In a recent interview with Afisha Oxxxymiron told about his life:
"I was a typical seventeen-year-old homophobe, that's all. For any hetero teenager homophobia is very natural (I'm not saying "normal") thing. You are still not quite a man and you are very much afraid of everything that can cast doubt on your masculinity. And the easiest way to prove it is to establish yourself at someone else's expense. That is, it is not an ideology, but merely a conditioned reflex. In the aesthetic sense, nothing much has changed - if I see two kissing dudes, then, most likely, I will automatically give them the stink eye. But in terms of attitudes towards gays in society, I, of course, underwent a certain evolution. First I went to Oxford, where I first saw live gays in general, and saw that it was not Satan with horns and hoofs. But I really rethought the attitude after returning to Russia. Because here homophobia, it's not just "I do not like it" - but "deprive rights, lock up houses, stone to death." And it's natural that I do not intend to associate myself with such views, it's clinical idiocy and mass hysteria, which is used to earn political points. Very brutal homophobes, who can not talk about anything else, in an ideal world should have their clubs, so that they go there, discussing all this, without interfering with normal people. I do not like dumb homophobia".
