How does YN feel about LGBTQ+ people in positions of power?

Postby Atmovia » Thu May 31, 2018 3:02 pm

So, the leader of my nation, President Õismaa, is a lesbian. I am also a lesbian IRL.
I'm curious as to how different nations here would react to the leader of a nation, or perhaps another position such as diplomats, etc being LGBTQ+.


I know not everyone is as accepting of it as others may be, so I am expecting to see some who are not going to like it, etc. I can accept that. But as I am, try to think of this as your nations and your leaders "characters", as that is what I am doing, any rude comments made about my IRL gayness I'd rather not see, so try to keep it civil, please. :)

Anyway, obviously in Atmovia it is not an issue to anyone at all.

Religion is a major influence on the empire. As such, LGBTQ+ people are heavily discriminated against and even attacked and murdered.

The Imperial-State of Soleanna, a militaristic yet theocratic nation sees such accusation as a blasphemous sin. The fact that nation is being led by a human disgrace is absurd.... one who thinks a rainbow is the answer to everything are ludicrously mistaken. Soleanna sees the nation in question as a delinquent hivemind, needing retribution.

Religion is also a major influence on the Theocracy of Happy Christian Land. However, it's not *conservative* religion in this case - it's Mainline Protestantism. Same-sex marriage is legal, and relations with Iceland are good.

So it's fine here. We haven't yet had an LGBT head of state in Happy Christian Land, but there are other positions of power that are filled by gay or lesbian bishops.

Kynelanders are completely and utterly fine with LGBT persons being in non-royal positions of power. They don’t consider it worthy of concern.

However, Kynelanders disapprove of homosexual monarchs. It’s not considered fine, as the monarch wouldn’t sire an heir.

We don't want gays or transvestites in office in the same way that we don't want a schizophrenic in office. In order to be a leader of the Aryan people, or to represent them, you obviously need to be in a sound state of mind.

We treat LGBTQ+ people with equal rights compared to heterosexual citizens, and we have a lot of them in government. Knowing that there aren’t any restrictions on who one can love actually streamlines the process of governing by a significant amount. Plus, we allow small scale polygamy (2-5 people can be in relationships with one another at once), which actually reduces bullying a lot.

TLDR, we’re radically tolerant and it works.
