India only recognised two genders until 2014’s landmark NALSA judgement, which recognised transgender individuals as the third gender and acknowledged their right to self-identification. The Transgender Persons Bill, 2019 was expected to bring further change. But, the day it passed, was termed a dark day in transgender history by…

    Positive Rights vs. Negative Rights – Learn Liberty

    One reason there’s a lot of confusion about rights from both liberals and conservatives is that there are different sorts of rights.
