LGBTQ+ Rights in Your Nation

Postby Cavirfi » Tue May 04, 2021 10:57 pm

The topic of LGBTQ+ Rights has been a matter of debate over the past few decades, with several people from both sides of the Left/Right binary supporting it and several people from both sides opposing it, however as the discussion of LGBTQ+ Rights expand in real life, it is important to note, that LGBTQ+ Rights is also a topic within the NationStates metaverse.

We, Cavirfi, have conducted a survey to measure LGBTQ+ Rights in your nation, through 2 forms (in which you can choose one, the other, or both): A full form and a simplified form.

The full form will require you to answer the questions using words such as: Yes, No, Vaguely, Maybe, It depends, and so on.

The simple form will only require you to tick with an:

"[x]" for Yes
"[O]" for if there is vague language that would de jure make a particular right legal, but de facto make it illegal.

and to leave the "[]" blank if a certain right is illegal.

So anyways here are the forms in question,

No, as the Bill of Rights Act 1951 contains the following passage: "Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, including the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and opinions of any kind in any form without interference."

4. Is conversion therapy illegal in your nation? No, but anyone who undergoes it must give full medical consent as with any other procedure, and it's very rare anyway.

Postby Palmyrion » Tue May 04, 2021 11:33 pm

Sexual Activity
1. Is sexual activity between 2 consenting adults of the same sex legal? Yes. In Palmyrian law, the minimum age of consent is 18 - but for cases where both parties are minors, the minimum age of consent is 14. This applies to both homosexual and heterosexual sex acts.
2. If it's illegal, what are the punishments for it? None, because it's not illegal.
3. Is the age of consent for heterosexual and homosexual activity equal? Yes. See (1)

Gender Identity
1. Can citizens of your nation change their legal gender? Yes - but in one's Identity Certificate, one will be listed as "Trans (MTF/FTM)" in their gender section.
2. Can citizens of your nation undergo gender transitional surgery? Yes.
3. Is gender transitional surgery REQUIRED for one to change their legal gender? Commonly yes, but alternatives include a medical waiver that signifies "complete medical transition" - a term that is quite hotly debated in Palmyrion.

Military Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ Citizens allowed to join your nation's military? Yes. We have, in fact, a transgender Medal of Valour recipient for her actions in the 2016-2018 Reunion War. (Her gruesome fate in the hands of a Muslim extremist gang is an entirely another story)
2. If no, are closeted LGBTQ+ Citizens required to undergo a "gay test" (like the one in Turkey) before joining?
3. If yes and your nation imposes conscription, are LGBTQ+ citizens included in the draft? Yes.

Discrimination Protections
1. Does your nation's constitution ban discrimination against LGBTQ+ citizens? No.
2. If no, are there laws that ban such discrimination? The Supreme Court has affirmed in a 2016 ruling that denying access to basic services and commodities upon the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity is a civil offence.
3. Is speech that mocks/insults the LGBTQ+ Community banned in your nation? "Hate speech" in Palmyrion is defined as "incitation to lawlessness against a certain demographic", which effectively makes it incitation based on prejudice against a demographic.

Recognition of Same-Sex relationships
1. Does your nation have constitutional limits that ban same-sex marriage/civil unions or the prohibition thereof? No.
2. Can 2 citizens of the same sex register for a civil union in your nation? Yes.
3. Can 2 citizens of the same sex marry each other in your nation? Yes. Religious organisations are not obliged to officiate same sex weddings.

Adoption Rights
1. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are not in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? No.
2. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? Yes.
3. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens adopt children through a surrogacy? Yes.
4. If no, is this banned for Straight citizens as well? Surrogacy is generally societally discouraged, with adoption being socially preferred.

Misc. Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ citizens allowed to donate blood? Yes; blood donors are subject to screenings regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc.
2. Is same-sex sex education taught in your nation's schools? As part of the comprehensive sex education curriculum of the Royal Commonwealth, yes.
3. Referring to Question 2, if yes, did this come about naturally or by law? By law.
4. Is conversion therapy illegal in your nation? Yes. Anyone caught being a conversion therapy practitioner is arrested and employed in our analogue to MK-ULTRA.
Palmyrion is here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And he's out of bubblegum.

NOTICE: The first question in the Recognition of Relationships category has "or the prohibition of it thereof" so if your nation bans the prohibition of same-sex marriage, you can answer yes on that question, just like the nations that ban same-sex marriage.

It's 3:04 AM where I am right now, so I think I'll just reserve a spot on this thread to comment on tomorrow.

Edit: I can fill all this in now. I just won't use the [x]/[o]/[] system. Plain yeses, nos, and somewhat's. Let's begin now.

Sexual Activity
1. Is sexual activity between 2 consenting adults of the same sex legal? Yes.
2. If it's illegal, what are the punishments for it? It's not illegal.
3. Is the age of consent for heterosexual and homosexual activity equal? Yes

Gender Identity
1. Can citizens of your nation change their legal gender? Yes.
2. Can citizens of your nation undergo gender transitional surgery? Yes.
3. Is gender transitional surgery REQUIRED for one to change their legal gender? No, but it is required to legally be recognized as transsexual (which differs from transgender).

Military Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ Citizens allowed to join your nation's military? Yes.
2. If no, are closeted LGBTQ+ Citizens required to undergo a "gay test" (like the one in Turkey) before joining? No.
3. If yes and your nation imposes conscription, are LGBTQ+ citizens included in the draft? No, but they have the choice to join if they want to.

Discrimination Protections
1. Does your nation's constitution ban discrimination against LGBTQ+ citizens? Homosexuality wasn't a very common topic to hear about in my country (at the time), and trans people didn't exist (at the time) either, when my constitution was written, so no.
2. If no, are there laws that ban such discrimination? This depends on what type of "discrimination" you mean. A doctor is forced to cater for a trans person for whatever needs they may have if that trans person decides to stay with the same doctor. If you mean baking wedding cakes for the LGBTQIA+, the bakers have the right to refuse out of morals.
3. Is speech that mocks/insults the LGBTQ+ Community banned in your nation? No, it's free speech, although using slurs against the LGBTQIA+ is considered a dick move by the majority of North Sonovian society.

Recognition of Same-Sex relationships
1. Does your nation have constitutional limits that ban same-sex marriage/civil unions or the prohibition thereof? No.
2. Can 2 citizens of the same sex register for a civil union in your nation? Sure.
3. Can 2 citizens of the same sex marry each other in your nation? Yes, but a pastor is allowed to refuse service. Just find another pastor to wed you.

Adoption Rights
1. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are not in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? Yes.
2. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? Yes.
3. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens adopt children through a surrogacy? No.
4. If no, is this banned for Straight citizens as well? Yes.

Misc. Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ citizens allowed to donate blood? Yes, but although my nation is modern-tech, we're slightly behind the rest of the world in scientific advancement, so scientists are unsure if the blood of a homosexual person is different than the blood of a heterosexual person. Therefore, bags of blood are marked with LGBTQIA+ symbols.
2. Is same-sex sex education taught in your nation's schools? Yes, but students are protected by confidentiality law between students and schools when it comes to student schedules, making sure students can't get outed for taking those classes.
3. Referring to Question 2, if yes, did this come about naturally or by law? Naturally at first, then by law. Additional laws were added on to protect LGBTQIA+ curious students.
4. Is conversion therapy illegal in your nation? It's not illegal, but it's allowed to be taken only by people who want that service. Nobody's forced to take it.

Sexual Activity
1. Is sexual activity between 2 consenting adults of the same sex legal? Yes.
2. If it's illegal, what are the punishments for it?
3. Is the age of consent for heterosexual and homosexual activity equal? Yes.

Gender Identity
1. Can citizens of your nation change their legal gender? Yes.
2. Can citizens of your nation undergo gender transitional surgery? Yes, but this must be on the provision of free and informed consent (and related hoops that must be jumped through).
3. Is gender transitional surgery REQUIRED for one to change their legal gender? Yes, but only to those aged 21 or over.

Military Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ Citizens allowed to join your nation's military? Yes - (what little remains of) the Tinhamptonian Army, like all employers, is required not to discriminate in employment due to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or sexual characteristics.
2. If no, are closeted LGBTQ+ Citizens required to undergo a "gay test" (like the one in Turkey) before joining?
3. If yes and your nation imposes conscription, are LGBTQ+ citizens included in the draft?

Discrimination Protections
1. Does your nation's constitution ban discrimination against LGBTQ+ citizens? Not yet...
2. If no, are there laws that ban such discrimination? Yes - as consolidated in Section 25A of the Education Act 1963, Section 5A of the Trade in Goods Act 1938, Section 2 of the Fair Employment Act 2000, and Section 1 of the Discrimination Act 2004. And, of course, elsewhere.
3. Is speech that mocks/insults the LGBTQ+ Community banned in your nation? Tinhampton does not ban speech simply because it insults a particular group. It does prohibit speech which is offensive, threatening or insulting to a person based on SOGIESC and such of the like, however. It was unanimously ruled by the Tinhamptonian Supreme Court in Union of Gay and Lesbian Tinhamptonians vs Gallagher (2006) that "the mere quotation of religious scriptures in a manner which expresses concern at an individual's sexual behaviour does not automatically meet the tests applied in Tinhamptonian law for what are commonly referred to as "hate speech offences" regarding sexual orientation any more than stating such a simple, otherwise ungrounded concern would."

Recognition of Same-Sex relationships
1. Does your nation have constitutional limits that ban same-sex marriage/civil unions or the prohibition thereof? The Tinhamptonian Constitution's Thirty-Sixth Amendment legalises same-sex marriage; see below.
2. Can 2 citizens of the same sex register for a civil union in your nation? No. It has been impossible for anybody, regardless of sexual orientation, to enter a civil partnership with another person since December 31st 2014; all civil partnerships in force on that date were automatically converted to marriages.
3. Can 2 citizens of the same sex marry each other in your nation? Yes.

Adoption Rights
1. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are not in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? All individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or marital status, are allowed to adopt... although very few actually do so.
2. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens who are in a same-sex civil union/marriage adopt children? As above.
3. Can openly LGBTQ+ citizens adopt children through a surrogacy? Yes: Section 5A of the Trade in Goods Act 1938 has extraterritorial application towards all entities offering goods and services to Tinhamptonians, regardless of location.
4. If no, is this banned for Straight citizens as well?

Misc. Rights
1. Are openly LGBTQ+ citizens allowed to donate blood? Yes. The Tinhamptonian government required men who had sex with men to wait six months before giving blood from September 1986 until the passage of GA#546, the Blood Donation Safety and Equality Act, in April 2021.
2. Is same-sex sex education taught in your nation's schools? Same-sex relationships are taught about in Tinhamptonian schools.
3. Referring to Question 2, if yes, did this come about naturally or by law? For the most part, comprehensive sexuality education was forcibly rolled out in Tinhamptonian schools through the (municipal) Education Act of 2007.
4. Is conversion therapy illegal in your nation? Yes, but only effective from July 1st 2021.

We do not utilize any state unions. The only remotely related thjing is the "Caregivers Act" of 1971: any number of consenting adults may register as such when they take responsibility for a ward. Caring for a disabled or elderly person, a child (be it adopted or their own), we wish to reward those who take care of others. The other comparable thing we have is the request for shared housing, usually the biggest step a relationship takes and celebrated by relatives and friends: Housewarming parties pretty muich equal weddings these days. There are also laws regarding adults' relationships: to prevent meddling relatives or self-proclaimed moral guardians from interfering and top ensure every citizen is free to live the way he or she desires.
