“Ohh you’re a gay? That’s disgusting dude. You should be afraid of god. don’t you know, god created man and woman not just man?”
Well, we all or many of us know about article 377 of INDIAN PENAL CODE which states,’Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.’
The interesting fact about the law is, it was brought up by the British in 1860 and United Kingdom decriminalized homosexuality in 1967.

Lets talk about why people are so afraid of homosexuality? Is it really unnatural? Is it really a sin? Is GOD watching us and will judge us in the end?
Personally I am an atheist but if god really exist then I would think GOD is the greatest evil in the universe. Because it’s a mysterious being who lives in the sky, doesn’t get bothered by the starving children but is very much interested in what two consenting adults are doing inside a closed room. ARE YOU FUCKIN KIDDING ME?!
Here are some quotes from the best selling fictions (religious texts) in the world:
If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
-Leviticus 20:13 (HOLY BIBLE)
The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,
-Timothy 1:10 (HOLY BIBLE)
lets move to Islam
“…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” – An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the “rain of stones” on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people’s destruction. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in suras 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40). (HOLY QURAN)
“Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, “And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing”

well Hinduism doesn’t really say anything about homosexuality or transgender but we have our so called gurus who teach us that homosexuality is a ‘PAAP’.
But the things were different in ancient India. We have Naradmuni who fell into a pond and emerged as a woman and after that he gets the idea of MAYA. Another story is of lord shiva who bathed in yamuna to become a woman so that he could leela with lord krishna. There’s a story from kritiwas ramayan, two women used to make love in the absence of their husband and gave birth to a boneless kid.
1) People can not digest if someone is doing anything different from them or rest of the society. People who are HOMOPHOBIC takes religion as a weapon which includes god as a tool. These very people who say homosexuality is unnatural believe in a: virgin who gave birth to a boy.
2) The whole world was flooded and a 800years old guy and his family built an arc which carried one pair of all the animals and then they repopulated the world.
3) The World is 6000years old.
4) A Guy who used to ride a white horse with wings.
5) A 50 years old guy who married a 6 years old girl and had sex with her when she was 9.
6) A Guy who have an elephant head.
7) A Monkey man who lifted and carried a mountain from Himalayas to Sri Lanka while flying.
8) A War in which one army have a monkey army and other one of monsters. And the funny thing is monkeys won the war.
I think its enough that religion have much more unnatural things in it and should not worry about people’s choices.
Lets see what science has to say about this.
In 1974, the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. Studies have proven that homosexuality is common in nature. More that 1500 species are known to show homosexual behavior including zebra, baboons, dolphins, sheep, buffalo, ducks, foxes, elephants, horses, elephants, gorillas, moose, house cats, pics, rats, swan, rabbits, lions to name a few.

Scientists studying homosexuality are focusing on three factors, genes, hormones and birth order. Studies have shown that when one of the twin is a homosexual, 70% of the time the other one is also a homosexual. This shows genes play a crucial role in determining the one’s sexuality. Its a same case of if a person is right or left handed. We don’t discriminate against or punish the left handed people.
ITS NOT UNNATURAL PEOPLE! YOUR THINKING IS! CHANGE NOW!!!
