t.A.T.u. — That’s how you spell homophobia in Russian

Remember when these two were pretending to be this close? Remember when these two were pretending to be this close?
I know we’ve all been waiting for the girls from t.A.T.u., the faux-lesbian one-hit wonder Russian duo, to chime in on the subject of homosexuality considering the increasingly hostile environment toward gays and lesbians in Russia. Well, I’ve got some bad news. Singer Julia Volkova would not be too thrilled if she ended up with a gay son.

“Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man,” she said during an appearance on a Ukrainian talk show. “God created man for procreation, it is the nature. … I won’t accept a gay son.”

But don’t worry, guys. Some of her best friends are gay and she’s totally down with them, so long as they’re not related to her.

“I’m not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a f—,” Volkova adds. “I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay a little better than the rest.”

So, yeah, all the things she said … are terrible! Oddly enough, she didn’t say how she’d feel about having a daughter who pretended to be gay to boost album sales.
