A Silent Protest or Simply Bad Taste in Clothing?


Germany's new outfits, for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, have been interpreted by many as a protest against Russian anti-gay laws. But the German Olympic Sports Confederation quickly denied that interpretation and declared the uniforms are not a protest.

Ones think they really use rainbow colors in their uniforms, as a silent but explicit protest against Russia law banning gay propaganda, but others think (me included) they are simply ugly colorful uniforms. 

In any case, welcome to controversy, more ideas?

  5. Germans are not stupid. It's a protest. And I'm proud of them for this.
