Talk:LGBT rights in South Korea

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Citations[edit]

Almost the entirety of the introduction is not cited, and quite frankly I question the particular biased word choice utilized such as "challenges", "discrimination", and "legal protection", when quite clearly the only section that is cited reports an essence of freedom and laws to protect against discrimination.

But if there is a strong sense of actual discrimination (in South Korea), then cases and references need to be cited to support it. Otherwise the article is rampant with an unsupported and unfounded personal opinion, that seems to me, designed to press an agenda. Colonel Marksman (talk) 19:44, 28 June 2015 (UTC)


Re: Early 1990's Paragraph[edit]

"It appears though, that the attitude regarding homosexuality is softening in South Korea. It would be safe to say that South Korea's current atmosphere in relation to homosexuals resembles that of the United States in the early 1990's"

This is an unsourced argument and might represent an opinion rather than a verified fact.

Although i do not doubt that certainly some change in attitude is in progress, the above might be a hasty generalization and gross exaggeration.

On a secondary note, what reference is provided for the homosexual "atmosphere" of the "early 1990's" in the United States?

Unless proper citations are included that show the relations to the 1990's gay rights movements in the United States, i will proceed to delete the above quoted segment.

Hi Zz8w! It would be desirable and indeed necessary to provide some referencing for your recent claims especially about the conflict potential with muslim immigrants. I could easily imagine that this is so, but that is just not enough for wikipedia. Without proper referencing, it will be difficult to retain your edits. G Purevdorj (talk) 18:07, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Please help expand a related article: Korea Queer Culture Festival[edit]

Editors interested in this topic may want to help me expand this article for a WP:DYK entry. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:48, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
