Poll: Russians even More virulently Anti-Gay now than in the past

More Russians oppose same-sex relationships than they did nearly a decade ago, according to a new survey released Friday.

Russia’s independent Levada Center pollster said 69% of respondents disagreed with the statement that “adults have the right to enter into same-sex relationships by mutual consent.”

That share has grown from 60% in 2013, when Russia adopted its controversial “gay propaganda” law that banned promotion of homosexuality among minors.

LGBT activists criticized the law for further marginalizing minority groups across the country and stifling their freedoms in favor of promoting conservative “traditional values” that Russia’s leaders say are at odds with liberal Western attitudes.

NEWS Russia Proposes ‘Extremist’ Label for LGBT, Feminist, Child-Free Movements READ MORE The Levada survey showed an increasing split in how Russian society views same-sex relationships, with those in support increasing slightly from 23% in 2013 to 25%. The proportion who said they were undecided declined from 17% to 7%, following years in which the issue of LGBT rights has become a prominent part of the government’s anti-Western messaging on state television.

“In other words, public opinion on this issue has grown more polarized than ever,” Levada said.

Respondents aged 18-24 expressed the most support for same-sex couples, with 53% backing adults’ right to enter into a same-sex relationship. Some 39% held the opposing view.

As the age of respondents’ increased, support for same-sex couples declined and opposition increased markedly.

Asked about their personal views of gay people, more respondents expressed “disgust” and “fear” (38%) than in 2013 (26%), Levada said. At the same time, the share of those who viewed people who identify as homosexual in a neutral light has grown from 23% to 32% over the same period.

For the most part, Russians seem mean and stupid. Those peasant genes are strong

In a christian country?????

According to DL anti-Muslim trolls, this only happens in Muslim countries, NEVER in Christians countries.

The fact that we can have gay pride parades apparently means Christians all love us!

If Chaturbate is any indication, they don't mind gay tokens.

Russia lives in the dark ages. It contributes less than 2% of the world economy.

Let's stop pretending it's a superpower at any level.

They polled 1,600 people in a country with a population of nearly 150 million...What possible conclusions could one make from such a paltry sample size? I'm sure most older Russians believe that the state is monitoring their responses to such surveys and alter their answer accordingly.

Uh no. It’s called scientific polling

Russian men still have testosterone and don’t carry their balls in their purse like cucked western men.

I have a feeling I will end up in Russia someday and will go to down blowing deserving alpha Russian men.

They are flithy scum of the earth in so many ways. I wish there was a way to engineer a virus that would kill only Russians and no one else. Nothing but miserable wretches.

Then why is Miss Lindsey such an adored celebrity in Russia?

How remarkable that in a totalitarian state the (hand-picked?) majority agrees with the dictatorship. Will wonders ever cease?

How do they answer survey questions when they're drunk and selling their bodies for food constantly?

It’s called cheap vodka, darling.

Shame. They've got some really hot men.

Did they parse out the opposition by age?

by Anonymousreply 15October 16, 2021 1:39 AM

They did. I see.

Why did they leave the older respondents out? I would have been interested in the older too.

Probably a response to the trans takeover we've all endured.

Interesting how the most well known Russian male porn stars freely move between gay and straight porn (Falcon Al and Oliver Strelly come to mind)
