I think they should put every pervert behind bars. That would give us a clean neighborhood for our kids.

Gays are the reason India is becoming destination for sex trips. Each year gays flock to Kolkata for cheap sex vacation. Year round you can see White, Black,Brown and yellow gays searching for "Perfect" vacation in India.

So as usual, the antigay (look for your own self, anyone) basically "adore" this ruling because it silences the pro-gay and the gay, stops gay people, and nullifies what they do.

Yet I could swear from what I'm seeing in media that that's not remotely what's happening. In fact, logic and nothing but logic dictates -- in tandem with what I've seen -- that this will have very little effect on "silencing" any of them or making any of them "invisible." In fact, the ruling itself has made them highly visible and a subject of international concern.

I'm stunned at the world of mendacity the antigay live in; it's one thing to lie to others, another to lie to oneself, and a third to lie in the blatant, patent face of evidence anyone can find on google within 10 seconds.

India is filled with cracked people. Gays were never a problem in ancient India. There are several ancient references to homosexual relationships. Look for Konark Sun Temple Lesbian in google
It were muslim invaders who changed Culture of india drastically. You can enjoy homo-sex in Indian City of Joy "Kolkata". There no one gonna stop you. It's the only place where you can do whatever you want.

This law, dating from 1861, was "India's" first prohibition on consensual sexual acts among consenting adults. It was a product of Victorian British attitudes towards sex, not then contemporary Indian attitudes towards sex. It essentially criminalizes all sexual acts which won't lead to procreation if you finish that way, even if you don't complete the act and regardless of the sex of the participants and includes no excuse for marriage. The notion that this incredibly vague law applies only to acts that are homosexual in nature comes from the unfortunate way this law has been enforced. If this law were actually enforced as it was badly written, the majority of the Indian population would likely have a naughty criminal record.

The Indian Supreme Court wimped out this time in favor of punting this issue to the Parliament, it's a set back, not an end. If Parliament can't find the political will and courage to repeal the law, haul the government back to Court and try again.

The reference was to dowry-based disfigurations and murder of the brides.

Indians will die terrible death. They helped Sri Lankan in the genocide of Tamils. Innocent children, women, men and old people where killed by Tyrants of Sri Lanka. Brutal killings, rapes, kidnapping..... oh lord please don't let Indians die peaceful death. I wish to see them beg death.

North Indians are the most backward people in the world. Dravidians are the sole owners of India. These aryan pigs came rolling to Dravidian land and claimed India as their own.
