Huh (1).

(Wednesday of Huh, Part 1)

So Australia’s postal survey on same-sex marriage was a solid win in favour of allowing equal rights. Well … I say “solid”, but it was about what one could reasonably expect the result to be: About 61% Yes.

Would I have liked it to be a 95% Yes slaughter, leaving the noisy bigoted minority reeling in their empirically proven Nobody Likes You status? Sure. But as dreameling himself has pointed out, 60% give or take is what Finland’s actual vote evened out at, so that’s probably a realistic planet-Earth real-life-humanity result that we can take as a good sign.

And a win is a win.

Next challenge: Will the Australian government actually pass the law? Promptly and easily and without any more shitty fucking around?

Let’s put it this way: Over here in Finland, the fabled westbound metro route (länsimetro) is set to finally open on the 18th of November.

That’s this Saturday, which means Australia has until Friday to get shit done.

I’m pretty sure the länsimetro will be open and operational before Australia allows same-sex marriage. And that’s pretty embarrassing. But I am open to being proved wrong.

    “Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his government would aim to pass legislation in parliament by Christmas.”

    That’s slow. But okay – again, planet Earth.

    61% is good enough for me. Let’s see if it’s good enough for politicians. Here in the US, it isn’t. Cheers, as “they” say.
