India...you're fabulous!

...and now your throw pillows will like totally coordinate with the drapes. And oh, that darling set of candles. Amaaazing! And oh yeah, Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code? Soooo yesterday.

Ok, ok, that was me giving a shout out (can you believe I used "shout out") to India. And yes, throwing in some rather obvious stereotypes just for the heck of it.

Because, in a landmark ruling the Delhi High Court, has struck at of the most archaic and discriminatory laws. Homosexuality in India is no longer a crime. A major step forward.

I'm sure some conservative, religious group is going to appeal this, but it does show we're headed in the right direction. I will read more about it but I'm hoping the Supreme Court and the Legislature put this into law.

I bet you a dollar that the legislature will strike this down.

It might. I hope it doesn't. But in the meantime, even if gets struck down, it has at least brought this debate into the open, made even straight people think about it, and eventually I believe it will lead to something good.
