Moscow Court Bans Gay Pride Parades for the Next 100 Years

In a sane world (which ours, alas, is not), queers would be outraged about and assembling to protest that reality and not the fiction of "Israeli apartheid."

Ah, but the decision to protest "Israeli apartheid" is sane, though wicked: protesting the decisions of the Putin government (and its less-than-independent judiciary) stands as much chance of succeeding as my trying to pick up a corner of the Taj Mahal; not to mention the fact that if said government is vexed enough it is not above resorting to . . . vigorous extra-legal means of asserting its prerogatives.

Our side, on the other hand, respects the rule of law, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, etc.; we're the nice little people who ask for things politely and don't like to make a scene.

As your fellow Canadian blogress, Kate McMillan, likes to put it, "Not showing up to riot is a failed conservative strategy."
