Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.- See more at: http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/russian-gay-couple-marries-most-fierce-way-possible-through-loophole210814#sthash.kpKalSrr.dpuf

cosenangel replied to your post “My brother keeps saying that racism against white people is a thing…”
I like your brother, I do. but every now and then I want to hit him with a shovel.
That’s exactly how I feel. I love him very much, but I wish he could realize that just because something doesn’t bother him, a straight white male, doesn’t mean it’s not a problem for others. Like, you know, sexism and racism.
My brother keeps saying that racism against white people is a thing and that him being called “svenne” (a somewhat dirty word for Swede) is just as racist as white people calling people of color racist names.
I try to tell him that no, it’s not the same because we’ve never been oppressed, but he says that “well in today’s society in Sweden, immigrants aren’t oppressed either”. HOW CAN A PERSON BE SO BLIND?
But then again, he’s also an anti-feminist who says the wage gap is a myth. I don’t know why I’m even surprised when he says shit like this.

Cats are expert sleepers. They certainly take a lot of time to practice. The average domestic cat spends around 16 hours each day sleeping. Wild cats sleep even more, between 16 to 20 hours a day. BuzzFeed assembled an awesome collection of photos of cats sleeping in an impressive array of awkward positions. These are our favourites.
Head over to BuzzFeed for individual photo source credits and to see the rest of the collection of snoozing kitties.
