Germany Debuts Tongue-In-Cheek Rainbow Uniforms At Sochi Opening Ceremonies


A lot has been made of the German Olympic team’s choice of garb going into the 2014 Winter Olympics, namely, the perceived protest to Russia’s stringent anti-gay laws. Germany, of course, has denied these rumors — though everyone seems to not care, because they’re being hailed as a statement of tolerance (or a middle finger to the policies of Vladimir Putin). No matter how you slice it, they’re a bold choice of clothing.

And the historical irony couldn’t be more obvious: 73 years ago, Germany invaded Russia as the harbingers of evil. Today they arrive in a courageous showing of acceptance. Weird how things sometimes work out like that…

    No matter whatsoever designer Mr. Bogner told it has been intended to be a statement or not. As of today, IT CLEARLY IS ONE!

    21st century Germany is tolerant, friendly and colourful. Especially in my hometown Berlin, gay people are always respected and welcomed. Even our mayor is gay, governing since ar least ten years. I’m straight and at the same time proud, that this rainbow-dressed team is sending a message of tolerance and pluralty all over the world at the opening ceremony – it makes me proud and crying at same time.

  • Made in America.

    Its Gay alright. I would be ashamed if US dressed like that disrespecting the host country like that.We make our women cover up in some Countrys to respect the countries religious beliefs. whats the difference.

  • Bill Mulligan

    They’re certainly not Hugo Boss.

  • really?

    the difference is one is based of religion and beliefs, the other one is based off of hate and the denial of basic human rights.

  • Non American

    What a way to represent “made in america”, it’s no wonder countries boo americans when they are announced at the Olympics…. It’s because your country is made up of ignorant people. I was at the Ausralian Olympics and i could hear that boooo all over the streets…..can you hear me booing now?

  • Jerry Crowe

    No it isn’t fag boy.

  • Juliet Peck Moore

    EXACTLY. It still boggles me that the IOC allowed the host of the Olympics to violate the Olympic charter.

    Principle 6 of the Olympic Charter states that “Any form of
    discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race,
    religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging
    to the Olympic Movement,” and the IOC has said that this includes sexual orientation.

    I’m American and I’m ashamed that our people didn’t do this. Just months ago our government was going to bomb Syria because of what happened there. To stand by and not speak for those who cannot speak, or stand up for those who cannot stand or fight for those unable to fight is wrong and in doing so you are just as guilty as those commiting the crimes against the weaker people.

    OMG i am laughing so hard at that typical American comment. Wrong asshole people boo you because you have pissed off every country in the world..and your ignorant which your comment speaks to.You do well in the olympics because you have over 300 million people who live there do some simple math with some other countries. For example take the medals that Canada got last olympics and divide it by the amount of people they have in there country….oh wait you probably need to know where that country is and i am guessing you have no clue as to the population. Do the math with every country….you guys would not be looking so good.

    for the record i know not all americans are idiots.

  • Crazy American

    Not every American is an ignorant douche lord. I think our nation is full of idiots too, but I can’t do anything to change their backward thinking.

    I think what the Germans did was awesome. They’ve got the nuts to make that statement in front of the world! I hope they bring home Gold in every event.

    At least the USA team brought some dele-gay-tes to the party.

    Maria, think what you think. If you want to call me ignorant because of my rant about Germany’s outfit that’s your right..I seldom use curse words. However, the way I see Germany came out into that world stage with that outfit screams a big FU to Russia for having anti-gay laws. That kind of attitude is what I think rude. Therefore I wanted to be rude towards their low action.

    Now I disagree with many things in Russia and hate it for some reasons, but I support its stance on sodomites & co. No cute Olympics or world even for that matter makes me consider my views towards the sickness cutely labeled as lgbt. That’s why I didn’t like Germany’s silly outfit.

    Jerry, while I actually agree with your stance on this, your backing that “you’re German” is rather weak. Do you consider yourself American or German? My entire family came from Germany, so I guess that makes me 100% pure German blood. But does that make me a German? No. I’m an American citizen. Thus I have no right to speak “as a German”.

  • Knackwurst

    German mother and english father?
    Your mother should have drowned you right after birth then, or she isn’t truly german!

    It is hypothetical. I am German by blood on both sides for generations.

  • Jerry Crowe

    Selina, America is the only country with this conflict because of it is a country based on immigration. I am German by blood and an American citizen. I am sure you have read articles about a German being arrested for terrorism only to find out the person was not German at all, but an Arab with German citizenship. Having German citizenship does not make an Arab or Turk a German anymore than having Japanese citizenship makes an Irish man Japanese. I am an American, but I also know where I came from and my heritage.

  • PeedroPaula

    Freedom of speech is one thing, but calling someone a “fag” is no more acceptable than calling someone a “retard” or a “nigger.” You made a personal attack against the OP which is a violation of most Terms of Service.

  • Jerry Crowe

    You should really stop projecting your own familial issues onto other people that you do not know. What you said it a common tactic used by homosexuals to re-direct the debate. You probably see gays under every rock and crevice. I’m sure it makes you feel better about yourself, but it doesn’t change the fact that it is deviant behavior.

  • Jerry Crowe

    So calling a spade a spade is not acceptable to you. Gays call each other fags all the time. Blacks call each other niggers all the time. In the immortal words of Jeff Spicoli,’those guys are fags”. Go find that quote. You, like many, believe you have a freedom to not be offended. How is calling someone a fag a personal attack if the person is a fag?

  • Jerry Crowe

    My position is that homosexuality is a deviant behavior. Perhaps you should look up the word deviant before making allegations about the origin of my position.

  • Jerry Crowe

    That is your perception and opinion. You are entitled to both, which does not mean they are correct.

  • Jerry Crowe

    Web definition? Do you not own any books? I urge you to research the word phobia which is derived from the Greek word Phobos. Misuse of a word or term does not change the definition.

    If this was an attempt to interject themselves into Russian politics, they need to butt out. Putin is taking a principled stance against sodomite propaganda.

    You are 100% correct. The Greek root for “hate” is “mis” as in misogynistic. If you don’t like homosexuals, the term is missodomite which is never seen. But “anti” or “against” is just as good . . . anti-sodomite . . . anti-homosexual . . . etc. The “phobia” is a deliberate insult meant to accuse one of fearing homosexuality because he must secretly be one himself. It’s just another example of how hypocritical and dishonest those people are.

    I saw the meaning you referenced . . . “irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against.” Actually, that has NOTHING to do with the word as structured. JERRY CROWE is absolutely correct.

    The term homophobia is an invented term coined by a homosexual jewish psychologist named George Weinberg who was instrumental in removing homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses (without any study to back it up). He deliberately invented the term to insult anyone opposed to homosexuals.

    I don’t hate gays except for some gays who openly show their sickness in public. As for the majority of sodomites, they are just ordinary human beings to me like most of people only affected by this sickness. You see, if you tell yourself you are a maniac enough times and surroundings support that soon you will notice that you have become a maniac.

    I am a Muslim and don’t wish evil to anybody. I have a father and mother and if in my childhood we could grow up without worryings now I get worried about my little cousins. They can get exposed to this sickness. Homosexuality is sickness but if you say it like it is, for some reason you are anti-human rights “bigot”.

    hahaha you are not serious, are you? Really. The man argues shouting his lungs out for an hour or so against fags and you come here calling he is a closet fag himself. As they say, you must be smoking some good stuff!

    After seeing a third guy insulting the other party over homosexuality i guess it is safe to assume that pro-homosexuality guys don’t like civil way of debating.

    I have no problem with opinions that differ from mine, unless they are bigoted. Like yours.

    Homosexuality is sickness but if you say it like it is, for some reason you are anti-human rights “bigot”. Yes, for some reason logical people would think that, much like if you say muslims are terrorists they’d think you’re a bigot too.

    All modern languages evolve by use, that’s why it’s also called “living language”. English is not a dead classical language yet. “Homophobia” is a word understood and spoken in the english speaking parts of the world, and is therefore part of the English language. Your refusing to accept that it as an english word doesn’t make it not so, it just means you’re a tool.

    Oh, like xenophobia is a deliberate insult meant to accuse one of fearing a foreigner because he must secretly be one himself; so the proper term being anti-nigger or anti-chinks, etc…so as not to insult the racists who are not afraid that they may have an ounce of colored in them? Makes sense.

    “We’re disgusted at the hypocrisy of a group that engages in risky and promiscuous sex then has the gall to DEMAND “we” find a cure for HIV/AIDS.” That just shows your ignorance. You are probably from the boondocks (yes, that word, originally from the Filipino language, is now part of the english language too). Not all LGBTQs engage in risky and promiscuous sex; a lot are in committed same-sex relationships much like many heterosexual couples. Of course there are many who engage in risky and promiscuous sex, much like their heterosexual counterparts. Strangely, it is people like you who denounce the “gay’s risky and promiscuous sex” who are also likely to oppose same-sex marriage, which would help bind the LGBTQs in committed relationships (c’mon, tell me you don’t oppose same-sex marriage). So it’s not about LGBTQs at all (whether they have promiscuous sex or not), and all about your own prejudice (likely as a result of having been raised in ignorance). …and BTW, HIV is not a gay issue or phenomena, too bad you’re too ignorant to know that either because your ignorance puts you in higher risk of contracting it.

    I’m not “pro-homosexuality,” I’m anti-discrimination. And how, pray tell, is Mr. Crowe engaging in a civil debate by calling the OP “fag boy”?

    oh yeah, and btw, noone cares how many medals the candians get in the non-sports, like curling, that the winter olympics are famous for. In fact by your metric the sloths from the peoples republic of canuckistan should be embarrassed by how badly the Finns kick Canuckistani butt.

    Well… Let’s start. I wish stand a hour speaking about the origin of the words, but English isn’t my mother language and translate my examples isn’t something easy, so I’ll try to another way: You know than when someone call other person of “homophobic” isn’t saying than this guy has fear of homosexuals, right? You certainly have enough sense to know what it should mean, even if “phobic” come from “Phobos” than mean “fear” and everything more, just to start this discussion you need to know it. So now: For what we use the language? To transmit information, no? Nobody, I hope, listen “homophobic” and think in someone with fear of homosexuals, this word is able to pass it’s information even being “incorrect”. Try to search about other words than don’t mean what they should mean, I’ve sure than you’ll find a lot of examples (and if not you can ask me, I don’t spend a lot of time searching for them but stil remember one or two) and, with luck, something explaining better why it occurs. Whatever, discuss the choise of words when it don’t interfer in the interpretation do nothing except deviate the debate from its focus.

    Now than I said it, let me talk abou other point. One argument anti-homosexual used here was “most of us are disgusted by male effeminacy and angered over how homosexuals attack our religion and moral values”. Okay, now we have two ways to follow (or at least is that than I see, if you see more please tell me): We can assume than you have freedom to say than dislike it and show your dissatisfaction to everyone, because we have freedom of speech and don’t let you do it would be oppression. Yes, this’ nothing except the truth, but to have equality this goes for both sides: The homosexuals can’t be oppressed because it’ll be remove their freedom of speech. But we can assume than with “attack our religion and moral values” you was not just expressing your opinion, but insinuating than they don’t have the right to do this. So let’s see… Did you studied “moral and ethics” in your philosophy classes (I don’t know if it’s the name in USA, but… Well, I think than you can understand me)? No, it isn’t a rhetoric question, this is very important. Supposing than no, please read something about it, it’s 2:00 A.M. here and I’m so tired to explain this. Supposing than yes, you should know than “moral” comes from the mores of certain population, so it’s relative, something cultural. Culture changes from one place to another, it’s not fixed, the same to religion. Let’s use equality as our principle: If you agree than one culture and one religion are enough to restrict someone’s act, so you need to agree than if your acts don’t go according the religion and culture of other group you need to stop them, no matter if it will bring you trouble. Cause is it than you are suggesting. Now, if you say “in this case is different” I’ll say than you’re working with “two weights and two measures” and well… I don’t know nothing about the american constitution, but there in my country we have a law than say “all people are equal before the law” and I just can’t keep a logical argumentation without considering this like a absolute truth, sorry.

    I wish I have time to controvert other arguments, but I haven’t time even to correct the flaws of what I’ve already did (this have more holes than a swiss cheese, if some good soul can mend it I’ll be very grateful). My english isn’t good, so sorry for any mistake.

    (I’ve not a account in this site and probably will not follow this page’s updates, so if someone want to keep talking about it with me just seek “Isabela Alguma Coisa” in the Facebook, I really love see other viewpoints and I’ll be glad to keep a healthy discussion. HEALTHY discussion, without inveighing anyone, as I tried to do here.)

    You’re a liar. AIDS in the Western world continues to be a disease with over 90% of it’s victims being homosexual males and intravenous drug users.

    The so called “heterosexual AIDS” in Africa is a bullshit scam for money. There are no serious or reliable tests for HIV used in Africa: Much too expensive.

    And the “infection” criteria is preposterous. If I have tuberculosis, and I test HIV negative, I have tuberculosis. If I have tuberculosis and test positive I have AIDS. Pure BS.

  • Schlukitz

    Um…first off…before calling people liars, perhaps you would have a bit more cred if you provided some empirical proof of your disingenuous postulations. Just throwing your anti-homosexual animus out there as gospel doesn’t cut it.

    Secondly, rejecting published statistics about AIDS in Africa is as stupid as Creationist wingnuts rejecting evolution

    And, FYI, intravenous drug use is not limited to homosexuals or just males alone. Lumping them into your “90%” homosexual victim figure is as disingenuous as stating that all male cancer victims are homosexual.
