Russia Made A "Straight Flag" Because Russia

Russia is known for it's stance on same-sex marriage, and even same-sex relationships, they don't approve.

In their latest move to try and establish that any sort of same-sex relationship will not be tolerated, the country unveiled a flag that they hope will encourage their promotion of traditional values.

The 'flag for straights' features two adults, one male and one female, along with three children. The flag was unveiled in Moscow on Wednesday at a rally for the annual Day of Family, Love and Fidelity holiday.



The holiday was established back in 2008 by then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and as the New York Times put it, to help "Russia's promotion of procreation, urging couples not only to have children but also to provide those children with two-parent, stable family lives."

Although homosexuality is not illegal in Russia, in 2013 they made it illegal to talk about it in front of minors. According to Mashable, a survey the Levada Center took back in May found 37% of Russians believe that homosexuality is a disease that needs to be cured.



The Moscow Times states that the Russian-language hashtag on the flag translates to "A Real Family" and was being promoted by the deputy head of the Moscow branch of the party, Alexey Lisovenko.

Naturally, many people had opposing feelings about Russia's flag and decided to weigh in on the topic photoshopping the flag.





Even though Russia doesn't support same-sex marriage, America does. Check out pics below from the historic day when marriage equality was finally legalized in the United States.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay couples nationwide have the right to marry in a 5-4 decision. How incredible it is to be here as they announced it!
It is now clear that the challenged laws burden the liberty of same-sex couples, and it must be further acknowledged that they abridge central precepts of equality . . . Especially against a long history of disapproval of their relationships, this denial to same-sex couples of the right to marry works a grave and continuing harm. #fbf #equality #lovemustwin #freedomtomarry
People are FREAKING OUT at the Stonewall Inn! Tears, hugs, laughter. http://t.co/bC1RUfEDzk
