Putin Becomes "Gay Friendly" Figure Skater In Protest Game

Thanks to his "anti-gay propaganda" laws, and stuff like the imprisonment of Pussy Riot members, now that the Winter Olympics are on it's the perfect time to play a game where Russian President/Dictator Vladimir Putin is a figure skater.

Made by Dutch indie developer Robin Ras, Putin's Olympic Game puts the tyrant in a pink tutu and a smirk, skating in front of rainbow flags, collecting teddy bears and trying to win the gold medal.

It might seem a stretch to see Putin like this (and it's a touch insulting to hetrosexual figure skaters, regardless of the sport's reputation), but you know, those shirtless hunting photos are, for want of a better term, already pretty gay.

You can play the game here.

    Wouldn't be surprised if this dev "goes missing". Putin could possibly sue for use of likeness. He is entitled to lead his country how he sees fit.

      Parody is a protected part of free speech in most first world countries. He can't do much legally.

    So, in protest of sexual-discrimination policies, this developer made a game that stereotypes homosexuals?
