So I'm sure most of you are aware that Russia passed a law banning homosexual "propaganda" to minors last year. While the threat to LGBT rights is clear, the question is, do you think the Olympics should be used as a medium for human-rights messages that oppose Russia's stand on homosexuality? I'm talking about corporate advertising, news, boycotts and political gestures from your own city/country. Or do you think it's unfair to raise the concern on the backs of athletes? Should the Olympics just be about the games and athletes while leaving out the social and political concerns of the country they are hosted in? These are just some arguments I've been reading and was wondering how people here felt about it.
