@craig_atherton @samanthastyler Sorry, I should have stated it in a better way. What is going on there for LGBT people is just one of many horrible things happening in the world. All of the things you listed are extremely disturbing and sad.

The difference is that Russia is under more scrutiny than usual by the media because of the Olympics coming up, and there are many possibilities for awareness on THAT particular issue to increase to the point where something can be done. It's not that the other problems in the world aren't as significant, it's just that this particular one is one where we can show Russia that we do not agree with their nonsensical, hateful, and discriminatory new set of rules. 

I don't see it as an issue with Russia, I see it as an issue with human rights. No matter what country did that, I would be against it. It's definitely not the only reason that I (and many others) are boycotting.

@craig_atherton @samanthastyler Of course there is nowhere that has "clean hands", but what is currently going on in Russia is one of the more blatantly cruel and horrific current events, and the world spotlight is on them as they are about to host the Olympics. The rights and safety of any gay, perceived to be gay, or LGBT-supportive athletes, family members, and fans from around the world are at risk. Moving the Olympics is not going to happen, but it would show Russia that their ridiculous and hateful policies are not tolerated.

In an ideal world, I'd love to see the Olympics MOVED, not cancelled- however unlikely that is. The stuff going on there with their new anti-gay laws is disgusting and absolutely terrifying. At least something needs to be done.

 @Medvjed004 I was at the game last night! 3rd star was Brassard, 2nd was Richards, and 1st was Clowe. There were a lot of cheers for the new guys.
