Russia now wants to strip Gay parents of their parental rights.

Russian lawmaker has now introduced amendments to the Family Code that would deny gay parents custody of their own children.

If passed by Russia’s Duma, the changes proposed by State Duma deputy Alexei Zhuravlev, would make so-called “non traditional sexual orientation” a valid basis for depriving gay people of their of parental rights. Other grounds for denying parental custody include alcoholism, drug use, and abuse.

“If one of the child’s parents indulges in sexual contact with persons of the same sex, the damage to the child’s psyche is immense as a mother or father serves as an example for their offspring,” Russia’s RT News quotes Zhuravlev as saying.

Russian president Vladimir Putin already signed off on legislation that prohibits gay couples in foreign countries from adopting Russian children, as well as a measure that bans promotion of “nontraditional sexual relations” among minors.

Another Russian MP Mikhail Degtyarev, a Moscow mayoral candidate has suggested offering LGBT Russians free consultations with mental health professionals to help them “return to normal life and become heterosexuals, as are 95 to 99 percent of our citizens.”

We need an intervention in Russia, not Syria. This is really some backwards bullshit.
