Well, gay sex was decriminalized in India, so that’s great news. For those of you saying, “Well it’s about TIME, India!” I’d like to remind you that the U.S. didn’t decriminalize gay sex until 2003 (Lawrence v. Texas, holla!). We’re also still arguing about whether women can be in charge of their own bodies and whether black people’s lives actually matter. So, don’t give the U.S. too much credit here.
They say if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. This is actually not true. You can complain all you want. Especially if you’re someone who has been blocked from voting. And in the U.S., we block a whole lot of people from voting. It’s supposed to be a super-important right, but it’s often easier to buy a gun than it is to vote.
