For millennia, Indians have been buggering each other, figuratively.
But now they can do it, literally.
And legally too (this means homosexuality is no longer ground for being carted off to jail where you become the lover-boy for stronger male prisoners).
The New York Times has just put out a story that an Indian court has struck down Section 377 (dealing with the gay sex ban) as unconstitutional.
Here’s the excerpt from the NYT story:
In a landmark ruling Thursday that could usher in an era of greater freedom for gay men and lesbians in India, New Delhi’s highest court decriminalized homosexuality.
“Discrimination is antithesis of equality,” the judges of the Delhi High Court wrote in a 105-page decision that is the first in India to directly guarantee rights for gay people. “It is the recognition of equality which will foster dignity of every individual,” the decision said.
Homosexuality has been illegal in India since 1861, when British rulers codified a law prohibiting “carnal intercourse against the order of nature.”
We’ve never understood this hullabaloo about homosexuality between consenting adults.
Why should it be anyone’s business in which hole his neighbor drills his nail or whether a child has two mommies?
Our philosophy in life is Screw and Let Screw, a modification of the old Live and Let Live.
Today, we can all proudly say – Mera Bharat Mahaan.
