Australia's Prime Minister Needs to Get With It

The Prime Minister of Australia is taken to task over the same-sex freedom to marry.

There is a growing number of Australian mums, dads, grandparents, brothers and sisters who are disillusioned with the Prime Minister's old, tired and unjustified objection to same-sex marriage. These Australians want their loved ones to have the same rights as everyone else to marry the person they love regardless of whether they are gay.

These Australians are everyday people, parents and children, friends and workmates. They live dignified lives and their belief in equality is driven by love of family and nation. They are every day Australians, of all ages and circumstance who support the Greens and our push for marriage equality. These are the people the Prime Minister insulted with her comments last night while delivering her Gough Whitlam Oration.

All Australians should have their rights to love, sex, and marriage with any consenting adults. Australia needs to move forward to full marriage equality.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
