On September 26, Barilla CEO Guido Barilla said that he "would never feature a homosexual family in any of his company's advertisements." Rival pasta company Bertolli was quick to dump tolerance sauce all over Barilla's big bowl of bigotoni that it served up on Thursday. In other news, I am so sorry for that metaphor.
Aяe you hevink pяoblem, Vladdy? On Monday April 8th, Vladimir Putin paid a diplomatic visit to the Netherlands. His visit comes on the eve of Russia enacting a new law which will give out hefty 12,000 Euro fines to anyone who displays "homosexual propaganda" in public spaces. The Dutch, being the socially progressive folk they are, were not happy with this development. Despite their objections, citizens of Amsterdam did their level best to make the bear-wrestling Russian overlord feel right at home, cordoning off whole neighborhoods of the city from tolerance and acceptance. Police also made sure that human rights stayed at least three blocks away from Putin at all times.
