Yemen has a very specific and disturbing penal code as far as gay rights go, especially when you take into account the added double standard. Two different articles in their law define the exact homosexual acts and punishments based on gender and situation. Homosexuality between men, or anal penetration, is punishable by prison time or whipping if they’re unmarried, or death by stoning for married men. Homosexual acts between women, or “stimulation by rubbing,” is punishable with up to three years of jail time if it is premeditated, or up to seven years for the offender if the offense was done “under duress.”
