Sex Decriminalized In India

So the other day when you enjoyed that most exceptional blowjob you committed a heinous crime under the Indian Penal Code (IPC). People caught taking or giving blowjobs, or any such jobs for that matter, were until recently, punishable up to life in prison! So all those frothing over the Delhi high courts judgment, de-criminalizing consensual gay sex, should stop whining and thank your stars. You've just been saved a big baggage of sins. By the way, this law was crafted by the same guy (Thomas Macaulay) who once said -

"A single shelf of a good European library is worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia. It is, I believe, no exaggeration to say, that all the historical information which has been collected from all the books written may be found in the most paltry abridgments used at preparatory schools in England."

And why are we so obsessed with the sex life of our nation? The ho-halla against the recent Delhi high court judgment, is such a waste of time. Its sad to see a nation plagued with poverty, hunger, inequality, corruption, illiteracy, bureaucracy, regionalism, jingoism, religion etc., obsessing over the sexual orientation of its citizens. Government should spend its energies on more urgent matters and not get caught up in such frivolous issues.

The argument against gay's is that they make sex in a way which is against the order of nature. Order of nature my foot. Who decides what is the order of nature? May be nature is fedup with us 6 billion plus parasites and gay/lesbian orientation is its way of contraception! Besides, every thing in this world happens on the whims and fancies of lord god the merciful. Perhaps this is what s/he wants. Who are we interfere?

5 to 10 percent of any population is said to be differently oriented, which means there are million of gays in our nation of 1 billion. By repressing such a wast number of people, I believe, we are acting against the order of nature. Good thing that the court began the long process of emancipation for such people. For ages gays/lesbians have been married off to unsuspecting spouses for the sake of honor etc... For ages, these people have been force to go underground and live a life of fear and disgrace and all that for no fault of theirs. They did not choose to be born that way! Imagine the amount of suffering we have already caused! Delhi court's judgment is the beginning of a long process of social redemption...

And yes, being gay is not just about sexual orientation. There is much more to a gay/lesbian person then their sexual orientation. They are just like us, good, bad, ugly, evil, human... We should be more open and understanding. After all we have a history of tolerance and accommodation etc...

And yes, the court has only de-criminalized gay-sex between consenting adults. This not the same as legalization. Legalization grants you rights and privileges, de-criminalization does not.

And yes, did you notice, only the religious and political scoundrels are going nuts over this whole issue...

And so, now that sex has been decriminalized lets work on decriminalizing religion and politics too...
