Same-sex marriage in Russia. Why in Russia do not give permission for same-sex marriage?
There are more and more discussions, during which they actively argue about how sensible it will be to legalize same-sex marriages in Russia. The law is categorically against it at the moment, as are the deputies in parliament. As proof of this, a fine of 100,000 rubles is for someone who promotes homosexuality in the territory of the Russian Federation.
In turn, activists are dissatisfied with this state of affairs and are trying to shout to the authorities in the hope that in the future such a relationship will nevertheless be legalized. It is difficult to say whether gay marriage is recognized in Russia or not, but more importantly, is it worth it at all ...
The main arguments of the activists
Every year disputes regarding this issue are getting hotter. The reason for this is the dramatic changes in many EU countries, thanks to which sexual minorities obtained the desired freedom and recognition. And now, inspired by their victory, they are trying to legalize same-sex marriage in Russia.
In their favor, they cite the following arguments:
- Love. You can often hear that such bans do not allow people to reveal their true feelings. Because of this, many live their lives in torment and fear, which promises great psychological disorders.
- Historical norms. Activists have another trump card up their sleeve in the historical evidence that in many countries such relationships were the usual norm. Known homosexuals include Cleopatra, Alexander the Great and many others.
- The need for legitimacy. Without the legalization of marriage is not possible to claim the legal rights of the spouses. Thus, in case of a break in same-sex relationships, it is impossible to sue alimony, jointly acquired property, as well as housing.
In addition, activists give other arguments and examples, but they are not so significant and can not affect public opinion.
What does tolerance lead to?
We should start with the fact that same-sex marriages are allowed in Russia, only with one exception. This can be done by citizens of the UK who live in the territory of the Russian Federation or are visiting here.The ceremony can be held at the consulate of this country and nowhere else.
By the way, it is the United Kingdom, famous for its tolerance for non-traditional relations, now suffers from regular gay parades and rallies. The fact is that sexual minorities do not have enough permission for a legal union, they need a lot more - universal recognition. They want to destroy the customary concept of marriage, to distort it in their own way, creating a completely new society.
And the similar picture became habitual for those countries where recognized communication between homosexuals is legal. You can find confirmation in the news, TV shows and movies.
Moral norms on the guard of Russia
Same-sex marriage in Russia is not only prohibited by law, but also considered shameful from the point of view of morality. After all, if in Europe such behavior can be traced for many centuries, then in Russia they could have been cut off for it.
Due to such moral principles, modern society in Russia, as well as in most CIS countries, is against homosexuality. Some express it openly, others keep neutrality, but the truth is that they definitely do not want to repeat the practice of Britain.
Another limiting factor is the Orthodox Church. It is no secret that the Russian people are very religious in nature, and homosexuality is fundamentally contrary to the principles of the Orthodox faith.
Awareness of the consequences greatly affects whether to allow same-sex marriage in the Russian Federation or not. After all, it is impossible to make such a decision recklessly, especially considering the bitter experience of other countries. Many politicians, as well as independent experts, thoroughly examined this issue and came to the following conclusions:
- First, the legalization of same-sex marriage will lead to the fact that the promotion of homosexuality will increase greatly.
- Secondly, it is necessary to revise all moral principles and rules of conduct. This is especially reflected in such a concept as marriage and normal relations.
- Thirdly, in the struggle for their freedom and equality, sexual minorities will require the introduction of laws that will protect them from discrimination and oppression. In practice, this will lead to their elevation over others, as well as allow influencing many aspects of moral values.
Also, if same-sex marriages in Russia are still allowed, then soon other non-traditional organizations will come out of the shadows.For example, Muslims will demand to legalize polygamy, the same feminists, in order not to yield, will want polyandry. And at such a pace, there is nothing left of the usual concept of "marriage".
The main argument against same-sex marriage
You can talk for a long time about all the pros and cons of a same-sex family, but there is one fact against which it is impossible to put forward a counter-argument - children. It so happened that to conceive a child, both a female egg and a male spermatozoon are needed. Therefore, unconventional couples are not able to continue their race. Naturally, it is possible to enlist the support of science and perform artificial insemination or pay a surrogate mother, but such couples are not able to conceive a child on their own.
Continuing the theme of children, it is impossible to miss the fact that a child brought up in such a family will have a distorted look at the order of things. For him, such relationships will be the usual norm, and not the exception to the rule. Therefore, it is likely that in the future he will want to repeat the experience of his parents and create his own same-sex family.
What awaits Russia
Let many global gay rights organizations and riot againstthat gay marriage is prohibited in Russia, they cannot yet influence the decision of the authorities, at least not in this country. The deputies themselves are not going to change their positions regarding sexual minorities, which means that new laws will not be introduced.
Moreover, society itself is not ready for this. An Orthodox person cannot calmly accept such behavior, much less look at how his children are taught a “new” way of life. This view is confirmed by social surveys, which are often conducted by state and independent organizations.
Given this, we can certainly say that gay marriage in Russia will not be legalized, at least in the near future.
