THIS IDEA IS SO SO SO BAD YOU HAVE NO IDEA
Basically, they’re meaning to send 10,000 pro-gay coloring books to Russian children if their post gets 100,000 notes.
First of all, those books might not make it in at all. Despite saying that they packages will be disguised, if they send 10,000 books, some of them are bound to be discovered by authorities, and THAT WILL MEAN TROUBLE. If nothing more, they will at least be a reason for the government to tighten mailing laws or take further action against pro-gay activists.
Secondly, even if the books DO get through to families, if they are discovered in children’s or their parents’ hands, those people will definitely be in a lot of trouble. Being pro-gay and pro-trans is illegal in Russia, and owning this book would be pretty solid proof of being that. Not good.
THIS IS A METHOD FOR SPREADING AWARENESS IN THE WEST. THIS WILL JUST GET PEOPLE IN TROUBLE.
it’s dan savage i’m not fuckign suprised
before this he made a bunch of noise about boycotting stoli vodka
which isn’t even fucking made in russia
this is absolutely the dumbest fucking shit i’ve ever seen like goddamn you could start sneaking funding to homeless shelters that take in gay and trans youth come the fuck on but instead you want to get families with kids in trouble? the book is a bunch of patronizing dishonest shit too like there’s a picture of a kid with a t-shirt on saying ‘some chicks marry chicks get over it’ in english and yeah that’s really going to help an eight year old grapple with a culture that can and will beat them to death
this is going to do absolutely the opposite of actually helping anything
