    "Discrimination against an individual on the basis of sexual orientation is deeply offensive to the dignity and self-worth of the individual. Equality demands that the sexual orientation of each individual in society must be protected." - The Supreme Court.

    While the focus was on Aadhaar, the judgment has implications for several other issues, including sexual rights and freedoms. Specifically, WE HAVE ALL OF THE SEXUAL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS:

    Furthermore, the judgement states: "The rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population cannot be construed to be 'so-called rights'... Their rights are not 'so-called' but are real rights founded on sound constitutional doctrine."

    To recap, here's what the Supreme Court just said to India's many, many LGBTQ citizens:
    • Privacy is a fundamental right.

    • Sexual orientation is an essential attribution of privacy.

    • Discriminating against anyone based on sexual orientation is unconstitutional.

    • Sexual orientation is a part of one's identity, and it is the government's job to protect all our identities.

    There's a pending challenge to 377 in the Supreme Court, but today's ruling means it's BAAAAASICALLY gonna go away.

    “If we just hold privacy as a fundamental right, Naz judgement may become vulnerable”, saidDr. D.Y. Chandrachud, one of the judges of today's verdict.

    As long as it does not offend anyone it does not matter from which body orifice one eats.
