LGBT RUSSIA LAW 69! As you may know I have been to Russia for my film projects, and have been reporting back for  The new “Gay Propaganda” law conflating homosexuality with child abuse is a travesty designed to distract from a failing economic policy of the Putin administration. Our LGBTQ activist friend in Russia Mike Thomas (westernized moniker of his actual identity, Mikhael Tumasov) translates the law for us here: (excuse grammatical translation errors–text is largely accurate)  EXECUTIVE SUMMARY to the draft federal law “On Amending Article 69 of the Family Code The Russian Federation” In accordance with Paragraph 1 of Article 63 of the Family Code Federation  (hereinafter-the Code), parents are responsible for the upbringing and development of their children. They are obliged to take care of the health, physical, mental, spiritual and moral development of their children. Furthermore, Paragraph 1 of Article 65 of the Code establishes general rules for the implementation parental rights, which can not be in contradiction with the children’s interests. Fulfilling their parental rights, parents are not allowed to harm the physical and mental health of children, their moral development. The methods of raising children should exclude neglectful, cruel or degrading treatment, abuse or exploitation of children. In a literal sense, Code requires parents of minor children do possible to form a complete person, as in the physical and in the spiritual sense. It requires educate the child traditional family values, loyalty to the Fatherland, respect for the older generation, and many other common human values by life lessons, and sometimes by examples. The family, as the fundamental group unit of society, is the first and the most important development institution and education of the child. Unfortunately, experience shows that often the parents are not in full volume fulfill the responsibilities of raising children, depriving them of moral compass, and sometimes material support. In most cases, the reason for this is alcoholism, drug addiction, promiscuity and immoral lifestyle. In such environment the child can not fully develop, obtain necessary support and counsel from parents. As a result, it is the reason for the low level of development, the degradation of the individual child and deviant behavior. Timely assistance to such a child from the State can correct his education by transferring to foster care, the care of relatives or the relevant institution. Implement this assistance is only possible after the deprivation parental rights, allowing the child to fence off immoral way the lives of his parents or one of them. Thus, in accordance with Article 69 of the Code of parents may be deprived parental rights in cases where they are: shirk responsibilities of parents, including the willful refusal to pay child support; refuse without good reason to take their child out of Maternity Hospital  (department) or from other medical institutions educational institutions, social protection of the population, or of similar organizations; abuse their parental rights; mistreated children, including physical exercise or mental violence against them, infringe their sexual integrity; are suffering from chronic alcoholism or drug addiction; committed an intentional crime against the life or health of the children or against the life or health of the spouse. Of the above list shows that the main reasons for the deprivation parental rights lie in the plane of antisocial lifestyle drastically differing from the traditional values of the Russian State. They are all negatively affect the psyche of the child and not can serve as a model for education. The other most important institution is the education of children society, which forms the identity of the child in later life, protecting it from unwanted exposure and negative information. Thus, for example, the Federal Law of 29.0613 № 115- FZ” On Amending the Article 5 of the Federal Law” On Protection of children from information harmful to their health and development,” and some legislative Acts of the Russian Federation in order to protect children from information advocating rejection of traditional family values,” (hereinafter-Act) protects children from the propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, information on which is extremely dangerous for the fragile psyche child and is able in the future to break his sexual self-determination. Following the letter of the law, such propaganda is banned not only in the media media, but also in the family. On the basis of the explanatory note Law” propaganda of non-traditional family relationships dangerous for children and young people, is not capable of a critical attitude to the avalanche information that falls on them, every day. “Also justification of the Act states that: “The family, motherhood and childhood in their Traditionally, the ancestors of the perceived understanding are those values that provide a continuous alternation of generations, act for the preservation and development of the multinational people of the Russian Federation, and therefore require special protection from the state. The legitimate interests of minors are important social value, with a goal of public policy for children is to protect them from the factors that negatively affect their physical, intellectual, mental, spiritual and moral development. Paragraph 1 of Article 14 of the Federal Law of 24.07.1998 № 124- FZ” On basic guarantees of children’s rights in the Russian Federation” right provides that the authorities of the Russian Federation to take measures to protect the child from information, advocacy and agitation, harmful to their health, moral and spiritual development.” This administrative liability imposed by law, provides not for the fact of homosexual rights, and only for the promotion of non-traditional sexual relationships among Minors. On this basis , it appears that in the case of one of the assumptions parents of a child sexual contact with persons of the same sex, harm , which may be caused psyche own child is huge and not can be measured by the Code of Administrative Violations, as a mother or father is a role model for example their child. In confirmation of this is provided by the Research Doctor of Sociology, University of Texas at Austin (USA) Mark Regnus that from 2010 to 2012 analyzed psychological characteristics of young people whose parents had same-sex relationships. The research, which was attended by about 3000 thousand people. showed that only 60-70% of the respondents identified themselves as completely heterosexual, with more than 90% of people who raised in traditional families, referred to as a fully heterosexual. Among other results of the study include: 1. Elevated levels of sexually transmitted diseases among the studied persons  (about 25% of the respondents, those from traditional families-8%); 2. Risk of suicide (about 25%, those of the traditional family – 5%); 3. Socio-economic helplessness (28%-the unemployed , is that in traditional families – 8 %); 4. Disorder of sexual self-orientation (see above); 5. The inability to store family loyalty (40% of the respondents individuals, 13%-the traditional family). The results of these studies have been thoroughly tested independent experts and not in doubt. in analyzing the research scientist, should provide statistical data characterizing parameters of the test questions. Since the estimated Russian experts in the number of people with different sexual orientation about 5-7% (for large cities the percentage is slightly higher). At least a third part of them are children. Based on this fact and the above arguments , the present bill proposes to add to article 69 of the Family Code Russian Federation with a new paragraph, in accordance with which grounds for termination of parental rights would be the fact of gay parents or one of them.  There you have it: a scary law based on faulty science and trumpeting The Fatherland.
