Decriminalizing gay sex in India

Posted by Mrityunjay on July 15, 2009

INDIA-GAY/It’s literally a milestone in the history of India. Delhi high court has ruled on section 37 of the Indian Penal Code and decided to decriminalize homosexuality. No doubt, this ruling has brought relief and cheer to the gay community in India who are forced to hide in closet. I felt glad to see the open celebrations in big cities. At least, gays felt free enough to celebrate the judgment. However, everything is not final yet. Central government can still produce its own version of opinion in the Supreme Court and that can alter the scenario.

In the hindsight, the high court has ruled in favor of what is actually taking place in other parts of the world. Many countries have legalized gay union. Understandably, old generation and religious organizations are completely against it whereas new age youths are favoring the seemingly evolutionary phase. What’s my opinion?

Well, I am totally in favor of this. I will tell you why. Though, you can be certain of the fact that I don’t have any such inclination in my personal capacity. Girls make me happy and unlike other things in life, I am pretty certain about this fact. Gosh, I just sounded defensive! Never mind!

One of the most obvious benefits of gay marriage is control over world’s most vicious problem, i.e., overpopulation. It may sound funny but think about it. Especially in a country like India that suffers from population explosion and offering 16 percent of world’s population, this may turn out to be a boom.

I am seriously astonished at hullabaloo created by people in India citing degradation of our rich culture and tradition. Well, what are you talking about fanatics? Same-sex concept has not come out of blue in recent times. It is in practice since centuries. No need to look as far as ancient Greek civilization where homosexuality was highly respected. Try checking out our lovely Ajanta and Allora and several other places where one can clearly see the images of same sex and its widespread prevalence during ancient era.

Third reason for me is the concept of love. Love should be the most important concept in a marriage and when two consenting adults are game for it; religious fundamentalists don’t have any business interfering with their choice.

What’s the point of forcing a gay person to marry a female when it is obvious that he will keep looking for ‘opportunities’ and consequently won’t be able to remain loyal to his spouse. And we all know how important healthy sex is for a successful marriage. I seriously doubt whether a gay individual will be able to enjoy sex with opposite sex!

Finally, does it harm anyone? It’s strictly between two individual who are in love and enjoy each other’s company. We do not need to worry in any case. We are a country with over 1 billion population. As far as procreation is concerned 90 percent of population is all game for adding their bit in population explosion.

    good post! i totally agree with u ..
    but i have this doubt

    the very fact that god didnt make two people of the same sex in the manner they could have sex with each other (im talking about anatomical differences) shows that gay/lesbian sex is against nature ..against what god planned for us.

    so, does that mean its wrong for two people of the same sex to indulge in sex?

    and why isnt prostitution criminalised? or is it?

    • I agree with you about gay/lesbian sex not being the natural thing but humans are prone to experiment. If you look back at history, somehow we tend to go against all the conventions of nature. This being no exception. This is not natural and does not lead to any procreation but then its an individual’s choice. If i try to feel this scenario, I find it wrong but democratically speaking, its normal as long as I am not involved in it.

      About prostitution, I think it should be legalised. We all know it is the oldest profession in human history. If we still try to have a negative bias towards prostitutes, of course we are hypocrites then.

    how can it be legalised? why should it be legalised?
    yes, it has been an old profession ..but no one chooses to be a prostitute! they are forced into it.

  4. i think that gay marriage should be allowed in certain states but not in other states -,~
