'Send A Dildo To Vladimir Putin' Facebook Group Suggests LGBTs Protest Russian President

To say that things are bleak for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Russia right now would be a gross understatement (literally and figuratively).

Recent anti-LGBT legislation and violence has prompted a global conversation about and backlash to the country and its leaders.

From protests outside the Russian consulate in New York City to gay bars around the world refusing to serve Russian vodka, activists and allies are raising their voices in hopes of bringing about change to the virulently homophobic and transphobic country.

But what if pledging to drink only beer or promising not to watch the 2014 Sochi Olympics just doesn't feel like it's quite enough?

Well, why not mail Russian President Vladimir Putin a dildo? That's what one group is asking anyone outraged by Russia's anti-lgbt policies to do.

As Queerty reports, a new Facebook group titled "Send A Dildo To Vladimir Putin" has sprung up. The page offers the president's address, 23, Ilyinka Street, Moscow, 103132, Russia, and suggests, "Help Impale The Vlad! Send your toys, new or used, to where they're needed the most!"

Because nothing says "F you!" like a used sex toy in your mailbox, right?
