The Saudis use beheading to cure homosexuals, Iran hangs them Ahmadinejad said no poofs in Iran, The Islamic State throws gays from tall buildings then stones them to death if they survive the fall. Why are people silent on the Islamic death penalty for gays?

So where do the muslim Labor MP's stand on gay marriage, any comment for or against from- Ed Husic,Ann Aly,Jihad Dib, Sam Dastyari or Greens Mehreen Faruqi on gay marriage in Australia?

All six of Germany's Muslim members of parliament voted in favour of same-sex marriage as Angela Merkel faced criticism for opposing the bill and announcing: "Marriage is between a man and a woman."

Anne Ali..Muslim member for Cowen (Australia)

"...The two candidates also clashed over their positions on same-sex marriage.

Dr Aly said she supported marriage equality and supported Labor's position on the issue.

"I support marriage equality because I come from a culture and a tradition where women often aren't allowed to pick and choose who they are going to marry," she said.

"When you've been in that situation it's really hard to walk past and to say to other people 'Well you can't pick who you're going to marry either'."

Ed Husic Fed member for Chifley

Labor frontbencher Ed Husic has become the latest Labor MP to switch position and back same-sex marriage, in a sign of the growing momentum for the potentially landmark social reform.

I think thats both of them.

Where is the outrage from feminists over muslim women not being allowed to choose who they marry, do you consider Ann Aly a reliable source for this info?

What about the other Labor and Greens MP's any comments from them?

More than 500 imams got together to protest in the UK, they didn't protest about child brides,FGM, beheading poofs or killing apostates and blasphemers or even Islamic terror, they were protesting about gay marriage.

SPEECH ON THE SAME SEX MARRIAGE BILL 2013

Posted on 31/10/2013

"I rise today on behalf of the Greens to speak strongly and proudly in support of the Same Sex Marriage Bill 2013.

I would like to begin by acknowledging the gallery full of supporters of the LGBTI community, who have worked hard for many years to advocate for equal rights. I also pay tribute to the work and passion of many others who have been unable to join us today but whose work has been fundamental to removing discrimination in our society."

You can look up the rest yourself.

I take it you are pro same sex marriage? seeing as you're so vehemently outraged by those who oppose?

Family law recognises same sex couples in Australia.

Moron Been Lying can't work out which side of the issue he wants to be on. Tries blasting the Muslim MP's for not supporting same-sex marriage... then when shown to be wrong about them, starts justifying why we shouldn't be legislating same sex marriage. 

If I told you there were idiots like this around, you wouldn't believe it... sometimes you just have to see the stupidity on display with your own eyes.

I really can't understand why Turncoat just doesn't take the bull by the horns and just introduce the legislation.

There's almost 70% support. Votes he may lose from the religious right and homophobes he'll pick up elsewhere and lets face it..I can't see the Fred Niles ever voting Labor...there's no need for any stupid referendum or plebiscite.

Oh course it can be, but Turnbull knows that if he gives an inch on this, enough of the loony right God bothers will leave the party and it will be the end for him. He is a spineless tool who, just like Penny the Wrong before him, has put politics ahead of what is right. With around 5% of the population being active church goers, one would have thought that this plebiscite will be a lay down misere, but apart from the Gay community and all the attention seekers putting poofy rainbow frames on their facebook profiles who really cares?

Do enough Australians who support same sex marriage give a big enough fuck to be bothered filling in the vote card and posting it back? I doubt that there will be a 50% voter turnout on this, most people just aren't that engaged by it. Many like me are fucking pissed off that our parliament are even wasting time on this shit. The Churchs should get on board. They might get a few more wedding bookings out of it. 

Turnbull should have passed legislation legislating it months ago, not only would it have put the greens and Shorten on the back foot it would have kick started the economy though the 'Fabulous' wedding planning industry. Marriage is a crook anyway. My Beautiful wife and I have been happily married for 30 years in a few weeks. Bur we aren't still together because of a certificate.

Talking of "still calling Australia home" these citizenship "outings" are getting ridiculous.

Barnaby Joyce is a Kiwi :D

And did Tony Abbott actually ever give up his UK citizenship?

I know when I became an Aussie by swearing and getting my little gum tree, my UK citizenship was not revoked. All chuckles aside this is getting silly..If Joyce is forced out..how many of our federal MP's are second generation poms? AFAIK, automatic citizenship of some countries lasts two generations. It's half the fucking country.

Would this be a constitutional crisis?

Section 44 of the constitution (thankfully being written in plain, unambiguous language)

Disqualification

A few questions..with all these MP's being disqualified, what does that impact?

All legislation passed or failed since the last election?

Does it invalidate the election it'self if the government would not have had a majority?

Bi elections to be held to replace Ludlum et al? 

Finally oz politics might get interesting.

Seems to be a bit of civil war going on in the Green federal ranks atm mate so no one is looking too good atm.

And Meli - no election needed to replace Ludlum & Waters - they will be replaced by whoever was next on the Green Senate ticket in their respective States. Not sure whether it invalidates any legislation passed since the election. Would be an absolute legal minefield if it did so doubt it would. There would, however, need to be a by-election in New England if it is deemed Joyce was ineligible.

Non of the hansons will be eligable if their GP's were Cits of the old dart..Some time back she said she was going to apply for duel cit.

The topic at hand (snigger) is about love between a couple. Not the religious or accepted norms of decades past. I think you would have preferred the old QLD when homo action was illegal and a staple for blackmail revenue among the "lads"!

What is it about you gay men claiming anyone who makes a Homophobic joke either was interfered with as a child or secretly wants to smoke dick? You arse bandits love to stereotype people don't you. You should stop. It is very hurtful.

Could all you socks go back to using your original names?? Many of your posts make more sense when combined with  some historical understanding of your previously held positions and comments .

I was always going to be a doctor, from a young age I was intrigued by anatomy and physiology, and was always the first with a band aid etc when a friend was injured. 

Prior to starting year 11, I had enrolled in all the appropriate course for medicine; maths, physics and chemistry. I was all set. Then two weeks into the school year I became unwell and spent three days in hospital. It was then that I had an epiphany. My whole life I figured I wanted to be a Dr. because doctors are men and nurses are women, but in hospital I observed first hand what actually happens ( not what the TV says). From that point I realized I wanted to be a nurse. 

Well the shit hit the fan when I told my classmates. Back in the late 80's small town rural Australia male nurses were "gay". Sadly, some of you dumb fucks might still think this way. 

I copped a lot of grief at school, especially from one kid. He was in the year below but was in a whole different weight category to me. That kid punched me in the mouth one four separate occasions, whilst calling fag, pomfret etc. Each time I laughed at him and said that I hope my jaw didn't hurt his hand. The beatings stopped after a week or so. I figured he found someone else to pick on. 

Fast forward 10 years and I in charge of a cardiac surgery ward in Sydney one afternoon when a new staff member was starting. In pranced this particularly effeminate nurse with bleach blonde hair, guess who? Yep, my friendly highschool bully. 

I mention this LB because those stereotypes of latent homosexuality presenting as aggression are real and have merit.

With the postal votes coming out tomorrow..I thought of an old 1970 film..the rise and rise of Michael Rimmer.

There's a scene with hundreds of posties (old english variety with caps and sack), toiling up every tower block staircase to deliver the next round of "the citizens democracy" "votes".

"Watching Michael Rimmer today, what's most astonishing is its extraordinary powers of prophecy. Admittedly, the specifics of the story were pure fantasy (to the best of my knowledge, no British MP has ever murdered the Prime Minister by pushing him off a North Sea oil rig) "

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2007/jun/30/television.comedy

Written by Peter Cook,
John Cleese,
Graham Chapman
Kevin Billington
Starring Peter Cook
Vanessa Howard
John Cleese
Harold Pinter
Arthur Lowe

 

This filum got mixed reviews and sort of disappeared..I seem to remember it was V funny..but maybe I was "not quite myself" when I last saw it a long time ago.

Funny It gets canned because of Cook's wooden acting..yet the original "Bedazzled" is one of my all time favourite films.

Anyway..If you've nothing better to do on the eve of our first step to legislation by popular opinion..

I present for your enjoyment...

Well..I got 3 "survey/ballot thingys in the post today.

I live in an area that overwhelmingly will cast a YES vote.

I wonder..If I were to trot across the highway..and snitch a couple of hundred "ballots" from mailboxes...? (That demographic won't even notice they're gone)

Why we are wasting our tax dollars on this stupidly flawed exercise?

I have literally lost count of how many times it's been true, though.  Direct experience: just about every time I've argued for gay rights, in real life  -  and I've done it more than a few times  -  the guy who was the most homophobic, during the argument, has later, eventually, made a drunken pass at me. 

Homophobia makes no sense if you're actually hetero.  Some guys takes himself out of the competition for women... and I'm supposed to be upset about it?   

Homophobia only makes sense if you're gay or bi or at least bi-curious, and repressing it.

Not necessarily. Remember that a lot of people's fears about other people are due to projection of their own behaviours and beliefs onto them. A pathological liar often believes that people are lying to them, a fraud will often believe people are trying to defraud them, and so on.

The most homophobic people I've ever met are those that put undue pressure onto women to sleep with them, are generally dismissive of consent issues, and are quite aggressive in their pursuit of sexual exploits. Projecting that onto other people, they believe that the homosexual men (or women) they meet are going to pressure them aggressively for sex without much consideration of their consent.

I mean, there's that and the tribalistic fear of the "other" which, in religious circles, most homosexuals and those of non-accepted sexuality get cast as.

That theory holds water, but it doesn't explain the drunken request to suck my dick.

That toxic level of hypermasculinity... I suspect... is more of the same.  Over-compensating.

Your social norms types, or religious types  -  they get bored after a half-hour  -  agree to disagree & move on to another subject.

I wouldn't say that all or even 10% homophones are latent homosexual.

That's just too easy.

Most of the homophobes both male and female are simply of the "it's different to me, kill it" elk.

Is it simply a coincidence that most homophones have more than one "phobia" ?

The problem IMHO is simply lazy thinking..this applies to racism too.

on topic..YCMTSU..people are selling their "ballots/survey forms on Ebay now :D

I won't argue with that particular experience, just relating my own. Definitely met one or two latent homosexuals, but the majority of the homophobia I've seen firsthand has been from religious family and from isolated mining town folks.

The religious & tribal folks will argue so long as they're getting a reaction (from the crowd or the victim), and as you say generally stop when they are no longer getting that. There are one or two people that make their religion such a key part of their identity that homophobia is just part and parcel of their package. Thing is, they're generally dicks already and the homophobia doesn't define them - it's just part of their general asshole persona.

The (primarily young) homophobes will generally be those who aggressively pursue their sexual partners with little regard to said person's wants/needs in the matter. They're the ones I see the projection in.

So am I. The way I see it, we can both be right - there are latent homophobes, there are the tribal/religious types, and men projecting their overly aggressive sexual nature (with lack of consent) onto others. No reason for homophobia to be solely caused by one thing ;)

Well this thread has almost gone full circle.

Looks like the SSM postal survey has been a lot more successful than many pundits predicted, in terms of voter turnout. Some of the vitriol hasn't been too pleasant but I wouldn't be surprised if the yes vote prevails given the size of the turnout. The under 35's seem to know how to tick a box, find a letterbox and post a letter. 

Re the Citizenship Seven saga

Joyce, Nash, Ludlam, Waters, and most importantly, Roberts - Gone

Xenophon & Canavan - keep their seat, though Nick's resigning.

Nats may lose Nash's seat on a recount to the next candidate on the joint LNP ticket to a Lib member. Joyce will renominate for the seat of New England with by-election likely on 2 December. Government loses it's one seat majority until result of by-election.

And then you've got the ROC saga with Sen Cash under heaps of pressure due to her media adviser tipping off the media without her knowledge. Not the best of weeks for Malcolm and his government. But the alternative is worse in my opinion. No way could I accept the grubbiest man in politics to be our PM and now that Ardern has got hold of the Kiwi Government my option of going to NZ if Shorten ever does become PM here is now not an option.

Sad. So. Very. Sad.

Yeah, that's not really an established fact. The media advisor is keeping his mouth shut (all the better to secure a job in another Liberal's staff) and, well, Senator Cash has already proven less than reliable.

I'll spell it out for you Bent - the under 35's seem to only be able to communicate by digit these days. Posting a letter is arcane to many. The leftist argument was that a postal survey would underrepresent the under 35 vote because a higher % than those over 35 wouldn't respond to a postal survey. It seems it hasn't panned out that way.

Re Cash - of course to you it's not an established fact. I wouldn't be surprised at all that she has been entirely truthful as to when she became aware and once she did she said so. The fact is the reason the ALP is going after her sooo hard is because they want the investigation into the donation from the AWU to GetUp stopped in its tracks. No one is looking good in all of this and to be frank I'm sick of it all.
