Quote# 116507

A lawyer in Novosibirsk has called for a ban on stories about a goat and a tiger in a national park in Russia's Far East, arguing that the widespread media coverage of the pair is 'covert gay propaganda' and poses a threat to Russian children.

The animals gained worldwide fame when Amur the tiger failed to pounce on a goat named Timur after it was released into his enclosure at the Primorye Safari Park as dinner.

Instead of eating his prey, Amur developed an unlikely friendship with the goat and the two were filmed walking around the park together, charming media audiences worldwide. YouTube videos of the pair received millions of hits.

But lawyer Alexei Krestianov has appealed to the General Prosecutor's Office to ban future coverage because it poses a threat to the rights of children, a copy of the letter published on his personal Facebook page on Wednesday, said.

The letter argued that the “positive” exposure given to the “non-traditional co-habitation” of two male animals was “an intrusion into the private lives of underage citizens and covert gay propaganda, as well as an active imposition of homosexuality.”

Krestianov added the stories could have a negative influence on the formation of children's personalities by “arousing interest in non-traditional sexual relationships” and causing confusion over their sexual identities.

at most, I see a metaphor for different groups live in harmony despite their differences. a symbol for peace and the promised utopia in the messiah days.

why everything is sex with you guys?

The subconscious will express itself one way or another.

Ah, the unnatural, so natural they have to stop it by artificial decree.

The story will make bronze age goat fuckers have an insatiable lust to fuck goats.

If Krestianov had film of the tiger and the goat having sex, you bet he'd be exploiting it for all it was worth.

According to a subset of Russians, all russian children are weakminded to the point that if you tell them that they are elephants, they will believe you.

Man, why can't these guys stick to the friendship thing? Maybe they're actually projecting?

Unless the tiger is humping the goat, I don't see how you can make the connection that this story is about gay animals. That is, unless Alexei is hiding deep in the closet.

We musnt tell the story of Androcles and the Lion either.

Whereas Rin Tin Tin (boy and dog) and the Lone Ranger (man and horse) are positively obscene.

To say nothing of Tin Tin ( dog, young man and drunken middle-aged sailor) we must protect children from such filth

Seems more like multiculturalism propaganda then homosexual propaganda to me.

I think the vodka, cheeki breeki, and squatting is really starting to get to the Russians' brains.

I can think of a million things wrong with the story of the tiger and the goat, but most of them have to do with why was a captive tiger given live prey? There is a reason sanctuaries give butchered meat and it has nothing to do with human sensibilities. Especially since captive big cats are sometimes declawed (USDA used to recommend it, now they are neutral.) Gay sex never once entered my mind. What's wrong wtih you.

Only in the minds of homophobes will they see a pray and a predator co-existing in the same area, and immediately think "these animals are homosexuals."

Apparently now, a heartwarming story of two very different animals (one of whom was intended to kill and eat the other) becoming the best of friends (yes, they were FRIENDS, not romantic partners) that was going to be made into a children's book (that could teach children about putting aside differences and living in peace and harmony, a much-needed moral in such times) is being targeted for an absolutely baseless accusation.

Religious fundamentalism at it's most extreme,paranoid, and finest.

@musicalbookworm

They probably gave the tiger the goat to allow it to learn the hunting skills it would have gained in the wild.

Though knowing Asia, they could have simply given it a live goat to provide a spectacle for the audiences watching.

Seems more like the tiger was lonely and wanted a friend more then a meal. Doesn't seem to be any thing sexual about that.

This has got to be a Poe on Krestianov's part, or else he is too stupid to be a lawyer, or indeed too stupid to find his own ass with both hands and a flashlight. Perhaps he has political aspirations.

Somebody needs to take a cruise on Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride.



Oh, and about that tiger....

Yes, I have to agree, I've always thought the exploits of Winnie the Pooh and friends was outrageous as well.

Is this actually a big story?

Yes, this guy's a lawyer. Yes, he filed an official complaint or something. But he's just some guy publishing something on his personal Facebook account.

To be clear, this is not me criticizing us for discussing the story. We discuss stupid stuff written on the internet all the time; it's in our wheelhouse. How the hell did this get an article in The Moscow Times? I'm assuming that's a real and serious newspaper. "A guy has a crackpot conspiracy theory about gay people and posted a thing about it on his Facebook" doesn't seem like a real news story to me.

Whoops apparently it wasn't a children's book based of the duo, it was ACTUAL media coverage of the duo that ticked him off.

Even worse.

I wouldn't worry about it Alexei, eventually they'll run out of goats.
