      Ghandi was a phenomental idiot and a homosexual pervert. Because of his mental abnormality, India was divided and millions of Indians suffered pains, injuries, many were killed, and currently the country threatend by Pakistan’s terrorists. That’s unforgivable.

      1. Rich, so if you disagree with some one then, you just call then a homosexual pervert.
        .
        Rich, how convienent
        .
        Rich, how very much in the style of Robert Mugabe

        1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:59am

          Mugabe is a chicken. I would do so perfect cleaning up of his country that no single homosexual would ever appreared there.

          1. Jock S. Trap 29 May 2011, 12:09pm

            But you would be there too so not entitly eh Bitch Rich?!

        2. You know as well as I do that homophobia is a mental illness.

          We need specialized mental health clinics which will identify the sources of homophobia in our democracy and challenge them.

          Another great thing about Gay Pride is that the parades do bring homophobes to the surface so that we can examine the nefarious and contradictory effects of so-called divine revelations on contemporary human consciousness.

          Yea, Peter Tatchell !!

          1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 12:17pm

            You would be easy torget in future for your enemies. One such target already in the Russian hospital…. I hope it will never leave it alive….

          2. That remark shows exactly how much of a barbarian you are, Rich – thanks!

          3. @Rich(original)

            So you want someone to never leave hospital alive … that shows the true nature of your views and hate filled vile rhetoric – oh and the cowardice of you

          4. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:15am

            Bitch Rich – you are quite a bore.

          5. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:17am

            Rich (original) you have been reported (again) for advocating or celebrating violence and/or murder of gay people. I will continue to report you everytime you do this. Please everyone do the same and don’t answer him except to report that you reported him whenever he crosses this line. Maybe if enough of us do this always it will get him banned.

      2. @ RIch: what is unforgivable is your inccredible stupidity and obvious lack of even a grain of historical awareness (if you think Gandhi – not Ghandi – divided India you’ve clearly not even got to secondary-level education yet).

        1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 12:20pm

          Stupid is YOU. Gandhi gave OK on division of India. He was admired by people of India as a saint, while he was just a regular homosexual pervert…

          1. To whom did ‘give OK’, you fool? Gandhi was opposed to Partition as drawn up by the British. Go back to praising Allah or try reading a book, you insufferable twit.

          2. Rich, when did you first associate the words ‘homosexual’ and ‘pervert’?

      3. @Rich (original)

        There are claims that Gandhi was heterosexual and claims that he was bisexual – your suggestions that he was homosexual are new. Gandhi may have made many errors – but he made some brave decisions which brought independence and growth to the Indian nation. Gandhi is a remarkable man.

        Strange he was neither of the religions you have claimed at various points on this site to be part of (another lack of consistency on your part) – so strange you will then not find anything positive to say about him

        You know in debate it is possible to admire someone and factors in their life without supporting other views they have or actions they have undertaken – but I suspect that is too complex an idea for you.

        1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:16am

          He doesn’t have the intelligence to know what he means it’s all assumptions nothing more.

  10. Police collusion comes as little surprise in that barbarian culture. Thank heaven PT managed to escape unscathed.

    1. I am especially proud of Dan Choi too.

    2. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 12:28pm

      Barbarian is YOU, because you know nothing of magnificent Russian culture, being a dark-minded stupid. You even have no idea what Russian genius Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote for Mankind and how cultured people of the world admires HIM.

      1. Pathetic. Dostoyevsky died 130 years ago and today’s Russian culture, even you would probably admit, is not quite the same as it was then. And the existence of great writers, thinkers and/or artists does not necessarily signal a great culture.
        .
        Go back to your beloved Russia and stop boring us with your infantile witterings here.

      2. Rich, is there any truth to the rumor that many of Russia’s greatest artists were homosexual?

      3. Rich and what about Russia’s greatest composer?
        .
        Tchaikovsky
        .
        Also a famous homosexual, as well as a great musician and composer

      4. Rich and what about Russia’s greatest ballet dancer?
        .
        Rudolf Nuyrevf
        ..
        Also a famous homosexual, as well as a great all time legend of the Ballet

        1. oh.. I love Nureyev…

          Google ‘Nureyev’s Grave” to see his beautiful resting place…

          Did you see Nureyev playing Valentino and dancing the Tango with Nijinsky..another exquisite Russian homosexual ?

      5. Rich and what about one of Russia’s greatest writers?
        .
        Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin
        ..
        Also a famous homosexual, as well as a great poet, writer and composer

        1. It was Stalin who criminalized homosexuality in 1933.

          Almost 40 years later, in the 1970′s, Gennady Trifonov (b. 1945) privately circulated gay poetry.

          As for the fiction writer, Yevgeny Kharitonov ( a homosexual), he was published in Russia to great acclaim in 1993.

          With the coming of ‘glasnost’, gay figures of the past, such as Leontiev and Kuzmin, have been reprinted.

          Despite the present chaotic conditions in Russia, Yeltsin’s recent decriminalization of homosexuality suggests that the future of Russian Gay Literature might well turn out to be quite promising.

      6. @Rich (Original)

        At least have some consistency on the same thread

        You were a moment ago castigating the Russian authorities – you can’t have it both ways …

        1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:21am

          Your having a laugh ain’t ya!! LOL
          Putting the words Rich and consistency in a sentence are like putting the words the words Rich and intelligent together…. just laughable!!

          1. I agree, Jock S Trap

            but I do like pulling his stupidity apart

          2. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 4:51pm

            Well I suppose that makes a change from someone pulling his cheeks apart!

          3. @Jock S Trap

            I strongly suspect I wouldnt want to pull those apart … Who knows who’s been doing that before …

          4. Jock S. Trap 31 May 2011, 12:45pm

            And what might crawl out!!
            Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!

  11. Things aren’t going to change in Russia or anywhere else unless people are aware of the injustice. Pink News performs an important service to the LGB & T communities by providing a fast and up-to-date news feed. But the problem is that what happened in Moscow seems of little or no concern to big media organisations such as the BBC where, as far as I know, it went unreported.

    Recall Moscow Pride in 2009 when it coincided with the Eurovision Song Contest. Traitorous Graham Norton feigned ignorance on the issue, and the BBC all but ignored homophobia in the Eurovision host city. I’m afraid that the media is choc-a-bloc full with the likes Graham Norton – their concern is for their own careers and good fortune, even where it’s at the expense of standing up for the rights of others.

  12. auntie babs 29 May 2011, 12:22pm

    perhaps a campaign to get Russia disqualified from the Olympic Games might be in order? It is the year of fighting homophobia in sport after all….and perhaps disqualification from the Eurovision Song Contest as well?? (Much as I thought this years entry was the tastiest morsel on display)

    1. “perhaps a campaign to get Russia disqualified from the Olympic Games might be in order? ”

      Nice idea, but as there are so many other homophobic countries you’d find half the world would also have to be excluded. That’s never going to happen.

      We do need the media to sit up and take notice just as they did years ago with the race discrimination issue.

  13. Rich sounds like our old friend, Sugar Plum Fairy… one of his many, many aka’s.

    1. Hi Jonpol, nice to read you comments, hope you are well.

      1. hugs to you, JohnK… yea, all is honky dorey..:)

    2. “Rich sounds like our old friend, Sugar Plum Fairy”
      .
      Perhaps he materialsed from Tchaikovsky Nutcracker suite, i.e from the famous dance of the “sugar Plum Fairy”

  14. “By banning Moscow Gay Pride, Russia has defied a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that it must be allowed to proceed. Some of us now plan to press the Council of Europe to suspend Russia’s right to vote in the Council’s parliamentary assembly. Russia must not be permitted to defy the European Court with impunity. “Prior to the staging of Moscow Gay Pride, the ban was condemned by the Council of Europe’s Secretary-General, Thorbjorn Jagland, and its Commissioner for Human Rights, Thomas Hammarberg.” —–Peter Tatchell

  15. As far as that idiot Rich (original) is concerned, what can else can one expect from one who claims to be a muslim or whatever flavour of the month “it” subscribes to? In my research into monotheistic cults, the supreme deity didn’t judge or codemn others, quite the contrary. 99.9% of these religious ninnies don’t practice or live by what is written in the bible, torah or quran. Not even the Pope, Chief Rabbi or Imam.

    JohnK, obsessive hatred of homosexuals more often than not translates into self-loathing, closet homosexual. Proof positive that devolution exists, he and his ilk are brilliant examples of it. No well-adjusted straight man or woman would feel so threatened or obsess so much about our orientation. I wonder why this individual isn’t trolling straight sites? I suspect he’s incapable of forming any relationship and sexually inadequate. A total failure of a life when his existence thrives on hatred. He’s damaged goods, no question about it.

    1. Hi Robert, thanks for the message. I tend to agree with you with regards the motivation behind obessive hatred of homosexuality, and it certianly appears to be the case with regards Rich.

  16. jonpol, exactly right! I think Russia and all of that baltic rabble too should be booted out of the Council of Europe altogether and in the case of some, expelled from the EU.

    Rich (original) now let me see…hmmmm…”a normal person is not obsesssed with anything”….? Well, it seems you most definitely are when you persistently troll Pink News and by the way, your God who is supposed to be perfect doesn’t make mistakes every time a gay child is born. If ever there were a mistake of birth, its YOURS, you pathetic piece of sub-human detritus. Go join the Taliban or Al Quaeda and blow yourself up if you can’t find 72 virgins on earth who would be dumb enough and desperate to take you on, assuming you can get it up which I doubt.

  17. You meet bullying with bullying perhaps.
    As yet we haven’t caused enough trouble, broken enough heads, for people to take us seriously.
    If people who think they can use violence against us were to think ‘Ooops if I do that then I am likely to get hurt’ they may think different.
    No decent change can ever be brought about by entirely peaceful means.

    1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 8:45pm

      Try to bring your political changes by entirely unpeaceful means. That’s would be wondeful because then your homosexual perverts will really meet their destiny — perhaps –in mass graves…

      1. @Rich(original)

        Speaks someone who wants people to die in hospital …

        Your comments are infantile and obsessed

        1. I agree, an “infantile and obessed”, mindless muppet.

      2. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:21am

        You have been reported for advocating or celebrating mass murder of gay people.

        1. @David Myers

          I (and I suspect many others) have been taking similar action by reporting Rich for the outrageous statements encouraging mass murder. I will continue to do so and encourage others to do the same.

          I can’t stop bigots like Rich having such thoughts but I can insist that PN show responsibility by limiting offensive comments that hurt, alienate and distress others and incite others to act with violence

  18. This inane obsession by certain governments with what people do in bed is rather boring. You’d think they had more important things to worry about, like health, crime, education etc.
    Trying to control the sexuality of another and the beliefs of another shows that you are neither comfortable nor resilient in your own beliefs.
    As for those using religion to justify hatred of homosexuality, there are 6 admonishments in the bible to homosexuality, and 263 to heterosexuals. Perhaps straight people needed more control?

  19. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 7:45pm

    Interestingly, majority of Russian homosexuals doesn’t suppport homosexual politics with “gay pride parade”. If Russia has over 14 millions homosexuals, only 15 Russian homosexuals decided make attempt for “gay pride parade”. Great majority of homosexuals in Russian rejecting homosexual politics with “gay pride parade”. They openly criticize an organizer of such actions in Moscow, N. Alekseyev, and his psychotic persistence with dangerous for his followers actions in highly hostile environments.

    1. However, 20% of Russians do support Gay people!!!
      .
      and next week it might be 25%
      .
      and the year after 30%
      .
      and the following year 40%
      .
      Then what will you do?

    2. Only a small number may be brave enough to march

      Strangely not every homosexual marches in every pride anywhere

      That does not equate with not following “homosexual politics” whatever that means …

    3. Rech Oregeno.. I wonder where the stats are coming from ??

      Now please don’t take that the wrong way..

      1. The 20% was a paraphrase from one of Rich’s post, so your guess is as good as mine, so to speak
        .
        titter

      2. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:51pm

        Actually there 84% of Russians who rejecting homosexuals in Russia. The statistics is established by the Analytical Center of Yuri Levada on the year of 2007. That’s the FACT.

        1. garbage in, garbage out

        2. Rich, your recent stats are four years out of date!!!

          1. Well, he is a bit behind the times, in thoughts, feelings and views.

            Evidence of these figures, if you please Rich, or whoever you purport to be this hour.

          1. Yawn, indeed

        3. It has never been 84% – itg was 64% in 2008 – but thanks for giving us the opportunity to bring the real stats to light:

          http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jZj0MXAueJqDxN-C7C1ycffxwk_g?docId=CNG.0784d30f2c5679b8a39ba1b49e6192a6.271

          1. Ahh some evidence, provided by someone sensible! :)

            Pity you couldn’t do the same Rich and provide meaningful evidence. Instead you provide a load of cobbled and randomly made up facts to get your hate filled agenda across. Thank you jonpol. ;)

  20. I really don’t know why Rich (original) calls himself that. Very little he posts is original. Or (original), for that matter.

    1. I suppose it’s only fair to presume that Retch O’Rag-Anal is a male.

      1. Sadly, most likely !!!

  21. Rich (the unoriginal), you’d better watch it. Someone with enough computer language and knowledge of writing computer programmes could easily hack your IP address, find out exactly where you are and probably who you are. Then, armed with copies of your comments, submit the evidence to a Sharia court where you will be dealt with severely for consorting with gay men online, guilt by association. Then, you too would probably end up in a mass grave along with the rest of us. Be careful what you wish for, dumb tosser. You could be next! No straight man in his right mind would spend time on a gay site ranting the way you do. Its not normal, but then you’re not, you sick, demented bastard.

    1. Rich (original) 29 May 2011, 10:55pm

      Don’t worry. I am immune all sorts of hostilities. Worry of your own life. You need it, because it could end up in bad way, especially as result of degeneration of your brain tissues during your AIDS status.

      1. Subtlety not your strong point is it Rich – but then you struggle with facts too

        You are immune from nothing muppet – you are a weak fragile demented ill person

        1. Rich (original) 30 May 2011, 12:27pm

          you are idiotic as usual…. oh…

          1. As are you.

          2. So show some humanity and argue with facts rather than vile, depraved rhetoric and lies

          3. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:25am

            He is incapable of doing any such thing. He is only here for the attention – a troll who thrives on pulling people’s chains.

          4. @David Myers

            The thing is Rich doesnt realise how laid back and calm most of us are in pointing out the error of his ways. Most of us are very comfortable in our views on the world and happy to calmly, rationally and without malice confront bigotry and ignorance wherever it is found. No stirring from Rich causes me upset – but his banal lies due need to be confronted.

      2. “You need it, because it could end up in bad way, especially as result of degeneration of your brain tissues during your AIDS status.”

        LOL! This is even more stupid than normal…. meds must be wearing off.

      3. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:54am

        Oh dear, one thinks madam has truely lost it!

      4. Rich, now you appear to make the assumption that all gays, or rather only gays, become infected with the HIV virus.
        .
        Rich, recent UK statistics point to just under half of those people being diagnosed with HIV, are actually heterosexual.

      5. But thankfully not immune from the police, Rich.

  22. Even though Rich (unoriginal) has managed to hi-jack this thread, it’s impossible not to be impressed by Thatchell and Choi and all the other non-Russian gay activists who’ve put their lives on the line to make life better for gay men and lesbian women irrespective of where they live. And the Russian activists – well, they’re juswt heroes in anyone’s estimation because they don’t get the option of going back to a different country where they get treated better. Fantastic people, one and all.

    1. Tatchell and Choi must be respected for their brave actions

      1. Exactly, totally!!!
        .
        Brave is not the word

  23. It’s sad that Russia is going backwards.

    It’s not just on gay rights. It’s everything. Democracy and liberal values generally are non-existent. That euphoria after the collapse of the Soviet regime is dead. Russia is going back to its old ways. Russia is probably one of the worst places in the world, for example, to be a journalist.

    But, having said that, a huge bravo to those who participated in this event.

    1. Rich (original) 30 May 2011, 12:30pm

      Your mind gong backward, while Russia going forward for happiness without homosexual perverts!

      1. .Rich, moving forward into what?
        .
        A Neo-Narzi Utopia.
        .
        You murderous mindless muppet

  24. Fags please don’t come back to Russia. Dan Choi and other faggots stay out of my country.

    1. Yeah, Stepan, you’re right, Russia is a kip – gay people have more taste.

    2. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 10:57am

      I’m betting your about as Russian as Dame Edna Everage.

      1. Rich (original) 30 May 2011, 12:34pm

        Your betting as idiotic as usual… looks like more demented now….

        1. Jock S. Trap 30 May 2011, 3:27pm

          Who Cares but it is Very interesting the way you seem to be answering for “Stepan”
          What’s up? Forgot to change your name?

        2. Demented – thats a new word for you, Rich – been trying to improve your English and found a word that fits you to a tee?

    3. @Stepan, are you going to reject, disown and deny all the homoexual artists, writers, intellectuals and scientists, who have supported and worked for the Soviet Union, or continue to work in Russia today?

    4. Rich (original) 30 May 2011, 12:32pm

      Congrats, Stepan! I am with my heart for you and your Great Country!

      1. Rich, you repeatedly continue to ignore famous Gay Russians. Below are just a few:
        .
        Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
        .
        Sergei Diaghilev
        .
        Rudolf Nureyev
        .
        Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin
        .
        Rich, why do you ingore the artistic, intellectual and scientific contributions made to Russian society, past and present, by gay people

        1. David Myers 1 Jun 2011, 9:29am

          Rich. How long have you been talking to yourself? Does this happen often? Perhaps the two of you could go somewhere else and have a great time together without bringing your shxt to this site. P. S. your condition is commonly called schiztophrenia which is somewhat in accurate. Perhaps a better description would be to rename you Smeagle/Gollum.

        2. Jezzer uk 2 Jun 2011, 9:59pm

          Is that ivan massow a russian? hes well dishy

          I like the boney m song rasputin as well, he sounds a bit of an arse from the lyrics, i never was good at european history at school, but knew how to groove to that tune hehe

      2. Rich, we all know “Stepan” is really you.
        .
        O dear Rich, not getting enough attention from all these homosexuals
        .
        Rich, you really are obesessed with “Bum Sex”, arn’t you!!!

        1. Yes, it’s the only way Rich can get someone to agree with him – manufacture a new identity. Of course, what he really needs is a nice boyfriend.

    5. Thank you Stepan for confirming the impression that Russia and many (most?) of its inhabitants are barbaric.

    6. It’s not a question of anyone returning to Russia or not; it’s a simple question of Russian citizens’ rights of Assembly and Free Speech at a time when the entire world is observing the liberating effects of the Jasmine Revolution in the Middle East.

      The world is literally a stage these days, and a child can tell which way the wind is blowing in Russia.

      In the meantime the U.S. has reacted to the Moscow gay pride arrests:

      http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2011/05/u-s-reacts-to-moscow-gay-pride-arrests-freedom-of-assembly-a-fundamental-right/

    7. Stepan why do you ignore the artistic, intellectual and scientific contributions made to Russian society, past and present, by gay people. The following are just a few of Russia’s great artists:
      .
      Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
      .
      Sergei Diaghilev
      .
      Rudolf Nureyev
      .
      Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin
      .

      1. The presence of homosexual love in Russian Literature goes as far back as the 10th century, notably in “The Legend of Boris and Gleb”.

        If our deluded gadfly would bother to read some Russian Literature…what an exciting enlightenment he/she would find.

    8. your country? only yours huh? you are a typical backward kook living in a tiny bubble of delusion.
