Russian Federation: Mother loses custody over kids for son's long hair: Lyubov Litsegevich and her 7 children
Local authorities, in the Bogradskiy District, Russia, have removed seven children from their adoptive mother after she allowed one of her four year-old sons’ hair to grow long. The authorities interpreted this as her fostering the “wrong” gender identity in him, an absurd accusation arising in the context of state-sponsored homophobia, transphobia and gender stereotyping in Russia.
