You never know which is the right age to judge and know your sexual preferences but it definitely needs a lot of thinking and patience. Just because someone is attracted to a particular gender for a specific time, doesn’t give people the right to judge their preferences or give them labels like ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’. If two girls are sitting too close to each other and laughing and giggling a lot by themselves, it doesn’t mean that they lesbians. Maybe they are just friends.
Recently, Kamala Girls School in south Kolkata accused 10 girls of being lesbians. The authorities of this school don’t have any proper evidence or instance of these accusations. The headmistress said that some students have complained against the girls. When the administration confronted the girls, they admitted to it. The headmistress asked the students to admit it in writing and informed their guardians.
“Some students had complained against 10 students of indulging in such behaviour. We called those students and they admitted it. Considering the sensitive nature of the issue, I asked them to admit it in writing. I have got written admissions from all 10 students” news agency IANS quoted the acting headmistress as saying. The headmistress also said that she had called the parents to bring the fact to limelight for them that their children should be brought on the right course/track so that they don’t follow homosexuality. The guardians, meanwhile, have rubbished the allegation saying that “holding hands, or putting an arm on each other’s shoulders” doesn’t count as homosexuality.
Homosexuality, according to many is a curse and is not even considered as sexual preference. It has always been love between a girl and a boy and nothing else. People against homosexuality; also think that love between two same genders is something related to possessing some demonic curse or power in them.
