There are already kids, in schools, talking about same-sex relationships.
A boy was told he “could wear a dress next year if he felt like.’
What’s the world coming to?!
Mothers appear to have become a key weapon in the campaign to promote the ‘no’ vote in the upcoming postal plebiscite on marriage equality, with the first television ad in the campaign airing last night.
A least three mothers, that is.
Unfortunately for the ‘no’ campaign – of which the best advertising agencies in the country have refused to work with – the ad falls particularly flat. Possibly because it’s suggesting the vote is about something other than a vote for equality in enabling same-sex couples to marry.
The ad carries the line that “in countries with gay marriage parents have lost their right to choose,” following a mother’s plea that, “when same-sex marriage passes as law overseas, these types of programs become widespread and compulsory.”
We’d drop the full YouTube code here, but would rather not. You can check it out yourself, if you really need to.
Or just enjoy these tweets.
