124 - Love is Love


Generally, I don't get too involved in politics. In fact before our current leaders came in, I'd have to say I didn't really pay attention at all. Which is bad I know. Worse is that the main reason I'm aware now is that I dislike oh so much of what they do. There are a plethora of reasons why I don't like Tony Abbott. One of these is his stance on marriage equality. I simply don't understand why I should be allowed to marry the person I love (if I ever find him!!), but people in my family, or my friends can not. Today in Perth around 5,000 people (and numerous pets) gathered, in the rain, to rally for the opportunity for a free vote on the issue of marriage equality. These rallies have been held all around Australia and we can only hope that eventually the message will get through. Love is love.

  3. Oh, yes indeed!! Love is love and I learned that many years ago when I married and was living in Texas -- we had to go to California to be married because it wasn't allowed in Texas! Fortunately, things have changed there over the years!! Hope you have a great new week, Aimee!!

  7. Glad to see the rally. But disappointed that Australia, of all countries is lagging behind. Doesn't TA have a gay sister or other close relative? You'd think that would make him more receptive. Moron!

  14. Tony Abbott strikes me as very much like our prime minister Harper, so I'm sure I'd despise him just as much as I do ours!
