Suppressing s^xual orientation is the problem: SC

It's known that a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court is looking into the legalities of decriminalizing homos*xuality.  While the SC has reserved its verdict, Justice Chandrachud on Tuesday made some wise comments on the baseless contention that homos*xuality is one of the causes for the spread of HIV.  

"It’s the suppression of s^xual orientation, not its recognition, that has contributed to the spread of HIV.  The cause of s^xually transmitted diseases is not s^xual intercourse.  Rather it's unprotected s*xual intercourse. A village woman may get the disease from her husband, a migrant worker. This way would you now want to make s*xual intercourse itself a crime?” Justice Chandrachud opined.  

Quoting the example of South Africa, whose President once refused to accept international aid for the HIV affected people on the grounds that there are no HIV infected people in his country, the Justice reiterated that suppression is the problem and noted that the country's judiciary reversed the President's decision.
