The Irish Vote

 

The Irish have just given the green light to same-sex marriage and immediately Australia's 'inability' to achieve marriage equality is branded as an 'international embarrassment'. I am not embarrassed - although I must admit every time a lesbian looks at me I get the feeling she thinks, "That's why I'm not a heterosexual" ☺

Anyway, Australia has far bigger problems - like stopping public servants from wearing ugg boots and onesies to work and exempting tampons from the GST -, so why all the fuss? (Of course, Australia's problems pale into total insignificance when compared to America's whose spineless president has just negotiated a 'historic agreement' with Iran over its nuclear program in which its Supreme Leader Khamenei has conceded to amend his cry of “Death to America” to “Death to America for research purposes only”)

So let's allow gays in the military! Anyone dumb enough to want to be in the military should be allowed in. And let them get married! Why shouldn't they be as miserable as the rest of us? ☺

End of story.
