failscarf saidYay Turkey!
don't "yay turkey!"
did u even read the article?
I did. And it goes like this:
"The effort to add sexual orientation to the draft constitution was championed by
the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party
and the Nationalist Movement Party.
However Turkish LGBT rights group Kaos GL say they fear the mention of homosexuality in the draft constitution will not make it to the final version
and doubt that it will have any great effect even if it is left in.
'As we have so many homophobic [and] transphobic judges in Turkey
, it is difficult to expect that their interpretation of hate crimes will change all of a sudden by this addition,' a spokesperson for the group messaged GSN.'This whole thing is just a draft, [the sexual orientation and gender identity] part can be deleted later.
Notice the words in bold. Yes, I read it; and I'll wait till the final outcome to make an opinion. As it stands, it doesn't look like it's going to make it. The Muslim leaders have a long way to go before accepting such a controversial proposal.
