I have also voted YES as it realy is the only fair and just thing to do.
These Homophobic religious ratbags that tried every possible dirty smear tricks to get people to vote no deserve nothing but our utter contempt.
It all boils down in my book to the simple fact that with ss marriage if one partner dies then the other is able to claim on the deceased partners Super,Life Insurance Property and such like things just the same as a wife can claim her husbands financials at the current time.
It is a no brainer as it will not change the world,the devil will not rise,plagues will not infest the earth etc etc.
As for the totaly insane types of comments that ss marriages fail well guess what so do many male female ones.
Agree and support.
I'm not sure how related this is but it just seems there is alot of extremism in this gender crap going on.
- Almost every week I read about another school in the "should girls be forced to wear a dress/skirt" debate. Parents claiming the skirts are too short, they cannot play like boys. I doubt there is a school around that deliberately made the skirts so short the girls are flashing, but I remember my old school days when the girls raised the hem themselves. Then there is schools where girls are complaining that they now have to wear long pants like the boys no option and want an option to wear a skirt again.
My wife's view was very simple, if we had a daughter she would be wearing the school uniform and if it was a skirt (preferred) it will be a skirt because when you become an adult, the corporate world often does not avail choice in what you wear and school is preparation in to getting a job.
- Reading today a school in Sweden where there is no gender, all gender related stories have been changed and there is no boy or girl, they use a no gender reference "hen". Not sure what the toilets are called?
I mean FFS, yes some 8-9 year olds, males and females are at their most similar physically but also mentally. However little girls still aspire to be princesses and dress up and tend to be less physical and boys want to play with anything with wheels and their play is rougher. What do we do next, make them dress exactly the same and they all have one style of haircut? Toilets are just a common cubical design?
I support the yes vote, if nothing else to provide equal legal status, but is the the above going to be the norm?
