In news that will surely make you the angrier than you've ever been in a while.
Yulia Volkova, one of the singers for the band t.A.T.u, who's famously known for making out with her bandmate Lena Katina in the music video for the song All The Things She Said, has said some horrendously homophobic remarks.
In a recent interview on Russian TV (you know how tolerant Russia is of gay people), Yulia was asked if she'd condemn her son if he was gay. This was her ugly response, translated:
"Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of… I won't accept a gay son. I think for men it's a bad freedom. In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men. And a man has no right to be a f*g. Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing. But I want to say that I'm not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a f*g. I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is a little better than the rest."
No. Just absolutely no.
We're glad you think gay people are better than murderers, Yulia, but you are TOTALLY against gays.
A man has every right to have any sexual orientation, just as every woman has every right to have any sexual orientation.
This is 2014, Yulia. Grow up.
