My friend: "You mean Pussy Riot."
Her mom: "Oh right! Your friend's blog was in my head." (Hi, Annette.)
But seriously, how fucking outrageous is it that three women have been in jail since March, and now face two years in prison, for protesting the "president" (read: dictator who rigs elections) in an empty church. The head of the church and many of its clerics support the sentence, by the way. Shouldn't this same church be glad they're able to openly practice their religion (e.g. free speech), which was similarly outlawed for several decades? Not to mention the sexism of the case: the presiding (female) judge, Marina Syrova, who handed down the sentence "accused" them of "practicing feminism."
Vladimir Putin, Marina Syrova, and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, you can suck it. You can't hold down democracy forever.
(Blogger, you can suck it also. This formatting is totally fucked up.)
