Curious: have any governments or NGOs made the hard-headed economic case to other countries about not persecuting sexual minorities?
I would imagine that certain prejudices, because they drive people into the underworld, have a detrimental economic effect.
So, what do you think? Is there a precedent for this kind of tactical discussion?
I think the economics of persecuting gay or trans people is not promising.
I’m sure this is all very un-PC of me, but I’m sure we’ll get over it.
It’s not the most moral or principled argument you want; economic pragmatism may end up an effective bridge in the short to medium term.
