Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
sexuality is a fundamental human right

I really have a difficulty with that. A right ? Tell me it's a very basic and profund need for us as for all other living beings, and I agree.

And then the debate's nature is not quite the same, because the community has no duty to protect the right and thus provide the infrastructure - only to recognize the need and see to it there are no obstacles, which is quite different.

It is a recent phenomenon, those claims for new rights.

Agreed.  It's an emotional need, not a physical right.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

I think it could be better worded along the lines of "the state shall not forbid consensual sex and shall not allow groups or individuals to control the sexuality of others."

you are the media you consume.
