Turkmenistan is located in Central Asia by Afghanistan. Turkmenistan shines a bright light on that same double standard, again having same sex acts between women labeled “OK” by the government, while men caught performing homosexual acts can be charged with sodomy. Their anti-sodomy law was last updated in the late nineties and can leave men behind bars for a couple of years. While a few Asian countries have laws against homosexuality, the double standard for men and women here, earn Turkmenistan a spot on our list. It really makes you wonder what exactly you would have to do to break that law.
