A Russian MP Thinks That Peppa Pig Is Turning Kids Gay

Russian MP Alexander Khinshtein has insisted that LGBTQ+ media, like Peppa Pig, are a “tool of war”

In Moscow, Russian MP Alexander Khinshtein has declared war on Call Me by Your Name, South Park and Peppa Pig. BBC Monitoring’s Francis Scarr posted a clip on Twitter of a speech recently made by Khinshtein, in which he appears to be showing a powerpoint presentation.

“LGBT is nowadays a tool of hybrid war, and in that hybrid war, we must protect our traditional values,” said the MP. “We must protect our society and our children. Let me very quickly demonstrate what kind of propaganda is already being waged against our society.”

In the clip Khinshtein flicks through screenshots of different movies and TV shows, including the film Call Me by Your Name and TV’s South Park, before showing an image of Peppa Pig, which he described as “a seemingly very well-known cartoon”.

“In one episode,” he told the audience, “a polar bear is drawing a portrait of her family and says: ‘I live with my mummy and my other mummy.’”

The declaration of war on Peppa Pig comes as Russian lawmakers indicate they will expand the country’s so-called “gay propaganda” law, which criminalises the discussion of LGBTQ+ issues in media that made be seen by minors, to cover adults.
