Rudkovskaya is ready to forgive her son unconventional orientation - she was in a TV show. Interesting questions from Sobchak. She is provocative many times
Resigned Rudkovskaya sends away gay son
Yana Rudkovskaya told what she would do if her son, Evgeni Plushenko Sasha, grows up gay. The producer frankly answered the tricky question of Ksenia Sobchak.
"Imagine a situation if the Gnom Gnomych, when he grows up, decides that he is gay. Can you accept it?" - said Sobchak, referring to the younger son of Rudkovskaya - Sasha.
"When the Gnom Gnomych, Sasha, puts on her mother's shoes at five or four years old, or at three, and chap in these shoes and in her skirt - it's all nice, you laugh and so on, and really it does not cause any questions. When he begins to play with dolls, be interested in women's cosmetics ... I will try to reorient him for a while, but if I realize that it is useless to do something, then I will invite him to go to another country, "Rudkovskaya reasoned.
Yana noted that she would put up with any conscious choice of Sasha. But in this case, she will do everything possible so that her heir will live in a more tolerant place. “But where can I go, but in Russia it will be very difficult for him,” said the producer.
Note that TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak arranged a hen party, to which Yana Rudkovskaya was invited. The gathered women touched upon the topic of gender-neutral education - a principle that is gaining popularity all over the world.
The kid is what, 6 years old? You can't judge a child's sexual orientation at 6. Kids go through so many phases at that age. Heck, when I was 6 I thought I was a fairy.
Granted, there are some children who know their sexual orientation from a very young age, but unless they have explicitly stated it, it's not right to assume because of their behavior. Also, it seems like a one-sided, sexist idea: boys who show any signs of femininity are automatically labeled gay, but tomboyish girls are not automatically labeled lesbians.
Also, sexual orientation is not about being "masculine" or "feminine". While the stereotype of gay men is a fluffy, feminine image (which is accurate for some), the truth is that many gay men do not fit this stereotype (Tim LeDuc, Eric Radford, Gus Kentworthy off the top of my head). I know lesbians who wear short hair and hate getting dressed up, and I know lesbians who wear long hair and have entire instagram pages dedicated to makeup. And there are many, many kinds of people in between.
I didn't know I was bisexual until I was 15 (I had my first crush on a female celebrity when I was 13 but I thought it was an innocent "girl crush"). Honestly, my family didn't know until I told them, because I didn't show stereotypical "signs" (besides wanting short hair, which I blamed on Wenjing Sui and her fabulous bob). True, there are some people who just give a "gay" vibe, and that's totally fine. But there are some straight people who have those traits - I can think of several ladies in sports and Hollywood who have that vibe but are in relationships with men, several men who are more feminine but married to women, and some gay people who don't give any indication that they're gay. It's ignorant media that spreads the stigma.
And you know what? Gay shouldn't be an offensive word. My dad used to insult men by saying "they look gay" because he thought it was a shot to their masculinity. In truth? I think most straight men would kill to look like Eric Radford or Guillaume Cizeron!
I know this is very off topic, but it just bothers me that the media is so quick to assume these kinds of things.
