No, I’m not stopping. Nor am I sorry.
Quite aside from Ilya, who was not an Australian when I met him and who now is one, and one with whom I am delighted to share citizenship … and aside from his better half Jade who I have yet to meet … and aside from all the others I don’t have time to mention and nor should I have to in order to avoid the misapprehension that I hate them … here’s another good Australian who is basically saying the same thing I have been trying to say here. Maybe if I repost, and say this in as many different ways and as many different voices as I can, it will stick.
Yes, this is a polarising issue. Yes, it is binary and it sets “us” against “them”, and puts anyone on the “No” side as my opposition, if not my enemy. It is the Australian government who has made it that way. They did it intentionally, with this postal survey. And that is an idea I hate.
I don’t really have it in me to hate people. Most of you know me well enough to know that. I’m sure I could be encouraged to, for personal reasons, but hypothetical situations involving rapists and mass-murderers … of course I don’t like them. I want them gone. Rehabilitated or turned into garden mulch, I don’t really care. Hate them? Maybe. I certainly hate what people do. And in this case, it is what the No voters are doing, with the endorsement of a government who tacitly support the idea that LBGT and anti-LBGT are two equal sides that deserve equal respect and equal voice, while only the anti-LBGT side actually deserves certain rights, that I hate.
Yes, I hate.
Now, let’s hear from someone else on the Fuck The No Voters I Don’t Care About Their Motivations side. Over to you, Kai.
Thank you. And for context, I don’t know the guy, never met him. This is a share-of-a-share, but Mr. Wild posted publicly for this purpose so I am assuming there’s no problem with getting the message to as many different channels as possible. And obviously, this post is right in line with my ideology and my goddamn motherfucking rhetoric.
Also, Kai’s beard and Tom Hardy games are both strong as fuck.
