t.A.T.u Singer Julia Volkova Condemns Gay Men: 'I Would Condemn A Gay Son'
t.A.T.u singer Julia Volkova has been accused of making bizarre anti-gay statements during a Russian television interview. In it she maintains that she would condemn a gay son because "a real man must be a real man."
We don't have any Russian speakers on staff, so we'd love it if any of our Instinct readers that speak the language would chime in with verification of what she says in this clip, below. (A translation follows the clip.)
According to the translation provided on the YouTube video, Volkova says:
Questioner: Will you condemn your son, if he is gay?
- Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of... I won't support gay son.
Questioner: Stop stop... you just told me that you do not mind if your daughter was a lesbian. You were talking about freedom ...
- This only applies to a daughter, not a son.
Questioner: So you think that freedom can only be for women?
- I think for men it's a bad freedom.
In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men.
And a man has no right to be a fag.
Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing.
But! I want to say that I'm not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a fag.
I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest.
I do not blame anyone.
Interesting that she doesn't appear to have the same problems with lesbians. Volkova's comments are especially disturbing considering she's clearly profited off of her gay audience.
What's your take on Volkova's surprising comments?
