Russian President Vladimir Putin is defending his ban on same-sex marriage, by pointing out that the Russian constitution defines “marriage” as an act between a man and a woman.

Given that fact, Putin says that it’s his “duty” to stop gay people from getting married.

Putin has said he is not prejudiced against gay people, but that he finds a Western willingness to embrace homosexuality and gender fluidity out of step with traditional Russian values.

Last June, Putin said Russian authorities had a “relaxed and unprejudiced” attitude towards LGBT people. He also said that decisions about “gender identity” could only be made by adults.

Russian law bans “propaganda of homosexuality among minors.” In other words, there is no “Drag Queen Story Hours” in Russia.

Vladimir Putin said the Russian constitution should define marriage as between a man and a woman and nothing else, a senior politician said.

Putin – who previously said it is his ‘duty’ to stop gay people from getting married in an attempt to ‘reinforce families’ – proposed the changes as part of a far-reaching political shake-up in Russia.

He and his supporters consider the impending change an opportunity to enshrine what they see as Russia’s core moral and geopolitical values for future generations.

Homosexuality in Russia – where the influence of the socially conservative Orthodox Church has grown in recent years – was a criminal offence until 1993, and classed as a mental illness until 1999.

Under Russian law, only heterosexual couples can adopt children in Russia.

Under the law, any event or act regarded by the authorities as an attempt to promote homosexuality to minors is illegal and punishable by a fine.

The law has been used to stop gay pride marches and to detain gay rights activists.

Liberal activists and groups have attacked Putin for standing up for his country’s traditional values.

Well, on the bright side – at least for now, bakeries in Russia are safe from being used into bankruptcy.
