    Not at all funny in the slightest... shows the slightly sinister side of the repression of gay rights in Russia and parts of the formerly Eastern bloc.

    Oh a gay man was punched! HILARIOUS! LOL THAT WAS SO KOOL THANKX FOR SHOWING IT TO US ROSSOUK!!!11!!!!!!1!!

    It was obvious he wasn't arrested. He asked for somebody to get him out of there, so the police protected him while they got him out of the crowd.

    I think you'll have to explain the hilarity of this one to your confused readership. Perhaps I'm missing something.

    Then again, perhaps you're the one who's missing something.

    Actually...according to some reports he was detained by the police while his attacker was allowed to go free. Looks like they also attacked the singer from Right Said Fred and others as well.

    Sad. Just sad. :(

    Seriously, can incidents like this be any surprise when the Mayor of Moscow inflammatorily denounces the parade as a 'Satanist happening'?

    How many journalists killed in Russia over the past few years? There's a bunch of thugs in charge.

    Very sad. Most of the Russians I know are not bigoted like this. Unfortunately, as Arinance and rossoUK demonstrate, there are people of low moral character in every country. You two should be very, very ashamed of yourselves.

    Hilarious. I only wish they went further. Why not shoot the guy? After all, he was plainly guilty of being different.
    Yes, way to keep those minorities down!

    There is nothing funny about this. What the hell are people thinking when they support physically attacking someone they disagree with?

    WTF is wrong with you? I can tell you this- if that happened to me, I wouldn't be asking the cops for help. I'd jump on the MF- just goes to show you that Peter Tatchell is a better guy than me. I admire him for not doing it, but I doubt I'd be able to contain myself. Good for him and shame on you, rossoUK.:mad:

    And what exactly is good about that?

    What a bizarre thread. First we have the freak who thinks it is funny, then the one who supports Russia's leadership in their choice to make the country as pathetic as possible. The only way it could get any better is if we could throw in someone from the far, far religious right with a rant about homosexuality, massages, and recreational drugs. Although you do have to talk what you know...

    oh, and I forgot, we need a Nambla representative to present a balanced picture.

    Excuse me, what? :confused: Do NOT EVER put NAMBLA on our level. They're despicable human beings. :mad: What exactly is your point?

    For arresting a guy for being beat up?

    I don't get it. :confused:

    Other end of the extreme that has nothing to do with anything I assume. ;)

    There's a piece in today's Guardian about this. Members of the European Parliament were also arrested and according to witnesses, were also attacked upon release from the police station, including by a priest.

    Question is: How did a rabble of neo-Nazis, skinheads and religiously-inspired cretins know where they were held and when they were due to be released?

    Anyone who thinks this is in the slightest bit funny needs to grow up or have their head examined, or both.

    "Someone protect me, someone protect me..."

    What?? No Pepper Spray in that handbag of yours??

    (That wasn't a gay-slur, just the fact that he sounds like a sissy because some guy laid a crappy punch on him)
