Just when you thought those ‘friendly’ guys in Russia couldn’t get any more hateful they go and do this…

Their edition of Maxim magazine have published a list of celebrities that they ‘forgive’ for their sexual orientation and it’s utterly disgraceful.

For fuck sake, like they have anything to be sorry for!? In an article headlined ‘Gays we Respect’ the mag explains its shocking stance on homosexuality… and it’s pretty horrendous.

They said:

We, men, do not consider men who love men to be men. This is the rule. But there are exceptions. There are gays who have earned our respect and the right to remain real men in our eyes.

‘Exceptions’ to this ludicrous ‘rule’ include lead singer of Queen Freddie Mercury, actors Neil Patrick Harris and Ian McKellen and Judas Priest’s Rob Halford.

Stephen Fry also made this ‘prestigious’ list for being “the living embodiment of the idea that one can be openly gay and a sensible person at the same time”. Right, that makes loads of sense…

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, the magazine’s editor said, “our position is clearly formulated in the introduction of the article.” Yeah, a very homophobic position, ay?

A spokesperson for U.S. Maxim, however, was rightly quick to denounce the article: “We are deeply disturbed by the article in Maxim Russia and fully condemn it. It is entirely against the views of US Maxim.”

The country’s stance on homosexuality beggars belief and we can only hope that their will soon be a huge cultural shift to change these outdated, bigoted views.
