    Don’t the Russian Army seem so educated!!!!!…Well again they have Putin!! F****** morons…

  2. The Russians seem to be becoming as obsessed with exterminating homosexuals as the Nazis were with us along with the Jews and, eventually, anyone else who didn’t meet their ideals of Aryan perfection…….I wonder what this is about?…

    1. The nazis were acually quite tolerant of gays to begin with – Rohm, the boss of the SA, was a flaming queen, and was only killed because he challenged Hitler. 6m Jews were murdered. About 5 to 10 thousand gays were killed, mostly ‘unintentionally.’

        Stalin murdered far more people than Hitler.
        The Jews just like to promote their side of the story.

        1. You’re quite right about Stalin, but the only reason that’s not mentioned more often is simply because he was our ally in WWII and not The Enemy.

      2. Actually around 100,000 gay men were slaughtered in the concentration camps. An unknown amount of lesbian were killed due to the fact they were simply branded “undesirable” along with prostitutes and other women the party didn’t like.

        Rohm was actually the friend of Hitler, but he wasn’t extreme enough for Hitler’s views. Hitler ordered him to be killed on the Night of the Long knives. Hitler explained this murder (and the murder of Rohm’s loyal soldiers) by saying they were gay.

        That was when things got really bad for the gay community in the war.

        I think it’s disgusting you think that homosexuals were killed “unintentionally”. Gay men faced some of the worst documented treatment of the entire Holocaust. If you were a gay men you may as well have taken an axe to your temples to save you the pain and suffering. They were treated the worst, given the worst jobs, raped and molested by guards. They had THE lowest survival rate.

        Get your facts right before shouting off!

    Suggests though people wanting to inspect other guys dicks amount to be gay themselves?

  4. And this is the 21st Century…

  5. Oh well that makes sense?????????????
    WTF is wrong with this world.

  6. The Russian military admits ” that tattoos are sometimes applied to inmates by force.” Wouldn’t that be a good reason to ignore tattoos? Imagine how it would feel to survive a prison rape and being forcibly tattooed, only to have some idiot in command say that is proof that you are gay.

      … and then to be further stigmatised by saying that ‘allowing’ yourself to be raped indicates you are ‘malleable’. Classic ‘blame the victim’ madness! What a sick country and policy.

    Where do I sign up for this job?

    1. There’s a queue already.

      It is all a trap. The people in the queue are the ones they want to root out.

  8. I can’t find any source for this story apart from the Daily Mail one below.
    Can you tell me how you checked it?
    You did check it, yes?

    So much for 70′s hanky codes.

  10. “In order to eliminate homosexuality, we have no choice but to thoroughly examine your penis and buttocks. In a strictly heterosexual manner, of course.”

    Dear physicians
    Some of these gays may be hiding the tattoos with liquid makup. Hence you have permission to vigorously rub the genitals of all inspected soldiers with soap to make sure there is no subterfuge and misdirection going on. These gays are quite crafty. In fact we may have to do these inspections weekly.

      Why are people so anxious to find something or someone to Hate? Just because there are people who find their comfort in loving people of their same gender doesn’t physically harm you or anyone else, so why do you hate them? For all of my adult working life I have worked with people from all over world and do you know what I saw? I saw a human being, period! If you were blind you can’t see a person’s skin color so you shouldn’t be a racist and I have to ask why a person with normal eye sight finds their life so disrupted when they see a person with a different skin color than their own. Why do people hate other people who believe in a different religion then they do when the majority practice their religion in such a way as it causes no harm to themselves or others? I actually know exactly what the problem is, it’s because people do not know who they are, they don’t know their true self inside of themselves, that which gives them each and every breath. Get to know your true self.

  12. LOL, wouldn’t that be the whole point, having a man be “submissive”? I mean you wouldn’t want a strong willed independent person for the military.
    Maybe they could take a leaf out of the history books and have a look at one of the most formidable armies the world has ever seen…..sacred band of thebes

    Now we Americans have to start tattooing faces on our own soldiers’ genitals. Gentlement, we must not allow a genital tattoo gap to develop!

    What a bunch of ignorant wankers…

    Beggars belief that these people are actually professional people doesn’t it…

    I honestly can’t believe that people can be so completely and utterly stupid…

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH……one sec…..HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA
