You may know Julia Volkova as the raven-haired member of the fake lesbian Russian pop duo t.A.T.u, which most recently was seen performing at the fiasco that was the Sochi Olympics. Being that Volkova and her partner Lena Katina built their entire music career on the ruse of being teenage lesbians, you’d think that she might be sensitive to the homosexual community — especially living in Russia, where gays already face severe prejudice and discrimination.
Nope! Volkova is as bad as the rest of her homophobic Russian brethren, and during a recent interview on a Russian television program, says that she would condemn her son if he turned out gay, in addition to some other colorful rhetoric.
The video of the interview is in Russian, obviously — but the YouTube description is helpfully translated:
Will you condemn your son, if he is gay?
Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of. I won’t support gay son.
Just so you know she’s not a total hypocrite, she’s still down with the lesbians:
Stop stop… you just told me that you do not mind if your daughter was a lesbian. You were talking about freedom.
This only applies to a daughter, not a son.
So you think that freedom can only be for women?
I think for men it’s a bad freedom. In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men. And a man has no right to be a fag.
Because really, it just boils down to aesthetics, obviously:
Two girls together – not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing.
And then she pulls the ultimate “I can be a bigot” card:
But! I want to say that I’m not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a fag.
I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest.
Gays of Russia: I am so sorry. If this is an example of someone who is supposed to be gay-friendly, I can only imagine what the rest of the country is like. Come to America! We love gays here! Heck, we’ll even throw you a parade or four.
