Nobody says that in Russia accepting your children for who they are is a crime or a wrongdoing. There are even celebrities whose kids are LGBTQ, and nobody is making a problem out of it.

Who marginalizes them and how? There isn’t a single legislature norm left that would somehow penalize or punish someone for being an LGBT person. Yes, Russia doesn’t have any craze about “fighting for rights” that is killing the West now, and that’s a great thing. An important thing that Russians are against is the unfair advantage our minorities often get in the West as part of this “fighting”, and often this is what this “fighting” is aimed for.
That doesn’t mean that the notion of women’s and other rights is entirely absent. My Grandma and my Grandpa’s sister, born in mid-1920s, were engineers (a chemical and in high-precision mechanics respectively), while in Quebec, Canada, in 1950-60s, they were fighting for women’s rights and were (and some still are) extremely proud of that. My French professor at University in Canada, a Quebecois, with big pride, was lecturing us on their fight for women’s rights... Until she asked what our grandparents were doing and I told just that. And grandparents themselves have never felt any sorts of discrimination, neither at universities nor at workplaces. And when looking at the Western “fight for rights” they were just wondering “what do these people want?” and “why can’t they just find something to do with their lives - e.g. go to school, get a job”. And that was the generation born in 1920s and entering adulthood in 1940s - right in the middle “bloody tyrant Stalin” time.

Yes, and this is the situation they are working on correcting.

You can also find Bigfoot and Area 51 aliens “evidence” if you search hard enough. But it will all be of the same quality as “Russians in Ukraine”.
