In December 2013, homosexual sex was made illegal in India. Do you think this decision is right or wrong. Why was the decision made?
Hey fritzie and greg, I actually live in the UK and I am studying this topic as an external project qualification to help me get into university. I have been looking at how the western culture has been affecting the Indian. In one of the news stories it was interesting to read that a man said that it was the western culture corrupting the minds of indian youths, and that they would not allow for this western culture to enter India. Personally, I think it is wrong. I believe that being homosexual is nature not nurture. I can only imagine that coming out as gay for many is a terrifying thing and many will shy away from it for years. I feel so sorry for Indian people who are trapped in a different body all there lives - they wont be happy or add to society for any real purpose if they are not living the life they want or have been given. And with the rise in technology and scientific research there are new ways that gay couples can have children. So really what harm is this causing?? Homosexuality is natural, just like a Lejan said - it is illogical to put it into a legal frame work. Many may argue against me - I am interested to hear your views.

What has the western culture brough to india? are these things good or bad?
Thank you so much for your detailed response. I am english, writing a Alevel project for an extended project qualification and after visiting India in the summer, and wanting to study human geography at university i have decided to explore the topic. In terms of my homosexuality point (being new to TED, i wasnt to sure what i was doing) but i found a few articles where people had suggested that westernisation had brought the idea to india that homosexuality was normal..here is the articles i looked into.. http://blogs.wsj.com/indiarealtime/2013/12/11/live-blog-supreme-court-rules-gay-sex-illegal/ http://ibnlive.in.com/news/bjp-backs-section-377-says-western-culture-cannot-be-brought-to-india/439673-3.html http://ibnlive.in.com/news/gay-sex-illegal-in-india-again-full-text-of-the-sc-judgement/439052-3.html not sure if i have got the wrong end of the stick?? thank you so much for your response.
