India's Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination.
The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society.
"We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems.
"This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition. We have to educate and make people aware that we exist and there's nothing abnormal about us. This will give a boost to the transgenders who want to study or work but were denied a chance. They can now be part of the mainstream,"

Just bizarre, especially on heels of the reinstatement of anti-sodomy laws.
I have a feeling the Modi admin might just ignore those quotas.
sounds very reasonable.
Isn’t it already exist? What about ‘it’ sex?
I don’t think this is going to go over well with the general Indian population.
Narendra Modi, who looks to maybe win the presidential election now in progress, will not like this; he’s a Hindu traditionalist.

(HAha! I see eet ees vorking already!)
At one point in the past few months, the Indian Supreme Court recriminalized homosexuality. So this is a dumbfounding decision.
