Pussy Riot members: ‘Vladimir Putin could be gay’

  • Halou

    Better have him arrested then. After all, we don’t want him spreading propaganda and turning kids gay, do we?

  • p

    I think its gone through all our minds sweeties, LMAO

    • Karen

      Really why are you all sitting around with thoughts of Putin going through your mind????

  • Liam

    Doubt it, I think he’s just using the church and already existing homophobia to drum up support, he probably doesn’t care one way or the other about gay people.

  • http://www.pariss.info Pariss

    Those that shout loudest and most often have most to hide :)

    • Karen

      Plea se enlighten us to when Putin shoutest about gays. ..

  • Mark Y

    It’s stupid when people say that arch homophobes are gay – he’s not – he’s a vile bigoted pig ignorant HETEROSEXUAL.

    • Psychologist

      Hi Mark Y – Whilst I totally agree with you that Putin is “vile, bigoted, and pig ignorant – I DO NOT agree he is HETEROSEXUAL. Not do I agree with your comments “It’s stupid when people say that arch homophobes are gay” either !
      There is NO DOUBT in my mind that Putin is gay, and in denial.

      • Mark Y

        Yes, and it’s just that – in your mind.

        I guess you think hitler was also a closeted gay man, that’s why he sent us to the gas chambers. And stalin was a closeted gay man, and mao tse tung, and thatcher was a closet lesbian, and bush was a closeted gay man, that’s why they all treated gay people so badly – and obviously all the current homophobic african leaders are closeted gay men, blame all homophobia on gay men and women. Seriously, psychologists talk so much shlte sometimes.

        • Psychologist

          It’s NOT just in MY MIND ! You obviously haven’t read or studied ANY of the international research on homophobia, conducted in various parts of the world, over more than 10 years, have you ?
          Where the research conclusively shows not only a “correlation” between homophobia, and being in denial of being gay, but actually shows “cause and effect” !
          Read my general posted comment on this page, where I explain it in detail.
          The only thing I would add to my other comment is this:- Homophobes often quote their “religious beliefs” as a reason for their “homophobic views”. However, what they actually do is USE their religion as a “legitimiser” for their OWN homophobia !
          And Yes, there is much evidence which suggests that Hitler was indeed gay and in denial. probably so were many of the others you mentioned too. This is far more common than people would care to think.
          I come across it regularly during therapy, so I can hardly be wrong about this, when I see it regularly taking place right in front of me.
          What is YOUR evidence to the contrary ?

          I’m also intrigued as to why you are so reluctant to accept this, as it already has international acceptance ?

          Are you homophobic ?

          • Karen

            Gonna give you a heads up here..stop reading & experience life. .Pres Putin isn’t gay…time to read another book

          • Psychologist

            I don’t need any “heads up” from idiots thanks !
            Putin is undoubtedly gay, and in denial ! Simple !

          • Karen

            OMG can you guys ever ever comment w/ out insults.? I asked a million times what would make anybody think this MAN is gay..no answer because there is no answer. .really not evey man who passes any kind of law having to do with gays is a closeted gay…oh another heads up for you. .people have actually met him worked with him, etc…the fact that none of that interests you proves you don’t care about the truth you all want to tell youselves he is closeted…will you answer this if its ok that you throw in an insult???? Why are you people so obsessed with Putin? ?.. (don’t expect an answer)

          • Mark Y

            So Mr psychologist, what you are saying is that all the evil world leaders are gay, and in deinal of their sexuality!!!! And you think this because you and some of your therapist freinds have met some closeted cabbages who are in denial of their sexuality. I don’t have anything to prove – it’s not me making claims.If you can prove that putin is gay, or hitler, or any of the other people who I listed, please show me some proof?? Otherwise, it’s all in your head, a theory – it’s not a fact. And btw, your theory sounds like a homophobes theory, it’s used all the time by homophobes. .And don’t forget, Mr psychologist, until recently, your profession used to give us ECT, so don’t get self righteous about pychology having any answers.

          • Steven Gregory

            Why is it that every time you reinterpret what someone else says, you twist it, can’t you deal with what has been written? You come across as argumentative for the sake of stupidity. What point are you trying to make, other than to call names and shake your silly finger?

            Where is your evidence to support your theory? You too are only speculating.

          I don’t need to go to Russia, or meet the idiot called Putin either !
          I’ve seen too many homophones already not to able to recognise one, no matter what country he’s in !
          So Karen …. are you another homophobe too ?
          You do know that ALL PHOBIAS are a psychological disorder ? Including homo-PHOBIA ! From which you clearly suffer !

          • Karen

            Oh ok so you have read some posts & now you know what I suffer from? ?? So only people that agree with you are phobia free?? Yeah.that kind of makes you not real believable as a professional. .so you don’t think people that have been around Pres Putin might know more about him than somebody who has read about him? ?? Your obvious dislike of the president makes your diagnosis alittle suspect….I know you don’t care I am an idiot …everybody who doesn’t think Putin is gay have issues. …too funny. ..BTW…why do you think the late night guys can’t stop talking about Putin yet never mention another country where gays are actually killed? ?? Your professional opinion of course. …I won’t hold my breath …

        Get a grip…it has been shown time and time again that those who shout the loudest are many, but not all times gay themselves. People who are comfortable with their own sexuality do not obsess over gay people, unless they are desperately trying to hide something.

        • Psychologist

          Absolutely correct !

        • Karen

          Get an open mind..for one thing Putin doesn’t obsess over gays..where do you get that? ? You are all obsessing on Putin. .why aren’t you talking about Uganda?? They kill gays ate they all gay???? I have asked that a million times , never an answer.you are all such hypocrits..

  • Psychologist

    PUTIN is gay ?? yes, of course he is !!!!!!!!!
    All people who are obsessed with the homosexuality of SOMEONE ELSE are so obsessed by it, because of what is REALLY going on WITHIN THEMSEVES !
    I’ve come across this hundreds of times during therapy sessions – plus I’ve studied all the world research on homophobia, I’ve written papers on it, and I sometimes lecture on it.
    Break-down the word HOMO-PHOBIA into its TWO parts :- most people are aware that all PHOBIAS (including HOMO-PHOBIA) are a psychological disorder, (and are defined as “an irrational fear of .. something). BUT, where many people (mistakenly) think the fear is of HOMO-SEXUALS (in homophobia) it’s NOT – it’s actually the irrational fear of HOMO-SEXUALITY (that’s a BIG difference) because the HOMOSEXUALITY they are “apparently” irrationally “in-fear of” is THEIR OWN (suppressed homosexuality) !
    In simple terms: – they are IN DENIAL of their TRUE gay feelings and desires (as a direct result of negative religious anti-gay conditioning) and what they FEAR, is those real feelings breaking through their suppression system, thus becoming consciously KNOWN (then perhaps being acted upon) ! (this would be in direct conflict with the anti-gay conditioning).
    It is this constant underlying fear, which manifests itself as “opposing behaviour” (deploying a defence mechanism called REACTION FORMATION) which “appears to be” repulsed by homosexuality – however it is the VERY ATTRACTION to it, which when denied, becomes the OPPOSITE (ie REPULSION to it). ie the apparent REPULSION to homosexuality, is directly due to the denial of the ATTRACTION to it !
    Truly straight men (or women) are INDIFFERENT to the homosexuality of SOMEONE ELSE – ie neither attracted to, nor repulsed by it.
    The ONLY people who display repulsion to homosexuality are the ones who are in denial that they are attracted to it. This is displayed as HOMO-PHOBIA. So it is correct to say that if someone is SO homophobic and appears OBSESSED by the sexual orientation of OTHER PEOPLE (which really has NO AFFECT on THEM) then they would HAVE TO BE gay, and in denial, in order to be that homophobic !
    .

      • Psychologist

        Sorry .. but you have it the wrong way round !
        Why can you not see the obvious ? (I wonder :))

        • Karen

          What do I have the wrong way? ? How often does Putin talk about gays and have often do gay sites talk about Putin? ? You aren’t being honest..you don’t think Mahret, Stewart..talk about Putin too much? ? when do they talk about the sexuality of the Ugangan who puts gays to death? And why won’t any of you here answer that? ? Sorry most of these guys are hot for Putin ….

            Oh that’s right its ok for you open minded people to disparage others but if people don’t agree with you they are called all kinds of names you are all too dumb to realize how hypocritical you are & why nobody takes you seriously

    • Silly Old Bastard

      I don’t believe you are a psychologist at all. If you really are, then you are a
      poor one. I’ve come across many homophobes who are thoroughly heterosexual. On enquiring as to their position, they see gay as a threat to what they see as the natural order.

      • Psychologist

        You’re WRONG ! Simple !
        What evidence do you have to support your claims ?
        How can you possibly know that someone is definitely heterosexual – simply because they told you they were ? Don’t be so stupid !
        I have 30 years experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, and dozens and dozens of experiences of homophobes in therapy, who turned out to be in denial of being gay !

        Genuine heterosexual people are INDIFERENT to the sexual orientation of SOMEONE ELSE !
        Neither repulsed by, nor attracted to !

        • Silly Old Bastard

          Try this. Those people were also racist too. A hidden desire for black skin then. I tell you, they feel threatened is all. As my mother would have put it, someone left you out in the sun for too long.

          • Psychologist

            Your theory is entirely flawed. It’s like you saying tomato soup and mushroom soup are both soup, so should taste the same !
            ALL PHOBIAS are a psychological disorder – and are all individual, unique, and induced for a variety of reasons and drivers.
            They range from:-
            1.learned behaviour and conditioned response
            2.pre-disposed innate fear, with heightened sensations,
            3. irrational fear (which can be a form of paranoia)
            4. Fear of internal issues through being denied/suppressed (which is the case in homophobia).

            Someone being racist on the grounds of the colour of someone else’s skin colour IS NOT a PHOBIA ! It’s RACIST, more than likely as a “conditioned response” !
            So you’re comparing two entirely different things ! Which is why your answer is WRONG !

          • Silly Old Bastard

            Well, clever man. Both are soups so should taste like soup. As for the rest of your argument, you’ve fallen into the trap that homophobia is a phobia IN EVERY CASE. Whereas the word covers a multitude of sins. The biggest ranging
            from dislike, to disgust, to abhorrence and up to sheer hatred. To think it’s taken you 30 years to realise that. What an inadequate you are.

          • Psychologist

            You’ve totally missed the point ! (I wonder why ?)
            ALL PHOBIAS are a psychological disorder ! No matter what at what level the phobia is displayed.
            You are confusing many things which are NOT technically a PHOBIA ! So even worse than comparing different flavours of soup, you’re comparing soup with apples, and wondering why they don’t taste the same.
            I think your just too stupid to understand this. Due to your total lack of ability to understand, you seem to think it makes you look clever to just insult. That really just exposes your lack of sense and stupidity.

          • Silly Old Bastard

            Stop posting like that! I’m the silly old bastard around here, not you!

          • Karen

            You are right of course but there will be no debate you will just be called names because they have no debate their silly theory doesn’t hold up so you will be ignored or insulted..I have asked on many boards for anything that is real in Pres Putin ‘s life that would make anybody think he is gay….never get a response because there is no response….some people are mad at him, hate him whatever….but they know nothing about him. Your anslogy was a great one. .you will get only insults..the more you get the more you know you are on the right track. …Putin has been around for years why all the gay talk all the sudden? ? Wasn’t he gay 5 yrs ago? 10 yrs ago???? In the KGB????

          • Silly Old Bastard

            It’s the oldest trick in the gay militants book Karen. If you are a man and you disagree with homosexuality, you must be a closet self loather. There can be no other explanation in their limited perception.

      • saintlaw

        No one cares, you senile old pig’s bladder.

        • Karen

          Try a convesation with somebody you didagree with without the ridiculous insults..it does make you look silly and you really don’t help your cause..people are allowed to disagree. .

      • kane

        i think you are right there. i mean what you call scores of parents disowning children for being gay, or is that just another flavour of soup?

        • Psychologist

          You’re generalising way too much. if you are going to compare “mushroom soup” with “toffee apples” .. then yes, they are all food you can eat, but the CONTENT of EACH FOOD is entirely different ! THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT !
          HOMOPHOBIA (such as I’ve described in much detail above) is the fear of one’s OWN suppressed homosexuality .. that is a FACT! (read the many pieces of research done on this subject before you criticise)
          However, what you’re NOT understanding is …. other people, who may not technically-speaking actually BE homophobic, may well COLLUDE with (or conform to) the homophobia of someone else (or an institution’s beliefs, such as religious views against homosexuality). Technically they are being “ANT-GAY” rather than literally homophobic. There is a difference ! that difference is :- HOMOPHOBIA is a psychological disorder (as are ALL PHOBIAS) which is DRIVEN (thus caused by) suppression of one’s OWN gay sexual orientation. (ie it is an EMOTIONAL response).

          However, ANTI-GAY views (often referred to as “social homophobia) is NOT as a result of ANY INTERNAL drive, it is merely the product of having been TAUGHT (conditioned) to believe that being gay is wrong (either from parents, religions, or indeed homophobes). (ie it is an ACDEMIC response).

          As a psychological therapist, we work with what DRIVES people’s behaviour (rather than ONLY changing the behaviour) so what is behind someone’s “apparent” or REAL homophobia, is vital to undoing it.
          Again, I am amazed at people fighting me on this, when you have no knowledge with which to back up your claims, and I’m on your side anyway !
          Good grief !

          Plus, to answer your question:- Some parents disown their kids for being gay, perhaps because their religious belief (conditioned into them) says it’s wrong (mushroom soup) – but others may well be in denial that they are gay themselves, and that very denial of their OWN homosexuality, manifests into homophobia (which is then projected outwardly) (toffee apples) .

          Surely you’re not suggesting that every married person who has kids are heterosexual are you ? Oh please !
          I’ve lost count of the number of married men and women who come for therapy because they are confused about having “same-sex desires” !

          • kane

            ‘Technically they are being “ANT-GAY” rather than literally homophobic’

            so technically putin could be just anti-gay

            ‘Surely you’re not suggesting that every married person who has kids are heterosexual are you’

            its not the case of me suggesting anything its the case of you assuming too much.

    With those moobs of his darling, are you joking?!!

    I have never seen so much denial on this board. The psychologist is making perfect sense. How many times have we seen people who are arch enemies of gay people, eventually getting caught in homosexual acts themselves. Anyone who obsesses over gay people, is usually gay themselves and deep in the closet. Heterosexuals who are comfortable with their own sexuality have no issues with us or what we do in bed. Study after study proves that arch-homophobes are usually gay. Geez! How many times does this need to be explained!

    • Psychologist

      Kenthomes – Yes, thank you ! You are indeed correct. Even without applying ANY psychological knowledge to this, the overwhelming number of blatant homophobes with an excessive obsession about homosexuality, who have later been exposed as having gay sex, some even paying rent boys (as in Ted Haggard, the extremist homophobe American TV preacher against homosexuality) plus hundreds and hundreds of others – should surely be telling people that the reason for homophobia is as a direct result of denying one’s OWN homosexuality (in order to conform to negative anti-gay conditioning, often from religions).
      In essence, it really is that simple ! (though the psychological aspects of how this manifests itself can be quite complex, especially when we try to undo this in therapy).
      I am really quite amazed at how many people on here (especially the openly gay people) just do not see what is perfectly obvious – and are even arguing with me about it !

      I EXPECT that attitude from the HOMOPHOBES, obviously ! But from gay people ?????????

      I see men who are homophobic regularly in therapy, some come to me for therapy after having committed homophobic crimes on gay people – where through exploring their homophobia during therapy, they often, eventually admit to having “gay desires” which they have suppressed, then PROJECT the “inner-hatred” for themselves (for having desires which they have been conditioned NOT to have) OUTWARDLY (PROJECTION) onto other openly gay people” THIS IS WHAT HOMOPHOBIA ACTUALLY IS ! (although the word has become used in more general terms to describe someone who simply discriminates against equal rights for gay people – which is referred to as “social-homophobia”).
      So this is NOT just some “theory” – I see it regularly every month during my day to day therapy work. Yet even openly gay people on here are arguing with me …. when I’m on THEIR SIDE, and trying to explain why homophobia happens. !
      As you say …”GEEZ” !!!!!!!!!

        I suspect that some homophobes you see, if not all, admit to being
        repressed just to get away from you. End their immediate suffering, if you like.

    • Karen

      Denial??? Are you honestly saying that any person who doesn’t want sex lit given to kids (any kind) is a closeted homosexual?? ..I don’t want 5 yr olds to see sex lit of anything. .are you a parent? Do you have kids in your life? ?? Who said this man hates anybody? ??? You do know that obama was against gay marriage? Is he gay?? This is just so silly. ..the man had his shirt off in 5 pics yrs ago so he is gay? ??? Is there actually any real thing you see in his real life that you think makes him gay of course you won’t answer. .
      I guess you would agree then that Mahrer, Stewart, etc..are gay & in love with Putin because they discuss his being gay evey day?

    • Karen

      PUTIN isn’t obsessing over gays ..gays are obsessing over Putin. ..Putin has not said one thing about gsys since the Olympics ..when he said one thing. ..get over it with him. …there are leaders that kill gays..why don’t you discuss them????

    • Karen

      How many times do I have to ask why no other world leaders who truly do hate & persecute gays are ever discussed on these sites???? Talk about denial…

  • Helge Vladimir Tiller

    Putin is heterosexual ! He is a big narcissist and admire himself. His alliance with The Church ( as respects gay rights ) is cold and strategic—just to stay in power.

  • Helge Vladimir Tiller

    Not all anti gay persons–far from that- are suffering from Kempfs Disease. AND Putin is not, definitely. Putin is HETEROSEXUAL. Period.

    • Helge Vladimir Tiller

      Nothing in Putins behaviour-over many years-reveals that he is gay. He is “cold-blooded” -analysing his position.

      • Karen

        Have you met him? ?? He is a smart politician .I wouldn’t say cold blooded

        • Helge V.Tiller

          I have friende who have been very “close” to him- so close that they could have kissed him. BUT they didn’t !

          • Helge V.Tiller

            FRIENDS—sorry !

          • Karen

            Ok..that’s interesting..do you mind telling me in what way??? I have no problem telling anybody here my situation..are your friends male or female??..

            ——————————

          • Karen

            Did your friends say he was cold blooded?? I didn’t find him that way at all…

            ——————————

          • Helge Vladimir Tiller

            Yes, they did.

    • Karen

      Putin isn’t even anti gay..he doesn’t care about them…

  • Rehan

    He could be gay, but it’s unlikely: Putin doesn’t, to the best of my knowledge, have a history of homophobia. It seems to me far more likely that his current policies are more a cynical and opportunistic attempt to stir up tribal support among those Russians who find progress frightening and who will consequently see him as a “hard man” bulwark against the “moral decay” of the people he scapegoats.

  • Omar

    Putin is not gay at all. If you said Saudi Arabia King is gay then I believe you.

    ~ GAY IS OKAY ~
    Dear President Putin, apparently you’ve been rumored to be gay — not that there’s anything wrong with that. Let me explain.
    About 2 milleniums ago, some futher-mucking “not really” pharisees (ticklets in the temple) didn’t want the Jesus’n’Thomas men bros to help the Jews and Romans make friends. So the rabid ticklets bit the world in general with their lies about lying.
    The passage says that a couple men LYING together (bearing false witness against their neighbors) is ABOMINABLE.
    Gay men don’t “lie” together. They gayly come out of the closet after cuddling in there together and say, “I’m happy to be me.”
    I’m okay with you being your true yourself, Judo Man, even if that means being a tough macho gay dude.

  • Karen

    Ok here you go. ..is the president of Uganda gay?? He arrests and kills gays??? What about the Saudi kings???? They hate gays???? Are all muslims gay??? They hate gays …are you talking about them??? No..you all continue the Putin is gay thing because you want him to be ..most of you probably have crushes on him……pick on a new real anti gay leader….Putin isn’t gay. .he is never going to be with you. ..get over him. …
    ..

  • Madgeographer

    It’s actually quite offensive for gays to say that Putine was gay. It can be logical that he has a repressed personality, but I think he doesn’t really mind gay people as such.

    Russia is on a verge of a revolution. Protests are organised frequantly, so Putin needs scapegoats to justify failtures of Russia such as huge corruption, lack of structural reforms and growing isolation of the Russian state. Obviously he can’t blame the Jews, but blaming rich Russians is just right. But it wasn’t enough. Gays apparently are to blame. But even that wasn’t enough. Now the Ukraine is to blame for Russian failtures.

    Putin is good in distracting the society he rules, but is he able to look into the mirror?

  • Steven Gregory

    Putin “could” be gay, but he simply misses his potential.
