Yes, that's a very strange video from Australian Julia Gillard. It sounds like she's against the whole concept of "traditional" marriage, period......gay or straight. I can certainly understand her personal opposition to many of the "traditional" customs (white dresses, father giving away the bride, etc.) but to impose her views politically upon others seems to totally go against her desire to let people choose the type of relationship they want to be a part of, just as she has done herself. Very odd.
It's consistent with what she has said before, so she meant it. I wish she had more insight, or was less of a narcissist, or something.
Was that supposed to make sense?
One of the biggest disappointments in atheist, and feminist, politicians - Julia Gillard says "I'm against gay marriage because when I was a student I didn't like the whole white dress and virgin and walk down the aisle thing and be a man's property thing. I don't want that for me, so I'm against gays getting married". (paraphrased)
Carl, thanks for the video. Quite moving. It's so strange to be..... normal!
Some courageous folks in W. Virginia sue for marriage equality....
The consequences of repealing DADT (Don't Ask, Don't Tell). It's a beautiful thing.
New Jersey judge rules in favor of marriage equality.... it's been a long battle there and I am sure this is not the final say
A federal court states unnecessary sex-assignment surgery on child may be unconstitutional.
That's a good move. " a federal court has concluded that a medically unnecessary sex-assignment surgery on a child with an intersex condition could be a violation of the Constitution. This marks an important step forward in seeking justice for “M.C.,” a young man who was needlessly subjected to the procedure as an infant in the care of the South Carolina Department of Social Services."
Progress is incremental. Pacific Standard.
"Today clinicians find that parents and affected individuals often come with some background knowledge of intersex, often knowledge influenced by the rights movements of sexual minorities. As a consequence, intersex seems today to be generally treated with less shame, secrecy, homophobia, and transphobia"
In states with marriage equality, can prisoners marry each other?
There can be a lot of definitions for sex offenders.... I doubt many are adults of the same sex interested in adults of the same sex. But there are nuances in the article I didn't think of.
Ruth, that's hilarious.
