    Two Asian/Middle Eastern countries are listed separately by the ILGA under the heading “Legal status of homosexual acts unclear or uncertain”:
    •In Iraq, there is no law against homosexual acts, but homophobic violence is unchecked and self-appointed sharia judges reportedly have imposed sentences for homosexual behavior.
    •In India, enforcement of the law against homosexual activity has been suspended by court action.

    67 Jamaica

    69 St Lucia
    70 St Vincent & the Grenadines
    71 Trinidad & Tobago

    In the United States, anti-sodomy laws were ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003, but they are still on the books in 13 states: Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

    Oceania

    Wrong on all counts.
    Pointing out another's false assumptions and speculation is not whining.

    Saying, "Good for them", is not a hit an run statement.
    It stands on it own, as it is.
    Period.
    Good for them.

    Did I stutter? Good for the Russians or good for nations being vocal in their disgust with this Russian policy?

    The statement you made means absolutely nothing because you refuse to clarify it. When posters tried to debate you on it you said they were speculating, but wouldn't clarify what you were actually saying. That doesn't make sense.

    I do not need to clarify that which is clear.

    It isn't clear at all. It seemed like you were talking about the Russians, but when people confronted you on it you said they were speculating, but refuse to explain. You have no place to complain that people are speculating when you yourself refuse to end the speculation, plain and simple. You have been given ample opportunity to clarify, yet you shy away. Good for who?
