Regarding Russia and Putin's hateful anti-gay policies and the Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia:
I think I've come up with the perfect form of non-violent protest that will capture the world's imagination. It not only gets out the message but protects the people (the athletes) delivering it.
"We, the enlightened and civilized people of the world, call on the athletes of the world to do "Sochi Sashay" in solidarity with our gay brothers and sisters at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Laugh, dance, sing do all that you normally would do but sashay your asses off. Let Putin try to throw you out or harass you for that.
Pass this on to all your friends and contacts. Let's make this thing go viral - "Sashay for Tolerance" Let the movement begin today.... or not... 'sigh.'
