For those of us interested, I thought I’d Google and see what other legendary countries have marriage equality;
*South Africa (2006)
*New Zealand (2013)
*The United Kingdom (2014)
*The United States (2015)
The laws in Slovenia and Finland are expected to take effect in 2015 and on 1 March 2017, respectively; in addition, following a constitutional referendum, Ireland is expected to introduce legislation in 2015 making same-sex marriage legal.
In the United States, same-sex marriages have been ruled legal by the Supreme Court.
In Mexico, same-sex marriages are only performed regularly in Mexico City, Quintana Roo, Coahuila and Chihuahua, but these marriages are recognized by all Mexican states and by the Mexican federal government.
Australia does not yet allow same-sex marriage. Shocked? So are we.
According to a Crosby/Textor poll, 72% of Australians support marriage equality.
Of those 72%, I’d like to give a special round of applause to the following supportive groups within our nation:
So basically our Prime Minister won’t follow 18+ reputable, leading countries, listen to 72% of his population or acknowledge his sister’s 12 year lesbian relationship as worthy of marriage.
Here’s hoping this latest decision in the USA will change his mind. If not, well lets not let one idiot stop us from being ourselves and demanding equality. If he doesn’t want to be known as the guy who fought for our rights then fuck him, we’ll vote someone in who truly does care.
