South Korean army officials tend to be presumably conducting an army-wide look for homosexual people among country’s soldiers, after a gender tape between two troops is uploaded online, according to an investigation by a non-profit group.
Military investigators have already been wanting to dox suspected homosexual troops by using matchmaking apps, with one or more soldier arrested up until now for allegedly participating in homosexual functions, in line with the Military people legal rights Center of Korea (MHRCK), an activist people. The allegations draw awareness of Korea’s conservative attitudes towards homosexuality, particularly in the military, in fact it is the country’s most powerful organizations. It’s a crime for Korean troops to engage in consensual homosexual acts, but that’s not true of same-sex connections; outside the military, same-sex connections were legal but not commonly accepted.
On Monday (April 17), the middle circulated screenshots of in-app discussions dated Feb. 15 showing a debate between two soldiers about trading images and which armed forces models they offer in. MHRCK alleges that prosecutors coerced a soldier, already under researching, into approaching another officer on an app popular by homosexual and bisexual males in order to draw out information on the policeman’s term, ranking and army unit. MHRCK also revealed a leaked standard from the extreme military Prosecutors’ Office dated March 23 that urges “strict managing of same-sex sex functions avoiding a proliferation of soldier-on-soldier sodomy.”
