The Unnatural Gender- Jeopardizing Gaiety

Perverse. Illness. Disease. Unnatural.

Such regressive negative words being used for a community so creative, talented and so gay (happy).

I wonder why. Just because they are *different*. Well I thought being different was the way to be… the way to be successful and famous. But ironically here it is unnatural.

11.12.13: our honorable Supreme Court questioned our history and the prime existence of love and relationship. Tracing back to our history, Kamasutra- the ancient Indian treatise on love talks about feelings for same sexes and the famous Khajuraho temple is a striking example of love or relation even between the same sexes, then why does the court question it today? When our country’s people exemplify the sanctity of marriage, commitment and true love, then why the gay people who are yes, human can’t express themselves?

India is a secular state that believes in equality. Really?

The section 377 was imposed by the British in the Victorian era; they grew over it and legalized gay marriages. Why are we walking back?

India aims and aspires to be a superpower. The president of the superpower Barack Obama said, “This was discrimination enshrined in law. It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser class of people. The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it. We are a people who declared that we are all created equal – and the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” Atleast for the selfish motive of becoming a superpower could influence to take back this lame law!

India constitutes myriad of cultures and religions, and has learnt to love together… Why this alienation for the LGBTs?

At the end I’ll just say when the gay are allowed to vote for the nation’s leaders, why can’t they live their lives freely?

For the respect of your votes, I plead the parliamentarians to curb these cliché.

P.s. Justice Sanghvi retires today.
Whatever happened to “Leaving with a legacy of good things.”
P.p.s Blindfolded lady justice…literally!
