The issue of homosexuality is not new, but its increasing spread may generate government reactions in Muslim-majority countries and others popular with Arab and Muslim communities in Western countries. Although the enactment of laws is a purely internal issue, the criminalization of such cases in third-world countries may lead to criticism by great powers, Western countries, and international organizations alike, motivated that limiting or criminalizing them is a restriction of freedoms and rights. However, communities remain able to face their concerns for their children (due to their exposure to curricula that call or indicate what is meant by that type of demand) linked to several factors, the most important of which are their electoral strength and negotiation with candidates to give them the right to choose to study those curricula instead of mandatory.

Sexual Perversion: Inequality in Grants and Prevention

Public issues are often turned into political debates at the domestic level. This applies to states with different forms of government ranging from democracy to dictatorship. In particular, these unprecedented demands are the focus of attention of political parties in democratic countries, as adopting or opposing them brings votes in elections by adopting policies in one direction. Among those issues are the demands of individuals and groups for freedom to formally mate two people of the same sex or convert the person from one sex to another and other similar things. As a result, political parties in democratic countries adopt or prevent this during statements and election campaigns and give promises to voters to work to prevent or grant those demands if they win.

Absolute Grants:

Europe is the most rights-awarding and least-restricted continent compared to other democratic countries such as East Asian countries (South Korea and Japan) and even the United States of America. Therefore, the granting of such demands dates back to the 1990s extensively or perhaps before it as well. Here we must distinguish between such demands having a legislative side and individual practices that are not deterred by law. For example, if a person in such countries wishes to change his sex to a different sex, there is no legal objection to this causing personal or general harm. On the other hand, some claimants may require legislation to make it official, such as granting the right to marry between two persons of the same sex, as it has civil consequences.
