Boycott Kraft Russian Dressing!

Of course not. That's asinine. Makes about as much sense as Congress putting Freedom Fries on their lunch menu. People are upset about the situation in Russia (legitimately) but doing something irrational and unproductive won't help. It now appears that a Stoli Boycott will do more to hurt LGBT communities than make any changes in Russian public and political opinions. And for the record, I don't approve boycotting the Sochi Olympics either.

But what would have an effect is to contact NBC and our elected representatives and demand they pressure Putin's Government to protect their LGBT citizens. Or how about demanding Donald Trump pull his Miss Universe Pageant from Moscow? Sadly, that's probably too much work for many folks - much easier to switch vodkas and forget about it :(

We boycotted Coors when Joseph Coors and the Heritage Foundation went after us.

We boycotted Red Stripe when LGBT Activists Brian Williamson and Steve Harvey were mutilated and murdered in Jamaica.

WTF are we even debating Stoli & Russian Standard while LGBT youth are kidnapped, tortured, and murdered in Russia?
