The Russians do not like homosexuals, they actually have laws banning certain homosexual activities. The left love their homosexuals, after all many of the left people identify with the homosexuals, so this could be a reason of why the left is afraid of Trump becoming pals with Putin.
The left actually doesn't give a ratzazz about homosexuals or trannies or women or any other of the 'diverse' bunch of tribes. They're simply used as pawns in the culture war.
