DELHI: Recently the Supreme court has justified the meaning of the term ‘third gender’ and has made it very clear that only transgender people are to be included in the third gender, not gays, lesbians or bisexuals.
In their favour, even Supreme Court also upholds OBC seat reservations
The Supreme Court clarified its order by clearly stating these words, “There is no confusion. The judgment had clearly stated that lesbians, gays and bisexuals do not fall under the category of the third gender. Only transgenders fall under the category as per the Supreme Court order.”
The previous records say that in the year 2014, in a landmark judgement, Supreme court ordered the government to also include a third gender category in the forms of OBC quotas but there was a misunderstanding about the meaning of the term “third gender” due to which people started to add gays and lesbians in that OBC quota.
Only to clear that confusion, this judgment was delivered today on 30 June 2016 and is expected to be followed by each and every state of the country.
