To paraphrase a much smarter person than me: The show doesn’t have to go on! It’s the last thing that must go on!
I think in the face of human rights being violated, you should probably abstain from entertainment. You have to be pretty fucked up or very ignorant to give money to a bunch of people who torture homosexuals. If i were to strip away a few middle hands and make the scenario a bit more easier to understand, i would say that you’re giving Nazis a bunch of money (because the Olympics is big business) just to see an athlete do things.
But if that doesn’t phase you, then perhaps this will:
Boycott Sochi! Don’t give your money to these horrible human beings! Make a stand against human rights violations! Show Russia that we won’t tolerate this behavior! Now is the time to do what’s right, not to be entertained!
Disclaimer: I know Russia is not the same as Nazi Germany. Although it is really close! And i know it’s not all Russians, obviously. But in chunk, and as a country, they permit the torture of homosexuals. That’s what i mean with “horrible people”.
