    my question is if you are gay do you have to act like a woman for people to take you seriously?🤔

    Simple, why are you supporting an organization that allows the 10 countries to participate, you yourself participated, without protesting, without taking a stand, during any event, standing beside those from the very country you say should not be allowed to be there, you did nothing. You are 100% right, it is easy to talk about it, as you do, yet your very actions of participation right alongside the 10 countries speak how hollow your words mean. It’s all good and dandy after the fact, but you are not willing to take a stand while you were there, you could had made a dramatic point by refusing at the starting line to move, boycotting the event unless the other participants of the 10 countries were removed from that current event, yet you did not, again your words are hollow if you yourself support the organization by participating.

    So basically the west is forcing other countries to behave like they do. Very immoral and no of their business

    Being on the Olympics brings no economic value to a country

    The olympics are (supposed to be) about athleticism and finding the best athletes in there respected sport. Not a podium for political activism.

    If being gay comes with " death penalty " then I think Is fair.

    I agree things should change and homophobia is just plain unacceptable. But to be fair, if the olympic games became politicised you would also have to ban countries that perpetuate modern slavery, countries that invade and control others, countries that are corrupt etc… we might be light on teams by the end of the selection process !

    LGBT should join the paralympic games .. or just respect the other countries rules ,,, or dont participate at all if they're hosting any olympic game ... You talk about basic human right , but LGBT not even "human things" ....

    Interested fellows can't get help from Google translator for what I am going to say in local tongue cause the outcome will be totally different from actual wording. Then why to use Pushto? Coz it's the best way to Express my feelings for this guy: تہ آزاد یی کونہ ورکوہ، د نورو قومونو د روایات، اقدار، نظریات سرہ ستا سویمہ دہ کونی انسانہ۔

    So they can ban countries for apartheid and drug taking but can't ban them for murdering people? We need to start a campaign now to ostacise these countries. Who's with me? Name and shame them NOW.!!!!!

    Maybe the athletes should have more say in the games THEY are attending 🤣 but, yeah. You people all have very important opinions on what the Olimpics should be about.

    Olympics is an athletic org. (,it has nothing to do with anti lgbt countries.)not an LGBT org to impose a disqualification to the anti lgbt countries. You can make your own LGBT OYMPICS and impose all the lgbt laws for your own lgbt gains.

    He wants to ban countries from the Olympics for sticking to their morals and not giving in to the queers.
