    I wonder why gays are fighting for their right? It is we – normal people, who must fight for our rights now. We do not organize any parades or so on and so forth. We live normal life. They can be gays, but there is no need to emphasize this fact. Marriages and having kids for gays is sick, not normal. I wonder what has I common Cher’s visit to Russia and Russian laws. She is not Russian and is not Russian citizen. So, she better stays in the states and “fight” for the right of truly sick people there.
