Russian Coach Claims Gay Conspiracy over Olympic Wrestling

Standard

So I recently saw this article on PinkNews.co.uk, regarding the vote by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to cut wrestling from the list of sports confirmed for the 2020 Olympic Games.  The sport will have to compete for a spot in those games alongside seven other sports.Tarik+Belmadani+Olympics+Day+10+Wrestling+NmQ4JQ5FDVLl

According to the article, the reasons behind this decisions weren’t given despite it being one of the oldest Olympic sports, however it was speculated that it was due to low television ratings.

Anyway, that’s not really the point of the article.  The main point is over the comments made by Russian coach Vladimir Urumagov, who speculated the sports demotion was due to a ‘gay conspiracy‘.  Mr Uruimagov, who coached London 2012 champion Alan Khugaev and Athens 2004 champion Khasan Baroev, called the decision “a blow to masculine origins.”

“If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world.”  He continued: “It turns out this committee [the IOC] is headed by representative of these minorities,” and clarified he meant “sexual minorities”.

“It is necessary for millions around the world who understand that this is a man’s sport and who understand the need to continue the human race to go out and explain their position to the Olympic Committee,” he said. “We should prove and explain that in any other case there is no future.”

Ummmm… what?!?

Anyone else lost as to his reasoning and how the removal of wrestling equates to a gay conspiracy?  In fact, I’d think it be the opposite.. that gays would WANT wrestling in the Olympics so they can watch hot, fit men grabble in tight-fitting lycra.

Or maybe that’s just me. LOLstretch

Now I’ve heard of many things being blamed on us poofs over the years, and this one definitely ranks up there with the most silliest.

The following, according to someone somewhere, were all gay people’s fault (as noted in THIS Guardian article):

Are us gay boys and girls really that scary that they need to make up stories about us, to vilify us as if we’re all the boogy-man?

These so-called religious and political leaders are just using our community as a scapegoat, as a harbinger for a perceived ‘evil’ that isn’t there.  In fact, one US pastor has even been quoted as saying “God is systematically destroying America,” because of the gays.

Well.. I think if this ‘God’ is actually destroying the supposed ‘land of the free’, then I really don’t think it’s because of the gays.  If anything, I’d think (and yes, this is my opinion) it’s because of all the religious fanatics who are trying to keep the US in the stone ages and from progressing in Human Rights .. and it’s telling them to catch up with the rest of the free world.

Or maybe, just maybe, all these things happened because they happened, because of our society’s misuse of the planet (weather disasters) or because some people are just bad inside (paedophiles, shootings, etc).  Or maybe sometimes shit just happens, shocking as it may be.

It’s not because us gays just want to live our lives the same as everyone else, with the same rights and freedoms.

We are all equal.  Get over it.

  1. I would say the only reason why the sport had low (and not zero) ratings is because of the gay men who watch it. I have to admit I’m really saddened by the fact that it may be cancelled.

    I am sorry that the IOC is dropping wrestling from the Olympic schedule. As to the Russian claims, I am amazed over the vividness of the homophobe imagination.

  3. Yeah, gay guys are so much more into golfers in lime green pants and buttoned poly polo shirts. Wrestling… along with swimming and gymnastics were one of the main reasons I watched the Olympics.
