I did read your first edit. I didn't say they didn't want to marry another race, because they didn't find them attractive. Many societies feel that marrying another race or culture, is a violation or dismissal of one's heritage. For example, many middle eastern Muslims living in America feel that in order to be a good person morally and culturally, they must marry another Muslim. I imagine that you do not see a problem with this. And yet, if a white person said that in order to be a good person morally and culturally, they must only marry another person of European ancestry, I am assuming you would call them "racist."
My point is, we find that sort of ideology ridiculous - and feel they have a bias. But that is their way of life, and we need to recognize, that ultimately we also hold a bias in finding that wrong. Every opinion is a bias.
The key here, and what people seem to have tried to say earlier, is this:
It's ok to make that choice within your family etc. But when the COUNTRY makes a law saying, you may marry whomever you wish, but if a person of white descent marries someone of different skin color, and is seen outside their home together, both parties may be fined and/or face prison time.
The difference is personal versus law.
I may dislike you marrying someone because you feel it will preserve your race or some such. However, you have the right to make that choice. But when you then make a law saying I must abide by it because YOU believe in it, that is where the problem lies.
But moreso, fine, this country may pass such a law, but then don't host something as big as the Olympic games with this threat hanging over potential visitors without clearly defining what actions will or won't be considered breaking said law.
The idea is that at this point, we still haven't clearly defined what will and will not lead to fines or arrests. The Russian government has not supplied a clear and concise explanation of what behaviors are defined within the law as unacceptable.
Yes, the athletes should be safe. I'm really not concerned about their safety at this point unless they specifically go looking for ways to push the law. The spectators however are a different story.
I don't really have an opinion on moving or not moving the Olympics because there isn't enough time for that to be a legitimate option, but I do think that the pressure is on Russia to define it's law as it will apply to those spectators, so that any visitors can go in knowing exactly what is or isn't allowed, thus giving lgbt attendees sufficient notice to NOT go if they feel unsafe.
I don't feel this is right, but I'd rather them have sufficient warning and choose not to attend rather than attend and end up in jail or beaten to death simply for lack of knowledge of what fell under the law.
