I come from a country where homosexuality is such a taboo subject that it is not even covered much on the media. A news channel that discusses the issue is actually considered quite ‘brave’. Previously, I haven’t really gotten the chance to think about homosexuality and my viewpoint on it.

All those who criticize homosexuals and define them abnormal, who are they to? What exactly is the definition of normal? Who defines that this person is normal and that person is not normal. No study has ever proven that gays cannot function as normal individuals or that their thought processes aren’t normal and hence that is the reason that homosexuality was removed, after it last appeared in DSM 3(diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders). I think the definition of normal differs with every society. It differs according to ones culture and has nothing to do with one type of individual who is just unique or stands out from the rest- that does not define him or her as abnormal.

I feel that we as nations are big hypocrites. We talk about respecting religion but we do not respect individuals.
