I dunno. I think most flamboyant homophobes still goes to Russia. An orange turban has nothing on those guys in white and blue striped shirts.

France laughs at your idea of "flamboyant" anti-gay protesters.

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Same nation still cool with gang rape.


What 'being cool with gang rape' might look like.  You would've never heard about that case if all of these people hadn't shed international exposure on a few corrupt government officials and shamed them into doing something.

Which is weird, because before the English occupation, the Hindu population of India did not even have categories of straight and gay, and the Muslim population considered gender to be defined more by marriage and social roles than by who was having sex with whom. A step backward for India would be to remove all mention of British "straight and gay" categories and to begin building temples and government buildings covered in orgies. Homophobia has no historical precedent in India before the English occupation. Homophobia is a kind of damage that colonialism, and gloablization, do to cultures.

see Indian people aren't gay so this law will only serve to protect the Indian people from foreign perverts.

(my guess at the "rationale" behind this)

This decision has Agra-vated many around the world, and India's Gaya population looks to be out of Lucknow. If you Assam the BJ Party wins in the next election (they have the support of Manipur Indians), this will not be resolved soon as the BJP could Kerala less about gay rights. On the bright side, this law could Goa way in a few years.

/hope this wasn't too much of a Punjab

super_grass: My guess: shiatty, corrupt government uses non-problem as a wedge to distract the public from the shiatty job their doing.


Actually no:
a) it was a legal ruling, not an act of politicians
b) none of the major parties were backing the appeal that led to the ruling

My flatmate is an Indian lawyer and he said there was a veritable shiate-storm among the mostly liberal-leaning Indian legal community last night. The supreme court apparently circumvented four different substantive legal questions brought in the suit and found another way to basically ask parliament to make new legislation.

give me doughnuts: You'd think the people that gave the world the "Kama Sutra" would be down with a little man-on-man or woman-on-woman action.


Fun fact: The Kama Sutra discusses gay sex favorably.

 Dear India,

I love your food but the way your culture sucks. You've got a caste system, you treat women like property, and your movies are filled with silly dancing. Time to get your act together. Sincerely, the rest of the world
