Since the Sydney Mardi Gras theme this year was "Say something" and although I'm almost a month behind the eight ball I'm adding my say here and now.
I support Gay Marriage!
I believe that the traditional idea of marriage being between a man and a woman is a religious idea. The government of Australia should not make decisions based on religious belief!
I believe that two people in love should be given every opportunity to commit to on another and share that love in any type of ceremony that takes their fancy.
As far as I'm concerned sexual preference or identity does not hold any sway when it comes to committing to someone else.
SO....Once the Australian government realises that I am correct (as usual) then I have some suggestions for ways to fill the time previously taken debating the gay marriage issue.
-Divorce rates in heterosexual couples. (what is up with that??!)
-Banning marriage for people on their 5th or 6th trip down the aisle regardless of sexuality (greedy much!)
-Why my dog feels the need to chew the crotch out of my undies. (just mine, no one else's!)
-Passing a law against wearing tights as pants. (they are NOT PANTS!! They are to be worn under shorter dresses for modesty or at the gym ONLY!!)
-Reducing the price of chocolate and coffee. (that one explains itself)
-Giving compulsory Romance lessons to teenage boys (apparently no one on the facebook page has any romance in their lives!!! Me included!! That's shocking!)
-Tightening Boat people laws again (Yes I CAN say that, Its MY hubby's job to board the boats they enter Aussie waters in, Its dangerous! I want him to stay safe!!)
-A complete overhaul of the mental health system in Australia.
-Providing Incentives to study for stay at home mums.
-A nationwide inquest into why clothing (especially women's) are different sizes/dimensions depending on the store they are in. (Apparently I range from a size 10-16 depending where I shop. FRUSTRATING!)
-How Julia Gillard can have such shocking hair when her partner owns a chain of hairdressing salons (at the same time look at if medicare will cover her earlobe reduction surgery)
I know that there are going to be divided opinions on this topic. That's fine BUT make sure you are polite in your comments. Being Rude automatically makes you WRONG!
(And I swear to Gucci that if ANYONE defends wearing tights as pants I will report you to the fashion police IMMEDIATELY!)
