If the Russian people think Pedophiles and Gay people are the same....well, lots of work to be done there. Perhaps the law is also anti-science? OR anti-art? Back to the Games. I hope gay athletes, coaches, judges, officials are chosen to go to the Olympics, and aren't kept home in their native countries due to fear. I hope all that go will be safe, and be welcome. I hope the gay athletes will be treated fairly in their competition- not disqualified (in timed events) or scored low because they are gay. (in subjective events) I hope for non violence. However, if a large number of athletes choose to show solidarity with their team mates by wearing rainbow scarves or hats in the Closing Ceremony- I hope that that could occur peacefully.
