  1. I find it amazing that it takes YEARS of spits and starts and setbacks to gain the least little progress in gay rights legislation but anti-gay legislation can be imagined, submitted, passed and put into practice in a matter of DAYS!

  2. I wonder how many British or French children are adopted by Russian couples?

    I can’t find anything about it – I wonder why?

    1. You have to be a resident of this country to adopt a child here.

      A noticeable proportion of gay couples in europe are coming here to adopt children because our adoption system treats same sex couples largely fairly, but they all actually have to move and live here for a few years first.

  3. Are they trying to tell us that it is currently legal for a same-sex couple in another country to adopt a Russian child directly from Russia? I would be surprised if that were the case…

    1. No, it’s not. However, what some have done – I don’t know the numbers on it – was adoption of a child by a single person.

      That’s part of the ridiculousness of the bill. It won’t really affect same-sex couples. This serves more to stoke the anti-Western, anti-European, anti-American feelings in the populace.
