SSM got up…finally. The conservatives in the LNP coalition, a few Catholic arch bishop’s, dear Lyle Shelton with his merry bunch of Christians and last but not least that wonderful NOT Murdoch rag in The Australian (that speaks for a third of us at best…go figure?), gave the NO case a good crack but their argument was piss-poor and in the end weight of numbers (and sense) spoke volumes.
#metoo – men got to feel the rage of numerous years of power misuse across a lot of professions. Unfortunately, in the finest traditions of the shhh….don’t talk about sex brain imprint that functions with aplomb in the overwhelming majority of us, we won’t get anywhere fast with on sexual harassment in Australian society anytime soon.
I expect 2018 to be just as bad if not worse.
Polyamory lost its momentum in Victoria with PolyVIC shutting down. Sad that it never got the support it deserves but we are pretty well institutionalised here in Australia through 200+ years of marriage, affairs & divorce and unfortunately are happy to accept the happy times, arguments and other collateral damage as the norm.
I read another magnificent book called ” What Love Is, And What It Could Be” by Carrie Jenkins. A must read if the subject of human relationships and sexuality intrigues you.
And lastly, and to end on a happy note, I am pulling my weight in the gender wars by employing a 50/50 split so big-up’s to moi!
Happy New Year y’all.
