Typical! Absolutely bloody typical.

All you both can do is sling mud.

No application of thought ... nothing ... just call people names.

Sad it is. Typical though.

And in another 30 years we will have yet another inquiry into how children ended up, scared as hell, being raised by same sex couples after their parents died.



What does this have to do with same sex marriage?

Same sex couples can already adopt.

We're all gay in America. All because the Supreme Court said gays can marry.

Slippery slope indeed.

I'll be upfront - I have no problems with those of the same sex getting married. I am aware that this survey was in regards to marriage, and only marriage, but I am not so naive that only the homosexuals "win" this outcome. The entire community does.

LGB? That's fine. The other letters afterwards? That's going too far, and this paves the way.

Just my opinion, of course.

It's a shame that we can't let people love whom they want.

Freedom, individuality, individual rights, should be universal.

No not slinging mud just pointing out the obvious.

Of course you missed that part as you are far too busy trying to force your opinion on everyone else.

Im not 100 percent certain but believe phoenix is a psychologist who directly works with people effected by this sorta thing. So he may see a side of it the public generally doesnt.

As for me. Im not against gay marriage. my biological father was gay. When my parents were divorced i lived two weeks out of each month at my fathers with his husband/boyfriend. but the whole 15 billion genders and pronouns invented would be a slippery slope to me. Thats the crazyness i believe other posters talk about.

Right, well that goes a long way to explain why the member thinks they know best for everyone else.

Perhaps your right, I guess all we can do is ride the wave and see where we end up . Personally I don't see it as a slippery slope.

Not much is going to change other than these couples having a peice of paper that binds them as married.

Hey if people wanna get married i say let them.

Also keep in mind Australian culture is different from american. America has kinda gone off the rails culturally as of lately. Too polarized and self destructive. Caught up in too much ultimately inconsequential things. Australians are generally on a more even keel so it may not end up as 'slippery a slope' for them.

But it has gotten a bit much in my opinion here in america with invented pronouns genders people identifying as elves and animals and people trying to make their personal freedoms and rights supersede those of the common man/woman and everyone else.

Hopefully australia wont go that far and will keep things more egalitarian.

I generally have a live and let live mindset. As long as its not hurting or infringing on others i dont see any harm in gay marriage.

We're slowly becoming more like America though, which is troubling, you will know if we go full retard here if Pauline Hanson ever gets into the prime minister's position. Fingers crossed we don't go there.

I like the live and let live attitude , I agree as long as we're not hurting or infringing others I'm all for it.

No mud slinging or name calling from me, I just said you have a "bigoted opinion"... which you do.

There is no argument against same sex marriage that isn't bigoted, so just a statement of fact.

You seem emotional... why are you so emotionally invested in other people's life choices?

Also it's fun laughing at queenslanders, some even take it as far as hitting cane toads back over the Queensland border where they belong, especially around state of origin time.

It is not the majority at all.

Australian Population : 24 000 000+

People who voted: Roughly 12 500 500

YES voters : 7 million. That's about 28% of the population

So it works out to be around 62% of 65% of 100%

Not to mention the current state of the Liberals ATM,

They will not be elected next election. So that leaves Labour, and i i dare say Bill Shorten does not want it. It will be relinquished.

There was an 80% return rate on the survey of eligible voters, that is considered a majority return and statistically viable.

Bill Shorten totally supports same-sex marriage, and it is Labor policy to support same-sex marriage as well.

www.sbs.com.au...


Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten wants same-sex marriage to be a reality within weeks after the 'yes' campaign won the national postal survey.


You are wrong.

However, eligible voters are only around 16 million... and the 4 million that didn't vote either don't care one way or the other (so can be discounted), or would have a similar ratio of yes/no to the rest of the population.

So yes, it was a clear majority.

No, obviously, children and those ineligible to vote should have voted as well. Clearly not a majority of people in Australia.
