    Read this harrowing account of a LGBT Indian's ordeal at the hands of Chennai police. What is especially disgusting is what the policemen say:

    Incredible India, indeed...

    Uhm, they can't threaten just anyone with sec. 377 action. All he has to do is allege rape, and if the policemen are politically connected, reach out to the countless anti-rape organizations out there (who are gender-neutral). If it reaches the national media, then those policemen are toast. Tamil Nadu's chief minister pulls no strings at the centre, not even in Rajya Sabha, and will certainly not antagonize Modi over such an incident. The policemen would be toast.

    But yes, I do believe that section 377 should be scrapped. Its "enforcement" is doing more harm to people than actually preventing "unnatural sex."

    The Supreme Court order on Section 377 has divided time into two halves - before Dec 2013 and after Dec 2013. And this has affected not just the LGBT community but others as well. One heterosexual writer/director who was impacted by this Judgment is Chaitanya Varad of Underdog entertainment (who are famous for their satirical plays and sex comedies.)
