    The most frustrating thing I read about this case is that the appeal was brought to the SCOI by conservative religious groups. I can hardly contain the aggravation at people who are supposed to preach love and acceptance instead organizing to re-oppress people they had once lost control over (at least legally). My readings also made it clear that the SCOI bought into the religious arguments, imposing theocratic rule, rather than religious liberty on the populace.

    Yes, a sad day for gays in India. Amazingly, India’s highest court seems to think that it is entitled and even required to ignore the constitution.

    Every time some backwards garbage gets upheld in a country, gays find a way to portray it as the marginal position.

    Indians, find it retrograde? Have you tried being gay there?

    Much like Russia, the laws ARE the country. Laws exist the way they are only because people want them to be or at the very least tolerate them.

    How this can be surprising to people given this is the country with an established caste system and high rates of female infanticide is beyond me.
