'Round the world: The same song

*South Korea is thinking of banning you-kn0w-whos from the military, although being 'that way' is not illegal in the country itself (sexuality is actually protected by their constitution), but, "Local military courts dealt with 176 cases of homosexual acts or acts of sexual harassment bewteen 2004 and 2007." I don't know a lot about Korea (except that I like movies that come outta there) but that number seems kinda high, considering only four were reported to be mutually consentual. [AFP]

*Same-sexiness is illegal in India and the UN thinks that that's dumb, but India thinks that when two pee-pees touch, AIDS is created, so their having trouble getting talked out of this. [Kaiser Daily]

*"An Ankeny [Iowa] couple wants a book about two male penguins raising a chick together restricted in an elementary school library, claiming it exposes young children to homosexuality... The couple now is seeking to have it moved to a restriction section so only parents can check it out." Their names are James and Cindy Dacus, and they are closet cases. [Chicago Tribune]
*Plus British religio-folk are trying to figure out their stance on boy/boy buttsecks. Let me know how that works out for you. [full story]
*Deputy Christian Vanneste was convicted in 2006 of "homophobic" speech after stating in 2004 that "homosexuality is inferior to heterosexuality. If it were universalized it would be dangerous for humanity." He also called the behavior of homosexuals "bigoted."...The French Court of Appeals overturned the lower court ruling, remarking that "if the disputed remarks were able to hurt the feelings of certain homosexual people, their contents do not go beyond the limits of freedom of expression."
