You know the saying about homophobes: the louder they are, the more likely they are to be gay themselves.

As homophobes go, there aren't many these days who are louder than Russian President Vladimir look-how-straight-I-am Putin, the signer and enthusiastic proponent of the country's repugnant new law banning so-called "gay propaganda."

Naturally, this has led to speculation about Putin's own sexual orientation... which in turn has led graphic artists to create fake Grindr profiles for him.

Below (via Gay Star News) is a satirical profile by British comic David Schenider. Two more are after the jump.
