Will supporters of Russian LGBT rights 'calm down'?

"Gay people are facing violence in Russia, hate crimes are on the rise, gays are being tortured, crimes are not being investigated, and victims of crimes do not go to the police because of the fear of being exposed.

When people realize that this law creates grounds for violence, they will stop supporting these laws, because no one supports violence."
