Razumilov wrote in his complaint to the company:
“I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it? And decided to try same-sex relationships,”
“I can say after the passage of two months that I’m mired in intimacy with a member of my own sex and can’t get out, I have a steady boyfriend and I don’t know how to explain it to my parents. After receiving the aforementioned message, my life has changed for the worse and will never be normal again.”
