Finally, Russian officials are tackling the real problems plaguing society: Gay emoji.
The probe initiated this week comes as the result of a complaint from Mikhail Marchenko, a senator in Russia’s upper house of parliament, who was the first official to note the potential danger in the cartoon smiley faces of boys kissing boys and girls kissing girls.
In his written appeal to The Federal Service For Supervision of Communication, Information Technology and Mass Media, which is known in Russia as Roskomnadzor, the senator from the region of Bryansk called for an investigation into whether the emojis violate Russia’s controversial 2013 law against “homosexual propaganda” among minors.
In response, Marchenko was told psychologists would be consulted to determine the propaganda levels in these evil, obviously-sodomy-lovin’ emojis.
Good to know they have their priorities in order.
Leave it to Russia politicians to make our Republicans sound intelligent.
