The rock duo, t.A.T.u. became famous for the video of their single, All The Things She Said, which features a memorable same-sex (neither woman is actually a lesbian) kiss in the rain. (left) Now one of the members has revealed she is actually a raging homophobe. 

Citing an interview which has since been removed from YouTube, the pop-culture site Refinery 29 reports Yulia Volkova as saying she would never accept a gay son.

"Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength male voice, male look. Definitely no, I won’t support a gay son."

The stunned interviewer reacted, saying:

"Stop, stop. You just told me that you do not mind if your daughter was a lesbian. You were talking about freedom."

But Yulia doubled down: 

"This only applies to a daughter, not a son. I think for men, it’s a bad freedom. A man has no right to be a f**. Two girls together, not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing."

The amazing part of the interview is that Yulia insists she isn’t homophobic. She explains it’s just that she wants her son “to be a real man, not a f**.” She finished by saying:

"Being gay is still better than murderers, thieves, or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest." 

Oh, I almost forgot. Yulia also says some of her best friends are gay.

Wha…what?

Well now I’m sad. I love them.

So basically she’s saying it’s alright for women to be lesbians because it’s cute to her but two gay men in love is blasphemous so she’d condemn her son if he was gay. Alright, then…what the fuck?
