Oh, and when I say faith-based, I'm totally being ironic. If these people had faith, then maybe they wouldn't look at the complex spectrum of human sexuality and just assume that God (or the Gods, or Lloth the Spider Queen) must have fucked up when he made gay people.

Today's ruling found that the Delhi High Court was overstepping its authority when it dismantled an 1861 law that forbids 'intercourse against the order of nature,' which seemed like a pretty messed up law to begin with. Like, 'against the order of nature' could mean a lot of things. Is anything other than missionary style off the table? What about sex toys? Vibrators and blow-up dolls don't typically occur in nature. For that matter, are contraceptives unnatural and therefore against the law as well? And since the court is apparently pining for the days of the British Raj, maybe after everybody's done having straight, unprotected missionary sex, they could sing God Save the Queen?
Look, I've never been to India, but this ruling seems like a huge step backwards for the world's largest democracy and straight up medieval for a country that used to decorate its holy sites with bas relief guides to boning. C'mon Indian Supreme Court, you guys are better than this.
