It’s pretty common knowledge that the public opinion on same-sex marriage has shifted greatly in the last four years. This has produced a happy case of schadenfreude with the Republican party, which not very long ago made gay marriage a primary issue to win elections by appealing to Evangelicals. Now it’s becoming clear that you [...]
In Russia it’s about to become illegal to tell your children about homosexuality. A bill that stigmatizes gay people and bans giving children any information about homosexuality won overwhelming approval Tuesday in Russia’s lower house of parliament.
