We’re used to hearing the LGBT community blamed for a lot of things.
An earthquake strikes? Some pious bigot will invoke God’s wrath against homosexuals.
Birds die? A True Believer will clue you into it being gay people wanting marriage rights that did it.
Hurricane Katrina? There’s a homophobe waiting to remind you: gay parade, duh.
Volcanic eruptions? Yeah, still gay people.
Ebola? Also gay people.
9/11? Also, apparently, the fault of LGBT people, according to some bloviating believers.
There are many more examples where those came from. In fact, there’s not much that gets attributed to LGBT folks that surprises me anymore, no matter how absurd. But, I have to admit, Russia managed to find one.
Yeah, for real (I wish I was joking). According to the Russian government, transgender and transsexual people suffer from disorders that contribute to high accident rates.
