Russian Parliament Passes Law Banning LGBT Propaganda
On November 24, 2022, the Russian State Duma approved the third reading of a bill that would ban propaganda that promotes deviant sexual relations, pedophilia, and propaganda that could cause individual to pursue a gender reassignment surgical procedure.
This bill prohibits LGBT propaganda potentially featured in the corporate press, the Internet, books, commercials, and movies. Moreover, content that advocates for gender reassignment among the youth in audiovisual services, books, commercials, the corporate press, the Internet, and movies will be banned.
Movies featuring content that promotes sexually deviant behavior or preferences will be prohibited from being shown on the Russian silver screen.
According to TASS, under this prohibition, children will have restricted access to LGBT information on paid audio or video platforms. For example, viewers will be requested to enter a code or take additional steps to verify their age. Russian individuals under the age of 8 will not be able to access LGBT information.
The TASS report noted what some of these anti-degeneracy provisions included:
The bill also stipulates a ban on selling merchandise, including imported items, which contain material that is administratively or criminally liable for disseminating any information of this sort. A provision on propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, pedophilia and information capable of causing minors to seek gender reassignment surgery will be added to the law protecting children from any information harming their health or development.
Nearly 400 legislators, which includes Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, authored the bill. “We are following a different path chosen by our grandparents and great-grandparents. We have traditions, and we have a conscience, and we understand that we should think about our children, our families, and our country in order to preserve and protect [the values that] our parents handed down to us,” Volodin declared.
One of the least discussed aspects that motivates the Collective West’s hatred towards Russia is the fact that it at least offers opposition to the degenerate globohomo agenda. Russia is not only a controversial geopolitical actor that challenges the so-called “rules-based” international order and unipolar moment, but also the LGBT degeneracy these same nations promote.
For that reason, among others, Russia will constantly be demonized by Western elites.
