Reading Material - Russia's "Anti-Gay" Law
Instead of a typical blog post this week, I wanted to share with you something I found to be quite interesting and, in some ways, enlightening. Linked below is a 72-page report analyzing Russian Federation Federal Law No. 135-FZ, which you probably know as the Russian Anti-Gay Law. After hearing a podcaster's comments on how the law didn't seem to be as bad as the news media were making it out to be, the author of this document set out on a research quest to prove said podcaster wrong. The results of that research were a bit of a surprise.

I won't spoil the conclusions the author comes to, but those who are more interested in actual information as opposed to whatever we're getting from the news media these days owe it to themselves to set aside an hour of their lives to check this out.
