about the Chechnya - lgbt violence. ^this. this is actually true, but none of the articles covers that I don’t know why.
i hate what’s going on there, I can’t stand the president of Chechnya. I was ready to vomit and cry when i read the article. but i really can’t stand when Tumblr assumes Chechnya=the whole russia. In fact, it’s a republic with their own rules and system and president. and I would never go there in my sane mind, even though officially it’s Russia. and 99% people I know think the same. and if you read the article, not only police was violent but gays’ families also. their own families were killing them because of the religion and pride. say what you want, it’s true. and I’m not anti-Islam, we do have another Muslim republic in Russia, Tatarstan, and it’s one of the most progressive places. it’s totally totally different from Chechnya. but again, the problem isn’t the whole Russia (though it is homophobic but not that extreme) and please shut the fuck up with ‘what the hell is wrong with fucking Russia’ comments I’ve been seeing. the problem is people. the problem is fucking religious homophobia and conservative traditions and EXTREMELY toxic cult of masculinity developed in Chechnya by its president Ramzan Kadyrov. now I’m going to sign petitions, have a good day Tumblr
