When the ‘tough’ guys start killing people and banning doctored pictures of themselves then that’s when it is time to really lay it on as thick as their makeup. Putin, who cares if you are straight or gay? Based on images, for which you pose, you just try too hard to ‘prove’ your masculinity. Sticks ‘n stones, Putin, sticks ‘n stones. To that end we offer our rendition of ‘V Lad Put-in’, which is an amalgamation of several other images floating around on the Inet.
Our next endeavors should be of the ‘Crazy Fat Kid’ and the ‘PJ Pukes’.
From telegraph.co.uk dated 4/6/2017 entitled, “Russia bans ‘extremist’ picture of Vladimir Putin as a gay clown“:
Russia has banned a picture depicting President Vladimir Putin in heavy makeup as “extremist.”
Russia’s justice ministry added the image, which depicts the Russian president in lipstick and mascara, to its list of banned extremist material last week.
The Vladimir-Putin-as-a-gay-clown meme appeared after Russia introduced a controversial “gay propaganda” law in 2013.
The meme produced a host of images, and was even played on by Scottish brewery Brewdog for a special edition beer called “Hello my name is Vladimir.”
According to the description posted on the justice ministry’s register, the ban applies specifically to a picture posted on Vkontakte, a Russian social network, that is intended to represent “the supposed nonstandard sexual orientation of the president of the Russian Federation” and carries the caption: “Putin voters… they say there are lots of them, but there aren’t any among the people I know.”
The picture was one of several posted by a man called Alexander Tsvetkov which were banned by a court in Tver, a city northwest of Moscow, in May last year.
The “gay propaganda” law, which bans the promotion of homosexuality to minors, was criticized as state-sponsored homophobia and a sop to extreme a conservative constituency.
Mr Putin said at the time that the law was not an attack on homosexuality, which is legal in Russia, but an attempt to protect children.
The Putin photograph is the 4,071th banned item on the register of 4,074 banned materials that also includes Nazi imagery, white power slogans, and jihadist websites encouraging terrorism.
Earlier this week reports emerged of systematic torture and killing of gay men in Chechnya.
Novaya Gazeta, a Russian newspaper, and human rights groups said this week that they had seen evidence that security forces loyal to Ramzan Kadyrov, the president of the republic, had been rounding up suspected gay men, beating them, and threatening them with death.
At least 100 people have been detained and three people killed during the campaign, the paper reported.
The Russian branch of Human Rights Watch said the account in Novaya Gazeta was consistent with multiple reports the group has received from trusted sources over the past several weeks.
A spokesman for Mr Kadyrov called the accusations “absolute lies and disinformation”, contending that there were no gay people in Chechnya.
The spokesman added: “If there were such people in Chechnya, law-enforcement agencies wouldn’t need to have anything to do with them because their relatives would send them somewhere from which there is no returning.”
