Murder, Bigamy, Adultery, Incest, Theft, Dacoity, etc sections of IPC can be repealed too

Good to be back at blogging after 4 years. In fact, i've been forced to come back to save time. I'm tired of defending the recent Supreme Court of India judgement upholding section 377 of IPC in various forums and finally decided to post a blog (a sarcastic one) which can save my time. I need not type my opinion on this issue again and again, rather can just quote this as my opinion and move on. This is in continuation to my previous 2007-08 posts on Abnormal Sexual Behaviour, Adoption by Homosexuals and Sexual Orientation.

If Homosexuals can demand exemption of IPC 377 by quoting the ‘perceived’ rare homosexuals acts of over 1000 species, then the following provisions of IPC as well as many more Statutes can also be scrapped under the same logic, because the same 1000 living species are also seen exhibiting the following ‘NATURAL’ acts:

299 to 304  -  Culpable Homicide and Murder (animals kill often sometimes due to injury in fights which is CH and sometimes through planned Murder)

378, 390, 391  - Theft, Robbery and Dacoity (You might think how dacoity? Yes Hyenas are known for dacoity. lol)

493, 494, 495 & 497 – Concubine, Bigamy and Adultery (animals are known to have multiple partners)

496  -  Fradulent Marriage

And last but not the least, don’t prosecute people for their Incest relationship under 376 (there is no separate section for incest), because animals are predominantly into incestuous relationships.

Are not the above acts ‘ORIENTATION’ too ;) Too many species are seen exhibiting these acts.

If the above sections are taken out of IPC, then the Government can save lots of Tax payer money by closing scores of Magistrate courts :)

Apropos, we cannot approve every behaviour that achieves critical mass as right. If we do that, as mentioned earlier, we will open the Pandora's Box...

Bigamy, Adultery, Incest, Prostitution, etc are also between consenting adults and how 'conveniently' you overlook them, even though they also fall into the 'so called natural acts'.

WRT //which cause pain to other people//, again we apply the pain cause conveniently here. Have you ever thought about the pain the parents, the near and dear undergo when they come to know about the alternative sexual orientation of their kid? Is 'that' pain not qualified? They say the physical injury may wane over a period of time, but the emotional injury/stress linger on for long. So let us not conveniently qualify pain...

The honourable SC might have taken all this into consideration before pronouncing this judgement. There are 'n' number of unwelcome acts that can happen with 4 walls. We cannot stop all those. It is their wish and if they can conceal it within 4 walls, we need not unnecessarily poke our nose into that. But if they want a 'legal approval' for all unwelcome acts, then we should put a stop there, because it opens a Pandora's box.

Even Australian and Ugandan SC/Govt have banned homosexual acts after the pronouncement of our SC judgement. Thus let us accept the sane decision of our honourable SC and move forward.

Acceptation of people is important. Thank you for all attitudes, are all important too.
