  1. I think activists need to focus their ire on our home-grown all-American bigots like the Duck Dynasty and the A&E network and their sponsors. Let’s boycott Indiana and all its companies. Let’s boycott every anti-marriage equality state and nation. Let’s boycott all those states which HQ anti-LGBT organizations like Focus on the Family.
    LGBT activists should have a presence at the Sochi Olymipics and support all non-bigoted athletes rather than boycott it.
    Seriously, when California voters passed the anti-gay Proposition 8, I don’t recall calls for boycotting all of California although we targeted the individual businesses who funded it.
    This scatter-shot kind of boycott is counter-productive because it punishes the innocent liberal Russians along with the bigots.

    I came out in 1969 when sodomy laws made it a crime to be gay in every state in the USA and we risked imprisonment just to congregate in a public place. Russia is still quite liberal when compared to terror of persecution I went through in my youth in California.
