Poofta marriages back on the table

Pandy 30 November 2007 81

(Yeah yeah sepi. The highjacking of the word ‘gay’ is offensive too. So what about the dykes? (on or off bikes) should they not be allowed to marry?)

So Simon Corbell hopes that the new Rudd government will not block his legislation to allow gay marriages.

Anyone want to lay bets that rudd will not allow the term marriages to be used becasue it would be offensive to his core “working families”? “Union” is my bet on being a more acceptable term to Rudd.

They also want to be able to be recognised as each other’s next of kin. Currently they are kept out of hospital rooms etc when it is ‘close family only’ for visits.

Because they want more than to just facto eachother, they want to turn their relationships into mere on-paper formalities.

If that’s all it’s about then why don’t we just call what they have a same sex de facto, or something?

Felix its so they can access their spouses superannuation. Lets not be so unrealistic to discount gay lovers from the vices of stabbing their partner in the back to get a hold of a nice juicy pot of cash.

I assumed it was some kind of peudoboganism for maximal offense and media attention. Which worked out brilliantly.

I was re-reading this thread, and all of a sudden felt disgusted with us all. Surely it’s spelt ‘poofter’? How did we get this far without the spelling police stepping in?

Pussy, there are many Federals laws that will not apply to same sex relationships becasue they are not married defacto or otherwise.

What is the big deal with gays needing to get married for ‘legal’ reasons? I thought if you lived de-facto with somebody for a certain amount of time that legally it was as good as being married to them?

All of your opinions are wrong.

patients grasshopper. Johnboy has scanned it and will be putting it up with his thoughts on the article shortly.

Skidbladnir Skidbladnir 9:28 am 04 Dec 07

scan or copy the article, man! (or woman!)

VYBerlinaV8 VYBerlinaV8 6:59 am 04 Dec 07

I checked the article – wow, what a load of absolutely nothing! I mean, it’s kinda funny that I got quoted and all, but the article didn’t actually say anything! If that’s the standard it takes to get published in the CT, I think I’ve discovered a good retirement job!

How did Jess “the turtle” make it into this discussion?
