      Homophobic insults are not cool. If you dislike Lukashenko focus on legitimate grievances to how he governs his country or the way he maintains his power. Don’t post things that make you look like a homophobe; doing so makes you look like the bad guy and not Lukashenko.

        There is no ‘phobia’ in anything I said, nor anything about me.

        He’s a creepy old drag queen with a bad combover. Even gay people use that insult. Please go filter other people’s words and thoughts, not mine.
