LGBT - A Taboo in Today's World
Manjinder Singh, Dr. Renu
Not long ago, we heard the story of a young student who jumped off the roof of his college hostel, his only fault was that he was gay. India, where the usage of the word sex itself is considered a taboo, not to mention India being the 2nd most populous country, homosexuality is a farfetched idea that people despise, so much that they wouldnt even consider it. Even after 70 years of independence and being in what seems like the forever race of becoming westernised, couldnt become a peoples country. Isnt choosing ones own sexuality or sexual orientation a part of personal liberty Doesnt the devilish Section 377 IPC (unnatural offences) go directly against the right to personal liberty Why cant we accept that the Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders in our society Isnt it very ironical for a country to somehow worship the transgenders and yet despise their whole community the biggest problem of our country is, What will people say We know being modern doesnt mean being westernised, but what if the western countries are adopting something that is actually modernrecognising the lesbians, gays, bisexuals and the transgenders of the society and giving them equal footing amongst others.
