A South Korean constitutional court ruled it is unlawful to have same-sex relations within the country’s military.

In a five-to-four vote the court upheld the law, citing a possible risk to the military’s combat readiness and undermining discipline.

South Korea law requires men between the ages of 18 and 28 to serve in the armed forces for almost 20 months.

However, activists were critical of the ruling, claiming it will only incite violence and discrimination against gay military members.
