United Russia MP indignant at transvestite’s victory in Eurovision, urges to protect traditional family

Moscow, May 13, Interfax – First deputy head of the State Duma Committee for Family, Women and Children Olga Batalina (United Russia faction) believes Russia should struggle against new European moral guidelines, which are manifested by Austrian transvestite Conchita Wurst’s victory in Eurovision.

"Propaganda of non-traditional culture, including gay-culture, is carried out aggressively, energetically, and it is successful as many countries that were quite conservative and careful about their traditions, gave highest points to bearded Conchita Wurst, thus making her their moral guide and example for young people to follow. It is a very serious signal how to gain success in modern Europe," the United Russia press service quotes Batalina as saying.

According to her, it is not enough to have talent and good voice to win Eurovision, "but you need to refuse your nature, your identity, your traditions."

"Austria had not won Eurovision since 1966, though participated in it. And ironically it managed to become the first when the country was represented by the bearded transvestite who sang not better and not worse than others. Washing out differences between sexes, traditional family values is a serious destructive blow for every society, for its moral foundations, leading to a demographic catastrophe," Batalina said.

She believes the problem should not be underestimated.

"We are absolutely right when we protect traditional family, its values, children’s right on mum and dad in Russia. Majority of our citizens supports it today and we shouldn’t weaken our efforts in this field," the MP believes.
