Today, I really did think Australia would vote in favour of equality… IT IS SURELY TIME WE ALLOWED ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MAKE A COMMITMENT OF LOVE TO EACH OTHER, to GET MARRIED.
Surely this is a basic human right, and should not be exclusive to heterosexuals… Who the heck do these people discussing the issue ad nauseum think they are… is not equality for everyone????
There are many times these days that I feel ashamed to be part of the ‘human’ race. On an ABC site for The Drum, of which I am listening to at the moment (perhaps stupidly!?) it has been argued that the “Prime Minister Tony Abbott was right to argue that marriage should be between a man and a woman and that the Australian people should decide if there is to be a change.” In my humble opinion… what a load of bollocks.
It is not about what ‘the people’ think, it is about equality and human rights for everyone, our gay community included.
But if it must be what ‘the people want’, then please, bring it on!
That is all everyone asks; let us speak, and stop making it a political baton!!!
