A timely reminder

With only a couple of weeks left in October, I’d like to send a timely reminder to anyone in Australia who might be hesitating over this, and make sure my close-knit cadre of regular readers are in the loop.

New Zealand – yes, that New Zealand – has come out with a dire warning of things to come if Australia follows in their footsteps on same-sex marriage. I mean, follows way, way behind in their footsteps. And in the footsteps of the USA.

You know the USA. They’re the ones who have Nazi rallies instead of universal health care. Those guys.

Anyway yeah. Learn from New Zealand!

Yeah but no seriously, it’s a joke. Turns out they’re fine. Get your shit together Australia, I’m going to be making an inspection visit on the 24th of December and I’m going to be deciding who’s naughty and who’s nice.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    You mean, like a warning that absolutely nothing will happen to anyone who isn’t gay as a result of gay marriage legalization? The horror!
