SOCHI, Russia (AP) — An Italian gay-rights activist says she was detained by police in the Olympic host city after being stopped while carrying a rainbow flag saying "Gay is OK" in Russian.

Vladimir Luxuria, a former Communist lawmaker in the Italian parliament who has become a prominent transgender rights crusader, said on her website and Twitter feed that she was held for several hours Sunday before being released. It was not known if she was charged with any offense.

Her website published a photograph of her after her release. Before her arrest, she tweeted: "I'm in Sochi. Greetings in the colors of the rainbow, in Putin's face."

Sochi police would not comment.

Italy has their own ways of dealing with international misfits. Just wait until you get home, Vladimir...

I’ve been called a bigot more than once for just saying leave the children out of it. For some reason children are very important to gay activists. I more than suspect that many are either supporters of NAMBLA or NAMBLA members themselves.

Well, there’s certainly an understanding that it’s key to teach people something, especially when they are young. Considering the need for kids to be kids, this is incredibly disturbing...

Vladimir is a man's name. You would think that IT would have changed ITS name to VladimirA or something to indicate the, er, "direction" of ITS change.

There is NO "gay" or "bisexual" gene. It does NOT exist. So homosexuality and bisexuality are CHOICES, made when people are in their early to mid teens.

Yuck, what a dreadful choice.

You can always tell maleness by the Adam's apple and the hands.
NO WAY to disguise either.

At least Yahoo specified public promotion of homosexuality, it is reasonable to believe there were children in the crowd.

Deliberate provocation of the authorities and violation of the law.

This is what the Putin law is all about. She is not in Sochi for any other reason than to flaunt her (perverse as seen by Putin) sexuality in the faces of Russian people. She’s not an “activist”, she is an instigator who is trying to incite a conflict. She ought to be kicked out of the country and sent back to Italy.

Wait a minute, “VLADIMIR” is a MAN’S NAME!!

Kudos to the Russians for giving these freaks a rough time. They should have sent them to Siberia.

It’s not purely genetic, and as it turns out, genetics isn’t perfect in determining aspects about a person, either. People in cases can learn alcoholism from foster parents, and yes, identical twins develop differences over time.
