Turkey: Court Says Gay Sex is Natural

TurkeyIn a surprise ruling, a court in Turkey has ruled in favor of a man selling gay porn, stating that gay sex is a natural act. Gay Star News reports:

Yesterday’s (18 February) ruling regarded a trader who was caught selling 125 DVDs of gay and group sex porn. The person, known only by his initials, DM, faced up to four years imprisonment according to article 262/2 of the Turkish penal code that prohibits owning, trafficking, distributing and publishing ‘unnatural sex’ videos. Judge Mahmut Erdemli, however, ruled that sexual orientation can not be considered as ‘unnatural’ and should be respected.

Remember, removing the anti-sodomy laws here in the US was the first step toward gaining respect for the LGBT community – these laws are often used to keep us in an inferior status.
