  1. I do hope that the Swedish authorities decide to allow her to stay in Sweden, have they not been seeing what is happening in Russia recently.

    If they force her back, they could well end up with blood on their hands.

    Good luck to Lita, she is going to need it.

  2. I wasn’t first to comment. ZOMG WTF? :(

    Ah well, I’m a bit of a muppet anyway.

    1. We’re aware of that! And what you your comment have been?

    2. Jean,
      buy a rabbit, the mechanical kind.

  3. So much for Swedens tolerant and understanding attitudes.

  4. Have u been following this case, Aiden? Are u aware that return means possible violence, rape or worse for this woman?

    Is there any reason u think that a trivial matter?

    I hope that this person is allowed to stay in Sweden. I would never send anybody like her back to the Russia, it’s a horrible environment for sexual and gender minorities. Not the worst, but it’s still not good. I would expect more from one of the most liberal countries in the world (Sweden).

      to Russia*

      don’t know why I typed the >_>

    2. Really?

      On another thread (http://www.pinknews.co.uk/?comments_popup=28622) you said:- “Transgender people don’t deserve equality because what they are doing is wrong and disgusting.”

    Let’s hope they find you and ship you off to an island and not let you off

    I really hope they don’t find her. I would marry her so she could stay if I wasn’t already married. I wish her all the luck in her fight.

  8. And here’s me thinking Sweden let anyone and everyone in no matter what.
