Let me get on this fucking high horse for a minute!!

Well sorry my readers but it looks like I am going to cross the line a little… Actually I am going to take a fucking big running jump over the line and express MY opinion!!

This blog has always been about my journey and my story, I have never used this forum to express my opinion but today I am just going to clamber up on this high horse for a few minutes and have my say… YOU my friend can choose to read it or NOT, you can X out right now or delete the email and you never even have to know what the fuck I am going to ramble about…The decision is yours… AND THAT my dear readers is the reason for my rant!!!

Every path you take, every choice you make has the opportunity to enrich your life, but sometimes obstacles may get in  your way and only YOU can decided is it worth trying to get over those obstacles to reach your goal… But at the end of the day it is YOUR choice!!!

So tell me, why the FUCK has the Australian government chosen to do something so asinine as a plebiscite on gay marriage… What the fuck!! A postal vote, I am not shitting you and I am so fucking embarrassed. Seriously, why in the fucking hell does anyone think this is a good idea? What a total waste of fucking time and money!!! $158 million fucking Australian dollars pissed down the toilet!!
And… that is not even the greatest pisser on this time and money waster. Get this!!! The results of the plebiscite will NOT change the law, it is only to gauge feedback on how Australians feel about Gay marriage. A “YES” vote will allow a bill to be brought forward to amend the law, however it is not guaranteed, the bill still needs to be passed. However…. If enough Australians vote “NO” the prime minister has indicated NO bill will proceed.

So in effect what this means is that a NO vote is binding while a YES vote will place amendments to the existing marriage act under consideration..!! WTF… Under consideration!!! For fucking real!!

I am sorry but I just do not understand for a millisecond why ANYONE else gets to decide who a person can marry? I mean seriously!! Why the fuck does it effect anyone else? My neighbor, or my coworker or the dude who packs my groceries can marry their same sex partner and why would it have ANY possible effect on MY life, MY decisions, MY happiness, MY quality of life… Simple, It doesn’t!! It makes no fucking difference to MY LIFE if my gay neighbors next door want to get married so WHY, tell me WHY the fuck should “I” have any choice in deciding if they CAN?…

I have seen a lot of arguments on this subject and sadly many of them stem from religion so now I have to express my fucking opinion on religion. YOU can believe in whatever GOD you want to, I don’t care!!! Your religious beliefs have ZERO effect on my quality of life… Well you would want that to be the case right??? But it isn’t! Most wars have a religious basis, millions of people have died fighting wars in the name of religion. A HUGE percentage of hospitals in America are run by religious organizations.  Religious organizations are some of the richest organizations in the world and they keep getting richer making money from the ill health and suffering of others. People die all over America getting non existent or substandard health care from “so called” hospitals which are really just cash cows for “so called” religious organizations!!
There is an incredible amount of hypocrisy in religion, so much so that I cannot even begin to tell you where the hypocrisy begins and ends..!!

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t object to anyone choosing to believe in the god of their choice, I don’t object to someone going to church every Sunday… Fuck, I even don’t object to seeing my religious friends praising the lord on their Facebook wall… What I do object to is “organized religion” as well as the fact that SO many political decisions are made based on religion.

Unfortunately MANY old Victorian principles have a religious basis and more unfortunate is that there are political laws that are still in effect today that come from those OLD Victorian principles. How can we keep progressing as a race if we continue to hold onto those OLD archaic, hypocritical and often smothering Victorian standards!!

Australia has always boasted proudly about how they are diverse, vibrant multicultural country with commitment to equality and a “fair go” for all yet they have such double standards with the LGBT community and its fucking embarrassing.
Here is an example… A gay couple living together and one of them loses their job. The income of their “same sex” partner is taken into consideration when applying for unemployment benefits from social security so “in the eyes of the law” they are in a legal “defacto” relationship. In fact there is a WHOLE fucking LOT of ways that same sex couples are treated EQUALLY.
Back in November 2008 there was a reform to remove same sex discrimination from a wide range of  federal laws such as taxation, superannuation, immigration, child support, social security benefits and many more…. so WHY the fuck is a POSTAL vote needed to decide if these couples can legally marry!!

The current Prime minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull needs to grow a set of balls stand up and push that fucking bill through parliament. We don’t need no fucking postal vote, shove that postal vote up your arse and push the fucking bill through because it is the RIGHT thing to do!!

Stop being so fucking embarrassing and just do it!!

Rant over and climbing down off my high horse now 🙂

  1. I can just see you, up on your trusty steed, parading back and forth, in front of the gathered masses, in a rainbow colored floppy hat, wearing a “fuck whomever you want” tyedye tee shirt, waving an umbrella in the air, while you rant on!

    Very well spoken…:)

  2. Nick and I were not married. Yet when trying to apply for insurance, I had to take into account HIS income. But I cannot get anything from HIS social security except the death benefit of a WHOPPING $255 that is to pay for his funeral. His funeral and headstone cost me almost $10K. It’s a JOKE.

  3. So right there Jad and you know after all the money spent on it and divisive shit in the whole community, the useless parliament may just turn around and say, well we don’t care what the ‘majority’ said on the ballot, we don’t support gay marriage rights anyway! Fuckers!
