Walt Kelly is credited as being largely responsible for halting the shameful era of McCarthy, but getting us to laugh at him through his Pogo comic strip. Comics are not only for light amusement, they are often our conscience. Thank you, Scott Adams.
In India, these archaic laws exist - and supreme court just said that as per the existing law - homosexuality is illegal. Yea, Parliament needs to change it surely, but Indians are not really against homosexuality and i really think these laws are laws on Paper only. Even if homosexual people declare their sexuality publicly in India(and many couples including famous fashion designers did it the day supreme court interpreted the existing law), i dont believe law will take course and arrest such people.
So, just to be clear, this is a law in paper only and not at all implemented practically. Yea, stupid laws exist, we just choose to ignore them.
Back to the dilbert, i am glad scott is highlighting these issues, i hope our politicians recognize the need to do away with archaic laws that show us in poor light. But, again , would like to reiterate, that these are laws on Paper only, and i dont think this law may have been used at all even once during the last 50 yrs......
