Russian LGBT network "responded to the request of the head of the Ministry of justice of the Russian Federation Alexander Konovalov in Geneva:" Please help us to do this, to find them ..."According to human rights activists, the authorities consistently ignore what has long been known from their investigations.
"Since April 2017, the Russian LGBT network has been helping people affected by mass persecution in Chechnya organized by the authorities... All of the region were evacuated 119 people injured in this campaign. Despite this, the Russian authorities continue to deny not only the fact of the crime, which "...The LGBT network considers it a crime against humanity, but also the fact of the presence of the LGBT community in Chechnya..."- the statement of human rights activists says.

A hundred years ago, the idea of what it meant to be heterosexual was markedly different from today.
In the Dorland medical dictionary of 1901, heterosexuality was defined as "an abnormal or perverted attraction to the opposite sex." Two decades later, in 1923, Merriam-Webster's dictionary narrowed the meaning slightly - "painful sexual passion for one person of the opposite sex".

It was only in 1934 that heterosexuality was defined, which we are familiar with today - "a manifestation of sexual desire to face the opposite sex; normal sexuality."
Every time I talk about it, people don't believe me. This is impossible! Indeed, it seems that the concept of heterosexuality has always existed in our culture.

A few years ago, a video appeared on the network, the author of which asked passers-by whether, in their opinion, homosexuality is an innate feature. The answers were different, but many noted that it is a mixture of natural factors and education.After that, the crucial question for the experiment sounded: "When did you decide to become heterosexual?" Feeling caught in the bias, people quickly agreed with the reporter's point of view: homosexual, as well as heterosexual, are born.

The authors and participants of the experiment, it seems, assumed that any sexuality is a certain indisputable fact that does not require any explanation.
Many scientific and popular works have been written about homosexual identity as a social construct. And no one will be surprised by the statement that the idea of "homosexuality" entered the culture at a certain moment in the history of mankind. But for some reason, we know very little about the fact that the concept of heterosexuality appeared in this way.

In 2015, a group of psychologists from the University of Toronto decided to find out. In a study called "Frequency of sex determines well - being, but more doesn't always mean better" Amy Mews, Ulrich Shimmak and Emily Impett have shown that there is actually a perfectly accurate rhythm of sex that (for an average couple) optimally contributes to the well-being of partners-once a week.

The researchers found that the difference in the well-being of a cohabiting couple who have sex once a week and those who have sex less than once a month exceeded the difference in the well-being of those who earn $75,000 a year and those who receive $25,000. In other words, increasing the frequency of sex four times improves mood in about the same way as getting an extra $50,000 a year.
