Russians Want to Cure Homosexuals

by our Editors in Lifestyle & Fashion , 12 mei 2016

The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation has proposed for hospitals and psychiatric institutions to set up examination rooms to treat homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders.

Health officials describe the rooms as part of a treatment for gender identity disorders, and disorders of sexual orientation, which they describe as mental and behavioural disorders.

These examination rooms would be set up in hospitals and psychiatric clinics, where patients can be advised on gender identification and sexual orientation "problems," and other deviating sexual preferences, such as paedophilia. A dildo needs to be present in each room, but it is unclear why.

Mentioned as well are diagnoses and treatments of children and teenagers with sexual "abnormalities," and consults for boys on sexual education and gender knowledge. The Russian Ministry of Health states that it first wants to consult the population before setting up these rooms.

Homosexuality in Russia

Homosexuality has been a taboo subject in Russia for a long time, also with prosecution. Homosexuality was decriminalized in 1917, to be re-criminalized in 1933. In 1993, homosexuality was made legal again.

Since 2013, there is a law in place that in practice means that it is a punishable offence to talk about homosexuality in the presence of a minor, or wearing external references to the LGBT community, for example the rainbow flag.

This law, which has created a sir, also applies to foreigners.
