Long before the eradication of Section 377 of Indian penal code, the author of this paper analyzed the text with a special emphasis on these key terms:carnal intercourse, sodomy, LGBT rights, perversions, homosexuality, unnatural offences and the expression “against the order of nature”.
The author questioned, (a) the opaque polysemy of 'carnal intercourse'; (b) the nature-culture binary (Derrida) and lastly (c) the demands for LGBT rights that legitimate the sovereign in a form of synthetic hegemony.
This Bangla paper was written in a quasi direct discourse following the age-old tradition of dialoguing. After all, the legal conversation is based on the dialoguing of two — subscriber and opponent.
